  1. CIMB Classic Kuala Lumpur G&CC (West Course) Bukit Kiara, Malaysia 6,985 yard, par 72 The top 60 from last year's FedExCup Points list, the top 10 from the Asian Tour Order of Merit, and eight sponsor exemptions will tee it up Thursday, which means DFS contests lock Wednesday evening in North America. There is no cut in this event. This is the third time that the contest has been played on this course, so course history is only relevant for the last two years. The Malaysian Open on the European Tour plays here annually here also. Anirban Lahiri won that event in February. --- Q
  2. Shriners Hospitals for Children Open TPC Summerlin Las Vegas, NV Par 71, 7,255 yards 4 par 3s, 11 par 4s, 3 par 5s. 144 runners, top 70 make the cut. @ShrinersOpen TPC Summerlin lies in the Northwest suburbs of Las Vegas and is a classic resort course. We have lots of history on this course and what we know is that scores are going to be low. The average winning score is -22.5 and the average cut line is -2.5. Major stats that stick out to me are total driving, greens in regulation, strokes gained tee to green, and strokes gained putting. You can play DFS golf on site
  3. It's free money Tuesday, the day after all the people playing NFL get paid. The only things to play in DFS today are a two-game MLB slate in the playoffs and a nine-game NHL slate tonight. I expect with the early start time and low guarantees for MLB action to be less than exciting, so I am devoting my energy to the NHL tonight.

  5. Football! Are you as psyched as I am for this season? I am especially excited for this weekend in DFS, because it is the biggest weekend of daily fantasy sports EVER, especially if you add Tuesday to the weekend with the first ever DraftKings Millionaire Maker for baseball! --- Qualify for the Star Fantasy Leagues $150,000 Fantasy Football Championship for as little as $2 at StarFantasyLeagues.com. Get in the game! --- Nobody cares about baseball though until Monday, so let’s discuss some football theory with direct application to this opening weekend. There is a l
  6. Sunday Funday! Lots of action today with MLB and NASCAR as we wind down the clock on summer and all things not NFL DFS. With week 1 right around the corner, we can expect an influx of new users this week as well as a decline in action for all sports not NFL... until Free Money Tuesday in 9 days, of course, and the first MLB Milly Maker that it brings on DraftKings. A quick industry note/gripe. Yahoo entered the DFS market in July and got very little traffic. With NFL approaching, though, they offered a hefty deposit bonus and started running higher stakes games, which got my attention
  7. Hey y'all, this is written by my friend Ryan Tepen. I used to back him in poker. He used to play football. He's our College Football expert, and he does a fine job introducing himself. Hello all you daily fantasy grinders out there, I'm Ryan Tepen, a former Division One third string long snapper at the University of Missouri. After my playing days were over, I continued to work with Mizzou as a Student Assistant Coach for then Offensive Coordinator and Offensive Line Coach Dave Christensen. I also worked as a Strength and Conditioning Coach under Coach Pat Ivey. Following my time at
  8. TPC Boston Norton, Massachusetts Par 71, 7,242 yards. 5500 ft2 greens of Bentgrass at 11.5’ 57 bunkers and 3 hazards This tournament starts on Friday, not Thursday. 99 players in the field, Sergio Garcia is out. He’s ranked 31st in the FedExCup points assuring himself a spot at the BMW Championship next week, but he’ll have to do some work there because only the top 30 make the TOUR Championship in 3 weeks. Everybody gets week one of NFL off. The top 70 players qualify for the BMW Championship next week Top 70 and ties make the cut this weekend. They’ve playe
  9. Mmmmmmarrrrggghhhh. I have some extra hangover, would you like some? I made my first final table of a poker tournament in a long time yesterday. I haven't played very many poker tournaments in the last year and a half. I finished 6th for $11k and celebrated by drinking a case of beer and bottle of whiskey while ravaging the Allies controlled by roommate in a game of Axis and Allies. He went to bed and then I played Stratego with another roomie. I don't remember going to sleep but I remember waking up at 1:30 in the afternoon today. Full slate tonight. I'm only playing GPPs and will
  10. NASCAR happens tonight on DraftKings as opposed to tomorrow, don't forget to get those lineups in soon! 12 games on the MLB slate so lots of action going on, let's dive right in. Handful of aces on the mound tonight. Greinke seems like the obvious play at Houston. We all know that HOU dongs a lot and isn't striking out as much as they used to (they are still 2nd in the majors behind the Cubs in strikeouts though), but Greinke is still the best looker. Sonny Gray may be a safer option at the same price point, but Vegas only has Gray slightly more favored than Greinke; HOU and TB have nea
  11. Happy Tuesday! Lots of action tonight with all 30 MLB teams in play. Big contests on both FD and DK tonight with the $25 Slam and $20 Tuesday Special both sporting $300k guarantees. We never had prize pools that big in poker on a Tuesday and we're just getting started in DFS. Can't wait until football comes around! Coors Field and Kershaw are both in play tonight, it's going to be tough to have both. I don't think I will be touching Kershaw on DK with his 15k price tag and less than optimal matchup. Don't get me wrong, Oakland isn't a team to be feared, and I think Kershaw is a
  12. You don’t know anything about sports? That’s fine. I do, and still felt outmatched when considering jumping into the DFS world. I bet you are good at analyzing data and applying that data to a gambling environment though. Me too. That’s exactly what got me into DFS. It took me about a year after Black Friday to discover Daily Fantasy Sports (DFS). A part of me was turned off by the fact that the same law that deemed online poker illegal also paved the way for people to gamble on fantasy sports, defining the game as one of skill. They were absolutely correct that fantasy sports ar
  13. Before we talk about hockey, earlier this year, the NBA partnered with FanDuel. The NBA earned an equity stake in FanDuel in exchange for promotion and such. On Wednesday, NBA Commissioner Adam Silver called for federal regulation of DFS, but maintained that the NBA would not be withdrawing its partnership with FanDuel. The NBA maintains that DFS is not gambling because it is a game of skill. Silver's comments are a good sign after a couple of weeks of not good news. This would be a prime opportunity for the NBA to bail and since they're not I feel better about things. It's hockey
  14. In this daily fantasy sports strategy article, we shall discuss how to use the late swap function strategically on DraftKings and other sites that allow late swap. Every Monday morning I go through my head-to-head match-ups in NFL and consider how I might increase my chances to win and in some cases create a chance to win out of nothing. Consider this example, a very simple one, from Week 5: I'm losing by eight points. Let the record show that the guy rostered Latavius Murray in cash instead of Devonta Freeman. Pretty poor play, but I'm getting beat regardless and just like
  15. This past Wednesday, I woke up wrapped in a sleeping bag for the 22nd consecutive night. I had just completed my third descent of the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon and after 280 miles, instead of loading gear into my raft to head down river, the raft became gear and needed to be loaded into a truck. --- Qualify for the Star Fantasy Leagues $150,000 Fantasy Football Championship for as little as $2 at StarFantasyLeagues.com.

  16. In less than three hours the first ever Milly Makeron DraftKingswill lock and there still aren’t 30k entrants. The contest needs 125,000 entrants to not overlay. I expect it to overlay hard. We’re trying to beat a bunch of people still though, and stacking is proven to be the most consistent way to raise your ceiling in MLB DFS, so let’s take a look at the matchups and I’ll give you some thoughts. Visit DraftKings to play. Cubs @ Pirates - The first game today is actually the 2nd game. Both teams have team totals of 3.5 and their lineups probably won’t come out early since they are pl
  17. Yawn. Good morning. Happy Saturday. Baseball and NASCAR happens today, and I anticipate that they go slightly overlooked today with everybody thinking about NFL tomorrow. The action that does come in on those games should be soft action, but I too do not have as much time as I would like to devote to making baseball and NASCAR lineups when I have about 50 NFL lineups to make between now and tomorrow morning too. --- Qualify for the Star Fantasy Leagues $150,000 Fantasy Football Championship for as little as $2 at StarFantasyLeagues.com.

  18. We nailed the pitching yesterday with Kershaw and Hamels, and Hamels went off at less than 10% ownership so I was stoked with that pick. The Angels scored one run and I'm pretty sure that Tulo outscored my entire Angels stack so I didn't make any money yesterday. I did drink a bunch of beers at the state fair though and woke up alive this morning so I feel like a winner. NASCAR and MMA don't happen until next weekend. Golf doesn't start until Friday. Fortunately for us they play baseball every day and tonight we have 11 games to choose from. Detroit is playing in Toronto now while BO
  19. The Barclays The first event of the FedExCup Playoffs. Plainfield Country Club Edison, NJ 7,012 yards, par 70 Greens are Poa annua, 7500 ft2 on average, stimpmeter at 13’. 122 bunkers, 4 hazards. Top 100 in points play next week. FedExCup Standings Founded as the Hillside Tennis Club in 1890, it failed quickly because there was no money in tennis then either. Renamed in 1904 and turned into a golf course. Battle of Short Hills was fought here June 26, 1777 during Revolutionary War, first battle after US adopted Stars and Stripes as flag. What we do
  20. MLB Championship Week rumbles on at DraftKings with the $300k High Heat Championship and the $10k Quarter Arcade Championshp tonight. With price points of $100 and $0.25, there is action for everybody. If you have never played DFS before, tonight is a great night to get your feet wet with an entry or two into the Quarter Arcade. Check out this article I wrote last week about how to play DFS today, for your first time. No day slate this Wednesday as only Houston at New York and Oakland at Seattle are the day games. That leaves us with 13 games to choose from tonight and the options ab
  21. Hello. Remember that first time you discovered poker? If you continue down this article then there is a strong chance you will fall in love with Daily Fantasy Sports (DFS) like myself and many others like us that came from poker. DFS is very much a game like poker, and we can gamble on DFS online. The minimum buy-in is a quarter, there are freerolls, and there are major companies involved, such as: MLB, NHL, Madison Square Garden, Kraft Group, Google, Time Warner, NBC, Comcast, and Fox Sports. Still with me? Good. First, let’s get you signed up with a DFS site and get you gambling
  22. Wyndham Championship Sedgefield Country Club Greensboro, North Carolina Par 70, 7,127 156 runners, top 70 and ties play weekend. They’ve been playing this contest since 1938. It was at this course for a long time until 1976, but did not return until 2008. Only consider course history from 2008 on. Tour Cards and the FedEx Cup playoffs are on the line this weekend. Top 125 earn exemption for the 2015-2016 PGA season as well as entry into the FedEx Cup playoffs, next week at The Barclays. 100 will play the Deutsche Bank Championship, 70 will play BMW with no cut, and t
  23. Coors field is in play once again today as the Padres wrap up a 3 game set in Colorado. The last two days I have recommended fading Coors for the most part, but today is a different story. Rusin and Kennedy are not the ground ball pitchers we have seen take the hill the last couple days, they are quite the opposite. Think I may go to the game tomorrow as I will have exposure to both teams' bats. I prefer the Padres side but I think the masses will too. Pitching today is Chris Sale and a bunch of other guys. He's easily the top option on the board and priced not the most expensive.
  24. In five years, I see myself celebrating the five year anniversary of today. If you’re like me then you like Daily Fantasy Sports. It’s been over four years since they took online poker from us Americans and gave us DFS instead. We all know that poker is a skill game and it’s a shame that we can’t play online poker freely in the US anymore, but things are what they are and unless I want to move to another country, play poker in a casino, or get a job, then DFS is my best opportunity to make a living from my home office in pajamas. I finally got into DFS March of 2014 thanks to my
  25. With NBA on the horizon, the NHL is finally getting into its typical rhythm of Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday games. They leave Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays to the NBA and everybody respects NFL's Sunday. So today is Tuesday, the first day you can play daily fantasy sports after getting paid out from NFL's contests. There are 10 games on the slate and lots of good options. Many people will be playing hockey without knowing what to do and there are juicy contests across the industry. --- Qualify for the Star Fantasy Leagues $150,000 Fantasy Football Championship for as litt
