DraftKings Sportsbook: Wednesday Picks

DraftKings Sportsbook: Wednesday Picks

This article is part of our NBA Picks series.

Cade Cunningham over 3.5 turnovers (-110) vs. Wizards – DraftKings, 1:35 PM CT

Cunningham has committed at least four turnovers in each of the past seven games, and he's averaging 4.9 turnovers during this stretch, not to mention 4.1 turnovers in games where he's seen 30-plus minutes. Hitting this over all season would have been an easy money-maker, and I'm banking on it keeping up Wednesday.

Cody Martin over 21.5 points + rebounds + assists (-105) vs. 76ers – DraftKings, 2:26 PM CT

Martin has been an underrated deep-league fantasy player all season through balanced statlines and a surprising amount of minutes. He's taken on even more usage lately with the Hornets dealing with a myriad of COVID-19 absences. Over the past two games, he's taken 24 combined shots for 33 points, 12 rebounds and eight assists.

Milwaukee Bucks -6.5 (-110) at Miami Heat – DraftKings Sportsbook, 12:45PM CT

These teams have already met twice this season – including four days ago – and produced two very different results. In their first meeting back on Oct. 21, it was the Bucks who were shorthanded, leading to one of the most lopsided results, 137-95 shellacking by Miami, of the Giannis era in Milwaukee. The Bucks got their revenge this past Saturday, winning 124-102 with both Jimmy Butler and Bam Adebayo sidelined. But the Bucks were also without Antetokounmpo for that game. The two-time MVP should be in uniform Wednesday, and I like the Bucks to cruise to a relatively easy win with Butler and Adebayo again out for Miami.

Joe Bartel

Cody Martin over 10.5 points (-110) against PHIDraftKings Sportsbook 1:35 PM CT

I don't think DraftKings has quite adjusted to the loss of offense with LaMelo Ball and Terry Rozier both out due to COVID-19 restrictions. In Martin's first start with the duo's absence he attempted 13 shots against these same 76ers and while I highly doubt the two teams combine for 251 points like they did Monday, Martin's minutes almost guarantee the over will be in play.

Kelly Oubre over 21.5 points (-110) against PHIDraftKings Sportsbook 1:35 PM CT

Wait, TWO Charlotte overs? Again, DraftKings hasn't quite adjusted to the Ball/Rozier absences and it was incredibly apparent Monday that Oubre would be the primary beneficiary given he attempted a whopping 11 more shots than his season average to date. Even if the argument is that Oubre's workload bump was because of Seth Curry/Tyrese Maxey covering him in the backcourt, it's still the exact same opponent Wednesday which should set the stage for Oubre to replicate his offensive emphasis. And if you're someone who buys into week-to-week trends, the 25-year-old Kansas product has scored at least 23 points in five of the last six games.
