DraftKings NBA Lineup Advice: Wednesday (1/10) PREMIUM
We have a MASSIVE 11-game slate on tap for NBA tonight, and there are great options across the board. Whether you are looking for cash game options or GPP options, there are plenty of choices at each position. We have a bit of injury news that is still up in the air, and this will change the layout of things later in the day.
Eric Bledsoe (MIL): $7,000 vs. ORL
Bledsoe is in a good spot tonight, as he is up against the Magic, who are giving up 50 DraftKings points per game to point guards, which is dead last in the league. This is a prime spot for Bledsoe, which puts him in a good spot for both cash games and tournaments. Bledsoe has a 28% usage rate for the Bucks this season, along with a 1.08 fantasy points per game. He has scored 32 or more DraftKings points in six of his last 10 games. The Magic are on the second night of a back-to-back, so the Bucks are in a great spot to put up big points. We know that Bledsoe isn’t the first option on offense for the Bucks, but this game has an over-under set at 218 points, so there is plenty of scoring to go around.
CJ McCollum (POR): $7,800 @ HOU
With Damian Lillard still being listed as questionable for this game. McCollum is in a spot to gain from this. When Lillard is off the court, McCollum has a 33% usage rate and is averaging 1.03 fantasy points per game. That 33% is a 5.7% increase from normal, so we want to take advantage of that. McCollum is up against the Rockets, who are giving up 41 DraftKings points per game to shooting guards, which is 10th worst in the league. He makes a good cash game option tonight since he will have a solid floor of points with Lillard off the court. He could be one of the chalkier plays tonight if Lillard is ruled out, so fading him in tournaments isn’t a bad idea.
