The Game Day breaks down two MKF contests daily that we feel have profit potential. With Tuesday’s slate featuring plenty of big names, here’s a closer look at some opportunities involving some of the most offensively explosive players in action:

March 30 NBA DFS Picks

Philadelphia 76ers at Denver Nuggets

MKF Contest: More Or Less, Fantasy Points (Pick 2/2 correctly to win 2.5x your Buy-In)

MKF NBA Fantasy Points Scoring System:

  • Point= +1 point
  • Assist= +1.5 points
  • Rebound= +1.2 points
  • Steal= +3 points
  • Block= +3 points
  • Turnover= -1 point

Nikola Jokic, C, Denver Nuggets: Less Than 52.5 Fantasy Points

Jokic was limited to 39.8 MKF points when he first faced the 76ers back on Jan. 9, a game in which Dwight Howard served as his primary opposition down low, just as will be the case Tuesday. The big man has cleared the 52.5 benchmark in four of the last seven games and certainly has the talent to outpace it by a good amount, but Philadelphia comes in ranked No. 3 in defensive efficiency and allowing an NBA-low 44.3 MKF points per game to centers on the campaign, including just a bump up to 42.6 the last seven games without Embiid.

Tobias Harris, PF, Philadelphia 76ers: More Than 41.5 Fantasy Points

Harris has exceeded this benchmark in 15 games this season, including six of the last eight games. The common denominator there is naturally Joel Embiid’s absence, a circumstance in which Harris averages 44.5 MKF points per 36 minutes this season. The Nuggets also check in allowing the highest offensive efficiency (28.6 percent) to power forwards, along with 48.7 percent shooting, including 40.1 percent from three-point range. Harris is averaging 53.2 percent shooting, including 44.4 percent from distance, over the last 10 games, and he’s actually been a slightly more productive scorer on the road (21.0 PPG) than home (20.8 PPG) on the campaign.

Atlanta Hawks at Phoenix Suns

MKF Contest: More or Less (Pick 2/2 correctly to win 2.5x your Buy-In)

Clint Capela, C, Atlanta Hawks: More Than 13.5 rebounds

The Hawks are shooting a relatively pedestrian 45.8 percent on the road and Suns give up just a 45.6 percent success rate on their home floor, a pair of numbers that foretell a possible busy night for Capela on the offensive glass. Capela is also averaging a full rebound more per game on the road (14.6) than at home (13.6), and he’s pulled down at least 14 boards in 22 of 40 games this season, with 14 of those instances coming on the road. The Suns have also allowed an elevated 56.7 boards per game in their last three, rank in the bottom half of the league with 14.6 rebounds per game surrendered to centers and have drawn the seventh-fewest fouls per game (4.4) from fives, all signs Capela could have enough opportunities for “More” to hit.

Chris Paul, PG, Phoenix Suns: More Than 8.5 assists

The Suns are currently putting up the third-highest shooting percentage (49.2) of any team on its home floor, and Paul is averaging 8.0 assists per home contest. Atlanta has also been a more generous defensive team shooting-wise on the road (46.8 percent allowed) than at home (44.9 percent) and are yielding 24.3 assists per away contest. Paul has dished out at least nine dimes in 23 of 44 games, with 11 of those occasions coming in the last 20 contests.
