Cash Plays

Ersan Ilyasova is on a good run lately, having hit value in seven of his last eight.  He’s $5900 on both DraftKings and FanDuel, making him a better bargain on FD.  He’s making just shy of 50% of his three-point attempts over the last eight games and is taking more than four per game over that span.  He gets a plus matchup against the Clippers today as the Hawks are a slight road underdog.

Since serving a one game suspension for violating team rules, Serge Ibaka has exceeded value in all three games he’s played.  He’s $5700 on DraftKings and $5900 on FanDuel.  He draws the weak front court defense of the Brooklyn Nets, who give up +4 to Power Forwards.  He’s shooting 46.5% from the field since he’s been back and averaging nearly seven rebounds per game.  The Raptors come to Brooklyn as seven point favorites according to early Vegas data.

GPP Plays

Both Andre Drummond and Stanley Johnson are listed as questionable today.  If either, or both, can’t go, I like Tobias Harris to get a bump in his usage rate.  He’s fresh off going for nearly 7x value against Houston on Saturday, where he saw his usage rate jump to 29.5%.  He’s logged at least 32 minutes in four of his last five games.  The Pelicans are a good matchup, giving up +4 to Power Forwards on the season.  Harris is $6500 on DraftKings where he’s eligible at either Forward position and $6800 on FanDuel.
