FanDuel NBA Lineup Advice: Friday (2/21) PREMIUM
Tonight’s slate features a nine-game lineup, all of which are included on the main slate which tips off at 7:00 p.m. EST. Only the Memphis Grizzlies are operating on a back-to-back, doubling down on a trip throughout California. Please adjust your lineups accordingly.
Jamal Murray (PG – DEN): $7,200 @ OKC
There may not be a hotter player entering tonight’s slate post-all-star break than the Canadian point-man. Murray played over 34+ minutes in four straight games prior to the break, with two of those contests ending in 40+ minutes. Not only is his workload incredibly high, but Murray was a scoring machine, managing to top 26+ real-life points in each of those four games, with the remaining three performances all topping 30+. The Oklahoma City Thunder aren’t a great matchup as they rank 12th in defensive rating and 23rd in pace, but the hot hand takes precedence here.
Anfernee Simons (PG – POR): $4,800 vs. NO
Simons is a major play tonight with starting PG Damian Lillard sidelined due to an injury sustained prior to the break. Simons registered 27 minutes of playing time in his first contest with major minutes since Lillard’s injury and managed to total 30.9 FanDuel points in that contest on the back of a 22 real-life point performance. Simons is likely to be a chalky play tonight as the matchup against the New Orleans Pelicans is a great one. The Pelicans rank 23rd in defensive rating and 3rd in pace. As it currently stands, this contest leads the implied totals of the night by far.
