We are still waiting on Stephen Curry news but besides that we aren’t waiting on much news here which is a nice change for once!
In terms of chalk — Jacob Gilyard should see around 25 minutes tonight with no Smart and others banged up in Memphis. This shoud make him pretty popular at a 4.8k price tag on DraftKings. I think if you wanted to stack him with Desmond Bane that could probably work out together. Dyson Daniels is also a solid play tonight filling in for still injured McCollum.
For tournaments, I really want to fit in Kyrie Irving OR Luka Doncic. Should be a fast paced game with an implied total of 247. I want exposure here as they both re cnaidates to break a slate.
For what it’s worth, Lamelo Ball is always worth a roster spot as he comes with so much upside on a nightly basis. The matchup might scare some away but I think we could see a massive game from him!
Draymond Green is still out so Jonathan Kuminga should see an uptick of playing time along with others. Giannis Antetokounmpo is probable and Zion Williamson is taking the night off for rest… Naji Marshall/Jeremiah Robinson-Earl will see more court time with Zion’s absence.
If you’re looking for some low owned gems I would look into Victor Wembanya. I love the pace of the matchup and I still think e has a higher ceiling than he has shown so far.
AI posted a prop with Rudy Gobert earlier and I still think it is a fantastic play now. The Pelicans give up 17.1 rebounds per game and 24.2 points per game to centers this year thus far. They played earlier this year and Gobert went nuts and I don’t think it crazy if we see a similiar game tonight!
Outside of Gobert, I love Bismack Byiombo as well. I think you can use both centers tonight on DK to get a little different. Dario Saric should also see a big uptick and has been very efficient with his time on the court this year.
