NBA DFS FanDuel & DraftKings Core Plays (December 25)

FANDUEL

James Harden (BKN) (SG/PG) – $10,200

  • Merry Christmas everyone! We have NBA all throughout today so let’s jump straight in. It’s really unfortunate we won’t be able to watch KD and even Kyrie but that means we can target James Harden in DFS. If the Nets want to win, they will play Harden almost the entire game. He is by far my favorite spend up and is an elite play in all formats.

Talen Horton-Tucker (LAL) (SG/SF) – $5,000

  • THT hasn’t had the best season but lately, he has been playing more and for 5k, he becomes a great cash game option. If you plan on playing Harden, you will need to find value.

DRAFTKINGS

James Harden (BKN) (PG) – $10,700

  • Lock of the day. Nets vs Lakers is going to be a fun one to watch.

LeBron James (LAL) (PG/SF) – $10,800

  • It’s crazy to think that LeBron is turning 37 in a week. He has been a monster with AD out and I know I already have Harden at 10.7k but I think you pair him up with LeBron at 10.8k and just make it work on DK. Get your popcorn ready because it’s Christmas filled with NBA games!
