NBA DFS: Guards
Jimmy Butler, CHI (vs HOU) Price: $8.8k DK
The Houston Rockets are a better defense than most give them credit for, but they’re still just middle of the pack in terms of Defensive Efficiency. Combine that with the fact that they run the seventh-fastest pace in the NBA, and you have every reason to play an elite guard (and emerging MVP candidate) in a contest that is going to feature plenty of possessions and a whole lot of points.
In his last outing, Jimmy Butler went for 57.8 FPTS (DraftKings) by scoring 28 points while recording seven rebounds, four assists, five steals and two blocks.
Elfrid Payton, ORL (@ CLE) Price: $6.4k DK
We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again.
If you’re not picking at least one Cleveland Cavalier opponent each and every night, you’re missing out.
The Cavaliers continue to be a bottom-three defense with no sign of turning things around. In fact, the more minutes Isaiah Thomas earns in his return from injury, the less likely it becomes they figure things out.
With all that in mind, Elfrid Payton is an easy choice on Thursday night. Just two games ago Payton went for 46.3 FPTS, and while we can’t guarantee a similar performance, there’s a good chance he puts up a strong showing.
NBA DFS: Forwards
Bismack Biyombo, ORL (@CLE) Price: $6.2k DK
Everything we just said about the Cavs applies to this selection, except that Biyombo may be in an even better situation. While the Cavs are just 17th defending guards in DFS, they’re 21st against forwards.
Bismack Biyombo has stepped up in Nikola Vucevic’s absence and has gone for an average of about 48 FPTS per night in his last two. Like Payton, we feel good that he could put up another strong performance against the LeBron James-led squad struggling to take control out East.
Jayson Tatum, BOS (vs PHI) Price: $5.4k DK
Jayson Tatum has been a low-risk player all season. He’s easily a top-three Rookie of the Year favorite, and although the rookie he’ll be going up against in Ben Simmons is the near-consensus leader, Tatum will have a chance to rack up the stats against another young squad in the Philadelphia 76ers.
NBA DFS: Centers
Kevin Love, CLE (vs ORL) Price: $7.4k DK
As much as we (and as easy as it is to) rag on the Cavs’ defense, we can’t ignore the fact that their offense continues to be elite, largely because Kevin Love is thriving in his first real season at the center position.
Against Orlando, as well as Biyombo has played, Love will have the skill set and range to make the Magic’s backup center uncomfortable on that end of the floor. Both of these guys are double-double threats, and Love will be a threat to get you some extra points with long-range shots.
Taj Gibson, MIN, (@ HOU) Price: $5.4k DK
The Rockets are second in DFS is stopping opposing centers, but the beauty in this selection is that Clint Capela (the major reason for that stat) is going to have his hands full with Karl-Anthony Towns. Taj Gibson will have plenty of opportunities to become a low-cost, high-value pick on Thursday night.
- OUT: Nikola Vucevic, ORL, C, $7.4k [UPGRADES: Bismack Biyombo]
- OUT: Myles Turner, IND, C, $6.2k [UPGRADES: Domantas Sabonis]
- OUT: J.J. Redick, PHI, G, $5.3k [UPGRADES: T.J. McConnell]
- SUS: Trevor Ariza/Gerald Green, HOU, G/F [UPGRADES: Eric Gordon, Ryan Anderson]
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.
