The Chicago Bulls travel to Michigan for a matchup with the Detroit Pistons. Let’s take a look at this NBA game from a DFS perspective.

Prior to discussing my Draftkings picks for the Bulls vs. Pistons 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 tonight’s Chicago Bulls vs. Detroit Pistons matchup.

Draftkings Picks

Captain-DeMar DeRozan $9,000

Chicago Bulls forward DeMar DeRozan has been the heart and soul of this Bulls team in 2024. Having stated that, how has DeRozan performed from an offensive efficiency standpoint this season? In 79 games played, Demar DeRozan has averaged a robust 23.7 points, 4.3 rebounds, 5.3 assists, and 1.1 steals a game.

Looking at the statistical data I just presented more closely I observed that DeMar DeRozan has averaged 40.1 total Draftkings points scored a game.

It should also be mentioned that DeMar DeRozan will be facing a Detroit Pistons defense that has had issues containing opposing power forwards recently. In the last 15 games played in the NBA, the Detroit Pistons are ranked an abysmal 24th in total Draftkings points (50.9) allowed a game to the power forward position.

Selecting the correct captain for your DFS single game showdown lineup is vital if you hope to win a large field GPP (guaranteed prize pool) Draftkings contest. Having stated that, I think that Bulls forward DeMar DeRozan fits the captain narrative perfectly for this one game slate.

Flex Plays

Nikola Vucevic $8,400

Talented Chicago Bulls center Nikola Vucevic has certainly been a key contributor to the Bulls this season. Through 79 games played, Vucevic has averaged 17.8 points, 10.5 rebounds, 3.3 assists, and 1 block a game.

Similar to DeMar DeRozan, Bulls center Nikola Vucevic draws a Detroit Pistons defense that is clearly having issues with allowing fantasy points to the center position.

In the last 15 games played in the NBA, the Detroit Pistons are ranked a rather low 21st in total Draftkings points (57.8) allowed a game to the center position.

Jaden Ivey $7,600

How important is Detroit Pistons guard Jaden Ivey to this Pistons team? Let’s dive into a recent sample size of Jaden Ivey’s recent statistical data to get a better idea of his recent performance on the basketball court. In the Detroit Pistons last three games played, Ivey has averaged 24 points, 4 rebounds, 5.7 assists, and 1 steal a game.

Additional flex plays I like this evening: Coby White $7,400: Javonte Green $4,800: Chimezie Metu $5,800.
