Johnny G’s FanDuel NBA & DraftKings NBA Lineup Picks 11-1-17

It’s a husky 12 game NBA slate for Wednesday, November 1st.  The 3-3 Pacers play in Cleveland tonight.  I mention this because I was amazed to see Indiana 5th in the league in scoring through their first 6 games.  The Pelicans will host the team allowing the 3rd most points, the T-Wolves.

Cash Plays

You can grab Joel Embiid for his lowest salary ($7900) on DraftKings since their opener.  His ownership is usually low, but he has cash game-staple written all over his stat sheet.  All six games, he’s scored between 38 – 45.25 DraftKings points with the highest score coming in the last game on Monday.  He only plays 25 – 29 minutes, but averages a healthy 1.5 fantasy points per minute.  The key is having one of the highest usage rates on the slate.  Embiid draws a good matchup against Atlanta.

The Cavaliers are dead last in DraftKings points allowed to Shooting Guards.  That draws us to Victor Oladipo.  You’ll get a better price on FanDuel ($7900).  He’s dropped two duds in a row now, so tread carefully, but it’s difficult to ignore the matchup.  Oladipo is averaging 24 points, 4 rebounds, 3 assists, and almost 2 steals per game.  The first five games of the season, he was averaging over 17 shots per game.  The last two games have seen him shoot it on 24 times total.  With the complete lack of defense Cleveland plays against the back court, VO should have room to get the field goal attempts back up.

GPP Plays

Jrue Holiday‘s FanDuel salary has leveled off at $7400, a $500 increase from the start of the season.  Over his last five games, Holiday is averaging 36.58 FanDuel points.  He gets Minnesota tonight, who rank last in FanDuel points allowed to Point Guards.  Jrue is averaging nearly 37 minutes per game.  He’s excelled against weaker defenses (Cleveland on the 28th), so he’s a good bet to exceed value.
