DraftKings NBA Lineup Advice: Friday (4/6) PREMIUM
It’s Friday night and we have a ten-game slate over on DraftKings tonight. Since it’s so late in the season, the most important thing to keep in mind when building out lineups is injury situations and whether or not a team has anything left to play for. As an example, the Sixers and Cavaliers are strong teams to attack tonight with both neck and neck in the Eastern Conference playoff standings. Also, young teams with injuries such as the Suns and Grizzlies will be strong teams to attack as well.
With these points in mind, I have focused on identifying my two favorite plays, at each position with an emphasis on finding strong tournament plays that are in a position to excel.
Ben Simmons (PHI): $9,700 vs. CLE
Simmons has been priced at a premium recently, but he has been in excellent form and this is arguably the biggest game the Sixers have played all season. The Cavaliers are battling for position near the top of the Eastern Conference and it would be quite a story if they are able to pass them in the standings. Without Embiid in the lineup, Simmons has been leading the charge for the Sixers’ offense and he gets a matchup against a Cavaliers defense that ranks 27th in DK points allowed to PGs this season. In this same matchup in early-March, Simmons put up 46.25 DK points and he should have similar success here tonight. He is a solid play at the top of the board.
