To say the least, the Bucks (-16.5) won this game easily as one of the largest favorites we have seen all season. The game out of hand so quickly that none of Milwaukee’s starters played more than 22 minutes and three of its starters played under 20 minutes. For fantasy purposes, the lopsided score made for a bad situation.

The dominance of Giannis Antetokounmpo ($12,000) is almost comical. Despite only playing 22 minutes, he scored 54.25 DKFP against the Knicks, who predictably had no answers for the reining MVP. At the end of the year, he could be the back-to-back MVP according to the odds at DraftKings Sportsbook. The Greek Freak is the favorite to take home the award at +190 odds.

On the Knicks’ side of the game, Dennis Smith Jr. ($3,200) entered the starting lineup in place of Frank Ntilikina, who missed the game with a back injury. Smith figured to be one of the top values on the slate as a cheap starting point guard and he disappointed in a big way. As the mega chalk of the night, Smith was only able to muster 11.25 DKFP in the blowout loss.
