Kyrie Irving, BOS (vs LAL), $9.5k DK
Kyrie Irving is a high-upside pick on Thursday night. For starters, any time Rie plays LeBron there’s a little extra motivation to play well. There’s also the fact that Rajon Rondo, who will be starting opposite of him for L.A., isn’t as good on the defensive side of the floor as his reputation may indicate.
The biggest factor here, though, is a variable. And it’s why you can not pick your rosters on Thursday before 3 or 4 p.m. ET—after the trade deadline has passed. There’s a very real chance the Lakers are shorthanded if they struck a deal, blockbuster or otherwise. Los Angeles is desperate to make a splash, and if they’re successful, their roster will suffer the immediate consequences against Boston.
Damian Lillard, POR (vs SAS) $8.6k DK
If you’re not buying into the Irving hype on Thursday, Damian Lillard should be a no-brainer Plan B. Or if you have eyes for some serious value picks in the frontcourt, you could stack these elite guards and feel pretty good going into the night.
Lillard, who hasn’t had to travel in well over a week because of Portland’s incredibly friendly pre-All-Star stretch, also has motivation to perform above his own admittedly high bar. LaMarcus Aldridge is in town, and while the duo’s relationship has reportedly improved throughout the years, the big man’s departure changed the landscape of the Blazers and Lillard will look to remind him what he left behind.
Domantas Sabonis (vs LAC), $5.9k DK
The LA Clippers are going to be in a bit of an identity crisis on Thursday night as they play their first game without their best player, Tobias Harris, who was just traded to the Philadelphia 76ers. In the long run, it’s a good move to reset the table a bit and aim toward the future. In the short term, it’s going to be problematic for anyone who wants to see them win, and Domantas Sabonis will take full advantage of that at home.
Gordon Hayward (vs LAL), $4.8 DK
Gordon Hayward represents a risk every night until he proves he’s officially “back.” But he is coming off a strong performance that saw him collect 36 FPTS, and if the Celtics can blow this game apart early—which is very realistic considering A) The Lakers are coming off the worst loss of LeBron James’ career, and B) Their roster could be bare if they pull off a big trade before the deadline.
JaVale McGee, LAL (@ BOS) $4.5k DK
JaVale McGee is one Laker you can probably assume won’t be traded. Veterans Michael Beasley, Rajon Rondo and Lance Stephenson have been floated in a number of rumors, but McGee seems to be set to survive the deadline. That means that he’s both a prime candidate to play plenty of minutes if he’s one of the lone vets left, and he’s also the kind of player who gets plenty of minutes in garbage-time situations.
One last thing. Remember… at the end of the day if you can’t afford to gamble online OR play at Draft Kings and Fan Duel then STOP. We know most DFS players need action, heck we do too, so just bet what you can afford.
Don’t go chasing money in high dollar GPP’s. Stick to cash games, and try to play on bigger slates. Avoid those night time 2 games slates. Your bankroll will thank us later.
