Best NBA Picks & Parlays Today: Jrue Holiday Props & Betting Picks That PAY 15-1 TONIGHT




The five-game slate for the NBA tonight is highlighted by one game that is a borderline playoff game and features a nightcap between Western Conference heavyweights in the Phoenix Suns and Denver Nuggets. Three games have a spread under six points while the other two are over 12, which can be a little tricky. Having said that, there are plenty of picks to be made for a parlay tonight.

NBA Picks and Parlays Today: Player Props & Betting Picks

The first step is finding the brand new Parlay Builder for OddsShopper. It is located on the top banner and is just one click away. This tool is a game changer because the Awesemo data scientists have built the parlay already. The user has the choice of what type of parlay they prefer to chase and the slate is customizable along with the sportsbook. The parlay is built based on the top ROI bets based on Awesemo simulations and to exceed at least 10 times your initial bet. As a reminder, betting the props individually is always a smart way to build your bankroll. A 10x parlay is not exactly the most stable return if it is always being bet just as a parlay. Let’s find out what the best-projected NBA player prop bets are for Thursday and build some NBA parlay picks. OddsShopper updates the parlay constantly, so this is a guideline, and all plays will be linked to build the particular parlay.

Fred VanVleet Over 3.5 3-Pointers

The most important game in the standings tonight is the Toronto Raptors hosting the Cleveland Cavaliers, and Fred VanVleet is in line for 40-42 minutes tonight. While the matchup is not the most exploitable, VanVleet is tied for second in the league in 3-point field-goal attempts per game this year (10). Among players who are in the top 15 in attempts, VanVleet has the highest shooting percentage at 38.4%, which leaves him at an average of 3.8 made field goals per game. The expected win rate from OddsShopper is 55% and the ROI is +102. Cleveland does rank 18th in field goal percentage allowed from a 3-point distance at just 34.8% but with the Raptors sitting only one game behind Cleveland for the sixth seed in the East, VanVleet is going to play nearly the entire game. Getting out of the play-in scenario is that important and the ROI is very appealing.

Jrue Holiday Over 23.5 Points

This is a large jump for Jrue Holiday in his points category because he is only averaging 18.5 per game on the season. However, both Khris Middleton and Giannis Antetokounmpo have been ruled out for the Milwaukee Bucks tonight when they take on the Washington Wizards. That opens up an immense amount of usage and scoring responsibility in the offense and the metrics for Holiday would back this up. In a 390-minute sample this season, Holiday has a 36.7% usage rate and a 61.5% true shooting rate. The Wizards are in the bottom six as far as defensive rating this season and Holiday should be looking at 20 field goal attempts, if not more. The ROI is +100 and the expected win rate from OddsShopper is 59%, a perfect fit.

Jonas Valanciunas Over 2.5 Assists

This may not be a typical wager for Jonas Valanciunas but the ROI is +100 and the absence of Brandon Ingram from the New Orleans Pelicans‘ lineup bumps up the assist potential for Valanciunas just enough. Ingram last played on the sixth of this month and since then, Valanciunas has had 4.4 potential assists per game and is making 46.1 passes. The assist rate is 17% and the matchup with the Chicago Bulls is sneaky strong at this juncture. They are down to 21st in defensive rating and Valanciunas should be on the floor to match Nikola Vucevic for most of his minutes. In the eight games without Ingram, Valanciunas has recorded at least three assists in six of them and the expected win rate from OddsShopper is 51%.

Monte Morris Over 12.5 Points

As sublime as Nikola Jokic has been this year for the Denver Nuggets, someone other than him has to score when they face the Phoenix Suns tonight. Morris averages 12.8 points per game through this season and is shooting 39% from a 3-point distance. If the Suns continue to play without Chris Paul, their defensive rating comes down to 111.2, which would rank 17th in the league. They are more vulnerable and this game has the second-highest total on the slate at 323.5 points with a spread of under five points. The Nuggets have a 1.5 game lead on the Minnesota Timberwolves for the sixth seed in the West and Morris should log close to 30 minutes, if not 32 tonight. OddsShopper has him at an expected win rate of 52% and the Awesemo Parlay Calculator has a return of +1548. Morris still has a usage rate of 17.9% on the year and a 59.1% true shooting rate. It does not hurt when a player is on the floor with Jokic, one of the best passers in the entire league.
