Draymond Green of the Golden State Warriors is an absolute must have tonight! He has played against the Portland Trailblazers three times thus far in the 2016-2017. Two of the games were played at home. His average numbers from the last four games played have been down. He has averaged only 26.6 FPPG between them. In those four games he has average 29.5 MPG, which is nearly 4 minutes below his current overall average of 33 plus MPG. Why do guys pop for 40-50 FPTS after putting up a 25? Several reasons, but one major one is a player’s daily match up.
The Portland Trailblazers give up 46.3 FPTS to the Power Forward Position, which is last place in the league. I took a snapshot of what our FanDuel Daily NBA Lineups tool hit on. I also included some other top tier PF picks for tonight in the snapshot. Have a look >
Look for Draymond Green to have a break out game tonight hitting that solid 36-41 FPT mark. He has averaged a total of 39 FPTS in 29.5 MPG within the last three meetings this season. His value of $7,900 is fair and he could very well pop a 50. The Over/Under is currently 228 and has the Golden State Warriors (-9).
A little BONUS! Do not sleep on Kevin Durant. He goes off on the Trailblazers just about every time he plays against them. I’m sure it has something to do with them passing on him in the NBA Draft and taking Greg Oden. We all know how that shook out…huh cushions! Good Luck tonight!
