3 NBA DraftKings Studs to Target on 4/9/19
Russell Westbrook, PG, Oklahoma City Thunder
DraftKings Price: $11,400
While most teams have nothing to play for on the last couple of days of the season, that's not true of the Oklahoma City Thunder. If they drop their last two games and the San Antonio Spurs and Los Angeles Clippers win their final games, they'd be forced to face the Golden State Warriors in the first round. Nobody wants that. As such, we can count on Russell Westbrook to ball out for at least one more game.
Westbrook may have taken a step back in the scoring department this year, but he's certainly not dropped off anywhere else. He's averaging career highs in rebounds (11.0) and assists (10.7) and putting up a triple-double average for the third year in a row.
The Thunder will take on the Houston Rockets tonight, and they'd secure a 3-1 season-series win over them if they can take home the W tonight. Westbrook has scored at least 47.0 DraftKings points against Houston 14 games in a row and 53.75 or more in 13 of those.
He's coming to ball out, and good luck stopping him. James Harden is a perfectly solid option to use as well tonight. Heck, with all of the value available this evening you could probably fit both into your lineups. They're separated by 0.6 DraftKings points in our projections.
