Sunday features a 4 game slate to make your selections from. I will be going heavy on the Mavericks vs Houston Game. Last time they played they put up some video type game numbers and we should see some more of that today. The over/under for that game is the highest of the night at 220 and should provide plenty of fantasy points. Below is a quick look at the Vegas odds, my core players, and my lineup for tonight. If there are any impacting changes to the lineup, I will post them before game time, otherwise I really like my picks below.

 

 

NBA Vegas Odds April 26

Cavaliers(-7) vs Celtics                               o/u 202.5

Clippers vs Spurs(-6)                                   o/u 199.5

Raptors vs Wizards(-5.5)                           o/u 197.5

Rockets(-2.5) vs Maverickss                          o/u 220

 

CorePlayers

Al-Farouq Aminu: Aminu had a pretty good outing last game with 29 fantasy points. Now that Richard Jefferson has been hampered with a quad injury, this will open the door for him to get the minutes he deserves. At only $4,400, he is a great value play and should get 30+ fantasy points tonight.

Monta Ellis: This is another guy benefiting from the injury woes in Dallas. Rondo is out for the rest of the season and last game it put Ellis in position to score 57 fantasy points. He is the clear facilitator now on offense, and will be getting the lions share of touches tonight.

Dwight Howard: As long as he stays out of foul trouble, he should dominate the boards again. Last game he grabbed 25 rebounds and put up 58 fantasy points. He is a real match up issue for the Mavericks, and should be poised to deliver the goods again tonight.

Marcin Gortat: Gortat had a monster game the last time he played the Raptors. He put down a double double and scored 55.75 fantasy points! At only $6,300, he has a ton of upside potential to explode tonight!

 

Good luck in all your contests today! Make sure and check back here right before tip off for any last minute injury updates or roster changes!

Marcus Smart overslept shoot around and will likely be benched for the first quarter.

Today’s playoff action features a 4 game slate with some pretty good match ups. At this point in the season we have seen these teams play one another several times and have a pretty good gauge on what they should produce.

Below, is a look at the Vegas Odds, core players, and my recommended lineup for the night. Anything highlighted in green has some excellent potential. I will update my lineup before game time in case any last minute injury news occurs. So make sure and check back before tip off to see if there are any impacting changes.

 

 

NBA Vegas Odds April 25

Hawks(-5) vs Nets                                          o/u 202

Bulls(-4.5) vs Bucks                                        o/u 188.5

Warriors(-6.5) vs Pelicans                           o/u 206.5

Grizzlies vs Trail Blazers(-3)                       o/u 189

 

CorePlayers

Derrick Rose: It is playoff time and Rose is starting to bloom. He has scored at least 39 fantasy points his last 3 games and went off last game for 59 fantasy points! He is playing extremely well right now, especially for a guy who I didn’t even think would be back on the court this year after his injury. Fire up Rose tonight!

Draymond Green: Green is another guy who is playing at an extremely high level right now. He has scored at least 45 fantasy points his last 3 games and should be ready to deliver the goods again. Green should be motivated to turn up the heat tonight, so he can gets some extra rest before this next round of playoffs.

NBA Vegas Odds April 24

Rockets vs Mavericks(-1)                             o/u 214.5

Raptors vs Wizards(-4)                                 o/u 195.5

Clippers vs Spurs(-4)                                      o/u 204.5

 

Core Players

Monta Ellis: I am a big Mavs fan and I have been very disappointed this season and expect an early exit this postseason. If you saw the last game Rondo looked like garbage and has been declared out for the season. This will lead to a big game for Ellis since he will have to shoulder the load. This is the highest projected scoring game of the night and I expect a huge game out of Monta.

Richard Jefferson: With Chandler Parsons out for the remainder of the season this opens the doors big time for Jefferson. Not only is he starting, but Draftkings just introduced the cheapest options for players ever. Richard Jefferson is only $2,200!! That is ridiculous pricing and I hope this isn’t a system glitch! This is an easy all in play at this price. If he hits 22 fantasy points (very reasonable), he hits 10X value!

Boris Diaw: He has quietly been coming off the bench and been producing on a regular basis. Last game he exploded with 38 fantasy points thanks to an overtime game. At only $4,500, he really frees up some cap space to go after some big time players. This is another high scoring game in which he should get plenty of fantasy points.

Devin Harris: Great value play at only 2k. He has already been confirmed to play and should exceed his value.

The playoffs are in full effect and it is a very exciting time to be a basketball fan! Thursday night’s action on Draftkings features a 3 game slate to pick your lineups from. A quick glance at the Vegas Odds and all the games look to be close scoring. Anything highlighted in green may be worth targeting because of the potential for lots of fantasy points. Below, is a look at the Vegas Lines, my core players, and lineup for the night.

 

 

NBA Vegas Odds April 23

Cavaliers(-3) vs Celtics                           o/u 203.5

Bulls(-2.5) vs Bucks                                 o/u 187

Warriors(-5) vs Pelicans                        o/u 203

 

Core Players

Draymond Green: He has been absolutely feasting on the Pelicans. He has scored at least 45 fantasy points the last couple of games. He will do more of the same again tonight! He did roll his ankle last game, but Coach Kerr says it is fine and everything is good to go. Be on the lookout just in case!

Kyrie Irving: I thought Lebron would take over in the playoffs, but looks like his old age has caught up with him. Kyrie is seeing plenty of shots with no sign of slowing down. With his price on DK he is a must play in my opinion. He has scored at 42 fantasy points the last few games and should be ready to deliver the same type of performance.

Pao Gasol: Fire up the big daddy Pau Gasol! He is consistently pumping out 40 point performances and should only increase that total now that the playoffs are live. I think this will be his breakout game where he hits 60+ fantasy points!

The playoffs are in full form, and we are already seeing some tremendous play! Wednesday night features a 3 game slate to pick your lineups from. Below is a look at the Vegas odds, my core players, and my lineup for the night. The obvious game to target here is the Spurs vs Clippers game. It is the highest projected scoring game of the night, and it is also going to be a very close one. But don’t dismiss the other games too quickly. If you dig deep enough, there will be plenty of value to find.

 

 

NBA Vegas Odds April 22

Nets vs Hawks(-9.5)                            o/u 202

Trail Blazers vs Grizzlies(-6)             o/u 189

Spurs vs Clippers(-1.5)                       o/u 207.5

 

Core Players

Kawhi Leonard: Leonard has played extremely well against the Clippers and should be poised to do so again. At this point in the season, we have seen these teams play each other numerous times and he had produced again and again. Look for him to deliver 50+ fantasy points tonight.

Kyle Korver: At his price, he is a great play at the shooting guard position. Last game out, he produced 41.75 fantasy points and really stepped up his game. I expect him to do more of the same, and light it up from three point range.

Marc Gasol: Fire up the big man. The last time he played this team he went off for 48 fantasy points. The game before that against Indiana he scored 56 fantasy points. He is red hot right now and should be pushing himself 100%, since it is the playoffs.

DraftKings NBA Picks April 20 

Monday night features a tiny slate of 2 games to picks your lineups from. We have already gotten a nice sneak peak at these teams since this is the second game of their respective series. Below is a look at the Vegas Odds for the night, core players for building your lineups around, and my recommended lineup for the night.

 

 

NBA Vegas Odds April 20

Bucks vs Bulls(-7.5)                                           o/u 187.5

Pelicans vs Warriors(-11)                                o/u 201.5

 

Core Players

Quincy Pondexter: The secret is out of the bag with Pondexter. Last time out, he was was only $3000, hit 11x+ value, and only 1.9% owned in the Sharpshooter. This was pretty surprising considered he played well in the past against Golden State. His ownership numbers will exponentially increase tonight, but despite his heavy price increase I still think he will hit value and free up value cap space on this small slate night. He is an all in play.

Andrew Bogut: He is another must play for the night. The Warriors have been holding back and resting their starters all season long. Now that the playoffs are here those restrictions have been removed. Bogut is playing in top form right now and exploded the last game in this series with 12 points, 14 rebounds, and 46 fantasy points! The Warriors just have too many weapons to guard and he is being the beneficiary of some easy drive and dump scores.

Draymond Green: Green absolutely shredded New Orleans last game with 51 fantasy points. That wasn’t a fluke either, the game prior to that he went off for 54 fantasy points as well. He seems to have their number and should be poised to do more of the same. He suffered a minor ankle injury so I will be monitoring his status during shoot around to see how he looks. Coach Kerr has said he is not concerned about the injury and that it is minor.

 Yesterday’s Winning Lineup

 

DraftKings NBA Picks. 

I hope everyone made some money last night. My lineup yesterday was good enough for 264 fantasy points (attached below). I was pretty happy with how it turned out considering Tyreke Evans almost turned in a goose egg before getting injured.

The playoffs are in full effect and Sunday should be a great day for some thrilling NBA action! It is a 4 game slate which provides little room for error. Below is a look at the Vegas lines, my core players, and lineup for Sunday’s match ups. The game which has the highest over under is the Spurs vs Clippers game, but it can be tricky playing the Spurs so you have to be real careful when making your selections. Anything highlighted in green has some excellent potential, and anything in red proceed with caution.

 

 

NBA Vegas Odds April 19

Celtics vs Cavaliers(-11.5)                    o/u 203

Nets vs Hawks(-10)                                o/u 201.5

Trail Blazers vs Grizzlies(-5.5)            o/u 188.5

Spurs vs Clippers(-1.5)                          o/u 207

 

Core Players

Kawhi Leonard: Leonard has played extremely well against the Clippers this year. Look for him to rack up at least 40 fantasy points tonight and continue his dominance. Popovich has held him back during the regular season, but he should unleash the beast now that it is playoffs.

Blake Griffin: Every time Blake has faced off against the Spurs this year he has put up excellent numbers. The Spurs are a great defensive team, but the over under on this game is the highest of the night and Griffin has proven he can handle the task. As long as he stays out of foul trouble he will produce. He has huge upside and a very high floor. (Averages 41.6 fantasy points on the season)

Lebron James: Lebron has destroyed the Celtics this year every time he has played them. He has been pacing himself late in the season so he can be rested and ready to go. Now that the playoffs have started, he will be ready to push the limits and try and finish the Celtics off early so he can be well rested for round 2. Look for him to have a monster game 1! Lebron has scored at least 61 fantasy points in 2 out of his last 4 games with restricted minutes.

DraftKings NBA Picks Playoffs

The playoffs are here and it should be a very exciting post season! Saturday, features a tiny slate of 4 games to pick your lineups from. With this small of a slate, the margin of error is very slim, and in order to take down a big time tournament you need to make all the right picks. Below is a look at the current Vegas Odds, as well as my picks, and core players for the day. Use this information to help shape your own unique lineup for Saturday!

 

 

NBA Vegas Odds April 18

Mavericks vs Rockets(-5)                    o/u 211

Wizards vs Raptors(-4)                       o/u 193.5

Pelicans vs Warriors(-12)                  o/u 204.5

Bucks vs Bulls(-7.5)                              o/u 185

 

Core Players

Trevor Ariza: Ariza has played extremely well against the Mavericks this year. The last time he played them he scored 41 fantasy points, and the game before that he scored 16 points, 5 rebounds, and 3 assists. With the Mavericks banged up and out of rhythm, look for Trevor to have a big game. Trust me I should know, I’m a mavs fan :(. We have been a .500 team since the all-star break., and  I don’t see us making it out of the first round.

Paul Pierce: Pierce is a great value play at only $4,500. He has performed very well against the Raptors this season. He scored 17 points against them the last couple of games and will almost certainly exceed value today. Utilize him to free up a little extra cap space and go for some stud players.

Draymond Green: The last time Green played against the Hornets, he scored 54 fantasy points. He has consistently dominated them throughout the season, and with the drop in his price, he is a must play for today. Look for him to continue his tremendous play and rack up the fantasy points.
