I’m going to list my favorite plays for today’s slate of games. Things are always subject to change due to players sitting or games even being postponed. Make sure you are paying attention to any and all late-breaking news, and try to use common sense if a point spread moves up or down. The plays I LOVE are my top plays for the slate. At the bottom of the article, I will always post a few plays I like for DFS purposes. Whether you fade or follow, good luck!
Last night was another stinker, terrible beat with West Virginia.
Love Bulls +5.5 Pelicans
Love Nets-Rockets under 228.5
Warriors -1 Trail Blazers
Love Clemson +1.5 Syracuse
Love Northwestern +4 Maryland
Love UConn -1.5 Seton Hall
Creighton +4.5 Villanova
Miss State -5 Texas A&M
I think we have a huge letdown spot for ‘Cuse. Clemson needs a good showing down the stretch, and the Tigers are an incredible defensive team. The wrong team is favored. The Maryland line stinks and I’m going to fade the Terps on the road.
Love Kings-Coyotes over 5.5
Maple Leafs-Oilers over 6.5
DFS today is stars-and-scrubs approach. You can find value with Lakers, Raptors and Rockets. There are lots of players missing. I love Talen Horton-Tucker and Markieff Morris. I prefer DeAndre’ Bembry over Terrence Davis for the Raptors, but both are solid. I love Sterling Brown for the Rockets, and he is blowout proof. He should play the fourth even if game gets out of hand.
Favorite studs: Love Karl-Anthony Towns and a run back with LaMelo Ball.
Dame Lillard and Steph Curry are in great spots as well.
Many will go to Dennis Schroder since LeBron is out — same with Kyle Lowry, Chris Boucher and Norman Powell on the Raptors because of all the players missing. All are good plays, but if you are trying to be different in tournaments, you might want to fade some of them.
Yes, James Harden is in a revenge game, but I am concerned about a possible blowout. His floor is always solid, so he’s a good play, but I am fading.
