Wednesday's NBA schedule
is a busy one, with there being 11 games, which is a positive for FanDuel players. But if there's one matchup that will garner the most attention, it's the game between the Houston Rockets and Oklahoma City Thunder
. Russell Westbrook ($11,500) and James Harden ($11,500) have the two highest FanDuel averages in the NBA, with Westbrook accounting for 56.4 points per game and Harden a point behind at 55.4. Westbrook has surpassed 50 FanDuel points in five of his last six games, with Harden doing so in seven straight contests.
Both players have done a considerable amount of "heavy lifting" for their respective teams, but this could be a matchup where the respective supporting casts determine which player (Westbrook or Harden) posts the higher FanDuel number. While Westbrook's had to carry a team that hasn't always been the most consistent when it comes to offensive contributions, Harden's playing in an offensive system that has helped teammates such as Eric Gordon and Ryan Anderson as well. With Westbrook, Harden and New Orleans forward Anthony Davis ($11,400) all in action, FanDuel owners can look to build their team around one player especially with Cleveland forward LeBron James ($9,900) reportedly being rested by head coach Tyronn Lue. This will make for some interesting decisions as FanDuel players fill out their rosters.
