NBA DFS Top Plays for Monday 3/20/23
One player to watch out for in Monday’s NBA DFS action is Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors. Since returning from injury just eight games ago, Curry has been on fire, averaging nearly 50 fantasy points per game in that span. He’s been especially productive on the road, where he’s averaged over 50 fantasy points per game in 25 contests.
Curry’s matchup tonight against the Houston Rockets is as good as it gets, as they have a 29th-ranked defense and are giving up the most fantasy points to opposing point guards. Curry has averaged well over 60 fantasy points on both DraftKings and FanDuel in his previous two games against the Rockets this season and he should be in line for another big game tonight.
Curry’s matchup against the Rockets’ struggling defense stands out as an ideal pick on this slate. His floor and ceiling are both high, making him a valuable addition to any DFS lineup on Monday.
The MVP frontrunner has been on a tear lately, posting a 62-point average in his last 13 games and scoring at least 54 DraftKings points in 11 of them. He’s been especially productive against the Chicago Bulls, with at least 59 fantasy points in three of their last meetings.
Embiid’s performance has been so dominant recently that he’s become the favorite to win the MVP award, especially with Nikola Jokic’s recent struggles. With the 76ers fighting for the top seed in the East, Embiid has even more incentive to continue his impressive run of form. While he comes at a high price point, his elite production and consistency make him a top pick for Monday’s slate.
If you’re looking for a value pick at center on Monday’s NBA DFS slate, Myles Turner of the Indiana Pacers is worth considering. He has an enticing matchup against the Charlotte Hornets, who have been allowing the most fantasy points to opposing big men all season long. Turner has already capitalized on this matchup in his previous two games against Charlotte, scoring 46 and 50 DraftKings points respectively.
Turner’s matchup against Charlotte is one of the most appealing for centers, as the Hornets rank 29th in offensive efficiency rating surrendered to the position, with an average of 47.9 DK/49.7 FD points allowed to the big man in two previous games. Turner has averaged 24.5 points, 9.5 rebounds, 1.5 assists, 3.5 blocks, and 1.0 steals in his previous matchups against Charlotte, and he’s well-equipped to take advantage of their struggles again tonight.
Overall, Turner offers great value for his price point on both DraftKings and FanDuel, making him an ideal pick for DFS players looking for a reliable center option on Monday’s slate.
That’s all I’ve got for today
