Our Top DraftKings NBA Plays
DraftKings Salary – $8,800
We have a 50/50 split of Kemba Walker and Jrue Holiday lineups tonight. Both guys have great matchups, and have been chucking shots as of late. Over there last 5 games, Holiday is 3rd in FG attempts per game and Walker is 10th. We are giving Walker as our pick because his minutes are more predictable at this point. Both guys have a 30 point floor and 60 point ceiling, but we think they both push 50 tonight.
DraftKings Salary – $4,500
Green has been so hit or miss over the last month with the Clippers. Over his last 10 games, Green has 4 8x value games over 30 points and 4 games under 20 points including a 5 and an 8 point performance. Given Houston’s lack of perimeter defense, we are betting that this is an on night for Green, and expect a 7x 30 point showing.
DraftKings Salary – $10,600
DeMarcus Cousins is averaging 5x value for his $10,600 salary at home this season. Looking at the matchup, he is averaging 61.5 PPG against New Orleans this season. That includes a monster 75 point DraftKings performance, with 40/16/4/4/1 just 9 days ago.
DraftKings Salary – $7,800
The Atlanta Hawks can not defend the Center position. At all. They have been in the bottom quarter of the NBA in defending the position over every stretch of this season. Drummond has averaged 52 PPG against the Hawks this season, and we are yet to pick on the Hawks with an opposing center and miss. Lock Drummond in at $7,800 and put a 50 spot (6x+ value) on the board.
DraftKings Salary – $3,500
Both of our punts tonight are going to come from the Grizzlies. The key for Memphis with all of these guys out is finding scoring, their system teaches defense and pace and they will remain a constant. To me, the Grizz are really only rolling out two scorers, McCallum and Martin. We loved McCallum with the Spurs and they clearly didn’t want to release him, but needed a veteran backup point guard for the playoffs. Look back at any stretch where Ray McCallum has seen consistent minutes, he stuffs the stat sheet. Look for him to be more comfortable with the Memphis offense and his role in it tonight against Minnesota.
DraftKings Salary – $3,600
Jarell Martin is a point-per-minute fantasy player. He’s active on the boards, skilled on the block, can provide blocks and steals, and is the only player on the active roster that can score in the paint. Over his last 4 games, Martin is averaging over 22 DraftKings points per game, and is coming off of career highs in minutes, points, and rebounds.
