Point Guard – Our featured site for the point guard position is FanDuel
John Wall (WAS) – Wall ranks as our top point guard option this evening in a favorable matchup against the Rockets. Houston ranks 25th in defensive efficiency against point guards and they’ve shown virtually no improvement since promoting Patrick Beverley to the starting lineup; ranking 22nd in defensive efficiency against point guards over their last 10 games. The Wizards have the highest implied team total this evening (just under 110 points) in a game that pits two of the Top 10 teams in pace. Wall’s price tag is more affordable on DraftKings ($8,700) than FanDuel ($9,200) but with fewer top end options in play this evening, Wall earns cash game consideration industry wide.
