Point Guards

I’m certain on this three game slate there will be plenty who will roster Russell Westbrook ($13,100) but I won’t be one of them. Instead I think I will save the three grand and go with Washington Wizards point guard John Wall ($10,200) against a Phoenix Suns defense allowing point guards to average 45.9 FanDuel points per game this season and over their past five have allowed point guards to average 54.5 FanDuel points per game.

Value plays tonight under $6000 bucks include Tyler Ulis ($5300) and Yogi Ferrell ($5100).

Shooting Guards

Not a fan of tonight’s shooting guards. I suppose the best opportunity tonight belongs to Phoenix Suns shooting guard Devin Booker ($6000) against a Washington Wizards defense allowing shooting guards to average 33.6 FanDuel points per game this season and 41.9 FanDuel points per game over the past five games. In 31 home games this season Booker is averaging 29.21 FanDuel points per game with a home Usage Rate of 27.2 percent with a True Shooting percentage of 53 percent.
