Brandon Ingram - NBA Betting Tips

Betseeker’s expert tipsters have you covered for the best NBA tips and predictions for every game of the NBA season.

As NBA fans we are truly blessed on Tuesday, with all 30 teams playing on the one day. There’s plenty of value in this extended preview of a truly wonderful day of basketball.

Best Bet

Celtics @ Grizzlies (1:00pm)

Desmond Bane
Over 19.5 Points

Bane started the season slowly but has turned it around in a hurry, posting some huge numbers for the Memphis Grizzlies.

He only averaged 14.7 points in his first three games of the season shooting the ball at 24.5% from the field, but since he has improved to average 29.5 points per game shooting the ball at 54.5% from the field and scoring 28+ points in five of his last six games.

Wings have got a hold of the Celtics this season with RJ Barrett (27) and DeMar DeRozan (46) the last two to do so. Bane should easily cover the 19.5 points line, while the $4 for 30+ points is outstanding value on recent form.

Next Best

Suns @ 76ers (12:00pm)

Mikal Bridges
Over 12.5 Points

Averaging 14.9 points per game this season, Mikal Bridges’ points line sits at 12.5 for Phoenix’s clash with the 76ers off the back of two quiet outings against the Blazers.

Bridges played a season-low minutes in the last game against Portland in a blowout, finishing with 11 points, and if he does play an extra 8 minutes to his season average of 35 minutes per game, he should have no problem covering the 12.5 points line.

Prior to the Portland double, Bridges covered 12.5 points in six of his first seven games of the season so this mark looks very achievable.

Knicks @ Timberwolves (1:15pm)

Karl-Anthony Towns
Under 25.5 Points

Karl-Anthony Towns’ offensive output should not be impacted by Rudy Gobert’s absence for Minnesota.

KAT averages just 22 points per game this season and finished with 25 points against the Rockets last game, but Houston is one of the worst defences in the league and Minnesota duly piled on 129.

Don’t expect this output against the Knicks. New York is the best team in the NBA at defending centres, limiting their points output by 39% this season. Covering the 25.5 points at just 30% this season, expect another quiet game from KAT.

Thunder @ Pistons (11:30am)

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander
Over 28.5 Points

A huge points line for Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, but against this Detroit outfit it wouldn’t surprise to see the Canadian go for 40 which is paying $7.35.

SGA has scored 30+ in five of his eight games this season, and although he produced a quiet one last game against the Bucks with 18 points, Milwaukee is the best team in the NBA at defending guards this season.

Detroit on the other hand is not. They’re the easiest team for point guards to score against this season at 24% above average, and with SGA splitting point duties with Josh Giddey we should see both players take full advantage.

Value Bet

Pelicans @ Pacers (11:45am)

New Orleans 11+

They’ve only got a 5-4 record to start the season, but if you dig deeper the Pelicans have had an awfully difficult schedule and will find some relief when they face the Pacers.

New Orleans have recorded wins over Brooklyn, Dallas, LA Clippers and Golden State this season, with losses coming to quality opposition in Atlanta and Phoenix – both on the road. Three of those losses have come in OT.

Although they on the road again when they face the Pacers, they should feast on one of the worst defences in the NBA, especially with Brandon Ingram with a couple of games under his belt. Like the -5.5 line and 11+ margin for the Pelicans.

Nuggets @ Spurs (1:30pm)

Denver 11+

The Nuggets literally just faced the Spurs the other day – the result, Denver winning by 25 points.

It’s been a strong start to the season for the Spurs, one no one saw coming, but Denver is the real deal this season and they’re starting to fire.

The Nuggets have won four of their last five, with all four wins by 11+ points. Although this is back at San Antonio, it shouldn’t matter. Denver will be far too good.
