2/8/2016 NBA Picks of the Day by Jerico Bailleu:
POINT GUARD PICKS
JRUE HOLIDAY $9600 - Tyreke out through the All-Star Break, only needs 30fp for value here. Don't see any reason why he wouldn't hit it.
NORRIS COLE $7900 - Cole had a dud a few games back which worries me, but Minnesota is an easy matchup don't see Cole having any issues here.
ZACH LAVINE $8000 - Has been playing better as of late, only needs 24 for value he's a solid option tonight.
KYLE LOWRY $13800 - Lowry draws a more favorable matchup than DeRozan so I expect him to have a nice game.
CHRIS PAUL $14900 - This is a high price tag for him, if Ish plays I think the game stays close and I can get behind Paul. If Ish sits I fear a blowout.
JORDAN CLARKSON $8700 - Very sneaky value play in cash games tonight as he's reached value in 6 of his last 7 games and draws a decent matchup.
EMMANUAL MUDIAY $9300 - Going to be a very chalky play tonight as he should be; has been trending upward lately and draws the best matchup tonight.
KEMBA WALKER $12500 - Kemba is a real nice play here vs Chicago only needs 37fp for value and has had 40 in his last two.
KYRIE IRVING $12400 - He's a nice play here, I just think his price is a little too high for his upside right now. Prefer LeBron with Love being back.
RUSSELL WESTBROOK $19000 - Insane price tag, would need 57fp to reach value, the funny part is I like him to get there. If you can fit him, go for it.
DERRICK ROSE $11100 - Been on fire with Jimmy out, enough said.
GEORGE HILL $10300 - This is a hefty price tag for Hill, but the matchup is insanely good.
SHOOTING GUARD PICKS
ARCHIE GOODWIN $7200 - Fast paced game should suit Archie well, look for him to exceed value here.
KENT BAZEMORE $7900 - Been a sleeper pick for me the last week, nothing changing now. Solid.
E'TWAUN MOORE $6000 - Lock
DEVIN BOOKER $8400 - Fading Devin at this price doesn't seem wise; has reached value basically every game.
JR SMITH $8500 - Hard to call anyone a sleeper vs Sac, but I guarantee he's under-owned; think he has a great game.
MONTA ELLIS $10600 - Monta hasn't been playing well lately and he's more of a GPP option, but likely my favorite GPP guy tonight.
WILL BARTON $9500 - This game has Will Barton written all over it.
VICTOR OLADIPO $11000 - Not my favorite option tonight, but he can definitely get value.
SMALL FORWARD PICKS
PJ TUCKER $7200 - Boom or Bust is the definition of PJ. Last time out against OKC he had 42 fp, so I like him here. Especially in GPP.
STANLEY JOHNSON $9000 - His price has quickly caught up to his production, still love him tonight.
NICOLAS BATUM $11800 - Definitely a steep asking price for Batum but he's been hot, I think it continues.
DANILO GALLINARI $11000 - I love this price point and this matchup, I think I'll be rostering Gallo.
LEBRON JAMES $17000 - Price has gone up, might have priced him out of my comfort zone honestly, but still a solid play.
PAUL GEORGE $14700 - No way I pay up for this guy, but projections and "experts" seem to love him. At your own risk.
POWER FORWARD PICKS
BOBBY PORTIS $6000 - I can get behind this play at min salary, with Pau playing hurt, he's reached value in 2 straight.
TRISTAN THOMPSON $7600 - Boogie likes to turn the ball over, and Tristan likes to play defense. This is one of the few times I trust TT.
THADDEUS YOUNG $11400 - Cake matchup for Thad; he's gonna turn out the lights and eat.
PAUL MILLSAP $12500 - Great price point for Paul, should reach value.
AARON GORDON $8600 - I won't fade Aaron.
MARKIEFF MORRIS $10100 - Matchup is not good, but he just put up a 40 spot on Utah; solid play.
NERLENS NOEL $10600 - At this price Noel is REALLY nice tonight.
PAU GASOL $14200 - Solid play should see 40fp.
ANTHONY DAVIS $16900 - Think I would rather go LeBron here, but still could always go off for 70.
TAJ GIBSON $8600 - Fading Taj at this price isn't recommended.
WILLEY CAULEY-STEIN $6500 - I think he's solid for 20 plus, nice sleeper.
MYLES TURNER $9100 - I don't see him slowing down in this matchup; solid bet for value.
CODY ZELLER $7400 - Nice price point, nice production and a great matchup.
GORGUI DIENG $10500 - Fading him at this price point isn't something I advise, he has been on a tear.
DEANDRE JORDAN $13200 - He should be underowned with all the options tonight and I can see him getting 45-50.
BROOK LOPEZ $13300 - Love him.
KARL ANTHONY-TOWNS - LOCK
NIKOLA JOKIC - Trending downward the last couple games due to foul trouble, he could get fouls again.
