3 NBA DraftKings Studs to Target on 3/4/19
Giannis Antetokounmpo, SF/PF, Milwaukee Bucks
DraftKings Price: $11,500
The Milwaukee Bucks didn't have the availability of Eric Bledsoe nor Malcolm Brogdon during Saturday night's loss to the Utah Jazz. With them both on the sidelines, All-Star captain Giannis Antetokounmpo went off for a massive 43-point, 14-board, 8-dime effort, finishing with 79.0 DraftKings points.
While one or both of his teammates could play tonight, is there reason for the Bucks to risk it? They take on the Phoenix Suns in what should be a cake-walk win for the Eastern Conference leaders, who have already claimed a playoff spot.
Without them, Giannis is the clear top play of the night. With them, well...he's still either the top or second-best player of the night. With a total set at 233.0 points, the game should no doubt be fast paced and lead to numerous opportunities for Giannis to meet or exceed his career best averages of 27.1 points, 12.6 boards, and 6.0 assists.
He's topped 50 DraftKings points each of his past three times against the Suns, scoring 61.5 DraftKings points in his last game at Talking Stick Resort Arena. At 58.3 DraftKings points, we have him projected as the second-best player on tonight's slate. Check the next slide to see who's number one.
