2/18/2016 NBA Picks of the Day

2/18/2016 NBA Picks of the Day by Jerico Bailleu:

POINT GUARD PICKS

RAUL NETO $6000 - Minimum Salary, still getting minutes.

CHRIS PAUL $14700 - The only position the Spurs struggle with and the Clippers need CP3 to come up big to have a chance of winning the game.

KYRIE IRVING $12600 - Been on fire lately, great matchup vs. Rose.

 

SHOOTING GUARD PICKS

JR SMITH $8400 - Price point is nice here. I'm projecting him to have a good game.

RODNEY HOOD $9100 - Great pace-up matchup vs. Washington plus he's been playing great with the Burk duo out.

E'TWAUN MOORE $6600 - Price is still depressed and he's going to play a lot of minutes. Tough to ignore him with Buckets out.

 

SMALL FORWARD PICKS

LEBRON JAMES $16900 - No surprise here, without Jimmy Butler LeBron should do very well.

GORDON HAYWARD $12200 - Pace-up matchup. Targeting Hayward and Hood seems like a great idea with only 3 games on the night.

KAWHI LEONARD $13200 - Price is high but the break should have done Kawhi some good. Look for him to go off in this matchup against a soft team.

 

POWER FORWARD PICKS

TRISTAN THOMPSON $7700 - If there were ever a matchup to target the inconsistent TT this is it. I love him here.

KEVIN LOVE $12800 - Obviously all the Cavs are in play here. The Bulls are a mess. I expect a blowout but the short slate doesn't give you much choice.

DERRICK FAVORS $11700 - Price is still too low and the Wiz aren't going to be able to slow him down at the PF position.

 

CENTER PICKS

DEANDRE JORDAN $13000 - Not much choice here. If the Clippers keep it close it's because DJ and CP3 go off.

RUDY GOBERT $11600 - Gortat is good, but Gobert should have plenty of opportunities for peripheral stats.
