Westbrook’s April Usage Rate of 41.1 and True Shooting percentage of 57 percent should give the Nuggets fits tonight.

Value plays under $6000 bucks tonight include Jamal Murray ($4300) and Ish Smith ($5600).

Shooting Guards

The Sacramento Kings have allowed 51 FanDuel points per game over their past five games to shooting guards and they should have their hands full tonight with the Houston Rockets James Harden ($12,100).
