FanDuel NBA Picks and Bargains for Wednesday, February 24

FanDuel Price – $6,700
Given the fact that the Lakers have been horrendous defending the point guard position for the past few seasons, it shouldn’t be a surprise that Conley has been solid against them over that stretch. With no Gasol, Jeff Green and Courtney Lee shipped out, and Zebo a shell of his former self, the Grizzlies are suddenly a one man show on offense. Over the last five games Conley has seen his usage rate jump to 25.88, which hardly seems like a huge number, but it is nearly 15% higher than his season average. Look for him to translate that added usage into production in this plus matchup tonight.
FanDuel Price – $5,400
KCP is a value lock in games like tonight’s vs the 76ers… He’s going to play 35+ minutes and always gets his shots. With no Stanley Johnson or Anthony Tolliver, Morris and Harris will likely have to absorb the majority of minutes at the 3 and 4, leaving KCP to play 40 tonight against a team with a pace over 100 and defensive efficiency rating over 105.
FanDuel Price – $4,900
We are seeing a lot of talk about fading Crawford, Paul, and DeAndre Jordan in anticipation of another Clippers blowout. The Nuggets are on the road, on the second night of a back-to-back, and are 4-6 in their last 10. That being said, we think this is close enough for Crawford to get his usual 35 minutes and get back to the guy that was averaging 6x value in his previous 8 games.
FanDuel Price – $5,700
So much for easing Tobias into the Pistons rotation. The Anthony Tolliver injury is going to force Stan to play Harris 35+ minutes for the next month. Harris has averaged just under 1 FanDuel PPM as a Piston, but the biggest takeaway from his strong start has been his activity level on defense with 3 blocks+steals in each of the last two games. He is lightyears ahead of Tolliver and Morris offensively so the scoring will be there most nights, if he can contribute on the glass and defensively we could see Harris become a 30 FanDuel points per night guy.
FanDuel Price – $7,200
We would start just about anyone against the Kings frontcourt, but when it’s an underpriced superstar like LA, it’s a lock. Aldridge didn’t shoot the ball particularly well last week, but yet has still reached value in 8 of his last 9 games. He’s our lock of the night tonight.
FanDuel Price – $9,200
We were all over Towns in this matchup last week and he went of for 55.7 points. The key to this being a plus matchup, despite what the DvP may say for Toronto is the makeup of the two teams. Toronto has perimeter defenders capable of slowing down Lavine, Wiggins, Rubio, and co and you can’t throw the ball to Dieng on the block… leaving one real option for halfcourt offense. Towns is the perfect combination of skill and athleticism to give Patterson, Valanciunas and Biyombo fits. Look for another 50+ point performance out of this season’s rookie of the year.
Also consider: Vince Carter, Steph Curry, Ian Mahinmi, Andre Drummond…
