    Why would you take Okafor over Jokic tonight? Jokic is going to man handle Okafor, and the pelicans are on the tail end of a B2B and Okafor, who is notorious for being out of shape, hasn’t seen this many minutes in years

    If you think it’s a huge blowout, t6hen no reason to play Jokic either as he’ll unlikely put up huge numbers in fewer minutes. With Randle and Davis out, unless you think NOP going to run Cheick Diallo 30+ minutes tonight who else is going to play C? He’s essentially playing for his NBA career right now. I will have some exposure until he gives me reason not to.

    Hield or Fox?

    I mean a lot of a centers value is in rebounding…. so if im targeting a center i think will smash the glass that evening it stands to reason that i dont expect the other center to smash the glass…

    also we’re usually looking for centers against relatively weaak frontcourts… so you can see how targeting the other side of that frontcourt usually isnt really a great idea…

    That said i dont think playing both centers is as dumb as like fading Okafor last night or anything..

    So your guy tonight is Deandre Jordan? He should be good for 20 RB’s vs the Knicks. If he could score 16 points he would be a lock but he gets no usage on the offensive end.

    All the love for Jackson but Frazier had 10 assists in just 20 minutes with no Payton again

    I love Jordan tonight but for the same price on Yahoo hard not to look over at Turner.

  • Ronboogie6

    Seems like everyone is on buddy and fox because of their big games in Nov against ATL but is bogdan the play at 5500? I’ll probably have a piece of all 3 but I think bogdan might end up with the most fpts.

  • Bodiaz36

    Anyone going to keep riding the Jabari Parker train until it inevitably crashes and burns?

  • biga0787

    How highly owned will the no stack be though? I agree it could smash. How likely is it that they don’t? B2b where they all played almost 40 minutes except Jackson.

    No way I’m stacking NOP, but no way I’m fading them entirely either.

    Why can’t we have both?

  • zpa1989

    did parker see minutes at the 3 last night?

    i feel like 48 points in 22 minutes is sort of fluky no? i don’t think we should read to much into that. outlier in my eyes.

  • kingmalice9

    I am playing a big stack. Having Fox and young as my guards, Buddy as my SG, and John Collins and bagley as my PFs

    I could be wrong, yet I don’t love WCS tonight. Centers aren’t smashing the Hawks lately. Theyre doing fine, yet not smashing. He’s also not taking any shots and rarely sees over 31 minutes. I’ll have a little because the pace should be frantic, so it could be a nice spot for putbacks, rebounds, blocks, I’m just not enthused about it.

    the “play centers vs Hawks” has honestly been somewhat dead ever since Dedmon came back…. he’s a great defender and rebounder…

    the hawks had like Len and plumlee to start the year because Collins and dedmon were hurt… its skewed the season long data by so much its not even funny

    yeah he’s in my player pool no doubt… may end up my highest owned big….

    but in all honesty there arent many slates where i dont play him…

    center is so freaking loaded tonight though i wont be concentrated on any center in particular

    MESSAGE BOARD ALERT

    CODE RED CODE RED CODE RED

    Go ahead and bet a big one on Celtics -7 and then run back enough to cover it with Celtics Moneyline at -285…… Just do it…. dont ask questions just go forth and prosper…

    Game will be over by the end of hte 1st quarter. Youll regret it if you dont get on this…

    if your not putting your entire net worth on it then dont sell it on the board as a red alert and why do moneyline if your sure of the minus 7

    @Ace15 said...

    I love Gobert and Milsap tonight

    can you please explain wuy on Millsap?

    I reallllllly want to play him too but he realllllllly put up 11 FPS in my lineup the other night and i need you to talk me into him please

  • chronoxiong

    Wouldn’t the Pelicans lose tonight? After they went through a hellacious battle against Houston and won last night. It’s impossible to think they will do it again tonight against the #2 team in the West in the Nuggets. Stranger things have happened but I can’t see how Jrue, Okafor and the G League scrubs can keep it up.

    Why does it matter if NOP wins or loses?

    Because I think it should be like -12.5 and -380…

    Why wouldnt i diversify and play both? If they cover i win huge and if they win but dont cover i break even…

    Point spreads are a lot more volatile than wins/losses in the NBA…. with the fouling and backdoor covers and such….

    If you dont want to bet it dont. Thats fine. It’s a great bet. Best ive seen all season off the top of my head.

    Im not putting my entire net worth on it because its cold as balls outside tonigbht and i dont want to sleep out there.

    I’ve got $200 on the Celtics -7 and I’ve got $530 to win $200 on the Celtics Moneyline (-265)… I got roughly halfway between the -290/+235 because i took the bet with a friend / Hornets fan rather than via online sportsbook.

  • monarch

    I’d think with Okafor the Nuggets will need more out of Plumlee.

    ok good enough..so you are putting your net worth up…i stand by my claim that if its a 3x code red your sure the points are enough without the ML…those that look to good usually are IMO but damn i do have 3 celtics in my fd lineup

    Tbh MT, he’s just too cheap man…@5K against NO off a B2B, plus matchup, he’s been bad, but maybe tonight he turns the corner and we get on the train before everyone else. He has 8X upside lol…There are still good enough punts on FD that even if he fails @5K It won’t crush me.
