3 Value Picks For NBA DFS Thursday– Dec. 6, 2018

Dec. 6, 2018, Thursday, only has a three-game slate but in no way should it discourage you to pick your best lineup in a pool of SIX teams.

One strategy that I’d like to use is to go mid-heavy, that is, selecting players with middling salaries and go from there. Here are some of the choices that come to mind:

Gordon Hayward, SF, Boston Celtics

FanDuel: $6,400

DraftKings: $6,100

Yahoo: $23

Finally! Hayward exploded the last time out with 30 points, nine rebounds, eight assists, and two steals but even 60% of that production is fine by me. Hopefully, this is a sign of things to come for Hayward. There is also a little skirmish between teammate Marcus Smart and Hayward so we are also hoping that will lit more fire underneath the Butler University product.

Al-Farouq Aminu, PF, Portland Trail Blazers

FanDuel: $5,900

DraftKings: $5,200

Yahoo: $15

The Blazers have lost three straight but no one can point fingers at Aminu as he strung up three very solid games in that stretch, including a 20-point, 9-rebound performance against San Antonio and a 12-point, 13-rebound double-double against Dallas. Phoenix is one of the worst defensive teams in the league so I see no reason how Aminu could not get his share.

DeAndre Ayton, C, Phoenix Suns

FanDuel: $6,700

DraftKings: $6,700

Yahoo: $28

Without Devin Booker and TJ Warren, somebody has to score for the Suns so why not Ayton? The No. 1 overall draft pick hit a tough stretch lately but after being called out by Igor Kokoskov for his effort, Ayton may use this game to re-establish his post repertoire.
