Last night was a successful night from playing standards and we had some nice hits out of the 6 plays that we recommended last night. We considered Collison a play due to Ibaka being out while Liggins wasn’t counted due to him not getting the start. As we tweeted earlier this morning, Nelson, Westbrook, and Tristan Thompson were huge hits putting up 147 between them. Evans, Thomas, and Collison on the other hand didn’t fare that well. Evans and Thomas missed value, but could have been much worse. Needless to say, it’s probably smart to stay away from Kings players for the rest of our lives.
The Money is Out West
This headline has a little bit of a double meaning tonight. The two highest over/unders on the night come out west where Portland faces off against Denver, and Milwaukee faces off against the Lakers. This is where the money will be made as the totals are big. From those two games we have four players on our Draftkings roster.
The other reason why the money is out west is due to our love for David West tonight. Priced at $6,700, West is facing off against the Bobcats on the road. This Bobcats team has no real down low threat to stopping the Iowa State product. In his last four games his point totals are as follows: 40, 48.5, 19.75, and 34.75. There are many more reasons to expect a 40 point night than a repeat of the 19 point night.
The obvious great play from the Lakers game is Earl Clark. Pau Gasol is going to be out tonight due to his concussion, and Clark has dominated big time since he replaced him. He is priced at $3,000 and has put up 125 fantasy points in his last three games.
Not Your Average BJ
Brandon Jennings is playing lights out as of late and if there are going to be big time points put up in the Bucks/Lakers game then a big portion of that will have to come from Jennings. He has put up 30 fantasy points or more in eight of his last ten games, and has put up over 40 fantasy points in six of those games. Jennings also averages 3 fantasy points more on the road than he does at home.
LA in Denver
LaMarcus Aldridge has been one of the best big men in the last few weeks putting up monster numbers. In his last six games, he is averaging a double double going for 19 points and 10 rebounds while dishing out 3 assists. That stat line is good for 42.5 fantasy points a game on Draftkings. There is some fear that he’ll have to go up against the Manimal, Faried, but we aren’t scared either way.
A Little Help from a Spot Starter
There is a good chance that Chris Paul will be out tonight, and if that is the case Eric Bledsoe could be a very nice play. He is priced at $4,400 on Draftkings, and is facing the dreadful Rockets defense. He will be on a back to back, but the 28 minutes he played last night shouldn’t kill him. In those minutes, he put up 29.75 fantasy points.
A Look Ahead to Wednesday
Wednesday night looks to be a great fantasy night with ten games to choose from. From a glance, the Houston versus Dallas game looks to be very nice as the Rockets are among the worst against shooting guards and power forwards. Hello Dirk and OJ!
From a game perspective, the Heat at the Warriors should make for a thrilling game and will be showcased on ESPN.
