CBB DFS Picks: DraftKings & FanDuel Fantasy Basketball

Stud CBB Picks Today

E.J. Liddell ($8,600) — An interesting night for studs, tonight’s slate features a number of potential blowouts and some less than ideal game environments. Oscar Tshiebwe and Paolo Banchero run the risk of playing reduced minutes at elevated prices and Colin Castleton finds himself in one of the lower-totaled games on the slate. While all three are possible targets in GPPs, paying down for E.J. Liddell could make some sense. Ohio State starters also run the risk of limited minutes in a blowout as 14.5-point favorites over Nebraska in a game with a 150 total. However, if Nebraska keeps this game close, Liddell has played over 35 minutes in three straight games. Liddell is also one of the most involved players in the country, behind his 24.4% shot rate, 21.4% rebound rate and 14.3% assist rate in Ohio State’s last three games. For those looking at cheaper Ohio State options, Malaki Branham has played 33 minutes or more with elite rates over Ohio State’s last three games, as well.

Hunter Dickinson ($8,400) — Still playing without their head coach, Michigan is a 4.5-point favorite over Michigan State in a game with a 143.5-point total. Absolutely dominating usage for the Wolverines, Hunter Dickinson has now played 34, 39 and 34 minutes in three straight games. In this span, he accounts for a 22.9% shot rate, 28.1% rebound rate and 9.1% assist rate. At this point, Dickinson is basically a walking double-double with the benefit of a tight minute rotation here. For those finding themselves just short of Dickinson, any of the Michigan starters could be used in GPPs with their 74-point implied team total.

Dickinson is looking like one of the best CBB picks today for the Super Tuesday slate. Despite a high salary, he is popping in the projections and is coming in atop the DraftKings CBB DFS Cheat Sheet and FanDuel CBB DFS Cheat Sheet.

Kennedy Chandler ($7,500) — Another potential blowout spot, Tennessee is a 15.5-point favorite over Georgia in a game with a 145.5-point total. Unlike other potential blowout spots, the Tennessee studs do not break the bank. Kennedy Chandler in particular has played 33, 37 and 28 minutes in Tennessee’s last three games. Leading the team with a 19.9% usage rate, Chandler has also contributed a 21.4% shot rate, 10.7% rebound rate and 34.5% assist rate over Tennessee’s last three games. Unfortunately, Tennessee tends to expand their rotation in these situations, but the Volunteer’s 80.5-point implied team total is worth the risk here.

Mike Miles ($6,900) — TCU’s Mile Miles enters tonight’s slate in a slightly better spot than most may think as a 5.5-point underdog to Kansas in a game with a 143-point total. TCU has a higher implied team total than Florida, Vanderbilt and Providence, but the TCU players may go overlooked. Miles in particular has played 38, 36 and 35 minutes in TCU’s last three games, maximizing his 20.6% usage rate. In that span, Miles has a 28.1% shot rate, 11.1% rebound rate and 33.3% assist rate for TCU. Kansas will play solid defense overall, but Miles’ usage rate offers plenty of upside. There is a chance that Miles provides leverage and offers salary relief on tonight’s slate.

Umoja Gibson ($5,000) — A less than ideal game environment, Oklahoma is a 5-point favorite over West Virginia in a game with a 135.5-point total. Even with a 70.25-point implied team total, Oklahoma still provides potential value with the injury to Elijah Harkless. In particular, Umoja Gibson looks like a safer player to target in this game. Gibson has now played 43, 30 and 34 minutes in Oklahoma’s last three games. In this span, he has an 18.3% shot rate and 17.7% assist rate for the Sooners. Jordan Goldwire has quietly assumed alpha status on this team, but Gibson offers enough salary relief to target in his place.

Moussa Diabate ($5,000) — On the cheaper end of Michigan’s starting five, Moussa Diabate returned from his suspension to immediately play 30 minutes for the Wolverines. Diabate has shown strong season-long numbers with a 10.6% shot rate and 14.7% rebound rate, despite starting the year in a rotational role. Since then, Diabate has slowly earned more minutes while providing a nice complement to Dickinson in the frontcourt. Diabate still runs the risk of foul trouble, evidenced by Michigan’s third most recent game against Wisconsin. Diabate nearly fouled out in just 19 minutes but if he can keep his hands to himself, he should play 30-plus minutes here.

CBB Value Picks Today

Liam Robbins ($4,900) — Vanderbilt takes on Florida in a pick-em game with a total sitting at 135 points. Both teams are implied for 67.5-points overall, leaving a little bit to be desired. However, Castleton and Scotty Pippen Jr. are still worthwhile targets in tournaments due to their high usage rates. Vanderbilt also has a number of potential value plays, including transfer Liam Robbins. Robbins missed most of the year due to injury but has now played 26, 25 and 15 minutes in Vanderbilt’s last three games. Robbins looked likely to play 30 minutes sometime in the near future before he fouled out in 15 minutes in Vanderbilt’s most recent game. Positively, this keeps his price low in this spot. Even in limited minutes, Robbins still has a 12.7% shot rate, 17.9% rebound rate and 8.1% assist rate in Vanderbilt’s last three games. Even in a tough matchup here, Robbins has a strong upside for a player at his price point.

TyTy Washington ($4,600) — After a multi-game absence, TyTy Washington returned to the floor for Kentucky to play 35 minutes. On the year, Washington has a team-leading 19.4% usage rate, 15.1% shot rate and 22.3% assist rate. Kentucky is a 17-point favorite over Ole Miss in a game with a 140-point total. With only one game under his belt since the return, it is possible that Kentucky limits Washington’s minutes here. However, playing 35 minutes in his return suggests that Washington is more than ready to assume his starting role. Like most value plays, Washington is a risk/reward option to consider in a solid game environment here.

Marvin Johnson ($3,800) — For those looking at bottom of the barrel options, Oklahoma has a potential value piece in an ever-shifting rotation. After missing a series of games, Marvin Johnson returned to Oklahoma and has now played 10 and 30 minutes in back-to-back games. Interestingly, C.J. Noland did not see the floor for the Sooners in their last game. Johnson also played over Jacob Groves, Ethan Chargois and Bijan Cortes, who had played rotational minutes all season. While the minutes could shift at any time, very few players have a shot at 30 minutes at this price. He is a high-risk play, but the potential reward is there as well.
