    lol I emailed them about that last night because I have a bunch also and this is what they said.

    “Thank you for your email. We will be running another Mega Four Point Play at some point in the near future, so you will be able to redeem your tickets. Unfortunately, I do not have an exact date for to provide for when the next contest will be posted, so please stay tuned to the contest lobby.”

    MCW with Grant backing him up is the Bulls plan for tonight.

    It has a place in research but can definitely be misleading for several reasons.

    1) It is dependent on who you have played (even this deep into the season) if you’ve had Westbrook on your schedule a couple times, Wall etc… then chances are your DvP will be higher than a team that hasn’t had to face an elite guy (or an elite guy didn’t play the night they played them).

    2) Takes into account the entire season of data when players change, for example New Orleans is 28th against PG DvP but much of their season was with Frazier as starting PG (awful defender) while now Jrue is starting and is at worst an average defender (3rd best DRPM of pg’s tonight if you like that stat).

    3) Doesn’t fully take into account positions, for example Denver starts Wilson Chandler and Danilo who are both considered 3’s, so if they both have good games a teams DvP v. SF’s will go up big time for SF and not at all for PF’s despite one of them having good game against PF.

    Things like that, but I still look at it in certain spots just to get a feel

    Thank you for the explanations provided by you in others. I still use it but these points are something I take into account as well. I wouldn’t throw it out completely but something I would use to target and dig into more on why a team is bad and if it’s truly a spot to exploit.

    Why is Dante Cunningham 1k more than last game on DK? He was 3 something and now a ridiculous 4.6k, can anyone answer this for me?

    Brogdon and Mack leaves tons of money but does it make a ton of money?

    No upside in Mack. none at all.

    what kind of score will it take to win the dk milly

  • stubirds

    @DYELB said...

    It’s amazing to me that people still think DvP is meaningful

    Agreed 100%, It means absolutely nothing. Any player will go off on any given night against a good defense. I don’t even look at DvP

  • stubirds

    Anyone thinking about Dante Cunningham at 3,800 on FD for a cheap 20pts?

    @debeatup said...

    People are putting too much emphasis on Beverley. James is 100% the ball handler/facilitator now – Pat only runs the offense in the 12-15 mins James is resting up. The entire offense is predicated on Harden’s playmaking.

    When they are on the court together it’s eerily similar to Westbrook/Roberson except Pat can actually knock down the triple

    I could be wrong, yet I disagree with this take, as I think Beverly is the key to the entire game.

    NO talk about Mudiay for his price going against one of the worst D’s against pgs give me all i can handle

    I agree…..I feel Hayward, Hood, and Favors will get the extra Usage.

    Based on my calculations, barring any OT games, probably in the range of 357-360. So that’s 7.14x-7.2x or 44.625-45 per player.

  • flippitydodah

    Having your glue guys crush value is the key. It’s always crazy seeing a winning lineup with Bogdonavic 30fps, or Speights w/ 40fps winning the top prize… Speights has always been one of my favorite late game kickers, even when he was on GS…

    Speaking of which, DEN/GS for the last game, will be hard not to have some exposure to this game even though the spread is 15.

    2 of the last 3 matches were close. 112-110, and 108-11 OT last season.
    With Durant 101-125

    If O’Quinn is out then I want all the Vucevic.

  • leeg9685

    If Porzingis is out……..IBAKA and Vucevic will be great plays. If no Fournier,…..add Gordon to the mix….Melo cant guard him

    I was on him the other night against 76’ers. Being on the road I am not as excited for him as his splits favor home games.

    i wouldn’t pin my hope on anyone from Utah. I expect this game to be a Utah blowout. Other than Lin, Nets players are selfish and they plays with ZERO heart.

    I just lock in James Harden on fanduel without thinking

  • GGee87

    I really wish Sweet Lou would have come through for me last night. I figured going up against a former team he would likely show out some. Nick Young seems to have taken over that role for the moment. Onto todays slate though. Im really liking Klay to have a huge game tonight against the atrocious perimeter D of the Nugs. Several different angles you could take to the top tonight… Where are we paying up and where are we paying down in tournaments tonight? Im paying down at C for the most part and PF. Just cant figure out where to spend up at. Nobody is standing way out.

  • FargoBison

    I could see Mudiay in a game stack maybe but if I’m looking for value at pg I think there are better options. His road stats like was said are not great, plus he can start piling up turnovers.
