Monday's NBA DFS Predictions

NBA DFS Predictions: Will Paul George bounce back on Monday? 2/26/18

There’s a lot of options for NBA Daily Fantasy on Monday, with 10 games on the schedule. Here’s some players to consider for your roster.

Point Guard – Suns’ Elfrid Payton (at New Orleans, 8PM ET) $7,700

Payton continues to thrive in his new offense, putting up 13 points, 11 assists and six rebounds against Portland this past weekend. Tonight he faces a poor New Orleans defense that is going to be playing for the second consecutive night. That should allow the Suns to get out and run the floor. Payton has scored at least 38 fantasy points in four of his last five and I expect another big performance today.

Latest odds for Suns vs. Pelicans

Shooting Guard – Nets’ D’Angelo Russell (vs. Chicago, 7:30PM ET) $6,300

Russell has been riding a good wave of scoring right now, posting at least 16 points in five straight games. He is a cheap option tonight against the Bulls, who are 24th in defense. With Chicago in tank mode and playing younger talent, Russell should be given plenty of chances to make things happen and get this game moving at a fast pace.

Small Forward – Lakers’ Brandon Ingram (at Atlanta, 7:30PM ET) $6,600

Another reasonable salary is Ingram, who has scored at least 30 fantasy points in eight of his last nine games. The return of Lonzo Ball also helps Ingram, who continues to be a focal point in the Los Angeles offense. Along with his steady scoring of 16 points per game, he is good at racking up a handful of rebounds and assists. He also can pick up multiple blocks with his long wing span. Against a poor Atlanta team, I would expect a lot of offense in this game.

Bet on Lakers vs. Hawks

Power Forward – Thunder’s Paul George (vs. Orlando, 8PM ET) $9,000

Coming off a horrible 1-for-14 shooting game at Golden State on Saturday night, I think George bounces back in a big way tonight, making his higher salary worth the play. Prior to his 5-point performance on Saturday, George had scored at least 25 points in seven straight. George is also good for picking up rebounds, assists and steals. I expect a 30-point showing tonight with a fantasy total around 50 points.

Center – Grizzlies’ Marc Gasol (at Boston, 7:30PM ET) $7,100

Gasol is a go tonight despite listed with the questionable label and he has been very steady with his performances. Gasol has scored 30 fantasy points or more in four straight and is logging 30+ minutes per game. Tonight he faces a Boston team that has really struggled to stop big men. With Memphis short handed (Evans out), Gasol should get a lot of scoring opportunities in this game and rack up the fantasy points quickly.
