Update (6:09 PM) - Hi Everyone! Made some updates! I decided to go with Brogdon & Antetokounmpo in their solid match-up at Washington. If Washington can make this is a game, their is going to be a lot of points scored in this one and these two should have monster games with Eric Bledsoe already ruled out. We're going with some value with some Denver players as Murray & Harris have already been ruled out and we still have Vucevic in his good match-up against Brooklyn. Image is updated! Good Luck!
It’s the weekend and we ended the week with a decent performance as our 327.5 DraftKings point performance had us cashing in our 50/50’s.
We have a huge 11-game slate NBA slate tonight that starts at 7:00pm.
Let’s take a look at our initial DraftKings lineup, however, I’m sure we’ll be making some changes as the day goes on.
At the PG & SG positions, I’m currently going with a couple of mid-range options in Atlanta’s Trae Young & San Antonio’s Derrick White.
Young has been outstanding as of late as over his last 4-game, he is averaging 26.8 ppg, 8.3 apg, & 2.5 rpg. Young has a great match-up agianst the Phoenix Suns who rank just 28th vs. opposing SG’s on the season and as has posted 40+ DraftKings point performances in 3 of his last 4 games.
Derrick White I think has great value tonight in his matchup against the Pelicans who have really struggled agianst opposing PG’s this season. White is averaging just 9.7 ppg, 3.4 rpg, & 3.6 apg on the season but has been playing much better as of late, as over his last 5 games, White is averaging 16.8 ppg, 4.4 rpg, 4.4 apg, 1.0 bpg, and 1.6 spg. White put up a monster 46.6 point performance against Brooklyn on Thursday in just 24 minutes of action and I think he’ll top 40+ DraftKings points tonight.
Cedi Osman has really stepped up as of late for the Cavaliers as over this past 4 games, Osman is averaging 24.3 ppg, 6.3 rpg, 3.8 apg, & 1.5 spg in 36.8 mpg. Osman posted an incredible 49.25 DraftKings point performance agianst the Wizards earlier this week and it seems that he is being more aggressive on the offensive end, I think he has great value in his match-up against the Mavericks tonight.
Darius Miller will continue to have solid value with all the injuries that the Pelicans currently have and similar Morris, has seen an average of 38.5 mpg in his last two games. Miller has averaged 30+ DraftKings points in those two games, despite shooting just 34.6% from the field. Miller has huge upside if he is going to be putting up 10+ three-pointers per game and I think he has 40+ DraftKings point upside if he can get his shot to fall against the Spurs tonight.
Nikola Vucevic is having a career season with the Magic this year and he has a great opportunity to put up some big numbers tonight in a great match-up agianst the Brooklyn Nets. Vucevic has posted averages of 22.4 ppg, 12.2 rpg, 4.2 apg, 1.4 bpg, & 1.2 spg over his last 5 games and has a solid 58.0 DraftKings performance against the Nets just a couple of weeks ago.
I’m staying in the BKN/ORL match-up and going to go with the Nets who over his last 5 games, is averaging 23.4 ppg, 4.2 rpg, 6.8 apg, & 1.8 spg. Russell has posted 50+ DraftKings points in 4 of his last 7 games which included a 54.25 point performance agianst the Magic a few week back.
As of right now, as it looks like the Mavericks are going to be real short handed tonight again, I’m rounding out the team with some solid value with Dwight Powell & Jalen Brunson who both should see plenty of minutes in a good match-up tonight agianst the Cavaliers.
Check back later for updates!
