There are eight games on the NBA slate for Monday night. We’ve got a ton of injuries that have popped up over the past couple of days, pretty impactful ones. We also have the NBA Trade Deadline approaching on Thursday and the second round of March Madness going on all day.
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 Monday, March 22nd.
Milwaukee Bucks vs. Indiana Pacers, 9 p.m. ET
Khris Middleton ($7,600)
Jrue Holiday ($6,800)
Brook Lopez ($4,900)
Pat Connaughton ($4,200)
Bobby Portis ($4,100)
The only rotation player we’re really leaving out is Donte DiVincenzo ($6,100), who is a bit priced up for the Giannis Antetokounmpo injury. Giannis (knee) is doubtful to play, so the Bucks will enter Monday without their best player. Middleton and Holiday will be chalky, as well as Portis. Lopez and Connaughton feel like strong plays, too, if we’re stacking the Bucks. The game total is set at 231.5 right now. If this game is close and up and down, we get too much value on Milwaukee.
Toronto Raptors vs. Houston Rockets, 9 p.m. ET
Fred VanVleet ($7,600)
Pascal Siakam ($7,500)
Norman Powell ($7,100)
Chris Boucher ($6,100)
There’s a lot of speculation surrounding the Raptors with the deadline approaching. Powell and Kyle Lowry could be moved. Toronto is also on a seven-game losing streak, which should end on Monday vs. the Rockets, who haven’t won a game since Feb. 4. FVV, Siakam and Powell are good mid-range options with Boucher being a bit cheaper. You could ride some value with DeAndre’ Bembry ($4,000) or Aron Baynes ($3,400) or Stanley Johnson ($3,300), but Nick Nurse likes to keep his rotation tight even in blowouts.
Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Sacramento Kings, 7:30 p.m. ET
De’Aaron Fox ($9,100)
Jarrett Allen ($7,600)
Collin Sexton ($7,100)
Darius Garland ($6,600)
We’re going to run this stack back with Fox just incase the Cavaliers lay an egg in a smash spot. The Kings are an awful defensive team and the Cavs are at home. Allen, Sexton and Garland are great GPP plays. Fox has the highest upside of all the plays. We’re going to get a ton of value from various injuries to Giannis and LaMelo Ball (wrist) for Monday’s slate. So this give us a chance to pay up on a stack/game that likely will go overlooked with eight games going on.
