There’s $17,000 worth of prizes up for grabs in today’s 10-game slate. With tip-off at 11:10 am, who should you be targeting today? NBA DFS Tips:
Dennis Schroeder $7,400
Dennis Schroeder has been in very good form of late, averaging 39 fantasy points per game over the last 5. Pair that good form with a strong matchup against the New Orleans Pelicans, and hopefully we see another 50+ fantasy point performance from Dennis today. He had 54.1 fantasy points two games ago against the league’s worst point guard defense, so what can he do today against the league’s second-worst point guard defense?
Kris Dunn $7,600
Kris Dunn’s last 4 games jump out at you. He had 24.4 in his last game, but before that, he had 55.6, 39.4 and 46.8. You don’t often see that type of upside from a player at 7.6K, but it’s exactly that upside you need to make your mark on the Thursday monster. Westbrook is a great option today, but at $12K it’s unlikely to hit 5 or 6 X value on the cash. Dunn has the potential to hit you with 7 X value.
Justin Holiday $4,900
Justin Holiday was the hot topic of the early fantasy season but has slowly died off since. However, he’s had a resurgence of late, averaging 27.8 over the last 4 games. His high of 37.8 in his last game gives you an insight into the upside he provides in today’s Thursday Monster.
DeMarre Carroll $4,600
DeMarre Carroll has been on a great run recently, averaging 35 fantasy points per game over the last 3. The matchup gets a little harder today against the Spurs, but the fact he’s still under $5K makes him a great look for a value play in both cash and tournament games.
Paul George $7,500
The Lakers are the league’s worst small forward defense, which bodes well for Paul George. He had a solid 36.9 against them last time and is coming off a 43.8. His consistency of play is tough to bet on, but his upside for the Thursday monster is high. He’s a great tournament play, but maybe not cash.
Derrick Favors $6,000
Derrick Favors makes another appearance here because he’s always solid value. He rarely falls below 25 and he’s consistently closer to 30. As long as he stays at his current price, he’s an excellent cash value play.
Jordan Bell $4,300
No Draymond Green means more Jordan Bell. He hasn’t been active recently, but he will start today and hopefully play big minutes. At the height of his powers he has scored 43.2 and 41.5 ( against Chicago as well), so with starting time today, hopefully, we see another performance like that. It’s not the safest cash play, but at his current price, it’s a risk you should take for the Thursday Monster.
Steven Adams $6,000
Steven Adams is rock solid. He’s scored 46.7 and 34.1 in the last 2 games and is coming up against a good matchup against the Lakers, who have the 6th worst centre defense. Adams had 34.2 against them last time and seems likely to repeat a similar effort again today.
