Cash Games and 50/50 Plays
In cash games, should you pick Brady? Absolutely. He’s “chalk”—DFS slang for a favorite player—and that makes the Patriots quarterback invaluable during cash games.
Here’s why: Cash games are usually “50/50 plays” with 100 entrants, meaning all the winnings are split between the 50 best gamblers in the pool. It doesn’t matter if you come in first or 49th—you’ll walk away with the same amount of cash.
So with a 50/50 roster, all you need to do is beat the average. Don’t try to out- fox your opponents; focus on fielding the team that’s most likely to score well.
Bottom line: In cash games, mainstream teams will win you money.Back to top
