The makeup games are done. Now we get to the real round 12 of the DraftKings EuroLeague season. The larger part of round 12 is on this slate with five games. We have Olympiacos heading to Moscow to take on CSKA and Fenerbahce in St. Petersburg that both tip at noon eastern.
Red Star heads to Tel Aviv. That game tips at 2 Eastern. Athens in Milan tips at 2:45 Eastern. The “nightcap” is Berlin in Valencia, which tips at 3pm Eastern. Some players will miss out on the fun. Let’s get that out of the way first.
Out: Nando de Colo (thigh), Simone Fontecchio (ankle), Louis Labeyrie (ankle), Aaron Harrison (knee), Marcus Eriksson (ankle), Vanja Marinkovic (shoulder), Janis Strelnieks (hip), Joan Sastre (knee), Yovel Zoosman (hamstring).
Questionable: Johnny O’bryant (undisclosed), Ben Lammers (ankle), Langston Hall (undisclosed), Johnny Hamilton (illness).
Lammers hurt his ankle in the makeup game on Tuesday, but Berlin hasn’t said if he will be limited or not. Keep an eye on that. O’bryant’s issue once again seemed to be with the roster/paperwork in round 11. He should be healthy, but without official word, we really don’t know.
We do know that Shelvin Mack will be active today. He didn’t play in the makeup game on Tuesday because he wasn’t registered in the league when the game was originally scheduled. He’s good to go today.
Often in the EuroLeague season we see about ten players playing half the game. The upside on everyone is capped except for the few elites out there.
For DraftKings EuroLeague, we can’t expect 5x value like in the NBA. Most winning lineups are around 180-200 DraftKings points, which is around 3.5 – 4x value. Keep that in mind when mining for value picks.
