Point Guard

While everyone and their mother will be chasing the triple double machine aka Russell Westbrook I think I will go with Portland Trail Blazers point guard Damian Lillard ($9100).  The Thunder has allowed point guards to average 45.6 FanDuel points per game over the past five and 44.9 FanDuel points this season. Lillard is averaging 39.2 FanDuel points per game at home this season with a home Usage Rate of 30.6 percent as well as a True Shooting percentage of 57 percent in 25 home games this season.

Shooting Guard

Golden State Warriors shooting guard Klay Thompson ($7000) has a very good opportunity tonight against a Chicago Bulls defense allowing shooting guards to average 39.2 FanDuel points a game over the past five and 34.3 FanDuel points per game this season. In 30 games on the road this season Thompson is averaging 28.38 FanDuel points per game with a road Usage Rate of 25.8 and a True Shooting percentage of 54 percent.
