Bankster’s NBA 3-Point Play – March 31, 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 Sunday, March 31…
From the Corner: Steph Curry (GSW/PG – $)
From the mouth of Derrick Mcgough (@mcgoughderrick), “on this star studded team, Steph carries the most upside of any of them. He has had 52,55, and 41 fantasy points in the last three games. He is coming off a loss to a bad Timberwolves team and Steph was not happy about the loss. I would imagine he will take the lead in getting his team back on the right track.”
From the Wing: Nikola Jokic (DEN/C – $)
From the mouth of Zac Green (@okiecowpoke14), “Centers have been eating the Wizards like a late night snack. He may be expensive but he is worth it on a small slate. He has 4 double doubles in his last 5 games. I could easily see him getting a double double in the first half tonight. I think he definitely has more upside on this slate than LaMarcus Aldridge, Jonas Valanciunas (who is questionable) and DeMarcus Cousins. Those are the top priced centers. If you are wanting to pay up at the center spot, Jokic should be your lock in. Shoot, I will give you a sneaky value play even you could also look at his backup, Mason Plumlee. If this blows out, they could both hit 6x value quickly.”
From Way Downtown: Shai Gilgeous Alexander (LAC/PG – $)
From the mouth of Derrick Mcgough (@mcgoughderrick), “towards the end of the season, with Pat Beverley dealing with minor injuries and Landry Shamet working the two guard position, Shai has been lighting it up. He has 38,38,24 fantasy points in his last three games at a lower mid range price. We will take his 5-7 x all day. They are playing a Memphis team who are playing several guys who weren’t playing with the team at the start of the year. I look for Shai to have more towards a ceiling game tonight.”
On the Bench (Fade of the Day): Kemba Walker (CHA/PG – $)
From the mouth of Zac Green (@okiecowpoke14), “Both Derrick and myself went right to Kemba as our first thought for a fade. He gets Steph Curry defense and he is on the road. He will carry higher ownership due to game log watchers who see his recent run of hot games. Two of those were at home, where he feasts. Kemba struggles a lot on the road. Even when he played the Warriors at home, he struggled with just a 23-3-6 line. We do not see Kemba hitting 5x value tonight in what could be a quick blowout as well.”
