FanDuel NBA Lineup Advice: Wednesday (1/9) PREMIUM
With 10 games to decide between, I’ve been lead towards a studs-and-scrubs strategy. As usual, I set myself the challenge of coming in under the FanDuel $60k budget, ideally with a little spending money left over. This week I have $1,000 left over. Let’s take a look at the lineup.
Kyrie Irving (BOS): $8,400 vs. IND
Irving (eye) missed two games prior to Monday’s return, in which he had a successful night before sitting out the fourth quarter. He scored 17 points, two rebounds, six assists, and three steals in that game. His salary dropped a few hundred dollars, but he’s likely to see his typical 30+ minutes now. Take advantage of buying on the dip.
Patty Mills (SA): @ $3,800 @ MEM
Mills has scored double-digit points in his last four games. In the last two, he has seen and increased average of 24.5 minutes and 24.1 FPTS. Memphis have been in the top three in turnovers over the last three games, so there’s opportunity here for Mills as a bargain-bin play. There’s a risk that Mills sees limited minutes, and some of his recent output has been due to game flow, but in his last game against the Grizzlies, two games ago, Mills saw 23 minutes for 24.4 FPTS.
