    On the 2-game I had Jaylen, Horford and Korver going. Blow-out limited all of them and Korver so:so, but still in the game for tomorrow. Really miss the full slates.

    Wow, only 1 winner in the Big $10 GPP on DK too.

    “Msbbishop1028” put up 193.75 and won by 2.5 dk pts.

    Baynes
    Jaylen
    Horford
    Morris
    Tatum
    Tristan

  • KindGuy

    Msbbishop1028 only had 3 entries too.

    $30 to $100,000… not bad

  • Yahchanan

    Uh-oh they’re trying to sneak back in all Showdown. They need to do it like last year Monday’s game should play into Tuesday.

    I get the LBJ fade to differentiate in a huge way from the pack while betting on the Celts defense and Stevens’ scheme smarts as a coach. TT and TT as the only Cleve player rostered was the bold call that made it work.

  • P0key

    Faded LBJ in full roster cash and h2h

    Then played him as my mvp in that single game boost.

  • scott33

    Winning all my cash games with CP3, Klay, Ariza & Dray left. A little under the cash line in GPPS so I hope those 4 guys combine for 5x tomorrow. I hate Ariza, hope that bum shows up. I had 4600 left & had no choice but to roster his sorry ass. On a side note, the person who won the $1 SE Boost contest on FD would’ve won 100k had they entered the $7.77 contest. Literally the perfect lineup

    I think the whole MVP, STAR, and PRO that FD is doing may actually have more of an effect on the issue with ties than I initially thought.

    I’m going to go on a limb here, and say less than 40 people will tie for 1st today.

    Only one winner on FD today.

    I think I might like this new format.

    Still waiting for a Monday Tuesday slate.

  • XxHeisenbergxX

    Someone has to explain to me how Bos/Cle opened as a PK in Vegas? Now usually I would take the money I won today on the Celts and parlay it but this has red flags all over it.

    I could see if it was in Cleveland but I dont see what could possibly change in game 2. Would love to hear your guys thoughts.

  • tmarohl

    This will be a seven game series. Home teams will win through game 6. Lebeummer probably shows up and wins in 7

  • superjon

    Harden, Paul, and Ariza

    I think Boston wins in 6, hope you’re right though. JR Smith & George Hill are atrocious

  • w3stcoastoff3ns3

    $50 into the $10 GPP on DK, $0 dollars out. Too much Jeff Green and Kevin Love. SMH. Anxious to see who kills me from the HOU vs. GS game, lol.

  • superjon

    4 lineups. 4 different MVPs

    Harden
    Durant
    CP3
    Curry

    The Supreme Court has overturned the federal ban on sports wagering.

  • ASitar

    Nick Young got a lotta minutes when they played Houston this year. Does he tonight?

    No. Looney might draw the start at center, though.

  • whothis

    Had Baynes, but no TT, he was key for lu construction in showdown

  • horsebot9000

    nvm

  • IronMonkey415

    They don’t adjust much game from game. If the they had Clev 3-4 pts better on a neutral court according to power rankings before Sunday, they more or less stick to it in the short term. Vegas also has a tendency to factor in bounce back spots in the playoffs when the “better” team is involved. I don’t think clev is the better team, but the series odds say that vegas does or at least the betting public does, almost the same thing. The easiest way to think about it is if GS got it’s ass handed to it tonight, my best guess is they would be 1-2 pt favorites the next game regardless of how bad they looked tonight as opposed to the short dogs they are tonight Good teams and/or teams that are “better” than their opponents on paper have a very real tendency to not play 2 bad games in a row in the NBA playoffs. Also, sometimes you see a total off by 20 pts in game 1 and find it surprising that the total barely moved for game 2. Same logic, vegas tends to stick to its guns from game 1 to 2 more than the public would think.

    With all that said, this is a horrible matchup for Cleveland. How bad TOR choked really his how bad Cleve’s D is and how little Bron can rely on anyone but himself. Normally not a deal breaker because he constantly surprises you with how good he is, but Bos’s D has the players/coaching to put a lid on him.

    Good luck and congrats on the game 1 call, I don’t gamble on the NBA anymore but I’m guessing the home team covers most or maybe all of the games in this series.

  • mike42

    I played TT last night because I thought his minutes might go up. Series to series he was my best guess of who would get more run. Who is it tonight? Does R. Anderson or Zaza get more run in this series? Any thoughts?

    Edit: At least 1 player on each team will get extra run. Series to series it always happens. I remember Kerr saying that because NO’s was playing small ball they had to limit the number of guys they used since their bench was C heavy. I think it’s Zaza but IDK (obviously).
