|Top-Tier||James Harden (BKN) – FP 56.24 |
With Durant still sidelned, its leaving Harden with plenty of opportunities. He is getting healthy minutes and averaging 29 points over the last 5 games. Tonight, he will go up against his former team and that should be a special game for him. Look for him to blow up and potentially put up monster numbers
Steph Curry (GSW) – FP 50.94
Curry gets a great matchup against Portland tonight in what is expected to be a high scoring game. Last game was a complete blowout against LAL where he only played 26 minutes and scored 16 points, and that might be the reason why he is cheaply priced in today but look for him to bounce back. Look for him to one-up Lillard in this battle and should be able to return value.
|Karl-Anthony Towns (MIN) – FP 50.68|
He is pretty much a walking double-double machine. Even in limited minutes, he still manages to salve his numbers. Tonight, he gets Charlotte and I am expecting this one to remain a close game for most of the time. Look for him to get high 30s minutes and be able to get another double-double.
|Mid-Tier||Kyle Lowry (TOR) – FP 45.37 |
It seems like Toronto can’t catch a break. Just when Lowry is back Fred VanVleet is now injured. This should open up minutes and attempts from the back court for Lowry. This is also the reason why I also have Terence Davis on the list below. Look for him to get high 30s minutes and return value.
|Enes Kanter (POR) – FP 37.71 |
He is averaging a monster 14 rebounds per game of the last 5 games. He has also averaged double digits points through that same period. Tonight, against GSW should be a fast paced game and look for him to have another double double.
|Low-Tier||Terence Davis (TOR) – FP 20.55 |
The same logic from above applies here too. With VanVleet sidelined, look for him to get enough opportunities to be able to smash tonight’s value.
|Talen Horton-Tucker (LAL) – FP 23.49 |
Tonight, LAL faces Sacramento and I am expecting this to get ugly and out of hand real fast. This is Lakers back-to-back game and they would want to put this away early and get their starters some rest. This is where Talen comes in and should get extended minutes and be able to deliver.
