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 DraftKings Sportsbook, so be sure to check OddsShopper for any updates when building any NBA parlay.
Cameron Payne Over 16.5 Points
This game is at 3:30 so be aware when placing the wager. With the fact that Paul and Booker are missing, Cameron Payne has taken a larger role in the offense on his way back from a wrist injury. With Johnson now out on top of that, there are going to be a ton of shots available. Payne logged 32 minutes on Friday against the New York Knicks and scored 17 points on just 6-16 from the field, including missing all three of his 3-point attempts. Milwaukee is in the bottom five in frequency allowed for 3-point field goals so Payne will have plenty of chances to shoot from that distance today. Milwaukee has somewhat quietly slipped in defensive rating this season, sitting at 12th and that’s not bad but it’s worse than their standard over the past couple of seasons. OddsShopper has a 56% expected win rate on this wager. Lastly, both teams are in the top 10 in pace and Payne carries a usage rate of 29.3% when Paul and Booker are off the floor.
Ja Morant Over 29.5 Points
It can be a little scary to invest in point totals this high, but when it’s Ja Morant and his Memphis Grizzlies facing the Houston Rockets, that calms any fears. This point is said repeatedly, but Houston leads the league in pace and is dead last in defensive rating and before Morant played just 28 minutes last night, he had here straight games where he scored 46, 52, and 38 points. Even last night in limited time, he scored 25 and would have easily hit 30 with a full allotment. Morant is up to averaging 27.7 points per game this season and has improved his shooting from a 3-point distance up to 34.7%. He’s also leading the league in points scored from driving to the basket while displaying a trademark fearlessness in his attack. Houston is dead last in points allowed in the paint and OddsShopper is bullish on this wager with a 56% expected win rate.
RJ Barrett Over 3.5 Assists
This wager is a toss-up according to OddsShopper with a true 50/50 split on the expected win rate. However, it is +100 for the ROI and RJ Barrett has been much more involved with passing the ball lately. Just this past game when he ended with five assists, he had nine potential assists. Barrett is pushing 40 minutes every single game and the Los Angeles Clipper play at a faster pace (14th) than the New York Knicks (27th). That’s going to help Barrett and a facet of the Knicks offense that has sparked his newfound assist prowess appears to have been Kemba Walker being removed from the rotation. Since the last game Walker was active, Barrett has averaged 8.3 potential assists per game. Even though the sample is just four games it is notable and since the start of February, Barrett is at 7.5. This is worth chasing at plus money since Barrett appears to be blossoming into his potential as a former third overall pick.

Darius Garland Over 2.5 3-Pointers
The Awesemo Parlay Calculator gives a return of +1238 on these four picks for the NBA parlay and Darius Garland and the Cleveland Cavaliers face off against the Toronto Raptors tonight. The Raptors are in the bottom 12 in both 3-point field goal percentage allowed and frequency allowed, so Garland should have plenty of chances. Additionally, Garland is shooting 38.5% from a 3-point distance this season to go along with his 27.4% usage rate this year. OddsShopper has an expected win rate of 56% and the Raptors tend to play a good bit of zone defense. That’s going to allow Garland to take his shots and the ROI is solid at -115 to help build the bankroll again tonight.
