Top FanDuel NBA Plays for Monday March 21st
Vegas Team Totals for March 21st
FanDuel Salary – $3,700
We wrote a week ago that McCallum would eventually win the Memphis point guard job, and that he would consistently contribute across the board as a point-per-minute FanDuel player. He played second fiddle to Zach Randolph in his first start, but flashed his ability to contribute in all five categories. Look for him to run the show tonight against a Phoenix team that is allowing 50 FanDuel PPG to opposing point guards over their last 10 games. Not only is McCallum a lock to hit value, but I think he needs to be owned in every lineup tonight.
FanDuel Salary – $6,800
Golden State gives up 108 PPG on the road, and Rubio will clearly be guarded by Curry for the majority of the night. While he hasn’t faced the Warriors this season, Rubio had a 47 point game against the Thunder earlier this month, and he put up 50 FanDuel points the last time he did face the Warriors. Clearly this guy knows basketball, he had a perfect bracket after day on of the NCAA tourney…

FanDuel Salary – $4,700
This is the one time in the last 5 years that we are locking in the Grizzlies starting backcourt. In fact, in the 150+ NBA lineup articles we have written over the past four seasons, this is only the second time Tony Allen has made an appearance. That being said, he’s playing 32 mpg, is actually involved in the offense, and has hit value in 4 of 8 games since returning from injury. He’s also facing the 30th ranked DVP for shooting guards, and a team that he put up 32 on earlier this season.
FanDuel Salary – $10,200
Giannis and Boogie clearly have the highest ceilings tonight. We ended up paying up for Ante because his points-above-replacement at the SF position are much higher than what we expect the difference between Cousins and Drummond to be. The amazing part of the current run Giannis is on is that his usage rate isn’t off the charts, it’s up 4 points from his season average of 22. Even though he’s shifted to PG, he is averaging 20/9/8 over his last 10 without having to have the ball in his hands a ton… meaning the numbers should remain consistent despite who is around him or who he plays. The Pistons have been poor defensively as of late, and it seems like Giannis’ length and athleticism will be a particularly tough matchup for either Morris, Harris, or Johnson.
FanDuel Salary – $8,100
Draymond is generally a value lock against the Timberwolves. He’s a bit overvalued right now, but Green had a 60 point performance against Minnesota in November. The Wolves continue to be a favorable PF matchup, allowing the 28th most points to the position over their last 10 games at 48 per.
FanDuel Salary – $5,400
Given minutes, Taj Gibson has been a value lock his entire career. Given the fact that Gasol and Noah are both currently out, Gibson should see 30 MPG until Gasol returns. Look for his price to climb to the $6,800 range over that stretch, meaning he’s a great value at his current price, especially so in matchups like tonights against the Kings.
FanDuel Salary – $7,700
The easiest daily NBA plays this season have come from targeting athletic centers against Greg Monroe and Al Horford. Both teams are solid defensively yet have consistently been in the bottom 5 in Center DVP. The proof is in Drummond’s game log against the Bucks this season… He’s average 53 FanDuel PPG in their last two meetings.
