Top NBA DraftKings and FanDuel Plays For Monday Jan 11th

Joel Embiid is in a great position tonight against Atlanta with a depleted 76ers squad. His minutes will likely be pushed to a max for him, but we are calling a lock on Tyrese Maxey at $4700DK/$5200 FD. Last game he was a 13x value and owned by enough that he was a slate breaker for anyone that didn’t have him. We don’t expect 61.25 pts from him again tonight, but he should very easily hit value and likely end up around a 10x value as he goes up against one of the worst teams in the league and defending the ball handler. On the runback Trae Young has had a string of bad games and could bounce back with Simmons off the floor for Covid.

The Raptors and Trailblazers are the projected high scoring matchup tonight and it should be a shootout battle. Lillard is coming off a sub-par performance against the Kings and should rebound against a Raptors team that allows 16.4 pts over the NBA average against the PG.

Let’s take a look at tonight’s available slates for lineup optimization for DraftKings and FanDuel.
