Cleveland Cavs Daily Fantasy Value, Betting Report – February 19

The Cleveland Cavaliers daily fantasy value and betting report as we enter into the second half of the 2015 NBA season is examined by, the official sponsor of the first ever Daily Fantasy Sports Expo in Miami Beach.  This is just one of the many new additions to the site to compliment the second half of the season that we hope will make you a winner whether you’re betting on games or playing daily fantasy NBA.

The Cavs finally got super hot the few weeks leading up to the All Star Break winning 12 straight and 8 of their last 10.  Cleveland is back to being the 4-1 favorite to win the 2015 NBA Championship.  

Cleveland plays four of its next five games on the road and hosts one of the best teams, Golden State.  They went 3-2 in their last five meetings with the upcoming competition.

Cleveland will face Washington, New York and Detroit on the road.  They then host Golden State before a game on the road versus Indiana.

Here are your projected salaries and target fantasy points to make value (vary between sites):

Lebron James (SF) $10.5K – 41 fantasy points

JR Smith (SG) $4.7K – 22 fantasy points

Kyrie Irving (PG) $8.5K – 35 fantasy points

Timofey. Mozgov (C) $5.2K – 26 fantasy points

Lebron James – Even at such a steep price, Lebron needs to be considered for all of your rosters.  Due to 8 turnovers, King James failed to make value against Chicago his final faceoff before the Break.

Detroit in particular struggles against the small forward. The last time James faced the Pistons was no exception as he easily surpassed his value.  He also made value against the Knicks.

Versus Washington, James destroyed the Wizards. 

Washington – Strong Go

New York – Go

Detroit – Strong Go

Golden State – Neutral/Hold

Indiana – Hold

JR Smith – He may be one of the few players that can match up well against the Indiana Pacers, who have struggled somewhat against shooting guards.  They rank 25th against this position.  Smith, who only needs 22 fantasy points to make value, did so the last time he faced Indiana.

The Knicks have allowed the 7th most fantasy points versus opposing shooting guards. 

Washington – Hold

New York – Go

Detroit – Hold

Golden State – Hold

Indiana – Go/Neutral

Timofey. Mozgov – Detroit has allowed the 4th most fantasy points vs. opposing centers.  Mozgov, however, is priced a little too high for our tastes.

Kyrie Irving – Play him against the Knicks.  He made well over value vs. New York the last time he faced them.
