NBA DFS Value and Advice | March 30
Milwaukee Bucks vs. Boston Celtics
Before locking in any Milwaukee players, it is crucial to check the injury report. If everyone is healthy, Giannis Antetokounmpo stands out as the best play on the slate due to his consistent all-around production. Khris Middleton, Jrue Holiday and Brook Lopez are also viable options at their correct price tags. If Antetokounmpo and/or Holiday rest, it will open up more value on the team. Look to players such as Grayson Allen, Joe Ingles and Pat Connaughton for potential value.
Boston, on the other hand, looks like the most underpriced team on the slate. Seven players — Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown, Marcus Smart, Derrick White, Al Horford, Malcolm Brogdon and Robert Williams — are projected for at least 24% ownership.

New Orleans Pelicans vs. Denver Nuggets
The Pelicans offer plenty of value on Thursday’s slate. Herbert Jones, Josh Richardson and Naji Marshall are all priced between $3,500 and $4,800 and are projected for over 20% ownership. Additionally, Larry Nance Jr. ($3,600) is projected for double-digit ownership and offers solid value. Brandon Ingram has been playing extremely well of late and has taken on a huge playmaking role in addition to his scoring. He should be considered a high-upside play in all formats. Jonas Valanciunas and C.J. McCollum also offer upside and should be considered for tournament lineups.
Nikola Jokic is listed as questionable for Thursday’s game. If he plays, he is a strong play as always due to his elite production and high floor. If he sits, it opens up a lot for the Denver Nuggets. Regardless of who starts in his place, there will also be a cheap starter who is viable for value. If Jokic does play, consider players such as Jamal Murray, Aaron Gordon and Michael Porter Jr. as strong mid-range plays. Additionally, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and Bruce Brown offer value at their current price tags. Jeff Green and Christian Braun are also viable punts for the largest-field tournaments.
