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.
Kevin Durant Over 28.5 Points
There is a strong argument to make a wager on either Kevin Durant or Kyrie Irving going over their points tonight when the Nets play the Hornets. Both players are at -115 for the ROI, and OddsShopper has an expected win rate of at least 57% but Durant holds the edge at 59% and is projected for 30.8 points. The Hornets continue to play at the fifth-highest pace and the Nets can match it at 12th, helping explain why this game is close to a 240-point total tonight. Charlotte is in the bottom 10 in defensive rating and Durant is averaging 29.5 points on the season. Even though the Nets played last night, they destroyed the Miami Heat and Durant didn’t play any fourth quarter minutes. Durant is also fourth in points scored from isolation this year and is shooting 51.5% in that play type. The Hornets have allowed the 10th highest field goal percentage in that play type and Brooklyn is just one game ahead of the Hornets for the eighth seed in the Eastern Conference. Holding that seed means the Nets would only need one win to be seventh when the playoffs started and this is a big game for both teams.
Robert Williams Over 10.5 Points
Anytime there is a wager that sits at a +100 ROI and has an expected win rate of 62%, it’s worth paying attention. Robert Williams and the Boston Celtics take on the Minnesota Timberwolves. The Celtics will be missing Al Horford today, which means Williams should play at least 30-32 minutes. He’s not going to be a high-usage player at just 11% but Minnesota is just 15th in points allowed in the paint and Williams averages 9.9 points on the season. He’s doing almost all of his damage in the paint with 8.8 points scored and he’s eighth in paint touches in the league. The Celtics need Williams a good deal today to combat Karl-Anthony Towns on the other side and the matchup is strong enough to exploit for 11 points or more.
Jordan Poole Over 4.5 Assists
The expected win rate from OddsShopper is 70% and this wager feels just far too good to pass up, even with an ROI of -140. Jordan Poole has played at a very high level without Stephen Curry this season and in the past four games without Curry, Poole has 28 assists to average seven per game. The potential assists back up his large number with 13.8 per game and Poole has made 65.8 passes per game. They face the Washington Wizards tonight and Washington is 25th in defensive rating. Golden State has been playing some very average basketball lately and it’s not impossible to fall to fifth in the Western Conference. They need to bring some wins together to hold their seeding and this game is one of them so Poole should be around 32-35 minutes with an assist rate of 27.6%.

Luka Doncic Over 3.5 3-Pointers
The ROI for this is fantastic at +130 and it helps balance out the -140 ROI for Poole while OddsShopper gives Luka Doncic a 57% expected win rate. The four picks for the NBA parlay net a return of +1374 from the Awesemo Parlay Calculator and this game is for sole possession of the fourth seed in the Western Conference. On the season, Doncic is shooting 34.7% from a 3-point distance but he had a rough start to the year and wasn’t in the greatest shape. It’s interesting to note that since the trade deadline, Doncic is up to 39.2% on 10.4 attempts per game. The Mavericks shook the team up at the deadline and Doncic responded extremely well after that point. The Jazz allow the 12th lowest 3-point field goal percentage in the league but with the volume Doncic is shooting, that’s not a total deal-breaker. Utah still allows almost 35 attempts from a 3-point distance per game and that’s plenty for Doncic to exploit.
