The stacks from Tuesday night were somewhat successful. The Blazers-Pelicans game went close to 250 on the point total. The Hawks ran away from the Rockets and Gallo and John Collins came through. The Celtics didn’t quite get there but if you have Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown, that wasn’t the work combo in the world.
Sometimes with a plus-matchup on the NBA game slate, we get an opportunity to slot multiple players from the same team into our DFS lineups. You can read more about the concept of stacking here, but the main goal is to take advantage of this plus-matchup and use the salary cap to your advantage.
Here, we’ll break down three of the best team stacks for the NBA slate on Wednesday, March 17th.
Sacramento Kings vs. Washington Wizards, 7:00 p.m. ET
Russell Westbrook ($10,400)
Bradley Beal ($9,300)
Richaun Holmes ($6,700)
Tyrese Haliburton ($5,500)
Nemanja Bjelica ($3,700)
This will be the chalk stack of the night. The Kings-Wizards total is at a slate-high 247 and the spread is only 2.5 points as of now on DraftKings Sportsbook. So we’re expecting a fast-paced, high-scoring, close game. I’d say paying up for the studs on Washington and paying down for role players on SacTown makes the most sense. Russ and Beal soak up most of the scoring for the Wiz. Haliburton should get plenty of run off the bench and Holmes has a good matchup against a weak frontcourt. Bjelica is super cheap and should see more time at PF with Marvin Bagley sidelined.
San Antonio Spurs vs. Chicago Bulls, 8:00 p.m. ET
Zach LaVine ($8,800)
Dejounte Murray ($7,500)
Jakob Poeltl ($5,900)
Keldon Johnson ($5,100)
Drew Eubanks ($3,100)
This is a heavy Spurs stack with a LaVine run back. The Bulls All-Star guard is coming off 40 points last night vs. the Thunder, so there’s a chance he just stays hot. LaVine will have to if the Bulls want to win/stay in the game. Poeltl should absolutely torch Chicago. The Bulls allowed Moses Brown to dominate down low with 20 points and 16 rebounds. Eubanks is getting more run with LMA and DeMar DeRozan out, so he’s a good value option. Keldon Johnson should be the other forward clearly the glass and is cheap as well.
Detroit Pistons vs. Toronto Raptors, 7:00 p.m. ET
Jerami Grant ($7,300)
Mason Plumlee ($6,000)
Delon Wright ($5,800)
Josh Jackson ($5,100)
We’re going off the board again because I’m not feeling the Brooklyn Nets stack. Last time the Raps played the Pistons, they gave up 129 points and the Pistons basically broke the slate. Pascal Siakam is potentially back for Toronto. The team will still be missing Fred VanVleet and OG Anunoby. The Raptors have allowed at least 114 points in each game during a five-game losing streak. The Pistons give us a cheap stacking option with upside in a spot that may not be very popular.
