DraftKings EuroLeague Basketball Picks November 18th November
We only have three games on the DraftKings EuroLeague list today, with Barcelona and Olympiacos suspended due to local COVID quarantine rules. These are still a solid three games, none of which appear to be under threat from COVID. Let’s jump in!
From: Norris Cole (thigh), Peyton Siva (coronavirus), Luigi Datome (not known), Jeffery Taylor (ankle), William Howard (pelvis), Yovel Zoosman (thigh).
Questionable: Othello Hunter (head), Fabien Causeur (coronavirus), Louis Olinde (groin).
Hunter is expected to try to play both games this week but keep your eyes peeled. Its availability may not be announced until shortly before the notice. I recommend following the official EuroLeague Twitter account. They’re usually pretty quick with updates.
Real Madrid expect Causeur to be active but he is unlikely to play any more than he did before contracting COVID. There is no advantage here.
Alex Poythress violated all of my lineups yesterday. Today should be a better day. At least I hope it will.
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.
