DraftKings EuroLeague basketball picks January 10
Friday’s DraftKings EuroLeague slate is the same as yesterday since they chopped off the earlier tip. Therefore, this tournament doesn’t start until 2:30 eastern time. The eight teams in action still give up plenty of tough choices as do tough matchups. The injury report was pretty clean yesterday. Today is a little more messy.
Out: Bryant Dunston (arms), Daniel Hackett (finger), Janis Strelnieks (hamstring), Thomas Huertel (knee), Jordan Loyd (ankle), Willie Reed (undisclosed), Charles Jenkins (personal), Will Cherry (released over feud with Baldwin), Edwin Jackson (knee), Kevin Pangos (toe), Stratos Perperoglu (knee), Will Clyburn (knee).
Milutinov’s ankle injury was supposed to cost him three weeks. He may end up not missing any since he practiced yesterday. It is assumed Higgins will play, but there is no official word yet. Bray could make his season debut today, but even if he does, he may not play enough to be worth it. However, with his price that low, I’ll find out at least once if he’s active.
Yesterday’s lineup was again full of solid contributors, but 140 hasn’t been cashing lately.
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.
