Same Game NBA Picks and Parlays: Pacers vs Pelicans

The first step is finding which sport you are going to wager on, so the banner at the top of the screen has the sports separated. Once you are on the NBA page, it is super simple to customize what you are looking for as far as 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. The highlighted wagers in the article can also be bet individually, so if the parlay misses by one leg, it is not a total loss.

Jonas Valanciunas Under 14.5 Rebounds

The Pelicans are going to be a bit shorthanded Monday. Brandon Ingram has already been ruled out, while Devonte’ Graham is currently questionable. That should give Valanciunas a nice boost in value from a scoring perspective. However, his rebounding numbers only see a modest boost. He has increased his rebound rate by 0.7% and averaged 12.8 rebounds in eight games without Valanciunas this season. Valanciunas has averaged 12 rebounds per game in general this season, so that only represents a slight increase.

Overall, this line seems significantly inflated. He has racked up fewer than 15 boards in 31 of his 42 games, so the under unexpectedly has an expected win rate of 76% on OddsShopper.

Josh Hart Under 15.5 Points

Hart is one of the best plays from a fantasy perspective. He is capable of impacting a game in a variety of ways, and he has averaged 13.3 points, 7.5 rebounds, and 4.3 assists per game this season. That said, his scoring prop is a bit ambitious on Monday. Hart has scored 15 points or fewer in seven of his past nine games, and he has hit the under on 15.5 points in 25 of 36 games this year.

Hart should see a slight usage bump with Ingram out of the lineup, but that is not necessarily enough to push him over this number. He has played eight full games without Ingram this season, and he has averaged just 13 points in those contests. He has also increased his usage rate by just 0.2% in those games, which is one of the worst marks on the team.

Goga Bitadze Over 7.5 Rebounds and 12.5 Points

The Pacers are most likely going to be without Domantas Sabonis and Myles Turner once again on Monday, so Bitadze should be asked to take on a sizable role. He has thrived in place of Sabonis and Turner recently, averaging 14.5 points and 10.0 rebounds over his past two games. His numbers would arguably be even better if not for getting ejected during the fourth quarter in the Pacers’ shocking upset over the Warriors.

There is no reason Bitadze cannot continue to produce in this matchup. The Pelicans rank just 23rd in defensive efficiency.

Torrey Craig Under 10.5 Points

Turner and Sabonis are not the only injuries that the Pacers are dealing with. Malcolm Brogdon and T.J. McConnell are both out of the lineup, while Caris LeVert has missed the past two games.

However, LeVert could potentially return to the lineup on Monday. He is currently questionable, and his return would result in a serious decrease in playing time for some of the other Pacers’ wings. Craig could be one of the most impacted. He has played at least 30.2 minutes in three straight games, but he has averaged just 18.2 minutes per game this season.

Even if LeVert is out and Craig does see another expanded workload, there is no guarantee that he will hit the over on this number. He has finished with 8 points or fewer in five of his past six games.
