A solid seven-game slate of NBA action on Monday including two games with huge favorites in the Raptors and Warriors facing teams on the second game of a back-to-back in the Sixers and Hawks respectively which could lead to reduced minutes by the starters on both sides. The highest Vegas total projected for a close game features the Thunder traveling to New York to face the Knicks which could be an opportunity for a game stack.

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…
