DraftKings NBA Lineup Advice: Saturday (1/6)
PREMIUM

Jan 6, 2018

The Bucks will have trouble slowing down Beal tonight

While the Wild Card round of the NFL playoffs will garner a lot of the attention from the sports world on Saturday, there is a six-game NBA main slate on DraftKings that includes a lot of games that should be close and potentially high-scoring. If you are playing the NBA Saturday DFS slate then beware of teams in the second game of a back-to-back which include the Bulls, Pistons, Bucks, Wizards, Timberwolves and Nuggets. While I am not completely avoiding those teams, you do need to watch closely for any late scratches especially for any minor injuries or rest from those clubs.

Note that some of the stats referenced in this article are my custom DvP calculations that combine both season and last five games data along with blending similar positions production allowed together.

One Stud

Anthony Davis (PF/C – NO): $9,900 @ MIN
Anthony Davis has been on a tear recently scoring at least 29 points in each of his last four games while averaging 10 boards and three blocked shots during that stretch. Unlike some of the other high-priced studs on the slate, Davis should be well rested (last played on Wednesday). His teammate DeMarcus Cousins is also a solid option but Davis has been outplaying him recently, has a lower salary and should see plenty of minutes in a close, high-scoring matchup with the Timberwolves.
