NBA DraftKings & FanDuel DFS Primer: Thursday (1/26)

That Wednesday card was something else. We had 10 games in action, which was a wild slate to watch. The DFS picks had some mixed results, but we’re happy with the outcome. That’s leaving us with just six games on this card, so we don’t have as many recommendations as yesterday. With that in mind, let’s look at the schedule and odds!

Kawhi Leonard (SF/PF – LAC): $10,000 DraftKings, $9,500 FanDuel
It was a really frustrating start for Kawhi this season, but this former Finals MVP has been crushing it over the last month. The Claw has scored at least 37 DraftKings points in 15 of his previous 17 games, averaging 43 fantasy points per game in that span. That even includes that strange blowout against Denver, but we don’t expect to see that again all year. A revenge game against San Antonio is sensational, with the Spurs sitting last in both points allowed and defensive efficiency. When they played a week ago, Kawhi collected 57 DK points!
