Using this fantastic site can help place smart wagers in an easy-to-use fashion and maximize the ROI on the wagers. It is truly betting made simple since you can find the best bet in 30 seconds or less. Take these NBA betting today, then head to OddsShopper and find your best odds.

NBA Picks & Parlays Today: Best Betting Picks

The first step is finding which sport to wager on, so the banner at the top of the screen has the sports separated. Once on the NBA page, it is super simple to customize teams and players on the left-hand side of the page.

Now, if you miss one of the odds highlighted in the article because it changed, do not worry. The lines do not always stay the same as they are updated every two minutes. There will be examples of when you can still wager based on the Awesemo projections. It is also easy to sort the props by what style you want to bet them, meaning that you can choose the highest ROI or the highest expected win rate.

Generally, the best approach is a mix of the highest ROI and expected win rate, and this process should take under 30 seconds to filter what you are looking for. As a reminder, betting the props individually is always a smart way to build your bankroll. Let’s find out what the best-projected bets are for Wednesday and build some NBA parlay picks.

Nikola Jokic Over 11.5 Rebounds

Jokic made his return to the Nuggets lineup in the last game and played 32 minutes, a strong start with a wrist injury. He grabbed another 15 rebounds, and while it is notable that he missed four games, Jokic is second behind only Rudy Gobert in rebound chances per game this season, with 21.1. Additionally, Jokic is covering almost 65% of those chances. The Magic are only 18th in total rebounding and 26th in rebounds allowed in the paint. OddsShopper has this wager projected for a 71% expected win rate and 13.5 rebounds on the night, and Orlando plays at the 15th-fastest pace. That is a nice jump from 30th for the Nuggets, and the spread is under 10 points.

Al Horford Over 6.5 Rebounds

Horford might not play the most minutes at just 28.4 per contest, but it would not be a surprise to see him cross 30 minutes against the 76ers and Joel Embiid tonight. The Celtics need everyone to contain Embiid as much as possible, which means Horford should be around the basket most of the game. He has 12.9 rebound chances per game, even in some limited minutes, and Embiid loves the post-up game. He leads the league in post-ups per game at 9.1 and is shooting 43.9% in that play type. When he misses, those are chances for Horford to snag the rebound, and OddsShopper has him projected for eight rebounds and an expected win rate of 70%. That is one of the highest of the slate, and most sportsbooks have the over at plus money, creating a very strong ROI.

Jonas Valanciunas Over 11.5 Rebounds

It seems to be a theme today, but OddsShopper likes this wager for Valanciunas, giving it an expected win rate of 63%. The Pelicans face off against the Mavericks tonight, and while Valanciunas is not likely to hit seven 3-point attempts like last game, he can find a ton of rebounds. Guarding the paint has been an issue for the Mavericks this season, and they rank 26th in rebounds allowed in the paint and 26th in total rebounds. On top of those metrics, Dallas could be without Kristaps Porzingis tonight since he is questionable with an injury. Valanciunas ranks third in rebound chances per game (20.9), and he is converting 59.5% of them, placing him fourth in the league in rebounds per game (12.1). The Dallas matchup just allows additional opportunities.


The Latest Sports Betting Content from Awesemo Odds


Bobby Portis Over 15.5 Points

One of the premier games of the evening is the Hornets facing the Bucks, which has a massive 231-point total. The average score for NBA teams is down 5 points from last season, and 231 totals have not been seen often. Both of these teams are in the top eight in pace, and Portis has been forced into a starting role due to the injuries Milwaukee has dealt with. He has played very well, with 1.12 fantasy points per minute and a 22.8% usage that includes 15.4 points scored per game. This should be a game played at breakneck speed, and Portis can score in different ways, shooting 44.4% from 3-point range thus far. Charlotte is 26th in defensive rating and fireworks are expected, lending OddsShopper to have an expected win rate of 60%.
