Daily Fantasy NBA value pick: Austin Rivers

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

NBA: Playoffs-Los Angeles Clippers at Utah Jazz Chris Nicoll-USA TODAY Sports

We’re back.

Friday’s pick got the job done, recording 8 points, 8 rebounds, 3 assists, and 2 steals. Much needed W.

Let’s ride the momentum.

Pick: Los Angeles Clippers guard Austin Rivers

FanDuel price: $3,300

DraftKings price: $4,000

Opponent: Utah Jazz

Two greatest words in sports: Game 7. It’s make or break, do or die, win or go home. Guys will show up ready to play.

Rivers missed the first 4 games of the series with a hamstring injury and struggled to get going in his return to action for Game 5. But that didn’t stop Doc from moving him into the starting lineup Friday night - a move that paid off when Austin dropped 13 points on an efficient 5/10 from the field.

With Griffin out, LA really needs Rivers’ scoring. Expect him to get significant run and take a significant amount of shots.

The price is still low. Too low. Time to eat.

FanDuel success line: 17

DraftKings success line: 20
