We have 10 games on tonight’s NBA slate, including last year’s two NBA finalists at home in great spots for double-digit wins.
The Milwaukee Bucks and Phoenix Suns each have winnable home matchups against the Minnesota Timberwolves and Sacramento Kings.
We also have the Boston Celtics in a great spot as low home favorites against the Washington Wizards.
I also see some solid value in the Miami Heat as a road underdog against the Brooklyn Nets.
Let’s dive in to find out why.

NBA Bets of the Day 10/27/21
Minnesota Timberwolves @ Milwaukee Bucks, 8:00 p.m. ET
Best Bet: Bucks -6.5 (-110) at Caesars
The Bucks (3-1) have gotten off to a respectable start as the defending NBA champions. Giannis Antetokounmpo is coming off a dominant outing against the Indiana Pacers, putting up 30 points on 55.6 percent shooting in a road win.
While point guard Jrue Holiday is dealing with a right heel contusion, putting his status in question for tonight’s game, the Bucks should still be able to take care of business at home against the T-Wolves.
Minnesota (2-1) hasn’t played a team nearly as formidable as the Bucks, as they’ve faced the New Orleans Pelicans twice and Houston Rockets once.
I’m always interested in getting the defending champions at a low spread in a home game against an inferior opponent, so give me the Bucks here.
Sacramento Kings @ Phoenix Suns, 10:00 p.m. ET
Best Bet: Suns -8 (-110) at Caesars
Last year’s NBA finalists have gotten off to a bit of a slow start at 1-2, but this game profiles as a bounce-back spot against a Sacramento Kings team that has given up at least 110 points in each of their three games this season.
We could see Suns’ star big man Deandre Ayton get back on track after three slow games to start the season.
The Kings struggle defensively, so it’s going to be tough for them to slow down Devin Booker and company.
Look for the Suns to win this game by double digits.
Miami Heat @ Brooklyn Nets, 7:30 p.m. ET
Best Bet: Heat +3.5 (-110) at Caesars
The Miami Heat were one of the most disappointing teams in basketball last season, but they’re here to prove they’re back to contenders this time around.
The Heat are a different team with point guard Kyle Lowry now in the fold. The veteran star fits in like a glove on this roster with his combination of shooting, defense, playmaking, and established rapport with Jimmy Butler.
Miami already has a statement win under their belt this season, blowing out the Bucks 137-95 in their first game of the year.
Look for Miami to at least keep it close in another big game, this time against the Brooklyn Nets.
Washington Wizards @ Boston Celtics, 7:30 p.m. ET
Best Bet: Celtics -4 (-110) at Caesars
The Boston Celtics have been a bit inconsistent in the early going, winning at Charlotte but getting blown out at home by a struggling Raptors team.
However, Jayson Tatum is balling out right now, combining for 72 points while shooting 50 percent from the field in his last two games.
The Wizards will likely struggle to contain Tatum, as well as Jaylen Brown, who already has games with 46 and 30 points this season.
I’m not high on Washington this year, so I’ll gladly take the Celtics at a low spread as home favorites.
