Best Bets

Austin Reaves over 12.5 points (-128) vs. Suns

FanDuel, 3:33 PM CT

Alex Barutha: Reaves' minutes haven't been stable since he was moved to the bench, but this number is quite low for someone who is still one of the team's most trusted players. In the 13 games since moving into a reserve role, Reaves has averaged 14.1 points on 9.7 shots across 27.8 minutes. I won't be surprised if he works his way into 30+ minutes in this game.

D'Angelo Russell O13.5 points vs. Phoenix Suns

DraftKings Sportsbook, 3pm CT

Nick Whalen: While I may be a noted Russell hater, this is a pretty friendly number for one of the NBA's streakiest scorers. Russell is posting 17.1 points per game on the year and has gone over this figure in 13 of 21 games thus far – including twice against Phoenix.

Knicks +4.5 at Bucks

DraftKings, 9am EST

Ken Crites: The In-Season Tourney changes things. In their one match this season, at Milwaukee, the Bucks won by five.  But the Knicks shot 39.6% in that loss, while the Bucks hit 51% of their 3's. I don't expect that to happen again.  The Knicks out-rebounded Milwaukee 56-41 in that game, which could happen again. The Bucks are missing Jae Crowder and Pat Connaughton, so Milwaukee's bench will struggle. I like New York's chances.

Bobby Portis Pts+Reb+Ast O 18.5 (-115) vs. Knicks

DraftKings Sportsbook

Ryan Pohle: The Bucks kick off the in-season tournament quarterfinals with a rematch against the Knicks, and the line on Portis here is simply too low. He's coming off a double-double Saturday and has gone over this total in 11 of the last 15 games. The Bucks are shorthanded off the bench with Pat Connaughton out for a third straight game and Andre Jackson questionable. Combine that with Khris Middleton typically not being pushed over 25 minutes and Portis should be in line for around 30 minutes tonight. He's averaging .80 PRA per minute this season, giving us some comfortable wiggle room even if this isn't the most ideal matchup.
