Poll 100 random NBA fans and only 5-10 have probably even heard of Nwaba, but the second-year player has earned praise from coach Fred Hoiberg in the last two games for his hustle and energy. He is priced at $4,500 or less on both DraftKings and FanDuel, even after scoring over 28 DFS points in back-to-back games. The matchup against the Boston Celtics isn’t ideal, but Nwaba doesn’t just generate points by scoring; he gets them with rebounds, assists, steals and blocks. He’s a name to remember and a tremendous value tonight.
Baltimore (6-5) also kept its playoff hopes alive, sliding back in as the No. 6 seed in the AFC. Monday’s loss was a devastating blow for Houston’s playoff aspirations.
After Houston jumped out to a 7-0 lead, the Ravens responded with some trickery. Punter Sam Koch completed a 22-yard pass to Chris Moore to set up Buck Allen’s 10-yard touchdown run.
Shazier may never play football again. That doesn’t make him any less of a Steeler. And the men who have taken so much from him over the last three-plus years decided it was time they gave him something back in return: the AFC North title he ordered them to lock down without him.
Chris Boswell made a 46-yard field goal with 42 seconds left and Pittsburgh’s defense overcame a shaky night without their most dynamic player to shut down Baltimore’s last-gasp drive and hold on for a 39-38 victory on Sunday night to capture their third division title in the last four years.
The Vikings have racked up wins over the Rams, Saints and Falcons this season, and this is another chance for them to build their strong NFC resume as the new team to beat for the No. 1 playoff seed. When the Panthers can’t run, which teams don’t do on Minnesota, everything unravels offensively around Cam Newton. They also don’t force too many turnovers, and Case Keenum protects the ball. They also will have a ton of trouble covering both Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen.
