FanDuel NBA Lineup Advice: Friday (1/18) PREMIUM
There are seven games on the FanDuel main slate tonight. There are some exciting games on tap with the marquee game being Golden State traveling down state to play the Los Angeles Clippers. The Warriors are favored by 6.5 but the game total is a whopping 241.5. New Orleans travels to Portland in a game game that has a 233 projected total. The final game that should be fun to watch has San Antonio going to Minnesota. The game total is 225 and the Timberwolves are only favored by 1.5.
Even though it is a seven-game slate, there are 12 players that are priced at $9,000 or higher with Anthony Davis being the top-priced player by a clear margin at $13,800. He is priced nearly $3,000 more than Karl-Anthony Towns ($10,900). Kevin Durant ($10,600), Rudy Gobert ($10,500), and Stephen Curry ($10,400) round out the 10k players.
There are a lot of ways to construct lineups. Targeting the highest scoring games of the night isn’t a terrible decision. You could conceivably look at tonight as a three-game slate and make your roster using only players from the Clippers-Warriors, Spurs-Timberwolves, and Pelicans-Trailblazers games. Also, there are a number of very good mid-tier plays tonight and if you decide to fade Anthony Davis, you could get away with a balanced lineup. Finally, you can also look to take the Stars-and-Scrubs approach, where you essentially play higher-priced players and then find low-cost value plays to round out your roster. There are many ways to construct your lineups tonight. What you decide about Anthony Davis and then the center position can take you down various rabbit holes as there are no obvious builds.
