Tuesday features a six-game NBA slate, including a matchup between the Bucks and Thunder. The Bucks are listed as massive road favorites, and it can be tough to bet a side in those situations. With that in mind, why not roll the dice on a same-game parlay? Let’s dive into some NBA betting tips tonight and how to find the best NBA picks and parlays for March 8.
Same Game NBA Picks and Parlay: Bucks vs. Thunder
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.
Giannis Antetokounmpo Over 1.5 Blocks
Antetokounmpo is arguably the best two-way player in the league, and his contributions on defense are particularly impressive. He ranks ninth in the league in defensive win shares this season, and he is routinely among the league leaders in that department.
Antetokounmpo has averaging just 1.4 blocks per game this season, but there are reasons to believe he can hit the over on Tuesday. He is coming off three blocked shots in his last outing, and he has had at least two blocks in 24 of 54 games this season. The over on his blocked shot prop is currently available at 130, and OddsShopper gives that wager an expected return on investment of 30%. That is the top mark in this game.
Darius Bazley Under 12.5 Points and Under 7.5 Rebounds
Bazley’s minutes have been extremely volatile of late. He played 35.6 minutes in their last outing, but he was limited to just 18.3 minutes in the game prior. Regardless, he was not able to hit the over on either of these props in both games. Bazley averaged 29.5 minutes over his past seven games, and he has responded with averages of just 7.3 points and 5.6 rebounds. The Bucks have not been an elite defensive team of late, but they still have the potential to be dominant in that department. That makes it tough to imagine Bazley bouncing back on Tuesday.

Tre Mann Under 2.5 Made 3-Pointers
Mann has started to earn more playing time for the Thunder of late. He has started 16 of their past 17 games, and he should continue to start with Luguentz Dort and Josh Giddey out of the lineup. That said, Mann still leaves a lot to be desired as a 3-point shooter. He is making just 34.5% of his 3-point attempts this season, good for an average of just 1.4 made 3’s per game. He has launched seven 3’s in each of his past two games, but he did not make a single one in his last outing. Mann is averaging just 2.1 made 3-pointers over his past 17 games, and he has hit the under on 2.5 in nine of those. Awesemo projects him for 1.9 made 3-pointers against the Bucks, giving this prop an expected win rate of 72%.
Shai Gilgeous-Alexander Over 26.5 Points
It has to be tough to be Gilgeous-Alexander. He is playing for a team with virtually no NBA-caliber talent on the roster, leaving him to carry a massive burden on a nightly basis. He has increased his usage rate by 6.2 percentage points in five games without Dort and Giddey, so he is looking at another sizable workload against the Bucks. That creates some value with the over on his scoring prop. Gilgeous-Alexander has displayed big scoring upside in games without both players, averaging 34.5 points per 36 minutes. He has scored at least 29 points in six straight games, including a blowout loss to the Timberwolves in which he played less than 30 minutes. Gilgeous-Alexander should fly past 26.5 points if this game is closer than expected, but he has a chance to hit the over even in a non-competitive contest.
