What you need to know for Sunday’s games

Numbers to be different: Rudy Gobert is rarely a fun DFS game as he has no advantages, and in a matchup against the Cavaliers’ greatness the first reaction is to look elsewhere. But is that true? He’s averaged 15.4 points and 12.8 rebounds against top-10 defenses this season, almost identical to his 12.7 points and 13.0 rebounds against all other teams. Boring and profitable… both can be true.

Support the Sixers: Keep an eye on the injury report, but for the past two seasons Philadelphia has been 6-2 overall when both they and their opponent go on the second night of a back-to-back.

Super Sabonis: Only four players have a five-game streak with at least 19 points, 5 rebounds, and 5 assists this season: Pascal Siakam, LeBron James, Luka Doncic, and Domantas Sabonis. Its versatility makes it a great DFS building block and support base against a Warriors team (front end of a back-to-back) that has so far been the ideal target: high-end pace, low-end defensive efficiency.

Less is more: May the Bulls cover tonight? If so, it’s not a bad play to combine that bet with the Game Under, as the Unders are 5-2 (2-3 if they haven’t covered the spread) in the seven games Chicago has covered the spread this season create). DeMar DeRozan’s production followed a similar trend this month: 12.7 PPG in losses and 33.0 PPG in gains.

Best bet: Under 218.5 points. The Nets will win this game, in part because they’ve become a new team on defense after the two big team events of the last few weeks, their head coaching move and Irving’s suspension.

Best Bet: Wizards -2.5 points. Both teams’ top players are expected to sit Sunday, with the Grizzlies listing Ja Morant, Desmond Bane and Jaren Jackson Jr. as doubtful, while Wizards coach Wes Unseld has said he’s not expecting Bradley Beal (Q, COVID-19). ) to play.
