DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks (4/30/19): NBA DFS Lineups

We're back to another two game slate. This is essentially the best NBA playoff slate we can get. The Boston Celtics will take on the Milwaukee Bucks, while the Houston Rockets and Golden State Warriors will play in what could be the true NBA Finals.

In this article, I will be providing you with my daily fantasy basketball lineup picks for DraftKings on 4/30/19. These DFS lineup picks can vary from higher-priced players and elite options to lower-priced players and value picks on DraftKings.

You can also check out today's FanDuel lineup picks. As always, don't set your lineups too early. Find me in the NBA Chat Room or @BalesSJustin on Twitter.

DraftKings DFS Guards

Kyrie Irving - PG, at MIL ($8,400)

Irving found quite a bit of success in the first game of this series, nearly triple-doubling with 51.75 fantasy points. He has also performed well against the Milwaukee Bucks this season, as he's averaging 22.8 points, 5.0 rebounds, 7.5 assists, and 1.0 block (44.9 fantasy points) in 36.3 minutes per game. Irving will be locked into big minutes, and his price tag is surprisingly low. He can be considered in all leagues tonight.

Eric Gordon - SG/SF, at GS ($5,300)

Eric Gordon has been locked into major minutes for the Houston Rockets, playing 37+ minutes in each of his last four games. In his first game this season, he scored 37 fantasy points. Gordon shot 52.6% from the field in that game, but he shot only 30.8% from beyond the arc, suggesting he comes with more upside. He's also averaging a healthy 29.7 fantasy points in 32.4 minutes per game against the Golden State Warriors in four matchups this season. Gordon is another solid option in all leagues.


DraftKings DFS Forwards

Kevin Durant - SF/PF, vs HOU ($9,100)

Durant has taken his game to the next level recently, as he has played 40+ minutes in each of his last three games. In those contests, he's averaging 43.3 points, 5.7 rebounds, 4.7 assists, 1.0 block, and 1.3 steals (62.3 fantasy points) in 42.0 minutes per game. Durant is playing a significantly larger role in the rotation since the injury to DeMarcus Cousins, and he's far too cheap on this slate. Durant is the easiest play tonight.

Gordon Hayward - SF/PF, at MIL ($5,200)

Hayward isn't playing a massive role in the offense, but he's locked into big minutes and comes with versatility. He has scored 29 and 32.75 fantasy points in his last two games, but he still comes with a low price tag. Hayward isn't the safest option on the slate, but he comes with solid upside. He has also found success against the Milwaukee Bucks throughout the season, and he makes a strong salary relief option in tournaments.


DraftKings DFS Centers

Al Horford - PF/C, at MIL ($6,800)

Horford simply has a game that the Milwaukee Bucks can't seem to figure out. In the first game this series, he utilized the pick-and-pop with versatility to score 49.25 fantasy points. That has been the case in three total matchups this season, as well, as he's averaging 19.7 points, 11.0 rebounds, 5.3 assists, 2.3 blocks, and 1.0 steal (50.1 fantasy points) in 33.3 minutes per game. Horford is the most expensive center on this slate, but the other options are less than ideal. He's far and away the best option tonight.
