My NBA DFS team suffered a bit of bad luck last night, scoring only 251 DraftKings’ points.  Taj Gibson left his game with an injury and did not return and Andre Iguodala didn’t help matters with just 8.50 DK points but sometimes that’s the way it goes. Today, there are

It was a glorious night for my NBA DFS team yesterday as I finished with 306.25 DraftKings’ points. That was enough to win some cash in every contest I entered last night. Pairing up the Warriors’ small forwards against the Rockets worked out well, as Iguodala and Barnes combined for

Yesterday, during the NBA ‘DFS Tinder’ segment of the “Show Me the Money” Podcast, my colleague Jack Biernacki described Russell Westbrook as a “walking triple double”. The statement was spot on, as Westbrook finished with 24 points, 19 rebounds, and 14 assists against the Magic on his way to 76.25

It was another tough night in the NBA DFS world as my team struggled on its way to 229.25 DraftKings’ points.  The team was good enough to win many H2H contests, but it was a strange night as plenty of my competition failed to reach even 200 DraftKings’ points.  It

My NBA DFS team last night was essentially a bet that the Raptors, winners of eleven straight, would demolish the Denver Nuggets on the road. Unfortunately, it was the Raptors who got demolished and their starting five was pulled early in the third quarter, resulting in a 227.75 DraftKings’ point

It was an interesting weekend in the NBA as the Suns fired head coach Jeff Hornacek, who hardly can be blamed for a season filled with injuries and blowout losses. From an NBA DFS perspective, I hope this doesn’t affect Devin Booker too much because he has been a star

Unfortunately, 242 DraftKings’ points got me nowhere last night except to Twitter, as I was scouring the timeline expecting news that Gary Harris had been injured or ejected. To my surprise, he just had a terrible game, which was common last night as four of the eight players I selected
