Your best NBA DraftKings bets
Of the 13 games scheduled for the promo period, I like three bets a lot more than the rest. The Suns are my first choice, as they play the worst team in the bubble, the Wizards. The Wizards are without their two All-Stars and will not have the help of Davis Bertans as well.
To me, the Suns are essentially playing against a G-League level opponent in this one, so the Suns are my clear number one. The second team I really like is the Orlando Magic, as they’ll be facing the Brooklyn Nets. Not only have the Nets endured a Thanos-like reduction amongst their roster, but their current team was trounced by 31 points to a Zion-less Pelicans team just a few days ago.
The last team I like is the Lakers. I think Lebron will be extra motivated to get out and make a statement on the big stage in the team’s return to action against the Clippers. The Clippers will be without their sixth man of the year candidate, Montrezl Harrell. The Clippers also probably won’t get much from Patrick Beverly, who recently cleared quarantine, but hasn’t had time to play much in the ramp-up. Choose wisely and enjoy the re-start!
