NBA Games to Target Tool

Our NBA Games to Target Tool has been expertly engineered to calculate the best games for DFS and fantasy players, as well as prop bettors. Use this tool with our NBA DFS Optimizer to create the best NBA daily fantasy lineups.

By using a number of factors including the pace of each team, the total projected score by sportsbooks and the defensive rating, we rank the games with the best possibility for high player performances.

This means that the matchups with the highest “Game Rating” are most likely to produce higher fantasy scores for players involved, as well as potentially go above the over/under total.

How to Use the NBA Games to Target for DFS

Using this tool is crucial for NBA DFS because it instantly allows you to see which games will see player performance above the expected projection.

Here is a breakdown of how to read the NBA Games to Target Tool for DFS:

Game Pace +/-

The game pace is calculated by looking at the pace at which both teams play. Teams that play at a higher pace see more points, rebounds and assists for players because the game is moving faster.

Games with a pace above 0 will have more action, giving players better opportunities to accumulate stats and a higher fantasy score.

Total

This is the total listed by sportsbooks for the game. Games with higher totals are expected to have more scoring, leading to higher fantasy points for the players involved.

Fantasy Points Per Minute (FP)

This calculates the expected fantasy points per minute in the game. The higher the FP/M, the more likely that the players in that game will be accumulating points, rebounds, assists and more.
