Happy Sunday. Let’s take a look at this rough 3 game slate real quick.
MIL @ TOR (-4.5) o/u 231
MIL: Pace down game in a tough matchup with the Raptors. Giannis has the highest ceiling on this slate, but with the matchup I don’t mind fading him. Lopez should get 30 min and is cheap. Not sure what the deal is with Middleton right now so I’ll be staying away for now. Bledsoe has been playing well except got into foul trouble last game. He should bounceback here.
Tier 1: Bledsoe (GPP)
Tier 2: Giannis, Lopez
Tier 3: Brogdon
TOR: Pace up spot here for the Raptors. Kawhi is my favorite play from the slate today. Siakam and Ibaka are fairly priced here. Lowry is coming down in price, but I would rather pay down to Bledsoe here.
Tier 1: Leonard
Tier 2: Siakam, Ibaka
Tier 3: Jonas (GPP)
UTA @ SA (+3.5) o/u 218
UTA: Gobert should be well rested for this one after being ejected in 3 minutes. Mitchell has been more miss than hit lately so I’ll be avoiding him for now. Crowder and Jingles aren’t too pricey, but are more lineup fillers compared to core plays.
Tier 1: Gobert, Rubio
Tier 2: Crowder, Jingles
SA: LMA seems too cheap here at $7300. Outside of him I don’t really want to target anyone here. Gay and Derozan are more Tier 2 plays for me. Forbes and White are getting the start and are worth a look as punt plays. Mills off the bench should get some extra run too with the Spurs playing small and Bertans just being ruled out with Cunningham.
Tier 1: LMA, Mills (GPP)
Tier 2: Derozan, Gay, Forbes, White
Tier 3: Poeltl, Belinelli
CHA @ NY (+6) o/u 224
CHA: Kemba coming back up in price and we could see some extra Frank Ntilikina guarding him for French heritage night. Zeller is in a great spot against Kanter and Robinson and has seen minutes in the 30s recently so I like him the most from this game.
Tier 1: Zeller, Kemba (GPP)
Tier 2: Marvin, Lamb, Batum
Tier 3: Parker
NY: Super hard to trust this rotation still. With it being French heritage night I do think Ntilikina gets more run and is worth a look as a dart in GPPs. Vonleh is still in play here as well as Kanter. Kanter is getting up in price while still only seeing 25-26 minutes so that comes with some risk, but this Hornet front court is beatable.
Tier 1: Ntilikina (GPP), Kanter (GPP), Vonleh
Tier 2: Hardaway, Robinson
Tier 3: Knox, Dotson, Trier, Mudiay
Good talk and good luck
