Brook Lopez, C, Brooklyn Nets

FanDuel Price: $7,700

Brook Lopez finished the first half with a bang, hanging 36 points and 60.3 FanDuel points on the Milwaukee Bucks, which put his FanDuel average over his last 5 games at 39.2 points.

He'll look to continue his recent surge in what should be a high-scoring game between the Brooklyn Nets and Denver Nuggets. The over/under in this one is set at 231 points, which is the highest on the slate by a large margin. Despite being double-digit underdogs, Brooklyn's 111-point implied team total is still rather hefty.

According to the RotoViz Game Splits App, Lopez has played much better in projected shootouts this season. In games with an over/under above 220 points, the big fella has averaged 35 FanDuel points, as opposed to 32.6 in all other games.

In addition to that, Lopez should dominate the paint. Not only does Denver rank dead last in defensive efficiency, they have allowed the highest points per possession in the post. Lopez trails only Marc Gasol and DeMarcus Cousins in points in the post this season, and his 53.5% field goal percentage in the post is easily the highest among qualified players.

Lopez should have no trouble scoring against Denver, just as Willie Cauley-Stein did last night, when he posted a career-high 29 points on them.
