Bankster’s NBA 3-Point Play – April 10, 2019

by • April 10, 2019

Did you know that on even a six game NBA slate, there are approximately 250 BILLION lineup combinations you can make? To be able to hit on the 1 lineup out of those combinations is harder than winning the lottery. A reduced player pool, though, can give you a significant advantage by reducing the possible lineup combinations you can make. If we limit our choices to only 5 players per position, you now have 400,000 possible lineup combinations you can make (pricing helps reduce this number even lower). Sure, that’s still a lot of lineup choices but it’s only .00016% of the total possible lineup combinations everyone else is working with. That is a SIGNIFICANT advantage for you if you’re choosing from a strong reduced player pool. That’s where we come in to help.

    Bankster DFS, The Home of the Reduced Player Pool, has teamed up with Fanball to give you a daily sneak peak of three of the plays we have included in our Bankster DFS reduced player pool. We aren’t lineup sellers; we write full articles that explain which players we like, why we like those players, and how we like to build our teams. We are a learning site more than anything, and you can see that in heavy member interaction on our various Slack Chat channels (we have one for every sport that we cover – NBA, AAF, NFL, NHL, MLB, EPL, PGA, MMA, CBB, WWE, sports betting, and Best Ball 10’s). You can get the rest of our reduced player pool, our daily articles, our members only slack chat, and Fanball exclusives with a Bankster DFS membership. That membership costs only $2.99/wk and you get everything mentioned above with it; 10% of all membership fees are donated to Donors Choose (a site that funds projects for teachers and their classrooms). You can contact me about membership on Twitter @bankster17 or sign up for service here.

Let’s look at the 3 point plays for Wednesday, April 10…

From the Corner: Ersan Ilyasova (MIL/PF – $3K)
   
With Giannis expected to be out, I expect the Bucks to take it easy on their starters with their spot already locked in and nothing to play for. This spot could be filled by DJ Wilson, but Wilson is the younger and more effective player and I’d expect Milwaukee will want to keep him fresh for the playoffs. Ilyasova, despite his veteran leadership, is a far less important player to Milwaukee on the court so if one of them will be thrown out there with a risk of injury I expect it to be him. That said, Ilyasova can still ball (3 games of 23+ fantasy points over his last ten games when he’s been given actual minutes to play). He should be able to produce for you as a potential focal point against the Thunder.

From the Wing: Andre Drummond (DET/C – $9,700)
   
He could absolutely smash on this slate. We saw that Blake Griffin is still injured as he posted one of his worst games of the year against the Grizzlies Tuesday. If he is at all limited, you have to think that Drummond puts this team in his back to best the Knicks and get in to the playoffs. He averages 16 points and 17 boards against the Knicks this year, and over his last seven games he has posted 17+ rebounds six times. With something still to play for, expect Drummond to be totally dominant; quite possibly the top overall play on the slate.

From Way Downtown: Patty Mills (SA/PG – $3K)
   
He’s been playing over 20 minutes as the Spurs have found themselves near the bottom of the western conference. Expect him to see over 20 tonight in a great matchup with the Dallas Mavericks. He has hit that number in 6 of his last ten games, and Dallas has the second worst defense against opposing PG in the NBA. At this point there’s no reason to think he won’t get 20+ minutes and be a strong candidate for a 7x return on his near min-price.
