NBA DFS Picks: Nov 2 (DraftKings FanDuel)
We have a solid seven game slate tonight featuring five games with a total in the 223 point range with the largest spread of all the games at 4.5 points. No new injury news at this point but Embiid and KAT will be serving game one of their suspension’s. So, we have highly scoring, highly competitive games with decent value. Let’s get to it – here are our NBA DFS Picks for November 2.
– Draymond is OUT. Big boosts to pretty much everybody, mostly frontcourt (obviously), notably WCS, RobinsonIII and Paschall. Hornets should also get a boost. Still liking Poole
– Whiteside is OUT. Lock in Skal Labissiere into all your lineups.
– Rose and Frazier are OUT – Bruce Brown or Langston Galloway will assume ball handling duties.
THE STARTING FIVE
Bradley Beal – WAS v min (FD$9,900|DK$9,700)
I’m going a little against my projections but I like this spot for Beal. Not only is it projected to be a close and relativity high scoring game but Wiggins is in the bottom third for defensive efficiency in the league. People will see Minnesota is top eight against SG in DraftKings and they will see Kyrie $400 cheaper and go there. Kyrie is on a back-to-back and Beal’s early schedule wasn’t easy and they played on the road for their first 3 game. I’m taking a shot that Beal will have a big game at home.
Devin Booker – PHO @ mem (FD$8,700|DK$8,300)
Probably my top play of the night. In what should be another close game we will have Booker against the Grizzlies who are second in the league in pace and are near the bottom in defence against SG. He’s went for over 42FPoints this year against the Kings, Clippers and Warriors and I’m comfortable saying that putting up another 49FPoints night (like he did against the Clip’s) isn’t a crazy thought. I like the matchup and it fits my lineup construction.
Thomas Bryant – WAS v min (FD$7,700|DK$7,200)
I’m a big fan of this matchup. The Wolves won’t have KAT so Bryant is going to destroy Vonleh and whoever else they put against him. Bryant is averaging 38FPPG but he’s dropped 46 and 50 already this year. Just like in the Beal section, this game will be close and Bryant will playing minutes into the 30’s so the matchup is favorable. 6x is only 43 FPoints and he shouldn’t have a problem getting that. Are we crazy playing two Wizards??
Andrew Wiggins – MIN @ was (FD$6,600|DK$7,100)
On the flip side of the game we’ve talked about a lot we have Andrew Wiggins, who actually is less productive with KAT off the floor whereas Convington see’s large boosts. However, Wiggins is a scorer and there is a lot usage and peripherals to distribute. I don’t think Wiggins will 7x his salary but 6x is doable. Who really knows what to expect without KAT and playing the Wizards but I’ll take my chances on the person who’s second on the team in scoring. I don’t blame you if you want to go with Tobias Harris but I think Wiggins has a easier path to 6x that he does.
Al Horford – PHI @ por (FD$6,900|DK$7,000)
This is an easy pick. When Embiid is out Horford plays Center and dominates. Whiteside doesn’t like to play defence which opens Horford up for a juicy 6x night like that last time Embiid missed. Don’t over think this one, the price is right and the matchup is good. Plug him in.
