DraftKings NBA Lineup Advice: Saturday (2/9) PREMIUM
We have an eight-game slate on the NBA hardwood Saturday night. Things are still a little dicey trying to figure out new rotations for teams that made trades at the deadline. However, don’t be afraid to take a chance on some of the new faces in new places, especially if they have already played well with a positive playing time adjustment with their new squad.
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.
James Harden (PG/SG – HOU): $12,200 vs. OKC
Harden or Russell Westbrook? That is the question at the top for Saturday night’s slate. Harden’s numbers take a little bit of hit with Chris Paul playing and Westbrook is on a roll with eight straight triple-doubles. However, there are a few other PGs that I like on this slate, but SG is a tough nut to crack, so I’m going with Harden as my one stud of the night. Harden has averaged 30.0 points, 7.0 rebounds, and 6.0 assists in two previous meeting for 53.3 DK points per game. However, in the home game, like Saturday’s will be, Harden put up 41 points on his way to 64.5 DK points.
