Game 4 Daily Fantasy Predictions

NBA Daily Fantasy Predictions 6/8/18 Who should you play in Game 4?

The NBA Finals could come to an end tonight. Which players should you include in your NBA Daily Fantasy roster for Game 4 of the series?

In a single game format on DraftKings, players get to selection six options at any position with a $50,000 budget. DraftKings offers a Captain Spot, giving you 1.5x the value for every point scored, but their salary for that slot is also higher. The winning total from Game 3 was 300.63 points.

Warriors’ Kevin Durant, $16,200 (Captain Pick): Curry was a big letdown in Game 3 while Durant had one of the best games of his career. He has been on a tear shooting right now, going 25-of-37 over his last two games. Durant has put up over 50 fantasy points in four straight and is making another case for Finals MVP. Look for him to have another big night.

Cavs’ LeBron James, $16,000: LeBron had a triple-double in Game 3 and put up another 73 fantasy points. He continues to be the best player in the league without a lot of great support. I think James isn’t going to go down without a fight, especially if this is his last game in Cleveland.

Cavs’ Kevin Love, $8,400: Love has actually had a really solid NBA Finals. He has a double-double in every game and scored at least 20 points for the Cavs, which is a huge boost for LeBron. Love should continue to have good numbers on the glass and in scoring with Golden State playing a small lineup most of the time.

Cavs’ J.R. Smith, 3,600: Smith has done pretty well at home in the playoffs and he had 25.5 fantasy points in Game 3. I would expect Smith to have another good showing in this one. He is much more comfortable shooting at home and gets a lot of minutes. His defense could improve, but that doesn’t impact the fantasy output.

Warriors’ JaVale McGee, $2,600: McGee has seen his price go up quite a bit over the last two games. He doesn’t see a ton of time, but he has been impactful when he is on the floor. Cleveland has had problems stopping him, as he has produced 33.75 fantasy points over the last two games. Expect another nice showing from McGee tonight.

Cavs’ Rodney Hood, $2,200: Hood showed what he can do when given some minutes by putting up 15 points and 6 rebounds in Game 3 while logging 26 minutes. Look for Hood to see similar time tonight as his presence lifted Cleveland to a near victory.
