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 state 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 bets are for Thursday and build some NBA parlay picks. This particular parlay was listed at around 10:30 a.m. ET on Jan. 27. OddsShopper updates the parlay constantly, so this is a guideline, and all plays will be linked to build the particular parlay.

LeBron James Under 28.5 Points

LeBron James continues to score at a prolific rate this season, and he is up to 29.1 points per game, second behind Kevin Durant. However, his average has flown up in these past few weeks since the Lakers were missing Anthony Davis and James had to shoulder much more of the responsibility. Davis is now back, and tonight will be his second game, so his minutes should increase slightly from the 24 he played last time out. The Philadelphia 76ers are 11th in defensive rating, and when Davis is playing James has a usage rate of 31.6%. That is still strong, and he can have a big game scoring and still end up under 29 points tonight. OddsShopper has an expected win rate of 73% for this wager, and he is projected for 23.5 points.

James has been ruled out with a knee injury tonight so the pivot becomes Anthony Davis Over 18.5 Points. Not only does OddsShopper have an expected win rate of 52%, but Davis also has a 29.6% usage rate when James is off the floor and he’s averaging 22.8 points per game on the year. Philadelphia is just 14th in points allowed in the paint and Davis is still in the top 10 on points scored in the paint per game. It’s not likely that Davis plays 36 minutes after just coming back but the Lakers need to start racking up wins and Davis has to be at the center of it when he’s on the court tonight.

Otto Porter Jr. Under 6.5 Rebounds

Both the Minnesota Timberwolves and Golden State Warriors are in the top 13 in rebounding this season, which makes for an interesting matchup for Otto Porter Jr. tonight. He is projected for a 73% expected win rate from OddsShopper, and the Awesemo Parlay Calculator gives a +273 return for these two legs. Minnesota is just 21st in rebounds allowed in the paint this season, but Porter averages just 3.1 rebounds within six feet of the basket. Only 1.9 rebounds per game come from outside of six feet, and the Warriors as a team are 12th in rebounds allowed in the paint. The presence of Kevon Looney should keep Porter capped below seven rebounds tonight, as Looney averages 7.3 per game. The Warriors will likely need Looney to play some big minutes with the size that Minnesota brings into this game, leaving Porter on the outside of a lot of rebound chances tonight.
