    he pitched in game 1 of a double header today. Took twins under of 3.

    Cleveland won 3-1.

    DAL Cowboys +3 at LAC
    DEN Broncos -6 at Jacksonville
    BUF Bills -3 at Miami

    Arkansas St +16½ at Washington
    Florida State +6 at Wake Forest

    I didn't intend to bet on five road teams when I started picking out some games but i guess that's what i ended up with. I think LAC's defense is possibly worse than Dallas' and I expect Dak and Zeke to have a big day. I don't think Lawrence has a fun day versus that Denver defense. And I just can't see Buffalo starting 0-2 on the year against two AFC teams.

    Washington has scored just 17 points all season and Arkansas State has put up 50 and 40 in their two games. I think UW wins but I don't think they can cover unless they really shut down this offense all game and don't turn the ball over. No idea what to expect with FSU-WF but think there's maybe some value in an 0-2 team with more talent than a 2-0 team who has beat up on two FCS teams.

    there are some intriguing O/Us that i may bet in the NFL closer to the weekend but i'm trying to keep my total bets to ~5/weekend

    Allen has always put up huge numbers against Miami. Definitely betting his props.

    https://www.statmuse.com/nfl/ask/josh-allen-career-stats-vs-dolphins
    Josh Allen has a passer rating of 114.3 with 1,552 yards, 17 touchdowns and 4 interceptions in 6 games versus the Dolphins in his career.

    He is also 5-1 against them with his only loss coming on this dropped TD

    Last SNF, I took Kupp to have two Touchdowns. He had one and also got tackled on the 1.

    mnf, I took jacobs to have two TDs. It hit

    today I have McLaurin two TDs. He already got his first. +1600

    this bet is fun.

    The short version: The more entries in a contest the more "out there" you have to be and you have to stack (ie Cousins+Thielen)

    If you want any chance at a big prize you have to go a little off the board here. Be smart and go with a heavy-volume stack (Carr+Waller, Dalton+Robinson, etc)

    If you are new to DFS, you should be able to filter contest by Beginner which I highly recommend. It will remove all contests entered by people who have won over a certain amount and played over a certain amount of contests. I don't remember the numbers for each but will make your competition much easier.

    From there, I'd play 50/50 contests. You can only double your money but will hep you learn how to build lineups that are in the top half of the field. If you go straight into GPPs (large contests, large payouts), you'll lose your money.

    As far as advice, i follow a decent number of people on twitter but a lot of people want you to pay them. Reddit has an active DFS community and you'll get tips and conversations on line up structure. Fantasy Labs does a weekly break down I also read.
