Tuesday brings only four games on the NBA schedule, highlighted by the Oklahoma City Thunder taking on the Milwaukee Bucks. There are still plenty of great options to choose from for your DraftKings lineup, so letís examine those who will hopefully earn you a nice treat on Halloween.


Devin Booker, PHO at BKN ($7,900): While the Suns have been terrible, Booker has continued to excel as he is averaging 36.7 DraftKings points per game this season. He scored 50.5 DraftKings points Saturday against the Portland Trail Blazers, marking the second time he has scored at least 50.0 DraftKings points in a game this season. Tuesday brings a great matchup against a Nets squad that is allowing 118.3 points per game.

Victor Oladipo, IND vs. SAC ($7,700): Things couldnít be much better for Oladipo since being traded to the Pacers as he is averaging 25.5 points, 4.5 rebounds, 3.2 assists, 1.8 steals and 2.5 three-pointers per game. Add that to the fact that he is shooting 50.0% from the field and 88.4% from the charity stripe and he is well on his way to the best season of his career. Look for him to put up more big numbers in this matchup against a bad Kings team.

Spencer Dinwiddie, BKN vs. PHO ($5,100): Dinwiddie has produced this season when given extended playing time as he scored at least 40.3 DraftKings points in both games where he logged at least 30 minutes. With Jeremy Lin (knee) out for the season and both Caris LeVert and Allen Crabbe struggling to provide consistent production, Dinwiddie might be in for an expanded role again Tuesday.


Giannis Antetokounmpo, MIL vs. OKC ($12,500): To emphasize just how good Giannis has been this season, he is coming off of his worst game of the season Sunday against the Atlanta Hawks when he scored a measly 55.8 DraftKings points. He had scored at least 60.0 DraftKings points in all five games this season before then as no one has been able to slow him down. Expect elite numbers again in this contest against the Thunder.

Rondae Hollis-Jefferson, BKN vs. PHO ($5,500): Hollis-Jefferson has been presented with an opportunity to be more involved in the offense this season and he has come through by averaging 14.1 points in 25 minutes per game. Heís a solid rebounder who is also averaging 1.0 steal and 1.1 blocks per game, so his added offensive production has moved the needle when it comes to his fantasy value. The Suns are allowing 117.2 points per game, leaving Hollis-Jefferson with an opportunity to provide valuable production.

Bogdan Bogdanovic, SAC at IND ($4,300): Bogdanovic was one of the few Kings who played well Sunday against the Washington Wizards as he scored 15 points to go along with three rebounds, four steals and one three-pointer in 23 minutes. He has played at least 23 minutes in all three games he has played in this season, which is a good sign for someone in this cheap of a price range. The Pacers are allowing an average of 112.0 points per game this season, leaving Bogdanovic with the potential to out produce his price point.


Andre Drummond, DET at LAL ($8,200): Drummond enters this contest having scored at least 40.5 DraftKings points in five straight games. Heís a bear on the glass, averaging 14.4 rebounds per game this season. Brook Lopez will be no match for him Tuesday, so get Drummond in your lineup.

Steven Adams, OKC at MIL ($5,800): Adams is thriving in his role on the Thunder as everyone else is paying attention to his three superstar teammates. While they get all the publicity, Adams is averaging career highs in points (14.5), rebounds (8.3), steals (1.5) and blocks (1.5) per game. Donít pass him up at this price.

Marquese Chriss, PHO at BKN ($4,100): Chriss is not off to a good start as he is averaging only 17.1 DraftKings points per game. The problem has been his lack of playing time as he is only playing 20 minutes per game. With that being said, the Nets are terrible up front. Considering he wonít cost you much, Chriss is worth taking a chance on Tuesday.
