DraftKings EuroLeague basketball picks March 5
DraftKings did the chop job for the DraftKings EuroLeague slate again, lopping off the St. Petersburg-Zalgiris tilt in Russia. This one is really upsetting because I was planning on running another Zalgiris stack. Thanks for making this less enjoyable, DraftKings. Are you sure you’re not trying to model yourselves after FanDuel? These injuries will make it even less enjoyable.
Out: Anthony Randolph (thumb), Sergio Llull (thigh), Jordan Taylor (undisclosed), Jordan Loyd (foot), Adreian Payne (undisclosed), Jordan Mickey (leg), Gabriel Deck (elbow), Ismael Bako (calf), Nikos Pappas (rest), Andrey Vorontsevich (ankle), Mikhail Kulagin (thigh), Will Clyburn (knee).
Questionable: Daniel Hackett (hip), Kaleb Tarczewski (ankle), Fabian Causeur (undisclosed).
Even if Hackett plays, I’m not paying that price for him. There is just as good of a chance of him playing five minutes as 25. Sam Van Rossom is expected to play today, but he was expected to play on Tuesday as well. I don’t trust this situation at all, which is bad on a three-game slate.
I had a solid line yesterday except for Zan Sisko. A disappointing day for Mirotic at the top probably hurt more with Monroe and Sikma both getting nearly ten more than Mirotic at lower prices.
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.
