NBA Finals Game 2: 10 Player Prop Bets

The Toronto Raptors look to take a stranglehold 2-0 series lead against the Golden State Warriors, who will be missing Kevin Durant (again) for Game #2. Interestingly the Warriors are 7-7 in the NBA Finals without Kevin Durant, and are 8-1 with him. Therefore, the Warriors will rely heavily on the Splash Brothers to carry the load on offense as the rest of their lineup doesn't scare anybody - Green, Iguodala, Bell, Looney, Livingston - all usually struggle to create their own shots. Although Read More

NBA 2018-19 Finals Prediction and Game 1 Betting Tips

Golden State Warriors may be one of the greatest teams ever assembled, and there starting five consist of All-Stars including Kevin Durant, Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green and DeMarcus Cousins. Warriors are looking to join NBA's elite three-peat championship company, and cement themselves as one of the best dynasty's ever. However, as a sports bettor, I often find myself looking for "value" bets. And in this particular NBA Finals, the Toronto Raptors' led by Kawhi Leonard and Kyle Read More

Best Bargain Options For NBA Playoffs DFS– April 15, 2019

Bargain-hunting will be extra hard in the playoffs but there are some really solid bargain options in a two-game playoff Monday. Let's consider five Best Bargain Options For NBA Playoffs DFS-- April 15, 2019:
1.) Boban Marjanovic, C, Philadelphia 76ers

Joel Embiid played a little less than 25 minutes in Game 1 and still was pretty dominant. However, if his playing time is any indication, he is not 100% and is considered questionable going into Game 2.

Whatever the case, this will open up Read More

Best Value Picks For NBA DFS Wednesday– April 10, 2019

It's the last game of the NBA regular season and it's a little tricky picking up players for your DFS squad because teams are resting key players left and right. However, we still have lots of options especially the super rookies.
The Studs
Trae Young, PG, Atlanta Hawks

Young is not on the injury report against the Pacers and there is a big chance he'll suit up for the final game of the season. Ice Trae has made the Rookie of the Year race a bit more interesting down the stretch, averaging Read More

5 Awesome NBA Stats of the Day

1. Dwyane Wade and the art of the pump fake.

Wade and pump fakes are pretty much synonymous but how good is he exactly with these weapons? Someone did the math, and they have the stats:

“Around 1,350 players, give or take, have played at least a single minute against the Miami HEAT since Wade was drafted in 2003. And he got 339 of them to jump.”
“Which means Wade got 25% of all the players he ever played against to bite.”

John Salmons was the worst offender (9 times), followed Read More

Mario Hezonja and the Best Bargains for NBA DFS Tuesday– Apr. 9, 2019

Mario Hezonja, SF, New York Knicks

I honestly don't know if Mario is SUPER until some three games ago. He has three-game averages of 25 points, 10.3 rebounds, 6.7 rebounds, and 1.7 steals. Hezonja is getting all the run he can handle at that span, playing at least 34 minutes each.
Jamal Crawford, PG, Phoenix Suns

It's either the Suns want JC on a team by the start of next season or they are just flat-out undermanned. Whatever the case, Crawford has been delivering the goods lately averaging Read More

Alex Caruso and the Best Bargains For NBA DFS Sunday– April 7, 2019

Alex Caruso, SG, Los Angeles Lakers

Caruso finally got his chance and with his confidence at an all-time high, he turned a career-best performance against the Clippers: 32 points, 10 rebounds, and 5 assists. He was the only Laker in the past few years outside of Kobe and LeBron to record such.

The Lakers will be up against the Jazz but Caruso's potential to play upwards of 30 minutes is too tantalizing to pass up.
Enes Kanter, C, Portland Trail Blazers

Kanter is averaging a double-double Read More

Richaun Holmes and the Best Bargain Options for NBA DFS Wednesday– April 3, 2019

It's time to go bargain-hunting again on a 12-game Wednesday.
Richaun Holmes, C, Phoenix Suns

Without DeAndre Ayton possible for the rest of the season, Holmes will get some significant playing time from here on out. He had a nice double-double in a win over Cleveland and played 24 minutes. If he can somehow control his penchant for fouling, we can see another big night from Holmes.

Another option in a Suns uniform would be Dragan Bender, who is actually playing more minutes than Holmes Read More

Sterling Brown and the Best Bargain Options For NBA DFS Monday– April 1, 2019

Sterling Brown, SG, Milwaukee Bucks

With the Bucks firmly holding the best record in the NBA, Milwaukee is looking to rest key guys and play some of their younger ones. With Giannis, Khris Middleton, and Eric Bledsoe all out for load management, Sterling Brown came through with a career-game-- 27 points, nine rebounds, three assists, and three steals against Atlanta. The Bucks are on the second night of a back-to-back in Brooklyn but Brown has got young legs, so I don't see that as a problem.
Shaquille Read More

Dewayne Dedmon and the Best Bargains For NBA DFS Friday– Mar. 29, 2019

Time to go bargain-hunting again on a Friday night, starting with Hawks center Dewayne Dedmon.
Dewayne Dedmon, C, Atlanta Hawks

Dedmon combines the rare skill of creating space as a shooting center with the willingness to bang with anyone inside. He is averaging 17.7 points, 8.7 rebounds, and a steal over the past three games, all Hawks wins. He has drilled SEVEN treys during that span on 12 attempts.
Dwayne Bacon, SG, Charlotte Hornets

With Nicolas Batum and Jeremy Lamb unavailable, Read More
