 Saturday DFS Plays
Posted by Thad Houston on Saturday, October 29, 2016 - 14:59

What's up y'all? This is the one and only RadThad with today's NBA article for Saturday, October 29th. As some of you already know, I'm new to the whole written DFS content "thang". Things have gone fairly well as far as NFL content, so I'm giving NBA a try. I haven't quite decided what format to go with, but for now I think I'll give you guys two cash games and one tournament option that I like from each game on the slate. Once we get more games under our belt, I'll start to add statistics such as pace and rebound differential (among others). Constructive criticism is always appreciated, as usual. Let's get to it...

Pricing is pretty close on DK/FD so if I don’t say otherwise just assume the guy I’m recommending applies to both sites. Benny takes a deep look on the slate every day that you can find a little earlier in the day and I’ll usually be doing a show or podcast on the bigger slates (and today).

Kyle Lowry has a nice matchup against weak Kyrie Irving defense. Lowry is a solid defender, so this is a tough matchup for Kyrie. DeMar DeRozan was awesome in the opener and has a softer matchup here himself. JR Smith is a decent defender, but not a lock down guy who would scare me away from DeRozan. DeMarre Carroll is a solid defender, but he will not be able to stop Lebron James. Lebron should definitely be able to lock him down on the other side if that is who he winds up guarding. Kevin Love should be able to have a good game against the crew of power forward bench players the Raptors use with Jared Sullinger hurt. None of them are great bets to attack weak Kevin Love defense on the other end. Jonas Valanciunas is really stepping up to be a third scoring option for this team. He has a solid matchup himself against Tristan Thompson. I would not want more than one guy, maybe two at the absolute most from this game on a cash or tournament roster...

Vegas: Hawks (-3), O/U: 204 The Hawks played at the eighth fastest pace in the league last year, although they seemed to be a slower offense during the preseason. The Wizards were one of the fastest paced teams in the league last season, finishing with the 6th fastest pace of play. That means this is a better spot for the Hawks as they will be the ones playing up in pace and seeing more possessions. The big news here is the health of John Wall. The news is all over the map about how much playing time he will get, but I think it is safe to say he is likely going to have a ceiling of around 30 minutes. That is still a lot, but below his norms. The Hawks were very solid defensively last season, allowing only the 25th most fantasy points to opposing teams. The Wizards were not as good allowing the tenth most points. The pace had something to do with it, but that is not likely to change this year so it carries forward. That means we probably want more exposure to the Atlanta side in this game.

Dallas Mavericks @ Indiana Pacers

Vegas: Pacers (-6.5), O/U: 205

The total in this game is up six points since the line was issued. This points to an interesting fact that we talked about in the preseason. The Indiana Pacers are playing much faster this year with Jeff Teague at the point instead of George Hill. They also added guys like Thad Young in the offseason and now boast a starting five of Teague, Monta Ellis, Paul George, Thad Young, and Myles Turner. All five of those guys can get up and down the floor in a hurry. Dallas was a slower paced team in 2016, which I think will be the case for them again this year with so many aging veterans. Another problem with so many aging veterans is injuries and the Mavericks are already dealing with them. Devin Harris is out and it looks like backup point guard JJ Barea is going to miss the game as well.

Three game slate today, so I’ll provide a little more commentary than usual. Pricing is pretty close on DK/FD so if I don’t say otherwise just assume the guy I’m recommending applies to both sites.
