NBA DFS DAILY BREAKDOWN 3/21/2022 | RUN PURE SPORTS

Welcome everyone to your Run Pure Sports – NBA DFS Daily Breakdown. Today we will be previewing Monday’s 9-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.

PELICANS (114) +6, 234 vs HORNETS (120)

The Pelicans (30-41) travel to Charlotte to face the Hornets (36-35). NO is 2-3 in their last 5 games against the spread, while the Hornets are 3-2 in their last 5 games against the spread. This is a tasty game for DFS as it has the highest total on the slate. CJ Mccollum continues to do everything for this Pels team but I always prefer other high priced guys to him. Jaxson Hayes and Joval are my preffered targets. For Charlotte, optos always seem to prefer Lamelo and I will continue to dafe him in favor of Scary Terry.

New Orleans – Zion – OUT, Ingram – QUES, Graham – QUES, Nance – OUT, Lewis – OUT

Charlotte – Hayward – OUT

DFS Targets

CJ McCollum, Jaxson Hayes, Jonas Valanciunas, Terry Rozier

BLAZERS (107.5) +7.5, 222.5 vs PISTONS (115)

The Blazers (26-44) head to Detroit to take on the Pistons (19-52). Portland is 4-1 in their last 5 games against the spread, while the Pistons are 4-1 in their last 5 games against the spread. Not sure when the last time the Pistons were favored by this much. Very telling what Vegas thinks of this Portland team. The only guy I have interest in from Portland is Josh Hart. On the Pistons side, Grant is out which will vault Bey and Cunningham into increased usage roles here. They are my favorites followed by Marvin Bagley.

Injury News

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

Detroit – Grant – OUT, Joseph – QUES, Olynyk – QUES, Diallo – OUT, Hayes – Prob, F Jackson – OUT

DFS Targets

Josh Hart, Saddiq Bey, Cade Cunningham, Marvin Bagley

LAKERS (111) +5, 227 vs  CAVS (116)

LAL (30-41) head to Cleveland take on the Cavs (41-30). The Lakers are 2-3 in their last 5 games against the spread, while the Cavs are 3-2 in their last 5 games against the spread. Lebron is making his return to Cleveland tonight in a battle between 2 teams heading in opposite directions. The Lakers are the 10 seed in the west while the Cavs are looking to hold onto the 6 seed in the east. I only ever have interest in Lebron on the Lakers team and tonight is no different. For the Cavs, its Darius Garland and Evan Mobely only for me.

Injury News

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

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

DFS Targets

Lebron James, Darius Garland, Evan Mobley

HEAT (109) -2.5, 215.5 vs 76ERS (106.5)

The Heat (47-24) travel to Philly to face the 76ers (43-27). Miami is 4-1 in their last 5 games against the spread while the 76ers are 3-2 in their last 5 games against the spread.This is a playoff type game with the number 1 seed Heat taking on the number 3 seed 76ers. This game has the lowest total on the slate so I’m no sure I will like anyone here. Joel Embiid is always in play for tournaments as he is basically matchup proof but I dont love it here.

Injury News

Miami – Butler – Prob, Oladipo – OUT, Martin  Prob, Vincent – OUT

Philly – NONE

DFS Targets

Joel Embiid

JAZZ (115.25) -1.5, 229.5 vs BROOKLYN (113.75)

The Jazz (45-26) head to Brooklyn to face the Nets (37-34). The Jazz are 2-3 in their last 5 games against the spread while the Nets are 5-0 in their last 5 games against the spread. Another playoff typ matchup on this slate. Kyrie isnt available for the Nets once again, so it will be the KD show for the Nets. Donovan Mitchell is doing everything for this Jazz team right now and is firmly in play here. This is also a great spot for Gobert and Conley. I also like Seth Curry and Goran Dragic here.

Injury News

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

Brooklyn – Irving – OUT, Simmons – OUT, LMA – OUT, Harris – OUT

DFS Targets

Donovan Mitchell, Rudy Gobert, Mike Conley, KD, Goran Dragic, Seth Curry

CELTICS (115.5) -15, 216.5 vs THUNDER (100.5)

The Celtics (44-28) head to OKC to face the Thunder (20-51). The Celtics are 2-3 in their last 5 games against the spread while the Thunder are 4-1 in their last 5 games against the spread. Such a SMASH spot here for the Celtics, but I cant play the prices on Tatum and Brown with such a massive spread. These Thunder are a fade for me with the Celtics having the best D in the NBA

Injury News

Boston – Nesmith – QUES

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

DFS Targets

FADE

RAPTORS (109.75) +3.5, 223 @ BULLS (113.25)

The Raptors (40-31) head to Chicago to face the Bulls (41-29). The Raptors are 4-1 in their last 5 games against the spread while the Bulls are 2-3 in their last 5 games against the spread. The Raptors are looking to get out of the playin tournament while the Bulls have been sliding that way for a few weeks now. FVV should be back for the Raptors in this one. I like him, Siakam and Precious the most from my first look here. On the Bulls side, Lavine, Vuc and DeMar are all eating into each other recently but their prices have come down alot recently. Fringy plays for me here.

Injury News

Toronto – FVV – QUES, Flynn – OUT, OG – OUT

Chicago – Ball – OUT

DFS Targets

Fred VanVleet, Pascal Siakam, Precious Achiuwa, Zach Lavine, NIkola Vucevic, DeMar Derozan

WIZARDS (119.75) -5.5, 234 vs ROCKETS (114.25)

The WIzards (30-40) head to Houston to face the Rockets (17-54). The Wizards are 3-2 in their last 5 games against the spread while the Rockets are 2-3 in their last 5 games against the spread. This game also has the highest total on the slate and a close spread. One to like for DFS for sure. I like Porzingis th most for Washington followed by Kuzma and Gafford. On the Rockets, KPJ is my preferred target followed by Jalen Green and Christian Wood.

Injury News

Washington – Kuzma – PROB, Beal – OUT

Houston – Wall – OUT, Gordon – QUES

DFS Targets

Kristaps Porzingis, Kyle Kuzma, Daniel Gafford, Kevin Porter Jr., Jalen Green, Christian Wood

WOLVES (114) +2.5, 230.5 vs MAVS (116.5)

The Wolves (42-30) head to Dallas to face the Kings (43-28). The Wolves are 4-1 in their last 5 games against the spread while the Mavs are 2-3 in their last 5 games against the spread. These 2 teams are looking to avoid the playin tournament as they are the 5 and 6 seed. Its tough to roster any of the Wolves unless the matchup is prestine or someone is out. Pat Beverley and Anthony Edwards are my favorite targets. For the Mavs its Luka or bust for me.

Injury News

Minnesota – Towns – QUES, Mcdaniels – OUT, Reid – QUES

Dallas – Hardaway – OUT

DFS Targets

Pat Beverley, Ant Edwards, Luka the DON
