DraftKings EuroLeague basketball picks December 30
Round 17 of the DraftKings EuroLeague tournaments concludes with a four game slate today. We tip off with Fenerbahce hosting Villeurbanne at 12:45 Eastern. 15 minutes later Red Star hosts Athens in Belgrade. Half hour later, Barcelona tips in Munich. We top it off at 2:45 Eastern with Milan hosting CSKA. This is going to be a good one. First we have to see who is sitting out.
Out: Jordan Loyd (coronavirus), Moustapha Fall (ribs), Guerschon Yabusele (undisclosed), Will Clyburn (foot), Landry Nnoko (undisclosed), Langston Hall (groin), William Howard (pelvis), Victor Claver (foot), Thomas Huertel (buyout), Marko Simonovic (undisclosed).
Questionable: Vladimir Lucic (back), Brandon Davies (calf), Vladimir Micov (undisclosed), Ali Muhammed (undisclosed), Zan Sisko (muscle), Joel Bolomboy (non-COVID illness), Zach Auguste (ankle), Alex Perez (calf).
Mack is expected to return for Athens in a good situation. It’s likely that Davies will play, but make sure to find an official report before you lock him in.
Even if Auguste does return, he has now missed a little over a month so I would doubt he plays meaningful minutes.
I whiffed on everything yesterday thanks to Dragan Bender and other failed forward value picks. Walter Tavares laying an egg didn’t help either.
Often in the EuroLeague season we see about ten players playing half the game. The upside on everyone is capped except for the few elites out there.
For DraftKings EuroLeague, we can’t expect 5x value like in the NBA. Most winning lineups are around 180-200 DraftKings points, which is around 3.5 – 4x value. Keep that in mind when mining for value picks.
