FanDuel user here. Every single night, roughly 20-40% of the NBA 50/50 contest lineups are completely identical. Cash lines are higher than GPP cash lines like 25%-30% of the time, and lately, you have to get 320+ to have a chance at cashing most nights. You essentially need to have every high owned player in order to have a chance at cashing, since almost all the highly-owned guys are priced super soft and go for 5x, 6x, even 7x+.
In short, FanDuel NBA cash games are entirely broken, and while I’ve actually managed to be quite profitable on the season, it has completely sucked any enjoyment from DFS for me and made it just a super anxious experience overall.
I’m wondering if DraftKings has the same problem? Are 50/50 contests there such that a significant portion of the pool has the exact same lineup, or close to it? Are the cash lines there often exceeding the GPP lines?
