DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks (11/3/21): NBA DFS Lineups

I don't know about you, but I am sure ready for some mid-week hoops! A total of 22 teams will take the floor on Wednesday, allowing plenty of ways to build out some DraftKings lineups. As always, let's take a closer look at the slate to see which matchups will be worth attacking for DFS purposes.

Game Totals:

  • CHI @ PHI - 217
  • BOS @ ORL - 215.5
  • NYK @ IND - 218.5
  • TOR @ WAS - 216.5
  • POR @ CLE - 219.5
  • ATL @ BKN -  217.5
  • LAC @ MIN -  214.5
  • DEN @ MEM -  212.5
  • DAL @ SAS - 214.5
  • CHA @ GSW - 226.5
  • NOP @ SAC - 220.5

As stated above, there are only two games with an O/U of at least 220 as out of all 22 teams in action, 15 ranks in the bottom half of the league in PACE rating. While the NOP/SAC matchup has the second-highest O/U on the slate, it's worth noting that both teams are playing on the second night of a back-to-back set, so if any game has the chance to underwhelm it's this one.

With all that said, let's dive into my favorite plays for Wednesday's slate. This article will provide you with my daily fantasy basketball lineup picks for DraftKings on 11/3/21. You can also check out today's FanDuel NBA DFS lineup picks. Remember to monitor injury news as the slate can completely change before lineups lock.


DraftKings Guards - NBA DFS Lineup Picks

Stephen Curry - PG, GSW vs. CHA ($11,000)

If there was ever a time to spend up to get Curry in your lineup, this is it. He's put up just under 54 DK points per game this season and should be well-rested after only playing 27 minutes in Saturday's blowout win over the Thunder. Not to mention Vegas has this matchup as the highest O/U on the slate, so there should be plenty of points scored. In his lone game against the Hornets last season, Chef Curry posted 29 points, nine assists, four rebounds, and one steal.

Anthony Edwards - SG, MIN vs. LAC ($8,400)

If you haven't heard, D'Angelo Russell has been ruled out of Wednesday's game with an ankle injury. While this should lead to increased opportunities for multiple guys, Edwards figures to be the biggest beneficiary. As a matter of fact, Edwards' usage rating has skyrocketed nearly 8% during the 14 minutes he's seen the floor without Russell. There's always a chance he gets the Paul George treatment, but Edwards' floor should be high in this one.

Others to consider: Cole Anthony ($7,600), Darius Garland ($6,400), Derrick White ($6,300), T.J. McConnell ($5,100)

DraftKings Forwards - NBA DFS Lineup Picks

RJ Barrett - SF, NYK @ IND ($6,900)

Barrett has simply been on a tear over his last two games, putting up just under 47 DK points per contest. Things should continue on Wednesday against the Pacers, who have been a bottom-five defense so far this season. For whatever reason, Barrett has seen his price tag decrease by $100 after posting 27 points, six rebounds, and a steal in Monday's loss to the Raptors.

OG Anunoby - SF, TOR @ WAS ($7,700)

OG is coming off a mammoth outing on Monday where he notched a season-high 36 points en route to 50 DK points. He gets a dreamy matchup against the Wizards on Wednesday, who have allowed the third-most DK points to opposing small forwards this season. Anunoby is averaging a crazy 36.5 minutes per game this season, so his floor should remain relatively high by default.

Others to consider: Jayson Tatum ($9,900), Kyle Kuzma ($7,100), Michael Porter Jr. ($6,100)

DraftKings Centers - NBA DFS Lineup Picks

Karl-Anthony Towns - C, MIN vs. LAC ($10,600)

Towns is seeing an elite 33% usage rate without D'Angelo Russell on the floor this season and with the latter ruled out in advance of Wednesday's game, he has no choice but the carry the load offensively. The Clippers have been a bottom-tier team when it comes to defending opposing centers, so KAT should have his way early and often in this one.

Jakob Poeltl - C, SAS vs. DAL ($7,000)

Poeltl has cooled off after his impressive two-game stretch last week but finds himself in a perfect bounce-back spot against the ailing Mavericks. Not only is Dallas playing on the second night of a back-to-back, but it's likely they will be without Kristaps Porzingis and Maxi Kleber once more, leaving Dwight Powell and Willie Cauley-Stein alone to fend with Poeltl. This game has sneaky shootout potential, so look for Poeltl to get back on track on Wednesday.

Others to consider: Montrezl Harrell ($6,600), Jaren Jackson Jr. ($5,500)
