After a great doubleheader last night to start the NBA season, we will now be seeing the other 26 teams in action tonight. To kick things off tonight, we will be seeing the Eastern Conference Champions, Miami Heat, take on Orlando Magic. The Heat seemed to have overachieved last season but now enter this year as legitimate title contenders. The Heat are led by Jimmy “Buckets” Butler [O/U 19.5], who managed to have hit the overo n his player prop betting line in 4 of the 5 NBA Finals games. Joining Butler is 2nd-year sensation Tyler Herro [O/U 13.5 Points], who averaged exactly 13.5 PPG last season, and he only got better, watch out for the over on his player prop betting line. Someone to watch out for in the opposition is Nikola Vucevic [O/U 22.5 Points], who in a 5 game series against the Bucks in the bubble, he scored over 30 points per game and hit the over on his player prop betting line three times.
Another marquee game tonight is the reigning #1 seed in the Eastern Conference, the Milwaukee Bucks taking on the Boston Celtics. 2x MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo [O/U 44.5 Points + Rebounds + Assists], Giannis averaged a combined 48.7 last season so expect him to hit the over on his player prop betting line tonight. Joining Giannis on this ELITE Bucks team is Khris Middleton [O/U 2.5 Three-Pointers Made], who shot 41.5% beyond the arc last season, so the Middleton hitting the on over his player prop betting line seems highly likely. On the other side of the ball, we have the Celtics, led by Jayson Tatum [O/U 25.5 Points]. Tatum really stepped the last time we saw him in the Eastern Conference Finals, hitting the over on his player prop betting line in three of the games. Jaylen Brown [O/U 20.5 Points] joins Tatum in Celtics that are supposed to play BIG offensively. Brown was great when we last saw him, hitting the over in his player prop betting line in the last 5 games in the eastern conference finals.
Closing out this slate of Eastern Conference marquee matchups is the Washington Wizards taking on the Philadelphia 76ers. Russell Westbrook [O/U 22.5 Point] makes his debut for the Wizards tonight. Westbrook averaged 27.2 PPG on the Rockets last season, so watch out for the over on his player prop betting line. Real-deal Bradley Beal [O/U 27.5 Points] joins Westbrook as a great scoring threat. Beal averaged 30.5 PPG last season, making the over on his player prop betting line seem incredibly likely. Ben Simmons [O/U 15.5 Points] leads the home team Sixers. Simmons has averaged north of 15.5 PPG in all three seasons of his career, so the over on his player prop betting line seems highly likely. Joining Simmons is his sidekick in Joel Embiid [O/U 37.5 Points + Rebounds.] Embiid is one of the top centers in this league but it seems as if his play dropped last season, averaging a combined 34.6 per game compared to 41.1 the season before. If Embiid can return to his old form then the over on his player prop betting line seems highly likely.
