Goran Dragic ($6,500) is likely to be a popular cash game play and for good reason. He is averaging 37.4 DK PPG over the course of the last sixteen (!!) outings. Those 16 games are the same number of games that Chris Bosh has missed, thrusting Dragic up the food chain. He’s been a focal point in this Miami offense, shooting the rock 14.9 times per night compare to just 10.6 shot attempts per game in the 44 games with Bosh this season. Dragic has put together two solid games in a row for 38.75 and 42 DraftKings points and will draw an excellent matchup with a depleted Pelicans team tonight.
Nic Batum ($7,300) continues to do Nic Batum things. Outside of the dud last night, Batum has been his solid self, averaging 44 DraftKings points in the previous six games. I am willing to throw last night out the window in a historically bad team performance against a Spurs team with a historically good defense. Batum has sniffed a triple-double on a nightly basis for the last two weeks and draws the Brooklyn Nets tonight. This is a team he’s averaged 40.5 DraftKings points per game against in two meetings this season.
The Michael Beasley ($4,900) show rolls on for the Houston Rockets. The newly acquired Rocket is stuffing the stat sheet to the tune of 29 DraftKings points per game over the last six. It’s hard to look past the last four where Beasley is averaging 18.5 real points per game and just stuffed 30 on the Hawks in his last outing. The Rockets may be without superstar James Harden (currently questionable) for this game, which would open up another 20 shot attempts. A fast-paced, high scoring game against OKC could provide more fireworks for Beasley owners.
So Zach Randolph ($6,800) comes back from injury and immediately drops his first career triple-double on Saturday night for 60.25 DraftKings points. He followed that up last night with a solid 14-13-2-1-1 line against the Suns. Randolph was turning a corner in the eleven games before his injury, averaging 34 DraftKings points per game which is right on 5x value again tonight. You can’t ask for a better matchup than with the Lakers tonight.
Enes Kanter ($5,200) needs approximately 30 DraftKings points to reach 6x value tonight. That’s a feat he’s accomplished in five of six and six of eight games. Despite not playing a ton of minutes, he’s making the most of time on the court. He’s logged a double-double in two of three and hasn’t scored less than 15 real points in any of his last four games. A night, high-scoring game against the Rockets is expected tonight.
