NBA DFS DAILY BREAKDOWN 3/16/2022 | RUN PURE SPORTS

Welcome everyone to your Run Pure Sports – NBA DFS Daily Breakdown. Today we will be previewing Wednesday’s 12-game slate in the NBA. The idea of this article will be to give you a quick glance at the games each day and provide the overnight point spreads, game and team totals along with overnight injury news and potential DFS targets.

NUGGETS (117.25) -6, 228.5 vs WIZARDS (111.25)

The Nuggets (41-28) travel to Washington to face the Wizards (29-38). Denver is 2-3 in their last 5 games against the spread, while the Wizards are 3-2 in their last 5 games against the spread. Denver is 1.5 games up on the Wolves for the 6 seed in the playoffs, so they are trying to avoid the playin tournament. NIkola Jokic should absolutely DESTROY this Wizards frontcourt. He is my only interest on the Nuggets. On the Wizards side, Im not so sure I’m willing to pay the price for Kyle Kuzma, as I would rather pay less for Porzingis. I also like Caldwell-Pope in this matchup.

Denver – Gordon – QUES, Porter – OUT, Murray – OUT, Ja Green – QUES, Nnaji – QUES

Washington – Beal – OUT

DFS Targets

Nikola Jokic, Kristaps Porzingis, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope

_________________________________________________________________________

76ERS (111) -4.5, 217.5 vs CAVS (106.5)

The 76ers (41-26) head to Cleveland to take on the Cavs (39-29). Philly is 3-2 in their last 5 games against the spread, while the Cavs are 3-2 in their last 5 games against the spread. The 76ers are 3.5 games out of the 1 seed in the east and are looking to get up to the 1 seed. This game has the lowest total on the slate and I wont have much interest in DFS. I do like the Sixers to cover here though. If I had to pick someone from the Sixers it would have to be Harden at 10.1K. On the Cleveland side, it would be Garland or bust for me but I’m not thrilled playing him.

Injury News

Philly – NONE

Cleveland – Allen – OUT, Rondo – OUT, Wade – OUT, Sexton – OUT

DFS Targets

James Harden, Darius Garland

HAWKS (118.25) +2, 238.5 vs HORNETS (120.25)

Atlanta (34-34) head to Charlotte take on the Hornets (34-35). The Hawks are 2-3 in their last 5 games against the spread, while the Hornets are 3-2 in their last 5 games against the spread.These teams are the 9 and 10 seed for the playin tournament as of this writing. This is an absolute SMASH spot for Trae Young and is still too cheap at 10.3K. We have also targeted Centers versus this Hornets team all season which makes Capela and awesome play here. The minutes ceiling for Hunter and Huerter are also increased with Collins out and Gallo Questionable. If Gallo sits, I dont hate Okongwu as a punt option. Delon Wright got the start in the last game with both Collins and Gallo out and played 30 minutes. For the Hornets, I will continue to play Terry Rozier over Lamelo as he continues to be cheaper than him while smashing his DK score night in and night out. Love stacking this game up as it has the 2nd highest total on the slate.

Injury News

Atlanta – Collins – OUT, Gallo – QUES

Charlotte – Hayward – OUT

DFS Targets

Trae Young, Clint Capela, Deandre Hunter, Kevin Huerter, Onyeka Okongwu, Terry Rozier

BLAZERS (106.75) +11, 224.5 vs KNICKS (117.75)

Portland (26-41) travel to NY to face the Knicks (28-40). The Blazers are 4-1 in their last 5 games against the spread while the Knicks are 3-2 in their last 5 games against the spread. I like the Blazers to cover this massive spread. The Blazers are mostly overpriced for this matchup and I wont have any of them here. I wont be spending up for Randle or Barrett in this spot either. I dont hate adding Quickley to your MME pool.

Injury News

Portland – Lillard – OUT, Nurkic – OUT, Simons – OUT, Winslow – QUES, Little – OUT, Bledsoe – OUT, SMith – OUT, Zeller – OUT, Ingles – OUT

New York – Rose – OUT, Grimes – OUT, Reddish – OUT, Hill – OUT, Walker – OUT, Noel – OUT

DFS Targets

Immanuel Quickley

MAVS (111) -1.5, 220.5 vs NETS (109.5)

The Mavs (42-26) travel to Brooklyn to face the Nets (36-33). The Mavs 2-3 in their last 5 games against the spread, while the Nets are 5-0 in their last 5 games against the spread. This is a Marquee matchup between Luka Doncic and Kevin Durant as Kyrie cant play at home here. For the Mavs, Luka is my priamry target here with Maxi Kleber the only other interest for me. For the Nets, its Kevin Durant and Goran Dragic who should get the start at PG and is only 4200. Bruce Brown is also in play for me.

Injury News

Dallas – Bullock – OUT, Hardaway – OUT, Chriss – OUT

Brooklyn – Irving – OUT, Simmons – OUT, Curry – QUES, LMA – OUT, Harris – OUT, Thomas – QUES

DFS Targets

Luka Doncic, Maxi Kleber, Kevin Durant, Goran Dragic, Bruce Brown

_________________________________________________________________________

LAKERS (114.75) +9, 238.5 vs WOLVES (123.75)

The Lakers (29-39) head to Minnesota to face the Wolves (40-30). The Lakers are 2-3 in their last 5 games against the spread while the Wolves are 4-1 in their last 5 games against the spread. LA should get destroyed in this game which I absolutely LOVE. I will continue to fade this Lakers team in DFS. The Wolves have a ton of guys who are questionable for this so check out Glock’s PB to get the plays later today.

Injury News

LAL – James – QUES, AD – OUT, Horton-Tucker – QUES

MInnesota – Vanderbilt – QUES, Beverley – QUES, Mcdaniels – QUES, Reid – QUES, Mclaughlin – QUES

DFS Targets

No Lakers, Wolves-TBD

SUNS (123.25) -11, 235.5 vs ROCKETS (112.25)

The Suns (55-14) head to HOU to face the Rockets (17-51). The Suns are 1-3-1 in their last 5 games against the spread while the Rockets are 2-3 in their last 5 games against the spread. Phoenix is on a b2b and are on cruise control enroute to the 1 seed on the West. Devin Booker continues to do everything for this team with CP3 out and I think he should be a 10k players. I have interest in him here. If this game stays close DeAndre Ayton should smash. Dont have any interest in the Rockets here.

Injury News

Phoenix – CP3 – OUT, Johnson – QUES, Kaminsky – OUT, Nader – OUT

Houston – Wall – OUT, Gordon – QUES

DFS Targets

Devin Booker, Deandre Ayton

THUNDER (110.5) +11, 234.5 @ SPURS (124)

The Thunder (20-48) head to San Antonio to face the Spurs (26-43). The Thunder are 2-3 in their last 5 games against the spread while the Spurs are 3-2 in their last 5 games against the spread. SGA is questionable for this game and we DEF need that news for DFS and betting. Olivier Sarr got the start last game and played 32 minutes. If he starts again he is in play at only 3500. This is an incredible matchup for Dejounte Murray but alot depends on SGA news for me. Poeltl should also be able to get whatever he wants here. Check back later in the discord and Glock’s playbook to see where we land on this game!

Injury News

OKC – SGA – QUES, Giddey – OUT, Dort – OUT, Williams – OUT, Jerome – OUT, Favors – OUT, Muscala – OUT, Robinson-Earl – OUT

San Antonio – Bates-Diop – OUT, McDermott – OUT

DFS Targets

SGA, Olivier Sarr, Tre Mann, Dejounte Murray, Jakob Poeltl

BULLS (109.75) +6, 225.5 vs JAZZ (115.75)

The Bulls (41-27) head to Utah to face the Jazz (42-26). The Bulls are 2-3 in their last 5 games against the spread while the Jazz are 2-3 in their last 5 games against the spread. For the Bulls, I dont have much interest outside of Zach Lavine. With Bojan and House OUT for this one, I would expect Rudy Gay to get the start and he is only 3100. Rudy Gobert is really cheap in this matchup, and I like him alot. Mike Conley is always MEH for me, but his price is still a bit too low. Donovan Mitchell is OK here but I prefer other spends on this slate.

Injury News

Chicago – Lavine – PROB, Ball – OUT, Williams – OUT

Utah – Bogdanovic – OUT, House – OUT, Azubuike – OUT, Forrest – QUES

DFS Targets

Zach Lavine, Rudy Gay, Rudy Gobert, Mike Conley

BUCKS (124.5) -9, 240 vs KINGS (115.5)

The Bucks (43-26) head to Sacramento to face the Kings (25-45). The Bucks are 1-4 in their last 5 games against the spread while the Kings are 3-2 in their last 5 games against the spread. This is such an incredible matchup for the Bucks, but I have serious doubts that this game can stay close. I like the Bucks to cover here. Giannis can always get 60DK in three quarters but I’m not so sure I will have any tonight. Fox has been incredible as of late, but at 9400 I like other spend ups more tonight. The same goes for Sabonis.

Injury News

Milwaukee – Bembry – OUT, Connaughton – OUT, Wigginton – QUES

Sacramento – Davis – OUT, Lamb – OUT

DFS Targets

Giannis Antetokounmpo, Trey Lyles

CELTICS (109) +3, 221 vs WARRIORS (112)

The Celtics (41-28) head to GS to face the Warriors (47-22). The Celtics are 2-3 in their last 5 games against the spread while the Warriors are 4-1 in their last 5 games against the spread. This is going to be a stayawy game for me on tonights slate. The Celtics have the best defense in the league right now and the Warriors just got their best defender back in Draymond Green. Complete stay away from me in betting and DFS.

Injury News

Boston – Nesmith – OUT

Golden State – Wiggins – QUES, Payton – OUT, Iggy – OUT

DFS Targets

NONE

RAPTORS (110) -2, 218 vs CLIPPERS (108)

The Toronto Raptors (38-30) head to LA to face the Clippers (36-35). The Raptors are 3-2 in their last 5 games against the spread while the Clippers are 2-3 in their last 5 games against the spread. We need the Vanvleet news here. Precious Achiuwa has been getting the start and is coming off a 33 minute game. He should continue to start and is an awesome value at only 3900. Gary Trent, Scottie Barnes and Siakam are doing everything for this team right now and are always in play for me. Its always hard for me to play any Clippers and tonight is no different.

Injury News

Toronto – VanVleet – QUES, Flynn – OUT, Anunoby – DOUB

LAL – Leonard – OUT, PG – OUT, Powell – OUT, Giles – OUT, Preston – OUT, Scrubb – OUT

DFS Targets

Pascall Siakam, Scottie Barnes, Gary Trent, Precious Achiuwa
