|Top-Tier||Damian Lillard (POR) – FP 46.77 He has scored more than 35 points in 4 out of the last 5 games. The only time he didn’t was a blowout loss against LA Clippers. There are only 5 games on the main slate tonight but this game against Chicago has the highest o/u 232.5 points currently. As long as he gets mid-30s minutes, he should have no problem returning value.||Nikola Jokic (DEN) – FP 52.85 He has been on fire to start the season. He has scored a triple double in 4 out of the 6 games so far this season. The only 2 games he missed; he was 1 rebound short in each game. Tonight, he gets a second match against Minnesota and have no problem returning value. We would just be hoping that he lowers his turnovers.|
|Mid-Tier||Zach Lavine (CHI) – FP 40.59 He had his best game last time against Dallas. It was encouraging that he got 39 minutes and contributed a season high 39 points along with 6 rebounds and 5 assists. They are underdogs against Portland today, so we expect him to get plenty of minutes in the game tonight. |
Donovan Mitchell (UTA) – FP 38.76 He also had his best game of the season last time against SA Spurs while only playing 29 minutes. He was an assist short of double-double and has scored more than 20points in all but 1 game so far this season.
|Rudy Gobert (UTA) – FP 38.32 At this price of $7,700, he should be able to return value as long as he gets enough playing time. There have been times that he gets into foul trouble and gets mid-20s playing minutes and we would surely be hoping for more than that tonight.|
|Low-Tier||Lou Williams (LAC) – FP 21.90 He is getting mid-20s playing minutes but if the game tonight against SA Spurs get out of hand and if LA Clippers get up early, look for him to play more minutes. He should be a safe play as long as he gets enough minutes.||Enes Kanter (POR) – FP 24.53 He is a deeper play but priced in accurately at $5,400. Portland is a heavy favorite and if they get up early, Kanter should get plenty of playing minutes.|
