The Indiana Pacers travel to California for a matchup with the Los Angeles Clippers. Let’s take a look at this NBA game from a DFS perspective.

Before we dive into the Indiana Pacers vs. Los Angeles Clippers game, let’s review the rules for FanDuel single game showdown contest.

FanDuel Single Game Contest Rules

Here are the single game contest rules. You have $60,000 to utilize on five players from either team. However, one of those players will be designated as your team MVP. The MVP accumulates 2x times the standard FanDuel fantasy points value.

The remaining four players in your lineup will be the star, pro, and flex plays. The star player will receive 1.5x the standard fantasy points value. The pro player will accumulate 1.2x the standard fantasy points value.

The final two flex positions will receive the standard points value. Having stated that, it is important for you to identify the correct player for your MVP position if you hope to win a FanDuel single game contest.

If you have additional questions regarding the rules for the single game contest, I highly recommend that you check out the FanDuel website for more details.

Here are my FanDuel player Selections for tonight’s Indiana Pacers vs. Los Angeles Clippers matchup.

FanDuel Player Picks

MVP-Paul George $9,800

Los Angeles Clippers small forward Paul George has certainly been a key contributor to this Clippers team all season. Let me be more specific. Through 70 games played this season, Clippers forward Paul George has averaged 22.5 points, 5.3 rebounds, 3.6 assists, 0.9 blocks, and 1.8 steals a game.

Looking at the data I just presented even closer I observed that Paul George has averaged a whopping 39.3 total FanDuel points scored a game. Those are the type of numbers I want from the MVP position.

Later today, George draws a defense that has had significant problems with allowing fantasy points to the small forward position. In the last 15 games played in the NBA, the Indiana Pacers are ranked 23rd in total FanDuel points (42.21) allowed a game to the small forward position.

Star-Tyrese Haliburton $10,000

Indiana Pacers point guard Tyrese Haliburton has quickly ascended to one of the most talented guards in the NBA. Let’s dive into a recent sample size of Haliburton’s recent statistical data to get a better idea of his recent performance on the basketball court.

In his last three games played, Haliburton has averaged a whopping averaged 19.3 points, 3.6 rebounds, 10 assists, 3 steals, and 1 block a game. Clearly, the Pacers offense runs through Tyrese Haliburton.

Pro-Russell Westbrook $9,000

Earlier this month, Los Angeles Clippers point guard Russell Westbrook suffered an injury in a game with the Washington Wizards. The unfortunate injury just noted resulted in Westbrook missing the Clippers last 12 games.

Tonight, Russell Westbrook is set to return to the Los Angeles Clippers starting lineup. Prior to his injury, Westbrook was averaging 11.1 points, 5.1 rebounds, 4.4 steals, and 1.1 blocks a game.

Additionally, I think Westbrook’s rather low FanDuel price ($9,000) presents outstanding value to the sharp DFS player. Why? The answer is simple. Westbrook’s potential FanDuel points ceiling is much higher relative to his price point of any other player on this one game slate.

Flex plays I like to play well: Kawhi Leonard $14,500: Myles Turner $11,500: Ivica Zubac $10,000.
