    Wow miserable night. G S scores 81. Lakers struggle to crack 90.. needed that OT there. And GASOL with the triple double, where’d that come from.

    idk why but a lot of times when a player is questionable or ruled out…then it changes to probable and end up playing…a lot of times they crush just for trolls sake

  • 866

    Gasol only 7-8% in the late slates.. but Aldridge sank me. Went Randolph instead left the $ on the table and got burned there. Felt phantom DNP possibly and or reduced mins. Took a chance.

    Why did Nurkic only play 17 minutes..

    Only playable PDX players are Dame and (now) Shabazz
    Stotts is the worst…. wouldn’t have Aminu if I hadn’t to do a double switch on the fly as Ingram was ruled out
    Surely if I had more than a few seconds would have come up with something better… maybe
    So pissed right now
    What a waste of a great lineup all because Stotts is an idiot and Walton gives minutes to f’ing bogut

  • BBWC_10

    WOW how do you take Buddy Hield off the floor for the last 8 minutes? They guy is your leading scorer tonight, He is your best chance to win….. I swear some of these coaches are on the take.

    agree i feel for the hield owners. damn.
    ended up 93rd in the 8$ late night for $25 but woulda been 7th for $100 with hield. damn.

    good luck all tomorrow for a fun nfl slate, and remember bet the under on the first 2 or 3 nba games xmas day (the big cat theory with tired players, 75% correct last few years).

  • bcarlsrud

    Had DCUZ in every cash LU and went 4-4. All $25

  • tmarohl

    Actually went against the grain and played three cash games tonight with lineups I set yesterday. I never play cash games. Beat CP_21 and Chipotle.

  • chronoxiong

    Bledsoe=dud
    Brogdon=dud and lost usage to Sean Killpatrick
    Durant=massive dud. Probably the most killer dud of the night.
    Josh Richardson dud.
    Kuzma=dud
    Taj Gibson and low owned.

    AWful night. I lost all my games as my lineup scored 272.80. Couldn’t overcome the duds I just mentioned. I should have known Bledsoe was not the play but as I mentioned all week, if the chalk guy goes off and I don’t have him, it would be tough to make up his points. However, my original pivot from him was Jeff Teague and he sucked. Durant, why must you bust that bad? Those who went Butler and PG-13 over Durant finally came out on top tonight. PG-13 had 6 steals and 2 blks. That’s 24 fdp alone. Now I have to hope I win NFL tomorrow so I will have decent money to play the Christmas day slate.

    New here.

    Had 100 % elf.

    Felt like I had to mention it since he’s a thing here.

    I went with
    Westbrook
    Napier
    McCollum
    Middleton
    Richardson
    Warren
    Kuzma
    Marvin Williams
    Randle
    311.9

    It’s pretty obvious how you cashed tonight. You faded Durant and used that salary onto the other positions. Had Durant not busted, it would have been a different story. Westy’s raw points were needed at the PG position. Should have known Bledsoe was going to bust though. I wasn’t on him at all during the day.

    And if you thought that was fun, wait until you see the prices for Christmas!

    I wouldn’t say he busted. He put up 30.4 points on 7200 salary. That is not a bust. A bust is MKG puting up 14.1 on 5K

    Well, Bledsoe barely got 4x. But we wanted more than which is around 35-45 fdp. That’s all I’m saying. I have to let it go anyways since my original pivot Jeff Teague (6.7k) sucked so yeah. Lol. Hard to figure out the TWolves offense at times. Even Taj Gibson didn’t get much usage.

    Right on dude. I cant quit the Elf train of death….. only took Vucevic breaking his damn hand lol.

    Had my best night all year. Won the $5 late swap GPP and placed well in all the main gpps + won a main event ticket for tomorrow.
    That damn Giannis news screwed me up or it would have been better, couldn’t help but edit my single entry lineup and pivoted RHJ and Turner to Middleton and Aminu on majority entries. So finished 321 & 334, If Aminu actually played the 4th it would have been close SMH!
    Damn you late news, and I.L.Y Tyreke

  • tmarohl

    Guys are only supposed to put up 5 X about 50% of the time. That is how the pricing is figured.

    Congrats brother.

    Elf carried all my lus.

    I play cash games mainly. DK.

    I was already on Middleton so I just swapped cj for bledsoe and upgraded elsewhere with the savings.

    Christmas looks kind of easy to me, which means I will lose, and probably badly.

    fade the early games, stack the late games. dudes are up late/early with santa stuff.

    Another forum fade another win. Been ghost following this forum for years nothing but loser picks being pumped out in here

    I only play Fanduel NBA GPP. I usually enter 5-20 lineups in the $4-$4.44 (Clutch etc). I’ve hit GPP money 4 days in a row on FD! 5 times in last 6 tries. Beasts & Bums w/ Value Picks.

    12/17 – $80
    12/18 – $0
    12/19 – didn’t play
    12/20 – $36
    12/21 – $64
    12/22 – $128
    12/23 – $80

    Thanks to this forum it’s been very helpful catching up in news during busy work days.

    1. Always set a lineup the night before.
    2. Always check injuries.
    3. Always tinker with your lineup based on news. Especially for value plays.
    4. Don’t play too many chalk plays.
    5. Always play at least 2 Beasts (9500+ with a high floor..like 40+). Even if they miss a value pick may pick up the slack but 40 points is 40 points.
    6. Never bet your whole bankroll. Live to grind out another day.
    7. Make a “never play” list and stick to it. I noticed some players are just hard to read and are best avoided. This list is different for different people (some people can read certain players or live in a market where they see they player more or have intel on why a player is a good play). Just stick to a strategy.
    8. Don’t play if you don’t have time to research.
    9. Don’t take “hot metrics” as fact. Like “His usage goes down when XYZ is out.”
    10. The H2H finder on basketball reference is a good tool. Just make sure the sample size is big enough and the team setups aren’t significantly different than in previous matchups. Works better with big men IMO.

    Thanks to all who contributed here! Especially KAT!

    Happy Holidays!
