Our Picks:

G. Antetokounmpo Total Points Over 30.5 (-110)

Opening night is big for many players, including the reigning NBA Finals MVP. Over his last four opening night games, Antetokounmpo has scored 35, 30, 25, and 37 for an opening night average of 31.7 points per game. Central to Milwaukee’s playmaking schemes, he should clear 30.5.

K. Durant Total PTS+AST+REB Under 43.5 (-110)

There are no more questions about what Kevin Durant can do. One of the best scorers in the NBA, he could easily clear 43.5 off of his points total alone. So why take the under? Game one of the NBA season will be about defining the Nets’ playmaking without Irving on the court. Plus with Griffin, Aldridge, and Millsap in his frontcourt, it’s been a while since Durant has had such capable rebounding partners.

J. Harden Assists Over 9.5 (+100)

James Harden is a top tier playmaker, collecting 69 assists over his past five season-opening matches. Already leading the Nets in assists per game, and bolstered by the fact that Irving will be unavailable to take playmaking duties away, we expect Harden to blow past 9.5 assists against the Bucks.

Golden State Warriors at Los Angeles Lakers

Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors look for revenge for their 2021 Play-In loss against LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers.

Our Picks:

L. James Total Points Under 23.5 (-105)

LeBron James has all the ability to clear 23.5 points in his opening game, but the veteran’s responsibilities don’t lie in the scoring department. Davis, Westbrook, and Anthony are just some of the mouths that James needs to feed for the Lakers’ success. Odds are on James taking playmaking duties over scoring duties.

A. Davis Total Rebounds Over 8.5 (+100)

Not a massive rebounder for his size and position, but Anthony Davis will have a favorable matchup going up against Draymond Green and Kevon Looney. With his full-time transition to center, clearing 8.5 should be a given for Davis.

D. Green Total PTS+AST+REB Over 20.5 (-115)

Draymond Green is a true all-arounder. He can contribute on every area of the court, with his scoring likely being the weakest part of his game. Regardless, Green is a playmaker and defender that could clear 20.5 without scoring a single point. Starved for scoring options early into the season, Green’s usage should be high enough to help him clear 20.5.
