We have five games across the NBA on Tuesday, March 19th, so there are plenty of routes to attack with my Underdog Fantasy NBA picks today. 

There are a lot of great spots on today’s slate, but three I’m targeting are Fred VanVleet of the Houston Rockets, Jose Alvarado of the New Orleans Pelicans, and Julian Champagnie of the San Antonio Spurs. Let’s dive into our top Underdog Fantasy NBA picks today!




NBA Underdog Fantasy Picks Today, 3/19

Fred VanVleet DFS Plays: Houston Rockets

Since Alperen Sengun went down three games ago, Fred VanVleet has averaged 17 potential assists per game. He’s hit the over in four of five games and six of his last eight overall. The match-up for VanVleet doesn’t get any better as Washington is the worst defensive unit in the league while also playing at the fastest pace in the league. What makes you feel better about this game staying competitive enough to get FVV full minutes, Houston is 9-24 on the road this year.

Jose Alvarado DFS Plays: New Orleans Pelicans

I feel like this is a freebie, so I’m going to add it to a three-pick for today’s Underdog Fantasy picks since it’s only a .7x multiplier. Alvarado has made at least one three in nine consecutive games, in 13-of-15 (87%) and 24-of-30 (80%). Alvarado is shooting 43% from the three-point line since the All-Star break.




Julian Champagnie DFS Plays: San Antonio Spurs

It seems like a small thing, but with Cedi Osman returning to the lineup last game, Champagnie’s minutes plummeted, and he was essentially a non-factor while out there. In fact, he’s gone under the 10.5 PRA in four straight games that Osman has played in and has only played more than 17 minutes once in that span. With the Spurs turning to Keldon Johnson more along with Cedi Osman, just because Champagnie starts doesn’t mean much here.
