DraftKings NBA Picks March 29

We are up to ten NBA games in the main tournament tonight. DraftKings has been splitting the night and the earlier games to help with the botched lineup lock thing, but it hasn’t helped quash the Twitterstorm much. The consensus is that a large percentage of the players want the game time lock back on. We will see where this ends up. At any rate, they are all in the main tournament tonight. Keep an eye our for resting players as the season draws to a close!

More from DFS

The money line last night was all the way up at 279.25 DraftKings points. Did that have something to do with none of the late games being included? It didn’t help my lineups. My late lineups did great. The early? Awful. Thanks to Cody Zeller and Marqese Chriss.

The winning lineup was a solid 359.5 DraftKings points, which was nearly 15 points ahead of second place! All I can say is that I should have left Karl-Anthony Towns in my lineup. He also hit on the bargains of Ish Smith, Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot, and Monta Ellis. Not to mention a nice game from Jared Dudley.

I can’t stress enough how important it is to watch our Twitter feed right up until lock time. We will try and relay the information out to you as soon as we can, along with any lineup changes. If you can’t do that, it may be best to avoid any of the later games. With the season running down, playoff contenders are sitting players more and more, and there isn’t always a lot of advanced notice.

Point Guards

Best Bets:

Russell Westbrook ($13,200): Worried about Orlando’s defense? Westbrook put 83.5 DraftKings points on them in the first meeting. He also put up 74.75 DraftKings points on Dallas’s really solid defense on Monday. Worried about his production against Philadelphia? He took 12 shots – six from the field and six from the foul line – and made all of them. The blowout was the reason he only played 28 minutes. It’s getting harder and harder to find a reason to fade Westbrook. Do so at your own risk.

Stephen Curry ($8,800): Curry actually missed a triple-double by the assist column last night against Houston. He has a bit of a tougher matchup against the Spurs tonight, but so long as the game stays close, Curry and company are trying to get the top seed in the West. There shouldn’t be anyone resting tonight, and Curry usually brings it in big games.

Honorable Mention:

Kemba Walker ($7,800): Walker has absolutely abused Toronto this year. He has 167.5 DraftKings points in just three games against the Raptors. If he can do it again, he is over a 7x value! He may just be worth fading Westbrook for!

Dennis Schroder ($7,700): Schroder had a good night against the Suns last night. He could do the same against Philly tonight. He has 106.25 DraftKings points in three games against the Sixers so far this year. That would leave him a tad under value, but Schroder has played much better in March. He looks like a solid option with a stable floor.

Elfrid Payton ($7,300): Payton has had quite a month of March. He is averaging 13.7 points, 8.2 assists, 8 rebounds, 1.3 steals, and even 0.7 blocks in that time. All while shooting his best percentages of the season. Payton racked up 52.75 DraftKings points on the Thunder in the first meeting. I wouldn’t rule out the possibility of it happening again.

Dark Horses:

T.J. McConnell ($5,500): McConnell had a nice night against the Nets last night. Tonight he gets a defense that isn’t as bad as the Nets, but they are fairly close. At least against point guards. Don’t expect a huge night from McConnell, but he is a suitable bargain play if you pay up for Westbrook.

Malcolm Brogdon ($5,100): Brogdon picked up a double-double last night, and has now been over 5x value in eight of the last 11 games. Brogdon is a solid value source right now, but is not one of the top offense options on the team. That limits his upside, but he is still a very good value play.

Yogi Ferrell ($4,200): If Ferrell is in the starting lineup, he is a huge bargain at this price. He picked up 31.5 DraftKings points against the Thunder on Monday. The Pelicans are worse defensively at the point than Oklahoma City, so Ferrell could have even better numbers tonight. So long as he starts, that is.

My picks: Walker(PG), Payton(G); Schroder(PG), McConnell(G), Brogdon(SG)

Shooting Guards

Best Bets:

Bradley Beal ($7,800): Beal racked up 53.75 DraftKings points in the first meeting with the Clippers. Chris Paul shut down John Wall, but the Clippers had no answer for Beal. Don’t be shocked if it happens again. Beal could be in for another very good game.

Victor Oladipo ($6,000): Oladipo’s first game against his former team didn’t go so well. There is reason for optimism though. The Magic still aren’t strong against shooting guards. Oladipo has also put up at least 5x value in seven of the last nine games. He is playing well right now, and should do much better against his former team this time around.

Honorable Mention:

Evan Fournier ($5,300): Fournier picked up 31 DraftKings points in the first meeting against Oklahoma City. He has also been on a roll lately, hitting at least 5x value in eight of the last ten games. He has the potential to outscore Oladipo at a smaller price. The Magic are still clinging to slim playoff hopes. As long as they are, expect Fournier to keep producing at his current rate.

Josh Richardson ($5,300): Richardson finally hit 5x value on Monday, but not by much. He has a lot of potential, but has realized very little of it so far, even with the extra minutes afforded to him with Dion Waiters out. At least he is becoming a low risk option to take a flier on.

Joe Ingles ($5,000): Ingles put up nice numbers with Gordon Hayward out. If Hayward is forced to miss tonight’s game as well, Ingles is going to be a great play against a porous Kings defense.

Dark Horses:

Tony Allen ($4,600): Allen racked up 31.25 DraftKings points in the first game against Indiana. That has stood as one of Allen’s finest games of the season. He has the potential to do it again since the Pacers still have a revolving door at shooting guard. Allen’s rebounding ability makes him an enticing punt play.

Rodney Hood ($4,600): Hood lit up the Knicks on Monday. He also lit up the Kings in their first meeting. Hood racked up 38.5 DraftKings points in that game. He has the potential to put up at least that, but he remains one of the most risky daily options because of his lack of consistency.

Nik Stauskas ($4,100): Stauskas has at least 5x value in five of the last seven games. He doesn’t have a lot of upside, but his consistent production makes him a favorite punt play when you spend big elsewhere.

My pick: Hood(SG), Allen(UTIL); Richardson(F)

Small Forwards

Best Bets:

Kawhi Leonard ($9,900): Leonard put up 54.75 DraftKings points in just 32 minutes in his only game against the Warriors this year. That was with Kevin Durant in the lineup! The Spurs revolve around Leonard, so he will have plenty of chances to a big point total again tonight!

Giannis Antetokounmpo ($9,700): Giannis has scored 20 or more in five straight games, but has only hit 5x value in three of those games. Boston held him to 40.75 DraftKings points in the first meeting. There is a chance they could do it again, so he carries some risk tonight.

Honorable Mention:

Robert Covington ($6,900): Covington got back on track with a big game against the Nets last night. He has a chance to do the same against a short-handed Hawks team. 5x value seems like the floor tonight, especially if Philadelphia only has eight or nine players again tonight.

Jae Crowder ($6,200): Crowder has at least 25 DraftKings points in six straight games. He put up 37.5 against the Bucks in the first meeting. The Bucks have tightened things up a little with Middleton back, but Crowder is the type of small forward that can give them issues. He is playing at a high level now. Expect that to continue.

Dark Horses:

Taurean Prince ($5,100): Prince is still getting significant minutes with Thabo Sefalosha and Kent Bazemore ailing. Philadelphia will present a little more of a challenge, but Prince has at least 5x value in the last two games. If he gets more than 30 minutes, which he should, he is producing plenty for his price.

Terrence Ross ($5,000): After a rough start in Orlando, Ross now has at least 27 DraftKings points in five straight games. It will be a tough task to get that against the Thunder, but he should still be right around 5x value, and likely wont be highly used.

Joe Johnson ($4,700): Johnson is still starting at power forward, and putting up good numbers, with Derrick Favors out. He could have some issues putting up with Skal Labassiere, but I would still expect Johnson to be above 5x value once again.

Andre Roberson ($3,700): Roberson picked up 28.75 DraftKings points in the first meeting with Orlando. He has been above 5x value in four of the past six games, so he looks like a safe punt tonight.

My Pick: Crowder(SF), Roberson(F); Johnson(SF)

Power Forwards

Best Bets:

Anthony Davis ($10,800): Davis has been huge with DeMarcus Cousins out. Cousins is still listed as questionable. If he missed another game tonight, I like Davis to go nuts on Dallas. He has 181.25 DraftKings points on the Mavs in just three games this year. Watch for status updates, and lock A.D. in if Cousins sits.

Blake Griffin ($7,900): How is Blake this cheap? He put up 46.25 DraftKings points on Washington in the first meeting. True, he has had four straight games that are under par for him, but they were against Utah, Dallas, an improving Kings front, and a blowout against the Lakers in which he played just 26 minutes. I expect a very nice game from Griffin tonight.

Honorable Mention:

Draymond Green ($7,500): Green was a menace to the Spurs in the first meeting. He racked up 55.5 DraftKings points in that one. He was more prone to big games with Durant in the lineup, strange as that seems. He is also not likely to pick up five steals tonight, but he should still hit at least 5x value.

LaMarcus Aldridge ($7,100): Aldridge racked up 51 DraftKings points in the first game against Draymond and the Warriors. The Spurs are firing on all cylinders right now, and the play of Aldridge is a big reason why. He has at least 5x value in six of the last seven games.

James Johnson ($6,600): Johnson continues to put up good numbers off the bench against anyone not named Phoenix. The Knicks aren’t good defensively, nor are they all that athletic up front. Johnson should be good to go for his normal 5x value.

Dark Horses:

Zach Randolph ($6,300): I would only play Randolph at this price if Marc Gasol sits again. There is too much volatility at this price if he comes off the bench. Randolph had a big game on Monday, and could against the Pacers as well if Gasol misses another game.

Ersan Ilyasova ($6,000): He didn’t have a big game against his former team the first time around because he was still the backup to Paul Millsap. This time around, Ilyasova will start against his former team, and looks poised to have a nice game against them. He hasn’t always been worth this price filling in for Millsap, but tonight he should be.

Serge Ibaka ($6,000): The Hornets have had all kinds of issues against power forwards lately. Ibaka has 66.25 DraftKings points in just 58 minutes against Charlotte in two games this year. He looks like a strong play here tonight. ibaka has had a few really good games with Toronto. This could be another.

My pick: Aldridge(PF); Griffin(PF)

Best Bets:

Rudy Gobert ($8,600): Gobert has 152.5 DraftKings points in his three games against the Kings so far this year. He is on a tear anyway, posting at least 5x value in seven of the last ten games. The Kings likely wont know what hit him. You need to try to work Gobert in somewhere. If you can do it with Westbrook, let me know!

Hassan Whiteside ($8,400): Whiteside was dominated by Andre Drummond last night. He saw his double-double streak end at 15 games. This is no surprise. Drummond just dominates Whiteside. Now it’s Whiteside’s turn to give the Drummond treatment to the Knicks. He put up 51.5 DraftKings points in his first game against the Knicks. Look for more of the same tonight.

Honorable Mention:

Nikola Vucevic ($7,700): Vucevic played just 19 minutes in the first game against the Thunder because he was in foul trouble the whole game. Vucevic has hit 5x value or better in five straight and eight of his last nine games. He has a chance to do it against the Thunder if he can stay out of foul trouble in this one.

Dwight Howard ($7,600): It was another good game for Howard in the absence of Millsap. Philadelphia has done well against Howard this year, but Howard hasn’t faced them since they trashed their frontcourt. Howard could be in for yet another strong game tonight.

Al Horford ($6,900): The Bucks have been susceptible to being dominated by opposing centers lately. Horford hasn’t played Milwaukee yet this year, but he has eight straight games of more than 5x value. It should be nine after tonight.

Dark Horses:

Willy Hernangomez ($5,400): Hernangomez has kind of fallen off the radar lately since the Knicks only play him 25 minutes or less most nights, but he has still topped 5x value in four straight games. Whiteside struggles on the defensive end everywhere but blocking shots, so Hernangomez should be well above value tonight.

Greg Monroe ($5,200): Monroe had a huge game last night, and will look to do it again against a Boston frontcourt that is somewhere less than good. He racked up 44.75 DraftKings points in the first game against Boston despite hitting just four of ten shots. Monroe is a high level rebounder and shot blocker, which makes him a low risk proposition.

Steven Adams ($4,700): Adams racked up 30.5 DraftKings points in the first game against Orlando. It’s not all because of Vucevic getting into foul trouble. Vucevic has made strides defensively, but he still has a long ways to go. On a night chock full of great center options, Adams may be a great under the radar play.

My pick: Gobert(C); Gobert(C), Monroe(UTIL)
