Monday's NBA DFS Predictions

NBA Daily Fantasy Predictions 5/21/18 Who should you play on Monday?

The Eastern Conference Finals continue on Monday night for Game 4 of the series. Here’s our Daily Fantasy Predictions for tonight’s game between the Cavs and the Celtics.

In a single game format on DraftKings, players get to selection six options at any position with a $50,000 budget. The winning total from Game 3 was around 186, as the Cavs dominated the Celtics. Here’s the guys we like for tonight’s contest.

Cavs’ LeBron James, $19,700: In another game that feels like a must-win for the Cavs, you have to expect more big numbers from LeBron. He had 78.5 fantasy points in Game 2 and 60.75 in Game 3. Look for more of the same tonight as he tries to even things up.

Cavs’ Kevin Love, $12,800: Love has had pretty good showing this series and has had double-doubles the last two games. Love needs to continue to play well on the glass if the Cavs are going to even this series.

Cavs’ Tristan Thompson, $5,600: Thompson continues to get good minutes in this series and is contributing respectable fantasy points. He has pushed for a double-double in each game of this series, as Boston struggles to defend centers effectively.

Celtics’ Aron Baynes, $5,100: Baynes has been steady for the Celtics and gets good minutes as he deals with Thompson and Love. He has scored at least 20 fantasy points in three of the last four games for Boston.

Cavs’ Larry Nance Jr., $4,400: Nance played 21 minutes in Game 3 to score 25 fantasy points. He saw some extended minutes due to the fourth-quarter blowout, but also saw some time early in the game. Given his low price, Nance has a chance to produce a good number again.

Cavs’ Jordan Clarkson, $2,300: Clarkson has been getting some nice minutes as well, but hasn’t been shooting incredibly well in this series. If Clarkson is able to get a few shots to land early, it could lead to some really good fantasy production.
