Our experts share 3 free daily NBA plays for FanDuel & DraftKings DFS contests (March 13, 2019).
Stacking the Warriors
The Warriors / Rockets game is a great one for exposure tonight, sitting at the highest game total on the slate. With Kevin Durant’s injury and projected absence, things are certainly going to open up for others to contribute in a big way.
Check out the usage boosts and overall numbers with Durant off the floor this year:
So, the “big three” for the game tonight are immediate thrust into elite spots from a DFS perspective.
Klay is someone that I would happily recommend on both sites with not only how well he’s played lately – but with a team-best usage boost (almost double digit points) with Durant out, he’s in line for a massive workload in terms of shot volume. Especially with Chris Paul bodying up against Curry that could make his life a little more difficult. The drive and kick to Klay in the corner on the long wing could be there all day long.
Curry is a very good relative value on FanDuel given he is $100 less on FanDuel vs DraftKings. With his team-high usage rate in the split, we can expect a pretty significant performance from their franchise guard.
Lastly we have Cousins, who has great usage numbers but is still playing only about 28-32 minutes a night. Not a bad thing whatsoever for the dollar (both sites) given his elite efficiency and ability to contribute on the stat sheet in so many ways. Capela may appear to be a tough draw on paper, but Boogie has scored 46.5+ DKP in each of his last 5 games vs HOU and 53+ DKP in 4 of those 5. A big night is certainly in the cards.
Beyond the most obvious usage names, we should give some love to Kevon Looney near site minimum(s) across the industry and Andre Iguodala who should also get some extra run. I have no issue seeing you go with full GSW stacks including some of those guys to help balance out the salaries given how great the game will be for pace and starters minutes (tight -2 spread for HOU at home).
Best of luck out there!
