We have a big 10 game slate of NBA action tonight. The experts are fairly spread out on who they are recommending with only two Highly Touted picks. There does look like there are a lot of good value options to choose from tonight so you can pay for a couple higher-priced studs if you wish.

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…
