There is a crowded NBA slate through the day today with eight total games and five of them tip-off at 6:00 p.m. tonight. In the meantime, there are three games in the afternoon but the evening games look to be tricky.

Best NBA Picks and Parlays Today
The first step is locating the new Parlay Builder tab on the OddsShopper home page, which is very simple to do. After that, the user can customize to their heart’s content. OddsShopper offers the parlay bets by state, sportsbooks, and a variety of parlays. This article will be featuring the Prop Party Parlay, which gives up to five player prop bets that will give you the best chance to win based on our Awesemo simulations. The prop party is the most popular betting combo within the Awesemo community and Alex “Awesemo” Baker – the world’s No. 1 daily fantasy player — uses these almost exclusively when he is looking for an edge. It is always a smart idea to bet each wager as a solo piece as a way to build the bankroll. Parlays by their nature are harder to hit, which is why the reward is so large. Saturday’s version of the Prop Party features four wagers as of 11:30 a.m. on the Caesars Sportsbook, so be sure to check OddsShopper for any updates when building any NBA parlay.
Kevin Durant Over 30.5 Points
This might be a lot of points for Kevin Durant but the Brooklyn Nets face the New York Knicks today without Kyrie Irving. Be aware that this game tips at 1:00 p.m. so get the wager in early but without Irving and James Harden on the floor this season, Durant has a usage rate over 36%. Durant is already averaging 29 points per game so this isn’t a stretch compared to what he normally produces and the Knicks are just 16th in defensive rating. They also don’t have an individual defender that should be able to contain Durant and he’s fourth in points scored in isolation this season. The Knicks are allowing the ninth-higher points per possession in isolation this year and that’s with them holding opponents to a 39.1% field goal percentage. Durant is shooting 51.8% in isolation and OddsShopper has him at an expected win rate of 56%. With the Nets fighting to have a shot at the seven or six seed in the Eastern Conference, Durant will need to play his normal minutes today as well.
Devonte’ Graham Over 16.5 Points
The New Orleans Pelicans take on the Houston Rockets tonight and they are still without CJ McCollum and Brandon Ingram. If the past game is any indication, Devonte’ Graham is in line for a ton of minutes as he played 34 minutes and took 14 field goal attempts, including 10 from a 3-point distance. The Rockets are in the bottom 10 in 3-point frequency allowed and field goal percentage allowed, so Graham has a strong avenue to points from that respect. On top of that, Houston is still dead last in defensive rating and they are second in pace. Graham has a huge opportunity tonight in one of the better game environments on the slate as this game has a 231.5 point total along with a spread of just seven points. OddsShopper backs up his chances to hit at least 17 points with a 53% expected win rate.
Joel Embiid Over 30.5 Points
Much like Durant, this is a large number of points for Joel Embiid when the Philadelphia 76ers face the Magic in Orlando. However, Embiid has a clear path to scoring in bunches tonight as he’s already averaging 29.7 points on the season and the Magic have a weak interior. They rank 25th in points allowed in the paint and while Embiid can score from just about anywhere, 5.1 points per game coming inside the paint. He’s leading the league in free three attempts per game this season (11.9) and the post-up game could be very kind to Embiid tonight. Embiid leads the league with 8.6 points per game in post-ups on the season and the Magic allows the fifth-most points per game in that play type. OddsShopper has an expected win rate of 55% and the 76ers could potentially still capture the number one seed in the East. If they blow out the Magic, Embiid should be one of the main reasons that it happens.
The Latest Sports Betting Content from Awesemo Odds
Devin Booker Over 26.5 Points
The Awesemo Parlay Calculator gives a return of +1258 for this four-leg NBA parlay and Devin Booker has an expected win rate of 53% from OddsShopper. It’s mostly about scoring in Sunday’s parlay and the Phoenix Suns continue to be without Chris Paul when they host the Los Angeles Lakers tonight. Booker recently missed four games in health protocols and since he’s come back, he’s only taken 30 field goal attempts total. That trend should stop tonight and the Lakers are at a 115.0 defensive rating without Anthony Davis on the floor. That would be 29th and Booker has the keys to this offense, so much so that he’s dished 16 assists in the past two games. The Suns are closing in on locking up the number one seed in the Western Conference and without Paul on the floor, Booker has a usage rate of 32.2%. The way LeBron James has been playing lately should demand Booker to do more than the past couple of games and the Suns are coming off a loss themselves. In the two games directly before he missed time, Booker scored 30 points in each and he has every chance of that tonight.
