FanDuel NBA Lineup Advice: Friday (1/24) PREMIUM
We kick off the weekend tonight with an 11-game slate, 10 of which are featured on the main slate and one that kicks off earlier at 3:00 p.m. EST. The main slate tips-off at 7:00 p.m. EST. No teams are operating on a back-to-back, ensuring as much freshness as possible at this point in the season.
Derrick Rose (PG – DET): $6,900 vs. MEM
Rose has been very productive in his last nine games, as he totaled fewer than 32.8 FanDuel points in just one of those appearances. Since being elevated into the starting lineup, Rose has really turned the corner, improving his point totals by way of his playmaking ability. The matchup against the Memphis Grizzlies is a solid one, as they rank 22nd in defensive rating and third in pace.
Russell Westbrook (PG – HOU): $10,400 at MIN
Arguably no player has been hotter in the last week or so in DFS than Westbrook. In his past four games, Russ has topped 60-plus FanDuel points four consecutive times, collecting two triple-doubles and one double-double in the process. We’ve gotten teased with the Russ of old, and he has the potential to continue his strong play tonight with the Minnesota Timberwolves next on the schedule. The Timberwolves rank 16th in defensive rating and seventh in pace. As it currently stands, this contest leads the night in implied totals.
