Boston Celtics @ Toronto Raptors

At Noon (eastern), we have the Celtics and Raptors in Toronto. Pascal Siakam (groin) is still out indefinitely and Marc Gasol (hamstring) has now joined him on the injury report. Boston is still without Marcus Smart (eye) and Gordon Hayward (foot) is listed as probable. Toronto will also be without Norman Powell (shoulder).

Kyle Lowry, Fred VanVleet and Serge Ibaka will carry the load for the Raptors. Rondae Hollis-Jefferson  is our top projected FanDuel value play on Toronto. On DraftKings it’s RHJ or OG Anunoby – take your pick.

For the Celtics, it’s business as usual for Kemba Walker, Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown. Daniel Theis is our top projected value play with the Raptors frontcourt banged up.

This game has the lowest over/under at just 212.5 and Boston is three point favorites.

Milwaukee Bucks @ Philadelphia 76ers

Following that game, we stay in the Eastern Conference when the Bucks head to Philadelphia to take on the Sixers. The injury reports are pretty clean for both teams.

Our projections like Khris Middleton on both DraftKings and FanDuel. Giannis Antetokounmpo‘s salary is over $11k on both sites.

None of the 76ers jump out as great value plays on FanDuel, but Al Horford at $6k on DraftKings is a nice play. Joel Embiid is projected to hit 50 on both sites, while Ben Simmons is in the 40’s.

James Ennis at $3k is now projected to hit 6x value on DraftKings.

Houston Rockets @ Golden State Warriors

The final three games of the day feature all West Coast teams.

Around 5:00 PM EST, the Houston Rockets will tip off against the Golden State Warriors as 11 point road favorites. This one is going to be ugly.

James Harden is the most expensive player on both sites, in the upper $11k range, but Russell Westbrook is under $10k. Both are projected for 50+ points.

Danuel House and Willie Cauley-Stein should provide some nice value here.

Los Angeles Clippers @ Los Angeles Lakers

Then at 8:00 PM EST, we have the game of the night – Los Angeles vs Los Angeles!

Both LeBron James (back) and Anthony Davis (knee) are expected to play in this one. AD is $10k on both sites while LBJ is just under.

Our projections love where Paul George is priced on both sites. Kawhi Leonard is nearly $1k more.

Lou Williams and Montrezl Harrell are the projected value plays in this contest.

There should be plenty of Fantasy points to go around in this contest – 222.5 o/u and the Lakers are two point home favorites.

New Orleans Pelicans @ Denver Nuggets

All I want for Christmas is for Zion Williamson to make his NBA debut!

Nikola Jokic and Brandon Ingram are the top projected players from this game.

Paul Millsap is the top projected player on both DraftKings and FanDuel.

Vegas has this one at 218.5 o/u with the Nuggets nine and a half point favorites.
