There are ten NBA games on the main Friday January 26th, 2018 NBA slate at Draft Kings. This is going to be a fun slate to play and I am looking forward trying to figure this one out.
The standard lineup at Draft Kings consists of one point guard, one shooting guard, one small forward, one power forward, one center, one guard, one forward and one utility player.
A value play for me is someone under $5000 dollars and has a good opportunity to exceed at least six times value and hopefully reach ten times value.
Fridays slate begins at 7:00 pm so be sure to the best of your ability that the players on your roster are actually playing.
I have three such players in great spots Wednesday that I would like you to consider.
New York Knicks point guard Frank Ntlikina ($3700) has a very good opportuntiy tonight against a Phoenix Suns defense allowing point guards to average 97.1 Draft Kings points per game over their past five games. The Knicks are playing the second game of a back to back and in the previous similar situation Ntlikina got 29 minutes and had 41 Draft Kings points. I look for the Knicks to give him the same minutes tonight.
Dallas Mavericks PF/C Dirk Nowitzki ($4500) has a terrific opportunity Friday night aagainst a Portland Trail Blazers defense allowing centers to average 61.2 Draft kings points per game over their past five games. Nowitzki has exceeded six times value in two of his past five games including 33 Draft Kings points last week against this same Trail Blazers defense.
Indiana Pacers point guard Cory Joseph ($4000) has exceeded six times value in two of his past five games and he has a good opportunity on Friday night against a Cleveland Cavaliers defense allowing 73.1 Draft Kings points per game over their past five games.
Good luck on Draft Kings Friday!!
