We are back with another edition of Livi Locks. Now that the NFL season has come to an end, we turn our attention to making money by killing it with NBA DFS. We have eight games beginning at 7 PM, EST, and I am here to give you my three favorite plays of the night. We will find the best guard, forward, and center plays for you in order to ensure you make money and lots of it. So, let’s get to it and make some money!
Luka Doncic – Dallas Mavericks vs Minnesota Timberwolves
He is coming off a career night where he went head to head with arguably the league’s best player in Steph Curry. Luka scored a career-high 42 points, hitting seven threes, seven rebounds, 11 assists, and one steal. He has scored over 42 fantasy points in each of his last 11 consecutive games, and with a pretty easy matchup here against the TimberWolves, locking in Doncic is one of the easiest plays of the night. He could crack 70 fantasy points tonight.
Luguentz Dort – Oklahoma City Thunder at Los Angeles Lakers
Lu came back from a knee injury on Friday night to play 32 minutes. He compiled 10 points, six rebounds, three assists, and two steals. With that stat line and the heavy minutes, that is every fantasy owner’s dream come true. Yes, the matchup tonight is a bit tough, but with the heavy minutes, Lu can easily fill up the stat sheet. He is cheap, and he’ll make a lot of owners happy. He is one of my sleepers of the night.
DeMarcus Cousins – Houston Rockets at Charlotte Hornets
Cousins got the start in place of the injured Christian Wood, and he put on a show. Cousins went off for 12 points, 11 rebounds, two assists, two blocks, and added a steal in 30 minutes of action. The Hornets aren’t a very good team, let’s be honest, and Cousins will manhandle Cody Zeller in the paint tonight en route to another monster performance. Easy play here, let’s LOCK in Cousins and watch him put on a show tonight.
That does it for this edition of Livi Locks. Best of luck!
