Most of the focus on the NBA slate today is at 6:00 p.m. or later as seven games tip-off this evening. The selection of games is very appealing as they are all under 10 points for the spread and every single one of them has a total of over 220 points, which is perfect to make picks to build an NBA parlay tonight.

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.
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. Sunday’s version of the Prop Party features four wagers as of 11:30 a.m. on the DraftKings Sportsbook, so be sure to check OddsShopper for any updates when building any NBA parlay.
Drew Eubanks Over 8.5 Rebounds
Be aware that this wager is in a game that tips off at 3:30 p.m as opposed to the rest of the slate, but Drew Eubanks of the Portland Trail Blazers has a great matchup against the Indiana Pacers this afternoon. Eubanks continues to fight for his spot on the roster of a rebuilding Trail Blazers team and he’s been averaging just under 27 minutes per game. That has translated to 8.2 rebounds per game on 13.1 chances and the Pacers frontcourt situation is unsettled, to be kind. Isaiah Jackson and Myles Turner are both out while Jalen Smith and Goga Bitadze are questionable. Even if the latter two play, the situation is very thin and the Pacers are outside of the top 10 in rebounds allowed in the paint. Eubanks has a 59% expected win rate from OddsShopper and the +108 ROI will be the highest of the parlay tonight.
Donovan Mitchell Over 26.5 Points
This wager is easy to love with an ROI of +100 and an expected win rate from OddsShopper of 59%. The Utah Jazz are in Madison Square Garden to take on the New York Knicks but the team will not be whole, as Mike Conley and Bojan Bogdanovic are both out tonight. Mitchell is already averaging 25.7 points per game throughout the season and when those two starters are off the court, his usage rate rises to 36%. That’s a 2.8% bump and the true shooting rate is 64.9%, speaking to his scoring ability. The advanced metrics are very kind to Mitchell in this matchup as he’s second in points per game as the ball-handler in the pick-and-roll (12.7). The Knicks are in the bottom 12 in points allowed and field goal attempts allowed defending that play type this season. On top of that, they are also in the bottom 12 in 3-point field goals allowed per game and frequency while Mitchell is shooting 35.9% from that distance. It all adds up to a very appealing way to kick off the NBA parlay tonight.
Klay Thompson Over 2.5 Assists
The Jazz aren’t the only team missing a key player in their rotation since the Golden State Warriors are down Steph Curry for the next couple of weeks, at a minimum. That means everyone will be more involved in the offensive playmaking, including Klay Thompson. He’s only played 165 minutes without Curry on the floor with him this season, but the assist rate is 19.7% and the Warriors are facing the San Antonio Spurs. They rank 19th in defensive rating and fourth in pace, so that should push the Warriors to run a little bit more than their 15th ranking in pace would suggest. Thompson is averaging 2.8 assists as it is and he’ll be making more than his normal 21.6 passes per game without Curry. OddsShopper backs this wager with an expected win rate of 67% and that is hard to pass up.

Jonas Valanciunas Over 17.5 Points
This wager is fascinating since the New Orleans Pelicans are still without Brandon Ingram tonight and Jonas Valanciunas is averaging 17.9 points per game on the year. It has an ROI of +100 which feels like a bonus because when Ingram is out of the lineup, Valanciunas has averaged 19.6 points per game across 16 contests this season. Granted, CJ McCollum is a newer member of the squad so that does skew some of the scoring responsibility away from Valanciunas but the matchup with the Atlanta Hawks is still excellent. The usage rate for Valanciunas is still 26.7% and the Hawks rank 20th in points per game in the paint allowed while Valanciunas is in the top 10 in the league in paint touchers per game (8.6) and points scored in the paint (8.8). The Hawks have also lost some size with John Collins still being out and they haven’t been playing Clint Capela a lot of minutes within the past month. Valanciunas himself has an expected win rate of 60% from OddsShopper and the Awesemo Parlay Calculator gives a return of +1397.
