TNT knows that all you want to do the night after Halloween is sit on the couch and eat a fun-sized candy either left or stolen from your trick-or-treater. And so they gave us their third double header on a Tuesday night of the year, with the Chicago Bulls visiting the suddenly undeveloped Brooklyn Nets, and the Minnesota Timberwolves on their way to battle the Phoenix Suns.
Jack Vaughn is the acting head coach tonight, but expect the Nets to inquire with suspended Celtics coach Im Oduka, Quinn Snyder, among others. Boston will allow Odoka to leave for another job.

Jack Vaughn will coach the Nets tonight, with Steve Nash possibly blasting champagne bottles in celebration. Although it looks like the Nets head coach job will be Ime Udoka soon enough. With all the controversy from Kyrie Irving’s anti-Semitic movie recommendations to Ben Simmons’ battle with the referees to the now-fulfilled “he or I” ultimatum with Kevin Durant and Nash, it’s important to remember that the Brooklyn Nets are still a basketball team, sort of .
Currently, the net is 2-5 with the worst defensive rating in the league. By all accounts, the situation has been miserable so far, so the team’s feelings couldn’t get any worse after the head coach was fired. Meanwhile, the stifling bulls are 3-4, though Zach Lavigne and his aching knee will play tonight. So far, they’ve relied heavily on Lavigne and Demar DeRozan’s scoring, and may be without their fourth scorer, Ayo Dosunmo, currently listed as “Doubtful” – just like all of Brooklyn’s decisions in the past three years!
Meanwhile, the Suns ditched their bad vibes to start the season with a record 5-1 score and a 12.5 net leading league rating. They’ll try to keep it up against two towers, Rudy Gobert and Karl-Anthony Towns, who look like modern-day parishioners and Machels, if Kevin McHale is obsessed with Fortnite and Parrish gives all the Celtics reporters a deadly virus by licking microphones. These are two teams with the 7 best defenses who rely on young dynamic shooting guards to accumulate points.
The Nets are a 1.5-point favorite, probably due to the uncertainty of the Bulls’ injury status and Vaughn’s freshness – he wasn’t neglected to answer questions about YouTube videos, conspiracy theories, flattening the Earth, or rejecting a vaccine like Nash Kahn. The over/under is 232.5, which is a testament to the scoring power of LaVine and Durant and the turnstile nature of both thrusters.
We’ll look at some games similar to this one, because like Kyrie, we think everything is connected, man. We don’t think Jack Vaughn is going to tighten that defense on his first day, so even though LaVine has knee pain, we’d love to invest Bulls + DeMar DeRozan’s money over 30 points + Zach Lavine over 20 points. (+650) If you think the Bulls will win this game down the road, this scenario will probably include two top scorers. And the combination of DeMar DeRozan’s amazing ability to get into the line, along with Ben Simmons’ amazing penchant for error says DeMar will light it up.
There’s also a delicious way to score all the goals – basically a no-confidence vote on both defences. If DeRozan and Durant both exceed 30 points, and Irving and LaVine both exceed 20 points, the bonus pays off at (+800). Finally, we like a long bet where DeRozan taps with over 35 points with DeRozan as the last bull to score. Basically, you are betting on a huge DeRozan, plus a bucket that wins the game or you close the game with free throws, which is a very good value at (+1500). Unfortunately you can’t do without a Nets side fight with Andre Drummond who lost a pair of free throws, because we’ll bet we get out of that.
The Suns only prefer 3.5 points, perhaps because the seven-foot-tall Joubert and Towns should have a significant height advantage over Phoenix without the heart of Deandre Eaton.
As for the Timberwolves-Suns game offerings themselves, we stick to one simple rule. Walking away from any investment that Anthony Edwards is involved in is to stay away, which is why. Karl Anthony Towns warned us that Edwards is on a bad diet, and we’ll listen.

According to Yelp, Popeye’s Louisiana Kitchen has seven different locations within ten miles of the footprint center in Phoenix. According to GrubHub, the city has 24 Popeye that offer delivery.. If Ant’s score is dispensed with a three-piece meal, perhaps, but we can’t recommend betting that he scored 30 points, which is what many of those bonuses do. Depends on.
Instead, we’ll look at defensive thinking. You can get (+4500) when you tap The Suns and give 3.5 points with Chris Paul and Edwards each getting at least 2 heists, along with Rudy Gobert and Bismack Biyombo – DeAndre Ayton’s substitute for at least next week – Get at least 2 blocks . If you take Timberwolves +3.5 instead, it’s worth (+5000).
We also love the minor premium: Chris Paul’s double, along with the Suns winning money streak is (+2200). There’s nothing Chris Paul loves more than showing off young guards like Edwards and D’Antony Russell, except for choking in the playoffs.
