    Wanamaker chalk night!! What could go wrong?

  • monarch

    Marcus Smart being out only really solidifies Jimmy Butler being a strong play and makes the rest of the Heat worse and does nothing to make me like Celtic options.

    Vs Miami? No thanks.

    After last nights Toronto match, how much run does Olynik get vs the team that let him go? Can’t quite figure out the big man rotation in Bos.

    I wouldn’t chase that narrative, he doesn’t have a great history against Boston

    You are spot on. Also we don’t have to look at Smart’s Rick James style hairdo that doesn’t look as sharp as Rick back in the day.

    The whole team is solid defensively. If I was going to play anybody it would probably be Mitchell, but I don’t think i’m going there today. If the masses are going to this game, i’ll lay off. Easy fade

    Might want to rethink fading Mitchell. If you think he’ll underperform, go underweight, yet I wouldn’t fade this spot and price. #notabouttheoutcome 😉😁😎🍀🔥🍻🍀

    I’m only playing a single entry and i’d fade the highest owned player on the slate. I’d rather take a shot on say Devonte Graham against the Warriors, or LaVine against Memphis, or Dinwiddie against Atlanta

    Yeah, cheaper than usual, no Conley, and most likely a competitive game.

    Hey this isnt regarding tonights slate, but I saw 22 people had the same lineup in the 229 $27 SE. Are those sold lineups and which games should I enter to avoid those hah

    I understand the simple answer is just to beat them to get a leg up ha

    Yes and no. I’m sure a few people shared lineups however there was a ton of chalk last night. A lot of lineups were the same or very close, especially in cash games and small GPP.

    Those guys are good plays too, yet they cost 1k more than Mitchell. You could actually play all 4 if you wanted.

    Hey if you don’t like Mitchell, you don’t like him, don’t play him 🤷‍♂️

    It was a super chalk night, just find a way to differentiate a couple players you don’t agree with to have a chance

    On Yahoo, Graham is cheaper, but they are all within a few dollars of eachother.

    Wow! Our minds are in tune today…

  • Herf

    I don’t like Blake Griffin today against Milwaukee, I’ll actually be fairly shocked if he even plays 30ish minutes. And I’m waiting to hear that Whiteside is being sidelined for rest tonight on a b2b so I can throw Labissiere in for a little value.

    Also, I’m fading Lavine today…. which means he’ll have 50.

    Is Whiteside sitting back to backs?

    Blake is sitting b2b unless that gets lifted today.

    A Rockets source is optimistic that the NBA office will take action regarding James Harden dunk that didn’t count, either awarding the win to Houston or ordering that the final 7:50 be replayed because the Rockets outscored the Spurs in regulation. The Rockets believe a protest might not be necessary but will prepare to file one if the league office does not take action.

    If Russell doesn’t have a minutes limit, he’s really interesting tonight.

    Was hanging right around the cash line a couple nights ago, had Lavine chugging along…. and in the last twenty minutes of the game he did agonizingly little. Clunker

  • JSteele

    To be fair, I do see a path to success for Mitchell but that caps out at around 45, which is good but not slate breaking. Conley isn’t some high usage guy, he has a low 20 usage rate. Let’s say half of that goes to the starting point guard, there isn’t much left for the rest of the starters. The next part where Mitchell can get a boost is by handling the ball some more which he should do, but the Lakers are so good defensively that it may negate any extra assists that Mitchell would get. I see him having a similar game to Jamal Murray yesterday.

    Funny thing is, that clearly went through the net. And I had 2 Harden teams miss the cash line by 1.5 points or less. 10% owned.

    Like to get paid on that 😁. But if that counts maybe the game doesn’t go into OT and Harden has a bunch less points. 🤷‍♂️

    I wonder if they will contest the back court call before halftime where they got two points.

    Gobert has an even lower usage rate than Conley, and Mitchell had a great game against the Pelicans when Gobert was out a few weeks ago.

    Gobert doesn’t get points by playmaking, he gets putbacks, rebounds and bleals. Mitchell had a great game because they were playing the New Orleans Pelicans. Not because Gobert was out and he got a big boost…
