The “Billy Beane” Approach MLB: FanDuel & DraftKings

By: Keith Hall on July 28, 2015

I am a baseball nut.  Hardcore, in my blood, bleed purple and silver.  I have been playing since I was 3 years old.  I still play now at 30.  There are a group of guys that I play with that are of the same mold as myself.  For us, we live and die by the every waking moves our teams make.  There aren’t a lot people like us in Oklahoma.  What makes it even better is we are all “fans” of different teams.  Not the casual type either, but the type that bleed our team colors.  For years now, being… Read More »

Defining Your Style

By: Keith Hall on July 27, 2015

There are many types of players in the DFS industry.  Figuring out what type you are isn’t always easy.  Or cheap.  The bad part about it is that when you are watching any MLB game, you see the advertising.  What those commercials are selling is the idea and possibility of turning a small amount of money, into a five figure payday.  This is the dream all of us have.  Making a lot of money playing DFS.  Let’s be realistic though, even though it can happen, the likely of it happening are very slim.  There is nothing wrong with still chasing… Read More »

Don’t be THAT Guy! MLB: FanDuel & DraftKings

By: Keith Hall on July 21, 2015

Have you ever had that friend that sits there and pours out his problems to you about everything?  His wife is mad at him for not taking out the trash.  His kids don’t listen and have decided to make their walls in their rooms a coloring book.  His boss can’t understand how the numbers aren’t adding up and wants him to stay late and finish reworking the spreadsheet to make sure.  It seems no matter what is going on, nothing is in his favor.  You listen, as all good friends should, and you engage in communication and give advice.  Have… Read More »

Friday’s Top Value MLB FanDuel & DraftKings

By: Keith Hall on July 17, 2015

DFS is back!  It has been nearly a week for myself since I typically don’t play on the weekends.  So I am ready.  Refreshed, revitalized, and ready to navigate through the wave of value that is sure to open up and present itself to us this afternoon. I used the All-Star Break to look at different ways I can improve my game.  When you have a couple days to step back and analyze yourself, you tend to notice some things that you might overlook when you get into the day to day routine.  For me, I noticed a couple things… Read More »

Pick Your Spots MLB FanDuel & DraftKings

By: Keith Hall on July 7, 2015

There are those days in the MLB season where we have choices to make.  I’m not just talking about the choice between the top two pitchers of the day in cash games, or which games to load up hitters from.  I’m talking about the days where we have realistically five to six good starting pitchers, another handful of teams that are in good offensive spots, a good offensive team getting no love from Vegas in a good match-up, a bad team hitting the ball very well in the last two weeks, AND Coors Field.  Those days are where we can… Read More »

Developing Consistency

By: Keith Hall on July 6, 2015

One of the hardest things to accomplish in DFS is consistency.  There are a number of different situations and scenarios that make it very difficult to be consistent in DFS.  Most of the time, if you can accomplish a 60-65% success rate in cash games then your doing quite well.  That number does not come lightly at all.  I think DFS most accurately resembles the MLB season.  If you win a baseball game 60% of the time, you are then finding yourself in the playoffs.  Currently, there is only one team, the St. Louis Cardinals, that is playing above the… Read More »

Eating up Value MLB FanDuel & DraftKings

By: Keith Hall on June 30, 2015

What a great time to be apart of the DFS Industry.  Just looking around on the different sites that are available to play on there are a ton of ways to attack MLB.  Obviously the two most popular plays will always be H2H games and GPP’s, but if you haven’t noticed, FanDuel and DraftKings have started to roll other types of contests as well.  There are survivor tournaments that kicked off yesterday on DraftKings, and today, FanDuel released it’s Bracket Championship.  The landscape of these contests change depending on a lot of different aspects.  The main of course being who… Read More »

Frantic Friday Fun FanDuel & DraftKings

By: Keith Hall on June 26, 2015

Friday’s are the busiest day for the DFS industry.  They usually have the larger tournaments, with more entries, for more money.  Which means if you love to sweat GPP’s along with your cash games like myself, you have to be willing to do what nobody else is willing to do in order to profit, or turning Chaos into Cash.  Sometimes it means that you have to uncomfortably fade that one pitcher that is in a can’t lose scenario because he will be so highly owned, you can’t capitalize of him having a good performance.  Which is what I will be… Read More »

Pick of the Litter FanDuel & DraftKings

By: Keith Hall on June 24, 2015

Hope everyone is enjoying the early slate of games.  There are only 10 games tonight, so the ownership percentages will be a little higher on some players than where they normally are with a full schedule of games.  This is one thing to always keep in mind when building lineups, especially for tournaments.  Looking at the pitching match ups tonight there isn’t a lot to be too excited about.  Vegas has the Colorado game at 11, so when building your teams, like every night when Coors is in play, you need to make sure to have some exposure.  There are… Read More »
