FanDuel NBA Lineup Advice: Friday (1/3) PREMIUM
Tonight’s slate features a six-game main slate which tips-off at 7:00 p.m. EST. After examining the teams on the schedule, the Miami Heat are the only team to operate on a back-to-back after opposing the Toronto Raptors on Thursday night.
Damian Lillard (PG – POR): $9,300 @ WAS
Lillard is coming off a disappointing performance that totaled only 36 FanDuel points, but I wouldn’t worry too much as he’s generally been a pillar of consistency, particularly as of late. Not only is Lillard a consistent DFS threat, but his matchup tonight against the Washington Wizards is a pristine one as they rank 30th in defensive rating and 3rd in pace. In what is expected to be one of the pacier contests of the night, both teams will have plenty of opportunities to collect points. Lillard is a solid star-studded option on a night that features some intriguing options.
Lonzo Ball (PG – NO): $5,300 @ LAL
One of the more head-scratching options on a nightly basis is the talented Ball brother. Ball has the ability to stuff a stat-sheet across the board, as evidenced by his 57-point performance that saw him register a 27 real-life point triple-double in his most recent contest. Tonight’s game against the Los Angeles Lakers does present a tough matchup as the Lakers rank 6th in defensive rating and 17th in pace, but this game does have a revenge-game narrative for Ball as he returns to the Staples Center.
