DraftKings NBA Lineup Advice: Monday (1/6) PREMIUM
Lineup construction could be a challenge on Monday’s nine-game NBA slate. At least as of this writeup, there isn’t much deep value to be found on DraftKings, so a balanced lineup build could be the best path when constructing your cash game lineup. Of course, this is the NBA, so watch for any late scratches or injury news that could open up some strong value plays.
Note that some of the stats referenced in this article are my custom defense versus position (DvP) calculations that combines data from the season and last five games along with blending similar positions production allowed together.
Giannis Antetokounmpo (SF/PF – MIL): $10,900 @ SA
The one stud of the night comes down to Antetokounmpo and Luka Doncic. Antetokounmpo is my preferred choice due to the salary difference and some concerns about a Mavericks blowout. Giannis just played the Spurs and had a “down” game with just 32 points, eight rebounds, and one assist for 47 DraftKings points. Look for his numbers to rise in a tighter game on the road against the Spurs on Monday in a matchup with the highest Vegas total on the slate.
