After roughly 71 days, which makes it the shortest off-season in professional sports history, the NBA is back! We have a new contender in town in the Brooklyn Nets, taking on a former contender in the Golden State Warriors. Right off the bat, Kevin Durant [O/U 24.5 Points] will be making his debut for Brooklyn. Durant missed all of last season, but before that, he averaged AT LEAST 25 PPG in 11 seasons before then, so he is always capable of hitting the over on his player prop betting line. Joining Durant is All-Star PG Kyrie Irving [O/U 24.5 Points], who managed to have led the Nets in scoring last season, averaging 27.4 points per game. Similar to Durant, Irving is always capable of hitting the over on his player prop betting line. Spencer Dinwiddie [O/U 12.5 Points] is another key member of this high-powered Nets offense. Dinwiddie averaged over 20 PPG last season, so he is more than capable of hitting the over on his player prop betting line of 12.5 points. It looks like DeAndre Jordan [O/U 10.5 Rebounds] will be the chairman of the boards for this Nets team. Jordan has averaged 10 or more rebounds per game in each of the last 8 seasons, so he can easily hit the over on his player prop betting line tonight.
On the other side of the ball, the Warriors are entering this game depleted without Draymond Green and Klay Thompson. Steph Curry [O/U 4.5 Three-Pointers Made], Curry has averaged over 5 three-pointers made per game in years past, so there’s a good chance he hits the over on his player prop betting line. Andrew Wiggins [O/U 16.5 Points] averaged 21.8 points per game last season and can easily hit the over on his player prop betting line tonight with this depleted Warriors team. Kelly Oubre Jr. [O/U 1.5 Three-Pointers Made] closes out this Warriors team. Oubre Jr. shot over 35% from beyond the arc last season, and if the Warriors want to be competitive tonight, he will have to hit the over on his player prop betting line.
