DraftKings NBA Lineup Advice: Saturday (11/16) PREMIUM
Tonight’s contests will feature a slate of eight games, with the Houston Rockets, Indiana Pacers, and Minnesota Timberwolves all operating on a back-to-back. The main slate kicks off at 7:00 p.m. EST as usual and will feature seven of the eight contests available.
Andrew Wiggins (MIN): $8,400 @ HOU
Wiggins was on my advice sheet yesterday but was ultimately held out of the game due to a personal matter. Now, Wiggins – and the Timberwolves – return on the second night of a back-to-back, but the stud won’t be affected obviously. As of recently, Wiggins has been on an absolute tear, scoring over 41 DraftKings points in all of his past five contests and scoring above 50 points three times in that same span. The Rockets are ranked 17th in defensive rating and 4th in pace, leaving Wiggins and his team in the paciest game of the night, which will also likely lead the slate in implied total.
Jimmy Butler (MIA): $7,600 @ NO
Butler has yet to fully find his form in his new home in Miami, but the superstar has reached value in nearly all of his recent contests, proving he’s a varied scorer who contributes on both sides of the court. The New Orleans Pelicans represent a fantastic matchup as they rank 29th in defensive rating and 3rd in pace. Basically, any Heat players are smart to target, but Butler has the chance to explode against the weak defense of the Pelicans.
