 Jefe's NBA Rundown - 12/30
Posted by Jeff Collins on Friday, December 30, 2016 - 17:32

As always, the rundown is designed to give you an opinion on some different players or situations on the slate today. You need to be reacting to news throughout the day. Always keep an eye on Twitter for the most up-to-date information.

FanDuel really screwed up today’s slate (in my opinion) by trying to turn it into two smaller slates by including the 4PM ET game in an “Early Slate” and then not including the 7 PM and 7:30 PM games in their Main Slate. DraftKings has some great end of the year contests though, with the full slate, so I might have to jump over there tonight...

  • Vegas: Wizards -8.5, O/U: 222.5
  • Wizards: 15th Pace, 13th Scoring, 7th Most points allowed
  • Nets: Fastest Pace, 9th Scoring, 2nd Most points allowed

The entire Wizards team is in play in one of the best possible matchups in the entire NBA. If Bradley Beal misses the game due to his ankle injury, it gives a boost to the other four starters and guys like Marcus Thornton and Kelly Oubre, who will also pick up added minutes. John Wall, Marcin Gortat, Otto Porter, and Markieff Morris are all in play. I especially...

As always, the rundown is designed to give you an opinion on some different players or situations pn the slate today. You need to be reacting to news throughout the day. Always keep an eye on Twitter for the most up-to-date information. It’s like every other slate is a good one… Last night was awesome, but tonight we’re back to an ugly one. I will be making some pretty strong stands though, so that means I do believe there are edges to be had...

Miami Heat @ Charlotte Hornets

Vegas: Hornets -7, O/U: 201

Heat: 25th Pace, 28th Scoring, 7th Fewest points allowed

Hornets: 16th Pace, 14th Scoring, 10th Fewest points allowed

Hassan Whiteside - Whiteside has a great matchup with a weak Charlotte interior that guys have put up big games against. Whiteside has struggled recently as the Heat have played without Goran Dragic. His price has come down a little, but not a ton. He is a GPP only option for me today.

IF GORAN DRAGIC SITS, then we need to look at Josh Richardson again. Richardson drew the start last game and has the ability to pick up some of the scoring slack while Dragic is out.

Always keep an eye on Twitter for the most up-to-date information. Fun slate tonight -- much better than last night for sure. We’ve got some solid value out there, some nice studs to pay up for, and some traps that we know to avoid. All is discussed below...

Indiana Pacers @ Washington Wizards

Vegas: Wizards -4.5, O/U: 213

John Wall - Wall is not my favorite play on the day, but I think he is worth paying up for. His ownership never seems to be too high on these bigger slates and he is consistently putting up around 50 fantasy points. Indiana plays quick and is not as lock down on defense as many assume. This is a solid spot for him.

Markieff Morris - Otto Porter went nuts last game, but he draws Paul George defense here. That means it could be Morris turn to take a few more shots on the offensive end. His price is still very cheap, but he is more of a GPP play due to volatility of returns.

Bradley Beal - I am a big fan of Beal today too. This is a game which should feature a lot of scoring and Beal can definitely score. In fact, he is also pretty cheap, so I think he might be able to get 5X tonight just on points. The drawback is he rarely does anything besides score, so he still might not have a huge game even if he does go 5X on points alone.

On slates like this, it’s a good idea to dial back your amount of money in play, or even take the day off altogether. I mean, I’m not going to or anything… but just saying.

 

Point Guard

Cash: S. Mack, G. Dragic

GPP: R. Westbrook, S. Mack, G. Dragic, M. Conley

Oklahoma City Thunder @ Miami Heat

Vegas: Thunder -3, O/U: 205.5

Thunder: 5th Pace, 9th Scoring, Middle of the pack points allowed

Heat: 24th Pace, 28th Scoring, 7th Points allowed

Russell Westbrook - On a small slate it is tough to fade the likely highest scoring player and it is tough to find enough value guys to make him work to. That creates a tough decision for us today. The decision many will have to make is whether to pay up for Westbrook in this matchup or Harden against Dallas. Neither spot is great, but these two guys can put up points on anybody. I am leaning Westbrook, but would not argue against anyone who went the other way.

It’s interesting the value that has popped up, and it certainly impacts roster construction and turns it into a common build that you’ll see. I love these kind of slates...

Point Guard

Cash: R. Felton, S. Napier, K. Walker

GPP: R. Felton, S. Napier, A. Rivers, P. Beverley, R. Rubio

Milwaukee Bucks @ Washington Wizards

Vegas: Wizards -5, O/U: 213

Bucks: 19th Pace, 15th Scoring, 11th Fewest points allowed

Wizards: 14th Pace, 13th Scoring, 7th Most points allowed

These two played right before Christmas and it was a blowout win by the Bucks. This game switches over to Washington and the entire starting five of the Wizards is discounted from their prices during that last matchup. The Wizards starting five usually plays huge minutes too. Most nights they guys routinely see 35 minutes, but they all played about 25 this last game due to the score. I think all five are cheap now and would not argue with anyone putting them in. I like Wall, Beal, and Gortat for cash with Porter and Markieff as tournament only plays.

Giannis Antetokounmpo - He can fill it up across the board, this game should stay closer than the last, and we have already seen point guards put up big numbers against Washington this year.
