NBA DraftKings & FanDuel DFS Primer: Monday (12/26)

This weekend was wild. Saturday night was one of the most exciting sporting nights I’ve ever seen. We had MMA, Australian Open, Rugby 7s, NFL Playoffs, and of course, NBA all at the same time on Saturday night! That’s a sports fans’ dream, and it’ll be nice to focus solely on NBA to start the week. This Monday card has some great spots too, and I really enjoyed picking players. With that in mind, let’s get started with the schedule and odds!

Damian Lillard (PG – POR): $10,100 DraftKings, $10,200 FanDuel
At times, Lillard looks like the best player in the NBA, and he’s amid one of those fantastic stretches right now. The All-Star has scored at least 57 DraftKings points in five straight games, averaging over 60 fantasy points per game in that span. That would make him a worthy play against anyone, but he’s tough to fade against a Spurs team that sits last in both points allowed and defensive efficiency. In their last matchup, Dame dropped another 60-piece!
