NBA DFS value pick for April 16

Here’s one player you can get at a bargain in daily fantasy.

NBA: Oklahoma City Thunder at Houston Rockets Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

SO CLOSE.

Yesterday’s pick nearly reached the established success lines in just 30 minutes, scoring 20 points and grabbing 6 rebounds (30.2 FanDuel score, 30.5 DraftKings score). But an L is an L.

I’m 5-5 on the year, 0-1 in the playoffs. Let’s try again.

Pick: Houston Rockets forward Trevor Ariza

FanDuel price: $5,500

DraftKings price: $5,900

Opponent: Oklahoma City Thunder

The Rockets rely heavily on Trevor Ariza to spread the floor, pull down rebounds, and play solid defense. He finished in the top 20 in minutes per game this season, so expect him to get ample time during the playoffs.

And the man has brought it against Russ and the Thunder. The last time these two teams met, Ariza recorded a casual 24 points, 6 rebounds, 6 assists, 1 block, and 3 steals, shooting 82% from the field. That’s good for a 46.2 FanDuel score and 50.5 DraftKings score. Not bad.

Anyone else hungry? Let’s eat.

FanDuel success line: 26

DraftKings success line: 28
