The Awesemo Big Board (Express)

Everyone wants to know who the best plays on a slate are because they are going to be both the most likely to succeed and the most popular. Awesemo’s Big Board is his ranking of each player on a slate, taking into account fantasy points and value. If you roster several players with a high ranking, plus a few sleepers, and stack your lineups, you should be in a good spot.

The Optimal Lineup Percentage Tool (Premium)

The optimal lineup percentage is the newest addition to the NBA Boom/Bust Tool. It calculates the probability that each player will be in the perfect lineup, which is a great metric to compare with ownership to see who’s going over- and under-owned.

The NBA Player Props Tool (Premium)

Need to know what specific props Awesemo’s projections have as great values for the night’s NBA action? Look no further than the NBA Player Props tool, which gives out our actual projections for stats like assists, rebounds and points, and then assigns a value on each bet relative to the Vegas line.
