(Maximum Sports Channels – Phil Naessens) We have five games tonight on the main NBA slate at FanDuel. It should be a good slate as there are a couple of close games with decent implied totals. Should be a fun slate to try and take down. Please remember something; in the NBA things change rather quickly so you should try and be sure to the best of your ability that the player or players you have chosen are actually playing.

Game Spread Over Under Totals
Phoenix @ Brooklyn Brooklyn -2.5 219
Toronto @ Miami Miami -3 203
Clippers @ Dallas Clippers -3 207
Memphis @ San Antonio San Antonio -8.5 201
New York @ Portland Portland -8 219

Point Guards

There is plenty of value to be found at point guard tonight but if you want to spend up tonight the biggest bang for your buck is probably Los Angeles Clippers point guard Chris Paul ($9300) against a Dallas Mavericks defense allowing point guards a season average 37.6 FanDuel points per game and 48.6 FanDuel points per game over the past five games. In 24 road games this season Paul is averaging 38.93 FanDuel points per game with a past five game FanDuel floor of 17.3 points and a ceiling of 42.6 points. Paul has a March Usage Rate of 25 percent and a 63 percent True Shooting percentage.

Value plays tonight under $6000 bucks include Cory Joseph ($5000) and Spencer Dinwiddie ($4600).

Shooting Guard

I’m not a big fan of the tonight’s offerings at shooting guard. I suppose if I were to use a top tier guy tonight I would go with Phoenix Suns shooting guard Devin Booker against a Brooklyn Nets defense allowing shooting guards to average 44 FanDuel points per game this season and 37 points per game over their past five. In 33 road games this season Booker is averaging 27.73 FanDuel points per game and over his last five games Booker has a FanDuel floor of 18.3 points and a ceiling of 44 points. In March Booker has a Usage Rate of 27 percent and a True Shooting percentage of 50 percent.

Value plays tonight under $6000 bucks include J.J. Redick ($4400) and Caris LeVert ($4300).

Small Forwards

There isn’t all that much to like at small forward tonight either but if a top tier player is what you seek Phoenix Suns small forward T.J. Warren ($6600) has a good opportunity tonight against a Brooklyn Nets defense allowing small forwards a season average 47.4 FanDuel points per game and 44.9 points per game over the past five games. In 29 road games this season Warren is averaging 23.22 FanDuel points per game with a past five game FanDuel floor of 22 points and a 41.3 point ceiling. During the month of March Warren has an 18.1 point Usage Rate and a 58 percent True Shooting percentage.

Value plays tonight under $6000 bucks include Vince Carter ($3700) and Harrison Barnes ($5600).

Power Forwards

There are a few more options tonight at power forward but the one with probably the best opportunity is New York Knicks power forward Kristaps Porzingis ($7000). The Portland Trail Blazers have allowed power forwards a season average 47.4 FanDuel points per game and 57.5 over the past five games. In 33 road games this season Porzingis is averaging 32.80 FanDuel points per game with a past five game FanDuel floor of 25.1 points and a ceiling of 43 points. During the month of March Porzingis has a 25.5 Usage Rate and a 51 percent True Shooting percentage.

Value plays tonight under $6000 bucks include Trevor Booker ($4800) and Noah Vonleh ($3800).

Centers

There are several top tier center options tonight but the one with the best opportunity tonight is probably Portland Trail Blazers center Jusuf Nurkic ($7700) against a Knicks defense allowing centers a season average 50.5 FanDuel points a game and 61.9 over their past five games. In five homes games this season Nurkic is averaging 42.76 points with a past five game FanDuel floor of 7.6 points and a 41.8 point ceiling. During the month of March Nurkic has a Usage Rate of 25.6 percent and a 52 percent True Shooting percentage.

Value plays tonight under $6000 bucks include Guillermo Hernangomez ($5100) and Alan Williams ($5700).

Good luck at FanDuel tonight!!
