OKBET NBA Betting Odds: Thursday (10/27) NBA First Basket Odds, Picks & Predictions

Tonight in the NBA, we will be covering four different games. This indicates that just four different players will be able to earn the opening basket in a game that will take place tonight.

The task of determining who those players will be falls on our shoulders. The following is a list of our top picks for the first basket market in the NBA for the 27th of October.

The Best Odds, Picks, and Predictions for the First Basket in the NBA

Kevin Durant

Beginning in the middle of October of the previous year, the Brooklyn Nets have opened the scoring in sixty percent of their games, while also receiving over fifty percent of the tips.

Kevin Durant had been the most productive first-basket scorer for the Nets during the previous season. He had amassed ten first-baskets for the team, with six of those shots being first shots.

Even if the Nets have a higher probability of getting the first shot, Durant still has a better chance of scoring the first basket than Luka Doncic does, as Doncic has a +330 odds while Durant has a +600 odds.

On the other hand, Kyrie Irving did not start many games last season by scoring the opening basket. Even though he didn’t participate in very many games, he never really looked for his shot early on in any of them.

In tonight’s game versus Dallas, my money is on Kevin Durant to score the opening basket.

Bet: Kevin Durant (+650 at OKBET)

Jimmy Butler  Bam Adebayo

This will be the first meeting between the Miami Heat and the Golden State Warriors in the 2018–19 NBA season. During the previous year’s competition, Jimmy Butler and Caleb Martin were the first two Miami Heat players to score baskets for their team.

The odds of Miami taking first place in this competition are significantly better. During the previous season, they won 53% of the tip and went on to secure 53% of the first baskets.

Bam Adebayo started the scoring with 13 first-basket tallies and took the opening shot nine times. During the same time period, Jimmy Butler scored nine first baskets, all of which came on his very first attempt.

For the Warriors, the odds of winning are currently lying at +490, with Steph Curry sitting at +600 for Butler and Adebayo. However, if you are interested in following patterns and analytics, Miami is the team to bet on. They will have a greater opportunity to score points if they go first.

Let’s start the scoring by putting the ball in the hands of Jimmy Butler and Bam Adebayo. When one of them gets it, it will be to our advantage.

Bet: Jimmy Butler (+600 at OKBET)
Bet: Bam Adebayo (+600 at OKBET)

Desmond Bane

During the previous season, the Kings were not very successful in winning the tip, as they earned just 40% of all tips and took the first shot just 39% of the time. On the other hand, Memphis was successful in 62% of their initial basket attempts, 71% of their first shot attempts, and 72% of their winning tips.

In two of their most recent three matchups against the Kings, Desmond Bane was the one to score the first basket. During the previous season, Memphis defeated the Kings in every single tip.

Bane started the game strong, scoring 14 first baskets on 15 first shot attempts. While this was going on, Jaren Jackson scored 12 first baskets, but it took him 24 shots to get there.

In spite of the fact that Ja Morant had the highest likelihood, he only scored five first baskets during the previous season, whilst Jackson, Bane, and Dillon Brooks each had more.

I’m going to take my chances with Bane, who has a strong track record of success while playing against Sacramento.

Bet: Desmond Bane (+650 at OKBET)
