PREGAME UPDATES

THE SLATE

We're going with an abridged version of the article today, but will stick to the normal process.

The over/unders for all six games are within six points of each other, so focus more on injury situations than expected pace on the final day of Round 20.

FC Barcelona at CSKA Moscow

Key Injuries: Nikola Mirotic (BAR), Brandon Davies (BAR), Victor Claver (BAR), Will Clyburn (CSK), Daniel Hackett (CSK)

Best Bets for Success

  • Mike James  - averaging 8.1 more points on DraftKings than anyone else on the slate.
  • Nikola Milutinov - recorded a double-double Wednesday and in six of the last seven Rounds.
  • Nick Calathes - CSKA ranks third-worst in assists allowed to opposing guards.

DFS Darlings: Pierre Oriola

Panathinaikos OPAP Athens at Fenerbahce Beko Istanbul

DFS Darlings: Austin Hollins

LDLC ASVEL at Olympiacos Piraeus

Key Injuries: William Howard (ASV), Amine Noua (ASV), Kostas Papanikolaou (OLY), Aaron Harrison (OLY)

Best Bets for Success

  • Kostas Sloukas - Few have been more productive of late.
  • Norris Cole - Olympiacos is allowing plenty of points and threes to opposing guards.

DFS Darlings: Shaq McKissic, Moustapha Fall

Real Madrid at FC Bayern Munich

Key Injuries: Anthony Randolph (MAD), Sergio Llull (MAD), Rudy Fernandez (MAD), Nihad Dedovic (MUN), Zan Sisko (MUN)

Best Bets for Success

  • Walter Tavares - Will no doubt be focused on a better showing after having his worst game of the season last time these sides matched up.
  • Wade Baldwin - With Jalen Reynolds contending with Tavares and Vladimir Lucic playing in just his third game since returning, Baldwin – under the $9,000-mark on DraftKings gets the top spot.

DFS Darlings: Alex Tyus, D.J. Seeley

Crvena Zvezda mts Belgrade at Valencia Basket

Key Injuries: Jordan Loyd (RED), Landry Nnoko (RED), Marko Simonovic (RED), Bojan Dubljevic (PAM), Vanja Marinkovic (PAM)

Best Bets for Success

  • Johnny O'Bryant - Valencia is giving up the most points and rebounds to players at the forward positions.
  • Mike Tobey - Red Star has done a good job against centers, but they are a bit short-handed in the post and Dubljevic remains sidelined.

DFS Darlings: Klemen Prepelic, Dejan Davidovac
