Saturday’s NBA slate features another seven games, including an Eastern Conference showdown between the Bulls and Cavaliers. These two games are separated by just one game in the standings, and they’re battling with the Raptors for the final two guaranteed playoff spots in the East. That makes this a very important game for both squads, so expect them to treat it as such. Let’s dive into some NBA betting tips tonight and how to find the best NBA picks and parlays for March 26.
Same Game NBA Picks & Parlays: Bulls at Cavaliers
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.
Alex Caruso Over 3.5 Rebounds
Caruso’s rebounding numbers have been subpar recently, grabbing three boards or fewer in six of seven games since returning to the lineup. However, Caruso is more than capable of pulling down four rebounds. He’s started each of the past three games, and he racked up 32.6 minutes three games ago. He hasn’t gotten back to that threshold in the two games since, but those have both been blowout losses. If Saturday’s game is more competitive, Caruso should see a few extra minutes.
Caruso has averaged 4.6 rebounds per 36 minutes this season, so I like his chances of hitting the over in that situation. He’s played more than 29.5 minutes in 14 games this season, and he’s pulled down at least four boards in nine of them. I’ll roll the dice on this prop at better than even money.
Evan Mobley Over 0.5 Made 3-Pointers
Mobley remains a work in progress from behind the 3-point line. He’s made just 24.7% of his 3-point attempts this season, and he’s averaged just 0.3 made 3-pointers per game.
That makes the over on 0.5 3-pointers far from a lock, but the over is available at +255. It’s definitely worth a flyer at that number. Even with an expected win rate of just 35% on OddsShopper, this prop grades out with the second-highest expected return on investment in this contest.

Zach LaVine Over 4.5 Rebounds
LaVine is another member of the Bulls I’m willing to back on the boards. The Cavaliers have been a solid rebounding team this season – they rank ninth in team rebound rate – but they have been slightly worse with Jarrett Allen off the court.
Like Caruso, LaVine hasn’t been great on the boards recently, grabbing less than five rebounds in five of his past six games. However, LaVine has averaged 4.7 rebounds per game this season, and he’s ripped down at least five rebounds in 31 of his 60 games. That means the over is presenting some value at better than even money.
Nikola Vucevic Under 17.5 Points
Vucevic has averaged 18.0 points per game this season, but he’s benefited from the absences of LaVine and DeMar DeRozan. When both of those players have been in the lineup, Vucevic has served as the clear No. 3 option. He’s posted a usage rate of just 22.2% when sharing the floor with DeRozan and LaVine, and he’s averaged just 17.6 points per 36 minutes in that situation.
With both players expected to be in the lineup on Saturday, there’s merit with fading Vucevic in a tough matchup. The Cavaliers rank fourth in defensive efficiency and 25th in pace, so the Bulls have a bit less offensive upside than usual.
