NBA DFS Picks and Pivots

Welcome back boys and girls to today’s NBA DFS Picks and Pivots here at DraftManager!

For those of you who are finding us for the first time or need a little refresher, Picks and Pivots is a DFS first look column focused on helping you think through how to attack each NBA DFS slate. Picks and Pivots is not a simple “best plays” column but rather it focuses on slate strategy and roster construction to help give you insight into how I will look to play this slate.

A Quick Look Back:

Looking back at Sunday’s NBA DFS split slates, the early three-game slate saw scores sitting around 330 while the Main Slate was a slugfest as winning GPP scores pushed upwards of 370-380 on a high scoring night.

I loved both of these slates for GPP’s yesterday and while the early slate Pelicans/Twolves stack failed to deliver, the exact strategy we had for the Main Slate in stacking up the Bucks and Suns, paid off in a very big way as I ended up with multiple top 10 GPP finishes on the night and a bankroll building ROI!

Stacking the Bucks trio of Bledsoe/Middleton/Ersan was neither contrarian or sneaky, but what ended up being a key differentiator was how people ran back this game, or in many cases – did notAron Baynes was really the only popular piece here with Devin Booker coming in at a reasonable 15% range of ownership – but it was the low-owned pairing of Ricky Rubio and Mikal Bridges that really made this game stack work as the duo was sub 5$% owned and combined for 110+ fantasy points.

We talked about this in the Slack yesterday here at DraftManager as folks had 2,3 and 4 Bucks in their builds how it was important to run it back with multiple opposition pieces whenever you get that focused on one team like the Bucks and that was something that the field, by and large, did not do. By going all-in on one spot, you kept pace with the field on the chalkier pieces of this game and then got leverage by taking it a step further with a full game stack on low owned pieces.

We just released an AWESOME deal – for $10 a week, you can get SIX SPORTS worth of content in our All-Sports Package including NBA, NHL, PGA, Soccer (UCL/EPL), XFL and NASCAR. If you tried any of these sports out during the ASB and want to continue, this is the perfect way to keep it going at one of the lowest price points in the industry!

Now let’s head to tonight’s slate!
