NBA DraftKings & FanDuel DFS Primer: Thursday (12/8)

That Wednesday card was wild. We had 11 games in total, but it’s leaving us with a small slate here. We have just three games, but it should be a fun slate. We have two great matchups between four contenders and the two worst defenses in the NBA facing off in the other outing. With that in mind, let’s look at the schedule and odds!

That number should be easy to reach against San Antonio, who sit dead last in both points allowed and defensive efficiency.
