The Chicago Bulls travel to Florida for a matchup with the Miami Heat. Let’s take a look at this NBA game from a DFS perspective.

Prior to discussing my Draftkings picks for the Bulls vs. Heat game, let’s review an important note regarding the rules and scoring for the single game showdown contests.

For those readers who are not aware, the rules and scoring for DraftKings single game showdown contests are vastly different than the traditional classic contests offered by the platform.

If you need to review the specific rules for the single game showdown contests feel free to check out the Draftkings website.

Here are my Draftkings picks for tomorrow’s Chicago Bulls vs. Miami Heat matchup.

Draftkings Player Picks

Captain-Tyler Herro $8,600

Miami Heat shooting guard Tyler Herro has been posting some outstanding offensive numbers in 2024. Let me be more specific. In 82 games played for the Miami Heat this season, Tyler Herro has averaged 20.9 points, 5.2 rebounds, 4.6 assists, and 0.7 steals a game.

Tonight, Tyler Herro draws a Chicago Bulls defense that has had issues with allowing fantasy points to the opposing shooting guard position.

In the last 30 games played in the NBA, the Chicago Bulls are ranked a rather low 20th in total Draftkings points (43.1) allowed a game to the shooting guard position.

It should also be noted that talented Miami Heat forward Jimmy Butler sustained a knee injury in Miami’s loss to the Philadelphia 76ers on Monday. The unfortunate injury will result in Jimmy Butler not playing in tonight’s game.

In my opinion, Miami Heat guard Tyler Herro will see an increased presence within the Heat offense due to Butler’s absence from this evening’s game.

Flex Plays

Bam Adebayo $9,800

Miami Heat center Bam Adebayo has certainly been a key contributor to this Heat team this season. Having stated that, how has Adebayo been playing recently?

Since the beginning of April, the Miami Heat have played nine games. In those nine games just noted, Bam Adebayo has averaged a robust 14.6 points, 8.7 rebounds, 2.9 assists, 1 steal, and 1 block a game. It has to be said, those are some outstanding offensive numbers from the Miami Heat center.

Looking at the relevant data just presented more closely I observed that, in Bam Adebayo’s last nine games played, Adebayo has averaged 33.2 Draftkings points a game.

I fully expect Bam Adebayo to post quality fantasy numbers versus this Chicago Bulls team later today.

Additional flex plays I like (Draftkings price noted): DeMar DeRozan $9,400: Nikola Vucevic $8,400: Coby White $8,000: Jaime Jaquez Jr. $6,000: Duncan Robinson $5,200.
