Hello! We are back & better than ever, and at the perfect time of the year. The NBA playoffs are coming fast, but in DraftKings NBA, every night is incredibly important still. Teams are competing for playoff positioning & playoff spots. Let’s get down to business and talk about DraftKings NBA DFS Picks April 4, 2018 point guards position for the night.
DraftKings NBA DFS Picks April 4, 2018 Point Guards
Ben Simmons – $10,200
Simmons is playing at an extremely high level right now, and without Joel Embiid in the lineup for a while, Simmons becomes the top offensive weapon going into the playoffs. There are only so many guys worth $10K, and Ben has gotten to that level. The Pistons are trying for a very faint playoff spot, but they just don’t have the firepower at this point to slow down a team like Philly.
Can Ben Simmons shoot from outside & get big points? Not really. Can he get work done in every other area of the game? Absolutely. He has double-doubles in his last 8 games, with 4 of those being triple-doubles. Against the Pistons, BS is averaging 15 points, 8 rebounds & 8 assists.
Jrue Holiday – $8,100
This is a good pick if the goal is to save a couple of thousands for another position. The Pelicans are in a fight for playoff positioning, so starters should be playing big time minutes no matter what. Both teams are terrible against point guards, but the Grizzlies should definitely be in tank mode at this point. Holiday has been riding a hot streak lately, having a floor of 37 DraftKings points in 4 of last 5 games, with a ceiling of 56.
Holiday also has solid minutes going as well, as he has over 30 minutes in 9 of his last 10 games.
Patty Mills – $4,500
Patty Mills is a guy that will play a huge role for the Spurs coming down the stretch as they work to get a strong playoff spot. Mills is hitting clutch shots lately & playing huge minutes. With the issues going on with Kawhi Leonard plaguing the Spurs all season, new guys have stepped up. Mills has benefited big time from Leonard not being in the lineup. For DraftKings owners, this is great news because he is putting up great stats to win, but not the stats that would make him far too expensive.
He has over 30 minutes played in 9 of his last 10 games, and is now one of the major offensive focus points of the offense. 3 of his last 4 games he has over 25 DraftKings points with shooting at least 6 three-point attempts each game. With the Lakers season basically completed, look for Patty to have another solid DFS night for your lineup.
