CBB DFS Slate Breakdown: Final Four, April 3rd

The final four seems crazy, but it really is not. Looking at the bracket at the beginning of the tournament I thought penciling in Gonzaga and Baylor and then picking your upsets from the other two regions was the way to go. I thought nearly anyone could come out of the Michigan region and that Illinois was the favorite in their region, but it would not have surprised me to see Oklahoma State, Houston, WVU or Loyola come out of that one.

Gonzaga and Baylor are the favorites here, but would it surprise anyone to see UCLA or Houston win their games? I do not think so. Just like the last two 2-game slates, we have a game that is significantly better to target in the UCLA/Gonzaga game and the other game in Baylor/Houston is going to take the backseat. Let’s get into it.

Baylor (72), Tempo: 65

Baylor is in an interesting spot here as they are against the best defense and slowest tempo team on the slate. DraftKings has also priced them down a lot, and we would have sold out to play Jared Butler ($7,000) and Davion Mitchell ($6,400) at these prices earlier in the year. Only Butler projects great here and at 7k he seems like a guy that I am going to be including in almost all of my builds. Even if he is not scoring, he seems to be able to find his way to good fantasy totals despite some average peripheral rates. If he is scoring, he is breaking the slate. Mitchell continues to have one of the highest floors of anyone on the slate – this price feels like a steal for him, and I would be surprised if he was not 50% owned.
