DraftKings NBA Lineup Advice: Friday (1/4) PREMIUM
Friday night starts off the weekend with a 10-game NBA slate. There aren’t as many high-priced studs on Friday’s slate which could open up an opportunity to go with a more balanced approach during lineup construction. Also, be wary of teams that are favored by a lot and are playing in the first game of a back-to-back set such as the Bucks and Jazz who may rest players or cut back minutes of their starters if they are up big.
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.
Karl-Anthony Towns (C – MIN): $9,900 vs. ORL
With Giannis Antetokounmpo and Russell Westbrook as the only healthy players with a five-figure salary on Friday night, I’m going to dip down into the four-figure salaries to scoop up one of the hottest players in the league right now with Towns. He has put up at least 52 DraftKings points in five straight outings including three over 69 DK points. During that stretch, he is averaging 28.2 points, 17.2 rebounds, 5.8 assists and 3.0 blocks per game. He also typically posted better numbers at home which is where he will be with the Magic coming to Minnesota on Friday night.
