FanDuel NBA Top Picks and Value Plays for Tuesday March 14, 2017

We have five games tonight on the main FanDuel NBA slate. There is value to be found everywhere so let’s go find it!

I need to remind you this column is written in the morning. Things change quickly in the NBA so you need to be certain whoever you have selected is actually playing that night.

Also; there is a winter storm on the East Coast so be sure if you pick players from a game on the East that the game is actually going to be played tonight. Otherwise you will get a zero for your player.

Detroit @ Cleveland Detroit -1 213.5
Oklahoma City @ Brooklyn OKC -6 220.5
Indiana @ New York New York -4.5 211.5
Portland @ New Orleans New Orleans -2.5 216
Philadelphia @ Golden State Golden State -16.5 225.5
