FanDuel Daily NBA Picks For February 12

FanDuel NBA Daily Picks

Four game NBA slate is scheduled on Sunday night with superstars such as Kawhi Leonard, Carmelo Anthony, Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins all in action.

The San Antonio Spurs (41-12) head to the ‘Big Apple’ to face the New York Knicks (22-33). The Knickerbockers have been a disaster this both on and off the court. Losing their past four games in a row they will be faced with a tough opponent, the consistent Spurs who year in and year out find a new way to win. San Antonio are 19-4 against Eastern conference teams and should improve this in a favorable matchup.

Meanwhile, a duel between two of the best big men in the game is on the show tonight, with Anthony Davis and the New Orleans Pelicans (21-33), facing DeMarcus Cousins and the Sacramento Kings (22-32). Both teams are looking to make a push for the eighth seed in the West. Tipoff is at 9 PM ET.


OUT:Joakim Noah (hamstring)

Monitor:Dwyane Wade (wrist), Jimmy Butler (heel), Patrick Patterson (knee), E’Twaun Moore (personal), Terrence Jones (thumb), Alexis Ajinca (ankle), Tyreke Evans (ankle), Ty Lawson (groin)

Top 3 Sleepers

Danny Green (FanDuel: $3900)

San Antonio Spurs vs New York Knicks

For such a cheap price of $3,900, Green has been solid over his last ten outings. Averaging 29 minutes, Green has averaged 8.6 points, 4 rebounds and almost 20 FD points in that span. With Greg Popovich relying on Green’s defensive expertise, he should always receive a healthy amount of playing time.

Kyle O’Quinn (FanDuel: $4,400)

New York Knicks vs San Antonio Spurs

Joakim Noah has missed the past three games for the Knicks and in his absence, O’Quinn has taken full advantage of the extra playing time. In the three-game span, O’Quinn has averaged 14.7 points, 4.7 rebounds and 28 FD points. Noah is once again not playing tonight so go and do your favor and pick O’Quinn.

Jon Leuer (FanDuel: $4,800)

Detroit Pistons vs Toronto Raptors

Leuer has been earning the start for the Pistons averaging almost 31 minutes per game his last five matches. With that amount of playing time has led to production for the big man averaging 16 points, 4.2 rebounds, 2 dimes and 23.4 FD points.

Top 3 Value Players

Darren Collison (FanDuel: $5,400)

Sacramento Kings vs New Orleans Pelicans

With Ty Lawson missing the past two games, Collison has exploded in both games averaging 41 minutes, 24 points, 4.5 assists and 37.7 FD points. Including a game winner against the Hawks in the previous outing. With Lawson once again listed on the injury report, Collison should have a great game tonight.

Ricky Rubio (FanDuel: $6,600)

Minnesota Timberwolves vs Chicago Bulls

Rubio has been phenomenal his past ten outings averaging 13.2 points, 9.4 assists, 1.5 steals and 31.5 FD points. This is sure to only increase with the season-ending injury to Zach LaVine.

Jonas Valanciunas (FanDuel: $5,900)

Toronto Raptors vs Detroit Pistons

Valanciunas can be the forgotten man in Toronto. Make sure you don’t forget to put him in your FanDuel lineups tonight. The Lithuanian big man is averaging 19.3 points, 8.3 rebounds and 32 FD points in his past four outings and his last game against the Pistons was a huge one. Valanciunas scored 32 points and 11 rebounds on October 26th in his previous outing against the Raptors.

Top 3 Star Players

Kawhi Leonard (FanDuel: $9,600)

San Antonio Spurs vs New York Knicks

Leonard is scoring the ball like never before. Still valued below the price-tag $10,000, Leonard is a steal at his price as he has averaged 29.4 points, 6.5 rebounds, 4.6 assists and 45.1 FD points in his past ten. Rest assured Leonard will have another terrific game.

Karl-Anthony Towns (FanDuel: $10,600)

Minnesota Timberwolves vs Chicago Bulls

Towns has been a monster has previous five games averaging 30.2 points, 11.4 rebounds and 47 FD points. The Bulls have allowed opponents to score 113 points in their previous eight matches. Towns is a lock in for a big game.

DeMarcus Cousins (FanDuel: $11,000)

Sacramento Kings vs New Orleans Pelicans

It was a toss up between Cousins and Davis. I’m going with Cousins. The Pelicans have allowed opposition centers to score an average of 48.8 FD points this season, that’s the fifth worst this year. It should be an intriguing battle between Cousins and Davis, a must watch.
