DraftKings EuroLeague Guards:
As you may expect, this slate is loaded at the top. We’ll have to make some tough decisions. Alexey Shved played a season high in minutes in round 9 and racked up 45.25 DraftKings points. If Khimki is finally turning him loose, Shved is the best play on the slate.
Next we have the Efes guard duo of Shane Larkin and Vasilije Micic. Both have put up well over 30 DraftKings points in each of the last two rounds. For Larkin it extends back farther than that. I like both here, but if only using one, it will be Larkin. He has been the more consistent of the two.
Scottie Wilbekin has statistically the best matchup of the day and has been putting up big numbers despite only playing 18 minutes in each of the last two rounds. That said, I would rather go to Lorenzo Brown who has a similarly good matchup but is playing nearly the entire game lately. Belgrade is getting healthy, but Brown is still going to be the motor for the team.
Jordan Loyd and Facundo Campazzo have been inconsistent. Despite the plus matchup, I think I’ll wait on the status of Maodo Lo. If Lo plays, I’ll use him instead unless Dedovic is back. If Lo doesn’t play, Martin Hermannsson could be big for a banged up Berlin team. Brandon Paul has been a consistent force for Olympiacos and is great for cash games.
Nate Wolters is worth a look against Milan, but I’lll move over to Diot if he starts. Austin Hollins is probably the best play in this tier with 73 DraftKings points over the last two rounds. Actually, Hollins is probably the best value on the entire slate.
I still feel Billy Baron is too cheap. Baron has at least 24 DraftKings points in each of the last three rounds. Keep an eye on the Belgrade injuries though. If more than one of the starters return, Baron is going to lose some chances.
Jon DiBartolomeo is lighting it up off the bench lately and gets the best matchup he can ask for with Milan. Tel Aviv has scored in triple digits in each of the last two games. They hit 90 in the game before that. This offense is humming right now, so there are enough chances for all. Even Elijah Bryant, the fourth guard, is putting up big numbers lately.
Quino Colom has been one of the more consistent value plays since Sam Van Rossom went down. If you don’t want to roll with Tel Aviv value, Colom is a safer pick even though he hasn’t yet played 20 minutes in a game. Guillem Vives gets more minutes, but he has yet to establish the consistency of Colom.
Chris Kramer is still just $4,300, and he has double digit DraftKings points in both games. This is a slate where we need a lot of value. Kramer is one of the safer punts out there even if he has little upside.
