The Vegas Lines
Highest Scoring Games
Kings vs. Raptors- With an o/u of 207 this is the highest total on the night. This game should be rather high pace and it should include a lot of Lowry/Derozan for the Raps. On the Kings side this game has Boogie written all over it.
Lowest Scoring Games
Hawks vs. Magic- The lowest scoring on the evening is set at 200. This will be a battle of the bigs as Vuc takes on Al Horford. I also love Millsap in this game.
Pace of Play
Fastest Projected Games
Pelicans vs. Nuggets- This game has a projected game pace of 98.7. With Jrue Holiday and Tyreke Evans back the Pelicans have been pushing the ball up the court. If you are looking for value look no further than Jameer Nelson.
Hawks vs. Magic- The lowest scoring on the night is also the slowest pace. Like I said above this game should shape up as a big man game. I love the post men in this one.
Defense vs. Position
Best PG Matchups
Jameer Nelson vs. Jrue Holiday – The Pelicans are ranked 29th against PGs in the league. Jameer will get the start again tonight and is a great value for the money.
Worst PG Matchups
Rajon Rondo vs. Kyle Lowry- Lowry is 2nd in the league against opposing PGs. Rondo has had a great season this year, but Lowry will look to shut him down. I think it is all about the Boogie tonight.
Best SG Matchups
Giannis Antetokounmpo vs. Eric Bledsoe – The Greek Freak has an up and down season, but he has a great matchup tonight. I like Giannis to hit value tonight and possibly exceed.
Worst SG Matchups
Kyle Korver vs. Victor Oladipo- Korver hasn’t had a season to write him about. The Magic are ranked 8th against opposing SGs. I think all the fantasy goodness runs through the post tonight.
Best SF Matchups
James Johnson vs. Rudy Gay- Johnson hit value the other night against the Hornets. Tonight he gets the best matchup on the night against the Kings. I love this matchup for value tonight.
Worst SF Matchups%
Evan Fournier vs. Kent Bazemore The Baze has played great defense lately. Fournier has cooled since the beginning of the season. I am staying away from the Magic forwards tonight.
Best PF Matchups
Anthony Davis vs. Kenneth Faried- The Manimal doesn’t have anything for the Brow tonight. AD is projected at 50+ DK points and should get every bit of them.
Worst PF Matchups
Jabari Parker vs.Jon Leuer- Parker has also had an up and down season this year. Leuer has been a surprise for the Suns this year. If I am rolling out a Buck it is Monroe tonight.
Best C Matchups
Greg Monroe vs. Alex Len- Len has been drawing the start for Chandler. Monroe has become one of the best Cs in the league. He has a great shot to exceed value tonight.
Worst C Matchups
Bismack Biyombo vs. Boogie Cousins- Biz is not a scorer. He gets the best all around C in the league tonight. I am staying away tonight.
Lineup Quick Hits
Superstar Worth Paying For
Boogie Cousins- All the Boogie all the time tonight. Boogie can fill up every stat category tonight and should exceed value. I am spending up on Boogie tonight.
Save Big Bucks By Drafting
James Johnson- JJ has a great matchup tonight. I have him projected at 25 DK points tonight. He has a great shot to hit value tonight.
Dud of the Night
Victor Oladipo- Oladipo has had a rough season and he is coming off of the bench now. I use to try to run him out in every line, but he just hasn’t been up to par this year.
