Kyle Kuzma UNDER 32.5 Points + Rebounds + Assists

Out of all the players poised for a breakout, Kuzma isn’t one of them. The Washington Wizards take on the Milwaukee Bucks tonight, a terrible matchup for Kuzma.

Kyle Kuzma plays at the power forward position, pitting him against Giannis Antetokounmpo. There’s no way Kuzma covers here.

Even if he wasn’t going against one of the best power forwards in NBA history, the outcome wouldn’t change. On average, Kuzma only puts up 16.0 points per game. For him to hit the over, he’d need ten rebounds and seven assists to pair with it.

The under in this one is the much better bet since plenty of attention will be on him. Bradley Beal has been ruled out, and Kuzma is their next best player. Take the under 32.5 Points + Rebounds + Assists in this one.

Giannis Antetokounmpo OVER 30.5 Points

This pick makes a ton of sense; the Bucks have one of the best offenses, highlighted by Giannis. Through his last ten games, Giannis has averaged 31.20 points per game. Considering he’s matched up against Kyle Kuzma, Antetokounmpo is set for a huge game on Tuesday.

Their last ten games against the Wizards prove just how good they are against Washington. Over the last ten meetings, the Bucks have gone 8-2 against the Wizards. Giannis is also shooting better from beyond the arc, giving him the ability to stretch the floor even more.

Let’s not forget how much of a physical presence Giannis Antokounmpo is. Kuzma is significantly smaller than Giannis and will easily get dominated in the paint. Going over 30.5-points should be no sweat for the man dubbed “The Greek Freak.”

DeMar DeRozan OVER 36.5 Points + Rebounds + Assists

The Chicago Bulls get to host the Orlando Magic on Tuesday night. To be fair, the Bulls haven’t been too dominant lately, but this game gives them a chance to re-establish themselves. DeMar DeRozan, clearly the leader of the team, has been incredible against Orlando this year.

Over their last two meetings, DeMar DeRozan has put up 35.0 points per game against Orlando. Considering that’s nearly the over on this bet, we think it’s a no-brainer. He also has Zach Lavine back in the lineup, taking some of the attention off of him.

On average, over his last fifteen games, DeRozan has put up 36.67 points+rebounds+assists per game. That’s just over the 36.5 required to hit the over in this one. Considering he’s taking on one of the NBA’s worst defenses, we think DeRozan will cover this easily.

Devin Booker UNDER 41.5 Points + Rebounds + Assists

This one is kind of an interesting one, considering who the Phoenix Suns are facing. For starters, they’re at home, a place they’ve gone 21-5 at this season.

They’re also facing the Brooklyn Nets, a team that has been significantly hit with injuries. However, there’s a looming question.

James Harden could be cleared in time for this game against the Suns. If he is, it’s likely that he’ll match up against Devin Booker.

Obviously, this wouldn’t work out too well for Devin Booker on Tuesday night. More importantly, Booker hasn’t cleared 41.5 PTS+REBS+ASTS all year.

Considering the chance of Harden coming back to play on Tuesday night, we’d go with the under. It’ll also make more sense for them to spread the ball around with all the injuries on the Nets roster. You could expect quite a game from Chris Paul and Mikal Bridges, however.

Mikal Bridges OVER 19.5 Points + Rebounds

We believe that Mikal Bridges is set to have one of his best games against the injured Nets. Patty Mills will be the player tasked with guarding Bridges, a very favorable matchup.

Some forget that Bridges also has the ability to stretch the floor, making him a threat from the 3PT line.

Over his last ten games, he’s averaged five rebounds and 12.3 points. Sure, it’s slightly under the 19.5 point total, but you have to take Brooklyn’s injuries into account.

The Nets lineup is decimated, and players won’t get much of a breather. By the second half, they could be gassed.

This is where players like Mikal Bridges shine, stretching the floor and flashing in for rebounds. LaMarcus Aldridge is out of the Nets, leaving them without a significant big man. Look for Bridges to go well over the 19.5 Points + Rebounds total on Tuesday night.
