DFS - NBA - DraftKings - Main Slate Lineup - 1/24/20
Friday, January 24th, 2019 at 7:00 PM
Let’s take a look at today’s DraftKings NBA “Main Slate” lineup that features 10 games and starts at 7:00pm!
Kicking off our lineup tonight, we’re going to go with a 2-man stack of Boston Celtics in Marcus Smart & Gordon Hayward in their road match-up against the Orlando Magic.
Boston will be without Jaylen Brown, Jayson Tatum, and Enes Kanter tonight so despite the less than ideal match-up against an Orlando team that likes to move at a snail’s pace, you have to like the extra usage that Smart & Hayward will see tonight.
Detroit will be without both Andre Drummond & Bruce Brown tonight which makes Derrick Rose almost a must play in my opinion.
Rose has turned back the clock as of late and looks like that player that was once MVP of this league. Rose is averaging 39.8 DraftKings points over his last five games and as he has a good match-up agianst the Memphis Grizzlies tonight, I think Rose is could top 50+ DraftKings points tonight.
Staying with the Pistons, with Drummond out, Christian Wood has some nice value at just $4,700 as he should see around 25 minutes tonight and on multiple occasions this season, has shown some major upside offensively.
Thaddeus Young should be a popular play tonight as the Bulls will be extremely thin in their front court with Otto Porter, Lauri Markkanen, Daniel Gafford, & Wendell Carter Jr. all listed as out. Young will get all the minutes he can handle tonight and shouldn’t have a problem hitting value.
Staying in this match-up, the Kings are also hurting in their front court with both Marvin Bagley & Richaun Holmes out with injury. Dewayne Dedmon hasn’t lived up to expectations this season, but as he should see another 30 or so minutes tonight, that is too much value to pass up on at a price of just $3,900.
Miami has a bunch of injury concerns tonight as Dunn, Dragic & Butler are all questionable currently. As I think at least two of these players don’t take the floor tonight, Tyler Herro could have some of the best value on the slate.
Rounding out our team, with the value we were able to get, we’re going to be able to pay up for James Harden in his nice match-up against the fast-paced Minnesota Timberwolves.
