Point Guard

George Hill (UTA) $6,300 vs. Magic

Taking a step back from their early season success, the Magic have struggled against point guards lately. George Hill returned from a concussion and didn’t have a minute’s restriction, so it seems that all systems are a go. He has been phenomenal this season for the Jazz and should continue his resurgent season tonight.

Shooting Guard

Bradley Beal (WAS) $7,000 vs. 76ers

There is a chance that John Wall (pinkie) misses the game tonight, which would benefit Bradley Beal tremendously. Even if he does play, Wall shot 4-of-21 from the field in his last game. Beal has been averaging nearly 20 shot attempts his last five games, including hoisting 26 shots last game.

Small Forward

Kawhi Leonard (SAS) $8,500 vs. Suns

In three games last season, Kawhi Leonard averaged 21 points, five rebounds, three assists and two steals against the Suns. Leonard is shooting an absurd 51.6% from the arc in his last 10 games. I mean, come on. GET HIM IN YOUR LINEUPS!

Power Forward

Serge Ibaka (ORL) $5,700 vs. Jazz

From the time I originally picked Serge Ibaka for this spot, to the time I started writing his blurb, this game’s point total rose five points. It’s understandable that the Jazz are one of the best defensive and slowest paced teams in the NBA, but his salary is something you cannot shy away from! Ibaka has double-doubled in three straight games and is a good gamble tonight to post 28+ DraftKings points.

Center

Nerlens Noel (PHI) $5,500 vs. Wizards

Nerlens Noel is finally getting back to his normal self. He has seen 20+ minutes in his last four games and that has yielded 25.4 DraftKings points per game. Joel Embiid is out tonight, so he has an excellent chance to maximize his current $5,500 value against the Wizards.

Guard

Eric Bledsoe (PHO) $6,500 vs. Spurs

Much like Serge Ibaka, you cannot shy away from Eric Bledsoe even though he’s playing the Spurs at his value. Perhaps it was because he only attempted four shots in his last game. Prior to that game, he had been averaging 24 points, 7.8 assists, 3.5 rebounds, and two steals per game in January.

Forward

Gordon Hayward (UTA) $7,200 vs. Magic

Gordon Hayward is Utah’s hottest shooter averaging 53.2% on field goal attempts. He is their best player and at his value and the remaining players available, you cannot go wrong here.

Utility

E’Twaun Moore (NOR) $3,100 vs. Bulls

E’Twaun Moore presents a little value because he is facing his former team. He is averaging 24 minutes and eight shot attempts in his past four games. Don’t expect 20+ DraftKings points, but he should be fine for 14-18 DraftKings points.
