NBA DFS Picks: DraftKings & FanDuel Expert Survey for Tuesday, November 21

Which useful trend or statistic stuck out most during your research?

tcsmith031: We don’t think of the Magic as a defensive juggernaut, but Orlando is quietly all the way up to 2nd in defensive efficiency this season after finishing 12th last season.

squirrelpatrol: The clear attention-grabber is the IND/ATL game, 2 of the top 3 teams in pace matching up in a game with a 251.5 (and rising) total. But the Lakers have a 122.5 implied team total, just 1.5 points behind the Pacers. So with LeBron James listed as questionable, it’s worth having a plan to play either LeBron or Anthony Davis and late swap from one to the other using various Utah value pieces.

headChopper: The Pacers and Hawks have a season-high 251 total tonight. There have been 10 games this season with a total that closed over 240 points. Those games averaged 250 points being scored.

Stevietpfl: With Donovan Mitchell off the floor this season, Evan Mobley is averaging 1.44 fantasy points per minute with a 24.1% usage rate and a 24.71% assist rate. Mobley is only averaging 1.15 fantasy points per minute with LeVert and Mitchell off the floor this season. Mobley benefits from Mitchell being out, but needs LeVert on the floor to have a higher ceiling.

TheLuuch: The Pacers have a chance to clinch their tournament group with a victory tonight. If they lose, they could still win the group based on point differential.

Who is your top overall play (when considering price, matchup, roster construction, etc.) on the board and why?
