 Benny's Daily Hoops - 12/6

Orlando Magic @ Washington Wizards

Vegas: Wizards -3.5, O/U: 198

Magic: 25th Pace, 29th Scoring, 3rd fewest points allowed

Wizards: 17th Pace, 18th Scoring, 11th most points allowed

The Wizards are on the tail end of a back-to-back, but I want to start by mentioning this, because of the noise surrounding Wall and Beal’s minutes. Look last week on the last B2B and you will see the minutes were the same. People said they did not play well on the tail end of the B2B, but they faced the Spurs. No one plays their best offensive game against the Spurs.

John Wall - I liked him a ton more yesterday in the paced up game, but he is still one of the better point guards who can contribute across the board. He has a matchup with DJ Augustin and Elf Payton, so it is pretty soft. My beef is the price, I really am not thrilled with paying up that high in a slower paced game.

 Jefe's NBA Rundown - 12/5

As always, the rundown is designed to give you an opinion on some different players or situations in the slate today. You need to be reacting to news throughout the day. Always keep an eye on Twitter for the most up-to-date information.

Point Guard

Thoughts: This is the position with the most flexibility on the slate. In tournaments, getting the point guards right will be the most critical. I say that because there isn’t a completely obvious play and there are options in every price range.

Russell Westbrook -- A great cash/GPP play for obvious reasons, so the question is just whether or not there’s enough value out there to make him the best option. I like him better on FanDuel since a more balanced lineup on DraftKings usually gives you more upside.

Denver Nuggets @ Philadelphia 76ers

Vegas: Nuggets -4, O/U: 209

Denver: 5th Pace, 9th Scoring, 4th most points allowed

Philadelphia: 16th Pace, 26th Scoring, 6th most points allowed

Neither team is good defensively here, so we should have a lot of solid fantasy stat lines.

Joel Embiid - Embiid is still reasonably priced for his production. The minutes cap is up to 28 and he has averaged 45+ FPts since they raised it last week. Even at 24 minutes, his floor was about 36 or 1.5 Fpts per minute. 40 seems like a reasonable floor assumption give the new minutes constraints.

We have a small four game slate starting at 6PM EST tonight for NBA DFS action. I’m going to walk through the games for you. I use DraftKings as the basis for my analysis, so the pricing I quote is from that site most often.

 

Orlando Magic @ Detroit Pistons

Vegas: Pistons -7, O/U: 195

Pistons: 25th Pace, 23rd scoring, 2nd fewest points allowed

Magic: 24th Pace, 29th Scoring, 3rd fewest points allowed

This is by far the worst spot for fantasy purposes. The other three games all have totals of 210+ and this one is fifteen points lower.

Posted by Thad Houston on Saturday, December 3, 2016 - 14:14

What's up y'all? This is the one and only RadThad with today's NBA article for Saturday, December 3rd. I decided to mix things up today, so instead of going game-by-game let’s go position-by-position. The games would be well over if I tried to list every juicy pick, so I'll settle for touching on a couple of my favorite plays from each position playing on the main slate.

Dallas Mavericks @ Charlotte Hornets

Vegas: Hornets -11, O/U: 194

The Hornets are 12th in pace with the Mavericks stuck back in 29th. The Hornets are 13th in scoring and the Mavericks are dead last in the league. Charlotte also allows the twelfth fewest points, two behind the Mavericks who do not allow a ton of points because of their slow pace. This is not the greatest spot to target for fantasy.

I am actually intrigued by the Mavericks today and I have not said that much all season. They have a few viable options, especially on DraftKings where the prices are criminally cheap. Deron Williams is back in the lineup. After watching Seth Curry go down with a knee injury in last night’s game, I think we will see more minutes for Williams today. He is only $4000 on DK, so he can easily pay that off.
