NBA First Basket Scorer Prop Bet Picks & Predictions: Magic vs Pacers

Bowl Bowl (+900)

I feel a bit riskier here to begin with, but with good reason. Bol has won 75% of opening odds over the past two seasons, with Orlando cashing in by scoring on their first possession 67% of the time this season.

Additionally, the Pacers allowed first field goals to come from a team’s center or forward 25 and 20 percent of the time, respectively, with the Magic having their center or forward scoring the first field goal 25 and 28 percent of the time. , respectively.

Of course, that’s a bit far. Bol doesn’t exactly have the highest usage, but he’s been posting strong numbers recently. I love that value, especially with Wendall Carter Jr. currently questionable.
