Notable NBA Game Totals Today, 3/31


Top-Price NBA DFS Core Plays

Luka Doncic, PG, Dallas Mavericks

Luka Doncic is the most expensive player on the slate sitting at $12,600 and is also questionable heading in. He has the highest ceiling on the highest floor on the slate as he has scored at least 55 DKP in six straight games. This game also has the highest game total on the slate, so It would be ideal to play your studs from this game.

Victor Wembanyama, C, San Antonio Spurs

Wemby is coming off a career game going against the New York Knicks in a pace-down matchup. He finished with 40 points and 20 rebounds while also having three stocks and seven assists adding up with 83 DKP. What we also love to see is him playing 38 minutes. I do not expect to see that once again in this one with the Spurs, down a few guys and it could be a blowout with the Warriors favored by 8.5 points. This a much better matchup than the previous game for Wemby so he could have another big game.

Jalen Brunson, PG, New York Knicks

Jalen Brunson is coming off a huge game in a great matchup against the Spurs. This matchup isn't quite as juicy as that one, but it is a good one with the Thunder being in the top 10 in pace across the NBA. Brunson did his best Kobe Bryant impression by getting up 47 shots scoring a season-high 61 points and dishing out six assists. These Knicks players are playing a ton of minutes as Brunson saw 43 minutes in that game. With this game expected to be close, Brunson is very in play tonight.

Jalen Green, PG/SG, Houston Rockets

Since Alperen Sengun has been out, Jalen Green has become the alpha in this offense. Green is priced at just 9K on DraftKings and has gone 5x his value in his last four games scoring over 45 DKP. He doesn't have quite the ceiling as the guys above him, but it is a great matchup against the Dallas Mavericks. Not only does Dallas rank in the top 10 in pace, but they also rank in the bottom 10 in defensive efficiency

Mid-Price NBA DFS Core Plays

Stephen Curry, PG, Golden State Warriors

Stephen Curry is a bit of a risky play tonight because many other players are playing a ton of minutes. Steph has played just 35 minutes twice in his last 17 games but his price may be too good to pass up on DraftKings sitting at just $8,500 on DraftKings. It is such a great matchup against the Spurs who just allowed Jalen Brunson to score 61 game points. Steph and Brunson's games are totally different, but the Spurs defense is still ranked in the bottom 10 in defensive efficiency. Steph's price may just be too good to pass up on this Easter Sunday.

Josh Hart, SF/PF, New York Knicks

I can keep this one short and sweet. You can keep playing Josh Hart as long as he continues to play these minutes. Hart has a triple-double upside every single night since he has had one in two of his previous six games. With Hart averaging 40 minutes a night, and having another good matchup against the Thunder Hart should be in your lineup once again today. 

Donte DiVincenzo, SG/SF, New York Knicks

If you are looking to save a bit of money and stay in the same Thunder-Knicks game Donte DiVincenzo is another good option outside of Hart. Donte is playing a ton of minutes as well averaging just under 39 minutes a game over his last five games. He is more of an offensive threat than Hart, but he doesnt quite do the small things like Hart, and doesnt have a triple-double upside. But either guy is a solid play in this one.

Cam Thomas, SG, Brooklyn Nets

Cam Thomas has one thing on his mind when he steps on the court, and that is too score the basketball. In his last two games, Thomas has played over 40 minutes and put up at least 22 shots in both games scoring over 48 DKP in each. He has also done the little things grabbing 10 rebounds and dishing out 11 assists over that time. Thomas. I expect Thomas to have another solid game against the Lakers in this one. 

Josh Giddey, PG/SG, Oklahoma City Thunder

Shai Gilegous-Alexander was upgraded from doubtful to questionable earlier in the day so he could play tonight. However, if SGA doesn't end up playing Josh Giddey needs to be in your lineup. In the three games without SGA in the lineup this season Giddey's usage rate goes from 22% to 33% and his PPG goes from 11.7 to 24. Play Giddey tonight if SGA is ruled out.

Dennis Schroder, PG, Brooklyn Nets

Can I interest you in a Dennis Schroder revenge game narrative against the Lakers tonight? He has also taken his offensive game to another level over the last three games. During that span, he has gotten up at least 15 shot attempts and has dished out seven assists in each game. He has finished with 34 DKP in each game and he is still just priced at $6,400. Go back to the well with Schroder once again in this one.

Value-Tier NBA DFS Core Plays

Corey Kispert, SF/PF, Washington Wizards

Corey Kispert is another guy who is playing a boatload of minutes playing at least 38 minutes in three straight games. The Wizards also play with the highest pace in the NBA and Kispert is going to get his shots up. He has gotten up at least 12 shot attempts in those three games. The issue with him is if he doesnt hit his shots there are times when he does not give you any peripheral stats. He is a bit risky with a pace-down matchup against the Heat, but he could still hit his value at his price.

Ivica Zubac, C, Los Angeles Clippers

I love Zubac's price on this slate sitting at just $5,300 going against the Charlotte Hornets. The Hornets' defense is bad and they do not play with a ton of bigs giving Zubac a big advantage. In the only other matchup against the Hornets this season Zubac finished with an 18-14 double-double for 46 DKP. Zubac is a no-brainer play for me today. 

P.J. Washington, PF/C, Charlotte Hornets

Washington is the best big on this Mavericks roster and feel as if his $5,100 price is a misprice in this one. His ceiling depends on whether he knocks down his shots each night as he has gotten double-digit shots up in three straight games. With Alperen Sengun I feel as if Washington has the best opportunity to see minutes tonight as the small ball five for this Mavericks team.

Kyle Anderson, SF/PF, Minnesota Timberwolves

Kyle Anderson does not have a very high ceiling because he just isn't an offensive threat. Anderson will not put up double-digit shot attempts but he does all the little things for this Timberwolves team. Anderson has dished out at least five assists in four straight games while also grabbing 19 rebounds during that span. I understand if you want to play guys who play more minutes than Anderson, just know that he can also provide a solid floor at just 5K on DraftKings.

Andre Drummond, C, Chicago Bulls

If there was ever the perfect matchup for Andre Drummond it would be this one. With the Timberwolves playing two bigs, the Bulls will likely play Nikola Vucevic and Andre Drummond a lot in this one. When Drummond gets minutes he will produce because of his outstanding rebounding prowess. In the last matchup against the Timberwolves Drummond played 35 minutes and scored 16 points and grabbed 16 rebounds finishing with 45 DKP. Drummond is a great play at his price of just $4,600 on DraftKings.
