March 23 NBA DFS Picks

Los Angeles Lakers at New Orleans Pelicans

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

Brandon Ingram, SF, New Orleans Pelicans: More Than 39.5 Fantasy Points

Ingram just went off for 54.2 MKF points against the Nuggets on Sunday and has eclipsed 39.5 MKF points in 19 of 42 games overall, with 12 of those occasions coming on his home floor of Smoothie King Center. Ingram is also shooting an impressive 47.7 percent at home, including 38.5 percent from three-point range, and he won’t have to worry about dealing with any of LeBron James’ defense Tuesday, which has largely been responsible for Los Angeles normally being one of the toughest teams in the league against small forwards.

Kyle Kuzma, PF, Los Angeles Lakers: More Than 33.5 Fantasy Points

Kuzma’s shooting struggles (5-16 FG) Sunday versus the Suns capped his production to an extent, but he still came close to eclipsing this benchmark with 31.2 MKF points across 36 minutes. Kuzma is naturally capable of much better offensive efficiency and also doesn’t have quite as tough a matchup in the Pelicans, which are ranked in the bottom half of the league in offensive efficiency surrendered to frontcourt players and allow the third-highest three-point shooting percentage (38.6) to the position.

Philadelphia 76ers at Golden State Warriors

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

Tobias Harris, PF, Philadelphia 76ers: More Than 40.5 Fantasy Points

Harris has eclipsed 40.5 MKF points in four of the last five games, and he’s come within two-tenths of an MKF point of meeting or exceeding this benchmark in 14 of 38 games overall. Harris should benefit from the very fast pace this game should be played at despite Stephen Curry’s absence, and Golden State already comes in ranked in the bottom 10 in offensive efficiency (26.2 percent) allowed to power forwards while also allowing the sixth-most MKF points per game (45.6) to the position.

Andrew Wiggins, SF, Golden State Warriors: More Than 34.5 Fantasy Points

Wiggins has averaged 51.2 MKF points over the first two games of Curry’s current absence, and he’s averaging 36.6 MKF points per 36 minutes without Curry on the floor this season. The 2014 first overall pick has eclipsed 34.5 MKF points on 11 occasions already, and he’ll be facing a 76ers team that’s allowed the fifth-highest offensive efficiency (24.8 percent) to shooting guards, along with the second-most MKF points per game to the position (45.2) over the last 15 games.

NBA Betting News

  • Warriors -10000 to win West

    The Golden State Warriors are -10000 to win the Western Conference, according to BettingPros consensus odds.

    Betting Impact:
    The Warriors hold a commanding 3-0 series lead and are fully expected to advance to the NBA Finals. No team has ever overcome a 0-3 hole to win a Conference Finals series.

  • Warriors -143 to win NBA Championship

    The Golden State Warriors are -143 to win the 2021-22 NBA Championship, per BettingPros consensus odds.

    Betting Impact:
    With the Western Conference Finals all but wrapped up with the Warriors holding a 3-0 series lead, Golden State has become the first team pegged with negative juice to win it all. Their odds will only see more movement prior to Game 4, and after they win the series, so those with designs on a Warriors future may want to take that into consideration.

  • Celtics +340 to win NBA Title

    The Boston Celtics are listed at +340 to win the 2021-22 NBA Championship, per BettingPros consensus odds.

    Betting Impact:
    Boston, back at the +340 they sat at prior to Game 2, has seen their championship odds hold steady despite their odds to win the East dropping from positive to negative juice. Boston was +180 prior to Game 3's loss.

  • Celtics -105 to win East

    The Boston Celtics are -105 to win the Eastern Conference, per BettingPros consensus odds.

    Betting Impact:
    The Celtics sat at +130 just yesterday but have climbed in the wake of the news that Tyler Herro is out with a quad injury and due to Jimmy Butler and Kyle Lowry both being listed as questionable for Game 4. If Boston ties up the series, their odds will rise dramatically. Boston was -167 heading into Game 3.

  • Celtics vs. Heat over/under listed at 206.5

    The over/under for tonight's matchup between the Boston Celtics and the Miami Heat is listed at 206.5, per BettingPros consensus odds.

    Betting Impact:
    The total for this contest sits at 206.5, down from the 208.5 it opened at. 62 percent of the public action has come on the over.
