Welcome to Bales’ Premium PrizePicks – NBA Player Props 3/10! Below I will discuss my NBA favorite plays for tonight’s slate!
Collin Sexton caught fire in recent games. He’s averaging 31.0 points, 3.8 rebounds, 4.5 assists, and 1.8 steals (43.0 fantasy points) in 40.5 minutes per game over his last 4 games. Sexton posted 39+ fantasy points in 3 of those 4 games. He gets an outstanding matchup against the Chicago Bulls tonight. They rank 16th in the NBA in pace and 13th in defensive rating. With that being said, Chicago is dealing with injuries that will hurt their defense tonight. Sexton will find minutes in the high-30s or low-40s once again tonight, and he’ll continue to be the focal point of the offense. He should find plenty of success in this game, and his total is surprisingly low for his recent production.
DeMar DeRozan is beginning to heat up once again. He posted 43.6 and 42.5 fantasy points in his last 2 games. DeRozan will see a small uptick in usage rating tonight, as he’ll take over as the focal point of the offense with LaMarcus Aldridge and Dejounte Murray injured. He gets a plus matchup against the Dallas Mavericks, who rank 18th and 17th in the NBA in pace and defensive rating. DeRozan is expected to find minutes in the mid- to high-30s tonight. He quietly comes with triple-double potential, and makes an outstanding option on this slate.
