There are twelve NBA games on the main Wednesday January 3rd NBA slate at Draft Kings. This is going to be a difficult slate to navigate as there are several ways to build a successful lineup.
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.
Looking at tonight’s slate it’s not going to be easy to find a value play under my usual $5000 dollar Mendoza line so what I’m going to try and do is find three players in great spots who I think will hit or even exceed six times value.
Wednesday’s 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.
Philadelphia 76ers PG T.J. McConnell ($4400) has a good opportunity on Wednesday night against a San Antonio Spurs defense allowing point guards to average 48 Draft Kings points per game over their past five games and 63.9 Draft Kings points this season. McConnell has been solid this season and has exceeded six times value in three of his past five games.
Golden State Warriors PF/C Jordan Bell ($4600) has exceeded six times value in three of his last five game and has a good opportunity on Wednesday night against a Dallas Mavericks defense allowing centers to average 65.2 Draft Kings points per game and power forwards to average 72.3 Draft Kings points per game over the past five games. Bell plays both positions and should be able to make six times value on Wednesday.
Houston Rockets PF/C Ryan Anderson ($4600) has a good opportunity on Wednesday against a Orlando Magic defense allowing power forwards to average 67.6 Draft Kings points per game and centers average 64.3 Draft Kings points per game over the past five games. Anderson has exceeded six times value twice in the past five games and three times considering his current price point. Anderson also averages five more raw points per game on the road so hopefully he can hit six times value Wednesday against the Magic.
Good luck on Draft Kings Wednesday!!
