    I’ve never played the Brow. Not once. Usually works out too.

    I usually play late slates or short slates and he’s always 80%+ owned. I knew Cousins was the better play if I was spending up anywhere tonight. Just seemed like so many guys were over priced and liked some of the lower tier guys. Problem is if Brow is gonna be so high owned so are those lower tier guys. Better off spending money on mid tier guys elsewhere, 4x from them is better that 0.5x or less from Brow.

    So Porzingsuck, Bazemore, Hood, Favors, Hardaway, etc would fit the bill?

    I put way too much faith into Vegas when it comes to my NBA research.

    I don’t look at Vegas for any other sport but NBA. Might have to drop it for this sport soon if this keeps up.

    I assume you’re talking about totals. I get that.

    If you’re not paying attention to line movement in all sports you’re missing out.

    Aaron Afflalo the last two years should be on the list as well. Stanley Johnson is also a good candidate.

  • mccoolio

    Man, just watched another guy fall out if first in the $6 snack on DK due to stat corrections. He didn’t even lose anything, just got passed. Brutal to go from 30K to 15K

    nba.com isn’t always correct, those come from data.nba.com the best one to look at for the official one is:

    So, if this is correct then Andrew Wiggins was even WORSE than originally thought lol jesus christ

  • SkateFiend

    You can’t go wrong with punts right now, everyone and their moms are productive. The only punts who bit me were Ingles and Booker. And Booker had foul trouble. At Yahoo the Celtics and Nets players are bargain price cheap.

    Lineups that hit a little over 300 are good for 5 bucks.

  • chronoxiong

    Fade Butler and Unibrow: Check

    Still lose because I played Porzingis, Wiggins and Teague. All three killed my hopes and dreams for the night. Also, I thought Ingles’ stomach bug wasn’t going to affect him too but it obviously did. You just can never know if an injured player will still come out and beast. Isn’t that right Aaron Gordon? I thought coming back from a sprained ankle means you are not at 100%. I donated money for the night. Rough few days so far.

    http://www.fantasylabs.com/nba/vegas/

    i don’t put a ton of stock into it but sometimes theres interesting movement. Like 83% of the money on the cavs to cover tomorrow but the line moved toward the nets by .5 which isn’t a massive move but it’s still a move. Maybe Lebron sits or is limited on the b2b? maybe the sharps think the Cavs are still trying to gel etc etc.

    Maybe i’m wrong but that’s how I was kinda told to look at it.

    For simplicity nothing beats the FantasyLabs Vegas odds pages. Easy to read and digest. Not sure on its source (one book or a conglomerate) but for simplicity it’s the best.

    For NFL the Sharp Football Analysis odds page is great.

    Well Brow doesn’t usually get .5x or less

  • cheezpizza

    Can’t believe I switched out Gordon for Wiggins. The difference in 12 bucks and 500.

  • Alphamed

    Night started so well…… Then AD injury saga part 934 happened…… So thankful i bet small tonight.

    @tonytone1908 said...

    See this is the crap that irritates me. All the sport writers and especially the team beat reporters that are out there and no one ever mentions stuff like this. Of course, a situation like that maybe no one even noticed but I’ve seen numerous times where guys didn’t come to morning shootaround and we don’t hear a word til after 10:30 tipoff that they’ve been throwing up all day. A guys been sick for 3 days and we don’t hear a word til after lock. Some teams scratch guys the day before a game while others wait til 2 mins after lock to tell you their star has pneumonia or something. I mean, I get not wanting the give the other team an edge such as in hockey where everything is either a lower or upper body injury yet they’ll report Joakim Noah wasn’t at shootaround but make no mention of Derrick Rose even being in the state.

    These beat writers suck and aggravate me more than the recent stat issues.

    You said it yourself. They don’t want to give the other team an edge. So why is everybody crying about this? It’s part of the game. And I had AD in all my few lineups.
