Two games stand out on Monday night’s nine-game slate with the Suns/Wizards and Warriors/Pacers matchups coming in with the highest Vegas totals by far. There are also a ton of strong value options on the slate with so many teams decimated by injuries. It could be a very “chalky” night.

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. Also listed projected ownership percentages for Cash and GPP leagues to help determine which players will be the chalk and which players could be a good low owned contrarian play.

Here are the Industry Consensus picks for tonight…

Highly Touted

  • Kevin Durant (13x) – Cash 55% / GPP 41% – Over 30 minutes in every game this season averaging 27.9 points and 8.0 rebounds per game
  • Hassan Whiteside (12x) – 54% / 40% – Has produced double-double in all but one game this season
  • Thaddeus Young (11x) – 39% / 26% – Reasonable price in a game with one of the highest Vegas totals on a team that has numerous injuries to their starters
  • Glenn Robinson III (10x) – 34% / 24% – Played 45 minutes in last game and should get big minutes again Monday with Paul George and CJ Miles out
  • John Wall (9x) – 25% / 21% – Averaging 28.0 points and 8.3 assists over last 3 games, playing in one of the highest Vegas totals on the slate
  • Blake Griffin (9x) – 25% / 21% – Has scored at least 20 points in 7 straight games
  • James Harden (9x) – 25% / 21% – Should play big minutes in a close game on the road in Detroit
  • Jeff Teague (8x) – 21% / 18% – Second game of a back-to-back but coming off a huge 30-point game on Sunday and should have increased usage with George and Miles out
  • Bradley Beal (8x) – 21% / 18% – Prime matchup for Beal in a up-tempo game against the Suns
  • Giannis Antetokounmpo (8x) – 21% / 18% – High floor contributing stuff the stat sheet every night
  • Jonathan Gibson (8x) – 21% / 18% – Cheap option getting minutes with all of the injuries to the Mavericks backcourt
