The Cleveland Cavaliers travel to the Footprint Center for a matchup with the Phoenix Suns. Let’s take a look at this NBA game from a DFS perspective.

Before I dive into my Draftkings picks for the Cavaliers vs. Suns game, let’s review an important note regarding the rules and scoring for the single game showdown contests.

For those readers who are not aware, the rules and scoring for DraftKings single game showdown contests are vastly different than the traditional classic contests offered by the platform.

If you need to review the specific rules for the single game showdown contests feel free to check out the Draftkings website.

Here are my Draftkings picks for tonight’s Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Phoenix Suns matchup.

Draftkings Picks

Captain-Jarrett Allen $9,200

Cleveland center Jarrett Allen has certainly been a big contributor to the Cavaliers recently. Let me be more specific. In the Cavaliers last three games played, Allen has averaged a whopping 17.6 points, 9 rebounds, and 2.7 assists a game. Clearly, the Cleveland big man is the key to this Cavaliers offense in the paint.

Later today, Jarrett Allen draws a Phoenix Suns defense that has had significant problems with allowing fantasy points to opposing centers recently. In the last 7 games played in the NBA, the Phoenix Suns are ranked 21st in total Draftkings points allowed a game (58.01) to the center position.

In summary, I love Allen’s chances of posting outstanding fantasy numbers versus this Phoenix Suns team this evening.

Flex Plays

Devin Booker $10,000

Phoenix Suns point guard Devin Booker has quickly ascended to one of the most talented guards in the NBA. Having stated that, how has Booker performed from an offensive efficiency standpoint this season? In 75 games played, Booker has averaged 27.2 points, 4.7 rebounds, 6.9 assists, and 1 steal a game. Clearly, the Phoenix Suns offense runs through Devin Booker.

Looking at the data I just presented even closer I observed that Devin Booker has averaged a robust 46.4 total Draftkings points scored a game. I fully expect Booker to continue to play well later today. Having stated that, Booker will certainly be in my DFS lineup for this one game slate.

Kevin Durant $10,600

How important is Phoenix Suns forward Kevin Durant to this Suns team? Let’s dive into a recent sample size of Kevin Durant’s recent statistical data to get a better idea of his recent performance on the basketball court. In the Phoenix Suns last three games played, Durant has averaged 25.3 points, 8.6 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 2 blocks, and 1 steal a game.

Additional flex plays I like: Donovan Mitchell $10,400: Darius Garland $8,800: Bradey Beal $7,800: Eric Gordon $4,800.
