Wednesday night brings three more Game 2 matchups, but unlike Tuesday, all three home teams won Game 1. Letís get right down to business and take a look at some of the players to consider across the price scale for your FanDuel entry.



John Wall, WAS vs. ATL ($10,300): Wall crushed the Hawks in Game 1 as he scored 56.8 FanDuel points. He also had a nice performance the last time these two teams met in the regular season about a month ago when he scored 47.4 FanDuel points. Wall provides a ton of assists to go along with his scoring and should be well worth this price again Wednesday.

Bradley Beal, WAS vs. ATL ($7,300): Beal put up a solid performance in Game 1 as he scored 33.1 FanDuel points. He entered the playoffs on a high note, having scored 30.5 FanDuel points in five straight games. Expect him to log heavy minutes again in Game 2 and provide plenty of offense.

Patrick Beverley, HOU vs. OKC ($5,200): Beverley put up 21 points and 10 rebounds in Game 1 on his way to 39.5 FanDuel points. Known as an excellent defender, Beverley has actually scored at least 31.1 FanDuel points in three of his last four games. Cheap value plays are tougher to find in the playoffs, but Beverley is just that Wednesday.



Draymond Green, GS vs. POR ($7,500): Green tends to step up in the playoffs and he didnít disappoint in Game 1 as he scored a whopping 61.9 FanDuel points. Not only did he finish one assist shy of a triple-double, but he also provided five blocks and three steals. The Trail Blazers allowed the fourth most FanDuel points to opposing power forwards in the regular season, so expect Green to take advantage of them again Wednesday.

Markieff Morris, WAS vs. ATL ($6,000): Morris played 38 minutes in Game 1 and came through with 40.4 FanDuel points. Although Wall and Beal are clearly the two best offensive weapons on the Wizards, Morris managed to average 14.0 points per game this season. He should see plenty of action again in Game 2, making him a nice mid-tier option.

Otto Porter, WAS vs. ATL ($5,000): Porter did not have a great Game 1 as he only scored 23.8 FanDuel points. However, it wasnít due to a lack of playing time as he logged 32 minutes. This is a nice matchup for him as the Hawks allowed the second most FanDuel points to opposing small forwards during the regular season. The price is right to take a chance on him Wednesday.



Dwight Howard, ATL at WAS ($7,300): There arenít many great options at center Wednesday and even at this price, Howard is the most expensive player at the position. He only scored seven points in Game 1, but he did grab 14 rebounds on his way to 28.3 FanDuel points. Although heís not the offensive weapon that he once was, he still had a solid season as he averaged 13.5 points and 12.7 rebounds per game. Expect him to at least approach a double-double Wednesday.

Clint Capela, HOU vs. OKC ($5,900): Howard is the most expensive center Wednesday, but Capela could end up being the most productive. He scored 31.4 FanDuel points in Game 1 despite playing only 25 minutes. Limited minutes is usually not a problem for him though as he averaged 12.6 points, 8.1 rebounds and 1.2 blocks in only 24 minutes per game this season. Capela presents a nice value option at this price for Game 2.
