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 Playoffs Predictions Round 2: Celtics Should Not Fear The Deer

Well, my Round 1 predictions are pretty much spot on except for the Thunder-Blazers series where everyone, including me, picked OKC to win. My reason was that Jusuf Nurkic is too big a piece to lose in the playoffs and Enes Kanter is light years away defensively compared to Nurk. However, I did not know Damian Lillard can do this. Or this. In Portland's case, I have never been happier to be proven wrong. OK, so let's move to the next round and let's see what's going on. Here are my NBA Playoffs Read More

3 Things Cavs Need To Do To Win Game 3

1.) Play With Fire And Desperation

The NBA Finals is more than just X's and O's. After all, Cleveland and Golden State have faced each other for the fourth consecutive time in the Finals already.

What was lacking in the Cavs so far this series is the aggressive play that almost had them steal Game 1. Tristan Thompson making his presence felt, Larry Nance, Jr. having a hand on passing lanes, etc.Β  (Nance had three deflections, four loose balls recovered, four contested shots and seven box Read More

January 4th DraftKings Lineup.

I hope everyone had a chance to use the core lineup I gave on Monday. DeRozan had a career night and the other 4 had point totals well above their FPPG average. Nurkic and Valentine were both under 5% owned.

Tonight is only a 2 game slate, my wheelhouse is 5-9 games in a night, but I was able to create a lineup that looked decent. My 8 player team broke down to 4 different FPPG tiers; 2 in the 40s, 2 in the 30s, 2 in the 20s and 2 in the 10s.

The 40s- Durant 48.8, Paul 42.2
