United's Supercoach hot tip of the week: Round 19
Michael Randall for CODE Sports
Did you get on big Jo last round?
Jo Lual-Acuil's 30 NBL Supercoach points against South East Melbourne on the weekend might not look like a monster score but, dig a little deeper, and it's gold.
The points came in just 19 minutes, and left him ranked fourth among all centre-eligible players in NBL Supercoach.
His price did jump - up $19,000 to $358,200 - making him the most expensive active centre in the game.
Regardless, he's also someone you just have to have, given his ability to explode. He's averaging 50.3 Supercoach points over his last three rounds but is in just 3.1 per cent of teams, making him the ultimate POD play.
Given it's finals time, cash generation probably isn't a high priority, but, with coach Dean Vickerman showing his hand with some big minutes for his bench against South East Melbourne, young gun Flynn Cameron (G, $92,900) has emerged as a genuine cheap option who could provide a solid bench score, while making a big leap in price.
He's oozing confidence coming off his best game of the season with 16 Supercoach points. With a break even of -1, all he has to do is step on the court to increase in price.
