We have a nice 5 main slate today starting at 7pm. Sunday is a good day to play NBA as most will be focused on NFL. The ATL/LAL game has the highest total at 241 and the next game is even close at right around 20 points less (220.5 MIL/DEN game). The ATL/LAL game has a 20 point spread and the Hawks have been not been playing well, so we can look at some of the bench players/young players for some value. Jeremy Lin & Omari Spellman have been playing well as of late and are both under 5k(both nice GPP plays). This game also will be running at the fastest pace at around around 113 with the next game at 10 possessions less.
DvP chart for today’s games. Utilize this to help you make some of your own choices. CHA/DET game is not on the main slate.
Irving has steeped up as of late scoring 28 or more real points in 4 of the last 5 games. Like his matchup vs Dame tonight.
Lakers are in a good spot vs the Hawks who rank last in FPs against.
Lin is running a 23% usage rate off the bench and has been playing well, especially over the past 6 games posting 26 or more FPS in 4 of those 6. Nice GPP play in this fast paced high scoring game.
Anthony & Green are out, so Clark and Gordon should get more run.
Plays a ton of minutes and has a solid matchup. GPP play.
James Harden (DK)
Harden is under 10k (9.4K) and under priced, so I will take advantage of this price decrease as he just put up 50 FPs on the Pacers earlier this year in Indiana. 35 plus minutes of Harder at under 10k. Yes please.
Celtics have struggled vs shooting guards. McCollum and or Lillard should have a big game. McCollum is cheap on DK.
GPP play- He has been in a bit of a slump as of late shooting 11-50 from the field over the past 3 games. Two of those games were against the Grizzlies, and Nets who have done well limiting SGs. Tonight, he goes against the Bucks who rank 29th vs opposing SGs and gets a pace up game. Price is down under 6k on DK, which is a good value for Harris who is playing well over 30 minutes a game and possesses 40 FP upside.
Hart will be a good GPP play if Ingram sits out. GPP either way vs he Hawks.
Playing vs his former team and wings have been doing well vs the Celtics this year. They are ranked 24th vs opposing SGs and Booker, Warren and Ingles just went off vs them over the last 2 games.
Back from injury and played 24 minutes. High usage and nice GPP play.
GPP play in good spot. Fast paced game with high total.
Playing well and gets a nice matchup.
Jarrell Martin– Aaron Gordon is out, so Martin is starting. Him and Mo Bomba become nice plays.
Cheap on DK. Double/double machine.
I like playing Cs vs Vuc.
Nice matchup GPP due to Minutes.
*Celtics will have trouble guarding Nurkic
if you want to take a Chance in a GPP he could crush if he gets 30 minutes.
