Yeah, so this happened.
The DraftKings line was set at 24. JR had 22.8.
Moral of the story: I’m 1-1. Let’s try again.
Pick: Portland Trail Blazers forward Al-Farouq Aminu
FanDuel price: $4,800
DraftKings price: $5,000
Opponent: Minnesota Timberwolves
Since Jusuf Nurkic went down with a broken leg, Aminu’s role in the Blazers frontcourt has expanded. Though he probably won’t start tonight, the versatile forward will see substantial run. Over the last five, he’s averaging 14.6 points, 7.0 rebounds, 1.0 blocks, and 1.4 steals.
Portland played Minnesota a few days ago and Aminu had one of his best games of the season: 20 points, 7 rebounds, 5 assists, and 3 blocks. I wouldn’t expect that type of production, but anything close would suffice. The Wolves really struggle defensively and on the boards.
FanDuel success line: 25
DraftKings success line: 27
