Opening week for the 2021-22 NBA season continues on Saturday with a showdown between the Miami Heat and Indiana Pacers.

Here are three of the best prop bets for this regular season game, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.

Heat vs Pacers Prop Bets Tonight - 10/23/2021

1. Myles Turner - Points: Under 12.5 (-116)

Myles Turner exploded against the Washington Wizards on Friday, scoring a career-high 40 points. However, his 12.8 career points per game show how that performance was an anomaly. Turner will have to battle in the paint against Bam Adebayo, one of the NBA's best defensive centers. Another big part of Turner's 40-point performance was that he played over 43 minutes and took 22 field goal attempts against the Wizards. Both statistics are out of the ordinary for him, and that massive workload could take a toll on him on the second half of a back-to-back tonight.

2. Bam Adebayo - Rebounds: Under 10.5 (-110)

Bam Adebayo opened the 2021-22 NBA season with a 13-rebound showing in his first game. Unfortunately for him, he has a tougher task against the Pacers. Adebayo has averaged just 6.4 rebounds per game against Indiana — his second-worst average against any team. Not only that, but he has to deal with both Turner and Domantas Sabonis chasing rebounds. The duo averaged a combined 18.7 RPG against the Heat last season while Adebayo averaged 8.7.

3. Malcolm Brogdon: Points - Over 22.5 (-118)

Malcolm Brogdon could have an easier day if Kyle Lowry (ankle) doesn't suit up on Saturday. Brogdon took his offense to a new level last season, averaging a career-best 21.2 PPG. He's continued that success into the 2021-22 NBA season, averaging 28.0 PPG through Indiana's first two games. With Brogdon also averaging a career-high 21.0 field goal attempts per game this season, it's looking like there's still another gear his offensive game can reach. Even if Lowry plays, he may not be at 100%, meaning the door is still open for another big Brogdon performance.
