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 10 a.m. on the DraftKings Sportsbook, so be sure to check OddsShopper for any updates when building any NBA parlay.

Trae Young Over 27.5 Points

There is no way for the Hawks to be competitive in this series unless Trae Young scores a ton of points. Atlanta has to take on Miami missing both John Collins and Clint Capela to start, and Young is going to be doing everything for the offense. With those two players off the court this year, Young has a usage rate of 37.8% and a true shooting rate of 63.1%. After struggling from the field in the game against the Charlotte Hornets, Young went 13-for-25 against the Cleveland Cavaliers and scored 38 points while taking 11 3-point field goal attempts. That number could be important today because Miami led the league in 3-point frequency allowed (over 45%), and Young shot 37.9% from 3 this season. OddsShopper has an expected win rate of 55% on Young today, and it’s hard to turn away from a player of his caliber who should take close to 25 shots attempts.

Daniel Theis Over 9.5 Points

The Brooklyn Nets facing the Boston Celtics is filled with star power, so it may seem odd to land on Daniel Theis for a wager, but the 63% expected win rate from OddsShopper and the projection of 11.3 points can be very convincing. Since Robert Williams went out for the Celtics on March 27, Theis has played the seven games after that while averaging 28.4 minutes and 13.1 points per game. He went over on this number in every game except for one, and the Celtics should be able to play him the same styles of minutes because the Nets will either counter with a big body like Andre Drummond or a speedier player like Nicolas Claxton. In either case, Brooklyn was 13th in points allowed in the paint and Theis has a 16.5% usage rate with a 64.9% true shooting rate without Williams on the floor. He should be getting multiple high-percentage chances at the basket today, making this a strong pick to add to the NBA parlay.


The Latest Sports Betting Content from Awesemo Odds


Brook Lopez Over 12.5 Points

He may have only played 13 games for the Milwaukee Bucks this season, but Brook Lopez scored 12.4 points per game and should see plenty of action in this series. The Chicago Bulls will play Nikola Vucevic big minutes, so Lopez should be on the floor to match them in most cases. Lopez was also second on the team in points in the paint on the year, behind only Giannis Antetokounmpo‘s 4.7 points per game. Chicago was dreadful defending the paint all season long, finishing 24th in points allowed, and Lopez can step out and hit 3’s as well. He averaged about 10 field goal attempts per game and carries a 52% expected win rate from OddsShopper in this contest.

Deandre Ayton Over 18.5 Points

The Awesemo Parlay Calculator gives these four picks a return of +1412, and Deandre Ayton has an expected win rate of 62% from OddsShopper. That’s one of the highest in the parlay, and while Ayton averaged only 17.2 points per game in the regular season, the Pelicans are terrible at defending the pick-and-roll. They are tied for the sixth-most points allowed and the sixth-most points per possession allowed to this play type. Ayton is third in points scored per game as the roll man and he shot 64.8% on his field goal attempts, the third highest of the top 10 scorers in the pick-and-roll. It tends to help to be on the receiving end of passes from Chris Paul, who led the league in frequency as the pick-and-roll ball handler. Ayton should be able to take advantage of a distinct weakness in the New Orleans defense tonight and is projected for just over 20 points scored.
