    Is there actually a way to see the future without selling your soul to the devil? Anyone got some advice on that? Never hurts to ask. I know it has been done before, so maybe someone can give me a little insight into that.

    Don’t understand the people that say they don’t want to play a 3 game slate. I understand the overlap makes it harder but 3 game slates might happen 10 times a year or more. No way I could pass on that many days!

    The most money I ever won was on a two game slate (the very last one from last season). It sucks to get first in a game where $20k goes to first but only get $250 b/c of ties, but it’s also nice to get $250 off of $3.

    What in the heck is taking so long to release the Wednesday tournaments?

    They want people to put their money in tomorrow’s tournaments. If they release Wednesday’s now people will start entering them.

    Fading Lebron. His mind will be thinking of the Cleveland Indians going for a easy..EASY sweep.

    Is it really ever easy to sweep a team that won 103 games during the regular season?

    Cubs in 6.

    Off topic, but it will be a great series. Two franchises that deserve a title, even I’ll tune in to watch.

    I do apologize. I’m not accepting new applicants at this time. Check back after the election is over.

    I wonder how many different (good) lineup combinations there are for a three game slate. I am playing 8 (b/c of all the football money I won yesterday, otherwise I probably would have just played one). I see some people here played over 100. I couldn’t even think of that many.

    Most of my lineups have the following…(*EDIT: These are Fanduel)

    Irving (7)
    Clay Thompson (7)
    Rodney Hood (7)
    Gobert (5)
    Love (5)
    K. Leonard (5)

    (hopefully none of them get hurt)

    Curry (3)
    Rose (3) I know he might suck, but his price fit my lineups. (he was one of the last additions in each one)
    James (4)
    Durant (3)
    Exum (2) b/c I think he’ll have some pretty low ownership.

    no exposure to POR? what’s your reasoning?

  • nateW

    Anyone thinking about Tony Parker? I’m just wondering how the addition of Gasol will affect how Parker and other players play. Gasol is guy that has to be defended, so that could somehow open things up for Parker.

    I got some Trailblazers. I didn’t list everyone. ;)

    Plumlee, Lillard, ALF.

    As an Illinois fan I’d love play Leonard, but he just doesn’t get enough minutes. I don’t get to watch many Trailblazer games. He seems to be a very good shooter (much more range than when he was at Illinois), does his defense suck? I’d have him at PF or something (assuming he plays D).

    I tend to stay away from faster paced teams when they play slower paced teams (I’ll play slower paced teams when they play faster though). Not always, but most of the time.

  • BBWC_10

    I think he is referring to the overlay, which is when the contest doesn’t fill. Fan duel has to put in the money to cover the guaranteed money, If you put in the max entries (50) along with 6 friends, you can increase your odds and monopolize most of the prize pool. I’m going with 2 lineups on my own,LOL

    Leonard has seen a lot of progress throughout his years here in POR. He just recovered him an injury from last year and looked eh during the preseason. He can definitely shoot the ball, but I think because he can shoot the ball, he likes to force the shot. His post game definitely needs work. Leonard can’t compete with the big guys in the league down low. As you mention, his minutes concern me also. If he somehow proves himself to be a better all around player, I can see his minutes increasing and seeing a bigger role in Stott’s rotation.

    I don’t really get why people think the cavs will blow out ny the first game of the year? NY is vastly improved on paper also so this is just mind boggling to me

    Well Vegas has them as 9.5 point favourites. I tend to side with Vegas. Those casinos on the strip aren’t free. :/

    NY hasnt proven anything. Theyre an unproven team with talent, plus they havent even played a full game as a team yet. Plus the cavs are the cavs and won the NBA championship and they have lebron the best player in the world

  • quake211

    predictions for how many entries end up in the DK tipoff special? I’m thinking we see lots of overlay and end up about 220k out of 294k

  • dipjce

    Yea but they prob make more money with the cavs not covering. It opened at 7.5. Last year the knicks were 5 point underdogs to bucks first game and won by 23.

    False. Cubs deserve no title. EVER

    I think it nearly fills. I don’t recall overlay in NBA ever

  • TeamTwerk

    Wow. Golden State 9.5 point favorites now against San Antonio, a team that figures to be the 2nd or 3rd best team in basketball. GS might have the best team relative to the rest of the league of all time.

    That’s what it’s looking like. I’m surprised. Even the HUGE ~$2 GPPs during the playoffs with 2-4game slates filled no problem. Guess $4 is a bit higher price point.

    Personally, I’ve already been toying with Yahoo which has had the Wednesday slate up for awhile now :).

  • TeamTwerk

    Is having Gobert and Lyles (if Favors is out) in the same GPP lineup a mistake? Only so many rebounds to go around problem?

  • dipjce

    not sure if he is even the back-up. It’s possible he does enough

    Are you looking to Diaw? Either way having a PF from Utah that looks like he will get the most minutes paired with Gobert
