Follow along on Twitter (@julianedlow) for any potential updates — things can always change with lineup moves leading up to tipoff. Here’s what jumps out to me on DraftKings Sportsbook.

All odds provided by DraftKings Sportsbook and all odds subject to change.


The 2021-22 NBA Season gets underway on Tuesday night with a pair of games, before things really open up with a big slate of games on Wednesday. The NBA best bets article will be back and better than ever this season, featuring not only NBA plays, but also adding in some trends from this season once we get a couple of weeks of data.

Wednesday we’ll be back to business as usual with a normal article, but for Tuesday, dive into the Unreasonable Odds podcast below for a play on a side in each game tonight. Good luck this season!

Place your NBA bets at DraftKings Sportsbook or by downloading the DraftKings Sportsbook app.
