NBA DFS Picks and Pivots: Wednesday, August 5

Welcome back to NBA DFS Picks and Pivots! After months of being on pause, the league is back and so is DraftKings with big prizes pools to take down so let’s get started with our top NBA DFS picks for today’s slate!

My name is Adam Strangis and I'll be subbing in for Brian on Wednesday. Tuesday was an alright day with Ghost having a great call on Kelly-O but the Houston/Portland game wasn't exactly the boom we thought. Playing Luka Doncic in an overtime game for over 80 DK points was essential to do anything in GPP.

For those of you new to Picks and Pivots, the goal of this NBA DFS article each and every day is to provide you a “First Look” overview of the slate where we use DraftKings pricing as a baseline to help us get started. Rather than simply write out the “top plays,” this article will focus on slate strategy and roster construction with a GPP mindset to help you get started on your initial builds. Without further ado, let’s dive into today’s slate!
