The schedule for Saturday contains 11 total games, nine of which are slated to tip-off at 7:00 p.m. EST for the main slate and two more during the day that will be included in the all-day slate (3:30 p.m. EST and 6:00 p.m. EST). The Minnesota Timberwolves, Philadelphia 76ers, Chicago Bulls, Toronto Raptors, Cleveland Cavaliers, Oklahoma City Thunder, Atlanta Hawks, and Portland Trail Blazers are all operating on a back-to-back.
Derrick Rose (PG – DET): $6,900 @ ATL
Now operating as the starting point guard for the Detroit Pistons (Bruce Brown out), Rose has a chance to really erupt, even more than he already has in his past six games. Rose is a great playmaking option that possesses the ability to score quickly and often. The matchup against the Atlanta Hawks is a great one, with the Hawks ranked 25th in defensive rating and 6th in pace. As it currently stands, this contest leads the main-slate games in implied total.
