NBA DraftKings & FanDuel DFS Primer: Wednesday (1/11)

Jan 11, 2023
Julius Randle

Yesterday’s slate was chaotic. We had teams like Miami and Phoenix resting most of their starters, and the late Isaiah Stewart news had me in a panic. The good news is that I was close to my computer, and I was able to pivot away from Beef Stew last minute. That’s something we don’t talk about enough. You need the time and energy to make late changes because the news in the NBA is crazy every night. We’ll indeed have more mayhem on this slate so let’s start by looking at the schedule and odds!

Core Plays

Julius Randle (PF/C – NYK): $10,500 DraftKings, $10,200 FanDuel
There is not enough discussion about how good Randle has been over the last three weeks. The big man has scored at least 53 DraftKings points in 10 straight games. Most MVP candidates don’t do that, flirting with a 60-point average in that span. A matchup with the Pacers should keep that stretch rolling, with Indiana sitting 20th in points allowed and 23rd in defensive efficiency.
