Get ready for a busy Wednesday night in the NBA as there are 14 games on the schedule. There are a ton of options to choose from for your FanDuel lineup, so letís get right down to business and highlight some players to target.


Russell Westbrook, OKC vs. NY ($12,400): Westbrook is coming off of only 29.8 FanDuel points Monday against the Wizards, but he had scored at least 60.9 FanDuel points in three straight games heading into that contest. The Knicks are allowing opponents to score an average 109.1 points per game this season and are only 9-18 on the road, so donít expect them to be able to slow down Westbrook Wednesday.

Dion Waiters, MIA at HOU ($7,100): Waiters played Monday after missing three straight games and didnít miss a beat by scoring 32.4 FanDuel points. The Rockets are allowing opposing shooting guards to score an average of 37.2 FanDuel points per game, which is fifth most in the league. Look for Waiters to carry a significant offensive load again Wednesday.

Malcolm Brogdon, MIL at BKN ($5,100): Brogdon hasnít been overly productive of late, but he has scored at least 22.4 FanDuel points in five of his last seven games. He still plays a lot of minutes even though he comes off the bench as he is averaging 29 minutes over his last eight games. The Nets allow the most FanDuel points against opposing point guards at 49.3 per game, so Brogdon has potential at this cheap price.



Kawhi Leonard, SA at ORL ($9,900): Leonard continues to be an offensive force as he has scored at least 32 points in four straight games. Add in his usual well rounded production and he scored at least 44.7 FanDuel points in all four of those contests. Donít hesitate to add him to your lineup Wednesday.

Frank Kaminsky, CHA at TOR ($5,800): Kaminsky is in line to start again Wednesday against the Raptors with both Cody Zeller (quad) and Miles Plumlee (calf) ruled out. When he gets extended minutes, he tends to produce as he has scored at least 33.2 FanDuel points in each of the last three games in which he played at least 33 minutes. The price is right to roll with him again in this contest.

Michael Beasley, MIL at BKN ($4,900): Beasley exploded for 40.6 FanDuel points Monday against the Pistons. The key to that game was that he played 32 minutes, a good sign that the Bucks will be counting on him to play more with Jabari Parker (knee) out for the season. The Nets allow the most FanDuel points per game to opposing forwards at 44.0, making Beasley an attractive option at this discounted price.



Rudy Gobert, UTA vs. POR ($7,700): Gobert has been a model of consistency as he has scored at least 30.3 FanDuel points in nine straight games. He is a walking double-double who blocks a ton of shots, which gives him a high floor on most evenings. Portlandís center position has undergone a makeover after trading away Mason Plumlee and Jusuf Nurkic not fully up to speed, so look for Gobert to take advantage of that Wednesday.

Al Horford, BOS vs. PHI ($6,800): At first glace, you might not think Horford is a strong option Wednesday, as he has scored 29.3 FanDuel points or less in each of his last four games. However, he gets to take on a Sixers squad that allows an average of 51.6 FanDuel points to opposing centers, which is the most in the league. Horford scored 42.4 FanDuel points against them a little over a month ago and could be in line for another big performance Wednesday.

Kelly Olynyk, BOS vs. PHI ($4,600): Olynyk has been a solid contributor for the Celtics of late and has scored at least 22.9 FanDuel points in each of his last four games. Although he is only averaging 9.2 points a game for the season overall, he has scored at least 13 points in four of his last five games. If you need to save money at center Wednesday, Olynyk is someone to consider.
