Best NBA DFS Picks for November 11, 2017
John Wall vs. ATL (DraftKings 9.6, FanDuel 10.1k)
John Wall is on a mission this year trying to nab that MVP trophy. He’s averaging a double-double with 21 points and 10.2 assists, plus 46 points and 14 dimes in his last two outings. Wall is always a double-double threat and flirts with triple-doubles occasionally. The Wizards are going up against a weak Atlanta team tonight, so look for him to take advantage.
Eric Gordon vs. MEM (6.3k DraftKings, 6.1k FanDuel)
Eric Gordon has been lights out for the Houston Rockets and is a nasty threat from behind the arc. In Mike D’Antoni’s 3-point-obsessed offense, Gordon has found a great home. He’s averaging 22.8 points and 3.9 made 3s per game. In his last three, Gordon has scored exactly 20 points each time to go with six total steals. The Rockets are averaging 104.1 points a game, and Gordon is a major reason why.
Andrew Wiggins @ PHX (7k DraftKings, 6.5k FanDuel)
Andrew Wiggins has been a beast this year. He is attacking the hoop often and already has some highlight dunks. As for tonight, the Suns are terrible are on defense, allowing 115.8 points a game. Wiggins, who is averaging 19.6 points and 4.7 boards per game, could easily pour in 30 tonight.
Others to consider: Devin Booker, James Harden, Steph Curry, Jrue Holiday
Brandon Ingram @ MIL (6k DraftKings, 6.5k FanDuel)
Brandon Ingram has turned into the go-to guy for the Los Angeles Lakers, averaging 15.1 points a game. Tonight, he goes up against a Bucks team on a back-to-back, so he should be due for a big game. Ingram has tallied two double-doubles this year and has scored at least 18 points in three of his past four games.
T.J. Warren vs. MIN (6.2k DraftKings, 7k FanDuel)
The Phoenix Suns started this season in turmoil, but T.J. Warren has been a bright spot. He’s averaging 17.2 points and 5.8 boards a game, and don’t forget his 40-point effort a few games back. Minnesota lets opponents score 111.2 points a game, good for 27th in the NBA. Warren has at least 16 points and five boards in the last three contests.
LeBron James @ DAL (10.8k DraftKings,11.8k FanDuel)
LeBron James and his Cavaliers haven’t started the season the way they wanted, but James is still putting up godly numbers: seven double-doubles and a 57-point game. He’s averaging 29.3 points, 7.0 rebounds, and 8.9 assists per game. Look for James to take out some frustration on the lowly Mavericks in this Saturday night matchup.
Others to Consider: Harrison Barnes, Evan Fournier, Robert Covington
DeMarcus Cousins vs. LAC (10.9k DraftKings, 11.8k FanDuel)
Now that DeMarcus Cousins is used to the Pelicans’ offense, he has been unstoppable. He’s averaging a ridiculous 28.2 points, 13.8 rebounds, and 5.8 assists per game this season. In the last five games, he’s totaled at least 20 points and nine boards each time. He even turned in a 20-point, 22-rebound game in that stretch. The Kentucky product is a must-start against the Clippers.
Nikola Vucevic @ DEN (7.4k DraftKings, 8.4k FanDuel)
The Orlando Magic have had a great start to the season, and Nikola Vucevic has been playing inspired ball to the tune of 18 points and 7.7 boards per game. He has two double-doubles on the year and has logged at least one assist in every game. Just like his burgeoning star teammate Aaron Gordon, Vucevic is expanding his game and shoots just over four 3s a game, hitting just under two a contest.
Others to Consider: Joel Embiid, Enes Kanter, Kevin Love
