DFS Picks and Betting Lines – April 12: Brook Lopez, Kris Middleton

Gambling911.com has your DFS picks and betting lines as we wrap up the season.  Milwaukee, Brooklyn, Boston and Indiana have not yet secured a final Playoffs spot in the East while New Orleans and Oklahoma City duke it out for that final spot in the West.  We will look at each of these teams as players really need to step it up in these waning days of the regular NBA season.

BetOnline

Brook Lopez (Brooklyn - C) $8.4K - Milwaukee not only struggles against centers, Lopez had close to 70 fantasy points against them the last time facing Milwaukee.  Lopez’s price has shot up over $1000 in the past two weeks.   Brooklyn has been playing some good basketball of late, winning eight of their last ten games.  Lopez has been key to this resurgence. 

Bojan Bogdanovic (Brooklyn - C)  $3.9K – The Nets shooting guard came off the bench and made nearly 30 fantasy points against Washington.  He’s priced low, needing only 23 fantasy points.  He scored 22 points against the Nationals. 

Kris Middleton (Milwaukee – SG)  $6K - Khris Middleton scored 22 points on 9-of-16 shooting (including three treys) with seven rebounds, two assists and six steals in Friday's win over the Knicks.  But even better, Middletown knocked down 29 points the last time he played Brooklyn, and that alone practically helped Middleton make value at his current price. 

Giannis Antetokounmpo (Milwaukee – SF)  $6.6K – Antekounmpo had over 30 fantasy points the other night and over 40 the last time he faced Brooklyn.

Tyreke Evans (New Orleans – PG) - $7.7K – He played remarkably well versus the Rockets last time with well over 40 fantasy points scored. 

Russell Westbrook (Oklahoma City – PG) $11.8K – His workload will be increased in this game.  Previously facing Indiana, Westbrook enjoyed over 45 fantasy points.  We would expect that number to reach beyond the 50 mark Sunday.

C.J. Miles (Indiana - SF.J $5K - Miles scored 24 points in 28 minutes against the Pistons on Friday with five boards, two assists and five 3-pointers. At his current price point he has value, especially having scored just over 20 points the last time facing OKC.

It's interesting that, depending on where you look, the Jazz-Thunder game was seeing lopsided action on either side, at least early on.

Could it really have been that easy?  We were all over the 76ers covering a 10 point line to wipe Miami out of the Playoffs picture and that is exactly what happened, bringing our NBA record to a cool 9-1-1 or 90%.
