NBA Tip-Off Tuesday: Mims picks Sixers vs Celtics, Lakers vs Warriors – Maxey, Tatum, Curry, LeBron props
The NBA opens its season tonight with a doubleheader on TNT. The Philadelphia Sixers faces the Boston Celtics in the opening game. Boston is the home team, and they are favored 2.0. The total for the game is 214.5
Prop Bets: Tyrese Maxey over 17.5 points. The price is -127. Take Maxey over. Jayson Tatum over 23.5 points. The price is -131. Grab Tatum to go over.
The Selection: The Celtics will be at a disadvantage without the presence of their suspended coach, Ime Udoka. The Sixers are a deeper team this year and have a better team defensively than last season. Joel Embiid dominates Boston and will do it in a statement game to the league that the Sixers are a top contender in the East. Sixers take the game, and the total goes over.
The second game has the Los Angeles Lakers against the Golden State Warriors. The Warriors are the home team. The Warriors are favored by 7 and the total is 225.0.
Prop Bets: Stephen Curry over 22.5 points. Take Curry over. The price is -123. Lebron James over 8.5 rebounds. The price is +110. Take him over.
The Selection: Warriors open up strong with the addition of James Wiseman to the core group that won the Championship last year. The Lakers are still trying to figure out team chemistry and will not play defense as a unit. Take the Warriors and the under.
