PrizePicks NBA Player Projections: DeMar DeRozan Dragging Bulls to Postseason (March 22)

PrizePicks has some excellent player projections for DFS players to capitalize on as the NBA season draws to a close. This article will cover the best picks for the slate, with detailed analysis of each selection and our reasoning provided with assistance from Stokastic’s PrizePicks NBA Player Projections Tool.

PrizePicks NBA Player Projections | March 22

Troy Brown Jr. Over 3.5 Rebounds

Brown has been given a bigger role with the Lakers due to the absence of LeBron James and the team’s injury troubles. Brown has started every game since Feb. 28 and is averaging 29 minutes per game. During this stretch, he has averaged 3.5 rebounds per game. The Lakers will be relying on Brown to continue this trend, and Stokastic’s PrizePicks NBA Player Projections Tool projects him to get nearly five rebounds in today’s game. Brown is facing off against the Suns, who may struggle on the boards without Deandre Ayton. That should give Brown a good chance of grabbing over 3.5 rebounds.

Jimmy Butler Under 7.0 Rebounds

The Heat are playing in a slow-paced game against the Knicks, which will limit the number of possessions and opportunities for rebounds. Additionally, Stokastic’s PrizePicks NBA Player Projections Tool projects Butler for only 6.18 rebounds, which is well below his prop line of 7.0.

Furthermore, Butler has only had eight or more rebounds in two out of his last seven games. He is averaging 6.1 rebounds per game this season, which is right in line with Stokastic’s projection. Finally, while there are a couple of players listed as questionable on the Heat injury report, they will have a significant impact on Butler’s rebounding opportunities.

DeMar DeRozan Over 22.5 Points

DeRozan is averaging 25.4 points per game this season, and Stokastic’s PrizePicks NBA Player Projections Tool has him projected for 26.21 points tonight. His prop line is set at only 22.5, which is too low. In the last two weeks, DeRozan has been averaging an incredible 29.2 points per game. The Bulls are pushing for a playoff spot, and DeRozan has been playing heavy minutes in recent games, including three games with over 40 minutes played. This increased playing time will translate into more scoring opportunities for DeRozan.
