Tonight’s games were difficult to decipher for me. There are 10 games going on, but a lot of these teams are playing tomorrow night. I tend to look heavily into whether teams are playing an important game the next day, and I try to gamble on who will get the most usage. The Sports Chief will be giving out cash game advice today, so let’s double our money and fight for another day!


Is there a better DFS player than Ben Simmons? He averages 41.9 DK points a night, and always hovers around $8,000…tonight he’s $8,300.  Joel Embiid is listed as out, so Jimmy Butler ($7,400) and Ben Simmons will be relied upon heavily. Mike Muscala at $3,800 is a solid cash game choice tonight, as he can get you around 20 or so DK points.


Blake Griffin is my top pick tonight. At $9,400, he looks to dominate a beat down 76ers frontcourt with Muscala and Chandler defending him. I look for him to drop over 40 points tonight.


Jamal Murray is a natural scorer, he has taken 20 plus shots the past two games. With this being said…I think he will do the same tonight, Gary Harris is out and Murray will control the backcourt.


I also like the Kings/Cavs matchup. The over/under is at 223, and both teams are relatively young. I have Collin Sexton ($4,900), Marvin Bagley III ($5,300), and Larry Nance Jr. ($4,900) on my squad. I will have to monitor prior to tip-off regarding Bagley…but Sexton plays 30 minutes a game and Larry Nance…well…I just have a “gut” feeling about him tonight. He blocks shots occasionally and could flirt with a double-double. If Bagley is a “no-go” …pick Ibaka at $6,300 against BKN and Muscala at $3,800.


The obvious cash game choice tonight will be Bam Adebayo at $4,200. I predict 76% ownership in my double up game. The Heat are playing Phoenix, so I like him a lot anyway with Whiteside being out.
