    Olympic Golf DFS on DK!

    Interesting – wasnt expecting it tbh

  • reeses

    Wow, interesting. Going to be crazy chalk lineups with the small field and mostly no-names.

    Yes; this will help get me by until the season starts…all I’ve done in mlb is basically wash; I need basketball back to help my BR

    Me too I suck at MLB. Anyhow, I really don’t even know where to begin for research anyone have any ideas? I heard people talking about stacking Team USA but I doubt that will do.

    I agree that probably won’t work as I’m sure they are expected to blow teams out. I think the key will be finding the closer games and taking the lesser known players that will get a lot of run in those games. There is probably a nice edge to be had if you can dig up info on other countries expected rotations and determine which games will be the closest and highest scoring.

    Either way, major props to DK for offering this. Getting some unexpected extra basketball action with nice GPP prizepools is pretty exciting as I really hate the grind that is MLB.

    Anyone know where to find box scores for the exhibition games for all teams?

    Lol, I came here to literally post the exact same question. Finding that info would be extremely useful. I’ve done a bunch of google searches and I’ve been able to find the USA box scores, but I’m having a really hard time finding China’s and am assuming it will be equally difficult to find the other countries. This information has to exist somewhere though.

  • TheImmortalGoud

    I found some stats for the qualifying tournaments that just took place for Serbia, Croatia, and France. Working on putting together a spreadsheet, but still looking for more data. At first glance; it appears that Serbia will blow out everyone in the A block with the exception of the US.

  • TheImmortalGoud

    Found a bunch of stuff. Should have some stuff ready to go on Thursday

    Would you mind linking the info you found or pm’ing me with it? I’d like to do my own analysis. Would be much appreciated.

    Essentially just search fibalivestats on Twitter, and you will find links to a bunch of games. You won’t find all the games, so you will have to guess what the URL is to some of the games.

    Awesome, will do, thanks a lot. Were you able to find a link with the exhibition schedule so I know what games I’m searching for? I’m having a hard time even finding that.

    I found some betting sites that claimed to show the history of some of the games, but I did not dig into it too much, because there was no box score data.

    Awesome stuff that there is olympic basketball and golf. MLB is impossible to play, awful scoring, awful sport, awful everything, tedious as it can get… DK is trying to force people to play that. Anyway the first slate the results are rather simple to predict. USA obliterates China, Serbia will blow out Venezuela, Argentina will comfortably beat Nigeria, Spain will beat Croatia without too much problems… closest one in my book will be Brazil v. Lithuania, Lithuania will edge it imo, time for Valanciunas.

    My question——-the Olympics are amateur correct ? Then why can’t we still play CFB and CBB ?

  • Juanpi

    The events they are offering are not amateur. Those playing golf and basketball are almost entirely professionals. Except prob for Venezuela or Nigeria all those guys you see are professionals.

    Let’s not complain too loudly about it either way as it is a very nice and unexpected addition to DFS for the month of August, ha ha…

    You are correct——-shhh—-I am with you. I like the addition. I am just already missing CFB/CBB.

    Olympics have allowed professional athletes in nearly every sport for decades.

    If anyone has box scores for the exhibition games, if you could dm them to me that would be amazing (non-US ones I got those :) ) I’m trying to put together content for RG and those are the last things I’m missing

    Thanks!
