Best Same Game NBA Picks and Parlays Tonight: Spurs vs. Grizzlies

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.

Kieta Bates-Diop Under 8.5 Points and Under 5.5 Rebounds

Fading Bates-Diop stands out as the easy start to this same-game parlay. OddsShopper lists both of these unders with an expected win rate of at least 83%, making them arguably the two strongest wagers on Friday’s entire slate. Bates-Diop has had some relevance at times this season, but he is not a huge part of the Spurs’ rotation when they are at full strength. He logged less than 16 minutes in their last game, and he responded with just 2 points and one rebound. The Spurs are only expected to be without Dejounte Murray against the Grizzlies, so there is no reason to expect much to change for KBD in this matchup.

Devin Vassell Over 9.5 Points

Vassell and Bates-Diop compete for the same minutes with the Spurs, so it makes sense to be high on Vassell if fading Bates-Diop. Vassell saw significantly more playing time for this duo in their last game – nearly 28.8 minutes – and he responded with 13 points.

OddsShopper projects Vassell for 27.4 minutes against the Grizzlies, and asking him to get 10 points with that much playing time is very reasonable. He has logged at least 25 minutes in 12 games this season, and he has responded with double-digit points in 10 of them.

The Latest Sports Betting Content from Awesemo Odds

Desmond Bane Over 19.5 Points

Bane stands out as one of the best potential targets on the Grizzlies. He has taken a massive step forward in his sophomore season, averaging 17.3 points on 29.6 minutes per game. There are reasons to expect him to exceed those marks on Friday. For starters, the Grizzlies continue to play without a few of their key contributors. Most notably, Dillon Brooks, De’Anthony Melton and John Konchar are all out of the lineup due to health and safety protocols.

Brooks’ absence is particularly important. Bane has increased his usage rate by 1.3% with Brooks off the court this season, which is the second-highest mark on the team. He is averaging 21.6 points per 36 minutes in that situation, and 36 minutes is a very reasonable playing time expectation for him against the Spurs. He has played at least 32.1 minutes in four of his past five games, and he has responded with at least 20 points in each of them.

Ja Morant Over 6.5 Assists

The over on 6.5 assists for Morant brings the potential payout on this five-leg single-game parlay to +1500. Most of the attention on Morant has been focused on his scoring recently. He has been fantastic in that regard, scoring 74 points over his past two games, but he has been a quality distributor for most of the season. He has played in 23 games this season – excluding the one he exited with an injury – and he has handed out at least seven assists in 12 of them. That means there is a bit of value on the over at 6.5.

Bettors can also correlate the Morant over with the Bane over. If Bane is going to get to 20 points, there is a good chance that at least a few of his buckets will come off Morant assists.
