Sunday's NBA DFS Predictions
The NBA Playoffs continue on Sunday with four games on the schedule. Here’s some Daily Fantasy Predictions for the slate of games taking place.
Point Guard – Thunder’s Russell Westbrook (vs. Utah, 6:30PM ET) $11,200
With it being playoff time, Westbrook should be even more energized for the Thunder. He ended the season with massive numbers in rebounds and assists and I think that will continue, but he will also be looking to score against this respectable Utah defense. He averaged 57.9 fantasy points against the Jazz this season. I expect better today.
Shooting Guard – Celtics’ Jaylen Brown (vs. Milwaukee, 1PM ET) $5,600
With all the injuries to the Celtics, Brown continues to be someone cheap that gets minutes and has the ability to produce. He averaged over 27 fantasy points against the Bucks this season and there’s no reason he shouldn’t get to that, or better, this afternoon.
Small Forward – Jabari Parker (at Boston, 1PM ET) $5,500
Parker started to become a regular part of the rotation toward the end of the season after dealing with an injury. He put up 29.75 fantasy points or more in his last four games. The Bucks will need more of that production today. I like him as a cheap options.
Power Forward – Cavs’ Kevin Love (vs. Indiana, 3:30PM ET) $7,600
Love has a favorable matchup against the Pacers, who aren’t very strong in the frontcourt. With the playoffs here, the Cavs and LeBron will need Love more than ever to navigate through the East. He averaged 16 points and 11 rebounds per game against Indiana this season.
Center – Celtics’ Greg Monroe (vs. Milwaukee, 1PM ET) $4,900
Monroe isn’t logging the most minutes, but he is being very productive when he is on the floor. He will be needed in the playoffs due to the lack of productive bigs for the Celtics. Getting around 20 minutes, Monroe is contending for double-doubles most nights.
