Wednesday’s NBA Sleeper Picks Player Predictions: Luka Doncic, Jrue Holiday, Derrick White (6/12)

Welcome to Sleeper Picks. Sleeper’s newest offering promised plenty of entertainment and action, and they delivered. We will break down our top three picks for tonight’s NBA action. Sleeper is quickly becoming one of the most popular season-long fantasy platforms, and they are expanding into other areas based on demand. Each week in this space, we’ll talk about some strategy for the new platform while providing our favorite NBA more/less picks.

NBA Sleeper Picks Player Predictions (6/12)

Luka Doncic (G/F – DAL): 24.5 points (alt line)

Luka remains the engine of the Mavericks offense and is going to get his volume regardless of gamescript. Luka has scored 30 points or more in both games of this series, taking at least 21 shots and five trips to the line in each. There is no value on either side at 32.5, so reduce the number to a comfortable 24.5 and dap the More on Doncic for Game 3.

Pick: More

Jrue Holiday (G – BOS): 9.5 points (alt line)

Jrue for Finals MVP? That conversation is gaining steam after his throwback performance in Game 2, coupled with his game-altering defense. Jaylen Brown is the current favorite by most who actually watch the games, but Jrue is a close second despite the presence of Jayson Tatum, who had some big plays but offered another inefficient volume night for the Celtics. Jrue scored 12 in Game 1 and 26 in Game 2. With this being a road game, expect the veteran leader to take it upon himself to ensure the Celtics take one on the Mavericks home floor. Double figures is almost a given, and we should expect something in the 14-18 point range, with Jrue expected to maintain some aggressiveness. Jab the More on Jrue for Game 3.

Pick: More

Derrick White (G – BOS): 9.5 points (alt line)

White has faded back into being the fifth option for the Celtics in this series but is still a high-probability play at the reduced alt line number of 9.5. He has scored 15 or more in both games and has dropped at least 13 in seven straight playoff games. He fell under 10 just once all postseason, so this is a play to consider adding to your ticket despite the low multiplier. Dap the More Derrick for Game 3.

Pick: More

Writers note: The lines are constantly changing on Sleeper (and sometimes expiring), so there is a high probability that one or all of the numbers may no longer be the same when you open your app. There are excellent values when they are first posted, with the only catch being that they are not all released at the same time. Vigilance could provide a solid return on investment this season, literally.
