Best NBA DFS Picks for November 4th, 2017
Jamal Murray vs GSW (DraftKings 5.4k, FanDuel 5.4k)
The Denver Nuggets and the Golden State Warriors are teams that can put up points in a hurry. The Warriors lead the league in points per game at 120 a contest. The Nuggets are 11th in the league at 107 a game. Murray has been great so far season and he’s scored over 20 points in three out of the past four games. The Canadian product is getting around nine points a game with two assists. He’s averaging just over 17 FPPG for DraftKings and FanDuel.
Klay Thompson at DEN (7k DraftKings, 6.9k FanDuel)
With Steph Curry banged up, Thompson could be the perfect choice for your lineup. With the Warriors scoring 120 points per game, Klay could be in store for a big night. He’s averaging 21.4 points a game and is grabbing four boards a contest. The Washington State product has notched 25 or more FPPG in FanDuel and DraftKings. The other half of the Splash Bro team shoots seven three games and is an amazing 46% from three this season.
Jimmy Butler vs DAL (7.5k DraftKings, 8.3k FanDuel)
The Minnesota Timberwolves are eighth in the league in scoring and Butler is a major weapon for them. Jimmy Buckets is averaging 17.3 buckets a game while grabbing 5.2 rebounds. Bench boss Tom Thibodeau isn’t afraid to run his shooting guard into the ground. Butler is leading the team in minutes played at 37.4. Butlers FPPG hasn’t dropped below 30 in the past five games.
Others to consider: Jrue Holiday, Dennis Smith Jr, Will Barton, Wes Matthews
Anthony Davis @ CHI (11.2k DraftKings, 11.8k FanDuel)
The Brow is always the number one or two target and his usage rate with the Pelicans. He is second on the team in usage at 29.2% right behind DeMarcus Cousins. The Bulls have been hit by the injury and suspension bug with Portis and Mirotic out. The Pelicans should be able to take full advantage. Davis is averaging just over 27 a game while ripping down 12 rebounds. Boogie Cousins is banged up so Davis and your lineup could reap the rewards.
Tobias Harris vs SAC (6.4k DraftKings, 6.7k FanDuel)
Harris has been a stalwart for the Pistons and is a major reason why their record is 6-3. He is averaging just over 20 points while grabbing three rebounds a game. He isn’t afraid to shoot the three ball, averaging just over six a game. His ability to stretch the floor is a reason you should have him in your lineup. He can light it up any game and has had 41, 47 and 49.5 FPPG type games. He leads the team in scoring and is fourth in usage rate at 24.2 a game.
Draymond Green at DEN (7.2k DraftKings, 7.6k FanDuel)
Anytime Green is on the court you are almost expecting a triple-double. The arguably most important player for Dub Nation is always a must in your lineup. The reigning Defensive Player of The Year is averaging 9.1 points, 6.7 assists, and 7.2 rebounds. He is the definition of a do it all player. With all the focus on Curry, Durant and Thompson; Green gets open looks behind the arc. The former Spartan is getting around three looks a game from three-point land. He has only dipped below 25 FPPG twice this season.
Others to Consider: Kevin Durant, Harrison Barnes, Taj Gibson, Kenneth Faried
Andre Drummond vs SAC (8.1k DraftKings, 9.4k FanDuel)
Detroit’s force in the middle has started off the year strong averaging a double-double (12.5pts, 14.1 rbs). He is good for at least one block a game. This year Drummond is punishing teams for fouling him. He’s improved his charity stripe percentage 38% last year to 70% this year. The Kings don’t have a ton of bigs so the Pistons could be feeding the former Uconn Huskie a ton in this Saturday Night matchup.
Nikola Jokic vs GSW (8.5k DraftKings, 9.5k FanDuel)
The Joker is one of the most dynamic and interesting players the NBA has to offer. He has been dominant so far this season averaging 16 points, 11.8 rebounds and five assists. He isn’t afraid to shoot the trey ball either. He is averaging just under two deep balls a game and is shooting a ridiculous 46%. He is second in minutes for the Nuggets and is their leading scorer. Jokic has been a fantasy monster the past few games, averaging at-least 40 FPPG.
Others to Consider: Robin Lopez, DeMarcus Cousins, Paul Millsap
