Daily Fantasy Basketball Strategy: February 27, 2016

A light eight-game slate Friday, relatively speaking at least, bleeds into a seven-game Saturday slate. There are actually eight games, but with the Heat-Celtics matinee stricken from most major tournaments, I’ll also strike it from the analysis here. Let’s get started by looking at the Vegas lines.

Vegas lines and totals

Minnesota @ New Orleans (-5) – total of 217
San Antonio (-6) @ Houston – total of 212.5
Portland (-3) @ Chicago – total of 207
Detroit @ Milwaukee (-2) – total of 203.5
Golden State (-3.5) @ Oklahoma City – total of 234
Brooklyn @ Utah (-11) – total of 196.5
Memphis (-6.5) @ Phoenix – total of 208

The main event Saturday is most certainly Warriors-Thunder, with a total of 234 and a small spread. This game should be hotly contested and easily reach the 110s on each side, which means tons of fantasy goodness, although most of the worthwhile players in the game are expensive, making it difficult to completely stack. Going with Wolves-Pelicans or Spurs-Rockets isn’t a bad alternative, while Nets-Jazz should be mostly avoided with a low total and blowout potential.
