It is the final night of the NBA Play-In Tournament, so there are two games on the DFS slate. It is win or go home for these teams, so if a player is able to go, they should be on the floor. However, the increased stakes, along with the small slate size, can make things tough to win in Fantasy NBA.
However, No House Advantage brings gamers a different twist on NBA DFS. NHA offers props for various players at different point levels. The optimal way to win prop bets is by utilizing the Awesemo No House Advantage NBA projections to find the biggest discrepancy between the NHA prop and the tool itself. Let’s go over some NBA picks today for tonight’s slate and dive into some of the No House Advantage prop picks.
No House Advantage: NBA Picks Today | April 15
Rajon Rondo: OVER 3.5 Assists
The Cavaliers are overall inexperienced. They need veterans Kevin Love and Rajon Rondo to step up for them to have any kind of chance to advance and play well in the NBA Playoffs. The reason Rondo is on this team is for the playoffs, which is shown by his role last game. Rondo played 26 minutes last game and he should play a fair amount again tonight. For what it is worth, Awesemo projects Rondo to play less than 10 minutes, but that does not make any sense for this team.
Even in limited time this season, Rondo has averaged 4.5 assists per game. He has totaled over 3.5 assists in four straight games, including 22 assists over the past two games. Look for him to hit the over once again.
Darius Garland: Over 22.5 Points
The Hawks’ Achilles heel all season long has been their defense, ranking as the fifth worst in the NBA in defensive efficiency. It could be a problem once again tonight when they try to contain Darius Garland. This season, Garland has faced the Hawks twice and has averaged 24 points against them. He put up 34 points during the first play-in matchup. Garland played in a blowout of the Bucks’ B-team in the regular-season finale but averaged 25.5 points in the 20 games prior.
The Awesemo NBA Player Props Tool projects Garland for 24.9 points tonight, easily going over this NHA prop.

Jonas Valanciunas: Over 11.5 Rebounds
The big man will be needed for the Pelicans today, as the Clippers have the size to battle down low as well. Jonas Valanciunas has fared quite well against the Clippers this season. Across four matchups, he has averaged 22.8 points and 13.3 rebounds. Tonight the game is projected to be relatively low-scoring, likely featuring quite a few missed shots like both teams saw in their first play-in games. Assuming this becomes reality, it means an increased opportunity for rebounds.
The Awesemo NBA Player Prop Betting Stat Projections list Valanciunas for 12.87 rebounds tonight.
