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

Seattle Storm vs. Las Vegas Aces
June 7, 2024 10:00 pm EDT

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

Before we dive into the Seattle Storm 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 Seattle Storm vs. Las Vegas Aces matchup.

Draftkings Picks

Captain-A’ja Wilson $10,200

Talented Las Vegas center A’ja Wilson arrives at tonight’s matchup with the Seattle Storm 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 seven games played for the Las Vegas Aces in the 2024 WNBA regular season, A’ja Wilson averaged a robust 27.9 points, 12.4 rebounds, 2.6 assists, 2.1 steals, and 2.6 blocks a game. It has to be said, those are some outstanding fantasy numbers coming from the Las Vegas Aces center.

More recently, in the Las Vegas Aces 91-85 win over the Dallas Wings two days ago, Aces center A’ja Wilson played exceptionally well from a statistical perspective. A’ja Wilson accumulated a massive 36 points, 12 rebounds, 2 assists, 6 steals and 1 block in the Aces win over the Wings.

Looking closer at the data just mentioned, in the Las Vegas Aces win over the Dallas Wings earlier in the week, Aces center A’ja Wilson accumulated 68.5 Draftkings points.

I certainly like A’ja Wilson’s matchup tonight? Why? Wilson draws a Seattle Storm defense that has struggled to defend opposing players in the paint all season. Let me be more specific. Through nine games played in the 2024 WNBA regular season, the Seattle Storm are currently ranked a rather low eighth in total points allowed in the paint a game (35.2). Keep in mind that the WNBA has 12 teams in the entire league. Clearly, being ranked eighth in any team defensive category is never a good thing.

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

Flex Plays

Jackie Young $8,000

Las Vegas Aces point guard Jackie Young has been the leader in the backcourt that the Aces offense has needed to win games this season. Having stated that, how has Young been playing recently?

In the Las Vegas Aces last three games played in the 2024 WNBA regular season, Las Vegas Aces point guard Jackie Young has averaged an impressive 17.3 points, 5.7 rebounds, 7.3 assists, and 0.5 steals a game.

I fully expect Jackie Young to continue her outstanding play versus the vulnerable Seattle Storm defense later today.

Additional players I like to play well this evening (Draftkings price noted): Kelsey Plum $7,800: Nneka Ogwumike $8,800: Skylar Diggins-Smith $7,600: Kate Martin $6,900.
