With 15 games on the slate there is a lot of ground to cover so let’s get right to it.

If you’re a cash player trying to move up in stakes, you’ll invariably notice that the competition gets tougher to beat the bigger you play, as logic would dictate. The simple reason is that you’ll face more regs, and good regs will pick the best value plays in cash far more often than recreational players.
Monday night action on DraftKings was relatively low scoring for a 12 game slate, though Nuggets vet Wilson Chandler did his best to make it happen, scoring just behind LeBron James with 64.5 points. He could be found in the winning lineups of the Power Dunk, Four Point Play and Crossover.
DraftKings has made some recent changes, the most notable one being a limit of 20 entries on a number of contests which formerly had a cap of 50-150 entries. This has a negative effect on players who mass multi enter, but overall creates softer fields and also changes game theory a bit for the larger field contests.
Monday night was quite the high scoring affair as value plays like Juancho Hernangomez helped drive up scores on DraftKings towards 400 points. He could be found in the winning lineups in the Four Point Play, Power Dunk and Thunderdome.
