Sunday's NBA DFS Picks
The NBA Schedule for Sunday, March 11, 2018 features a number of games, but our focus for the NBA Daily Fantasy picks is on for the four night games.
Point Guard – Lakers’ Lonzo Ball (vs. Cleveland, 9PM ET) $7,600
Ball has been logging big minutes lately and he has a very favorable matchup against a poor Cleveland defense. He has put up at least 35 fantasy points in five of his last six games and tonight he should push toward 50. He had a near triple-double of 13 points, 11 assists and 8 rebounds in his other meeting with Cleveland this season.
Shooting Guard – Nets’ Allen Crabbe (vs. Philadelphia, 7:30PM ET) $5,200
Crabbe has seen an increase in scoring over the last few weeks. He has put up double figures in eight of his last 10 games, with five games with at least 20 points. He is coming off a 29-point performance against the Hornets on Thursday night. While he has had some down games as well, his low price gives him a lot of appeal. The 76ers are also a matchup that could give him some more scoring opportunities. I think Crabbe definitely outperforms his value tonight.
Small Forward – Cavs’ LeBron James (at L.A. Lakers, 9PM ET) $11,600
LeBron posted a triple-double of 25 points, 12 rebounds and 12 assists in his first meeting with the Lakers and you know James wants to put on a show in Los Angeles, a place that could become his future home. LeBron is pretty safe for at least 55 fantasy points in any game and he has the potential to push for 70 tonight.
Power Forward – Pacers’ Thaddeus Young (at Boston, 7:30PM ET) $4,900
With James in the lineup, you need to take some chances on some cheap options. Young hasn’t been playing well lately, but he is still logging big minutes. Tonight he has a matchup that has worked out well for him against Boston. In three games vs. Boston, Young is averaging 12.3 points and 9 rebounds per game while playing an average of 33 minutes. I expect Young to continue to log big minutes tonight and find the production that has evaded him over the last week.
Center – Rockets’ Clint Capela (at Dallas, 7PM ET) $6,500
Capela is a center that is averaging a double-double this season at 14.3 points and 11 rebounds per game. In three games with Dallas, Capela is averaging 15 points and 11.3 rebounds per game. He is adding nearly 2 blocks per game as well. I think Capela will keep being productive and pick up another double-double against a weak Dallas frontcourt.
