CBB DFS: The ONIONS – March 12th (Early)


Jaden Ivey – Purdue

I really can see Ivey taking over and ball hogging his way to a 40 burger in this game.  But make no mistake this is the biggest question I will have on this slate.  Ivey or Edey?  Back in late Feb in a Michigan State win it was Edey who went for 25 points but just 2 rebounds.  My gut leans on Ivey today having to take over as a tournament play style game should dictate his style more.

Kendric Davis – SMU

Davis had 39 FPTS vs Memphis in their last meeting and given the tempo boost that is certainly something that I can expect to repeat itself.  Both teams look really good right now.

  • Keegan Murray – Iowa
  • JD Notae – Arkansas – 8400
  • Kyler Edwards – Houston – 7600
  • Quenton Jackson – Texas A&M – 7300
  • Zach Edey – Purdue

Fade:  Oscar Tshiebwe


DeAndre Williams – Memphis – 6200

Senior Forward has 30+ potential in him and probably is the lesser owned of the Memphis players today.

  • Tyson Walker – Michigan State – 5600
  • Tyrece Radford – Texas A&M _ 6600
  • TyTy Washington – Kentucky – 6100


AuDiese Toney – Arkansas – 5200

Wound up playing yesterday and having a hell of a game too.  Curious how the ankle responds to a back to back today with a really hot Aggies team on the other side, but 5200 is a steal for him.

  • Max Christie – Michigan State – 4400
  • Rob Phinisee – Indiana – 3300

Memphis vs SMU

Two white hot teams who can push the pace.

  • Memphis:    DeAndre Williams, Landers Nolley
  • SMU:   Kendric Davis

Indiana vs Iowa

Indiana magic continues today with another win and it’s going to be the 3 point shooting of … checks notes … Rob Phinisee (oh dear god)…

  • Indiana:  Rob Phinisee, Trayce Jackson-Davis
  • Iowa:  Tony Perkins, Keegan Murray

Texas A&M vs Arkansas

This game is the most likely one to be a little bananas.  Not sure how much more fight the Aggies have in them, but this game is definitely coming down to the wire.

  • Texas A&M:   Quenton Jackson, Tyrece Radford
  • Arkansas:    AuDiese Toney, JD Notae

Michigan State vs Purdue

The Spartans are finally becoming a trust worthy value team for DFS because nobody is really good and nobody is playing horrible right now, so we’ve got lots of guys in that 4k-5k window who are viable to make this a stack and I like the sneaky potential tempo in this game.

  • Sparty:  Max Christie, Tyson Walker
  • Boilermakers:  Zach Edey, Jaden Ivey

Games to Fade:

  • Kentucky vs Tennessee
  • Tulane vs Houston

The Onions! play is my favorite play on the slate to have a 6x or better game.

Jaden Ivey – Purdue

With the big men splitting minutes and based on who Michigan State has I would expect we see a little showcase effort from Ivey.


G:  AuDiese Toney (5200) – Arkansas

F:  DeAndre Williams (6200) – Memphis

UTIL:   Jaden Ivey (7700) – Purdue

VALUE:  Rob Phinessee (3100) – Indiana


  • Indiana +6.5
  • Texas A&M +5.5
  • Michigan State +6.5
  • Memphis/SMU over 141.5
  • Kentucky -2.5
