Quest For $1000 – Day 24 – Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks – DraftKings Picks

Our 3rd night of basketball and we finished in the top 20% in all our pools. We thank the heavens we didn’t have Russell Westbrook. Heartbreaking for OKC fans. But for us in daily fantasy basketball and for our picks, it was a big break. We didn’t have to worry about our night after that as he was very highly owned.

Our bankroll increased to $35.30, UP 353% from the start. Lets keep it rolling tonight. We are play another 3 x $1 50/50’s.

Remember, our picks are for cash games and cash games only. We look for value and high floors.

Derrick Rose – He had a ho hum first game and his price reflects a guy that has little upside but we think he presents a high floor and has the ability to sprinkle everywhere in the boxscore for some upsidde with more minutes played.

Eric Bledsoe – will be in a fast paced game and he’s their main man. Great price. High floor. Can get a double double. Game one could have been bigger if not for double technical.

CJ Miles –  Low salary and takes tons of shots. If he sinks any today it will be a monster day. High floor for his price with huge upside.

Luis Scola – Had a solid first game and his price remains low. There is no true number one guy for scoring on this team and we think he will continue to get shots. With an uptick in minutes, he could continue to fill up the  score sheet.

Deandre Jordan – Great Price. Look for a bounce back game. High Floor due to rebounds and blocks.

Tony Parker – this game should be a high scoring affair and he should be on the court for most of the game. Good price for a high floor player with big upside if he gets hot.

Tim Duncan – Mr. Reliable. This game will be faced paced and he should benefit with more rebound opportunities.

Ed Davis – The Lakers are lost and Ed Davis will get his chance to play as he is great off the bench. He’s like the JYD. His price is low enough to accept a bad game from him, but we think the Lakers will enjoy a guy that plays as hard as he does.

WGC HSBC Champions 2014 – Golf Preview & Picks – Daily Fantasy Golf Picks

Where: Shanghai China
Course: Sheshan Golf Club
Par/yardage: Par 72/7266 Yards
Format: 72-hole stroke play (no cut)
Defending Champion: Dustin Johnson

The HSBC Champions is in its 10th year and its sixth as a World Golf Championships event.  Sheshan International GC (West), 7,266 yards, par 72. Set amid 1,000-year-old gingko trees, manmade waterways and a natural quarry, the Nelson & Haworth design returns as host after a one-year absence when the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions went to Mission Hills. Sheshan International opened in 2004 as the Shanghai region’s first golf club and remains one of its most exclusive. Tiger Woods once called the layout “the crowning jewel of all of Asian golf.” To create the layout’s drastic elevation changes, work crews reportedly moved more than 2 million cubic yards of earth.

When we know the exact field, we’ll cut down our list here with past performances. Please be patient as there are tons of names. We will update by tomorrow morning.

The Sanderson Farm Championship at the Annandale Golf Club, in Madison, was once the Viking Classic and many other strange names. It was also a tournament than ran at the same time as the British Open. It was a good pay cheque for some of the lower level golfers on tour, but now it’s got a winter spot on Tour. I’ll post the field later today when it comes out, but I think the field will be the best this tournament has seen in a long time.

Breeders Cup 2014 – Saturday Picks By The Shanooner

I can’t wait for Saturday. The Breeders Cup is one of my favorite days of the year. I’ve been doing my best to keep on top of the track and horses all year and for my Breeders Cup Picks, I’ve made some little notes for you below.

First. The speed bias is a huge factor on the dirt.  Second, closers will rule the turf, in particular European closers. Third, there was a big scratch out of the Juvenile. American Pharoh is out….he was pegged to take them around by himself as the huge favourite. Fourth, the only race on the turf that has a chance of holding together up front is the turf sprint and I believe that those who run near the lead can hang on.

Here are the picks.  

Juvenile Fillies-

  • Majestic Presence
  • Angela Ranee
  • By the Moon
  • Feathered

Filly & Mare Turf

Wide open event and I’m against Dank.

  • Just the Judge
  • Irish Mission
  • Stephanies Kitten
  • Abaco

Filly & Mare Sprint

  • Artemis Agrotera
  • Judy the Beauty
  • Little Alexis
  • Leigh Court

Turf Sprint

  • Bobby’s Kitten
  • Tightend Touchdown
  • Undrafted
  • Something Extra

Juvenile

  • Upstart
  • Daredevil
  • Carpe Diem
  • One Lucky Dam

Turf

  • Telescope
  • Flintshire
  • Brown Panther

Sprint

  • Secret Circle
  • Rich Tapestry
  • Private Zone
  • Big Macher

Turf Mile

  • Toronado

Quest For $1000 – Day 23 A – Daily Fantasy Football Picks – Week 9 – DraftKings Cash Game Ticket – UPDATE! UPDATE 2!

Two Quest For $1000 Posts in the same day? Yes. We are truly amazing over here at Best Daily Fantasy Site. It’s our daily fantasy football picks cash game ticket for DraftKings. We’re winners now in 7 of our 8 cash game weeks on DraftKings and we look to keep that going. This week, we’ll be playing 6 x $1 50/50’s.

Before we continue, lets just say that last week was crazy. The amount of scoring from top players was off a chart and this week, the salaries have gone through the roof on the Receiver front. With many quality receivers on a bye or playing on Thursday, it was slim pickings ate Receiver this week and creating a stacked roster was near impossible. Our roster could change as we do tweak it constantly, all the way up to game time and it’s very likely it will happen again. Right now, we’re under the assumption that Aj Green and Giovani Bernard will not be playing this week, so our current roster reflects that, but this and many other things could change by Sunday, so keep on coming back and we’ll keep you posted.

Our daily fantasy football picks for DraftKings are below.

IF YOU LIKE OUR PICKS, CREATE A ROSTER AT DRAFTKINGS! WIN CASH! PLAY NOW!

Colin Kaepernick

He’s playing the Rams at home and they are the team he vandalized earlier in the year on his way to his highest point total. He has a very high floor and for $7000, we’ll take him with little downside.

Le’Veon Bell

Initially we had Marshawn Lynch here, and we think most will, but we really don’t like how Lynch doesn’t catch many balls. Bell is still underpriced and is just too reliable. Imagine if he actually gets a touchdown.  He;s our favourite daily fantasy football player this year.

Andre Ellington

Le’veon Bell Lite. He runs and catches so many balls that he quickly pays for himself without the need of a touchdown.  At 5900, he’s a steal in our opinion. A very high floor with upside.

Andre Johnson

This is our 3rd week in a row with Andre Johnson in our lineup. He does the same thing every week and we’re just fine with that. We expect the same old this week with some upside against a horrible defence. One of these weeks he’ll get 100 yards or a TD, so this week could be that week, but it’s not needed. he up against some bad cornerbacks this week.

Steve Smith Sr.

He’s been quiet the last 2 weeks even though he’s still been getting targets. This week he faces a lousy secondary in Pittsburgh. He should get back to the 6 catch range as he’s getting 9-10 targets and have the ability to get 100 yards and a td. He’s a high floor with a high ceiling this week.

Mohamed Sanu

This pick is dependent on the health of AJ Green. If Green isn’t playing, Sanu will get all the targets once again and he’s playing an atrocious Jacksonville defence. Even Andy Dalton can’t screw this one up? He’ll have plenty of chance to pick up catches/yards and like the others, might not need a touchdown to earn his keep.

Julius Thomas

We did everything to try and fit Gronkowski into this spot but couldn’t figure out a way to get all the other pieces we liked. It’s a tough week. So we took Julius Thomas in a high over under. He hasn’t been getting tons of target s and is touch down dependent, however, New England stink against tight Ends, and we think this gives him a chance to double his targets this week. This is our riskiest play in our opinion.

Jeremy Hill

Like Sanu, Hill will remain here as long as we think or know that Giovani Bernard is not playing. He’s facing Jacksonville and should get all running back duties, including pass catching which he does quite well. At $4000, he has a high floor with the potential of having a monster day.

VIKINGS

They’re averaging over 3 sacks and 1. turnovers a game. Can Colt Mccoy play brilliantly twice in a row? He’s Colt Mccoy? We don’t think so. We like them to get us between 6-10 fantasy points this week.

UPDATE!! with AJ Green playing, we removed Sanu from our lineup. We switched him to Reuben Randle. He’s getting targets and the Giants game is a big over/under 50.5. Vegas thinks points will be scored and the Giants will need to Pass to catch up.

With that change, we then wanted to somehow get Gronk into our lineup, so we moved off Le’veon Bell (which really made us upset because we love him) and moved to Ronnie Hillman. The weather isn’t looking so hot in Foxboro and it will be some running and short passing. In the history of these matches, Bellichek chose to stop Manning and let the running game run wild. So we think Hillman will have a good chance at a big day. The thing we want most are few catches and we think, due to the weather, this should easily happen. Some nice little dump offs. He can earn his value without a td. It’s also the highest over under of the week, so he has tremendous upside.

Then we switched off Julius Thomas and moved to Gronkowski. We aren’t fans of the Thomas downside, even though he’s cheap. We just wanted the tried and true Gronkowski. He’ll be a security blanket all day for Brady and we know he’ll get his targets.

We’ve switched our defence from the Vikings to the Chiefs. They do a good job at getting to the Qb and this week they’re going up against a team in real disarray. The Qb position is in shambles and they could feast on this. We like a few sacks here, and if Vick is playing, multiple fumble recovery opportunities.

UPDATE 2! Vontae Davis is playing, so we’re of Randle. We are moving AJ Green into that spot as he’s healthy with a good matchup. To make room for this, we moved off Hillman to Lesean Mccoy. They have the capability of the same game. Same upside and downside. Then we also moved off the Chiefs, which made us sad, but it was a must to get the receiver we wanted. So now we’re on the Browns at home versus the lowly Buccaneers. Not a bad consolation prize.

Quest For $1000 – Day 23 – Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks – DraftKings – UPDATED!

It was a nail biter last night, right until the end and thankfully we pulled it out in all 3 contests after Westbrook and Co. were pulled from the game with over 2 minutes left in the blowout.  We had Eric Bledsoe leave the game with 2 technicals in the 3rd and need the daily fantasy basketball gods to pay us back……. and they did.

This brings our grand total to $32.90, up 329%. We’re moving up nicely. Tonight we’re going to play 3x $1 50/50’s again. Onwards and upwards.

Some thoughts on daily fantasy basketball and our picks as we’re new to this sport after comfortably handling football. Some nights you’re gonna get screwed, even in cash games, with foul trouble, double technicals and players being removed due to blowouts. It’s going to happen here and there and usually there’s no way to avoid it. Another note, The Lakers stink. They can’t score and they can’t play defense. It will be the worst Lakers team of all time.

Now onto our show. Here’s our daily fantasy basketball picks for our quest for $1000 on Thursday October 30th 2014.

IF YOU LIKE OUR PICKS, PLAY THEM ON DRAFTKINGS. WIN CASH! PLAY NOW!

Chris Paul – His game is a high over under. Has triple double ability and gets tons of steals.

Evan Fournier – Cheap guy on the board and starting. Gets 10 shots a game. A high floor.

Kyle Singler- Cheapest guy on the board. When getting starters minutes, he easily reaches his value.

Thaddeus Young – Many have him as a GPP play, we like him in cash games. He the primary scorer on the team and fills up the stat sheet. Can get a double double here and there.

Steven Adams – Here’s our cheap center. Has a tough matchup against the Clippers but think he’ll produce enough points to pay off his low salary. We’ll be happy with 7 points, 7 rebounds and a block.

Russell Westbrook – Took tons of shots last night and we expect the same today.

Blake Griffin – Average 45 points against OKC last year and we don’t see why he won’t do the same tonight. As consistent as they come.

K. Caldwell Pope – He’s a 3600 buck starter and he’s a chucker. Can he be worse than the 3-19 the other day? has a high floor with extreme upside.

UPDATE!!!

We are putting Lebron in as he’s going to have a big night. So WestBrook, Griffin, Adams are OUT.

IN: Lebron, Marcin Gortat, , Nikola Pekovic.

Another fear we have is the blowout game tonight. so removing WestBrook and Griffin for Lebron, lessens our exposure to players in that game. We think the Lebron game will be a blow out but he’ll still do tons of damage.

Breeders Cup 2014 – Friday Picks By The Shanooner

The Breeders Cup kicks off on Friday with ladies day and our Trusty Correspondent, The Shanooner was begging to do a piece on the Breeders Cup 2014 Picks. So we agreed because we’re horse racing fans and we know that the Shanooner really knows his stuff. We really hope that the daily fantasy industry will create a points system for horse racing one day, but for now, we just hope. Enjoy the picks and comments below.

The Shanooners Breeders Cup Picks 2014 – Friday – Ladies Day

i believe any multi race pick strategy must include the horses listed below.. How you use them within each individual race is up to you, but value (Price) is what you are looking for.

Juvenile Fillies Turf

Qualify (Ire)- I worry that this horse is just much much better making spreading multi race wagers here a waste.

Sunset Glow- After two synthetic runs stretches out and goes back to the turf. class is not the issue …the distance is.

Osaila (Ire)- Hard to leave out a graded stakes winner at Ascot therefore must be left in the mix.

Lady Zuzu – Paid over 1 million for her. Broke maiden last time out by 6 1\4 lengths. She is light on the beyer side but maybe she is ready to break out.

Dirt Mile

I want horses who can be up front…
Goldencents – The favourite …..single him at your own risk. Some handicappers will.

Pants On Fire- Can be up close and can run. Could offer nice value.

Fed Biz- I am kind of against him repeating his last performance because I know he should not make the lead uncontested, but if the above two happen to get a bad start he could inherit the lead and be dangerous.

Based on the way the track is playing, it’s hard to imagine someone other than these three.

Juvenile Turf

War Envoy – I Feel like this is the single…if you were so inclined to use a single in multi race wagers. But just in case…..

Hootenanny – Horses like this are tough to handicap.. but looks good for great connections and seems to hold a speed edge over every other North American horse in the field.

Commemorative (GB) – See above comment.

Distaff
Back to the dirt that means back to speed.

Belle Gallantey – Sentimental pick and has the speed to be close.

Iotapa – Beaten by Tiz Midnight last time but still feel this is a dangerous dangerous horse. Will be upfront and ready to pounce.

Close Hatches – Does she have a rebound run in her?…She surely has the speed to stay close.

Tiz Midnight – Baffert enters a speedy one who finished a game second in the Grade 1 Zenyatta last time out. Definite shot.

The one closer that may pick up ALL the pieces in this speedy contest is…

Untapable- Rosie could move this one into a perfect spot at just the right time. Thats what makes her one of the best. Has speed figures at the distance that will beat these. Can she close into the bias?

Quest For $1000 – Day 22 – Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks – DraftKings – UPDATED!

We split our 2 50/50’s last night, which knocked our total dow 20 cents to $30.50. Tonight we get back on the horse and play 3 x $1 50/50’s for daily fantasy basketball on DraftKings.

We’ve got a roster of expensive and cheap players. Trying to take advantage of cheap starters playing Philadelphia, we have Donald Sloan and CJ Miles. We like cheap starters that play against the up tempo Houston Rockets, so more opportunity for Alec Burks. He may be a little banged up but we like taking Lamarcus Aldridge as he just does what he does. The Denver Defense stinks against centers, so we’re taking the beast that is Andre Drummond with some upside. Speaking of upside, Stephen Curry is up against the lowly Sacramento Kings. We aren’t sure if Otto Porter is starting, but regardless, we still like him to out point his $3000 salary. If he starts, he’s golden. And rounding out our roster is Jonas Valanciunas. He’s only getting better and we like this matchup for him. Lowry says they intend to get him involved early. He has a high floor and tremendous upside.

UPDATE!

In Wade, Sullinger, Westbrook, Bledsoe. OUT Burks, Aldridge, Curry Valancunias.

Top Weekly’s Breeders Cup Commentary – Free Special Edition

We don’t sway from our regular sports here, but sometimes when a special event comes a knocking and we have time, we’ll share some thoughts on horse racing, like the Breeders Cup from sunny Santa Anita. Below is the Friday Card with a handful of our collective thoughts. We hope you like our Breeders Cup Picks, brought to you by our Special Correspondent, Top Weekly.

Friday Card- Juvenile Fillies Turf, Dirt Mile, Juvenile Turf, Distaff

I’ve been away for a while.  Trying to get a handle on all these horses is time consuming.  Here is what I can report to you. The  dirt track at Santa Anita had a makeover. The purpose of it was to get less dirt kicked up into trailing horses faces. (horses don’t like that) and also providing better footing for the horses. In general, horsemen are in agreement,  that yes, less dirt is being kicked up. I think, however, that horsemen around the track and gamblers also wanted the surface less geared towards speed and a little “fairer”. So far, the new surface has not produced that result at all. The track is playing as fast as ever and that means speed is king. Does this mean who ever makes the lead around the first turn is going to win? No. But certainly you would like to see your horse sitting no more than 3 or 4 lengths from the lead. That means deep closers have their hands or hoofs full.  Here are some recent track statistics.  From October 4-18th, 75% of dirt sprints were won by a horse within 1 length of the lead at the first call. Rich Tapestry recently ran a 1:07.59 for 6 furlongs!  Eleven of twelve dirt races at 1 mile were won by horses forwardly placed from the bell. That is why Goldencents was made a 6 to 5 favourite on his home track, at the mile distance. Its pretty much consensus amongst handicappers that this is a can’t miss. He his supposed to wire this field with ease. Even without the bias he would be the favourite.  My feeling? Something about everyone loving him smells fishy.

You can not talk about the Breeders Cup without bringing up the European invasion. They are plentiful and they are formidable. Both days the turf races will be dominated by the Euros. Their time form ratings are far superior to their North American foes. For example. In the Juvenile Fillies Turf, Lady Eli is considered one of North Americas best but has never had a Beyer number higher that 78. Qualify (one of many in  the filed boasts a time form rating of 105 and 102 in her last 2 tries. For those who don’t know….thats a huge difference and massive mismatch. The other Euros in the race are, Osila, Sivoliere, Prize Exhibit and War Alert. Of the North American Horses, I like Sunset Glow as a wild card….vastly improved since the spring, Grade 1 tested, and back on a surface she should like.  In fact I really like this horse i think?  In the Juvenile Turf, there are only 4 horses worth mentioning (a lot of euros) Aktabantay Commemorative, Hootenanny, and War Envoy. I strongly believe this race is won by one of these boys.

The Distaff  is a tough race to handicap. We know speed is likely to be a major factor and this race has a bunch of players who will be sent upfront early. Belle Gallantey, Close Hatches, Iotopa, Ria Antonia,  and Tiz Midnight are all projected to scramble for the front. Does this open things up for Untapable or Don’t Tell Sophia?  Or do we believe and trust the bias?  Its a tough call because as a handicapper we obviously see the potential for the race to totally breakdown.  One entry in the Distaff, Belle Gallantey is in the middle of one of the most unbelievable turnarounds by a horse I’ve ever seen. He has run 43 times! Thats not even the most amazing part. For two years this horse had Beyer numbers usually in the 60’s,  until Rudy Rodriguez claimed him on November 13, 2013. That day he ran a 61 in an optional 16k sprint. In his first race for Rudy( December, 19, 2013) he ran a 64. It was a non winners of 3, 35k claiming sprint. Rudy then stretched him out seven times in a row. Here is how Belle Gallantey responded. Alllowance  NW1X  85, finished 1st. Allowance 12500( meaning he has been entered for this very low tag recently ) he ran a 95 and won. Next up was an optional claiming 62k NW2X, he ran a 90 and won by 3 lengths. Next was a Grade 1! …I repeat, a Grade 1! He finished 5th by a length and ran a 100. Another Grade 1 followed where he ran a 99 and won! Following a dull effort over a sloppy track, he entered another Grade 1 race, her last prep before Fridays Distaff . Belle ran a 103 and won by over 8 lengths. Wow! Nice claim Rudy.
