DraftKings Thoughts – August 25

Posted on

An interesting slate today, with a couple of prices I am struggling to understand.

Here are a couple of players that have caught my eye at their respective salaries, and a couple to avoid.


  • Anett Kontaveit ($8,800) – One of my players to watch this week. A win over Teichmann is a great sign coming into a meeting with Bouzkova. A similar style of player in Jennifer Brady was dominant against Bouzkova yesterday. I am not reading too much into Bouzkova’s win over a rusty Kvitova. This looks a value inclusion.

Unforced Error

  • Novak Djokovic ($11,200) – Looked below his best yesterday. With a neck complaint, and an eye on next week, I would rather look elsewhere today, with him coming up against a quality opponent in Tennys Sandgren.

Value Pick

  • Matteo Berrettini ($5,900) – I am struggling to grasp this price, given he is a favourite in his match against Reilly Opelka. Looks to be a value addition to a team in my opinion. A 7-6 7-6 type result with a solid ace count would be a respectable score for his salary.

If you have any questions about any particular players, let me know on Twitter!
