DraftKings NBA Lineup Advice: Saturday (2/8) PREMIUM
Saturday night’s schedule features a nine-game slate, eight of which are scheduled for the main tip-off at 7:00 p.m. EST and one of which tips off at 5:00 p.m. EST on the all-day slate. Ensure you’re paying attention to the injury report as we advance towards tip-off. The Toronto Raptors, Indiana Pacers, Dallas Mavericks, Detroit Pistons, Phoenix Suns, and Sacramento Kings are operating on a back-to-back.
Fred VanVleet (PG – TOR): $6,900 vs. BKN
The Raptors are currently riding a 13-game winning streak, though they’ll need to continue without PG Kyle Lowry as a shoulder injury sustained in last night’s game is likely to keep him sidelined for tonight’s contest against the Brooklyn Nets. If that’s the case, no player receives more of a boost than VanVleet as he now elevates to the main ball-handling role with a lot of the playmaking onus landing on his shoulders. Expect Steady Freddy to step up as usual, with his one game against the Nets previously this year ending with 56 DraftKings points.
Terence Davis (SG – TOR): $3,800 vs. BKN
With Lowry and Norman Powell sidelined, Davis is most likely to get the call up into the starting lineup, elevating from a 6th/7th rotation spot from the bench to a solid number of minutes with the starting unit. Davis has performed admirably in recent times, topping 37+ DraftKings points twice in his past three games, and reaching value nearly three times. Expect Davis to receive plenty of work and opportunities to score points tonight.
