DraftKings NBA Lineup Advice: Monday (3/11) PREMIUM
We have a modest six-game slate in the NBA to start off the work week. The Vegas lines anticipate a lot of closely contested matchup with four of the games coming in with a favorite of four points or fewer. Only the Raptors and Rockets are significant favorites which could lead to some players getting a day off for rest or limited minutes as they are both playing in the second game of a back-to-back set. There is also one matchup with a massive total over 240 points with the Kings visiting the Wizards in a matchup of two up-tempo teams.
Note that some of the stats referenced in this article are my custom defense versus position (DvP) calculations that combine both season and last five games data along with blending similar position production allowed together.
Bradley Beal (SG – WAS): $9,700 vs. SAC
It shouldn’t come as a big surprise that my “one stud” of the night is the best player playing in the Kings/Wizards game which features a sensational game environment for fantasy production. Paul George came in a close second, but as you’ll see further down the list, most of the best value comes at forward. So, I’m going with Beal who has exceeded 50 DraftKings points in four of his last five games while averaging 26.4 points, 7.8 rebounds, 7.6 assists, and 2.2 steals during that stretch. He draws a plus matchup against the Kings who have allowed increased points (+7.1%) and rebounds (+2.2%) to SGs this season.
