Best Same Game NBA Picks and Parlays Tonight: Cavaliers vs Trail Blazers

The first step is finding which sport you are going to wager on, so the banner at the top of the screen has the sports separated. Once you are on the NBA page, it is super simple to customize what you are looking for as far as teams and players on the left-hand side of the page.

Now, if you miss one of the odds highlighted in the article because it changed, do not worry. The lines do not always stay the same as they are updated every two minutes. There will be examples of when you can still wager based on the Awesemo projections. It is also easy to sort the props by what style you want to bet them, meaning that you can choose the highest ROI or the highest expected win rate.

Generally, the best approach is a mix of the highest ROI and expected win rate, and this process should take under 30 seconds to filter what you are looking for. The highlighted wagers in the article can also be bet individually, so if the parlay misses by one leg, it is not a total loss.

Norman Powell Under 23.5 Points and Under 3.5 Rebounds

The Trail Blazers are shorthanded at the moment, with Damian Lillard, C.J. McCollum and Larry Nance Jr. all sidelined. That has forced Powell into a larger workload than usual, and he has scored at least 26 points in back-to-back games. However, that has also caused his scoring prop to become a bit inflated, especially in a difficult matchup against the Cavaliers. They rank third in defensive efficiency and 21st in pace, so points should be at a premium for the Blazers on Friday. They are currently implied for just 104.5 points, which is the lowest mark on the slate.

Powell’s rebounding prop also seems high. He is averaging just 2.8 boards per game this season, and he grabbed three rebounds or fewer in four of his past five games. The Cavaliers also rank seventh in team rebound rate, so this is a tough matchup from a rebounding perspective as well.

Anfernee Simons Under 5.5 Assists

Simons has entered the starting lineup in place of Lillard and McCollum, and he had seven assists in back-to-back games. Still, Simons is more of a scorer than a distributor. He has taken at least 17 shot attempts in each of his past two games, and he has an average usage rate of 27.5%. There is nothing not to like about taking the under on 5.5 assists in a tough matchup, and OddsShopper gives this prop an expected win rate of 77%.

Nassir Little Over 6.5 Rebounds

Little has seen the largest boost for the Blazers from a playing time perspective recently. He has played at least 33.8 minutes in back-to-back games, which makes his current rebounding prop too low. He racked up nine rebounds two games ago, and he is averaging 8.4 rebounds per 36 minutes this season. Little should see another sizable workload on Friday, so this number feels too low.

Lauri Markkanen Under 13.5 Points

On the Cavaliers side, the under on Markkanen’s scoring prop stands out as the best wager. Adding that to the previous four props brings the potential payout on this same-game parlay to approximately +2400. The Cavs have a glut of big men at the moment, especially with Kevin Love earning more playing time as the season has progressed. Love has averaged 29.9 minutes over his past five games, and he is a high-usage player when he is on the court. Markkanen remains involved in the Cavs rotation, but his scoring potential is a bit lower when sharing the court with Love. Markkanen has scored 13 points or fewer in four straight games.
