Tonight, the NBA presents a matchup between the Phoenix Suns and Minnesota Timberwolves. Let’s take a look at this game from a DFS perspective.

Prior to discussing my Draftkings picks for the Suns vs. Timberwolves 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 tomorrow’s Phoenix Suns vs. Minnesota Timberwolves matchup.

Draftkings Picks

Captain-Anthony Edwards $10,400

Minnesota Timberwolves shooting guard Anthony Edwards has been posting some outstanding offensive numbers in 2024. Let me be more specific. In the Minnesota Timberwolves last four games played this season, Anthony Edwards averaged 25.8 points, 6 rebounds, 4 assists, and 0.7 steals a game.

Looking at Anthony Edwards’s last four games even more closely you will see that Edwards certainly does not mind shooting the basketball. Over the last four games just mentioned, Anthony Edwards has accumulated a whopping 67 field goal attempts.

That means over the course of the last four games that Anthony Edwards has shot the basketball almost 17 times a game. Clearly, Anthony Edwards is the heart and soul of this Minnesota Timberwolves offense.

It should also be mentioned that Anthony Edwards will be facing a Phoenix Suns defense that has had issues containing opposing shooting guards lately. In the last 30 games played in the NBA, Phoenix is ranked a rather low 23rd in total Draftkings points (43.6) allowed a game to the shooting guard position.

Flex Plays

Devin Booker $10,200

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 in 2024? In 82 games played for the Suns this season, Booker has averaged 27.1 points, 4.5 rebounds, 6.9 assists, and 1 steal a game.

Looking at the data I just presented even closer I observed that Devin Booker has averaged a robust 45.9 total Draftkings points scored a game.

Kevin Durant $9,800

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 22.3 points, 6 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 1 block, and 1 steal a game.

Additional flex plays I like this evening: Rudy Gobert $8,400: Bradley Beal $7,600: Mike Conley $6,800: Eric Gordon $2,200.
