Disclosure: Remember, even though FanDuel sponsors this post, all the opinions and insights are my own. FanDuel has given me a little bit of money to start playing already.

So here are my insights for you this week in FanDuel:

Best Night to Play
We've got a really busy week in the NBA. You have three really great days to play: Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. Wednesday has nine games while Friday and Saturday both have ten games. That's a really big pool of players to choose from for your roster.

Heat Player Notes
The Heat play three games this week: Wednesday vs Indiana, Friday @ Atlanta and Sunday vs Milwaukee. So we have a couple favorable match-ups, but remember it's all for the right price playing FanDuel.

I like the Dwyane Wade matchup at home against Indiana. The Pacers will still be without George Hill, and Rodney Stuckey and C.J. Miles aren't known for their defense. What has had success against the Pacers, and I think at home with two days of rest -- Wade will have a good night. Wade is usually an expensive player, but with the turmoil the Pacers are in, this is a good play for him.

I'd stay away from any power player for the Heat on Friday in Atlanta. With Paul Millsap and Al Horford, they are going to clog a lot of the rebounds, probably cause foul trouble and create problems for the Heat. I would even be hesitant to play Chris Bosh here even though he will still end up with a good game.

And on Sunday against Milwaukee, it's really a toss-up. There again Luol Deng could be a bargain going up against a rookie but it's really hard to tell.

Best Matchup
Wednesday night, Anthony Davis vs L.A. Lakers. The Lakers are really bad, and Anthony Davis is really good, like MVP good. Davis is averaging over 24 PPG and nearly 13 RPG, AND getting over 4 BPG. They guy does it all, and I can promise you the Lakers are not going to stop him from doing it.

Last week, I told you that your best match-up was Chris Paul vs Utah, and he ended up dropping a triple double on them.
