Tuesday's NBA DFS Predictions
Tuesday’s NBA Playoffs schedule features three games. Here’s our suggested Daily Fantasy plays for the three games that will be taking place tonight.
Point Guard – Wizards’ John Wall (at Toronto, 7PM ET) $9,100
Wall has been tearing it up lately, scoring at least 59 fantasy points in his last three games. That includes 61.75 fantasy points in Game 1 of the series despite going just 6 of 20 from the floor. Wall has been an assist machine while still finding ways to score points. I expect another big outing in Game 2.
Shooting Guard – Bucks’ Malcolm Brogdon (at Boston, 8PM ET) $4,300
Brogdon was on a minutes restriction prior to the playoffs, but was given 32 minutes in Game 1 and put up 27.5 fantasy points. He has a really cheap price for Game 2 and I think he should see similar playing time tonight. Brogdon is the defending Rookie of the Year and he has managed to stay in the rotation despite the trade for Bledsoe mid-season.
Small Forward – Celtics’ Jayson Tatum (vs. Milwaukee, 8PM ET) $6,300
Tatum had one of the best games for Boston in Game 1 and I think he can do something similar tonight. He has been a little streaky at times this year, but he is a stat filler. He had 45 fantasy points in Game 1 despite scoring just 19 points. He also had 10 rebounds with four assists and three steals. I like Tatum to continue to rack up numbers.
Power Forward – Pelicans’ Nikola Mirotic (at Portland, 10:30PM ET) $7,600
Mirotic hasn’t been far off from producing numbers like Anthony Davis yet is nearly $4,000 cheaper tonight. He has at least 46 fantasy points in five straight games, going over 50 in three of them. He has three straight double-doubles as well and I don’t see Portland being able to stop him, given his ability to shoot from the outside and inside.
Center – Raptors’ Serge Ibaka (vs. Washington, 7PM ET) $5,600
Ibaka put up 46 fantasy points in Game 1 and there is reason to believe he can finish well above value tonight. One concern is that he shot 8 of 11 from the field in Game 1 and I don’t know that you can expect that tonight. Still, Ibaka has put up at least 31 fantasy points in seven of his last eight games.
