DraftKings NBA picks March 9: Bledsoe and Middleton to win
The NBA was heavy yesterday, so it’s a light night for our DraftKings NBA tournaments. There are only three games tonight and two of these teams are on back-to-backs. We already know that Giannis is out. The Bucks did us a solid and didn’t leave us hanging going into the day. Let’s see who else is joining Giannis in street clothes.
Out: Giannis Antetokounmpo (knee), Fred VanVleet (shoulder), Eric Bledsoe (knee), Clint Capela (heel), Malik Monk (drugs, man), Cam Reddish (leg), Dewan Hernandez (ankle), Bol Bol (foot), Deandre Bembry (abdomen), Skal Labissiere (knee).
There’s no questionables now, but with Bledsoe likely out, that’s a big boost to DiVincenzo and Sterling Brown.
The loss of an hour helped make sure I didn’t have time to get an article up for the massive slate. I still put in a few lineups last night and ended up breaking even. Nothing too good, nothing too bad. I used Bledsoe and Middleton and will again tonight. I didn’t have enough exposure to the Phoenix side or the OT game to have a meaningful line. All five broke 280 though, so it was a decent night.
joe2dwight and kngof9ex took it down with 391.25 DraftKings points. They build with Rubio, Bam, Randle and Bucks chalk and got value out of Dellavedova and Dejounte capped with with DeRozan’s good night.
Just because you don’t see someone on here doesn’t mean they aren’t a good play. I only have so much room, and I’m not going anyone a favor if I recommend more than half of the players at a position. If you have a feeling about someone, by all means, follow that. I mostly follow numbers and trends.
