We have a three-game main NBA DFS slate on SuperDraft Thursday. Below, we’ll dive in and break down our three top plays of the slate.

Kemba Walker, PG, New York Knicks (1.5x score multiplier)

Walker returned to action Tuesday, and it looked like he didn’t miss a step. He logged 29 minutes and recorded 19 points, four assists and two rebounds against Minnesota. Now, on a three-game slate, he sits at a 1.5x multiplier, and that’s too good to pass up. It will be a slower game environment as the Knicks average 96.4 possessions per game and the Pelicans average 99.5. The bright spot of this matchup is just how bad the Pelicans are against guards. They give up on average 23.2 points, 7.6 assists and 6.7 rebounds per game. It’s a matchup made for Kemba Walker.

Steph Curry, PG, Golden State Warriors (1.05x)

Curry might be the best big-name player on this slate. With not many on it, Curry stands out in a good matchup spot. Using the FTN Daily advanced DvP tool, he should see a boost as the primary ball-handler and scorer versus the Indiana Pacers. The Pacers give up an average of 42.77 points to opposing guards that see a similar boost. Using the FTN Daily Splits tool, Curry does see a slight boost in rebounds and assists with Draymond Green out, which will be the situation for the next two weeks and possibly longer.

Mitchell Robinson, C, New York Knicks (1.6x)

A Knicks stack may be the way to run on this three-game slate, as Robinson sits at a 1.6x multiplier. The Knicks big man is averaging 8.2 points and 8.1 rebounds per game with 25 minutes of court time. He should be able to feast on the Pelicans’ defense as they aren’t the best against centers. They currently allow them to average 23.4 points and 13.5 rebounds per game. A double-double opportunity is in reach here with this matchup.
