DraftKings NBA Lineup Advice: Wednesday (1/1) PREMIUM
Tonight’s four-game slate may seem easy because there are only a few stars to choose from and we have enough injuries on the slate that there are excellent values to be found. Don’t be fooled, though, it is a tricky slate. Giannis Antetokounmpo will be a popular play for sure but I am fading him. He is dealing with a back injury, only played 27 minutes in Milwaukee’s previous game and finds his Bucks as 17-point home favorites tonight. If you want to spend $11,200 on that level of uncertainty then be my guest. Anthony Davis is still dealing with a shoulder injury while Lebron James has his groin bothering him, and again, the Lakers are heavy home favorites. None of these guys are absolute locks. Instead, let me tell you about four I’m definitely getting into my lineup tonight.
Jarrett Culver (PG/SG – MIN): $4,800 @ MIL
Folks, this is the easiest play of the entire year so far. Granted, it’s only the first day, but Culver will likely be 90% owned in cash games. Don’t be left out in the cold. Minnesota will be missing plenty of usage again tonight and much of that should fall to their talented young rookie. We saw this play out Tuesday when Culver fell into 38 minutes and dropped 21 points on his way to a 10x performance. While that matchup versus Milwaukee clearly isn’t as useful, he is a guarantee at 5x and likely to push 7 or 8x value.
