Stephen Curry (GS) – As we saw last night with Curry, if you can time the situations where the Warriors need his offense you’re going to get some nice return on your investment at the current price points. Curry’s price has been suppressed by a series of blowouts and a slight shift in usage rate this month towards Klay Thompson. When the game is competitive or Golden State’s offense stalls, Curry is the one who shoulders the load. The Warriors are 9.5 point favorites tonight which seems like the minimum for a home game for the Warriors of late but the total is 225. The game pits the two fastest teams in the league, according to pace, against one another. This should help mitigate some of the blowout risk as Curry should see extra possessions per quarter. He’s the top overall point guard option and if he plays 35 or more minutes tonight, I think he’ll contend for the top overall play.
Next in line:
John Wall (WAS) – Wall missed shoot-around with a migraine and is also nursing an ankle injury. His teammates are expecting him to play and with a reduced price point around the industry I think he’s a compelling alternative to Curry. Toronto has slipped to 24th in defensive efficiency against point guards on the season and they were torn apart by Jarrett Jack last night. The Raptors are also playing their fourth game in five nights while the Wizards have had two days off. Vegas posted a 203 total for the game with a relatively tight spread (four points). Wall is a nice target if confirmed in.
