NBA DFS Today Optimal and Lineups 1/30/20 for Draftkings Showdowns

Tonight we are going to crush the 3 games optimally on the slates for today, January 30th 2020 on Draftkings. Here are your matchups with the best or most optimal tournament lineups. Also considered for cash games if playing as well.

TOR @ Cleve

I would take cleveland covering the 9 points without Gasol on the floor as the game could not blowout at all really.

Here we know it appears Gasol, RHJ are out for the Raptors, which will give more time to Ibaka and Boucher for tonight. So fire those guys where ever you feel free.

Previous meeting: 2020

These teams met not too long ago as Thompson dominated inside as well as Ibaka. Lowry was hard to stop as the Raptors did not have Marc Gasol. The guards for Cleveland are getting better, and the Love/Thompson combination worked well this day. Look for Larry Nance off the bench as well as he’s expected to be more aggressive per the coaching there.

Optimal Exposure or Chalk for tonight:

NBA DFS today Optimal Showdown slate 1/30/20

 

Here we can see Lowry has the most overall exposure or chalk, which is not surprising. Ibaka as mentioned could be 2nd most chalk for the night playing at center, even having him as a captain on the most optimal lineup.

GS @ BOS

I’m going to take the blowout here as it seems Golden state will have no chance to keep up with this team offensively or defensively. Click on the DFS army picture to get the full 100 lineups optimzed for tournaments as well.

Previous meeting: November 2019

These  teams met this season and GS kept it very close as I watched the game, Jalen Brown did well, as well as Kemba and Thies so this combination will work today, with Tatum, whom was not too significant in this game. The two main guys for GS, Draymond and Russell also dominated.

Optimal Exposure

NBA DFS optimal 3/20 Bos vs GS

Here with Robert Williams and Ernest Kanter out of BOS, the big guys on the bench will get time such as Grant Williams and Semi Ojeleye. GS should get plenty of run time for at least 9 guys:

SCORING MIN PTS REB AST 3PM FTM
D`Angelo Russell 32 22.1 4.0 6.8 2.9 2.6
Alec Burks 33 15.4 5.7 3.2 1.5 3.7
Eric Paschall 28 13.4 5.1 1.6 0.5 2.1
Glenn Robinson 31 12.0 4.8 1.5 1.3 1.1
Damion Lee 26 9.4 4.5 1.9 1.0 1.7
Draymond Green 31 8.1 7.4 5.5 0.7 1.4
Omari Spellman 18 7.0 4.4 0.9 0.9 1.1
Jordan Poole 21 7.0 2.0 1.7 1.2 1.3
Marquese Chriss 18 6.8 5.2 1.4 0.3 1.3

Utah @ Denver

We are still expecting to be out for Denver: Paul Millsap, Jamal Murray, Mason Plumlee. So continue to use Michael Porter, Monte Morris, and Malik Beasley in the mix.

Last meeting: April 2019

Not putting much weight into this matchup from last year. Just to note though, Monte Morris had scored over 20 points. They Mitchell and Gobert had very good games as this was not competitive for Utah with a 10 point win.

NBA Draftkings Showdown Slate Tutorial for 1/28/29

I NBA DFS on draftkings or any or site, the key is differentiation. When you can get well above the field, you can eventually hit gold.

As far as anything not mentioned on the video itself..

You also want to wait for the And1 rating system which is a rating system that includes all of the important factors for a particular slate:

GS @ Phil Captain Plays: GPP

Note: waiting on word of J. Embiid playing or not. hold on..

D. Russell: The high upside tournament play; For use on main slate GPP with upside as well.

Alec Burks: A solid play as even if it blows out bad he should still be in there.

E. Paschall or T. Harris: Depending on J. Embiid news. not sure I would go with Embiid here. I will fill in more later to determine chalk and exposure setting to recommend.

UTIL: A lot of this is news dependent as well. Don’t count out the reserves for Phila. as they should still get plenty of time out there with Embiid not wanting to push too hard as he comes back, especially with great potential for a blowout.

If you really want to shock the world, expect the Warriors to hang with them, using their studs mentioned to go off in this game. Its happened before this year, and no one expects it, giving you quite an edge.

B. Simmons, Al Horford, M. Chriss, D. Green, and D. Lee.

I will provide the best shots in MME soon.

Updates @ 6:45pm:

Embiid is playing.

Go with any captain you want as there should be no chalk tonight! No one is projecting even at 20% its wide open.

Ben Simmons is chalk. max him out at %60 as he could be 80% owned.

Underowned:

O. Spellman – go up to 50% as he is a good play tonight!

Go up to 40% on these guys as well, Severely underowned:

Shake Milton, Draymond, and Alec Burks looking very low owned!

 

 

NBA DFS Today Optimal GPP Showdown Builds for Draftkings on Jan. 24

I have reviewed this morning for you my own results in the showdown slates for Jan. 23rd and overview for the Jan. 24th showdown slates. The most interesting thing about this review exercise was the Ownership! Amazing for Draftkings plays to be this low owned.

Its difficult to find accurate ownership projections for a full game slate let alone for a showdown slate. This is the best way to go about it from yesterday’s slate showing then looking forward to today’s slate in the 2nd video. Bear with me if I’m a bit dry or boring because you have to get the concepts leading up to the next day and see how successfully the lineups run for you.

Here’s the Draftdashboard link

The Thursday results as promised

NBA DFS Today optimal GPP for 1/24Prep for today using the Dom Station

MIL/CHA plays today:

Captain: no need to go away from Yannis: 70-100 expose

Exposure settings recommended:

Biyombo is chalk: fade or min. %20

D. Graham: chalk max at 40-50%

Illysova: min 40%

Bender: min 40%

Bacon: over 25% low ownership

same with G. Hill today

Note: I also like Divicenzno today and DJ Wilson as super pint as he played well in last blowout

So let’s line em up for today. For basics of understanding of daily fantasy basketball using the tools and resources for NBA look to some of my previous articles for breakdowns.

Update as of 9:00pm.

I decided to give advice for which players to go overweight on according to what I can estimate optimizers will go for, thereby estimating ownership, which I confirmed is not readily available for showdown slates. Here’s the players you want to go %50 or more on when going for mass multi entry and see how it goes. These guys should be much lower then %40 owned overall, giving you high differentiation for this slate. I think we’re going to get a lot of different captains tonight so feel free to also mix them up. I would recommend Lillard, Ariza, and Whiteside in that order.

Hardaway

Porzingis

Top Captain Picks for Cash or GPP: LBJ:

It looks to me as if AD is out and LBJ will take over this game. It happens quite often. No one compares in consistency and upside. The Optimizer also likes him on DraftDashboard. I might go %80 here if playing a max 20 MME on Draftkings.

Utilities:

Cedi Osman. Has the most upside perhaps for the CAVS. You could also try and fit in Love and/or Thompson.

J. McGee Great stack partner here for Lebron, as he loves to assist guys cutting to the rim. You could also consider Kuzma in this spot.

If your going CAVS backcourt just stick with Garland and Sexton. Pretty obvious.

For more Lakers to stack, look at Danny Green, Avery Bradley, and/or KCP and hope 1 or 2 get hot from 3 pt. line.
