NBA Cash Breakdown 3/12

We have seven games on tonight’s NBA slate and a couple of games stick out from the rest, namely The CHI/LAL and NO/MIL games. The CLE/PHI game is close for me as is the LAC/POR game, but there are a lot of good plays tonight so let’s get into it.

DK Core 4 

Kris Dunn ($5,200) 

Cedi Osman ($5,200)

Nikola Jokic ($10,000) 

Otto Porter ($6,400)

KRIS DUNN is way too cheap. No LaVine and the Lakers just make it really hard to pass up. I get that the minutes have been bad and we don’t truly know what they will be tonight but regardless, it’ really hard to see him completely failing here. CEDI OSMAN is going to play a ton of minutes, his price is more than fair and CLE is playing without Love, Nance and Chriss. Osman should see some time at the four as well tonight. I just can’t imagine not playing NIKOLA JOKIC on DK tonight. He is only 10K. Towns is listed as probable and that is honestly a good thing for Jokic as the game should stay competitive. Towns doesn’t like to play defense either. I have a hard time believing Jokic doesn’t get there tonight. OTTO PORTER, much like Dunn, is just too cheap without LaVine and the Lakers matchup. It really is just as simple as that for me.

FD CORE 4

Kris Dunn ($5,900) 

Cedi Osman ($5,800)

Joel Embiid ($10,300) 

Danilo Gallinari ($7,300)

DUNN and OSMAN see above. JOEL EMBIID is in an excellent spot tonight. No Butler and nobody to defend him on CLE. I am fine with him on DK as well, but he is only $100 more on FD and Jokic is $600 more over here whereas Jokic is $200 cheaper on DK. I don’t think I need to break down Embiid here. Just a great play at a great price. DANILO GALLINARI has been really, really good since the trade of Tobias Harris. He has been over 30 FD points in six straight games and POR is a good matchup on the wing for him. He has been playing high 20s to low 30s minutes and has scored 20+ actual points in five straight.
