Welcome everyone to your Run Pure Sports – NBA DFS Daily Breakdown. Today we will be previewing Tuesday’s 5-game slate in the NBA. The idea of this article will be to give you a quick glance at the games each day and provide the overnight point spreads, game and team totals along with overnight injury news and potential DFS targets.

BUCKS (113.5) +1.5, 228.5 vs 76ERS (115)

The Bucks (46-28) travel to Philly to face the 76ers (46-28). MIlwaukee is 1-4 in their last 5 games against the spread, while the 76ers are 3-2 in their last 5 games against the spread. This game is very important for both teams as they are tied for the 2 seed with Boston in the East while only 1 game behind the 1 seed Heat. The Bucks get eveyone back for this crucial game. Giannis is the top spend on the slate tonight. I have no interest in paying 7.8K for Middleton or 8.7K for Jrue in this spot. Brook Lopez is a fine value option at 4.2K. Think I’ll stay away from the other value pieces for the Bucks. On the other side, Joel Embiid is the 2nd best spend on the slate IMO. I dont hate stacking both of the studs here either. Harden is OK i guess, but he has had only 1 ceiling game recently. Tyrese Maxey is my only other interest from the Sixers as the Bucks give up a ton of three pointers.

Milwaukee – Giannis – Prob

Philly – Springer – OUT

DFS Targets

Giannis Antetokounmpo, Brook Lopez, Joel Embiid, James Harden, Tyrese Maxey


BULLS (113.5) -4, 223 vs WIZARDS (109.5)

The Bulls (43-32) head to Washington to take on the Wizards (32-42). Chicago is 2-3 in their last 5 games against the spread, while the Wizards are 3-2 in their last 5 games against the spread. Draftkings is just begging you to play the 3 studs from Chicago, DDR is 8.3K, Lavine is 8.2K and Vucevic is 8K. All seem underpriced in this matchup and DDR is coming off a 53 DK point performance. Nikola Vucevic has the best matchup as the Wizards have given up the 3rd most FP to Centers over the last 7 games. On the Washington side, Porzingis continues to do everything for this team with a 43 and 36% usage rate of his last 2 games. He is playing around 31-32 minutes in everygame. Deni Avdija continues to be underpriced for his current role and I really like him here at 5.1K. KCP is always a boom/bust option. Tomas Satoransky should continue to get the start and is firmly in play at only 4100.

Injury News

Chicago – Ball – OUT, Kuzma – OUT, Carey – OUT

Washington – Kuzma – OUT, Carey – OUT

DFS Targets

NIkola Vucevic, DeMar DeRozan, Zach Lavine, Kristaps Porzingis, Deni Avdija, KCP, Tomas Satoransky


PISTONS (108.25) +13.5, 230 vs NETS (121.75)

Detroit (20-55) heads to Brooklyn take on the Nets (39-36). The Pistons are 4-1 in their last 5 games against the spread, while the Nets are 5-0 in their last 5 games against the spread. The Pistons arent looking to win games at this point as they shut down Jerami Grant for the season. This is a fantastic matchup for the Pistons. I cant pay the 8.8K pricetag for Cade Cunningham here though. I do have some interest in Marvin Babley, Isaiah Stewart and Killian Hayes. Hayes should get the blowout run if indeed it does blowout. Im not thrilled with KD or Kyrie in this matchup with the massive spread but I would prefer KD here if I had to pick one. Andre Drummond is in play as well.

Injury News

Detroit – Livers – OUT, Grant – OUT

Brooklyn – Simmons – OUT

DFS Targets

Marvin Bagley, Isaiah Stewart, Killian Hayes, Kevin Durant, Andre Drummond


LAKERS (102.75) +12.5, 218 vs MAVERICKS (115.25)

The Lakers (31-43) travel to Dallas to face the Mavs (46-29). LAL is 2-3 in their last 5 games against the spread while the Mavs are 2-3 in their last 5 games against the spread. The Lakers will be without LeBron in this one and while AD practiced yesterday, I dont expect him to be back for this game. This could setup Russell Westbrook to be very chalky on tonights slate. Without Lebron and Ad, Westbrick has a 34% usage rate and 1.36 FPPM. Malik Monk and Carmelo Anthony are also underpriced in this matchup with Bron or AD. Wenyen Gabriel and Austin Reaves should be a popular value options. Dont sleep on Stanley the steamer though. For Dallas, I’m not sure that I want to pay for Luka in this massive spread. I dont hate Jalen Brunson though at only 5900.

Injury News

LAL – Davis – DOUB, Howard – PROB, Lebron – DOUB

Dallas – Brown – OUT, Pinson – OUT

DFS Targets

Russell Westbrook, Malik Monk, Carmelo Anthony, Wenyen Gabriel, Austin Reaves, Dwight Howard, Luka Doncic, Jalen Brunson

JAZZ (108) +1, 217 vs CLIPPERS (109)

The Jazz (45-30) travel to LA to face the Clippers (36-39). Utah is 2-3 in their last 5 games against the spread while the Clippers are 2-3 in their last 5 games against the spread. Rudy Gobert missed last game and is questionable for this one. Thats a big piece of news as he is only 7300 on DK. Donovan Mitchell would be a contrarian option on this slate and his price is down to only 8700. If Gobert sits, that would bring Eric Paschall and Juan Hernangomez into play as value options. PG13 is questionable for this game and will be a game time decision. I wont have any interest in him though if he plays at 9K. If he plays thats further limits the fantasy appeal of this Clippers team as they are monitoring the minutes of Reggie Jackson, Marcus Morris and Nicolas Batum. I do like Hartenstein as a contrarian value option at 4700.

Injury News

Utah – House – QUES, Bogdanovic – QUES, Whiteside – OUT, Gobert – QUES

LAC – Preston – OUT, PG – QUES

DFS Targets

Rudy Gobert, Donovan Mitchell, Juan Hernangomez, Isaiah Hartenstein
