Longshot NBA Parlay Picks Today

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. Though it is rare, underdogs eventually have their day, and when they do, the payouts are oh so nice. Here are our best bets for underdogs if you like to fade the favs and cheer for the upset at high odds. As a reminder, betting the props individually is always a smart way to build your bankroll. An underdog parlay is not exactly the most stable return if it is always being bet just as a parlay. Let us find out what the best-projected bets are for Friday and build some NBA parlay picks.

Draymond Green Under 8.5 Points

Despite the Golden State Warriors playing without Jordan Poole tonight, Draymond Green still has an expected win rate of 62% from OddsShopper. The Warriors are in Boston to face the Celtics, and Green is averaging 8.3 points per game but takes under six field goal attempts per game. When Poole comes off the floor, Green’s usage actually falls 2.2%, which helps lead to the under hitting in this matchup. The extra scoring burden likely falls to Stephen Curry and Andrew Wiggins while Green’s role stays mostly stagnant.

Dejounte Murray Over 7.5 Assists

The San Antonio Spurs are facing the Jazz in Utah tonight, and generally wagering on players facing the Jazz can be difficult. They are a strong defensive team and rank fifth in defensive rating on the season. However, Dejounte Murray is sixth in the NBA in assists per game (8.4), and he is leading the Spurs in usage rate (25.3%) and assist rate (34.7%). Murray is also 13th in the league in drives to the basket, but he passes from the drive 49% of the time. With Jazz center Rudy Gobert waiting for him in the paint, that likely will not change tonight. With a high pass rate from drives, the expected win rate of 74% from OddsShopper makes a lot of sense.

Nikola Jokic Over 12.5 Rebounds

Nikola Jokic is no stranger to these articles, but now he is an underdog for a prop, and that is always worth chasing. That is especially true when Jokic is averaging 13.6 rebounds per game on the season. The Denver Nuggets take on the Atlanta Hawks, and that is not the easiest spot to rack up rebounds. They are seventh in rebounds per game, and this game will feature two of the four players in the league that average more than 20 rebound chances per game in Jokic and Clint Capela. Jokic has a higher conversion rate than Capela — 65.3% to 61% — and he is playing about three minutes more per night, leading OddsShopper to give Jokic an expected win rate of 74%.

Norman Powell Over 20.5 Points

The Awesemo Parlay Calculator gives this four-leg parlay a return of +1714, and OddsShopper has the wager for Norman Powell at a 62% expected win rate. The Portland Trail Blazers host the Charlotte Hornets tonight, which is perfect for Powell. Portland is missing C.J. McCollum, and without him Powell takes on more responsibility to score alongside Damian Lillard. Powell has a 26.1% usage rate without McCollum, and he already averages 17.8 points per game. In a matchup against a team that is dead last in defensive rating and plays at the third-quickest pace in basketball, Powell can hit the over in a hurry, as he is shooting 46.6% from the field this year, including 40.3% from 3-point distance.
