Daily Fantasy NBA value pick: Eric Gordon

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

NBA: Playoffs-Oklahoma City Thunder at Houston Rockets Erik Williams-USA TODAY Sports

It’s been a rough stretch.

Yesterday’s pick started off strong, but was basically a ghost in the second half. Tough.

I’m now 10-13 and struggling to sleep at night. Let’s turn things around.

Pick: Houston Rockets shooting guard Eric Gordon

FanDuel price: $5,000

DraftKings price: $4,900

Opponent: San Antonio Spurs

Gordon is priced modestly for Game 1 against San Antonio, despite a solid first round series against the Thunder. The opportunity is there - the sharpshooter has played an average of 33.2 minutes in the postseason. No reason that should go down, given the success his team has found.

Houston is going to need production off the bench against a sturdy Spurs defense. I’m banking on EG to deliver.

This one is big. It’s not a must-win, but it’s pretty darn close. LET’S GET IT.

FanDuel success line: 22

DraftKings success line: 22
