NBA FanDuel Plays for 4/9/2019
By Chet Gresham - @ChetGresham
$6000 - PG - Celtics @ WAS
34.8 per 24.4 minutes || $172.4 per point
Rozier's quote this morning was, "I'm getting them up tonight." With the Celtics resting most of their players, Rozier will be a high volume play against a weak Wizards defense. The quote is worth something on a slate like this one.
$4500 - SG - Celtics @ WAS
27.6 per 18.1 minutes || $163 per point
Brown is another Celtics player who will go tonight in a strong matchup and along with Terry Rozier, will take the lead with Irving, Smart, Tatum, Morris, Hayward, Baynes and Horford all resting.
Daniel Theis and Guerschon Yabusele will also see good minutes and are worthy of value plays with it looking like the Celtics will have eight total players available tonight.
$12000 - PG - Thunder vs HOU
55.4 per 37.1 minutes || $216.6 per point
Westbrook continues to play all out to keep ahold of the sixth seed, as the Spurs and Clippers are only a half-game back in the seventh and eighth spot. There is going to be too much value to comprehend tonight, so paying up for him should be simple and I don't see any good reason not to.
$6300 - SF/PF - Bulls vs NYK
24.1 per 33 minutes || $261.4 per point
Sampson is taking his shot with the Bulls to finish out the season and so far it is paying off. In three games he's hit 34.8, 36.3 and 45 DK points and tonight will get a rematch with the Knicks. Ride the wave.
$7700 - SF - Magic @ CHI
Hezonja has taken to the point guard position well, putting up 57 and 48 DK points while running the show over the last two games and he had 50.3 DK points in the previous game at small forward. Coach Tisdale says Hezonja will stay at the point to finish the season and a matchup with the JV Bulls doesn't look imposing.
$11800 - PG/SG - Rockets @ OKC
57.5 per 37 minutes || $205.2 per point
The Rockets are just a half-game behind the Nuggets for the No. 2 seed, making Harden a worthwhile spend up tonight in Oklahoma City. Even with all the value tonight, it could be tough to get both Harden and Westbrook on your team and if I must choose I'm leaning Westbrook.
$6000 - SG - Pelicans vs GSW
29.2 per 38.2 minutes || $205.5 per point
Clark has been on a tear with 32.5, 42.5 and 51.5 DK points in his last three games. He's getting most of those points from three-point land, which makes me a little uneasy, but at just $4,600, his upside is just too high not to consider.
$5500 - PF - Suns @ DAL
38.2 per 36.3 minutes || $144 per point
Deandre Ayton and Richaun Holmes are both out again tonight, which has helped Bender to 47.5 and 30.5 DK points in his last two matchups. He should again be in line for a strong evening, especially against a weak Dallas interior defense.
$3500 - PF - Celtics @ WAS
7.1 per 13 minutes || $493 per point
Theis has averaged a DK point per minute in limited action this year but will get a chance for big minutes tonight at near rock bottom pricing. If you want to fit Harden and Westbrook, you'll need a couple of minimum priced guys.
$3600 - SF - Lakers vs POR
44.5 per 46.5 minutes || $80.9 per point
Jones put up decent DK points with 20.3 and 26 with 27 and 25 minutes but on Sunday he spiked to 38.5 DK points in 38 minutes against Utah. He filled the stat sheet as he only took five shots and ended with five points. He'll likely get another shot to show his stuff with the Lakers resting a gaggle of players once again.
$6300 - SG - Heat vs PHI
38.1 per 34.7 minutes || $165.4 per point
His last home game ever. He won't go out with a whimper.
