We have an eight-game NBA DFS slate on SuperDraft Monday. Below, we’ll dive in and break down our three top plays of the slate.
Stephen Curry, PG, Golden State Warriors (1.05x score multiplier)
Stephen Curry seems to be getting back into a groove, as the Golden State Warriors have now won five straight. Curry has been close to securing a double-double three times now but has missed it by one or two rebounds/assists. He gets a great matchup versus the Houston Rockets, who struggle against guards. They are allowing the position to average 23.5 points, 7.6 assists and 6.6 rebounds per game. On top of that, using the FTN Daily DvP tool, Curry will see a boost as a scorer and primary ball-handler versus the Rockets, nearing close to 45.3 projected fantasy points.
Julius Randle, PF, New York Knicks (1.25x)
The New York Knicks get to host the Sacramento Kings in a great matchup. Julius Randle will benefit, as the Kings are horrible against power forwards. They currently give up 23.2 points, 10.8 rebounds and 3.7 assists per game to the position. That’ll give Randle a chance at a double-double bonus. He is coming off of a missed double-double with nine points and 11 rebounds versus Milwaukee on Friday. With a weekend break and fresh legs, this is a perfect spot for him. New York also gets the chance to play at a faster pace, as the Kings are currently averaging 102 possessions per game. Playing quicker and faster will give Randle more opportunities to dominate the boards and scoreboard.
Jarrett Allen, C, Cleveland Cavaliers (1.25x)
The last time we wanted to play Jarrett Allen, he was ruled out with an illness. Since then, he has put up a double-double and barely missed out on another one yesterday. Allen is averaging a double-double on the season with 16.1 points and 10.9 rebounds per game in 32.8 minutes. Even though he doesn’t see a huge boost, using the FTN Daily DvP tool, the New Orleans Pelicans are not great at defending centers. They are currently allowing the position to average 23.9 points, 14.2 rebounds and 4.3 assists per game. That should put Jarrett Allen in double-double territory for tonight’s game.
