Thursday's NBA DFS Predictions
The NBA schedule for Thursday, April 5, 2018 features just six games. Here’s our suggested NBA Daily Fantasy plays for the night’s action.
*Be sure to check your lineup before the start of the 7PM ET games. There have been some guys pulled due to rest lately that we can’t plan for.
Point Guard – Nuggets’ Jamal Murray (vs. Minnesota, 10:30PM ET) $6,300
Murray has scored at least 30 fantasy points in his last three games and he has managed to put up really good numbers against the Timberwolves this season. In two games against Minnesota, Murray is averaging 35.5 points, 5.5 assists and 5.5 rebounds. Jump on him with a low price today.
Shooting Guard – Blazers’ CJ McCollum (at Houston, 8PM ET) $7,500
Damian Lillard is out for the Blazers tonight due to an ankle injury, which means Portland will need more from McCollum. When Lillard sat out against the Grizzlies last week, McCollum put up 55.75 fantasy points. Tonight against the Rockets, points can pile up quickly, so Portland will need a big game from their shooting guard.
Small Forward – Bucks’ Jabari Parker (vs. Brooklyn, 8PM ET) $4,900
Parker has gotten over 30 minutes in his last two games and he exploded for 58 fantasy points in one of those two outings. Tonight he should continue to get plenty of minutes against a bad Brooklyn team. You don’t have to worry about him being pulled since he is a bench guy. If anything, it means more minutes. If he attacks the glass, Parker has double-double ability.
Power Forward – Cavs’ Kevin Love (vs. Washington, 8PM ET) $7,600
When Love logs good minutes, he has been very productive. His last three games with at least 30 minutes have seen him produce a double-double. Tonight he faces a Washington team that can go small in the front court, which leaves the door open for him to get some increased scoring and continue to be a top rebounding option for Cleveland.
Center – Bucks’ John Henson (vs. Brooklyn, 8PM ET) $5,000
Henson has a cheap price and a matchup that has worked out well for him. In two games against the Nets this season, Henson is averaging 15.5 points, 14 rebounds, 4 assists and 1.5 blocks per game. I like him to have another strong outing against the Nets, who have nothing to play for.
