NBA DFS: Livi’s Locks – January 8by Josh Livi January 8, 2021 0 comments
We are back with another edition of Livi’s Locks.
We have a jam-packed, star-studded night of basketball coming up beginning at 7:00 pm, EST. As usual, I will give you my three favorite plays of the night who will make you a lot of money!
We have 10 games tonight so let’s get to it.
All prices below are DraftKings.
James Harden, G – $11,000 vs. Orlando Magic
We are gonna splurge a little on Harden tonight and it’s purely matchup based. Harden is averaging a double-double as well with 29.4 points and 11 assists per game. The Magic give up the 24th most points to opposing guards and tonight is no exception. Harden will feast on the Markelle Fultz-less Magic team. Harden has also scored over 43 fantasy points in every single game this year. Lock him in and enjoy the ride.
RJ Barrett, F – $6,900 vs. Oklahoma City Thunder
RJ gets the lock here. He’s been shooting the ball a lot better recently and is averaging 17.1 points, 7.3 rebounds, and 3.4 assist per game. He is also putting up over 20 fantasy points in every single game played so far this year. This Thunder team gives up the 19th most points to opposing forwards, and with RJ getting heavy minutes, he will put on a show at the Garden tonight. Lock him in.
Mitchell Robinson, C – $5,700 vs. Oklahoma City Thunder
Mitch gets the nod here. It is pretty obvious that he’s our anchor down-low alongside Julius Randle. Mitch is having a very solid season averaging 8.6 points, 8.5 rebounds, and 1.9 blocks per game. He has put up over 25 fantasy points in all but two games this year and he’ll continue his streak tonight against a 30th ranked Thunder team against the opposing big men. Mitch should continue to see heavy minutes and he’s a lock for over 25 fantasy points. Lock him in.
That does it for this edition of Livi’s Locks. Good luck!
