DraftKings NBA Lineup Advice: Wednesday (1/9)

We’ve got another packed night in the Association with a 10-game slate headlined by the Bucks/Rockets game that will feature two of the league’s best going at it in Giannis Antetokounmpo and James Harden. Of the 10 Wednesday night games, only four have over/unders higher than 220: Cavaliers/Pelicans (221.5), Bucks/Rockets (225.5), 76ers/Wizards (226), and Hawks/Nets (227). Those will be the games to focus on because of the projected high scores, and two of the matchups (Cavaliers/Pelicans, Hawks/Nets) feature four teams ranked in the bottom-10 in defensive efficiency, which should lead to some high scores.

Here are the players I like most in tonight’s games. While you can’t play all of them, any of these guys will make fine additions to your DraftKings lineups. There are some great cheap upside plays at small forward and center. Good luck!

Point Guard

Austin Rivers (PG/SG – HOU): $4,500 vs. MIL
Rivers has filled in nicely as the Rockets’ starting point guard over the last four games with both Chris Paul (hamstring) and Eric Gordon (knee) out. He will draw the start again on Wednesday in what will likely be a shootout between two high-scoring teams. He’s averaging 41 minutes and 24 DK points per game in his recent stint in the starting five. Fire him up for a cheap option at the point.
