DraftKings EuroLeague Basketball Picks November 17th
The greater part of the ninth round begins with a two-round week of DraftKings EuroLeague tournaments. We still have some injury concerns and some COVID cases that could threaten games so make sure you stay up to date by following the official EuroLeague Twitter account. You’re faster with updates than me.
From: Nando de Colo (calf), Bryant Dunston (eye), Patricio Garino (knee), Vanja Marinkovic (shoulder), Sam Van Rossom (knee), Johannes Voigtmann (illness), Janis Strelnieks (hip), Joan Sastre (not known)), Alexander Chomenko (illness).
Questionable: Shane Larkin (not known), Nemanja Nedovic (not known), Devin Booker (leg), Rodrigue Beaubois (face), Marius Grigonis (toe), Stefan Jovic (not known), Joffrey Lauvergne (leg), Rokas Jokubaitis ( Coronavirus), Sergey Monia (back), Zach Auguste (not known), Egor Vialtsev (Achilles), Tolga Gecim (not known), Ivan Ukhov (not known).
Larkin was thought to play last week, but Efes stopped him. It’s widely believed that he plays here, but we all know who this is. If he does, Larkin will likely be in a limit considering he hasn’t played since October 30th.
Jokubaitis passed the two most recent COVID tests so he is on the right track. However, expect him to be restricted after almost a month of missing out on action.
In the EuroLeague season, we often see around ten players playing half the game. The benefit to everyone is limited except for the few elites out there.
For DraftKings EuroLeague we cannot expect 5 times the value as in the NBA. Most winning lineups are 180-200 DraftKings points, which is 3.5 to 4 times the value. Keep this in mind when looking for value picks.
