It’s time for some mid-week basketball action! NBA DFS Tips:
The big game today is the matchup between the Golden State Warriors and the Oklahoma City Thunder. Not only is it going to be a fascinating game, but it will provide tremendous scoring opportunities for players – so make sure you target this game when building your fantasy teams today.
It’s Wednesday, so that means that the $10,000 Wednesday Swish Special is there for the taking!
Russell Westbrook ($12,400)
We’re loading up the team right away with the highest priced player – Russell Westbrook.
Westbrook finds himself up against the Golden State Warriors today in a game that is expected to be a shootout. Westbrook is nearly always good enough to play in your team, but when you find him in a + matchup like today (a game in which he will be terrifyingly motivated) it’s hard to pass on him.
Eric Bledsoe ($6,600)
If you want a touch of difference today at the point guard slot, look no further than Eric Bledsoe.
After two disappointing games (one due to foul trouble), Bledsoe bounced back in a big way with 40.8 fantasy points against the Nets. He’ll enjoy the matchup against the Knicks today and is a good pivot option if you don’t want to play Westbrook.
Klay Thompson ($6,900)
Klay Thompson is in an excellent spot today.
He’ll be a major offensive weapon against the Thunder team who have been struggling to defend without Andre Roberson in the team.
Thompson has also cruised to 30 or more fantasy points in all of his last three matchups, and today looks even more promising.
Josh Hart ($4,700)
Believe it or not, Josh Hart had a team-high minutes count for the Lakers yesterday.
He’s playing excellent right now in a small forward role and seems to be a showcase piece from the Lakers as the trade deadline approaches.
Hart has scored 37.8 and 34.2 in his last two games and is almost an instant-lock today.
Paul George ($8,600)
Paul George is another player to target in the big game between the Warriors and Thunder.
He’s a little cheaper than Durant and makes for an excellent play considering the high expected points total from both of these two teams.
He managed 61.5 fantasy points just three games ago and is worth a look today.
Mario Hezonja ($5,000)
Mario Hezonja is up against the Cleveland Cavaliers today and that might just result in big points for the Magic guard.
The benefits of playing Hezonja today far surpass just getting excellent value from the SF position. His price enables you to select a few of the ‘big guns’ in the Warriors vs. Thunder game, as well.
Ben Simmons ($8,700)
Simmons’ price has been up and down all season long, but it’s finally starting to settle at a point that makes him a great play.
With consistent fantasy scores around the 37-40 mark, Simmons has been providing good output for the 76ers. Today, he finds himself in a matchup against the Wizards that should see him going larger than normal.
JaMychal Green ($5,100)
JaMychal Green is back and his price is low enough to warrant consideration.
Before he went missing, Green was putting up the occasional score of 40+ fantasy points. Since returning just a few days ago, Green has scored just 17.9 and 24.7 in his two games but looks to be trending upward.
Enes Kanter ($7,200)
Enes Kanter’s got it going right now.
The Knicks center has scored very well recently and has backed up a huge score of 53.5 with two scores of 35+ fantasy points. In his most recent game, he only managed 25 points in 26 minutes of game time, but he is scoring well over a fantasy point per minute over the last month.
