DraftKings NBA Lineup Advice: Thursday (1/25) PREMIUM
It’s Thursday night, and we have a four-game slate over on DraftKings tonight. Despite having only four games on tonight’s slate, we still have some elite players to target as the Warriors, Thunder, and Timberwolves are all on the schedule. A lack of value is going to make it tough to create a lineup with a lot of star power, so my plan tonight will be trying to find the best point per dollar plays in the mid-range. I will also be fading Russell Westbrook in a matchup against the Wizards, instead targeting Stephen Curry for a $1,000 discount.
I am going to identify my two favorite plays, regardless of price, at each position and then a value play that can help round out our lineups.
Stephen Curry (GSW): $10,400 vs. MIN
Since tonight’s Warriors-Timberwolves game is easily the best game on tonight’s four-game slate, I will be targeting the best player in it. Curry is priced up, but he has exceeded 50 DK points six times in the past 10 games. The Timberwolves are ranked 21st in defensive efficiency rating, and Jeff Teague has proven to be a beatable matchup this season, ranking 74th out of 98 PGs in DRPM. Curry has 60 DK point upside in tonight’s matchup and is an interesting pivot off of Russell Westbrook’s more expensive price tag.
