The Milwaukee Bucks lost Game 1 of their first playoff game in the bubble to the Orlando Magic but could go up 3-1 with a victory on Monday. Tip off is set for 1:30 p.m. ET. The last game ended in a blowout win for the Bucks. Will the Magic put up a fight this time around? We’ll go over the ideal DFS strategy for Showdown contests on DraftKings below.

Captain’s Picks

Giannis Antetokounmpo ($18,000) was worth captaining in his last game because of Nikola Vucevic’s ($15,600) poor shooting. It wasn’t realistic to think that Orlando’s big man could surpass 50 DKFP in every game of this series, but Antetokounmpo has been consistent. If you think Vucevic can bounce back and at least 30 points in a double-double performance, captain him. If not, Antetokounmpo is the best option.

FLEX Options

Eric Bledsoe’s ($8,400) price has taken a leap from $7,400, but it’s warranted. He’s right at his regular season average with 31.25 DKFP per game in this series. Donte DiVincenzo and George Hill have become afterthoughts since Bledsoe assumed his normal workload.

James Ennis ($5,800) was ejected in the first quarter of Game 3 because of an altercation involving Marvin Williams, but he’s been Orlando’s best energy player. He was averaging 28 DKFP per game before his ejection and should be back in the starting lieneup and ready to compete in Game 4.
