    The question Is draftkings based but I have seen screenshots of the same thing happening on other dfs sites as well so it spawns the question.

    I know people ask all the time but I really just want to know if anyone has done some definitive statistics or have a definitive answer for this so I know what to play going forward this MLB season.

    So I Cashed in both double ups and gpps yesterday but I thought after NBA we were gonna go back to normal differentials between gpps and cash games but again my gpps had a lower cashline then the mass double ups(biggest difference I saw was that The quarter arcade was 110.80 to cash where the giant 2 dollar double up was 126 to cash) and just all around in general the gpp cashlines seemed lower than double ups. It seems like its not even worth it to play cash games when the whole point was for it to be easier to cash into than gpps but I guess it isn’t the case anymore. Anyone else notice this?

    Im assuming that with more people trying to take DFS seriously and with more sources trying to highlight the top plays its making cashlines higher which I dont have too much of a problem with but I mean tournaments in the general sense are supposed to be harder to get into the winning percentage where as almost “half” the field win in double ups. So when I’m seeing my lineup cashing in gpps before it gets passed the double up cashline its a little annoying I guess haha

    I started playing DFS in around August of last year in the mid point of the MLB season so I cant really remember if this is all normal for baseball. Should I just run my cash lineup as a gpp train instead of cash games? Imo there is way too much influx when it comes to the difference between gpp cashlines and double up/50-50 cashlines so idk just yet but after seeing NBA become this way more consistently during the period of this last season I dont really know what to think.

    ill still play double ups like normal for the next week or so to compare but this became a consistent issue in the latter part of the NBA season so I would guess if it continues double ups(at least to me) would be pointless.
    Anybody have a solution to this I know some people say play small field single entry double ups(which Ive seen have the same problem as well) so Is there really a “Best strategy” when it comes to cash games? What do you guys think?

    It was due to the overlay in the large GPPs in the early slate. The $3 3 entry max tourney paid out like 65% of the field because it only filled to like 50%.

    Yeah I guess that makes sense then completely forgot about overlay was just paying attention to the cash line and figured it was gonna be an issue like NBA lol

    Also Kershaw was around 75% owned in double ups but only around 25% in GPPs. Since he was by far the highest scoring SP it naturally raised the cash line in double ups. Kind of a unique circumstance but it can happen from time to time, especially when he is pitching b/c he is rightfully always highly owned in cash.

    This. DK will continue to drop the entry numbers for the GPP’s, so I think it will even out plenty soon.

    50-100 max entries into big double ups. A lot of the better players can swing a score line with that many entries.
