There are twelve NBA games on the main Wednesday December 20th slate at Draft Kings. I enjoy playing these large slates and I especially like to search for the right value plays to go along with high priced studs I’m targeting like Russell Westbrook and James Harden.
The contests begin at 7:00 pm tonight so be sure to check and see if the players you have selected are actually playing tonight.
The standard lineup at Draft Kings consists of one point guard, one shooting guard, one small forward, one power forward, one center, one guard, one forward and one utility player.
With all the high priced options tonight we are going to need to find some solid value plays. For me that means players priced at $5,000 dollars or less that have the upside to return anywhere from six times value or more.
I have three such players in great spots Friday that I would like you to consider.
Chicago Bulls SG/SF David Nwaba ($4300) has a terrific opportunity on Wednesday against an Orlando Magic defense allowing shooting guards to average 97 Draft Kings points per game over their past five games. Nwaba has exceeded seven times value in three of the past five games and is averaging 29.1 minutes per game over the past ten games and should be good to go on Wednesday night.
Over the past two games Phoenix Suns PG/SG Isaiah Canaan ($4500) has become a “thing” averaging 27 minutes per game and exceeding nine times value in both of these contests. Now that he is a bit more expensive that might dissuade owners from selecting him Wednesday. He does have an interesting matchup Wednesday against a Los Angeles Clippers defense allowing point guards to average 51.2 Draft Kings points per game over their past five so maybe you should consider looking at Canaan for Wednesday night?
Golden State Warriors SG/SF Andre Iguodala ($4300) has exceeded six times value in three of his past five games and has a great opportunity Wednesday against a Memphis Grizzlies defense allowing small forwards to average 86.3 Draft Kings points per game over their past five games and 55.3 Draft Kings points per game to point guards. Iguodala plays both and should see plenty of minutes on Wednesday night.
Good luck at Draft Kings!!
