Saturday Recap and 4 picks for Sunday, November 11th

I fell into some foul trouble with Cunningham and Matthews had an off night, that cost me the Quints and GPPs. I was able to cash a couple of 50/50s, I hope you used the 4 pick I gave out and had better luck filling in the rest of your lineup. 4 Picks for Sunday Clint Capela Clint Capela is a double double machine this season. He has 8 double doubles in the 10 games he has played. He could be putting up Embiid like numbers if he could hit his free throw. He is only shooting 54% from Read More

Raptors Hot Start and 4 Players You Need in Your DraftKings Lineup for Saturday, November 10th

  The Raptors Look Unstoppable I was worried about the DeRozan/Kawhi trade when it first happened. I wasn’t concerned about the value, the Raptors won the trade, I was worried about Kawhi wanting to play in Toronto. My worries were laid to rest a few games into the season Kawhi leads the team in PPG with 26, rebounds with 8, steals with 1.8 and he will be a candidate for DPOY. Danny Green came over in the trade as well and he is been great for Toronto whether he is starting or Read More

The Pistons and Blake’s 50 Point Night, The First Place Denver Nuggets and 4 Must-Plays on DraftKings for Wednesday, October 24th.

Blake Griffin’s Career Night Blake Griffin showed that he can still dominate an NBA basketball game. Griffin scored a career high 50 points, including the game winning layup and 1 in OT to win the game. Blake had 14 rebounds to go along with his 50 points and he added 6 assists. Heading into the season I didn’t have the Pistons making the playoffs, sample size is too small to change my mind, but they have been playing well enough to win. The Pistons are 3-0 under new coach Dwane Casey Read More

Melee at Staples Center, Jokic’s perfect night and 4 must plays for Sunday, October 21st.

Crazy Finish in L.A. LeBron’s first game at Staples Center was definitely a memorable one. James score 24 points, 5 assists, 5 rebounds, 2 steals and 1 block, nobody cares about that at all because of what happened late in the 4th quarter. The Rockets were up 1 with 4:13 left in the game when Brandon Ingram fouls James Harden. Ingram went right to up to Harden after the whistle and gave him a healthy two handed shove. Harden looked confused by the push, Ingram gets a technical then gets Read More

Takeaways from Opening Week and a Few Picks for Friday, October 19th

Here are 4 takeaways from the opening games of the season and 4 picks for tonight on DraftKings. Mo Bamba Looked great in his Magic Debut Bamba looked very good in his NBA debut, he finished with 13 points, 7 assists and 2 blocks in 25 minutes. Vucevic had pretty much the same stat line, 14 and 8 in 28 minutes. The Magic were a -17 with Vucevic in the game and +13 when Bamba was playing. It only took 1 game to see he is clearly the future at Center for the Magic, but right now you can still Read More

2018-19 NBA Predictions

NBA season starts tonight, here are my picks for MVP, Coach of the Year, Rookie of the Year, Defensive Player of the Year, 6th man, Most Improved Player and Finals Pick. MVP - Giannis Giannis is set to have an MVP season. He is the best player in the East, Instagram posts show he has been living in the gym and he finally has a coach that will be able to do something with this Milwaukee team. The Freak averaged 27P/10R/5A last season, I can see him averaging 30+ and winning the scoring title 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 I was Read More

Big Picks, Small Slate. Jan 1, 2018 Draftkings Lineup Help.

Happy New Year everyone. The start of the 2017-18 NBA season was for me, hoping to continue the trend as the calendar rolls over into 2018. Here are some must plays for Monday night. PG. Elfrid Payton, $7,100 Elfrid Payton has been playing very well the past couple of games. His FPPG is 29.8, however, in the last 5 games that average is up to 40.6. He is matched up tonight against Spencer Dinwiddie. Dinwiddie has done a great job filling in for the injured D'Angelo Russell, but is a Read More

5 Players You Need in Your DraftKings Lineup

Tonight is a Ten game schedule. The more choices, the more doubt creeps in with your pick. Here are 5 picks to help get your lineup jumpstarted. PG Jamal Murray, $5,100 Nice value pick here. Jamal Murray scored a season high 31 points the last time they played the Pelicans. Not a whole lot of defense is going to be played in this game, the Nuggets won 146-114 last game, I don't think both teams will tighten up on Defense over night. SG. Dwyane Wade, $5,800 I am using the PG slot Read More
