DraftKings NBA centers:

Best Bets:

Kristaps Porzingis ($9,300): Porzingis went nuts on Memphis in the first meeting for 60 DraftKings points. It took a while, but it finally seems as though he and Luka can coexist and both put up massive numbers. Porzingis has only been under 49 DraftKings points once since February 10. Sure, Luka missed a couple of those games, but he has been in there is most of those. I think we can play both of them safely right now.

Nikola Vucevic ($8,900): Vucevic put up 50 DraftKings points in the first meeting against Minnesota and has rather quietly put up at least 50 DraftKings points in three of the last four games. Vucevic isn’t flashy, but he is mostly consistent and is out there in another really good matchup.

Honorable Mention:

Zion Williamson ($7,600): Dallas and the back to back slowed down Zion enough for him to not hit value, but he still scored more than 20 points again. Miami is the one team that might be able to hold Zion down. Would I bet on it? Not a chance. That’s why he’s here. I will run Zion once again in case he keeps it up.

Rui Hachimura ($5,300): Center is actually loaded with pitfalls tonight. There are a lot of matchups that look good on the surface, but they really aren’t Dallas has been tougher up front lately. Bam is struggling. Naz was dominated by Vucevic last week. That brings me to Rui, who has a great matchup with the Hawks and is a consistent force. He’s not going to put up really good numbers here, but he’s a lock for 5x value.

Dark Horses:

Myles Turner ($5,200): I rarely play Turner, but the Bulls are slowly nursing back to health in the middle. Most are going to run Sabonis here, but the Bulls have actually done well against him so far. Sabonis has far more upside, but I think Turner might have the better floor based on price. Sabonis can just as easily get you 4x value for his price. We shouldn’t see that from Turner.

Thomas Bryant ($4,000): Washington is rightfully taking it easy with Bryant. There is no setback. He just rested. Bryant likely wont play more than 22 minutes or so, but he has also cleared 20 DraftKings points in three straight despite not playing 20 minutes in any of them. There’s not a lot of upside, but the floor is great at this price. Don’t underestimate how important that is.
