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. The goal of this article is to dig through the slate, highlight our top plays and help you identify the best slate strategy across your NBA DFS line-ups.

A Quick Look Back:
Looking back at Tuesday’s NBA DFS slate we saw winning GPP scores lower than they normally are with single entry GPP winning scores in the 315 range while large field MME style tourneys sat in the 340 range – both of which were low for a slate of that size.
With scores at the top this low, it meant a much lower cash line across every contest and what really stood out to me on this slate was how front-loaded ownership was. I mentioned that my strategy on DraftKings yesterday was to backload my builds to maximize flexibility with strong games later in the slate and as the day went on, it felt more and more like those late games would come in at minimal ownership.
Well as you can see below – this was my lineup in the $40 Single Entry.
Guys – LeBron James was under 1% owned.
I really wonder, had this game been in Brooklyn with a 7 PM EST tip-off would we have seen the same plays get this low of ownership? Simply waiting on your builds and using the late swap flexibility that DK offers can be a very viable strategy when you are not overly sold on the early games of a slate.
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!
