The NBA season is officially back and we’re pumped! The opening night of action kicks off with the Brooklyn Nets hosting the Golden State Warriors.

Two teams coming into the season with their star man back from injury, with former teammates Kevin Durant and Stephy Curry both looking extremely solid in the preseason.

As you’ll see in our NBA Bet Hub predictions, our predictive analytics model has the Nets as the much more likely to win in what should be an entertaining offensive clash  πŸ‘‡

πŸ’ͺ Spread

The sportsbooks have installed the Nets as 7-point favorites for the opening game of the season, and our model believes that may be a little harsh on Steph and his Warriors, even without Klay Thompson. 


πŸ’΅ Moneyline

A moneyline bet lets you ignore the spread and just pick who you think will win straight up. In this case, a bet on the Nets won’t pay out a lot but we do have them as the most likely winner by a fair bit (71% probability). If you’re down for an underdog bet in the opening game of the season, the Warriors look to be underrated by the books.


πŸš€ Over/Under

It’s opening night and we have two of the best offensive teams in the league going at it, so it’s no surprise that the total match points has been set at 231.5. But in saying that, our projections have this one falling just short, with our total score sitting at 230 at the time of writing.


πŸ€ Dimers' take-out

We should be in for an incredible night of basketball to kick off the season, and being able to see KD and Steph back on the court in a competitive sense will get every NBA fan excited!
