The start of a new week means new beginnings when it comes to our Underdog Fantasy NBA pick'em plays over on Fantasy Alarm. We had quite the week last week, going 9-2 with our Underdog Fantasy NBA pick’em top plays and we will look to keep the winning ways going with today’s six game NBA main slate. This slate features two specific games we are targeting tonight as the Los Angeles Clippers take on the Atlanta Hawks and the Golden State Warriors take on the Brooklyn Nets!


Underdog Fantasy NBA Pick'em Top Plays

Onyeka Okongwu, C Atlanta Hawks

If you have followed any of the NBA content here at Fantasy Alarm then you know that we have a high opinion of Okongwu and feel that he eventually will take over as the starting center in place of Clint Capela. That takeover may happen sooner rather than later now that Capela is going to miss the next 7-to-10 days due to injury. Okongwu is averaging 9.6 points per game this season over 25 minutes but in three games as a starter on the year he is averaging 16.3 points per game. He played 36 minutes the other night in place of the injured Clint Capela and finished with 22 points. Today he faces a Clippers team that has historically struggled defensively against opposing centers and will be on the second leg of a back-to-back where starting center Ivica Zubac may sit as he just returned from injury. Let’s ride a highly productive Hawks center tonight.

Pick: Higher than 12.5 Points 

Brandin Podziemski, SG Golden State Warriors

The Warriors first round wing is having a great rookie season, especially in the starting lineup this season where he is averaging 11.1 points, 6.9 rebounds and 4.1 assists per game. With Chris Paul still sidelined and now Andrew Wiggins injured, the opportunities to fill the stat sheet while playing alongside Stephen Curry has been something to watch, especially over the last two games where Podziemski has back-to-back double-doubles. Scoring 12 points with seven rebounds and 14 assists against the Grizzlies and then going for 15 points, 11 rebounds and five assists against the Hawks. Tonight the Warriors face the Nets, a team that does struggle defensively, especially against opposing wing players. Given the increased opportunity for playing time and his ability to fill the stat sheet. We are going to look for another strong overall performance from this year’s 19th overall pick.

Pick: Higher than 23.5 Pts+Rebs+Asts
