DraftKings NBA Lineup Advice: Wednesday (4/10) PREMIUM
It’s the final night of the NBA regular season. Mama, we made it! Setting lineups for daily contests will be particularly tricky this evening because so many teams in action have already been eliminated. Other teams have clinched playoff berths and are locked into their respective positions within the conference. We’ll look at some value plays tonight who may get some increased run as well as a pair of vets playing in their final games. Instead of the usual batch of recommendations, here is a sample lineup that I’ve put together for tonight’s slate. I was able to squeeze two studs in by getting a lot of value at other roster spots. Let’s get to it!
Quinn Cook (PG – GSW): $3,800 @ MEM
Cook will likely draw the start tonight with Steph Curry (ankle) sitting out the Warriors’ season finale. Cook has been a serviceable backup this season and has played well in relief of Curry. Cook played 24 minutes on Tuesday after Curry exited early and put up 27.0 DK Points. After clinching the one-seed in the West, it wouldn’t be surprising to see Golden State rest some key players. Cook is only $3.8K tonight, so don’t be afraid to get him into your lineups as a value play with a lot of opportunity.
Dwyane Wade (PG/SG – MIA): $6,700 @ BKN
It’s Wade’s final NBA game, so of course, I’m paying up for him here. In five games in April, Wade has averaged 35.2 DK Points, including a huge night on Tuesday in his final home game in Miami. The Heat were eliminated from playoff contention following that game, so they head into tonight’s contest with plenty of incentive to let Wade play as much as he wants. He won’t drop 60 and leave on a “Mamba Out” moment, but he’s sure to score a lot and return value. If I still haven’t convinced you and you need another reason to plug D-Wade into your lineup, check out this awesome commercial commemorating his legacy (disclaimer – it’s a tearjerker):
