Huge 12 game NBA slate for us today. With tons of great options to choose from, I will highlight some plays that stand out for value. Today I will be playing a midrange lineup, without compromising upside at a single position.

Here’s a balanced lineup For DFS Basketball 1/27/21 (using DraftKings Values)

      PG     C. Paul                                       $7,600 (DK) 

      SG      __________                               $4,300 (DK)

      SF     M. Bridges                                 $5,300 (DK) 

      PF        __________                               $7,500 (DK) 

      C     D. Ayton                                       $7,300 (DK)

      G      __________                                  $6,100 (DK) 

      F      __________                                  $3,000 (DK)

      Util   R. Gobert                                   $7,200 (DK)

The Phoenix Suns are one of my primary targets for today. Devin Booker remains out which opens tons of usage for everyone else. Chris Paul dominated last game without booker, scoring 56.8 FPTS. Paul saw a huge usage boost last game and will remain the only ball handler in the starting lineup. $7,600 is far too cheap considering Paul’s role today.

Staying on the topic of the Suns, Mikal Bridges is grossly underpriced. $5,300 for the third highest usage player on the roster is an absolute steal. Bridges should play massive minutes today, averaging over 35 minutes in the last ten days. Bridges is averaging over 30 FPTS in that span and will have far more usage then normal today. Bridges is a core forward for me on this slate. 

While were on the topic, we may as well discuss Deandre Ayton. Another suns player who should receive a massive minute’s boost. Ayton is the last Sun in my core lineup. $7,300 is a curious tag for a player averaging almost 50 FPTS through the last ten days. In this spot without Booker, Ayton can easily break the slate at this price.

Is Draftkings just going to underprice Rudy Gobert all season? He is averaging almost 40 FPTS on the year yet is priced at $7,200. Gobert scored over 50 FPTS last night and his price remains untouched. Gobert is priced for his floor today and is an easy lock for me.

Now what do you get if you sign up now?
• More underpriced midrange plays 

• My favorite play on the slate
• the best punt tonight

Jordan Clarkson – SG ($5,900 DK) Clarkson will likely be in the starting lineup today and should see a massive minute’s boost. Clarkson is averaging over 30 FPTS through the last ten days and scored over 32 FPTS last game. At this price Clarkson is easily my favorite play on the entire slate, on both DraftKings and FanDuel.

Gordon Hayward – PF ($7,500 DK) Hayward has been on a tear lately, averaging 47 FPTS through his last ten days. However, DraftKings has priced him lightly today. Hayward works perfectly in midrange rosters which is my preferred lineup construction for today. 

Mike Conley – G ($6,100 DK) Conley should see a nice usage boost today with injuries for Utah. Conley scored over 36 FPTS last game and is averaging over 32 FPTS across the last ten days. If Conley gets a small production boost with the massive increase in usage, he will be one of the best plays for today.

Anthony Gill – F ($3,000 DK) There are not a lot of solid plays under $4,000 today. Gill is not the most exciting play; however, he is a strong punt. Gill got the start yesterday and scored 16 FPTS. Gil should get more usage today and the price allows you to build a strong lineup around him.

Make Sure you follow news and starting lineups tonight, that was key to winning yesterday.
