We started off with a Prize Picks Futures articles, and now we’re switching platforms over to DraftKings, and comparing the twos numbers. Firstly, I wanted to see how the numbers are different, and which platform is the superior?

Thank you for reading this post, don't forget to subscribe!

Difference in Numbers

There isn’t a big difference in umbers, comparatively. For example, Kevin Durant has the same Points Per Game line set at 26.7 on both DraftKings and Prize Picks. However, Devin Booker has a line set on DraftKings at 27.0, compared to 27.1 on Prize Picks. So basically, there isn’t necessarily a difference at all. The biggest difference would be Bradley Beal with a PPG line set at 21.2 on DraftKings and 20.8 on Prize Picks. Numbers wise, they float around the same numbers, but why are their some players with a wider range?

Devin Booker Futures

Devin Booker in my eyes is the most valuable asset the Suns have. He can score at will, and with the players he is surrounded by, will be able to distribute the rock well. I think Booker will lead the Suns in both major statistical category’s, points and assist. Booker looks like he will be the focal point of this offense. Give me his over on 27.0 points for the season, and his over on 6.6 assists for the year. The Suns young star also has a +5000 line for NBA scoring leader, and +1800 for MVP. I’m not sure if I’m super confident to take one of those, maybe a small bet for a big payout.

Kevin Durant Futures

Kevin Durant had a points per game line set at 26.7, I think he will be just shy of that mark. Durant is great no doubt, but he’s the type of guy you’re denying Book to pass the ball to. The veteran forward is great at every part of offensive play. Catch and shoot, taking guys off the dribble, he can do it all. However, he is someone teams say “we won’t let him beat us” just due to his presence. Durant also has a +5000 NBA scoring leader line, and a +1400 MVP line. It is cool that two Suns players were featured in nig awards odds like that, however I won’t be taking them.

Bradley Beal Futures

Bradley Beal was the one guy I would have loved to see more bets for. He is in a position he hasn’t been in yet in his career. I think Beal will go over his 21.2 PPG line he currently has set. Your best two defenders go on KD and Booker, that leaves Beal with an average defender, he will expose those.
