NBA DFS: Guards
Victor Oladipo, IND (@ LAL) Price: $9.6k DK, $9.3 FD
Whether or not Lonzo Ball plays in this one, Victor Oladipo is going to be a strong selection on Friday. But there are a couple factors you need to consider.
If Lonzo does play, the defense at the point guard position is going to be better. That’s less than ideal. But in return, you’re going to get a team that plays at a top-three pace and creates more possessions with him in the lineup.
If Lonzo doesn’t play, there will be fewer possessions to go around, but the Lakers’ already troubling defense will struggle further.
That’s a win-win if I’ve ever heard of one.
Vince Carter, SAC (@ MEM) Price: $3.5k DK, $4.1k FD
If you can afford some extreme exposure to your backcourt, Devin Booker is the pick here. He’s going to cost you $8.5k DK, but against Denver, he has the potential to go off for one of his bigger nights of the season.
If you’re like us, however, you have your eyes on another high-priced piece from that Phoenix-Denver contest. (Stay tuned.) That makes Vince Carter an excellent value pick here. At $3.5k, he’s a bit of a risk for a low floor, but against his old team in his old arena, he has motivation to show out, which will allow you to save some virtual dough for future selections.
NBA DFS: Forwards
Will Barton, DEN (vs PHO) Price: $6.5k DK
Will Barton has averaged nearly 39.5 FPTS in his last two and should go for big numbers yet again against a Phoenix squad that not only plays no defense, but creates more possessions than just about any team in the Association.
This game is going to have one of the higher over/unders of the night, and Barton, who has been making a name for himself all over the box score as of late, is a strong pick.
Davis Bertans, SAS (@ TOR) Price: $3.8k DK, $3.5 FD
Davis Bertans has quietly become one of the biggest “no-name” surprises of the 2017-18 season. And yet, that should surprise absolutely nobody considering the Spurs do this year after year with guys no casual fan has ever heard of.
For the record, Bertans should be a “break in case of emergency” selection ahead of Friday’s seven-game slate. This isn’t a go-to gem based on injuries. If you find yourself low on spending money, however, you’d be tough to find a better rotational piece to squeeze into your budget.
NBA DFS: Centers
Nikola Jokic, DEN (vs PHO) Price: $9.5k DK, $10k FD
What…you thought that DEN-PHO high-priced tease from earlier was for Will Barton?
Nikola Jokic is easy money here, even at his current price. Remember when we recommended him two nights ago vs. Dallas because he was “going to be a threat to go off for 50 FPTS against a mediocre Dallas defense”? Or how about when we said, “This is a game where he can dominate the box score and impact the game in multiple categories”?
That night he went off for 29 points, 18 rebounds, seven assists, one block and two steals en route to 67 FPTS. We’re getting the same vibes in this one.
- OUT: Kawhi Leonard, SAS, F, $8.2k [UPGRADES: Davis Bertans, Danny Green]
- QST: Marc Gasol, MEM, C, $8.0k [UPGRADES: Zach Randolph (SAC)]
- QST: Lonzo Ball/Kyle Kuzma/Brandon Ingram, LAL, G/F, [UPGRADES: Jordan Clarkson, Julius Randle]
One last thing. Remember… at the end of the day if you can’t afford to gamble online OR play at Draft Kings and Fan Duel then STOP. We know most DFS players need action, heck we do too, so just bet what you can afford.
Don’t go chasing money in high dollar GPP’s. Stick to cash games, and try to play on bigger slates. Avoid those night time 2 games slates. Your bankroll will thank us later.
