DraftKings EuroLeague Basketball Picks October 3

It’s that time of year again! The DraftKings EuroLeague tips off tonight with four games for our DraftKings EuroLeague tournaments. We have a few new faces, a few new places, and a few things in between. There are 18 EuroLeague teams this year instead of 16.

The new additions are Berlin, Villeurbanne, and St. Peterburg. Gran Canaria didn’t make it back into the EuroLeague this year. Neither did Podgorica or Darussafaka. They were replaced by Belgrade and Valencia. The other 13 teams are the same as last year: Efes Istanbul, Fenerbahce Istanbul, Milan, CSKA Moscow, Khimki Moscow, Barcelona, Munich, Vitoria-Gasteiz, Tel Aviv, Olympiacos, Athens, Real Madrid, and Zalgiris.

The injury news is really important to follow in the EuroLeague because we don’t always get advanced word stateside. Here’s the report so far:

Out: Nemanja Nedovic, Milan; Jaycee Carroll, Real Madrid; Dairis Bertans, Khimki; Thomas Bray, Bayern Munich; Josh Huestis, Bayern Munich; Nemanja Nenadic, Belgrade; Arturas Gudaitis, Milan; Joffrey Lauvergne, Fenerbahce; Trey Thompkins, Real Madrid; Sergey Karasev, Khimki; Vladimir Micov, Milan; Jan Vesely, Fenerbahce.

Questionable: Alexey Shved, Khimki; Chris Kramer, Khimki; Anthony Gill, Khimki; Timofey Mozgov, Khimki; Felipe Reyes, Real Madrid.

The rotations can be frustrating sometimes as more players see the court than in your average NBA game. The games themselves are also shorter, playing four ten minute quarters as opposed to 12 minutes in the NBA. The court is smaller, the lane is bigger, and the three point line is closer, but the action is still what you would expect from world class basketball!

For DraftKings EuroLeague, we can’t expect 5x value like in the NBA. Most winning lineups are around 180-200 DraftKings points, which is around 3.5 – 4x value.
