Same Game NBA Picks and Parlays: Jazz vs Lakers

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.

Donovan Mitchell Under 27.5 Points and Under 4.5 Rebounds

Mitchell has put together another excellent campaign for the Jazz. He is averaging slightly fewer points per game than he did last year, but he has been more efficient as a scorer. He has posted a 53.2% effective field goal percentage, which represents a new career high.

That said, his scoring production is a bit volatile. He has racked up at least 29 points in four of his past seven games, but he has had 20 or fewer in the other three. Ultimately, his big recent performances have inflated his scoring prop, and OddsShopper gives him a 67% chance of hitting the under on Monday.

Bettors have to lay a bit more juice with the under on his rebounding prop, but it should be easier to cash. Mitchell has racked up five boards in back-to-back games, but those stand out as outliers. He has averaged just 3.8 rebounds per game. The return of Rudy Gobert should also result in slightly fewer boards moving forward.

Rudy Gobert Over 13.5 Rebounds

Speaking of Gobert, he has been an absolute monster on the glass this season. He leads the league with an average of 15.2 rebounds per game, and his 25.6% rebound rate is also tops in the league. Gobert returned to the lineup on Sunday following a stint in health and safety protocols, but he showed no signs of rust. He played 35 minutes and finished with 19 rebounds, and he should be able to put together another strong performance against the Lakers. The Lakers rank just 21st in team rebound rate, and they have also played at the third-fastest pace. That should result in plenty of opportunities on the glass.

Bojan Bogdanovic Under 4.5 Rebounds

Bogdanovic is another player who should be impacted by the return of Gobert. He has averaged just 4.1 rebounds per game this season, and he has racked up four rebounds or fewer in three straight games. OddsShopper gives this prop an expected win rate of 62%, and this prop is available at better than even money at most locations. That gives it the top expected return on investment of all the props in this contest.

Russell Westbrook Over 18.5 Points

It has not been pretty for Westbrook recently. He has been mired in a deep shooting slump, and he managed just 7.7 points per game in three games between Jan. 7 and Jan. 12. He also shot a paltry 20% from the field in those games. That said, he did bounce back with 19 points in his last game, and Westbrook’s scoring prop remains down across the industry. He has scored at least 19 points in 26 of 43 games this season, so this number is simply too low. The Jazz are also not the same defensive team that they have been in the past, ranking 12th in defensive efficiency. Overall, Westbrook is a prime buy-low candidate.
