Hey Guys, I’m back again offering some of my favorite FanDuel NBA picks for today’s 2 game main slate. The games tonight feature the Boston Celtics traveling to Washington to take on the Wizards. Vegas has given this game a total of 219 and have the Wizards favored by 5 points at home. The second game of the slate features the Utah Jazz taking on the Golden State Warriors who are home and are once again coming in as a heavy favorite. The Warriors are favored by 13.5 points with the total set at 205.
The Jonathan Simmons pick paid off last night, as he put up just under 10X his salary last night against the Rockets. Hopefully we’ll find another value play that can pay off their salary to that magnitude again tonight.
Lets get into tonight’s FanDuel NBA picks!
Follow me on Twitter for additional analysis and updates through out the day!
PG – John Wall – $10900 – Now that Russel Westbrook is out of the playoffs and Harden is guarded by Leonard every night, Wall has become the new must have player in your line ups. If you didn’t play DFS on Tuesday, I’m sure you still heard about the 53 real points Isaiah Thomas dropped on the Wizards. I bet most of you wouldn’t know John Wall still outscored Thomas in terms of FanDuel points. Wall has legit ability to score 60+ Fantasy points on any given night, considering the efficiency hes been playing with as of late. Wall is doing it all on both ends of the floor, and now get a home game where he’s averaged more FD points per game and is in a great match up. Lets not forget that Isaiah Thomas was ranked as the worst defender in the NBA not just at his position but in the entire NBA.
C – Marcin Gortat – $6200 – The Center position on FanDuel the past few weeks has been awful. Between the Raptors, Spurs, Celtics, Bulls, Rockets, etc most of these teams don’t use a traditional center. The Wizards how ever do play with a traditional center in Gortat and he receives 30+ minutes a game, with double double upside. The Celtics are one of the worst rebounding teams in the NBA allowing Gortat to grab 13 and 10 rebounds in the first 2 games. Gortats scoring is up and down, but if he can have the safe floor with grabbing double digit rebounds and playing 30+ minutes a night. Ill take the savings on Gortat over Gobert and Horford.
PG – Shaun Livingston – $2100 – The chalk value point guard of the night will be the scrappy Terry Rozier who scored 27 Fanduel points in his last outing. I imagine Livingston’s 20 Fanduel point game will go overlooked which is perfect for GPP’s tonight. The back up PG for the Warriors has been battling an injury since the start of playoffs and finally played his normal role off the bench last game. If you’re looking to play a cheap PG, I suggest playing Livingston over Rozier in tournaments, due to ownership and price.
Good luck tonight on your FanDuel NBA Picks!
