2/9/2016 NBA Picks of the Day by Jerico Bailleu:
POINT GUARD PICKS
STEPHEN CURRY $17400 - While John Wall is a nice pick, I think I'd rather pay up for Steph here. If it's a blowout he will get his points.
JOHN WALL $15900 - If you can't fit Curry, I'm ok with Wall -- he should also reach value.
RAUL NETO $6000 - With Burks and Burke out, Neto is playing heavy minutes. Mavs bad vs PG and minimum Salary should get 20fp.
SHOOTING GUARD PICKS
KHRIS MIDDLETON $10300 - Middleton has struggled mightily lately, and I think his length will give him a nice game here. I feel confident rostering him.
RODNEY HOOD $8700 - With Burks & Burke being out, Hood has seen an increase in minutes. Wes isn't the same defender he used to be; I like him a lot tonight.
KLAY THOMPSON $12800 - Klay went for almost 50 last time out vs. Houston. His price is VERY steep. Great GPP option, iffy in cash games for me.
JAMES HARDEN $17700 - Fading Harden can backfire sometimes, but he is averaging under 40fp vs. Golden State in 2 games this season.
SMALL FORWARD PICKS
DRAYMOND GREEN $14700 - This season he averages 43fp per game vs. Houston in 2 contests. I like him tonight at this price tag.
CARMELO ANTHONY $14300 - New coach should bring some life to Melo and Porzingis tonight. I think they play well.
JABARI PARKER $7200 - Parker has really struggled the last few games, but I expect him to bounce back nicely.
POWER FORWARD PICKS
GREG MONROE $12600 - Power Forward is a disaster tonight; Monroe has broke 40fp each game vs Boston this season. Love him tonight.
DAVID WEST $6300 - West is going to be under-owned tonight, should be a solid bet for 20 plus fantasy points.
DERRICK FAVORS $12100 - Favors has a great matchup vs. Dirk I expect him to approach value.
DWIGHT HOWARD $11600 - This price tag is just simply too low for him. He posted a 50 burger last time out vs. GSW.
KRISTAPS PORZINGIS $10300 - THE MANTIS!!!! I gave him that nickname. Looks just like a Praying Mantis. I think he goes nuts tonight.
ROBIN LOPEZ $8400 - Solid bet for value tonight, they'll need him vs. Gortat.
MARCIN GORTAT $10900 - Another solid option tonight.
ANDREW BOGUT $7700- Dwight is going to eat him alive, nonetheless they'll need his minutes. Should hit value.
