FanDuel NBA DFS 1/27/19 Value Plays

@TheCombineJosh gives his best value plays for the day

There are 7 games on the NBA DFS main slate for Sunday, January 27th and here are The Combine Presidente’s value picks for the day.  I typically play one lineup per night on FanDuel for fun and you can check my results from the previous night at the bottom of the article.  Follow @TheCombineSports and @TheCombineJosh on Twitter for updated information.


MIL @ OKC (MIL -1, O/U 234.5)

TOR @ DAL (TOR -5, O/U 219)

ORL @ HOU (HOU -8, O/U 221)

UTAH @ MIN (UTAH -4, O/U 219)

WAS @ SA (SA -4.5, O/U 221)

MIA @ NYK (MIA -5, O/U 210.5)

PHO @ LAL (LAL -7, O/U 224.5)


Value Plays:

PG Rajon Rondo ($6700)

  • Not the cheapest… but Rondo should do well against a weak PHO team that is weak at PG. Triple double?

SG Kentavious Caldwell-Pope ($4200)

  • I’ve chosen him a few times lately and gotten a solid 4-5x most times… he could do even better with some expected garbage minutes and a short bench tonight.

SF Rudy Gay ($5800)

  • My gut is telling me SA sits Derozan again tonight in a winnable game vs WAS… which as long as Gay is good to go, makes him a must play at that price.
  • (Bonus pick: Kelly Oubre ($6000), barring update on Derozan/Gay, I’m playing both tonight).

PF James Johnson ($3700)

  • I’m going cheap here so I can afford some big names tonight. Follow me on twitter for where I’m putting those extra dollars tonight.
  • (Bonus pick: Aaron Gordon ($6700), if you aren’t relying on superstars and want a balanced lineup)

C Hassan Whiteside ($7100)

  • This is a risky one since Whiteside can just as easily get ejected as he can put up 20 rebounds and 5 blocks tonight… not much value at C tonight.
  • (Bonus pick: JaVale McGee($4400), needed if you want multiple superstars tonight)


Presidente’s Lock of the Night:

SG Kentavious Caldwell-Pope ($4200)
