Elite Eight – NBA DFS February 10th
February 10, 2018 | phil_beneteau89
In this segment, I will share my top four plays of the night; one center, one guard, one forward, one wildcard play. I will also share my top four value plays of the night; one center, one guard, one forward, and one wildcard play. I will also have the Vegas posted lines which will help you make sharper calls when looking at a high over/under as well as the spreads to gauge which games could end up in a blowout.
(All Vegas lines are taken off Bodog betting)
(Teams in RED are on the back end of a back-to-back)

DEN (-7) at PHO – O/U – 220
Top Guards: Eric Bledsoe and D.J. Augustin
They will face off against each other tonight in Orlando, and I really like stacking the two of them together tonight for a strong correlation play. Bledsoe has been on fire recently scoring over 40 DK points in three straight. The matchup against the Magic is one of the best in the league. Augustine looks to have slid in to the starting five for the Magic with Elfrid Payton traded. He was able to score 40.25 DK points in his first start, and while his price did come up, he is still sub $5K. Keep playing him until his price is in the mid $6K range.
Top Forwards: Dario Saric and Denzel Valentine
I believe that Joel Embiid will sit tonight after playing last night, and who was questionable coming into the game. If he does play, I would lower my expectations for Saric, but at this point, if Embiid is out, look for Saric to crush his value. Saric has seen a nice boost with Embiid off the court this year and he should see a few more rebounds in the process. With Zach LaVine being ruled out for tonight’s game, I will be looking at some Bulls guards tonight. Valentine has shown a nice ceiling this season, and he should be one of the main beneficiaries with LaVine out. Jerian Grant also makes for a strong play as his shot seems to be on lately.
Top Centers: Nikola Jokic and Julius Randle
Jokic is in a smash spot tonight against the Suns, who are even missing their starting center Tyson Chandler. Jokic is still very reasonable on DraftKings, where he should be able to hit a ceiling game and go for over 50 tonight. Randle had a mediocre start to like without Larry Nance last game, but I expect him to come out of it tonight against the Mavericks. Randle should continue to see big minutes and he looks like a real star on the court. He is a little more volatile than I like for my one center spot on FanDuel, so I would suggest paying up for Jokic if you can make it work. I do not see myself paying up for too many high priced players tonight.
Value Play: Dwight Powell
His price is very much on the rise lately, but he is still a great value across the industry. His price on DraftKings is almost robbery against this Lakers team. I could see a fade of him on FanDuel, but I still like him going for over 30 points tonight.
