Does the end of the NFL season make it harder to cash in NBA DFS
Every year around this time, I notice that it gets tougher to cash in NBA DFS. I don’t have any data to validate the reason. I suspect it is the influx of DFS players transitioning from NFL to NBA DFS. The 50/50 and double ups cash lines go up and GPP’s minimum cash lines go as well. In the past, I have just gradual reduced the amount I played after Christmas and stopped altogether in early March. The NBA season ends in early April. By March, teams are in full tank mode and it becomes more difficult for the casual player to navigate all the late scratches, veterans being put shutdown for the season or resting because they locked into their playoff spot.
How to manage the higher scores
Instead of shutting it down early this NBA season, I am going to reduce my volume. I am going to use the post-Christmas through March time to study winning cash lineups and try to improve. Now, that I am using RotoQL, which is one of the most comprehensive DFS tools on the market, I can analyze my process and results and compare them to others. In addition to playing less, it may also be a good idea to really manage contest selections. Play single entry GPP’s, multipliers and cash games.
Get ready for DFS baseball
I played DFS baseball seriously for the first time last season and had a decent amount of success. I had always been hesitant because I am not a big fan and thought the process of selecting line-ups was too complex and time consuming for someone with just an hour after work to make lines. Using Rotogrinder’s comprehensive game breakdown to find the best plays and using RotoQL to build lineups I had a profitable season. No matter what you decide to do, keep playing, reviewing your process and improving.
