While football will continue to take center stage for the next few months, those empty Tuesday and Wednesday nights are no more. The 2021-22 NBA season kicks off tonight with two high-profile matchups. First, the Milwaukee Bucks will raise their championship banner before facing off against the Brooklyn Nets. The nightcap is also a star-studded showdown as the Golden State Warriors take on the Los Angeles Lakers. The NBA betting opportunities for opening night expand beyond the game lines themselves. With a little help from the Awesemo OddsShopper and NBA Betting Player Props Tools, let’s look at some of the best NBA betting tips tonight.
Best NBA Player Props & Betting Picks Tonight
Joe Harris Over 10.5 Points (-150) at DraftKings Sportsbook
Harris can score a bunch of points in a hurry thanks to his prowess from beyond the arc. He shot 46.4% from 3-point range last year, which ranked second in the NBA. Brooklyn’s high-scoring offense could be even better this year with a healthy Kevin Durant and a full season of James Harden. The Bucks may be the reigning champions, but they allowed opponents to shoot nearly 38% from beyond the arc last season. Awesemo’s NBA Betting Player Props Tool projects Harris to score 13.78 points tonight and gives this over a 76% chance of hitting. Furthermore, the OddsShopper Tool shows that Harris’ point total is as much as 2 whole points higher elsewhere in the market.
Draymond Green Over 6.5 Points (-108) at FanDuel Sportsbook
As the Warriors’ glue guy and do-it-all utility man, Green’s NBA betting points total is identical to his rebounds line for tonight’s season opener. The Lakers were one of the league’s best defensive teams a season ago. Their ability to key in on Golden State’s primary scorer, Stephen Curry, saw Green take on more of a scoring role in matchups against them last season. Awesemo’s NBA Betting Player Props Tool projects Green to score 7.84 points in tonight’s contest. The expected ROI on the best price, offered at FanDuel Sportsbook, is a solid 23%.
Carmelo Anthony Under 3.5 Rebounds (-134) at FanDuel Sportsbook
After reviving his playing career in Portland, many are excited to see what Anthony can do with the Los Angeles Lakers. Of course, Anthony’s game has always been more centered around scoring than cleaning up on the glass. He averaged just 3.1 rebounds per game in nearly 25 minutes a night with the Blazers last season. Awesemo’s NBA Betting Player Props Tool projects him for 2.57 rebounds in his Lakers debut tonight. Thus a play to the under on this line of 3.5 rebounds is projected to hit 76% of the time and comes with an expected ROI of 32%.
