Daily Fantasy NBA Picks, Salaries and Betting Lines – March 17: Anthony Davis’ N

Gambling911.com has your daily fantasy NBA picks, salaries and betting lines for March 17.   There are five games on tap for today.  It is important to note this time of the year, key players are likely to be rested in certain matchups and Tuesday night is full of such situations. 

Nikola Vucevic (Orlando - C) $8.7K – It’s not common for us to pick someone going up against the red hot Houston Rockets but Houston is giving up more fantasy points this month against opposing centers than any other team.   Houston is also likely to sit players this evening.   He scored over 50 fantasy points against the Rockets last time facing them.

Anthony Davis (New Orleans - PF) $11.4K – Davis might be a better option than James Harden this evening…and that is saying a lot.  Davis finished with 43 points, 10 rebounds, and 6 assists vs. Ersan Ilyasova the last time he faced him.  Iyasova walked away with a mere 6 points and 1 rebound in that matchup.  New Orleans – a +7 favorite here – has dominated this series over the last four games.  They have won 7 of their last 10 overall.  They also enter this game with a respectable 36-30 record.  The chances of a blowout and Davis seeing his minutes cut when compared to Harden (a big fear of ours with Houston hosting Orlando) are less likely this evening as the Bucks record sits just over .500.  That said, they have lost by eight or more points in three of their last four games versus New Orleans.

James Harden (Houston - SG) $10.5K – Harden had well over 55 fantasy points versus Orlando in his last game facing that team.  He will play the Magic on the 17th.  *The blowout potential is here so exercise some caution as minutes could be reduced. 

Marc Gasol (Memphis - C) $7.5K – Pricey when Anthony Davis and James Harden are two other big plays to consider this evening.  Still, Gasol is under $8K and Detroit has given up the 2nd most fantasy points to opposing centers this season. Detroit is only a +4.5 home dog versus a solid Memphis team.  The Grizzlies will likely sit players this evening against a Pistons team that has dropped their last 10 games.  Memphis has also dominated Detroit in recent games.  Gasol has made it abundantly clear he does not want to be rested ahead of the Playoffs. 

Gerald Henderson (Charlotte - SG) $5.1K - Needing only 25 fantasy points to make value, Henderson just lit it up against the Bulls, accumulating 30 plus fantasy points.  The Clippers have struggled against shooting guards of late though Henderson struggled against LA the last time he faced them. 

Tony Parker (San Antonio – SG) $6.6K – He has been averaging 25 fantasy points over his last 6 games and will face a Knicks team that is allowing the 10th most fantasy points to opposing shooting guards.  This is another situation where we rear Parker could be rested.
