The Greek Freak has been red-hot down the stretch

It’s the last Monday in the NBA regular season, and teams are jockeying for playoff spots and seeding. There are nine games on the slate, most of which have playoff implications. Let’s get right to it, my FanDuel lineup for the evening.

Point Guard

Kemba Walker (CHA): $7,700 vs. MIL
Walker is closing out the best season of his career in a strong way, averaging 27.6 points, 5.8 assists, and 2.8 rebounds in his past five contests. He is decently priced and capable of having a big night against a Bucks team that has surrendered the fifth most FanDuel points to point guards in their past 10 games.

Ish Smith (DET): $5,600 vs. WAS
The Pistons have announced that Reggie Jackson will sit the remainder of the season, which opens the door for Smith. Good value here as Smith should see at least 30 minutes and have ample opportunities. Prior to Sunday’s game, Smith averaged 17.8 points, 5.3 assists, and 4.5 rebounds in his previous six games.

Shooting Guard

Giannis Antetokounmpo (MIL): $10,000 vs. CHA
The Greek Freak has led the Bucks to a playoff berth and can have a great all-around game any time he steps on the court. He comes into Monday night averaging 23.0 points, 11.2 rebounds, 6.8 assists, 2.0 blocks, and 1.6 steals in his past five games—good for 49.8 FanDuel points per game.

Bradley Beal (WAS): $7,400 vs. DET
Beal has been a consistent performer all year and should be reliable again in Monday’s matchup against the Pistons. Beal has averaged 21.4 points, 3.0 assists, and 3.0 rebounds in his past five games—on par with his season averages. Expect more of the same on Monday.

Small Forward

Rondae Hollis-Jefferson (BKN): $5,000 vs. BOS
Hollis-Jefferson is coming off a solid double-double on Saturday, 16 points and 12 rebounds, versus the Bulls (41.9 FanDuel points). He has scored in double-digits in two of his past three and is finishing his season strongly. The cheap salary makes Hollis-Jefferson someone worth targeting in your lineup.

Terrence Ross (ORL): $4,600 vs. CHI
Another value pick, Ross is coming off a great game in which he scored 29 points, had four rebounds, and two assists (36.8 FanDuel points). Ross is a decent gamble to perform well again against a Bulls team that has lost to the Knicks and the Nets in the past week.

Power Forward

LaMarcus Aldridge (SA): $6,700 vs. POR
Coach Popovich has said that he will not rest any of his regular players in the Spurs’ final two games, so here is hoping he stays true to his word. Aldridge gets a plus matchup on Monday versus his former team in Portland and should be able to put together a solid game against a below-average defense.

Richaun Holmes (PHI): $6,100 vs. IND
Holmes has recorded a double-double in consecutive games and has averaged close to a double-double in his past five (13.2 points and 8.2 rebounds). With a lot of the Sixers frontcourt shut down for the season, the opportunity is there for the 2nd year player to establish a role for himself in the last few games.

Center

Al Horford (BOS): $6,900 vs. BKN
The veteran gets to face a porous Nets team on Monday. With the 1-seed still up in the air, expect the Celtics to make sure they get a much-needed win against Brooklyn. Horford is a steady contributor and should flirt with a double-double on Monday.
