CBB Daily Plays: Wednesday, February 17th
With still no NBA, it’s time to try some college basketball. Check out who I like on Wednesday’s games in each price range. It’s good to see some bigger tournament in college basketball this week.
Isaiah Whitehead (Seton Hall): Whitehead is coming off a monster game against Butler in which he had 26 points and dished out 10 assists. He has had at least 27 FD points in his last 8 games. Last time out against Georgetown, he finished with 16 points, 5 rebounds, and 4 assists. He is also good for a couple blocks and steals a game.
Grayson Allen (Duke): This is a great matchup for Allen, this game has the highest total of the night, and the Tar Heels struggle to defend players off the dribble. Allen is coming off a game in which he hit the game winning shot against Virginia. Against a tough defensive Virginia team he had 15 points, 7 rebounds, and 7 assists.
Other I like: Kris Dunn, Buddy Hield, Isaiah Cousins, Quenton DeCosey
George King (Colorado): Even if Josh Scott plays I still like King in this matchup. Over the last two games King is averaging 16 points and 9 rebounds per game. It is always nice to have a player in the last game of the night.
Andrew White (Nebraska): Without Shavon Shields in the lineup, the offense runs through White. Last game he scored 35 points, brought down 4 rebounds, and had 3 steals. Indiana doesn’t scare you defensively.
Other I like: Yogi Ferrell, Josh Hart, Sheldon McClellan, Joel Berry, Marcus Paige
Alonzo Trier (Arizona): Trier is just returning from an injury, so he is still pretty cheap across the sites. Over his last two games he is averaging 16 points a game.
Davon Reed (Miami): Reed is playing his best basketball in February. Over the last three games, Reed is averaging 14 points, 4 rebounds, and 3 assists per game.
Other I like: Robert Johnson, Jordan Woodward, Glynn Watson, Antonio Blakeney
Brice Johnson (North Carolina): This is a great matchup for Johnson. The Tar Heels are one of the best teams in the country at scoring in the paint, while the Blue Devils are one of the worst defending the paint. Without Amile Jefferson the Blue Devils will have no one that can stop Johnson. While I don’t see a 39 point 29 rebound game like he had earlier, he should still put up close to 40-50 FD points.
Moses Kingsley (Arkansas): Kingsley is coming off his best game in a while. Against Ole Miss, he scored 19 points and brought down 13 boards. He has a great matchup today against a very bad Auburn team with no post defense. Auburn has given up at least 70 points in six out of their last seven games.
Other I like: Ben Simmons, Brandon Ingram, Jaron Blossomgame, Ben Bentil
Charles Mitchell (Georgia Tech): Mitchell is coming off back-to-back double-doubles. One of those came against a very tough Clemson team, in that game he brought down 19 boards. Unlike past years this year you play players against the FSU defense. Their interior is very soft; Brice Johnson had his 39 point 23 rebound game against FSU.
Cinmeon Bowers (Auburn): Yes, Auburn is a very bad team, but ever since Kareem Canty got kicked off the team, Bowers has handled even more of the offense. Over his last three games, Bowers is averaging 11 points, 14 rebounds, and 3 assists per game.
Other I like: LJ Peak, Dwayne Bacon, Nikola Jovanovic, Chinanu Onuaku
Justin Jackson (North Carolina): Jackson is a very streaky player and right now he is on a hot streak. Last year he really turned it on at the end of the season and he is doing the same this year. Over his last two games, Jackson is averaging 17 points, 4 rebounds, and 4 assists per game. He has a great matchup tonight; he will be likely guarded by the smaller Grayson Allen.
Obinna Oleka (Arizona State): Oleka has really turned up his play in PAC 12 play for the Sun Devils. Over his last four games Oleka is averaging 11 points and 9 rebounds per game. He is still very underpriced on DK.
Other I like: Tyler Harris, Troy Williams, Obi Enechionyia, Jessie Govan
