Tuesday’s Best NBA First Basket Bets

Odds courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook

Atlanta Hawks  vs. Cleveland Cavaliers

The Hawks are fighting to be .500 this season. They are 37-38 and trying to get the win tonight. The good news for bettors is that the only thing that matters in first-basket betting is who scores first. The critical part of first-basket betting is who gets first possession. The Cavaliers have gotten first possession both times they have played the Hawks this season. 

The next part of first-basket betting is a player that consistently scores. That player is Donovan Mitchell. He has been one of the most consistent scorers this season. He averages 27.4 points per game and can score from multiple spots on the court. 

Bet: Donovan Mitchell (+430)

Washington Wizards vs. Boston Celtics

The Celtics are one of the best teams in the NBA this season. They can do it on both sides of the court. Neither of these teams wins the first possession consistently. That means the Celtics are the most likely team to score first because they can defend and get a chance to shoot if they do not win the first possession. 

Jayson Tatum is the best scorer in the NBA this season. He is the number one option for the Boston Celtic. That means he takes a high volume of shots. Tatum’s shooting volume and ability to create quality shots give him high betting value tonight. 

Bet: Jayson Tatum (+480)
