Top NBA DraftKings and FanDuel Plays For Tuesday Jan 12th

A lot of value has opened up in Miami. We have lost Butler, Adebayo, Dragic, Bradley, Nunn, Okpapa, and Harkless to Covid today. It is likely Heat will have 9 players, but if Leonard is still out with a shoulder injury they will be running with 8 much like the 76ers game this weekend. This game isn’t available on FanDuel, but if you’re playing in DraftKings and find a lineup with no Heat players the odds you’ll end up with a perfect slate are nearly zero. At least one if not multiple players will be needed from heat in your lineups tonight to win a tournament just due to the value being so high.

Our top Heat players to take a look at are Tyler Herro, Kelly Olynyk, and possibly even a near minimum salary Precious Achiuwa who will see his minutes go from the low teens to mid-30s tonight. The Sixers can’t let this one get away from them as they already lost the last 2 straight due to Covid so Embiid and Simmons will come out hot, but look for them to be sitting in the fourth with a hefty lead.

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