Milwaukee Bucks DFS Spin

The Bucks will be without both Bobby Portis and Pat Connaughton for Thursday’s game. Portis is dealing with a knee injury and Connaughton has a calf ailment. The two players combined to average 22.9 points per game for the Bucks this season.

Milwaukee point guard Jrue Holiday tied his career high with 40 points in the Bucks’ win over the Celtics on Tuesday night. For the season Holiday is averaging 19.5 points, 5.2 rebounds, 7.1 assists, 1.3 steals and 2.4 made three-pointers per game. Jrue Holiday could be worth the price in DFS with only three games on the slate for Thursday.

Chicago Bulls DFS Spin

The Bulls have three players designated as questionable for Thursday’s clash with the Bucks. Two of them are role players that average under 7 points per game in Goran Dragic and Derrick Jones Jr. But Chicago’s leading scorer, DeMar DeRozan, is also questionable for Thursday night’s tilt. DeRozan missed Chicago’s last game with a right quad strain and his status is up in the air. For the season DeRozan is posting 25.4 points, 4.7 rebounds, and 5.1 assists per game.

If you need a reliable big man for DFS, consider Chicago’s Nikola Vucevic. Vucevic is putting up 17.8 points and 11.5 rebounds per game while shooting 52% from the floor for the Bulls this season.

Bucks vs. Bulls NBA Prediction

Put simply, the Milwaukee Bucks are on a roll. They’ve won their last 11 games and they’ve triumphed in 13 of their last 14 contests. The winning streak began with the return of Bucks small forward Khris Middleton from a knee injury on January 23rd. When Milwaukee has their big three of Giannis Antetokounmpo, Jrue Holiday, and Khris Middleton all healthy and playing well, they’re as good as any team in the league. The Bucks have actually lost to the Bulls twice this year already, but I think that means Milwaukee will be looking for revenge on Thursday night. The line is a bit steep, but I’ll lay the points with the Bucks on the road in Chicago.
