We have a huge 12 game slate of NBA action tonight. The experts are fairly spread out on who they are recommending on this large slate of games with no player recommend by more than six experts. The highest Vegas totals tonight are in the Mavericks/Pacers, Blazers/Thunder and Suns/Warriors games.

The numbers in the parenthesis are the number of experts that picked that player to give you more context as to the gaps between players and the tiers. Here are the Industry Consensus picks for tonight…

Highly Touted

  • Matt Barnes (6) – Cheaper option who has averaged 14.7 points and 8.7 rebounds over his last 3 games
  • Stephen Curry (6) – High price tag, but back at home in highest Vegas total

Recommended

  • Russell Westbrook (5) – Another big price tag, usually worth the price
  • Jahlil Okafor (5) – Averaging 22.3 points and 9.5 rebounds per game over last 4 games
  • Andre Drummond (5) – Continues to post 15+ rebounding games almost every night
  • Derrick Favors (5) – Solid production at a mid-level price
  • Marc Gasol (5) – Coming off a 24 points and 12 rebounds effort on Monday
  • Nikola Vucevic (5) – Minutes have been down the last 2 games, but should come back up in close game tonight 

Suggested

  • Klay Thompson (4) – Should be well rested from ankle injury in high Vegas total
  • Draymond Green (4) – Back-to-back games with 24 points and 11 rebounds
