Today will be one of the final days of DraftKings NBA picks for the regular season. We will update as rosters get more steady towards Wednesday. Enough talk, let’s get to the picking at the guards position for April 9, 2017.
NBA DraftKings Playbook Targets – April 9, 2017 – Guards
Ricky Rubio – $7,900
Rubio got his personal life straight down the stretch of the NBA season. That fact helped Rubio on the basketball court, playing like the explosive point guard Minnesota knew they always had.
Rubio will go against a Los Angeles Lakers team that needs to lose games coming down the stretch. In the last 5 games, the Lakers allowed 58 DraftKings NBA points per game & over 60 DK points in their last 10.
In 3 meetings this year, Rubio averaged 50 DraftKings NBA points per game. He shot 53% from the field & 46% from downtown. Look for Minnesota to cruise tonight.
James Harden – $12,400
Harden may play some reduced minutes tonight, considering that the Rockets don’t have anything left to play for. The Rockets team loved to play all season, but at some point, the team will want to rest up Harden before the playoffs begin.
If the Rockets play Big Game James his normal minutes, it should be an easy cake walk to big numbers against a bad Kings team.
Wesley Matthews – $5,000
Matthews had a strong year for the Mavericks, and should have a good matchup against the Phoenix Suns. The Suns are in tank mode & Matthews has played well lately in terms of stats across the board.
Matthews had at least 4 assists in his last 9 games. He can be up & down as a shooter, but he gets minutes & opportunities. Those opportunities allow him to bring in the key DraftKings NBA stats to make him a target.
