FanDuel and The NBA Join Forces to Offer Real Money Fantasy Basketball Games

Congrats to FanDuel for signing a four year contract with the NBA to be the official site of the NBA’s real money daily fantasy games.  Well deserved for the FanDuel team.

If you haven’t checked out daily fantasy games, FanDuel registration is free and you can fund your account with PayPal or a Credit Card.  They offer football, basketball, baseball, hockey and college sports.  You can play huge field tournaments or you can play against a single opponent head to head if you like, and almost any size game in between.  They offer games for as little as $1 or as much as $1000.

Hopefully, they will be offering some free cash tournaments to celebrate this great achievement, so get signed up for free at FanDuel and get your share of the money!

2014-15 NBA Training Camps Opening

It’s October 1st and that means it’s fantasy basketball draft month.  I’m not sure how much I’m going to post this season, but for October I’ll be posting fantasy news and links to get ready for drafts.  Once the season starts, I’ll be shifting my attention toward real money FanDuel Daily Fantasy Basketball games and most of my articles will be geared toward those daily games.

Good luck this season and I hope you guys find the fantasy information here helpful.

DFS Fantasy Basketball Picks For Monday-Tuesday Combination Tournaments

The playoffs are rolling along and the number of games per night is getting smaller, which makes it difficult to have single day tournaments.  So we’ve got two games tonight and two tomorrow.  These are always difficult tournaments because of the risk of injury or illness news coming out tomorrow after your games are locked.  But if you love basketball like I do, the risk is worth it!  Here’s what I’ve got going for my Monday-Tuesday $5,000 FanDuel NBA Shot Tournament picks:

PG   Deron Williams   $6700
PG   Tony Parker   $6200
SG   Joe Johnson   $6200
SG   Dwyane Wade   $6700
SF   Trevor Ariza   $6100
SF   Nicolas Batum   $7600
PF   Nene Hilario   $6600
PF   Tim Duncan   $7900
C     Chris Bosh   $6000

I’ll probably put this team in a bunch of FanDuel 50/50 cash games also.   50/50 games are games in which the top 50% of the field gets paid.  If you can beat half the people out there, you double your entry fee.   Good luck tonight!
