With 13 NBA games tonight, there are several excellent players to choose from in every salary range at DraftKings but strategy begins at the highest level.
There’s just one NBA game tonight, but our friends at DraftKings have created Turbo contests that include the three earliest starts on Friday. It’s the first two-day event of the season; those become common — and are great fun — during the later rounds of the playoffs.
We have a nearly-full slate of 14 NBA games on Friday. Making sense of them and trying to sort out the best opportunities is a first step to picking the right players in DFS contests.
There were “too many” superstars to choose from in daily action on Friday — though Klay Thompson outperformed all eight of those $10000+ salary guys with the greatest quarter in NBA history. Tonight, the pendulum swings the other way.
The Detroit Pistons have been on an absolute tear since trading Josh Smith, and Andre Drummond has played an instrumental part during their 10-2 run on both ends of the floor. The center was at it again on Friday against the Indiana Pacers, collecting 16 points and 16 rebounds and coming up with the game-winning tip on a missed layup attempt by Brandon Jennings with the game tied at 96 apiece. That was after he came up with a defensive stop
We all knew that Josh Smith had become a detrimental player on the court – at least for the Detroit Pistons – with his inability to space the floor and the horrible shot selections that crippled the offense. What we didn’t know was just how capable the Pistons would be with him out of the lineup.
After a busy Monday night, there are only two games in the Association this evening. In daily fantasy, the extreme of ‘too many’ PG (congrats if you backed Damian Lillard) swings all the way to ‘not enough’. Most teams will have at least one guy named Brandon.
There are six NBA games on Sunday, but the 1:00 Eastern start (Dallas at Cleveland) is included at DraftKings only in a few All-Day offerings for early risers. Late contests are available at 8:00, covering just two games; the majority of big-money guaranteed pools close at 6:00, with ten teams getting our attention.
