Cash Plays

This will be the most expensive Giannis Antetokounmpo has been facing the Cavs in at least a year.  For what it’s worth, he’s exceeded projections in four of his last five games against Cleveland.  He’s easier to work into your DraftKings lines at $11,400 vs $12,300 on FanDuel.  On a short slate, you’ll have to get creative finding value if you roster the Greek Freak.  He has a plus matchup tonight.

If you don’t want to pay for the big-ticket, but want exposure to the Cavs’ weak defense, take a look at Khris Middleton.  Guards average +5 against Cleveland and Middleton has hit projections in seven straight games.  Also a better bargain on DraftKings ($7300) compared to his $7800 FanDuel price tag, he went for 7x value in the last home game.  He’s averaging 18 shot attempts and nine three-pointers per game over his last three games.  He keeps a balanced stat sheet providing a nice floor in our cash lineups.

GPP Plays

Rajon Rondo has gone for GPP-type (6x or better) value in five of his last eight games.  It’s no coincidence that those five games included four double-doubles and a triple-double.  He’s $6000 on both DraftKings and FanDuel.  Washington is giving up +3 to Guards this season.
