Okay, I have about 30 minutes to finish this article, so it’ll be quick. First off, I hate this slate and I had a hard time building a lineup I liked, in fact, I hate the lineup I’m about to give you, but it’s where my research kept taking me, so here we go…
Jamal Murray $12,000 @ SAC
I keep riding the Jamal Murray train, but he is once again in a good spot here. If you watch the games, he is always looking to shoot, especially in the fourth quarter. He plays off the bench but still manages to average 30-plus minutes a night.
Darren Collinson $11,000 @ IND
I went back and forth with him and Avery Bradley. Both are very risky plays in good spots. Collison has picked up his game with Victor Oladipo out, and if for some Dipo is back for this game pivot to Bradley.
Bradley has a good matchup against Eric Gordon of the Rockets tonight, and Bradley is capable of putting up 35-plus Fanduel points, especially in a pace up game for him.
Others to consider: Elfrid Payton $13,000, Avery Bradley $10,500, Eric Bledsoe $12,500
Jimmy Butler $14,000 vs NOP
This game has the second highest over/under on the slate and I wanted to make sure I had some exposure. I couldn’t afford Anthony Davis, Karl-Anthony Towns or DeMarcus Cousins, so Butler was the next best thing. Despite his down game last night, Butler has been on a tear and he will resume that hot streak tonight against a Pelicans team that struggles to defend small forwards.
Gerald Green $10,500 @ DET
He has been a great source of value over the last few days scoring 35-plus FanDuel points in two straight. He will continue to be a good value as long as he stays under $11,000 and James Harden continues to be out.
Others to consider: Aaron Gordon $13,000, Zach Randolph $10,000, Anthony Davis $15,000
Kevin Love $12,500 @ ORL
As long as Love suits up with this game he has an elite matchup with the worst defense over the last four weeks defending the center position. The game has the highest over/under on the slate but I couldn’t find a way to get LeBron James in without giving up too much. Love could easily go for 45-plus tonight.
Others to consider: Bed, Bath and Biyombo $11,500, Karl-Anthony Towns $13,000
