Welcome, to the Judge’s Verdict. We have a tricky seven-game NBA slate on Wednesday with Spurs chalk taunting us, so let’s be smart with our bankroll tonight.
Here are some of my top tournament plays for tonight’s slate.
Note: The numbers in parenthesis refer to the salaries of that particular player. The first number is the FanDuel (“FD”) salary, while the second number is the DraftKings (“DK”) salary.
Kemba Walker (9.3, 8.8)
Kemba got off to a blistering start this year, and then he significantly cooled as teams started to gameplan entirely against him (since Charlotte has no one else to score). Kemba also looked disinterested and frustrated at times, and he became a tad passive during games. However, lately, Kemba appears to have made some adjustments – as in February he is averaging 31 points, 5 rebounds, 8 assists, 1 steal, and 5 three-pointers. Yes, this is only a three-game sample size, but it is promising. I am a tad worried about the back to back, and Kemba notoriously is a better player at home – but still, he has massive upside against a fun Dallas team that is morphing into one that doesn’t care much about defense. I think guys like Dunn and Rubio are also interesting tonight – but Dunn has cost me a small fortune this year, so I refuse to write about him again until he finally has that ceiling game we need.
