NBA DFS Picks: November 9 (DraftKings FanDuel)
Coming off a crazy eleven game slate last night we get a calm four game slate tonight. The theme of the night is back-to-back – four of the eight teams playing tonight played last night and two of the teams playing tonight are playing tomorrow. The only two teams that aren’t dealing with a back-to-back is the highest projected game on the slate – Rockets at Bulls.
Remember to check back before tip off for injury updates and follow us on Twitter @theDFSpost. Let’s get to it – here are our NBA DFS Picks for November 9.
- Porzingis is OUT – boost to Kleber, and Hardaway/Powell if you can stomach it.
- Ball is OUT – boost to Ingram, Redick, Holiday and Hart.
- Morant and Clarke are OUT – boost to Jones, Jaren Jackson Jr, and Brooks.
THE STARTING FIVE
Luka Doncic – DAL @ mem (FD$10,600|DK$9,600)
This is a great matchup for Doncic. Not only is he on a tear (3 of his last 4 games he’s dropped over 72FPoints) but now he gets to face the Grizzlies who are fifth in pace and 24th in total defence. Plus the game is projected to be close so he should get a full allotment of minutes. I’m locking him in.
**UPDATE** News just broke that Porzingis is sitting tonights game. Lock in Doncic and some Dallas frontcourt value (Maxi Kleber)
Brandon Ingram – NO @ cha (FD$8,800|DK$8,000)
News just broke while I was writing that Lonzo Ball is going to miss tonight’s game. While you’re going to want to take advantage of some value (Josh Hart/Frank Jackson), Ingram receives a 2.2% usage boost with Lonzo off the court and will shoulder even more of the offensive load. 5x seems like a doable floor and he dropped 56 FPoints two games ago.
Terry Rozier – CHA v no (FD$7,300|DK$7,000)
Devonte’ Graham – CHA v no (FD$6,400|$DK6,700)
This matchup checks off all the boxes you’re looking for. (1) Pelicans are dead last in defending the point (2) Pelican’s are on the second half of a back-to-back and (3) Pelican’s are 1.5 point favorites (4) highest scoring game on the slate. There couldn’t be a better game than this to help Rozier break out of his slump an hit 45+ FPoints like he did four games ago and Graham to continue his streak at hit 56 FPoints two games ago.
The Chicago Bulls
My projections are going crazy telling me to play five Bulls tonight (LaVine, Markkanen, Carter, Hutchison and White). It’s not that they are all great plays but rather their salary’s have all decreased making them appear to be good plays in this pace up/high total game. Otto Porter is going to miss this game and while Hutchison is expected to start it was actually Coby White who played the minutes after Porter went down. I think LaVine is the better play out of the five, followed by Carter and Markkanen, then White and Hutchison for value if you need it.
MAIN PLAYER POOL:
Jaren Jackson Jr (GPP)
Wendell Carter Jr.
