Best FREE NBA Same Game Picks & Parlays Today

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 whole 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. Let’s find out what the best-projected bets are for Thursday night and build an NBA same-game parlay tonight.

Cory Joseph Over 3.5 Assists and 9.5 Points

On the Detroit side of this game, they will be missing Jerami Grant and Hamidou Diallo while Cade Cunningham is questionable. Even if Cunningham plays, Cory Joseph has a 27.7% assist rate and 17.2% usage on the season with the other two players off the court. He is not a primary source of scoring generally but Grant is a sizable loss since he is averaging 19 points per game. Joseph is only at eight points per game but should be forced into an elevated role tonight in both facets and the Magic are in the bottom 10 in defensive rating on the season. Both teams are in the top 16 in pace as well so the game has a respectable total of 219 points. OddsShopper has an expected win rate of 62% for the assists and 52% for the points for Joseph, but the points have the better ROI at +100. If Cunningham is ruled out, Joseph jumps up to an assist rate over 30% and would have an even better chance to hit both of these props.

Cole Anthony Under 5.5 Rebounds

The Magic are in a similar position as the Pistons in this game since they are missing Jalen Suggs and Wendell Carter Jr. is questionable. For Cole Anthony, rebounds might be a little difficult to come by tonight with the combo of Mo Bamba, Marvin Bagley and Isaiah Stewart all on the floor and Anthony is averaging just 5.6 rebounds on the year. It does have to be pointed out that both teams are deficient in rebounding overall, ranking 22nd for the Magic and 27th for the Pistons. However, Detroit acquired Bagley at the trade deadline and he has added 7.1 rebounds per game. If Carter Jr. plays, he is 11th in rebounding on the year at 10.4 per game and would have a soft matchup even with Bagley on the other side. There are plenty of players in this game that will be hitting the glass before Anthony and the under has an expected win rate of 69% from OddsShopper. That is hard to ignore and is the highest in the same-game parlay.

Isaiah Stewart Over 9.5 Points

The Awesemo Parlay Calculator has a return of +1035 for this four-leg NBA parlay and OddsShopper gives Stewart an expected win rate of 54%. Regardless of the status of Carter Jr. for the Magic, they struggle defending the paint, as they rank 27th in points allowed. On top of that, Orlando is allowing a 62.1% field goal rate within five feet of the basket this season. Stewart only averages 8.1 points per game but he is scoring the vast majority of those points in the paint this year (6.4) and accounts for 7.9 paint touches per game. Stewart would have to maximize his opportunities with just a 52.9% true shooting rate without Diallo and Grant, but that is a lot of extra shot attempts to trickle through the team. If Cunningham would be out, Stewart and Bagley could be the main focus of attacking one of the main weaknesses of the Magic team, which is right around the basket.
