 DFS Bankroll Management
Posted by Benny Ricciardi on Saturday, September 1, 2018 - 12:13

<p>What is your goal for this NFL season? Is it to have some fun and stay in the game for the full 18 weeks? Is it to qualify for a live final? Are you looking to make a life-changing score? I ask these questions because I am about to let you in on a little secret here. There is no one size fits all bankroll management technique. Certain principles do apply, but how a bankroll should be managed is very different from person to person and should be based on what you are trying to accomplish.</p><p>Look inside the successful players in our own company. You have guys like Tommy, DC, Kevin, and Jefe who are predominately tournament players. They put large sums of money in play every weekend of the NFL season and are looking to make five and six-figure scores. They may lay out...</p>

 Cash Game Playbook
Posted by Benny Ricciardi on Saturday, September 1, 2018 - 12:07

I will be the first to admit that I am boring, just like playing DFS cash games is. I did not buy a cool new sports car with my big basketball DFS winnings in 2015. I opted for a sensible four-door SUV with a third-row seat so I can fit my kids and all their stuff. I did not retrofit my living room into the ultimate man cave with four 60-inch televisions after a big MLB DFS night. I opted for one big 70-inch flat screen in my living room with the profits I ground out in DFS baseball over the summer of 2017. Grinding out profits is not as sexy as a splashy $100,000 screenshot, but I can assure you, the money is still green. They will accept it at your local car dealership or Best Buy. No one ever asks you how it ended up in your bank account, as long as the debit card transaction clears.

 Transition: Season-long to DFS
Posted by Vlad Sedler on Saturday, September 1, 2018 - 11:45

DFS football is truly an experience of extreme highs and lows. One minute, you’re feeling good. The DraftKings app is flashing green as you’re up a thousand bucks on your $80 in entries. Without warning, a chalky A.J. Green catches a fifty-yard pass in the end zone. You didn’t play him that day, and all that green drops back down to zero. A good and profitable Sunday can kick-start your week with an extra pep in your step in the office on Monday. A less than stellar one makes you question your lineup decisions and all the hours of research you spent that week. With the highly volatile nature of football and DFS football in general, it’s important to make the right steps and build our own process if we’re making the transition from season-long fantasy football to DFS...

When I start making GPP lineups, I try to project how a particular game will play out. Football is such a unique game; the style and philosophy of a team and its opponent changes from season to season, week to week. Those who can predict how teams will structure their game plan have a big edge in DFS. Unlike seasonal fantasy football, we only care about ONE Sunday.

 NFL Betting for the Sharp Bettor: Part 3
Posted by @PlusEVAnalytics on Monday, September 11, 2017 - 09:15

In this final instalment of my NFL betting series, we will go deeper into ways to find +EV bets for yourself. But first, a confession.

+EV Ain’t Easy

Loyal readers, I haven’t lied to you but I have misled you. I’ve been talking about +108 coin flips and 25 projected completions when the line is 23.5 as if they are everyday occurrences. The real truth is this – if someone offers you +108 on a coin flip, it’s most likely a weighted coin. If you have Tom Brady projected for 25 completions when the line is 23.5, your projections are most likely wrong. The simple reason is that every bet has two sides.

 Winning a Live Final

“So, you say you want to qualify for a live final?”

Quick show of hands. Who’s interested in qualifying for a live final? Wow! It looks like there are a lot of you out there. I’ll give those of you that didn’t raise your hand a chance to reconsider because, trust me, you’re interested in qualifying for a live final. Over the years, I’ve been to my fair share of life finals (currently nine and counting), so I feel like I might know a thing or two when it comes to qualifying. If last year is any indication, this will be a huge NFL season for the Guru Elite family. Now, I love to get my “Scrooge McDuck on” each week as much as the next guy, but what better way to top off a great NFL season than with a trip to a live final?

Those who can predict how teams will structure their game plan have a big edge in DFS. Unlike seasonal fantasy football, we only care about ONE Sunday. We don’t get the luxury of buying a players complete output for a season, no we have to identify and select player in situations that will exceed or at minimum reach their projection or average.

Elite Mafia, what’s good? For those of you who haven’t seen me around I mainly do NBA content for us. My username on FD/DK is 3rd_and_schlong, and I play a lot of cash games (and some tournaments) in the three major spots: NFL, NBA, and MLB. I started playing initially when I was in college and things kind of took off after that. My twitter is @brycemauro. Through this article my goal is to make you guys better cash game players. I’m going to split this into three sections: Game Entry, Cash Game Concepts, and Site Specific Strategy.
