My First NBA DFS Win

When you’ve been around for a while in the DFS industry, you get these two questions a lot:  What was your biggest win in your DFS career? What was the first big win you ever had in DFS? I’ve answered those questions many times on various podcasts, radio shows, TV shows and publications. Today, I want to tell you about a story I never get to tell.

Christmas Day NBA DFS Strategy

I think I speak for everyone when I say the Christmas Day NBA slate is the most wonderful time of the year. Not only is it extremely fun to have basketball on all day long, but there’s something uniquely fun about sweating a slate where you can watch every single play. Think about a normal NBA slate.

Our specialty PGA DFS tournament of the year is the Genesis Invitational.... Read More

Analyzing the 2019 Genesis Open

Some DFS players may not realize right away that although the 2020 Genesis Invitational is technically a new event, there has still been a PGA event played at Riviera Country Club for many years under the name Genesis Open. Even though the field was larger, we can still go back and analyze past years to see what worked and what didn’t. So this article will be examining the 2019 Genesis Open to see if we can learn anything that will be applicable in the 2020 event.
