DFS - NBA - DraftKings - Main Slate Lineup - 1/31/20
Friday, January 31st, 2019 at 7:00 PM
Let’s take a look at today’s DraftKings NBA “Main Slate” lineup that features 7 games and starts at 7:00pm!
If you were like me tonight, your first thoughts probably were “Who from Dallas are we going to go with tonight knowing that Luka Doncic is out?”.
Initially, it seems that Kristaps Porzingis would be an easy answer, especially as his price is at just $6,400, however, the Mavericks have been taking it easy on their injury prone big man and it wasn’t encouraging in just 20 minutes last game, Porzingis was only able to put up 9 points, 3 rebounds, and an assist.
Instead of Porzingis, I’m actually just going to go with Jalen Brunson.
I was tempted to go with a more risky play in J.J. Barea or Seth Curry, however, Brunson was seeing 30+ minutes per game when Doncic was out earlier this season and even if this game become a blowout, I think Brunson will easily hit value at his $3,600 price tag.
Instead of stacking the value on the Mavericks, we’re going to go with a full 4-man stack of Memphis Grizzlies.
The Grizzlies as they have one of the better match-ups agianst the New Orleans Pelicans. The Over/Under currently for this match-up is at an incredible 241.5 points so it’s important you have plenty of action in this match-up.
For the Grizzlies, we’re going to pay up for three of their main offensive options in Ja Morant, Dillon Brooks and Jonas Valanciunas and get some extreme value with Solomon Hill who should see extra minutes tonight with Jaren Jackson Jr. suspended and Brandon Clarke doubtful due to injury.
Staying in this match-up, we’re going to pay up for Zion Williamson as the upside in this match-up is incredible and the Grizzlies should struggle even more agianst Williamson with Jalen Jackson Jr. not available. Williamson has been incredibly consistent in his four games this season (26.0+ DraftKings points in all four games) and as he is seeing closer to 30 minutes over the last two games, I like Williamson at his price point tonight.
Shai Gilgeous-Alexander has been incredible as of late, averaging 39.8 DraftKings points per game over his last five games and I’m going to continue to his value as he is just $6,700 and has a nice match-up against the Phoenix Suns tonight.
Rounding out our team, we’re going to pay up for LeBron James in his great match-up at home against the Portland Trailblazers.
