CBB DFS & NCAAB Picks Today: DraftKings & FanDuel Fantasy Basketball

Stud CBB Picks Today

Alondes Williams ($9,100) — While tonight’s slate lacks some of the same values as last night, finding a way to jam in Wake Forest’s Alondes Williams should be a priority. Wake Forest is a 3-point favorite over Clemson in a game with a 144.5-point total. Williams will play every minute with his elite 21.6% usage rate. Over Wake Forest’s last three games, Williams has an absurd 28.5% shot rate, 15.9% assist rate and 26.2% rebound rate. While value is scarce, Williams simply brings a safer floor than any other player on the slate.

Williams was popping as one of the best high-end CBB picks when running the CBB DFS optimizer. Check out all of the rest of the best CBB picks today in the DraftKings CBB DFS Cheat Sheet and FanDuel CBB DFS Cheat Sheet.

Hunter Dickinson ($8,400) — Playing this game without coach Juwan Howard and players Moussa Diabate and Terrance Williams, Michigan is still a 5-point favorite over Rutgers in a game with a 135.5-point total. Shorthanded in the frontcourt, Hunter Dickinson should be forced to play nearly every minute here. Dickinson had already played 34, 32 and 36 minutes in Michigan’s last three games. However, with the Wolverines now on the bubble, Michigan has no other choice but to give Dickinson extended run here. He has an elite 19.5% usage rate, 22% shot rate and 21.5% rebound rate on the year.

Kyler Edwards ($7,100) — Houston enters this slate as a 9-point favorite over Tulane in a game with a 138-point total. Playing condensed minutes behind a 73.5-point implied team total, Houston has multiple options worth targeting here in Kyler Edwards, Fabian White, Josh Carlton, Jamal Shead and Taze Moore. Of this group, Edwards brings the best projection behind his 18.7% usage rate. Playing 49, 38 and 32 minutes in Houston’s last three games, Edwards has contributed a 21.6% shot rate, 22.3% rebound rate and 27.7% assist rate in that span.

Bo Hodges ($6,100) — Butler enters this slate with an anemic 59.5-point implied team total as a 9.5-point underdog to Seton Hall in a game with a 128.5-point total. Despite the poor environment against a strong Seton Hall defense, Bo Hodges remains in play at $6,100. Hodges continues to be priced down as he battles injury. After missing two straight games, Hodges immediately returned to 37 minutes in Butler’s overtime game against Providence. Hodges has a 14.8% usage rate when healthy and challenges a 20% shot rate when given full minutes. Even in a tough matchup, Hodges strong involvement warrants consideration.

Trey Alexander ($5,000) — Creighton continues to battle injury, but they play in one of the best game environments on the slate as 5-point underdogs to St. John’s in a game with a 150-point total. In particular, Creighton has played multiple games without Arthur Kaluma of late. Exacerbating injury concerns, Alex O’Connell also left Creighton’s last game with a lower body injury and did not return. The primary beneficiary of these injuries has been Trey Alexander. After battling some foul issues in his first few starts, Alexander has now played 37, 28 and 22 minutes in three straight games. He has also contributed an 11.8% shot rate, 19.4% rebound rate and 14.9% assist rate in that span. If both O’Connell and Kaluma miss here, Rati Andronikashvili would also be a candidate to see extended minutes.

Courtney Ramey ($4,600) — Another poor game environment, Texas is an 8.5-point favorite over TCU in a game with a 126.5-point total. Texas has underwhelmed this year and that goes for stud transfers Timmy Allen and Marcus Carr. With Carr playing particularly poor basketball of late, Courtney Ramey has seen a minutes increase. Over Texas’ last three games, Ramey has played 37, 23 and 24 minutes. In that span, he has a 12.4% shot rate, 10.8% rebound rate and 18.2% assist rate. Ramey still runs the risk of playing limited minutes in a volatile Texas rotation, but value is scarce on today’s slate. For those willing to play a little more Andrew Jones also projects well in a poor game environment.

Nick Honor ($3,700) — On the other side of the Wake Forest game, Clemson still has a decent 70.75-point implied team total. Wake Forest plays fast, providing a pace up spot for the Tigers. With P.J. Hall and Hunter Tyson expected to miss this game, Nick Honor is a candidate for extra minutes. It should be noted that this Clemson rotation is not consistent. In fact, Honor has played 16, 23 and 37 minutes in Clemson’s last three games. Chase Hunter Provides a safer minute floor, but he does not provide the same savings. For those looking to jam multiple studs, Honor is a risky GPP value piece with a solid 15.1% usage rate.

Brandon Johns ($3,700) — With Michigan so short in the front court, the Wolverines may be forced to play Brandon Johns. Johns only has seven, four and 10 minutes over Michigan’s last three games. He is largely uninvolved, but many around the program believe he takes over most of Diabate’s minutes. Overall, Johns is another speculative GPP play in a solid game environment.
