 2016 European Tour - Italian Open
Posted by Anonymous on Wednesday, September 14, 2016 - 20:05

The European Tour takes over DraftKings' main golf slate this week with the Italian Open. Golf Club Milano will host the event for the second consecutive year, but the course has no recent Italian Open history prior to 2015. Without a significant sample for course history or fit, the best bet this week is to take strong overall golfers relative to their prices. The first golfer to consider this week is Francesco Molinari ($9,500). He's one of the best golfers in the field, and significantly better value than the more expensive options. A native Italian, Molinari has succeeded in previous Italian Opens and should be motivated to continue that trend in his home country...

Jason Day ($11,600) – When you can roster the best golfer in the world for under $12k, he's an easy consideration. Day leads the PGA in total strokes gained per round and strokes gained putting per round. He's finished in the top 30 in 16 consecutive tournaments, with 3 wins over that span. Day is my favorite cash game option in the elite tier, and he is simply too good to fade for anyone playing multiple GPP lineups...

TPC Boston presents the easiest scoring environment of the FedExCup Playoffs. Prior results on this course suggest that players with limited driving distance are unlikely to be hindered. Be sure not to overlook players like Zach Johnson ($8,000), Russell Knox ($7,500), Steve Stricker ($7,000), and Webb Simpson ($6,100), each of whom have the ability to produce a solid result at a modest price. Bombers can still succeed at this course, but they will have to excel in other areas with their diminished edge off the tee...

 Strategic Insights: Look Beyond Vegas Odds in Golf
Posted by Anonymous on Wednesday, August 31, 2016 - 23:15

Many DFS players use Vegas odds to make smart decisions. For instance, if the Panthers are favored by 3 over the Broncos with an Over/Under of 42, we can be confident that the Panthers project to score about 22.5 points and Broncos project to score about 19.5 points. This assumption is reasonable because sportsbooks receive substantial action on both sides of the spread and both sides of the Over/Under. If either of these lines are set incorrectly in either direction, a sportsbook could lose a significant amount of money to sharp bettors who play the profitable side. The implied point totals also provide information that is highly applicable to NFL DFS, as they can go a long way toward projecting touchdowns, a frequent and important NFL DFS stat...
