How to Win Money Playing Daily Fantasy Sports

If you are like many readers of the Gambling911.com website and DFS911.com (coming soon), you might be asking yourself: “How can I make money playing daily fantasy sports”?

Well, it’s easier than you might think and doesn’t necessarily incorporate a whole lot of time provided you know where to gather the right information.

Check Out Gambling911.com Daily Fantasy Strategies – Found here we gather all the information critical in helping you to make money playing daily fantasy NBA, Football, Baseball and more.

Which players are hot, which are not, which have performed especially well in the past versus an upcoming opponent, how teams are performing versus a particular position as well as the current daily fantasy salaries.  This information is always improving. 

As folks involved in the online gambling sector, Gambling911.com features data that incorporates a gambling component like no other site in the sector.  These include such things as totals and Against The Spread (ATS) performance, which can sometimes provide better insight into likely minutes (i.e. based on the total OVER/UNDER wagering number posted) or if a team that might otherwise be viewed as a “blowout” candidate may actually have covered the spread more often against a particular opponent.  

Find the Best Prices – Just like with sports betting, one should always seek out the best price value for a particular player.  Unlike sports betting, however, daily fantasy sports value is typically greater than the half point or one-point differences that rarely matter in the end anyway. 

Some examples of these price differences include red hot Sacramento center DeMarcus Cousins.  He is priced at $10500 at FanDuel and $9500 at DraftKings.  That’s a $1000 difference.  At DraftKings, Cousins really only needs to accumulate around 38 fantasy points to make value compared to 42 at FanDuel.

Play at Sites With Fewer People – The daily fantasy sports industry is evolving like no other business sector at this time.  Currently there are the “Haves” (DraftKings and FanDuel) and the “Have Nots” (pretty much everyone else).  By that we mean, few if any DFS sites can match the liquidity (player volume) of a DraftKings or FanDuel.  That means less money to be had in contests.  It also means better opportunity to win. 

As such, it is prudent to locate daily fantasy sports sites that encompass a decent enough player base to offer attractive cashouts while shying away from those sites where it is more difficult to win anything by virtue of the shear numbers playing, not to mention the presence of so-called "professionals".  Regardless, you should consider maintaining accounts at the Big Two as both sites offer an advanced platform and unique contests.  If nothing else, FanDuel and DraftKings provide an excellent opportunity for one to hone their skills.

Research is King – Sure Gambling911.com does a lot of the leg work for you, we just can’t do it all.  Look for other sites and stats information in order to gain a strategic edge.  Pay special attention to situations in which key starters suddenly must sit out of games.  This opens up opportunities for other starters and bench players alike each of whom have current prices not yet reflecting the potential minute increase.

Participate in Conferences, Trade Shows and Workshops – The upcoming Daily Fantasy Sports Expo in Miami Beach is turning into a monster of an event. Network with the best in the business, attend workshops that help one to gain a better grasp of daily fantasy sports.  Just as the online bookmakers and poker sites utilized talents of individual players to help build and promote their respective businesses, you too could some day become a daily fantasy sports expert or consultant.  And what better way to immerse yourself into this explosive industry than by taking part in a precedent-setting event such as this.  Did we mention it’s being held in South Beach?
