The New York Knicks travel to Wisconsin for a matchup with the Milwaukee Bucks. Let’s take a look at this NBA game from a DFS perspective.

Prior to discussing my Draftkings picks for the Knicks vs. Bucks 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 this evening’s New York Knicks vs. Milwaukee Bucks matchup.

Draftkings Picks

Captain-Jalen Bruson $9,600

New York Knicks point guard Jalen Brunson has certainly been a key contributor to this Knicks team in 2024. Having stated that, how has Brunson been playing recently?

Since the beginning of April, the Knicks have played three games. In those three games just noted, Jalen Brunson has averaged an impressive 30 points, 3.3 rebounds, 10.7 assists, and 1.7 steals a game. It has to be said, those are some outstanding offensive numbers from the Knicks point guard.

Additionally, I like Jalen Brunson’s matchup tonight. Why? Brunson will be facing a Milwaukee Bucks defense that has certainly had issues containing opposing point guards recently. In the last 15 games played in the NBA, the Milwaukee Bucks are ranked a dreadful 29th in total Draftkings points allowed a game (55.4) to the point guard position.

There is no doubt in my mind that Jalen Bruson will post quality fantasy numbers versus this vulnerable Milwaukee Bucks defense later today.

Donte DiVincenzo $7,200

Entering tonight’s game, the New York Knicks are currently ranked second in the Eastern Conference playoff standings. Having stated that, a big reason why the Knicks have played relatively consistent quality basketball this season is New York Knicks shooting guard Donte DiVincenzo.

Let’s dive into a recent sample size of DiVincenzo’s recent statistical data to get a better idea of his recent performance on the basketball court. In his last three games played, DiVincenzo has averaged 20.7 points, 4.3 rebounds, 2.7 assists, and 1.3 steals a game.

I fully expect Donte DiVincenzo’s outstanding play to continue this evening versus the Milwaukee Bucks.

Khris Middleton $7,800

Talented Milwaukee Bucks forward Khris Middleton arrives at tonight’s game with the New York Knicks playing outstanding basketball from a statistical perspective. In 77 games played this season, Khris Middleton has averaged 15.2 points, 4.6 rebounds, 5.3 assists, and 1 steal a game.

Additional flex plays I like: Giannis Antetokounmpo $11,600: Bobby Portis $7,000: Malik Beasley $4,800: Pat Connaughton $3,000.
