Vegas Projected Point Totals

We've color coded the over / under to make it easy to find games with high and low scores projected. Games in green have good pace and are one's to focus on. Games in yellow could make for some good contrarian plays, especially if there's a late scratch or injury reported. Totals in red should be avoided, these will be slow paced games involving underperforming teams.

Avoiding Blowouts

A double digit spread can be a curse for NBA Daily Fantasy, as teams will often sit out their stars in the fouth quarter if they've built up a huge lead. Any game with a -10 or higher spread is one to do more research on, especially if there's been recent injuries on the team. Teams won't take the risk when they can send in someone off the bench, which will cost you crucial minutes and fantasy points.
