CBB Tonight 1-14-2015

Good evening all, tonight we have a full slate on CBB Fanduel, and I’ve decided to blog as I think there are some great plays that might get overlooked. And I will help you get to the cash. So let’s get started. All key players are expected to get at least 4x value. I have found that this 4x in CBB is the number that will lead to wins. These picks should work in both gpp/cash games, as the lineup generation is meant to minimize variance and maximize score with only 1 punt in Josh Brown.

Key players:

Kadeem Jack, Rutgers:

My favorite play on the board. At 6800, against a pretty non existent Maryland interior, I am looking at Jack getting back on track in a big way. Egwu for Illinois even dropped over the 27.2 that would make value here, and I see absolutely no reason for Jack not to dominate here.

Jarell Martin, LSU:

At 7700, you are going to need 30.8 to get to value here, which might seem difficult since it appears Mickey is starting to take over the rebounding/touches that were more evenly split earlier in the year, now that conference play has started. I don’t see this trend lasting, and I think they are more even tonight, making the 1800 save, while taking on a vulnerable front court very important to the rest of your lineup.

Tony Parker, UCLA:

I love UCLA guys in this cross town matchup. Parker at 6300 against this frontcourt, with Looney drawing up a ton of defensive attention, with his talent level seems like a great play not many will see.

Charles Mitchell, Georgia Tech:

No Auguste, no front court depth, no reason not to roll on the 6700 Mitchell tonight as the Jackets best front court option against ND.

David Kravish, Cal/Stefan Nastic, Stanford:

UCLA had their 2 big men drop a combined 93 dfs points 2 games ago against Stanford. Cal has struggled to defend the post all year. I slightly prefer Kravish, but both should be able to reach 30 points exploiting the others weakness and their team propensity for not hitting shots.

Marcus Paige, UNC:

Starting to pick it up. Not the greatest matchup but his 6800 price point is so below talent level, especially since he has begun to show life, that I love him as a flyer vs. an NC State team bound for a letdown.

Pat Connaughton, ND:

Look for ND to pick up the pace a bit with no real big options, which should help Pat both get a few extra shots and also add to his rebounding totals, which are great for a guard. I see the 32 for over 4x value almost his floor for tonight.

Bryant McIntosh, NW:

McIntosh has averaged 17 ppg in the last 5 and only needs 22.8 dfs points to make value. Illinois has struggled with turnovers and defense at times. He should make value easy.

Josh Brown, Temple:

If he start for Cummings, 4800 will be a steal. Even if not, he should see a bump in playing time and I see 18-20 points to be easily attainable and fits perfectly with the above.

There are definitely a few studs I love tonight, Looney, Henton, and Mickey top the forward list with Wallace and Pointer topping the guard list. I see a dearth of sub 5000 talent to sustain these guys, and the lineup I mention above should mitigate any huge games by these 5 and allow for a larger point total. Keying any combination of these 9 will give you significant lineup flexibility to plug in a guy or 2 who you might feel are interchangeable as well. Best of luck.
