We charge towards the first set of weekend fixtures for the 2021/22 NBA regular season ahead of the best BetDeluxe basketball bets.

The best bets get underway with Philadelphia 76ers facing the Brooklyn Nets.

Brooklyn @ Philadelphia

October 23rd 10:30am

A game full of NBA marquees ensues when Philadelphia 76ers take on the star-laden Brooklyn Nets. 

It was contrasting results for both sides in their season-opening contests with the 76ers putting aside off-court issues to belt New Orleans, while the Nets were humbled by last year’s champion Milwaukee. 

What was most impressive about the 76ers 117-97 rout of the Pelicans was the ability to spread the load and less of a reliance on Joel Embiid to be the focal point. 

Four 76ers managed to score 20 points or more, while for Brooklyn, it struggled to match it offensively with the Bucks and the defensive woes come to the fore. 

The omission of Kyrie Irving is also continued cause for concern on the creativity front. 

Suggested Bet: Philadelphia head to head at $2.20

Suggested Same Game Multi: 
Leg 1: 76ers head to head 
Leg 2: K. Durant over 27.5 points
Combined odds = $3.75

Toronto @ Boston

October 23rd 10:30am

Boston will look to put the heartbreak of a double over-time loss against New York behind it when it faces Toronto this weekend.

Jayson Tatum was unrecognisably poor from the floor as he only managed seven fields goals from 30 attempts in the 138-134 defeat. 

Jaylen Brown was the highlight for the Celtics with 46 points, but it to little avail as the Celtics could not contain the man they traded out in the form of Evan Fournier. 

Toronto, meanwhile, is yet to play a regular season game, so we do not really have a great measuring stick as to what they are going to achieve this season. 

The market looks to have overplayed the Celtics here despite the solid enough pre-season form of the Raptors. 

Celtics probably win, but the line is the way to go.  

Suggested Bet: Toronto Raptors +6.5 at $1.92

Oklahoma City @ Houston

October 23rd 11:00am

Josh Giddey lines up for the Oklahoma City Thunder when they face the Houston Rockets. 

Giddey made an impressionable start to his NBA career with some nice play-making moves despite the loss to Utah Jazz earlier this week. 

The 20-year-old Australian will have plenty of attention on him and might just very well find himself winning his first NBA game against a Rockets team who looked vulnerable in its first game of the season. 

The Rockets were well beaten and do look slightly under the the odds in this second despite being at home. 

Suggested Bet: Oklahoma City Thunder +1.5 at $1.91

Suggested Same Game Multi:
Leg 1: Oklahoma City Thunder +1.5
Leg 2: Total points scored under 223.5
Leg 3: J. Giddey 8+ points
Combined odds = $5
