Welcome to the Badger Herald live blog. I’m Brett Sommers, Statistics Editorat the Badger Herald, alongside Sports Content Editor Kelly Erickson. We will bebringing you all of tonight’s Game 2 action between Wisconsin and Alaska Anchorage from the Kohl Center.Friday night the Badgers (11-10-1, 6-9-2 WCHA) controlled the game throughout against the Seawolves (6-13-2, 3-13-1 WCHA), scoring in every period on the way to a 4-0 victory. The biggest story of the night was another lock down performance by UW freshman goalie Joel Rumpel, who secured his second shutout in three games. After being quiet on offense recently the top two Wisconsin offensive weapons, junior defenseman Justin Schultz and sophomore center Mark Zengerle, each tallied three points in the victory. Each finished the game with one goal and two assists. Heading into tonight’s game, Wisconsin looks to reach two games above .500 for the first time all season in an effort to climb higher in the WCHA standings.Stay tuned for all of tonight’s action.&lt;a href=”http://www.coveritlive.com/mobile.php/option=com_mobile/task=viewaltcast/altcast_code=fa21935c04″ &gt;Wisconsin vs. Alaska Anchorage Game 2&lt;/a&gt;
After frustrating NBA DFS players with post-lock lineup changes over the past couple of weeks, the Suns seem to have gotten their shenanigans out of the way early Tuesday, already ruling leading scorers Devin Booker and T.J. Warren out for tonight’s games.Those injury announcements should have a ripple effect through a five-game slate previously devoid of many high-quality value plays. We’ll help you decide who to start and who to fade in our latest installment of FanDuel cash game advice. MORE: SN DFS | Player UpdatesAs part of our multi-step lineup approach, we used Fantasy Alarm’s premium features to analyze points allowed by position and projected point values. Below are the conclusions of that research.Tonight’s FanDuel NBA DFS lineup: Pick advice, sleepers for Tuesday, Dec. 4FAVORITE VALUE — PG Corey Joseph, Pacers vs. Bulls ($4,400). The Bulls are a complete trainwreck right now, and the immediate aftermath of Fred Hoiberg’s firing is the perfect time to take advantage of their defensive ineptitude. Joseph has been a pretty safe bet to reach 20 FD points on a nightly basis since Victor Oladipo went down, and he’s even gotten above 30 FD points twice in as many weeks. Among cheap point guards on this slate, there are few options who can provide as much cash game comfort.STUD TO STICK WITH — PG Damian Lillard, Trail Blazers @ Dallas ($9,900). Lillard costs way more than anyone else at point guard in this slate, but he’s worthy of your investment, going for at least 59 FD points in two of the past three games. Pair him with Joseph and prosper. STAR TO AVOID — SG Donovan Mitchell, Jazz vs. Spurs ($8,500). Mitchell is in play for GPP formats, but he’s likely too boom-or-bust at this price point to consider him for cash games. He just isn’t passing the eye test right now, missing too many shots he would have hit last year and seemingly forcing things at times. Because of the sheer volume of shots he puts up, he’ll provide DFS value on many nights, but counting on him Tuesday in what should be a grind-it-out game against San Antonio probably isn’t the best move.TAKE A CHANCE ON ME — PF Domantas Sabonis, Pacers vs. Bulls ($7,700). We were burned by Montrezl Harrell on Monday behind similar thinking, but we’re confident Sabonis can deliver the goods as a high-floor power forward option, especially on an evening without elite options like Blake Griffin or Anthony Davis. According to Basketball Reference, Sabonis actually plays center about 80 percent of his time he’s on the floor, which is important because the Bulls are the worst team in the NBA against that position. Sabonis is also coming off his worst performance since Oladipo got injured, which might scare people off him despite scoring 35-plus FD points in six of the past eight games.INJURY PLAY — PF Josh Jackson, Suns vs. Kings ($5,600). If you didn’t read our extended blurb on Jackson last Friday, here’s a succinct version: Play him until he does something to suggest you shouldn’t. An uptick in performance level has coincided with injuries to Devin Booker and T.J. Warren, leaving Jackson as one of the primary ball handlers of the Suns offense. Against the fast-paced Kings, he has plenty of upside. Center Deandre Ayton ($6,800) and small forward Mikal Bridges ($4,300) are also decent plays from this game.
