Draftkings picks and predictions for tonight's Fever vs. Aces matchup

May 25, 2024 9:00 pm EDT

The WNBA presents a matchup between the Indiana Fever and Las Vegas Aces. Let’s take a look at this game from a Draftkings perspective.

Before we dive into the Indiana Fever vs. Las Vegas Aces game let’s review the rules for the Draftkings single game showdown contest.

Draftkings Single Game Showdown Contest Rules

You have $50,000 to utilize on five players from either team. However, one of those players will be designated as your team captain. The captain accumulates 1.5 times the standard fantasy points. Additionally, the captain is 1.5 times the standard cost of the flex position.

The remaining four players in your lineup will receive the standard fantasy points. Having stated that, it is highly important for you to identify the correct player for your captain position if you hope to win a large field DFS GPP (guaranteed prize pool) showdown contest.

If you have additional questions regarding the rules for the single game showdown contest, I recommend that you check out the Draftkings website for more details.

*I recommend that all readers review the starting lineups for both teams prior to setting your DFS lineup for this one game slate

Here are my Draftkings picks for this evening’s Indiana Fever vs. Las Vegas Aces matchup.

Draftkings Picks

Captain-A’ja Wilson $11,000

Talented Las Vegas center A’ja Wilson arrives at tonight’s matchup with the Indiana Fever playing outstanding basketball. Having stated that, how has Wilson been playing from an offensive standpoint? Let’s review A’ja Wilson’s recent game data to answer that question.

In the Las Vegas Aces first three games played in the 2024 WNBA regular season, A’ja Wilson averaged 24.3 points, 12 rebounds, 3 assists, 1.2 steals, and 2.7 blocks a game.

More recently, in the Las Vegas Aces 98-88 loss to the Phoenix Mercury four days ago, A’ja Wilson played rather well from a statistical perspective. Let me be more specific. A’ja Wilson accumulated 21 points, 13 rebounds, 2 assists, and 3 blocks in the Aces loss to the Phoenix Mercury.

Looking closer at the data just mentioned, in the Las Vegas Aces loss to the Phoenix Mercury earlier in the week, Aces center A’ja Wilson accumulated a robust 49.1 Draftkings points.

I certainly like A’ja Wilson’s matchup tonight? Why? Wilson draws an Indiana Fever team that is currently ranked 12th in overall team defensive rating (109.5) and ninth in total points allowed in the paint (39.3) in the WNBA. Keep in mind that the WNBA has 12 teams in the entire league. Clearly, being ranked ninth and 12th in any team defensive category is not a good thing.

For the reasons just noted, I am rolling with Las Vegas Aces center A’ja Wilson as my captain for tonight’s Draftkings contest.

Flex Plays

Aliyah Boston $7,600

Indiana Fever guard Aliyah Boston has certainly been a key contributor to this the Indiana Fever offense this season.

In the Indiana Fever’s six games played in the 2024 regular season, Aliyah Boston averaged 10.7 points, 6.2 rebounds, 1 steal, and 0.7 blocks a game.

I expect Aliyah Boston to continue her quality play versus the Las Vegas Aces later today.

Caitlin Clark $9,400

Indiana Fever rookie guard Caitlin Clark has wasted little time showing basketball fans that she belongs in the WNBA. In six games played for the Indiana Fever this season, Clark is averaging 16.7 points, 4.5 rebounds, 6.2 assists, 1 steal and 1 block a game.

Additional players I like to play well this evening (Draftkings price noted): Kelsey Plum $8,800: Kelsey Mitchell $6,600: Katie Lou Samuelson $6,000: NaLyssa Smith $7,400: Kate Martin $4,800.
