NBA DFS Picks: November 13 (DraftKings FanDuel)
I love seven games slates. It’s the right balance of information to digest yet enough games to differentiate yourself. Tonight the majority of the games are projected to be over 220 points but there is limited injury news out so value is hard to come by (there still is enough though!). I will update accordingly closer to tip off but for now there are still some juicy matchups so let’s get to it – here are our FanDuel and DraftKings Picks for November 13.
THE STARTING FIVE
Karl-Anthony Towns – MIN v sa (FD$10,900|DK$9,300)
Yes this pick does come with risk going up against one of the best defensive teams against centers in basketball but KAT is in a league of his own. His price has been adjusted down $700 for this matchup and I still feel KAT has 60DKFP upside but would be happy with 50DKFPs which I feel is fair. For now without much injury or rest news KAT is my top-pay up option.
Russell Westbrook – HOU v lac (FD$9,900|DK$8,900)
Yes Westbrook hasn’t played well recently but I feel that Kawhi will slow down Harden which should open up some additional opportunities for Westbrook, plus with Gordon and House being out for this game it just makes Westbrook’s minutes even more secure. If he starts getting assists like early in the season it’s not out of the question for him to lay a 60FP burger tonight, but I’m happy with the safety of 50FP.
Jayson Tatum – BOS v was (FD$8,400|DK$7,500)
Jaylen Brown – BOS v was (FD$7,200|DK$)7,300
You’re going to want to get exposure to anybody who plays the Wizards and tonight that’s the Celtics. Even though Brown got a $1000 bump there is still meat on the bones and probably is my favorites play of the two but it is important to note that last game Tatum went 1-18 from the field. People who look at just the FPPG would probably side with Brown so Tatum becomes contrarian by nature because his production will eat into Brown’s. I still feel Brown is more consistent but you can’t go wrong with either.
Devonte’ Graham – CHA v mem (FD$7,200|DK$6,900)
His salary has climbed $1500 from four games ago but it’s not unjustified. Over those four games he’s averaged 45.7DKFPPG – including a ceiling game of 56FP against the Pacers. Graham is a lock to play over 30 minutes and considering Memphis plays at the fifth highest Pace there will be ample opportunity to fill the stat sheet. He’s your low-ownership high-upside play tonight!
Rondae Hollis-Jefferson – TOR @ por (FD$4,200|DK$4,500)
We are going to need some value today and RHJ right now is the best way to get that. We saw what he did last game when he was given the opportunity to play (28.3DKFP on 29 minutes) and now he’s set to start with OG going to miss tonight’s game. He should play 30 minutes and a double-double is a real possibility in a battle of beat up frontcourts. You can also go with Chris Boucher, who is still a great play, but RHJ should get more minutes tonight. I’m expecting 25-30 FPoints from both.
MAIN PLAYER POOL:
LeBron James (blowout risk)
Lou Williams (if no George)
Kawhi Leonard (if no George)
Al Horford (if Embiid is out)
Jaren Jackson Jr.
Rondae Hollis-Jefferson (no OG)
Ben McLemore (No House or Gordon)
Robert Williams (if starting)
