FanDuel Sportsbook: Tuesday Best Bets

FanDuel Sportsbook: Tuesday Best Bets

This article is part of our FanDuel Sportsbook series.

Alex Barutha: Shai Gilgeous-Alexander over 1.5 threes (-106) vs. Warriors – FanDuel, 2:17 PM CT

This is a bet based purely on volume. SGA is averaging 6.3 three-point attempts per game in the first three contests of the season. He's shot poorly (15.8%), but I expect that to correct sooner than later.

Nick Whalen: Golden State Warriors -9.0 (-114) at Oklahoma City Thunder – FanDuel Sportsbook, 1:00 PM CT

The Thunder made Sunday's loss to the Sixers look a little more respectable than it really was, but make no mistake: this is the worst team in the league in the early going. Oklahoma City is 29th in offensive rating, 29th in defensive rating and owns by far the worst Net Rating in the league at -22.3 – nearly eight points per 100 possessions worse than the 29th-ranked team (Orlando). I also like the UNDER 223.0 points (-110) in this game. Golden State should be able to score at will, but even if the Warriors push into the 120s, I don't trust Oklahoma City to hold up its end of the bargain.

Jacob Lebowitz: Warriors ML vs Thunder (-420) + Lakers ML vs Spurs (-136), 2 Team Parlay (+114) – FanDuel, 11:33AM

I think this parlay is as easy as it gets. The Warriors have taken down the Lakers, Clippers and Kings en route to their hot 3-0 start. While the Thunder could arguably be one of the easiest opponents the Warriors play all season. The Warriors should have no problem winning Tuesday, while the Lakers may have a bit more trouble. The Lakers will be taking on a Spurs team that lost close games to the Nuggets and Bucks, while they've beaten the Magic. Although the Lakers have had a rough start to the season, I truly believe LeBron James will do anything to prevent his team from falling to 1-3, especially at the hands of a non-contending Spurs team. 

Michael Spero: New York Knicks -2 against the 76ers (-110)FanDuel Sportsbook 1:33 PM

After a surprising loss to the Magic on Sunday, the Knicks are facing off against the 76ers on Tuesday. Philadelphia comes into the matchup 2-1, but are still without Ben Simmons for the time being. In games without Simmons last season the 76ers went 7-7 and they have a tough matchup on the road against the Knicks. I think New York takes this victory in this Eastern Conference clash.
