Best NBA Picks & Parlays Today: Trae Young Player Props & Betting Picks That PAY OFF BIG

Avatar

Published

on

There are eight games tonight on the NBA schedule and six of those games have a spread of eight points or fewer. There are two games with identical 15-point spreads, so that should be taken into account when deciding where to place wagers. The exception could be the game between the Minnesota Timberwolves and the Portland Trail Blazers since that game has a total of 233 points, but there are a ton of avenues to make picks and build an NBA parlay.

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 NBA player 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 bets are for Monday and build some NBA parlay picks. This particular parlay was listed at around 12:45 p.m. ET on March 7. OddsShopper updates the parlay constantly, so this is a guideline, and all plays will be linked to build the particular parlay.

Trae Young Over 27.5 Points

The Atlanta Hawks are in Detroit to face the Pistons tonight and Trae Young is averaging exactly 28 points per game, so this one is right at the average. Young is driving to the basket the sixth-most times in the league and producing the seventh-most points from that play (10.3). The Pistons are in the bottom 10 in both field-goal attempts and made field goals within five feet of the hoop this season with a 61.7% field goal percentage allowed. Young should be able to get to the basket at will and as long as he is finishing those shots, his points should climb quickly. On top of that, Detroit is dead last in field goal percentage allowed from a 3-point distance at 37.4%, while Young is shooting over 38%. He is going to have ample opportunity to score in bunches and OddsShopper has an expected win rate of 56%.

Kevon Looney Over 7.5 Rebounds

The Golden State Warriors have elected not to send half their team to Denver to face the Nuggets, including Stephen Curry, Andrew Wiggins and Klay Thompson. It is going to be the bench players for the most part and Kevon Looney is going to be desperately needed to face Nikola Jokic. Jokic went bonkers last night with a triple-double and scoring over 40 points, so Looney is not going to be able to contain him. The Warriors will badly need any size they can get and Looney is averaging 7.5 rebounds on the season. Of those rebounds, 5.5 of them come from inside of six feet of the basket. Looney did corral eight rebounds in their last game against the Nuggets, though, so it can be done. Since Jokic played 42 minutes last night, the legs could be a little tired and OddsShopper has an expected win rate of 71% for Looney.

R.J. Barrett Over 3.5 Assists

This wager feels like it could be getting greedy because this will mark the third straight New York Knicks game that R.J. Barrett has been a target for his assists. However, it does not seem like the sportsbooks are adjusting to Barrett as he faces the Sacramento Kings tonight, a perfect blend of pace (seventh) and defensive rating (28th). Barrett is averaging over seven potential assists per game since Kemba Walker has been out of the rotation and he plays the minutes you need with an assist rate of 22.2% in that sample size. OddsShopper backs this play up with a 57% expected win rate, and even though it is a repetitive wager over the past 7-10 days, Barrett has 22 assists over his past four games. It is being given out at a +100 ROI once again so it is worth cashing as a pick in the NBA parlay.

LeBron James Over 30.5 Points

This is a massive number for LeBron James but it seems like the only way the Los Angeles Lakers can win a game is if he puts forth a superhero-level effort, as evidenced by him scoring 56 points in the last game and the Lakers winning by just eight points. Tonight, the Lakers take on the San Antonio Spurs and both of these teams are in the top five in pace and the bottom 12 in defensive rating. The total of 236 points with a 2.5-point spread is arguably the most appealing game environment of the night and without Anthony Davis, James has a 33.2% usage rate. He is averaging 29.4 points per game as is, so 31 is really not that much of a stretch at this point and OddsShopper has an expected win rate of 60%. With the Awesemo Parlay Calculator giving a return of +1384 for this four-leg parlay, it could be a very strong way to build the bankroll.
