DraftKings NBA Lineup Advice: Monday (1/21) PREMIUM
As we celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. on Monday, the NBA brings us a smorgasbord of games throughout the day and night. DraftKings has split up the schedule into a five-game early slate and a four-game evening slate. This article will focus on the four-game evening slate that begins at 6 p.m. ET.
The night slate has some marquee teams on the docket, which should make for a fun DFS action. The one injury situation to watch is in Philadelphia with both Joel Embiid and Jimmy Butler listed as questionable as of this writing. The small slate also gives us one obvious high-priced stud to keep jamming into our DFS lineups.
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.
James Harden (PG/SG – HOU): $13,200 @ PHI
James Harden continues to be the high-priced stud to roster every time he steps on the court. His salary on DraftKings is still not high enough for the insane run he is on. Harden “only” scored 48 points in the Rockets’ overtime win on Saturday against the Lakers after putting up 58 and 57 points in his two previous outings. He has topped 70 DraftKings points in six straight games. Look for more of the same in a road matchup against the Sixers in a game with a tight line and high Vegas total.
