What is EV? A lot of people in DFS think they know the answer…and don’t realize that they’re looking at things all wrong! Before we can learn to take advantage of the edges available to us, we have to first understand exactly what those edges are.
Mike dives into the concepts behind going all-in on a player, across all your rosters :: when it’s advisable to do this // why it’s sometimes advisable to do this // and how doing this properly/successfully can significantly increase your chances of a first-place finish.
When picking players, you have to be willing to “be wrong on the timing.” This willingness can go a long way toward improving your EV over time :: being willing to roster a player before they’ve shown the field what they can do // or being willing to roster a player after they’ve seemingly shown the field they cannot be trusted.
Mike dives into a couple of the strategies/approaches he uses in order to ensure his EV is maximized, from a standpoint of both his “play” and his “mindset/approach,” while helping you grasp a key area of bankroll management and roster construction in which so many players fall short.
DFS is all about “finding and hammering edges.” In this lesson, Mike takes a look at what it means to “schedule cupcakes” — creating for yourself some of the biggest boosts to your expected value over time.
How can you continue to improve your expected value and your long-term ROI throughout the entire year? Mike dives into three approaches that have helped him immensely.
Put your stamp on the slate! Understand what you are building, and why you are building it in order to maximize your expected value throughout your DFS career.
Another excellent course from MJohnson86! This ties in perfectly with his other course Building a sharper player pool: Checking the boxes!
Definitely given me more to think about regarding my own play, to try maximize the small edges that can have a big impact over a longer time period. And thanks for the tip regarding The Special, definitely going to check that out once its available!
MJohnson86 is a great addition to the team for 2021, I cant wait to read more from him!
Yo MJohnson86! Welcome to the Fam, FAM! Or rather thanks for introducing yourself to us (seems like you been a member, but are now a contributor).
Anyways, you have broken down what has been discussed since OWS’s inception into easily digestable and actionable steps. I have tried to implement the strategies myself, but you’ve laid it out in such a way that is highly replicable for our process. Things that I have been trying to do for years are clicking in my brain! You’ve already done it…thanks for sharing!
