We have an absolutely stacked NBA card for this Wednesday, and it can be hard to sift through a nine game card and find the best plays. Luckily, I’ve done the leg work for you! Of course, you can go super-chalky and play Giannis or Luka, or perhaps even Bradley Beal.
Hell, I’d advise you to use one more of those three players to anchor your NBA lineup today! However, I’m here to find you the best bang for your buck! We’re taking a look at six must-roster players for today’s slate that cost the beginning average of $6,200 or below. These are some of our NBA bets that we recommend the next time you’re wagering at one of the many online betting sites.
Danilo Gallinari ($6,200)
Danilo barely squeezed into this list, but it makes sense to play him. Oklahoma City draws the Pistons tonight who rank 15th in the NBA against small forwards, and Detroit’s defense has been horrendous.
Gallinari averages 31.8 FPPG and 30.7 minutes per game. He’s only dipped below 20 fantasy points once in his last 15 games and is one of the most consistent players on the Thunder team. He certainly isn’t a flashy player, but he shoots 43.9% from the court and 41.1% from three, and that’s worth streaming in my opinion.
Daniel Theis ($5,800)
He is starting to come along, and he may be the missing link in Boston’s offense. Theis has on fire lately, scoring at least 23.3 FPPG in each of the last nine contests. He has essentially played Kanter out of the rotation. He’s drawing right under 30 minutes a game and has scored 10+ points in eight of his last nine, and he added eight points with 15 rebounds in the contest in which he didn’t score more than ten.
Cleveland’s big men are banged up with Drummond out and Thompson questionable, so playing Theis makes a ton of sense.
Davis Bertans ($5,600)
As long as DraftKings keeps gifting me Bertans at this cheap of a price, I am going to continue to roster him. Although his usage rate isn’t quite as high with the return of Hachimura, Wagner and Bryant, he continues to light it up coming in with the second unit.
Davis averages 29.4 minutes a ballgame and 27.6 FPPG. He shoots a nice 43.5% from the floor and 42.6% from three, and he’s also an undervalued defender. The Wizards will need his offensive output against Portland, and I see no reason to lay off of him now.
Juancho Hernangomez ($5,600)
Hernangomez has found a home in Minnesota, and he has been showing out with Karl Anthony-Towns on the bench. Since coming to the Timberwolves via trade, Juancho has played at least 25 minutes in every game. He’s only had less than 20 fantasy points since the trade and has scored double figures in all games but three. He also has three double-doubles over this stretch.
Minnesota draws the Bulls today and they rank 29th in the NBA in defending the power forward position. He should be in a prime position for another nice showing.
Garrett Temple ($4,400)
GT has been one of the more hit-and-miss players on the Nets team, but I feel like he will show out against his former team in the Memphis Grizzlies. When he gets going from the floor, especially from three, Temple can be a very solid option.
This game with Memphis is the back-end of a back-to-back for the Nets, and Garrett is coming off of two consecutive poor shooting efforts, and he is not a guy that typically lets too many of those run together. I expect him to go off and show the Grizzlies what they traded away.
Brandon Knight ($4,500)
Derrick Rose is out for Detroit and Bruce Brown is listed as doubtful. That leaves the bulk of the work at point guard in the hands of Brandon Knight. He isn’t drawing a terrible matchup in Oklahoma City as Chris Paul isn’t quite the defensive player of a few years ago. Knight has seen at least 20 minutes in each of the last four games and scored at least 23.5 fantasy points in each one of those.
He is listed as questionable so be sure to keep an eye on that, but he’s trending towards suiting up and he is a must-roster if he is available.
