New York Knicks Daily Fantasy Spin
Knicks shooting guards Evan Fournier and DaQuan Jeffries are both questionable to play in Tuesday’s game against the Bucks with non-COVID illnesses. Fournier has only played in one game this season, while Jeffries has seen action in 7 contests this year.
New York power forward Julius Randle did a little bit of everything in his team’s 119-106 road win over Toronto on Friday. The big man out of Kentucky had 20 points, 10 rebounds, and 9 assists while shooting 8 of 15 from the field and 3 of 3 from the free-throw line.
Milwaukee Bucks Daily Fantasy Spin
Bucks shooting guard Pat Connaughton has missed the team’s two previous games with a right ankle sprain. He’ll sit out Tuesday’s contest as well. Connaughton is averaging 5.8 points and 1.1 made three-pointers per game in 23.1 minutes per contest for Milwaukee this year.
Milwaukee rookie shooting guard Andre Jackson Jr. missed the team’s last game with a back injury. He’s questionable for Tuesday’s home clash with New York. Jackson is averaging 2.3 points per contest in 15 games of action in 2023.

Knicks vs. Bucks NBA Prediction:
The Bucks have finally started to figure some things out with their new head coach Adrian Griffin and their new point guard Damian Lillard. Milwaukee is 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games and the Bucks are fourth in the NBA in offensive efficiency this year. Bucks stars Giannis Antetokounmpo and Damian Lillard might have a little extra juice for this game, as the winner will advance to the final four of the NBA’s In-Season Tournament in Las Vegas later this week. The Bucks are 27-23-3 ATS as a home favorite since the start of last season, and they’re an NBA-best 16-8-2 ATS with the rest disadvantage since the beginning of last year. I like Giannis and the Bucks to win and cover at home on Tuesday night.
