The Washington Wizards entered the 2021 NBA Playoffs boasting the third-best scoring offense in the league, dropping 116.6 points per game on opponents. But that offense has run dry through three games of their first-round playoff series against the Sixers, as Washington is mustering just 105.3 points per game and is on the verge of elimination. Guard Bradley Beal was second in the NBA in scoring (31.3 ppg) and was one of the best NBA DFS picks night after night, and is still popping for 30.3 points per night against Philadelphia.
Is Beal primed for another strong night in what could be a decisive Game 4 on Monday, thus being worth the $9,100 on DraftKings and $9,600 on FanDuel as part of your NBA DFS lineups? With thousands on the line in daily Fantasy basketball tournaments, 50-50s and cash games, getting it right can be quite lucrative. Before locking in any daily Fantasy basketball lineups for Monday’s NBA DFS action, be sure to see the core lineup selections, player pool and NBA DFS strategy from Mike McClure, a DFS pro who has won almost $2 million.

Top NBA DFS picks for Monday, May 31
One of McClure’s top NBA DFS picks for Monday is Grizzlies forward Jaren Jackson Jr. at $5,400 on DraftKings and $5,700 on FanDuel. Jackson delivered 14.4 points and 5.6 rebounds per game during the regular season. He went for nine points, nine rebounds, three assists, a block and a steal Saturday against the Jazz.
Jackson’s effort Saturday was good for over 28 NBA DFS points on DraftKings and over 29 on FanDuel, and came in just 27 minutes of action. It was his second straight game over 20 NBA DFS points on DraftKings, and third in a row on FanDuel. McClure is banking on Jackson posting another productive effort Monday against Utah, and likes him in all NBA DFS formats.
Part of McClure’s NBA DFS strategy for Monday includes stacking Jackson with guard Ja Morant at $8,400 on DraftKings and $8,200 on FanDuel. Morant backed up his NBA Rookie of the Year campaign by averaging 19.1 points, 4.0 rebounds and 7.4 assists per game during the regular season. Morant went for 28 points, three rebounds and seven assists Saturday against the Jazz.
Morant was a beast against Utah in the regular season, scoring 26.7 points, grabbing 2.3 rebounds and dishing 7.3 assists in three games. But he has been even more magical in this first-round series, going off for 33.7 points, 3.7 rebounds and 6.0 assists per game. That output has delivered 47.2 NBA DFS points per outing on DraftKings and 45.1 NBA DFS points per outing on FanDuel, making this one of the top NBA DFS stacks for Monday’s playoff action.
