NBA First Basket Prop Pick: Domantas Sabonis, Keegan Murray
|Odds||Sabonis (+400) · Murray (+2000)|
|Time||8 p.m. ET|
The Oklahoma City Thunder host the Sacramento Kings Tuesday night in a rematch from Sunday’s game where the Kings won 124-115.
Domantas Sabonis (38% opening tip win rate) will likely face off against Jaylin Williams (27% win rate) on the opening tip-off. These centers have jumped against each other twice this season, and each center has won a tip-off.
In Sunday’s game, Luguentz Dort stole the opening tip and missed a layup, followed by a Harrison Barnes first basket. Josh Giddey made the first team field goal for the Thunder. In the other game this season between these teams, Josh Giddey cashed the first basket bet while Keegan Murray made the first team field goal for the Kings.
Sabonis has been hot lately in early possessions, scoring the first team field goal in six of the last 10 games for the Kings. On the season, he has scored the first team field goal in 33% of games started.
Murray has averaged 12 points a game this season but has exploded in his two matchups against the Thunder this year, scoring 49 points in two games.
I’ll take Sabonis and Murray to score first tonight in this game as we try to cash a first basket play for the third day in a row.
Pick: Domantas Sabonis First Basket +400 | Play to +325 (0.75 Units)
Pick: Keegan Murray First Basket +2000 | Play to +1400 (0.25 Units)
