Daily Fantasy NBA Basketball Picks for FanDuel and DraftKings -12/17/17 Happy Sunday, dearest of friends!

Point guard Spencer Dinwiddie FD - $7500 DK - $6800Opponent - INDProj Pts FD - 34.93 DK - 34.86 We're looking at multiple short slates where it's tough to field a lineup of actual starters, so this might be the rare day where it's correct to the play the all day slate. I am going to write this article as though that's what you planned, because let's be honest, that's a lot easier for me. What does this have to do with Spencer Dinwiddie, you ask? Absolutely nothing. Moving on. Dinwiddie has actually been a pretty consistent offensive producer on a points per minute basis this season, highlighted best by his 2 recent 42+ fantasy point performances in the last week. If it weren't for the unhappy circumstance of playing on the Nets, he'd probably be getting some notice as a surprising breakout player this season. The risk with any Net on any given night is of course blowout risk, but Vegas sees them as just 3 point dogs going up against Indiana here. On a day where there is just no value anywhere at the position, Dinwiddie looks like a solid high floor and high ceiling option. Darren Collison FD - $5800 DK - $5800Opponent - BKNProj Pts FD - 26.34 DK - 26.7 I'll break down the other possibilities and their issues in a second, but Collison shows up on this list in a sort of "in the land of the blind, the one-eyed man is king" fashion. He's an underwhelming performer on these prices, and seems to be something of a minutes risk in tough match-ups. So why include him here? This ain't one of those tough match-ups. The Nets are playing the league's 2nd fastest PACE with a bottom 10 defensive efficiency, and that should be enough for Collison to at least score in the high 20s fantasy points. Our system doesn't particularly love him here, which is really saying something about how bad he is generally, but let's look at the other...

Daily Fantasy NBA Basketball Picks for FanDuel and DraftKings – 11/4/17

We've got you completely covered. Point guard Stephen Curry FD - $9200 DK - $9500Opponent - DENProj Pts FD - 49.98 DK - 51.41 We've got a short set of only five games on the docket for today, one of which sees the Warriors traveling into Denver to face the Nuggets. This game opened with a monster 229.5 projection and sees the Warriors as just an eight point favorite. This gave us a chance to do something that doesn't happen too often here, and spotlight the Splash Brothers. We'll get to Klay in a moment, but we lead off at the point tonight with Steph Curry. Steph tends to go overlooked in cash game plays with safer plays in the form of Russell Westbrook and John Wall floating around out there, but tonight the system loves Curry among the top point per dollar plays of the day at any position. Through nine games this season Steph's averaging just under 33 minutes per game, seeing upwards of 37 while averaging 27 points per game and picking up some steady peripherals. He'll spend most of his night paired up with Jamal Murray who is a fine defender, but not really a threat to Curry. Curry is an absolutely stellar play on FanDuel where his salary sits at a season Low, conversely, the DraftKings salary is a season high and while he is still a fine cash play, the upside may be limited unless he finds a way to keep himself out on the court for 40+ minutes. Jrue Holiday FD - $7200 DK - $6700Opponent - CHIProj Pts FD - 34.44 DK - 35.07 Jrue Holiday saw his salary across the industry hit a high note on Monday following what was arguably his best output of the season last Saturday against the Cavaliers. Two lackluster performances later the price has dropped back down to a more desirable level. While still a bit higher than I might like to pay for a player whose usage and production can be streaky at times, I'm sold on Jrue for one specific reason tonight. The Bulls. Chicago is absolutely terrible defending against the point allowing the most fantasy points at the position at this point in the season. Holiday is a multi-tool player,...

Daily Fantasy NBA Picks for FanDuel and DraftKings – 10/23/17

We've got you completely covered. Point guard John Wall FD - $10300 DK - $10100 Opponent - DEN Proj Pts FD - 53.8 DK - 55.16 Welcome back from Sunday Football! Whether you got yourself involved in the 3-game slate or not, yesterday was about football. We jump back into things tonight with an 8-game slate, featuring plenty of polarizing match-ups. We start off with the Wizards and Nuggets. In a game with an incredibly high 223 over/under, Vegas expects plenty of scoring and non-stop action throughout. As we all know, John Wall thrives in the open court. He derives upside from the fastbreak and turning outlets into assists/baskets instead of halfcourt sets. He should be able to do whatever he wants against the Nuggets, who are starting Jamal Murray at PG for the time being. He's a great scorer, but Murray isn't in the game to play defense. He pushes the ball and has allowed over 1.4 FP/min. They then have Jokic in the paint, who doesn't do much protecting. If you're able to find some of his defensive film on Twitter, you'll be surprised how slow a guy can be from the elbow to rim. Wall is going to be very popular and rightfully so. He's the best run and gun PG in basketball and he faces off with one of the fastest playing teams in the league. There's no reason to fade, outside of liking 2 other guys more. In cash games, I'll be locking him into 100%. Goran Dragic FD - $7100 DK - $7000 Opponent - ATL Proj Pts FD - 37.12 DK - 37.98 It looks like Hassan Whiteside is going to miss a 2nd straight game with a bone bruise. Though reported doubtful, he is officially questionable, so keep an eye out as the day moves along for an update. Dragic is an even better play if Whiteside is out, but it doesn't make a huge difference. When facing the Hawks, you first look towards PG. Dennis Schroder is one of the worst defenders in the league and Dragic is the perfect guy to take advantage. He's crafty enough to drive and execute in the paint and good enough to stretch the floor and hit the 3 if Schroder cheats back. Dragic...

Daily Fantasy MLB Baseball Picks for FanDuel and DraftKings Playoffs – 10/14/17

Daily Fantasy MLB Baseball Picks for FanDuel and DraftKings Playoffs - 10/11/17 Now’s your chance to get DFSR PRO, which will give you access to our MLB optimizer, our NFL Optimizer, and our new player lab! Get started for free by clicking the button below. START YOUR FREE TRIAL NOW! First time with NFL or MLB? Be sure to read our free MLB and NFL Ebooks on building lineups, general strategy and more. We've got you completely covered.   New York Yankees @ Houston Astros Pitchers Justin Verlander FD 10300 DK 9300 Opponent - NYY (Severino) Park - @HOU FD - 38.69 DK - 20.46 The first game up on the schedule for today is game two of the ALCS between the Yankees and Astros at Minute Maid Park in Houston. The Astros are favored to win the series, and lead game one 2-0 in the fifth inning as I write this. They'll look to capitalize on the home field advantage and head to New York with a 2-0 series lead by sending mid season acquisition Justin Verlander to the hill tonight against the Bronx bombers. Houston picked Verlander up from Detroit with a month to go in the season and he immediately paid dividends. Verlander closed out the season with the 'Stros going 5-0 allowing 4 earned runs in five Houston starts while striking out 43 in 34 innings pitched. Verlander started game one of the division series against Boston allowing two runs in six innings of work but only managed three K's and followed that up with 2.2 innings of relief work in game four on Monday. Verlander should be well rested and ready to go for tonight's matchup in the friendliest park for pitchers in the game. The price for Verlander on FanDuel gives me a moment of pause as he's the most expensive arm going, I find the sub 10K price tag on DraftKings much more appealing. Luis Severino FD 9500 DK 8700 Opponent - HOU (Verlander) Park - @HOU FD - 33.82 DK - 17.76 The Yankees will counter Verlander with 23 year old Luis Severino. Severino was stellar in his first full big league season, picking up 14 wins in 31 starts, while striking out 10.71 batters per 9 innings pitched, and finishing the season with a combined .265 wOBA allowed. Perhaps it was just a bad case of jitters that got to Severino in his first postseason start when the Twins took him for three runs on four hits and a walk in just .1 IP of the AL Wildcard contest. The Yanks were able to rally behind the pen and pull off the win and Severino received a chance at redemption...
