NBA player prop bets Stephen Curry tonight over/under points Warriors vs Trail Blazers

After the madcap run-up to lock on Friday’s slate, a six-game Saturday NBA DFS slate will hopefully be tame by comparison. This season has already reminded us the importance of staying on top of every piece of news through the day, so we know there will be moving parts and variables we don’t know about yet. Fortunately, the Awesemo team is on top of everything you need to help you make winning NBA DFS picks. We’re on top of the latest news and projections for DraftKings NBA and FanDuel NBA daily fantasy basketball contests. The guys will be coming to you live for TWO full hours, starting at 6:00 p.m. EST on the Awesemo.com YouTube channel.

First, Spags and Greg Ehrenberg bring you the best NBA DFS picks on the Deeper Dive Show for Saturday night. Then, EMac and Terry McBride count you down to lock with late news and strategy for daily fantasy basketball on DraftKings and FanDuel for 1/23.

Stream starts at 6:00 p.m. EST.

NBA Projections

Our NBA DFS projections are managed by Alex Baker and updated throughout the day as more information becomes available up until the last game tips. Projections are an integral part of a winning process for NBA DFS and using Awesemo’s projections provide you a system that’s proven to win money in tournaments over several seasons of action.

NBA Rankings

These NBA Rankings rankings for fantasy points and value are derived directly from my own fantasy NBA projections. Roster players with solid value rankings and spend most, if not all of your salary to build competitive lineups for your leagues.

NBA Boom/Bust Tool

In all DFS sports, being able to compare the strength of a player each day versus their popularity is key to success. In NBA, correlations between players are less valuable so the strength of each play can be considered individually. For each player, I calculate the standard deviation based on a variety of factors and use that to calculate the ceiling (75th-percentile performance) the floor (25th-percentile performance) and the probability that they will bust (not meeting value) or boom (value plus 10 points). Combining these metrics, you will be able to gain an edge on everyone by identifying under-owned or over-owned players.

NBA Ownership Projections

Initial ownership percentages are posted daily by 1:00 p.m. EST and are updated every two hours throughout the day with a final update occurring 30 minutes before lock. Note that last-minute injury reports will impact not only the injured players’ or their replacements’ ownership, but can affect overall roster construction and therefore, every other player on the slate.

Terry used to do other things, now he writes words on the internet. He hopes his more than 20 years’ experience in season-long and daily fantasy sports and his custom models for MLB, NBA, and NFL don't steer you too wrong when he writes columns and makes picks on Awesemo.com. A lifetime of experience keeping odd hours make Terry ideal to cover KBO baseball overnight until the world returns to normal. Most of those late night hours have been spent on the couch watching sports, T.V., and movies; just try to shut him up about any of the above. You can find his pop-culture ramblings and more on Sideaction.
