NBA DFS value pick for April 19

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

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

Back on track.

Yesterday’s pick put in work: 18 points, 15 rebounds, 1 block, and 1 steal. That’s a W.

I’m now 6-7. Let’s even it up tonight.

Pick: Oklahoma City Thunder shooting guard Victor Oladipo

FanDuel price: $4,900

DraftKings price: $5,300

Opponent: Houston Rockets

Oladipo was atrocious in Game One, scoring just 6 points on 1/12 from the field. His price dropped accordingly, and now I think he’s a bargain.

The bottom line: OKC needs Vic to show up if they want to compete (unless Russ goes for 80 points - not entirely ruling this out). They’ve beaten the Rockets once in five tries this season. In that victory, Oladipo had 29 points, 10 rebounds, and 5 assists. So yeah, he’s capable of getting buckets against this team.

I’m assuming the Thunder want to win tonight, so I’m also assuming Victor comes ready to go. I can guarantee one thing: the dude won’t shoot 8% from the field again...

Let’s get it.

FanDuel success line: 23

DraftKings success line: 25
