    It’s rostering from late games works better? Anyone else get that feeling?

    8 of the top 11 teams in pace last year were in the Western conference. Later games, in general, have been higher scoring recently. Also, the late games are usually opening up optimal lineups with higher scores then just using the early games (just because there are more options).

    Celtics fans, do both Yabusele and Theis play backup C? Any info on which is the better pick with Baynes out but Morris debuting?

    I don’t play cash games as GPPs tend to have a higher min payout than cash games.

    ??? Where do you play where that is the case? DK and FD both have terrible min payouts in their GPPS.

    Can’t play FD in Texas unless they’ve changed things. During the preseason, I only play the quarter arcade on DK which pays 2X (.50) at the min cash line, cash is 1.8X. All my regular season action is on Yahoo where GPP’s pay a min of 2X at the cash line vs 1.8 for cash.

    Double up 2x so……. I know what you’re saying though. 43% chance of cashing in DU, 18-27% chance of cashing in GPP

    Any thoughts on Wall? Will he be playing 25+ minutes?

    Thing is though, I found last season the actual points needed to min cash was extremely close to the 50/50 line. Many times the cash line was actually higher than tournaments. Also 2X is the max payout of a double up vs 400X in the Quarter Arcade (or 500X on a typical Yahoo $1 slate). I’m not suggesting everyone do the same, everyone has their system. I’ve had a 2.5X return so far on my preseason deposit playing only the QA which is fine for me as I’m looking at this more as passing time for the real season to start.

    I was 100% Harden before. Might pull that back just a bit.

    Brad Stevens is eying 20-30 minutes of action for all five of his starters.

    Tis true, the scores for cashing in DUs was higher last year then the year before. I keep it simple, make 1 cash LU, throw it also in a GPP and make 3-10 GPP LUs.

    Bargain bin starters starters so far: Ed Davis, Dwayne Bacon

    Michael Kidd-Gilchrist still away from team tending to a personal matter. Per @rick_bonnell – Hornets beat writer.

    I don’t play cash either. Hard to get excited about them.

    Everyone should be playing Embiid tonight. I’m stacking the Sixers and Suns with Harden.

    Even though Embiid is a per-minute monster. I just don’t see him getting more than maybe 10-15 minutes tonight.

  • Tyree901

    Zach Collins starting for Portland tonight. Per @Chold – Trail Blazers beat writer.

  • windsorpg

    Collins or Swanigan?

  • jglumsic

    Anyone know if Covington starting for Sixers tonight?
