Tuesday's NBA DFS Predictions
The NBA Schedule for Tuesday, March 6, 2018 features a total of eight games. Which players should you consider picking for your NBA Daily Fantasy lineup tonight?
Point Guard – Rockets’ James Harden (at Oklahoma City, 8PM ET) $11,500
I am starting with the big splash tonight as I expect Harden to continue to play well against his former team. The leader in the MVP race put up 29 points, 14 assists and eight rebounds in the first meeting with OKC this season and I expect more of the same tonight. Harden is always motivated to play well against the Thunder and going into OKC should be an even bigger boost for him, especially with a few days off.
Shooting Guard – Clippers’ Austin Rivers (vs. New Orleans, 10:30PM ET) $5,800
Rivers has put up over 30 fantasy points in his last two outings and now will be in a game against the Pelicans that could see both teams push for over 110 points. Rivers is getting extended minutes lately and that should lead to a big offensive night against New Orleans. He had 19 points with three rounds, two steals and two assists in the first meeting this season. Expect better tonight.
Small Forward – Nets’ Caris Levert (at Golden State, 10:30PM ET) $4,500
A nice option to balance out your lineup with Harden in it is Levert. He has been slowly coming back from injury and put up 27 points on Sunday against the Clippers after playing 29 minutes. He was 5 of 7 from the arc and now has a favorable shooting matchup with the Warriors, a poor defensive team. Levert’s length also gives him the potential to pick up a handful of rebounds, assists and steals. I like Levert to really out perform his salary tonight.
Power Forward – Raptors’ Serge Ibaka (vs. Atlanta, 7PM ET) $5,400
Serge Ibaka is someone that is hard to trust, as he has been very inconsistent this season. However, he is coming off a 17-point, 8-rebound performance against the Hornets and I think tonight’s matchup for Atlanta has the potential for more of the same. The Hawks are one of the worst defensive teams in the league and Ibaka has posted over 34 fantasy points in four of his last six games. If he can stay out of foul trouble, I like Ibaka to produce a good fantasy number.
Center – Knicks’ Enes Kanter (at Portland, 10PM ET) $7,000
This has been a great West Coast road trip for Kanter, who has scored 85 fantasy points combined with games against the Clippers and the Kings. He only played 22 minutes on Sunday, which means he should be rested and ready to log a longer run tonight against the Blazers. Kanter is averaging a double-double on the road this season and I see no reason he can’t continue to put up good numbers in both categories tonight.
