1.) Sixers knocking down their free throws. Nicole Sweet-USA TODAY Sports Philly stole one in Toronto in Game 2, 94-89, the first time the team won up north since 2012.

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports Even with the loss, it was the fifth consecutive time that the Raptors held their opponents under 100 points and 42% shooting.

Who To Pick And Avoid For NBA DFS Saturday– March 2, 2019

Who To Pick And Avoid For NBA DFS Saturday-- March 2, 2019
Who To Pick
Russell Westbrook, PG, OKC Thunder

Russ is still doing Westbrook things and now that PG is sidelined ahead of Saturday's matchup with San Antonio, look for Westbrook's usage to skyrocket. He had a 24-assist game this season versus the Spurs so he has proven he can bring his A-game against this team.
DeMarcus Cousins, C, Golden State Warriors

Cousins is a favorite of mine because he can pile up fantasy points in a Read More

3 Building Blocks For NBA DFS Friday– March 2, 2018

Russell Westbrook, PG, Oklahoma City Thunder ($11,900)
I usually don't suggest putting the guy with the highest salary but against the Phoenix Suns, I beg to differ. The Suns have been the worst in the league in giving up points (113 points) and ranks 24th when it comes to opponent field goal percentage. I expect Brodie to come out guns ablaze and even come up with a triple-double.
Josh Jackson, SF, Phoenix Suns ($5,700)
Jackson has recently been on fire recently and produced 29 points on 9-of-16 Read More

2018 All-Star Team Projections

NBA All-Star Voting 2018 presented by Verizon will tip off with an early voting period exclusively on the NBA App and NBA.com beginning Thursday, Dec. 21 at 1 p.m. ET. In honor of the impending vote, lets take a look at who should make it this year. Keep in mind that this year, there will be no East V West, it has moved to a draft format. It’s clear that the All-Star game is dying since none of the players care, so the draft will at least add some life into it. Useless or not, I’ve always liked Read More

NBA DFS Best Value Picks– April 9, 2017

NBA DFS Best Value Picks-- April 9, 2017
The Studs

Russell Westbrook, PG, OKC Thunder ($13,900)
I usually stay out of Russell Westbrook's way because of his salary. At this point, though, I have to make an exception. No one in Denver can stay in front of Westbrook and with him hungrier than ever to get that historic 42nd double-double, I just think he will come up with a 70-80 FP game.
Kevin Love, PF, Cleveland Cavaliers ($7,800)
Cleveland is stumbling to the playoffs and now that Kyrie Irving Read More

5 DFS Performances That Came Out Of Nowhere– March 29, 2017

1. Cory Joseph, PG, Raptors (42 .75 points)
Joseph should be up there as far as stats are concerned with Kyle Lowry out for an extended period of time. That's not the case, however, at least not until tonight. Somebody should have seen it coming but not me: CoJo had a full stat line against the Hornets defense, scoring 18 points, seven rebounds, five assists, two steals, two blocks, and two treys. He did have 13 assists the other time around against the Magic but I thought it was a fluke. I should Read More
