I hope everyone had a good Christmas and made some money on DraftKings. The Christmas Day article did great and I hope you all enjoyed it. I was able to score 287 points on Christmas, winning all my 50/50’s and was able to make some GPP money too. We have a 9 game slate for ya on Saturday. So how about we get you guys on the road to winning some money over at DraftKings.
Stephen Curry ($10,600) is in a great spot facing a Timberwolves team that is 29th in the league in DEF. There is some blowout risk in this game with the line at -17 but the O/U is at 216.
John Wall ($10,300) is at home against Boston where he seems to play better. Back on December 7th and 8th he torched Boston for 58.5 and 63.75 Draft Kings points. Rock solid foundation for your cash games.
Derrick Rose ($6,900) has been playing really well as of late. He’s getting around 30 minutes a game the last 4 games and averaging about a point a minute. If you’re not spending up at PG he’s a nice option under 7k.
If you’re looking to punt then Tony Wroten ($4,300) seems a little underpriced. People have forgotten him since MCW has been back and playing well. Wroten is seeing around 30 minutes a game and going up against a Utah team that is 28th in DEF.
Also consider Kemba Walker ($8,500).
Shooting guard is not a position I like too much Saturday night. Jimmy Butler ($8,000) sticks out to me. He just keeps getting is done in every area. Playing at home against New Orleans is 27th in DEF. Bulls had the day off on Friday and the Pelicans are on a second end of a B2B.
Victor Oladipo ($5,900) isn’t a bad option at a position that doesn’t offer much. I would prefer him playing the point and a faster paced game.
If Boogie Cousins is out again the fire up Rudy Gay ($8,600). His usage rate goes way up with Cousins out of the line up.
Gordon Hayward ($8,100) has the best match up playing against a 76ers team that is last in the league at defending SF’s.
Shabazz Muhammad ($6,300) is the main beneficiary of the Corey Brewer trade. He hasn’t been under 32 DraftKings points the last 5 games.
Anthony Davis ($11,600) is coming back home for the first time in a Pelicans uniform.
Paul Millsap ($8,200) is facing the same Milwaukee team that he had 22 points and 11 boards against on Friday night.
David West ($6,200) a underpriced relative to his production. The Nets don’t defend the PF position well either.
Also consider Robert Covington ($5,800) at Utah.
Boogie Cousins ($10,900) was out Friday with the stomach flu. If he is playing then you should probably play him as well. The Knicks have no one to slow him down.
Who on the Miami Heat is going to slow Marc Gasol ($9,300) down? Nobody! That’s why he makes for a great cash game play.
I’m sure everyone is pissed at Kyle O’Quinn ($5,500) because he only played 16 minutes, 0 points, 0 boards and had 4 fouls against the Cavs on Friday. Let’s not hope for a repeat performance because he will be under owned after that train wreck.
Get over to DraftKings and get in on some NBA action. They have games at all different price points.
