There are eight games on the NBA schedule
for Wednesday, with Oklahoma City
guard Russell Westbrook ($12,500) and Houston
guard James Harden ($12,000) both in action. Add in New Orleans
forward Anthony Davis ($11,200), and three players averaging more than 50 FanDuel points per night are available for DFS participants to choose. Harden's in action for a second consecutive night (as is Davis), but in the case of elite players such as Harden the back-to-back setup isn't a big deal productivity-wise. Wednesday will be Houston's sixth back-to-back of the season to date, with Harden thus far having better scoring and rebounding averages in the first game than the second.
In the first game of a back-to-back this season, Harden's averaged 26.6 points, 13.2 assists and 9.8 rebounds
per outing. And in the second game of back-to-backs, Harden's averaged 24.4 points, 13.4 assists and 8.6 rebounds per contest. One night after taking on the Spurs at home the Rockets hit the road to face the Phoenix Suns, a team the Rockets have yet to play this season. Phoenix is currently ranked 29th in the NBA in scoring defense and 24th in defensive rating
, and with Houston being as good as they've been offensively this sets up to be a good night for Harden.
Here are our picks for tonight's games, using the FanDuel rules of a nine-player roster and a $60,000 salary cap. (Getty)
