 2019 NBA All-Star Game Showdown
Posted by Benny Ricciardi on Sunday, February 17, 2019 - 20:00

So both sites are offering a showdown slate for the 2019 NBA All-Star Game, and we know you degenerates are going to play it. If so, the least I can do is make sure you guys have the information you need to try to take it down. This is a tough slate to consider, as every one of these guys is normally someone we want to target in DFS. The problem is they are all the man on their respective teams, and as high scoring as this game tends to be, they still only play with one ball...

Huge 11 game slate in the Association tonight as the All-Star break approaches. I usually try to narrow down to the top three to four plays at each position for you guys. I think it gives you enough options at different price points with the guys I feel the most comfortable. The safest floors at the best prices, in the best spots. With so many games today, we have big lists. I started to narrow it down a little, but it’s tough to cut guys off the list who are still very good plays even if I liked someone better. When you are building a roster, sometimes you need...

Small five-game slate for NBA DFS action tonight. Some games should be entertaining to watch though. Four of the five have high totals in the 220+ range, with the one exception being the matchup between the Spurs and Grizzlies at just a 208. We do not have a lot of major injury news yet. The one major piece is...

With the all-star break approaching, we have a monster 9 game slate tonight. One thing I can tell you is that 320 is not winning a tournament tonight. Hell, 300 might be the cash line in 50/50s and doubles ups. It’s going to take guys getting at least 5-6X at every position and a couple smashing through that to win today, so fringe options are not recommended.

So this is a shitshow of a slate for NBA DFS on Sunday. On DraftKings we have two separate slates with the first being a two gamer starting at 3PM and the second a three gamer that starts with the 6PM game. FanDuel decided not to even include the 6PM game...
