Top NBA Plays for Tuesday Night FanDuel Contests
FanDuel Salary – $6,800
Kyrie has been solid against the Rockets throughout his career (27, 4, 4, 2) and has been even better when playing without Lebron this season (30,3,4,1). We will have some exposure to both Kyrie and Love, who should see some added minutes and usage without James on the floor. That being said, Kyrie is the guy that has the ball in his hands every play, so we expect him to be the biggest beneficiary from the added usage tonight.
FanDuel Salary – $5,700
Elfrid has been a beast since returning from injury and getting his minutes back… Oladipo looks like he will be back tonight, but the Nets are such a plus-matchup for point guards, I think you still have to look at Payton as a value lock tonight. Donald Sloan and Shane Larkin have just been horrendous defensively, and Payton is a triple-double threat PG in matchups like this one.
FanDuel Salary – $7,400
You have to look at opposing perimeter players against the Wizards, and Klay’s on a huge scoring streak. He’s going to get the Wall matchup, which makes this a risky pick, but offensively Klay is red hot and is averaging over 37 PPG in the current homestand.
FanDuel Salary – $7,800
We expect to surpass 6x value in other spots on the floor, so we are rolling out a safe pick in Nic Batum. We could have went with Paul George’s or KD’s upside, but Batum is steady and in this matchup seems to be a safe bet to match an average performance from either of those players at a $2,000 discount. Batum’s scoring has been way up over the past month, but the defensive productivity hasn’t been what it typically has been for him, or I’d expect him to be priced at least $1,000 higher. Look for him to find turnovers and plenty of rebounds against a young, poor shooting 76ers team.
FanDuel Salary – $5,700
Turner got into early foul trouble and never got going against the Kings in his last game out… it happens. This matchup is just as solid, the Bulls are amongst the NBA’s worst at defending the PF and C positions, and have been particularly bad as of late. They are giving up 48 PPG over their last 10 games to both positions, and have seemingly no interest in making the postseason. Look for Turner to hold his own against Gibson, but to work over Mirotic and Portis and get back on track tonight.
FanDuel Salary – $4,700
Landry is virtually the only scoring option the 76ers currently have in their frontcourt. He’s not going to get you a double-double, but has proven to be a point-per-minute player over the past month. With Noel questionable and Okafor done, expect 25 minutes and 25 FanDuel points out of the vet again tonight.
FanDuel Salary – $8,100
Lopez could be in line for an absolute monster game tonight. The Magic are getting slaughtered by opposing centers, allowing nearly 60 PPG over their last 10 and Lopez always seems to show up against Orlando. He’s clearly the focal point of this offense, and has passed the ball exceptionally well as of late with 15 assists in 3 games last week. A 25/12/5/2 game isn’t at all a stretch in this matchup.
