DraftKings NBA Lineup Advice: Monday (11/11) PREMIUM
Monday night features a six-game NBA slate on DraftKings. While there are a few high-priced studs to consider, I find myself taking a more balanced approach to lineup construction on Monday’s slate, which includes a “value” stud who always comes with some big upside. The value on the six-game slate seems to come predominately from one team who is playing in a game with the highest Vegas total on the slate.
Note that some of the stats referenced in this article are my custom defense versus position (DvP) calculations. This metric combines data from the season and the last five games along with blending similar positions production allowed together.
Russell Westbrook (PG – HOU): $8,800 at NOR
Sure, you can give Kawhi Leonard consideration for this slot in a game against the team (Raptors) who he just led to a championship, but there are a ton of good wing options on this slate. So, instead, I’m going to pivot to a cheaper option who is playing in the game with the highest Vegas total on the slate with Westbrook. Sure, Westbrook’s numbers have been down the last few games, but a salary under $9k for a player that is still capable of a triple-double on any given night is a steal. Westbrook draws a great matchup against a Pelicans squad that has allowed increased production in points (+16.4%), rebounds (+5.7%), and assists (+31.1%) to point guards in the early going this season.
