DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks (11/15/18): NBA DFS Lineups

These mini-slates are always unique. Fewer options, less separation and all that. However, this one is uniquely unique in that we'll see three of the league's fastest teams (Hawks, Clippers, and Warriors) matched up with three of the league's slowest (Nuggets, Spurs, and Rockets) in a battle of opposing styles -- kinda like when Bruce...

FanDuel NBA DFS Lineup Picks (11/15/18): Daily Fantasy Basketball Advice

There are only three games tonight and while that usually seems like a bummer, it's still something we can work with. Sometimes having more games and the extra options are a nice bonus that alludes for very creative lineups that can cash out. With smaller slates, we need to be precise and have to make... Read More

DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks (11/14/18): NBA DFS Lineups

An 11-game slate is just what we needed after last night's measly 3-game slate. The options seem almost endless, but there are specific matchups that need to be exposed. The Wizards are still struggling across the board, the Magic are trending up but lack defensive firepower, and the Lakers-Trail Blazers is going to be the... Read More

FanDuel NBA DFS Lineup Picks (11/13/18): Daily Fantasy Basketball Advice

The league features only three games on Tuesday night and with Golden State playing their second of a back-to-back against the Hawks, be mindful that there is a good chance that they will clean up quick which could mean that Kevin Durant, Draymond Green, and Klay Thompson could sit out more than normal to get...

We end the week with a total of six games, but we’ll focus on the five-game main slate for Sunday. Sorry Hornets and Pistons fans.

There are 10 games total today, but we are only going to focus on the main, 8-game slate. Tonight's games are not that appealing from an outside perspective and all but one are inter-conference games. This is good for competition and it gives us a good idea of what teams to really target today. Immediately,... Read More

FanDuel NBA DFS Lineup Picks (11/8/18): Daily Fantasy Basketball Advice

There are only four games tonight and every day we are seeing progress with each team.

A massive upgrade from last night's measly slate with 10 games available. DFS lineups tonight will once again be revolving around the Lakers and their lack of defense.
