Devin Booker, PHO (@ OKC), $8.9 DK, $8.2k FD
Devin Booker is going to take full advantage of an Oklahoma City Defense that’s struggled to stay afloat since Andre Roberson was lost for the season.
Assuming the Thunder try to mix it up a bit and put the likes of both Paul George and Russell Westbrook on him occasionally, you probably shouldn’t expect another 70-point showing from him (which we’re coming up on the anniversary of, so it’s becoming a talking point once again). But “mixing it up” won’t be enough to stop—or likely even contain—a score-first guard against a terrible defense.
Russell Westbrook (vs PHO) $11.8k DK, $12.k FD
Speaking of terrible defenses, Russell Westbrook and his Thunder are facing off against Booker’s Phoenix Suns, a squad that’s sitting at just 29th out of 30 teams when defending guards in DFS.
If you’re going to commit to both of these guards, you must be willing to highly expose your backcourt and eye multiple low-cost, high-value picks in the frontcourt.
If that’s going to be your strategy, keep on reading. We’ve got a few forwards in mind who fit the bill.
Jeremy Lamb, CHA (vs BKN), $4.5k DK, $4.7k FD
Jeremy Lamb has the luxury of going up against a team that is both obsessed with pace and refuses to play defense. That means the Charlotte Hornets are going to find contributors across the board at higher levels than they’re used to, and in this case, Lamb has a chance to go off.
Davis Bertans, SAS (@ GSW), $4.6k DK, $4.4k FD
Drafting a Golden State Warriors opponent is always a risk. The Warriors, despite being known as one of the greatest offensive collection of players in NBA history, may also someday go down as one of the most underrated defensive squads.
That said, the Spurs know how to get production out of their “no names” against top-tier competition.
Entering Thursday, Bertans is coming off a 17-point, four-rebound, three-assist performance that saw him net 29 FPTS.
With momentum on his side, Bertans could quietly be one of the better value picks of the five-game slate.
LaMarcus Aldridge, SAS (@ GSW) $7.7k DK, $8.2k FD
If you didn’t overexpose your guards, LaMarcus Aldridge has a chance to surprise you against the Golden State defense. Considering the opponent, it makes sense that he’d be behind Joel Embiid, Karl-Anthony Towns and Dwight Howard in terms of cost on Thursday. But you have to understand that the Spurs forward/center has looked like an All-NBA candidate so far this season.
On Thursday night, Aldridge is looking for a bounce-back performance after two poor showings.
- OUT: Jimmy Butler, MIN, G/F [UPGRADES: Andrew Wiggins, Karl-Anthony Towns]
- OUT: Kawhi Leonard/Pau Gasol, SAS, F/C [UPGRADES: Kyle Anderson, LaMarcus Aldridge]
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.
