NBA Cash Core, December 11th
It’s been a busy day so I will try to get to the write up portion later but I wanted to get my core posted up.
John Wall – PG – 9.5k
This game between the Wizards and Pelicans has the second highest O/U on the night at 213 but may be the fastest paced. New Orleans continues to have trouble stopping opposing PGs, giving up 12% more points than average. John Wall has been inconsistent for much of the season but he’s scored 55+ FP in four of his L6 games and I believe he could reach 50 again tonight.
Gordon Hayward – SF – 7.0k
Hayward finds himself in my core again due to his extremely consistent play. He’s stepped his game up since Gobert went down and his price doesn’t quite match his recent production. Sometimes it can be tough to roster Jazz players but against OKC, they should be forced to play quicker than usual. Hayward has five straight games of 34+ FP and has been playing 35+ minutes on average.
Klay Thompson – SG – 6.6k – If Klay does not play tonight, it would be wise to try and play Curry and/or Draymond Green. That could mean not playing John Wall due to price. Gotta love NBA DFS!
The highest O/U on the night belongs to GSW/BOS at 215 and I’d like a piece of the action. We all have seen the train that the Warriors are running on the league and despite Boston’s improved defense I don’t foresee them derailing GS tonight. Klay seems to have found his rhythm despite some ankle issues but I’ll take my chances on him at his current salary. Four of his L5 have gone for 32+, including a 50 FP outing. IT2 could give Curry more problems than most defenders which could mean more shots for Klay.
Gorgui Dieng – C – 4.5k
Dieng burned me when they faced the Lakers but it wasn’t enough to scare me away. He’s been averaging 28 min/gm over the L5 and 18 FP – which is all he would need to hit value. He has a superb match up tonight against Denver and I think if he can get 30 minutes again he should have no problem reaching value. For 4.5k, he’s a great punt allowing you to spend up on a busy night!
