The three NFL games on Sunday will get most of the attention today on DraftKings Sportsbook, but don’t forget about the NBA! There are eight games available to wager on, starting with the Pistons vs. the Jazz at 3 p.m. ET and wrapping up with the Warriors vs. the Raptors at 8:30 p.m. ET.
Let’s dive into some of my favorite wagers on DraftKings Sportsbook for Sunday’s NBA slate.
Are the Knicks actually… decent? Probably not, but they have been competitive to start the year. They’ve won five of their first nine games, and they’ve been outscored by an average of just -1.44 points per 100 possessions. Obviously, that’s still not a great number — it ranks 20th in the league — but it’s still better than the Knicks were expected to be.
They’ve been led by Julius Randle, who is on pace for the best season of his career. He’s averaging a career-high 22.6 points, 12.0 rebounds and 7.3 assists per game, and he’s playing a whopping 37.7 minutes per game. That’s a ton of playing time in 2021, and the Knicks have benefited from all those minutes. They’ve increased their Net Rating by +14.4 points per 100 possessions with Randle on the court this season, which is the top mark on the team.
They’re moderate home underdogs tonight vs.
