FanDuel NBA Lineup Advice: Friday (12/13) PREMIUM
The end of the week is near with tonight’s schedule featuring a thick 13-game slate that’ll have the Philadelphia 76ers as the only team operating on a back-to-back. With such a deep slate, get ready for plenty of options and lineup optimization. Tip-off locks at 7:00 p.m. EST.
Malcolm Brogdon (PG – IND): $7,800 @ ATL
After starting the season out on an absolute tear, Brogdon has slowed down considerably, though his price has dropped to match the decrease in production. At this price-point, Brogdon represents a great option that is coming off a 48.4-point performance just two nights ago. The Atlanta Hawks present a great matchup as they rank 29th in defensive rating and 11th in pace. The Pacers also have the highest implied total of the night thus far with a projected 114.25 points.
De’Anthony Melton (PG – MEM): $4,100 vs. MIL
Starting point guard Ja Morant has been ruled out for today’s contest due to a back injury, bringing intrigue to the two remaining point guards on the roster in Tyus Jones and Melton. I chose to go with Melton as I believe he offers a higher upside and has performed incredibly well lately scoring over 20+ FanDuel points in five of his past six contests. Look for Melton to get plenty of minutes tonight. Even though the matchup is a tough one as the Milwaukee Bucks rank 1st in defensive rating, it doesn’t take much to reach value at Meltons’ price tag.
