Update (6:40 PM) - Updates have been made. Fading both Westbrook & George and going for that big Irving/Leonard game. Image updated! Good Luck!
We continued our recent hot streak and started off the week on the right note as our 319.75-point performance had us cashing in both our GPP’s & 50/50’s last night! We had solid production across the board led by LeBron James (63.5 points), Luka Doncic (59.5 points), and Kelly Olynyk (49 points).
Let’s continue racking up wins as we take a look at our NBA DraftKings lineup tonight for the 3-game “Main” slate that starts at 7:30pm.
As I’ve been doing more lately, I’m just posting the images of my initial lineup as we generally will be making changes as the day goes on.
It’s a tough 3-game slate tonight and I’m sure I’ll be reevaluating throughout the day.
The biggest question we’ll all have is if we want to make room for Russell Westbrook and/or Paul George which is going to be pretty tough on this small slate.
As of right now, I’m not rostering either as neither Westbrook or George have hit 5x value based on their current prices against the Nuggets in their previous two games this year.
The ORL/NYK match-up is going to see a lot of action tonight and we currently have 3 players on our roster for this match-up. We’ll have to keep an eye out on DeAndre Jordan’s status as we’ll make some adjustments if he is able to play tonight after missing his last game due to an ankle injury.
I don’t hate the BOS/TOR game and decided to spend up for each team’s star in Boston’s Kyrie Irving & Toronto’s Kawhi Leonard. In the last match-up between these two teams, Irving & Leonard combined for a monster 113.25 DraftKings points (Irving: 63.75 / Leonard: 49.5).
I’m also rostering Al Horford who has been playing outstanding as of late as he has topped 49.5 DraftKings points in 3 of his last 4 games.
For Denver, we’re going to be rostering Paul Millsap and Isaiah Thomas. Millsap is still a decent price on DraftKings and has been dominating as of late as he is averaging 51.6 DraftKings points over his last three games. Thomas is finally playing basketball again and I think he has some nice value tonight in what should be a fast-paced match-up. Thomas saw 24 minutes in his last game against the Clippers and if he is going to see 20-35 minutes, he should hit value for us at a price-tag of just $3,800.
As always, I’ll be back taking a long look later in the day as the slate gets closer and I’ll post any adjustments by 7:00pm. If there are any really last-minute changes (which always happens basically every NBA slate…haha), I’ll post the image directly to my Twitter account (@BrettCU05).
Have a great Tuesday!
