Well last night delivered once again! Our tools and picks have been spot on of late and we’ll look to continue that tonight with a smaller, but exciting six game slate sporting Harden, Russ, LeBron, and CP3. Three of the four draw top matchups while one, not so much. We’ll discuss them all so lets dive right in!
NYK @ PHI
Players to Target
Knicks: Derrick Rose, Carmelo Anthony
Sixers: Joel Embiid, Nik Stauskas
This is a game featuring a Knicks team in free fall and the Sixers who have been playing some good basketball. This will be more competitive than one might expect and Vegas agrees with just a 2 point spread being offered. Joel Embiid comes at an expensive price tag of $8K on DraftKings, and he’ll need 48 DK Points for value, a number he’s eclipsed just once all season. I lean towards using him more so on FanDuel where he’s $7500 and needing just 37.5 FD Points, a number he’s more capable of reaching with a 30 minute limit. Carmelo is more of a GPP play tonight, as he has been a majority of the season. He’s gone over 6x just once in his last five meetings with Philly and his price has jumped to the upper $7K’s. Philly does struggle against 3’s so Melo will be a top option at the SF position tonight in tournaments.
