There are 8 games on the FanDuel main slate tonight but only four of the games have been assigned a line as of this writing. That is not entirely unusual since this is the time of the year when there is so much news about injuries and players sitting. Vegas tends to wait longer to set the lines for the games. Of the four, the Cleveland-Charlotte game has the highest projected total at 229.5.
As far as salaries go, Lebron James is the king of the night with his $12,500 price tag. He is nearly 2k more than the second highest priced player, Karl-Anthony Towns. You will need to decide if you will be forcing this exorbitant salary into your lineups. He burned a lot of people last night but had also won them a lot of money in the previous couple of weeks as he dominated the NBA and DFS. Whether you play Lebron or not, there is plenty of star power on this slate as 11 players are priced at $8,500 or above.
If you want to play any of these studs tonight then you’ll need to find some salary relief to fit them into your roster. This is the time of the year when plenty of value tends to open up. The only question is who will that be and when will you know who to play. Sometimes the news comes later in the day as to which players will sit and which bench players will get their chance to shine.
Normally, I only give nine value plays, but the Point Guard position could be very interesting tonight so you get a bonus. Here are 10 value plays that are worth considering as you set your lineup for tonight’s slate of games. Remember to check the news and injury reports, especially in the 30 minutes prior to lock. Use all the information available to you to make the best decision possible for your lineup. Good luck and have fun!
