NBA Tips and Multi bet of the Weekend October 28-29

The first weekend of the NBA season is upon us, and with it comes a huge slate of games which will see no less than 18 games take place over the course of Saturday and Sunday. Invariably that means that there are a whole lot of betting options over the course of the weekend, and on this page we are going to take a look at some of your best bets to include in the first NBA weekend multi of the year. 

Oklahoma City Thunder @ Cleveland Cavaliers

October 28, 10:40am AEDT, Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse 

Both the Cavaliers and the Thunder got their seasons off to strong starts in their season-openers, the Cavs beating the Nets by a point and the Thunder dismantling the Bulls by 20 in a hugely impressive display. Both have talented young rosters and will be hoping to be competing for a spot in the playoffs this season, but while OKC probably has the brighter future – particularly given their raft of high draft picks in the coming seasons – the Cavaliers remain ahead of them, at least for the time being. Purely through the natural progression of their suite of young stars the Thunder should improve this season, and the addition of Chet Holmgren will help too, but the fact remains that they won 40 games last year and didn’t make the playoffs while the Cavs were a 51-win team. That was also in the first season shared by backcourt duo of Donovan Mitchell and Darius Garland while it was also only Evan Mobley’s second season, so they too have plenty of reason to expect to be better this season than last. What’s more, the Cavs were brilliant at home last year, where they went 31-10. Bright as the Thunder’s future is, Cleveland should be winning more games than them this year, and on a home court at which they’re very tough to beat, the line of -3.5 looks pretty tempting. I’ll be taking the Cavs to cover the -3.5 line at $1.90 with PlayUp

Orlando Magic @ Portland Trail Blazers

October 28, 1.10pm AEDT, Moda Center 

The Magic profile as one team capable of taking a solid step forward this year. They’ve got one of the youngest starting lineups in the league, and nearly all of them should be improving this season, with Paolo Banchero and Franz Wagner in particular capable of leading them to playoff contention. Their 30-point win in their season-opener was evidence of as much. The Blazers, meanwhile, are not going to be very good. In their first season without Damian Lillard they’ll be reliant on guys like rookie Scoot Henderson, and Anfernee Simons – who is talented but isn’t used to running a team. They were smoked by the Clippers in their season opener, and while the Magic don’t quite have the talent or experience of LAC, they should be able to win this one without too many problems and cover the line of -2.5 at $1.90 with BlueBet

Golden State Warriors @ Sacramento Kings

October 28, 1.10pm AEDT, Golden 1 Center 

Both the Warriors and the Kings can seriously score. The Warriors, of course, have long boasted one of the most talented offences of all time, and even with their stars well into their 30s they will still be one of the highest scoring teams this season. The Kings, too, courtesy in no small part due to the lightning pace at which they play, were the highest scoring team in the league last season (the Warriors were second), with 120.7 points per game. That would point to a high scoring game on Saturday Australian time, but the bookies have accounted for that and then some. The total for this game has been set at a huge 240.5, and while the temptation is to take the over given the scoring potency of these teams, history would suggest the under is a great bet. In the four games between these two sides last season, only one passed this total, while the season prior that was at none of four, and most of them weren’t close. Harking back to the 2020-21 season, just one game between the Warriors and the Kings has seen 241 points or over scored, which means that under 240.5 total game points at $1.89 with GetSetBet looks like a solid play.
