low five:

Point Guard: Jose Calderon, DAL ($5,100): Just keep beating up on Philadelphia.  Calderon needs just over 25 FPs for value tonight, and with plenty of points to go around and assists as well, Calderon should get value tonight at worst.

Shooting Guard: James Anderson, PHI ($4,300): If you’re a regular reader of my column, you know that I love James Anderson.  I think James Anderson benefits most from Evan Turner leaving town.  Needing just 21.5 FPs for value, I’m thinking Anderson gets that and then some tonight.

Small Forward: Gerald Wallace, BOS ($4,100): With Avery Bradley out again tonight, Wallace will draw the start tonight at SG vs. the Lakers, who rank 2nd to last against SGs over the last ten games.  Wallace needs just over 20 FPs to reach value, a number he bested last game out in a start, and a number he should have no problem beating again tonight.

Power Forward: Brandan Wright, DAL ($3,800): Wright has been playing really well lately and should do so again vs. the Sixers, just like everyone else does.  What really makes Wright a sneaky play though, is the increased minutes he’s likely to see in what is sure to be a blowout.  I would not be surprised if Wright gets close to 25 FPs tonight, and crushes his value threshold of 19 FPs.

Center: Kelly Olynyk, BOS ($3,700): Kelly Olynyk has been playing really well as of late, surpassing his current value threshold of 18.5 FPs in four out his last five games.  Tonight he gets a Los Angeles Lakers squad that is among the leagues worst against the center position, in what Vegas is saying will be one of the most competitive games of that night.  As such, I really like Olynyk as a value pick tonight, and I will be rostering him heavily.

Thank you and good luck tonight !!!
