Washington Wizards Daily Fantasy Value, Betting Report – February 20

The Washington Wizards daily fantasy value and betting report as we enter into the second half of the 2015 NBA season is examined by Gambling911.com, 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 Gambling911.com 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 Wizards have lost 6 of their last 10 games Straight Up and 7 Against The Spread.  The good news is that they won their final three games ATS prior to the break.  More good news, Washington appears to be getting healthy again.

Their next five games will be against opponents for whom the Wizards went 4-1 in their last meetings. Two of those games will be against the likes of Golden State and a surging Cleveland squad however, and the Cavs destroyed Washington in their last head-to-head.

Overall, the Wizards do face a favorable fantasy scenario against the likes of Detroit, Minnesota and Philadelphia.

They first host Cleveland then go on the road against Detroit.  Then it’s back home to face Golden State followed by games in Minnesota and Philadelphia. 

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

Paul Pierce (SF) $4.2K – 23 fantasy points

John Wall (PG) $9K – 36 fantasy points

Otto Porter (SF) $3K – 18 fantasy points

Nene (PF) $4.9K – 25 fantasy points

Kris Humphries (C) $4K – 24 fantasy points

Kris Humphries – Detroit has struggled mightily against opposing centers this season.  Humphries should be back from suffering a sore back prior to the All Star Break.  He remained questionable for the Cleveland game however.  The team will travel to Detroit two days later.  Monitor this one closely as we would make Humphries a GO.

Cleveland – NA

Detroit – MONITOR/GO

Golden State – Hold

Minnesota – Neutral

Philadelphia – Neutral

John Wall – Horrendous against Cleveland, superb against Detroit.  Against the Pistons Wall registered around 50 fantasy points.

You can consider Wall against Golden State as he pretty much made value the last time he faced the Warriors and would have excelled if not for the 5 turnovers.  Certainly keep him in mind when you make your roster. 

Against Minnesota and Philadelphia there is a risk of having a blowout whereby Wall has his minutes reduced though that risk is diminished on the road.  Wall killed it against Minnesota the last time he faced this team.

He only played just over 28 minutes against Philadelphia in a December 16 blowout compared to the just over 38 minutes played against Minnesota.  That kept his fantasy point tally to below 30 points. 

Cleveland – Hold

Detroit – STRONG GO

Golden State – Neutral/Go

Minnesota – STRONG GO

Philadelphia – Go
