We are back with our edition of Core Four! We got seven games today on a jam-packed day. Let’s get to it and find those value plays to help you guys make some money!
All prices listed below are DraftKings
Chris Paul ($8,300)- Washington Wizards @ Oklahoma City Thunder
CP3 isn’t really setting the world on the fire this season, but he’s doing enough to still be considered an above-average player. On the year, he’s averaging 17.8 points, 4.9 rebounds, and 6.7 assists per game. He’s coming off a game where he put up 17 points, five rebounds, and five assists. The play here today is based on the matchup. The Wizards allow the 27th most amount of points to opposing point guards. CP3 is still an elite player and he will definitely capitalize on the very friendly matchup. Watch CP3 take advantage today and put up a very nice game!
Derrick White ($6,100) – San Antonio Spurs @ New Orleans Pelicans
White is doing everything he can to somehow push the Spurs into the playoffs. He is coming off a fabulous performance where he dropped 24 points, six rebounds and four assists in 33 minutes. That was good enough 44 fantasy points!white is getting all the run he can handle so the minutes aren’t an issue. He’s playing at an extremely high level right now and today’s matchup against the Pelicans, (who give up the 24th most points to opposing guards) makes White an even more enticing play. AND, to make a point to be locked into all lineups, he’s put up over 35 fantasy points in three of his last four games. Sign me up for White today as he’s my LOCK of the day.
Brandon Ingram ($8,500) New Orleans Pelicans vs San Antonio Spurs
Ingram is a star in the making. Plain and simple. There is no denying his talent is through the roof and he’s capable of dropping 50 on any given tonight. Without Zion Williamson hogging up minutes, and the ball, Ingram is in line for a huge, monster performance today against the Spurs. The Spurs give up the 28th most points to opposing forwards and Ingram will get all the run he can handle. Coming off a very nice performance where he put up 24 points, three rebounds, and three assists, he’s an easy play here. Spurs will do everything they can to contain Ingram but just don’t see it being enough!
Troy Brown Jr. ($5,800) Washington Wizards @ Oklahoma City Thunder
TBJ has been playing out of his mind since the “NBA reset” has begun. He is coming off his second 20-point, 10-rebound game. His confidence is through the roof and he’s playing close to 40 minutes a game! He is doing everything he physically is capable of pushing the Wizards to win games. Since the NBA reset has begun, he is averaging 16.7 points and 7.2 rebounds per game. As long as he’s red hot, no matchup will scare me away from riding him. I am locking him into every single lineup and enjoying the ride. He goes for 35+ fantasy points again today. Book it!
That does it for this edition of Core Four! Hope you guys enjoyed it. Stay safe and let’s make some money!
