Every day, we will share the best player projection picks for PrizePicks and Underdog Fantasy based on our simulations. These two sites are pick’em-based sites that require you to combine multiple picks to win cash payouts.
Our top picks for the day are based on play-by-play simulations to determine the chances of a pick succeeding. Additionally, we’ve eliminated scenarios where injuries could affect the results.
The table will update about four times per day between 2:00 p.m. ET and 6:30 p.m. ET. We’ll keep track of the success rate of our top three plays and update you on how we did with our recommended bets.
Since the projections will change throughout the day, we’ll use the final update at 6:30 p.m. ET for grading.
The table below will include both NBA picks for PrizePicks and Underdog Fantasy, along with NHL picks on PrizePicks.
Notable NBA DFS Spots Tuesday Night
- Luka Doncic is the best pay-up option on this 8-game slate due to his matchup against the Jazz. Doncic is averaging 38.3 points over his last three games, and the Mavericks heavily rely on him.
- Tyus Jones remains cheap on DraftKings and overpriced on FanDuel despite playing without Ja Morant this season. He has been one of the best assist-to-turnover ratios in the NBA. In 10 games without Morant, Jones is averaging 19.4 points, 8.1 assists, and over 40 DraftKings points per game. Jones will get the luxury of playing against the Lakers, who rank second in pace. Jones has the highest Projected Plus/Minus on the slate.
- Giannis Antetokounmpo is the most expensive player on both DraftKings and FanDuel and has the highest ceiling in our NBA Model. The Bucks may be without Jrue Holiday, who has a questionable status, which will give Giannis a significant boost. Giannis is the league leader in usage rate and is top five in both points and rebounds, while shooting 53.8% from the field.
- Editors note: Giannis (illness) has been ruled out Tuesday.
- Anthony Davis has a great chance to lead the Lakers to the postseason, as they are 12 games sans LeBron James. He is averaging 29.6 points, 14.6 rebounds, and 57.5 DraftKings points per game while shooting 52.3% and has the highest ceiling over Joel Embiid. He played well against the Grizzlies last Tuesday and is a good matchup against the Grizzlies as they rank 28th in rebounding percentage.
