5 Stats to Know: NBA DFS March 9


When it comes to NBA, we have tons of advanced stats, tools and information to dive into. This article will present you with five actionable stats in order to help you with the night’s NBA DFS slate of games. 

Let’s get into some actionable stats for Thursday’s slate of games that will help you find top plays and/or games in order to build your best lineups.


1.  28th

The Detroit Pistons rank 28th in defensive efficiency this year, while the Hornets also rank 21st. This game has an implied total of 225, but with two bad defenses, and two teams who play in the top 13 in pace, we could still see home points scored in this game. 

2. 30th

In our Advanced DvP tool, the Hornets rank dead last against rebounders, while also ranking 27th against skilled centers. Those are two traits that both James Wiseman and Marvin Bagley have. Jalen Duren also has the rebounder trait. 

3. 26th

The Pacers are currently 26th in the NBA against skilled centers, while also ranking 24th against primary ball handlers and 25th against rebounders, three of Alperen Sengun‘s traits in our aDvP tool. 


4. 4

Tyrese Haliburton has four traits in our aDvP tool, and the Rockets no higher than 21st in any of them, while also being dead last against primary ball handlers and crafty finishers. 

5. 28th

The Kings are 28th in points allowed, while also ranking 29th in FG% allowed and 28th in 3PT% allowed. This sets up to be a god matchup for the Knicks to put up some points, and if Jalen Brunson remains out, we could see a ton of fantasy production here.
