With only two games on this slate, making NBA DFS picks and lineups may be trickier than earlier in the season. So if looking for a different way to play NBA fantasy contests during the NBA playoffs, PrizePicks could be a site that interests you. Instead of building lineups of players, at PrizePicks you are making predictions on player stats or fantasy points, with more correct predictions meaning higher payouts.
PrizePicks provides a big list of stats and fantasy points, and you are able to pick and choose which you want to make a prediction for. Stringing together a few picks can pay out up to 10 times the ur entry fee. You are even able to combine picks across different sports. The only rule is you must make picks for players on at least two different teams.
For the sake of this article, we will take you through four of the best NBA fantasy PrizePicks predictions to make for the NBA Playoffs Round 2 games today.
PrizePicks NBA Fantasy | Playoffs Round 2
It is important to note that, much like odds that update throughout the day, the player totals at PrizePicks are subject to change. So if you like these NBA picks below, it’s wise to jump on them quickly.
Aaron Gordon: Under 25.0 NBA Fantasy Points
PrizePicks uses the same NBA fantasy scoring format as FanDuel, so gamers can use past performances and projections for FanDuel on PrizePicks as well. Today, Aaron Gordon has nearly an 82% chance to be a bust on FanDuel. A big reason for this is how much Gordon’s fantasy value has been tied to his scoring. He scored just 6 points last game, which caused him to finish with 6.2 fantasy points. The Suns are a solid defensive team, so scoring could be tough. The return of Will Barton to the lineup could also take shots away from Gordon, which points to many more avenues for Gordon to go under 25 fantasy points.
Kevin Huerter: Over 2.0 Made Threes
The Hawks have gotten two solid performances off the bench in this series from Kevin Huerter. He has earned starter-level minutes, hitting three shots from downtown in each game. Huerter has hit over two 3-pointers in four of his last five games and exactly two in the other game. With the series shifting to Atlanta, he should continue to bury shots in front of the home crowd.
Jae Crowder: Over 4.5 Rebounds
Jae Crowder has played some terrific basketball for the Suns during the playoffs. Due to his defense and 3-point shooting, he has been able to play high minutes. Naturally, he is going to rack up rebounds. He has totaled five or more rebounds in four of his past five games. The one failure was a complete fluke, as he grabbed zero rebounds in their blowout of the Lakers. Crowder should continue grabbing plenty of rebounds, as he is much more aggressive than the Denver players he will be competing against.
Devin Booker: Over 5.0 Rebounds
Sticking with the same team, Devin Booker’s rebounding total is also too low. He has grabbed double-digit rebounds in two of his last three games. He has seven or more rebounds in four of his past seven games. Denver is going to throw up plenty of shots, with many of them being poor looks. Booker should continue tracking down loose balls and totaling over five rebounds.
