Fantasy basketball tips and NBA betting predictions for Tuesday

ESPN’s fantasy basketball and basketball betting tips cheat sheet is your pre-game destination for basketball betting predictions and our best intelligence and data to help you make smart fantasy and betting decisions. NBA game odds for November 29 are provided by Caesars Sportsbook, and fantasy recommendations are based on ESPN 10-team leagues.


What you need to know for Tuesday’s matches

Kill Them Softly: The Pistons have been rocked by a wave of injuries lately, most notably Cade Cunningham’s significant shin injury. With the elimination of Cunningham and the listing of a few other key players listed as suspects for Detroit against the Knicks tonight, Killian Hayes may continue his hot streak as the team’s lead creator lately. In 88% of ESPN leagues, Hayes has had at least eight assists in four of his last six games and has been up scoring. Given the prospect of leading the Pistons on touches and passes at Garden tonight, Hayes is an ideal target to beat the props and DFS lineups. If you need some scoring, Alec Burks (93% present) averaged 18.7 points in his last six games.

Disclaimer Winslow: During a light three-game roster, head-to-head fantasy formats help to streamline productive options for winning games played. For example, Portland’s Justise Winslow is a free agent in 96% of leagues and still plays heavy minutes for coach Chauncey Billups, with 10 assists and 18 rebounds in her last two games. With the Clippers still missing Kawhi Leonard and Paul George, Winslow can put up another strong line tonight.

Next Mann Up: Speaking of Sick Clippers, the two wings also stand out for their values ​​in DFS and flow potential. Terance Mann (93% present) played an average of about 34 minutes in three games last week, helping him score 15.7 points, 5.3 RPG and 4.0 APG as a key two-way perimeter player for Los Angeles. Norman Powell (76%), meanwhile, is particularly prolific with an average of 20.6 points in his last five games, which shows he has room to top his shooting gear against the Trail Blazers.

Score Total Pistons: Sportsbooks tell you which side of the total to bet on Detroit games this season. Eight of the nine matches, which were predicted to have a total of at least 226 points, were overbooked, and nine of the other 13 matches were overbooked.

When November Ends:Dallas this month 1-12 ATS. That means it’s the last look at the November Mavs!

games of the night

Golden State Warriors at Dallas Mavericks
7:00 pm ET, American Airlines Center, Dallas, Texas

Liner: Warriors (-1.5)
money line: Warriors (-125), Mavericks (+105)
Total: 228 points
BPI Projected Total: 231.5 points
BPI Earning %: mavericks (56.9%)

Best bet: Klay Thompson over 17.5 points. The Mavericks’ defensive rating has dropped significantly in the last three games. A key element of Dallas’ defense is limiting the number of threes an opponent makes. Thompson and the Warriors are well suited to exploit this weakness. He averaged 23.2 points per game in the last six games. — Eric Moody

Best bet: Luka Doncic over 8.5 rebounds and assists. The Warriors are in the top 10 for allowing their opponents rebounds and have had trouble in road games, winning only two of their 11 competitions. Doncic’s points and rebounds have been a little recent against defensive-focused teams, but the Warriors aren’t playing great defense. Doncic has good odds for the triple-double and I would take over the rebounds and assists. — Eric Karabell

New York Knicks at Detroit Pistons
7:30 pm ET, Little Caesars Arena, Detroit, Michigan

Liner: Knicks (-5)
money line: Knicks (-210), Pistons (+175)
Total: 226.5 points
BPI Projected Total: 224.9 points
BPI Earning %: Knicks (65.4%)

likely: Isaiah Stewart (toe)
Suspicious: Marvin Bagley III, Bojan Bogdanovic, Jaden Ivey
Denied: Cade Cunningham
Note: BPI numbers take into account players who have been eliminated but assume doubtful players will play

Fantasy broadcaster: Mitchell Robinson (rosters in 54.6% of ESPN leagues) He survived his knee injury and played very well in the last two games. During this time, he scored 29 or more fantasy points. Given the matchup, Robinson is in a good position to succeed. — capricious

Best bet: Knicks -5.0. A few injuries have plagued the Pistons and I believe they will have a hard time dealing with that, even against a Knicks team that is ranked 27th in points per possession. New York is a better offensive team, ranking 13th in points scored in 100 positions. The Knicks are leading the series 8-1-1 in their last 10 games against the Pistons. Also, New York are leading 4-1 against the spread in their last five away games against Detroit. — capricious

Best bet: Jalen Brunson over 22.5 points. Brunson has scored 27 or more points in four games in a row, because every Knicks game is like a penalty shootout and he has the ball the most. Brunson’s handling is very high, not only shooting more than three shots per game compared to last season, but also doubling his output from the free throw line. Brunson must once again pass 23 points. — Eric Karabell

LA Clippers at Portland Trail Blazers
22:00 ET, Fashion Center, Portland, Oregon

Liner: Blazer (-3.5)
money line: Blazers (-170), Clippers (+143)
Total: 211 points
BPI Projected Total: 220.4 points
BPI Earning %: Blazers (56.4%)

Denied: John Wall, Kawhi Leonard, Paul George, Luke Kennard, Keon Johnson, Damian Lillard
Note: BPI numbers take into account players who have been eliminated but assume doubtful players will play

Fantasy broadcaster: Norman Powell (rosters in 23.6% of ESPN leagues) He has never contributed much when it comes to rebounds or assists, but he absolutely loves shooting and has been quite adept at scoring in limited minutes. In fact, Powell has averaged 14 points in just 25.3 MPG this season and has scored 103 points in just 138 minutes over the last five games, with no signs that Leonard will be playing anytime soon. Portland is far from being a defensive force and Powell should beat the season average of 20 fantasy points. — Caramel
