NBA 2K Players Tournament First Matchups

NBA 2K NBA 2K Players Tournament

Sixteen NBA players will be taking part in an NBA2K charity esports tournament this weekend, competing for not only bragging rights but $100,000 towards the winners charity of choice.

The players are seeded by their rating in the game combined with the length of their NBA career, so the match ups don’t pertain to player skill in playing the game. With a 96 rating, Kevin Durant from the Brooklyn Nets team is top seed.

Without much information to go on historically, I took to the players social channels to get some insights into their gameplay and practice. I’ve picked a few matches that I think will be safe bets, with a couple of close underdogs for upsets. The only markets available from most sportbooks are Match Up Winner, but has added exotics for leads at each game quarter.

My risk pick of this batch is Domantas to lead the half at 2.25 from There’s no solid reason the books have him at such an underdog level, especially as the seedings keep them close. This is worth a punt to come out strong early.

The matches kick off tomorrow and will be streamed on ESPN. The matches will also likely hit Twitch, so I’ll update the tip when I find a stream that has been confirmed.
