Free NBA Expert DFS Cash Game Lineup Advice February 12

By Daniel Newton

We have one of the biggest main slates we have seen in a while, with 20 teams being in action tonight in the NBA. There’s one game that sticks out for cash game purposes tonight with the Hawks vs. Cavaliers having the highest projected total and the spread being 2.5 points. Six other teams have team totals of over 115 points, which should make today an exciting day in NBA DFS. I will give you my top expensive option (more than $8,500), mid-level option ($6,000-$8,400), and punt-play (less than $6,000) that I will be using in my cash game lineups tonight on FanDuel and DraftKings. Let’s begin by taking a look at my top play for tonight.

Trae Young has Monster Game

The Atlanta Hawks have the 2nd highest team total at 118.5 points, which is only .5 point behind the Memphis Grizzlies on tonight’s slate. It’s also one of our NBA Picks to go over the projected total. Trae Young has been one of the best players in DFS this season, and he has gone for an average of 55.57 points over his last three games. Tonight, the Hawks will be playing the Cavaliers who are allowing the 2nd most fantasy points to opposing point guards. I expect Young to have one of his best games of the season tonight.

Ja Morant Produces Massive Value in DFS

The Memphis Grizzlies have the highest team total tonight at 119 points and are playing in a game that has the 2nd highest total on the slate at 235 points when they go up against the Trail Blazers. Portland has allowed the 3rd most points to point guards this season. Morant is coming off a dominating performance against the Wizards in which he went for over 50 points on both sites. I look for another 35+ fantasy point performance against Portland in this match-up.

Ersan Ilyasova Top Punt-Play in DFS Tonight

Giannis Antetokounmpo is out once again after the birth of his son, which means there’s a ton of value to be had from the Bucks side on Wednesday night. On Monday, Ilyasova scored seven points, eight rebounds, one assist, one steal, and a block against the Kings, which equated to 23.1 fantasy points on FanDuel. I look for a better fantasy game tonight, but all we need is for Ilyasova to score around 20.5 points to return decent value in DFS for tonight’s slate.
