DraftKings NBA Picks October 31: Kawhi going for 5-0

Halloween brings just three games for our DraftKings NBA tournaments. That means less value, a shorter injury report, and a very loaded slate on Friday. This is a pretty ugly slate, to be honest. One of the biggest stars is out. Another is questionable. Five of the six teams run about 10 deep. I wouldn’t blame you if you wanted to go trick or treating instead. Me? I’ll be trying to win money from DraftKings.

The injury report is a lot smaller tonight and is fairly well defined. And we already know that Kawhi is in, so that takes the guesswork out of it.

Out: Trae Young(ankle), Paul George(shoulders), Dion Waiters(conditioning), Derrick Jones(groin), Allen Crabbe(knee), Chandler Parsons(knee….only one this time), Zion Williamson(knee), Darius Miller(achilles), Bol Bol(foot), KZ Okpala(tendonitis).

Questionable: Derrick Favors(knee), James Johnson(conditioning), Evan Turner(achilles), Amir Coffey(ankle).

Favors and Turner are both doubtful for this one. James Johnson at least traveled with the team this time, but even if he does play, I doubt that it’s for very long.

I only cashed in one of five lineups last night because I had no exposure to Harden. Only a Houston/Washington game stack hit 318.25 to put me over the cash line of 305.5

gsd4 took this one down with 407.5 DraftKings points. He had both Harden and Beal to go with great value out of Nerlens Noel, Aron Baynes, Love, Lamb, and Marcus Smart. His low man was Rui Hachimura.
