DraftKings NBA Lineup Advice: Monday (2/4) PREMIUM
Now that the Super Bowl is behind us, we can focus on some NBA DFS until the baseball season rolls around. Monday’s slate on the hardwood brings us six games that could provide some high-scoring affairs, with Vegas giving four of the games totals over 225 points. There are also a lot of tight lines and no teams playing on the second game of a back-to-back, so starters’ minutes should not be in jeopardy.
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.
Giannis Antetokounmpo (SF/PF – MIL): $10,900 @ BRK
There are three options over $10K on DraftKings in James Harden, Giannis Antetokounmpo, and Nikola Jokic. I’m going to cross off Harden and his $12,900 salary assuming Chris Paul plays, and I’m also knocking off Jokic on the road, where he doesn’t seem to offer as much upside. This leaves me with Antetokounmpo, and I’m good with that. He destroyed the Nets earlier this season by posting a triple-double with 31 points, 10 rebounds, and 10 assists. The Greek Freak has a very high floor and plenty of upside that you want from your one stud.
