NBA Daily Fantasy Basketball – Sleepers + Cash Game Picks 12/20

Got an early start to the NBA today if you feel like tipping it off early. Then there are partial slates that run throughout the day. Still not a ton of talent on the court, and after the early games tip-off it does get a little more thin on talent. Sorry for no NBA information yesterday. I got so busy building college football lineups (84 of them to be exact) I literally didn’t feel like grinding over NBA.

Here are the early game target scores – as you move along and play smaller slates – these scores should continue to drop.

Draftkings: 260
Fanduel: 275
Yahoo: 225

Here are some all-day cash game targets.

Draftkings: Thad Young, Brook Lopez, DeRozan
Fanduel: Thad Young, Lillard, Knight, Giannis

Not a ton of value, more mid-range on a slate like this one, however you should be able to fill out lineups that are slightly more balanced than usual.

G – Jameer Nelson
$12 Yahoo

G – Dennis Schroder
$11 Yahoo

G – Tony Wroten
$4,000 Draftkings

G – Gerald Green
$3,900 Fanduel
$12 Yahoo

F – Luol Deng
$4,600 Fanduel

C – Bismack Biyombo
$14 Yahoo

C – Nikola Jokic
$3,900 Draftkings
$10 Yahoo

12/19 Recap: I played ZERO basketball. On 12/18 I only played the Turbo slate on Draftkings and GOT SMOKED because I only had either Pau Gasol or Jimmy Butler from a 4 OT game. I put up a HUGE score and pretty much bubbled Double-Ups because the game kept bringing up everyone else’s scores. I ended up tilting a bit – entering over $200 worth of College Football contests yesterday. Turns out – I had a GREAT day of CFB …. tripling my bankroll on Yahoo, which had serious overlay on all it’s CFB GPP tournaments, essentially turning them into 50/50’s with upside. I’ll likely have a light day of NBA today as I prepare for more college football this week.
