NBA DFS 11/8/18 Ben’s Thoughts

What’s up guys! I had another extremely nice night on FanDuel last night (core plays subs know) and I’m really excited and proud about the start we have had to the season. That being said, bankroll management is probably the most important factor in DFS, and with just a short dour game slate I will be dialing back my exposure in cash games and overall. Four games typically are low volume GPP-only nights and we have some nice slates on Friday and Saturday to get our cash games in, let’s get to it!

 

Overall Thoughts

So, the biggest news with this slate overall is that Draymond Green and Russell Westbrook both will not be playing tonight. This gives massive bumps to guys like Steph Curry, Kevin Durant, Paul George and Dennis Schroder and with the low amount of games I can certainly see this slate getting pretty chalky. On FanDuel, Jordan Bell is listed at center but is minimum price and allows you to spend up for pretty much anyone you want on the entire slate. If I was playing single entry or one lineup, I would 100% be locking him in and then be looking to differentiate at center on my other teams. He played pretty much all of his minutes in the second half of their last game when Green was hobbled, and it wouldn’t shock me if he was announced starting. Some may be concerned with George’s dud last night without Russ, but the numbers are good enough with Russ off the floor that I wouldn’t worry about one off night. George fits into the tournament conversation for me, behind guys like Durant and Giannis Antetokounmpo. The final key news piece to this slate is Tobias Harris being questionable, his absence would give a nice uptick to some of the mid-priced Clippers player.
