Welcome, to the Judge’s Verdict. We have an excellent nine-game NBA slate tonight, so let’s try to take advantage of it. The All-Star break is looming, so we only have four days of basketball this week before a week off.
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.
Colin Sexton (5.4, 4.9)
The Sexton we have seen since the trade deadline is a different and more aggressive player. He’s averaging 19 shots per game in his last three games and 23 actual points. His price rose only a few hundred dollars, and his projected ownership on DK is criminally low. He gets a dream matchup versus the Knicks and DSJ – one of the worst defenders since he came in to the league. Everyone wants exposure to DSJ tonight (me included to a certain extent), however, I am not going to overlook his counterpart in this game, Sexton, who is much cheaper and could match DSJ’s output.
