Big Wednesday night slate of NBA action with 11 games on the schedule. Due to the big schedule, the experts are very spread out on who they are recommending with only one Highly Touted player today. Should be another high scoring night with only one double-digit favorite (Spurs) and only one game with a Vegas Total under 200 (Jazz/Raptors).

Be sure to check back about a half hour before tipoff for our “NBA Consensus Lineup Construction” article for some sample FanDuel and DraftKing lineups to consider for tonight.

The numbers in the parenthesis are the number of experts that picked that player to give you more context as to the gaps between players and the tiers. Here are the Industry Consensus picks for tonight…

Highly Touted

  • Dwight Howard (8x) – Coming off a game with 30 points and 13 rebounds and a juicy matchup with the Pelicans tonight


  • Chris Paul (6x) – Double-double in 6 of his last 7 games and should be involved in a high scoring close game against the Thunder
  • Matt Barnes (6x) – Scored 16 points in back-to-back games and gets a good matchup against the Kings tonight
  • Russell Westbrook (6x) – Put up another triple-double on Monday and should be a close high scoring game tonight against the Clippers
  • D’Angelo Russell (5x) – Scored career-high 39 points last night and still reasonably priced
  • James Harden (5x) – Stud player in a favorable matchup against the Pelicans
  • Will Barton (5x) – Everyone liked him last game with Danilo Gallinari out but he only had a 9-6-4 line, he should fare better tonight against the Lakers
  • Nikola Jokic (5x) – Could be lower-owned tonight averaging just 7.3 points and 7.0 rebounds over his last 3 games
  • Markieff Morris (5x) – Made first start for the Wizards on Monday and put up 16 points and 13 rebounds
  • Anthony Davis (5x) – Will be a game time decision tonight, strong play against the Rockets if he is active
  • Eric Gordon (5x) – Returned to the lineup with a bang on Monday dropping 31 points
  • Paul George (5x) – Has scored at least 20 points in 10 of his last 11 games 


  • John Wall (4x) – Averaging 27.0 points, 10.3 assists and 6.3 rebounds over his last 3 games
  • Kevin Durant (4x) – Three straight games with 30+ points and 10+ rebounds
  • Zach LaVine (4x) – Averaging 35 minutes over last 5 games and still reasonably priced
  • Isaiah Thomas (4x) – At home in a high Vegas total
  • Aaron Gordon (4x) – Looking for a bounce-back game after only playing 19 minutes last night due to foul trouble
  • Victor Oladipo (4x) – Had one of his worst games of the season last night, expert think he will bounce back tonight against the Bulls
  • Kawhi Leonard (4x) – Averaging 28 points and 6.5 rebounds in his last 2 games
  • Trevor Ariza (4x) – Coming off one of his best games of the season with 20 points, 11 assists and 8 rebounds
  • Mike Conley (3x)
  • Bobby Portis (3x)
  • Jordan Clarkson (3x)
  • Kemba Walker (3x)
  • DeMarcus Cousins (3x)
  • Khris Middleton (3x)
  • Jared Sullinger (3x)
  • Jae Crowder (3x)
  • LaMarcus Aldridge (3x)
