PrizePicks NBA Player Predictions | Dec. 6
Terry Rozier M/L 37.5 Fantasy Score
The Hornets are 5-point road underdogs in Chicago tonight. LaMelo Ball is still out for Charlotte and Rozier gets big bumps in usage and assist rates resulting in 1.12 fantasy points per minute. In 56 games without LaMelo, Rozier is playing 36 minutes per game so we can expect he’ll be on the court a lot tonight.
The Bulls are playing without Zach LaVine tonight and are bottom 10 in opponent points, rebounds, and assists to guards. This is a pace-down spot for the Hornets but the Bulls ranks 22nd in defensive rating. Rozier takes advantage of the opportunity without LaMelo.
Tyrese Maxey M/L 25.5 Points
Tyrese Maxey gets the best matchup in the NBA tonight against the lowly Wizards who rank 29th in defensive rating and second in pace. Philadelphia is a 10-point road favorite in Washington with a 239.5 total. The 76ers have the highest implied team total on the night at 124.75.
Maxey is averaging 27 points per game and 26.9 on the road. The 76ers blew out the Wizards back on Nov. 6, leaving Maxey with just 22 points in 31 minutes, seven minutes less than his season average of 38.4. This game does have risk of a blowout, but the Wizards have improved their net rating from -7.8 to -6 over their last five games. Here’s to keeping this one close.
DeMar DeRozan M/L 24.5 Points
DeMar DeRozan gets a favorable matchup in pace-up spot against the Hornets tonight. DeRozan averages just 21.5 points per game but two points better at home. Charlotte ranks 25th in opponent points in the paint while DeRozan is second on the Bulls with 8.0 points in the paint. The Hornets rank 26th in opponent points per game and field goal percentage.
In addition to the good matchup, Zach LaVine is out for Chicago opening the door for more usage and point scoring. In his last 10 games without LaVine, DeRozan is averaging 28.5 points per game. The Hornets rank just 26th in field goal percentage allowed to opposing forwards. OddsShopper’s Positive EV Bets tool tells that all other operators are heavy on the over.
Two-pick power plays and five-pick flex plays have the most expected value. If you’re looking for more picks, check out our PrizePicks Optimizer.
