FanDuel NBA Lineup Advice: Tuesday (12/25) PREMIUM
We have eight matchups to choose from tonight, in a heavier than usual Tuesday slate. There’s plenty of high-priced talent tonight, with 11 players checking in at salaries over $9,000. As of this writing, the highest predicted point total of the night is the matchup between the Hornets and Clippers at 230.5. There are some potential blowouts in the making to be wary of, and some injuries to keep an eye one, which could open the door for some big salary savings. Tonight I’m going to breakdown three players at each position; one that’s worth the high price tag, one that will net you some serious savings, and one that you’re betting off fading tonight. Let’s dive in.
Pay up for: Russell Westbrook ($11,800)
Westbrook has been finding his groove lately, notching triple-doubles in three of his last four games played. He’ll play the Timberwolves Tuesday, who gives up the third most assists to point guards and the twelfth most rebounds. He’s in a great spot for another triple-double performance, and it could be a big one.
Salary saver: Trey Burke ($4,000)
The Knicks might get run out of the building Tuesday night when they travel to Golden State on the second night of a back-to-back. It’s not a great spot for the Knicks as a team, but it could mean big value for Burke. With Frank Ntilikina likely to remain out with an ankle injury, Burke will be the first point guard off the bench Tuesday. He put up some monster numbers early in the season when he was seeing more minutes; if game-flow dictates more playing time for Burke he should easily hit 5X value, if not more.
