We have a mini 4-game slate of NBA action tonight. With limited options to choose from on a small slate of games, the experts are all loading up on the same group of about 20 players to choose from for tonight. All four games have a Vegas total over 200 with no favorite of fewer than six points. The top DFS plays tonight will likely follow the game or games that stay close so the starters can get their normal minutes.

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

  • Jimmy Butler (7) – Coming off a 40-point 2nd half in his last game
  • DeMarcus Cousins (7) – Had 33 points and 19 rebounds last night
  • Pau Gasol (7) – Usually destroys the Bucks, averaged 24.3 points and 13.3 rebounds per game in 4 matchups with Bucks last season
  • Paul Millsap (7) – Consistent stat-stuffer every night in every category
  • Draymond Green (7) – Has 3 straight triple-doubles, can he make it 4? Only thing stopping him is a potential blowout win tonight against the Lakers limiting his minutes
  • Kent Bazemore (7) – Averaging 22 points over his last 2 games


  • Rajon Rondo (6) – Rondo looks unlikely to play tonight with a back injury, pivot to Darren Collison
  • Klay Thompson (5) – He is locked in right now averaging 31.3 points over his last 3 games
  • JJ Barea (5) – Cheaper option who should see an increase in minutes if Deron Williams is out tonight
  • Wesley Matthews (5) – Solid production at a reasonable price tag
  • Chandler Parsons (5) – Production has been down recently only averaging 5.0 points over his last 3 games but has a favorable matchup against the Kings tonight
  • Michael Carter-Williams (5) – Should play heavy minutes with Jerryd Bayless out 


  • Robin Lopez (4) – Cheaper option at center, coming off a game with 16 points and 11 rebounds
  • Carmelo Anthony (4) – Only had 11 points and 9 rebounds against this same Hawks team on Sunday
  • Nikola Mirotic (4) – Coming off back-to-back 17 point games
  • Zaza Pachulia (4) – Cheaper option at center averaging 14 points and 12.3 rebounds over last 3 games
  • Dirk Nowitzki (4) – Leading scorer for team with a high Vegas total
  • Bobby Portis (3) – Playing time and production vary from night to night, cheaper option
  • Jordan Clarkson (3) – Should see big minutes if D’Angelo Russell is out tonight
  • Lou Williams (3) – Averaging 27 points, 5.5 rebounds, and 4.5 assists over last 2 games, could continue with Kobe Bryant expected to be out tonight
  • Khris Middleton (3) – Has been playing better lately averaging 25.3 points over his last 4 games
  • Jeff Teague (3) – Only had 9 points and 3 assists against this same Knicks team on Sunday
  • Taj Gibson (3) – Continues to see increased minutes with Joakim Noah out

Hope you find the right combination to cash!
