NBA Opening Night is back for the 2021-2022 regular season. There will be two games in action tonight between the Brooklyn Nets vs the Milwaukee Bucks and also the Golden State Warriors vs the Los Angeles Lakers on TNT. Everyone who likes to gamble each night in the NBA loves to bet on game props. Here are some game props to look at for tonight:
Brooklyn Nets vs Milwaukee Bucks: Kevin Durant: Over 30.5 points: The money line for this on BETUS is 1.87 and it would be the same if you took the under 30.5 points at 1.87. Taking over 30.5 points for Kevin Durant feels like easy money for tonight’s game. Durant scored over 30 points against the Milwaukee Bucks for most of the second-round series games last postseason. Kevin Durant is one of the best scorers in the NBA.
James Harden: Over 42.5 Pts+Rebs+Assists: The money line on BETUS is 1.87 and the under 42.5 is also the same money line. With this prop, it means that James Harden will combine for over 42.5 total points with all of these categories. An example would be 30 points, six rebounds, and 12 assists. With James Harden being the primary point guard with Kyrie Irving out until further notice, I feel like this is another slam dunk prop for tonight.
Joe Harris: Under 15.5 Pts+Rebs: The money line on BETUS is 1.87. The over 15.5 prop is also a 1.87 money line on BETUS. Joe Harris struggled big time to hit shots against the Milwaukee Bucks last postseason. He usually doesn’t go in the paint to grab a ton of rebounds either.
Giannis Antetokounmpo: Over 35.5 Pts+Assts: The money line for the over is 1.91 and the money line for the under is 1.83. I feel like with how bad the Brooklyn Nets interior defense is, Giannis Antetokounmpo is going to get 30 points alone off of it. Antetokounmpo is going to dish it out because he is also an elite passer.
Jrue Holiday: Under 29.5 Pts+Rebs+Assts: The under for this prop is 1.91 on the money line and the over is 1.83. Jrue Holiday didn’t shoot particularly well last season against the Brooklyn Nets. This is a good bet because I feel like Holiday will not score a bunch of points tonight even if he were to grab nine rebounds and record eight assists.
Khris Middleton: Over 28.5 Pts+Rebs: The over and under for this prop is 1.83 on the money line. This is a slam dunk because Khris Middleton is a much better scorer at home than he is on the road. I could see Middleton scoring somewhere between 22-25 points tonight and also grabbing at least six rebounds.
Golden State Warriors vs Los Angeles Lakers: Steph Curry: Under 33.5 points. The money line for this -105 and for the over, it is -125. I have a feeling Steph Curry will score his points tonight, but the Los Angeles Lakers defense is too good to allow Steph Curry to reach over the 33.5 points total.
Andrew Wiggins: Under 18.5 points. This under on this is -110 money line and the over on this is -120 on BETUS. Wiggins is supposed to be the second scorer on this basketball team, but he has struggled to shoot from the field for the Golden State Warriors.
Jordan Poole: Over 21.5 points + rebounds: The money line is -110 for the over and the money line is -120 for the under. Jordan Poole has developed into a solid scorer for the Golden State Warriors and Steph Curry is going to need help tonight. Poole is a better athlete than you think and I think he will grab a few rebounds tonight. I could see him scoring 17 points and grabbing five rebounds.
Lebron James: Double-Double: Yes +250. This is free money with this betting prop. Are you kidding me? How in the high seas are the odds that low for tonight’s game? I guarantee you that Lebron James wants to prove that he is not washed up. James is a double-double machine when healthy. The no double-double odds for this prop is -400.
Russell Westbrook: Over 37.5 PTS+REBS+ASTS: The money line is -115 on BETUS and it is also the same for the under. Westbrook is a stat-padding machine and he will always give it all every single night. Russell Westbrook is always a threat for a triple-double every time he touches the basketball court.
Anthony Davis: Under 32.5 PTS+REBS: The money line is -115 on BETUS and the same goes for the over. Anthony Davis I don’t think will have any more than 20 points and 10 rebounds tonight for the Los Angeles Lakers. Davis may be the third option on this Los Angeles Lakers basketball team.
