NBA DFS Core Plays: February 5
Published: Feb 05, 2022
Tonight's five game slate gives us a few teams (Portland, Charlotte, Oklahoma City) that played last night.
Portland continues to be shorthanded due to injury, but there is now even more of an opportunity for playing time, we are looking you Mr. Chalk (Tony Snell) and emerging young guard Anfernee Simons, after the trade of Norman Powell.
LeBron James is positioned to miss another game with his knee injury and De'Aaron Fox appears to be in a similar situation with an ankle injury. Even if Fox does return, I wouldn't expect much from him after missing seven games to this point.
The highest scoring game of the night, Milwaukee at Portland, also projects to be the biggest blowout with the Bucks favored by 10.5 points. Based on the way Miami generally plays, it is a little surprising to see their matchup against Charlotte with an over/under of 227.5, but that is certainly something to keep an eye on. At 212.5, the Knicks visit to Los Angeles to face the Lakers is clearly expected to be the lowest scoring game of the night.
