FanDuel NBA Top Picks and Value Plays for Wednesday March 22, 2017

Last night was a rough one. Boogie Cousins went off and so did just about every other player I didn’t tout yesterday. Sometimes that stuff happens in the NBA.

We have eight games tonight on the main FanDuel NBA slate. Eight games to make up for yesterday.

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.

Games Spread Over Under Totals
Charlotte @ Orlando Charlotte -3.5 206
Indiana @ Boston Boston -8.5 209
Detroit @ Chicago Pick 202
Philadelphia @ Oklahoma City Oklahoma City -10.5 219
Atlanta @ Washington Washington -7 212.5

New York @ Utah Utah -10 201.5

 

Point Guards

You can pay up for Russell Westbrook ($13,000) if you want to and I just might wind up doing so but I think someone with a better matchup in what might be a closer game is Washington Wizards point guard John Wall ($10,000) against a Atlanta Hawks defense allowing point guards to average 50 FanDuel points a game this season and 54.7 over the past five games. In 37 home games this season Wall is averaging 46.37 FanDuel points per game, a past five game FanDuel floor of 33.8 points and a ceiling of 46.7 points.
