Check out our expert NBA tips for the best five games of the week, starting 30th October (note: times are in AEDT):
Game 1 – Utah Jazz @ Denver Nuggets, Tuesday 31st October, 12.10pm
The Denver Nuggets have quickly reminded the NBA world just why they were the NBA Champions last season. Their 3-0 start to the season has also seen them cover the spread in each game, thanks in large to an offence that simply finds ways to execute against any set defence.
That said, this might be the time to oppose them as they return home for the second night of a back-to-back after playing in Oklahoma City yesterday. The altitude won’t impact the visiting Jazz as much as it does other teams given that they’re the only other team who own a similar home advantage and Utah’s fast ball movement on offence should take advantage of some tired Denver legs.
The Jazz went 2-2 in their four-game season series with the Nuggets last season, and I’d expect them to again keep this one competitive. Grab the points on the handicap for Utah as they look to rediscover their best basketball in the early parts of the season.
Game 2 – New York Knicks @ Cleveland Cavaliers, Wednesday 1st November, 10.40am
The Knicks and Cavaliers take the floor in a playoff rematch that will mean a lot to both sides in the early parts of the new season. Cleveland has had to deal with multiple injuries to start this campaign and could again be missing key pieces in their rotation for this one. Darius Garland and Jarrett Allen have both been listed out, while Donovan Mitchell also has a questionable tag next to his name.
The Knicks have had a tough schedule to start and while the travel disadvantage is notable, they should be able to take care of an understrength Cavs team that they rag-dolled in the playoffs last season. Expect another strong defensive showing from New York in this one as they bounce back to winning ways against a conference opponent.
Game 3 – Washington Wizards @ Atlanta Hawks, Thursday 2nd November, 10.40am
The Quinn Snyder Hawks are beginning to look a lot like the Quinn Snyder Jazz from a few seasons ago. Their offense is predicated on heavy pick-and-roll action that leads to plenty of lobs to the basket for primary big man Clint Capela. The 29-year-old is averaging 13.3 points and 12.7 rebounds in the first three games of the season and has recorded a double-double in every game so far.
It’s unlikely that anything Washington does will prevent him from recording another one in this matchup either. The Wizards rank as the worst defensive team in the NBA and in what is projected to be one of the fastest paced games of the season, the opportunity for open dunks and second chance points on offensive rebounds is as high as you’ll see this season for Capela. Until this market is priced accurately this remains an auto-play for any and all Hawks games.
Game 4 – Toronto Raptors @ Philadelphia 76ers, Friday 3rd November, 10.10am
Nick Nurse will face his former team for the second time this season after recording a 114-107 win in Toronto last week. The Sixers took advantage of a schedule disadvantage for the Raptors that night and will again have that same luxury in this matchup as they come off a three-day rest period while the Raptors will be playing their third game in four nights.
Philadelphia has a significant talent advantage in this match up and when coupled with the schedule advantage there should be little worry for them here. Tyrese Maxey had a huge game in Toronto and should do so again in what remains a favourable matchup for the guard. Expect another double digit win as the Sixers take advantage of some tired minds and legs.
Game 5 – Dallas Mavericks @ Denver Nuggets, Saturday 4th November, 1.10pm
The Mavs will once again be reliant on the individual brilliance of Luka Doncic and Kyrie Irving this season in order to generate wins and a marquee matchup will bring out the best in their Slovenian superstar once again. In four games against the Nuggets last season, Doncic averaged 28.5 points, 8.8 rebounds and 10.0 assists. All those came without the help of Irving whose presence should help open the floor for him rather than take away opportunity for scoring.
The Nuggets deliberately tried to push pace in their games at home to Dallas last season, with both games featuring over 226 points. If that’s again the case, then Doncic will be allowed to pick apart in transition and find the matchups he wants down the floor. Despite a high total forecasted I’d be looking toward Doncic going over his Points, Rebounds and Assists total here.
