Sunday features a seven-game NBA slate, including an important matchup between the Hornets and Nets. The biggest storyline is that Kyrie Irving will suit up in Brooklyn for the first time this year, but this game also has massive implications in the standings. The Hornets are just one game behind the Nets for the No. 8 seed in the Eastern Conference, and the difference between eight and nine is massive. The No. 8 seed has two chances to make the playoffs via the play-in tournament, while the No. 9 seed needs to win two games in a row. That makes this an extremely important matchup for both squads. Let’s dive into some NBA betting tips tonight and how to find the best NBA picks and parlays for March 27.
Same Game NBA Picks & Parlays: Hornets at Nets
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 on the NBA page, it is super simple to customize 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.
Kevin Durant Over 28.5 Points
All the attention will be focused on Kyrie in this matchup, but Durant should still be able to do plenty of work as a scorer. His scoring production has been nearly identical at home vs. on the road – 29.5 points per game vs. 29.6 – so Kyrie’s presence hasn’t had a huge impact on his numbers. Even if his volume is slightly down, Durant is more than capable of making up for it with his efficiency: He’s shooting 52.3% from the field on an average of 20.1 attempts per game.
The Nets should also be able to put points on the scoreboard vs. the Hornets. They haven’t been playing quite as fast recently, but the Nets lead the slate with an implied team total of 122.0 points.
Seth Curry Over 2.5 Assists
Curry is not known as a playmaker, but he’s having one of his best years as a distributor. He’s 3.7 assists per game, and while that number has dipped with the Nets, he’s still averaged 2.6 assists over 14 games with his new squad.
Irving’s return to the lineup means Curry will likely have the ball in his hands even less, but this prop is still grading out favorably on OddsShopper. The over is available at +150, resulting in an expected return on investment of +39%. That’s the top mark for any prop in this matchup.

LaMelo Ball Over 5.5 Rebounds
Ball has had an excellent sophomore season. He was selected for his first All-Star Game, and he’s averaged 19.8 points, 7.3 assists, and 6.8 rebounds per game. However, his production has declined since the All-Star break. He’s averaging fewer points, rebounds, and assists, and he’s also playing roughly 2.5 fewer minutes per game.
That’s caused his rebound prop to drop to just 5.5 vs. the Nets, which is simply too low. He’s racked up at least six rebounds in 39 of 67 games (58.2%), and his playing time is also trending back in the right direction. He’s averaged 34.2 minutes over his past five games, and that should be more than enough playing time for Ball to grab six boards.
Terry Rozier Under 4.5 Assists
Ball and Rozier have formed an effective backcourt this season, and the Hornets have won six of their past seven games. Ball is capable of doing a bit of everything, which has freed up Rozier to focus on scoring. He’s done plenty of that recently, averaging 23.3 points in 14 games since the All-Star break.
Rozier’s work as a distributor has been much more mediocre. He’s racked up four assists or fewer in five of his past six games. The under on this prop is juiced up to around -150, but it owns an expected win rate of 65%.
