Miami Heat DFS Spin

Miami shooting guard Victor Oladipo is doubtful for Saturday’s game against Milwaukee with an ankle injury. Oladipo is averaging 11.2 points per game in 28.4 minutes per contest for the Heat this season. Miami point guard Kyle Lowry will also miss Saturday’s game with left knee soreness.

Miami center Bam Adebayo posted 20-point double-doubles in his first two games against Milwaukee this year and he might be in for another big day at Fiserv Forum Saturday. For the season, Adebayo has been helping DFS players in multiple categories. The Kentucky alumnus is averaging 21.6 points, 10 rebounds, 3.1 assists, 1.2 steals, and 0.8 blocks per game for the Heat this season. He’s also shooting an efficient 54.3% from the field on the campaign.  

Milwaukee Bucks DFS Spin

Bucks sixth man Bobby Portis will miss Saturday’s game with an MCL sprain in his right knee. He’ll likely be back in mid-February. The seventh-year forward is averaging 14.4 points and 10.1 rebounds per game in 26.8 minutes per contest for the Bucks this season.

The Bucks’ second-best player this season has been veteran point guard Jrue Holiday. The 13th-year man out of UCLA is posting 19.2 points, 7.2 assists, 5.2 rebounds, and 2.2 made three-pointers per game this season. He would be an attractive DFS option due to those numbers and the fact that he leads Milwaukee in steals with 1.3 per game.

Heat vs. Bucks NBA Prediction

The Bucks got star forward Khris Middleton back on January 23rd and have been one of the hottest teams in the NBA since. In that span, the Bucks are 6-0 and they’ve scored at least 106 points in each of those wins. What’s more, Milwaukee forward Giannis Antetokounmpo has been playing like an MVP candidate during the winning streak as he’s recorded at least 29 points and 12 rebounds in each contest during that six-game stretch. Milwaukee will have the best player on the court Saturday, and I like the Bucks to keep it rolling and win this game by more than two possessions.
