DFS - NBA - DraftKings - NBA Lineup - Main Slate - 8/26/20
Wednesday, August 26th, 2020 at 4:00 PM
The first round of the NBA playoffs continues today, and we have a great 3-game NBA slate that starts at 4:00pm today!
We are going to be going with a GPP lineup and let us look at our DraftKings lineup!
With our lineups today, we are going to be paying up for both James Harden & Giannis Antetokounmpo.
Harden & Antetokounmpo combined for about 130 DraftKings points on Monday and as I expect both these games to be competitive, I think the game plan for our GPP lineup is to go with both today as I see 70+ outings by both of them today.
In the ORL/MIL game, outside of Antetokounmpo, I am going to get some value with D.J. Augustin of the Orlando Magic and both George Hill & Brook Lopez of the Milwaukee Bucks.
Augustin is a great GPP play as he has 30-40 FanDuel point upside and I think he bounces back from a subpar Game 4.
Lopez has been seeing about 30 minutes per game and if he has his three-pointer going, he always brings 40+ FanDuel point upside to any game and at $5,500, he is one of my favorite plays on the slate.
Hill has posted 24+ DraftKings points in two of the four games in this series and I’m encouraged that his hamstring is feeling a bit better after going for 23 minutes in Game 4. Hill can score, rack up assists, and get steals and if he gets 25 minutes today, I think he can crush value at his $3,900 price tag.
Pairing with James Harden, I am going to be going with Daniel House Jr. of the Houston Rockets.
House has been outstanding this series, averaging over 30+ FanDuel points in his last three games and as his price as stayed under $5000, I think he brings some of the best value on the slate.
I am not in love with the POR/LAL game outside some of the value plays for the Trail Blazers. For Portland, I am going with Anfernee Simons & Mario Hezonja who I think both have some nice upside at low prices.
