It should be another entertaining night of NBA playoff basketball as the Boston Celtics look to rebound from a Game 1 loss against the Milwaukee Bucks and the Golden State Warriors attempt to go up 2-0 on the Memphis Grizzlies. Both games have a spread of five points or less and are projected to be very close. That is going to leave plenty of picks to make from the two games for our NBA picks and parlays.
That means it is time to use Awesemo OddsShopper to build some of the best NBA picks and parlays today. Using this fantastic site and all of its NBA betting tips can help place smart wagers in an easy-to-use fashion and maximize the ROI on the wagers. It is truly betting made simple since you can find the best bet in 30 seconds or less.
Longshot NBA Picks & Parlays, Player Prop Bets Tonight
The first step is finding the brand new Parlay Builder for OddsShopper. It is located on the top banner and is just one click away. This tool is a game changer because the Awesemo data scientists have built the parlay already. The user has the choice of what type of parlay they prefer to chase, and the state is customizable along with the sportsbook. Though it is rare, underdogs eventually have their day, and when they do, the payouts are excellent. Here are our best bets for underdogs if you like to fade the favorites and cheer for the upset at high odds. As a reminder, betting the props individually is always a smart way to build your bankroll. An underdog parlay is not exactly the most stable return if it is always being bet just as a parlay. Let’s find out what the best-projected bets are for Tuesday and build some NBA parlays today.
Giannis Antetokounmpo Over 30.5 Points
The expected win rate from OddsShopper is 49%, which is a bit unusual for a wager, but the ROI is -104 and Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 24 points in Game 1. He could not have shot much worse in that game, as he went 9-for-25 from the floor (including missing his lone 3-point attempt) and just 6-for-11 from the free-throw line. With the loss of Khris Middleton, everything is on the shoulders of Antetokounmpo to get the Bucks into the Eastern Conference Finals. He also only played 38 minutes. The game got a little lopsided toward the end, and Antetokounmpo is fully capable of playing even more minutes if they are needed tonight. Considering he shot 55.1% from the field during the regular season and 71.7% from the free-throw line, he is more than due for a better shooting night in Game 2. In the regular season, Antetokounmpo had a 35.8% usage rate without Middleton on the floor and is one of the most difficult players to defend in basketball. If he takes 20 shots or more tonight, this should be a relatively easy number to hit.

Brandon Clarke Over 8.5 Rebounds
It has been an excellent playoff run for Brandon Clarke as he has stepped up since Steven Adams was taken out of the rotation early in the first round. He is averaging 15.9 points and nine rebounds per game and has an expected win rate of 61% from OddsShopper tonight. Golden State enters this game ranking 12th in rebounds per game, so it is a pretty significant edge for Memphis since they are second and average about eight more rebounds per game. Clarke himself had 20 rebound chances in Game 1 of this series, and his conversion rate in the playoffs has been 49.6%. In one way, the matchup should be a little tougher tonight because Draymond Green was ejected in Game 1, but the Warriors have been playing smaller lineups and Clarke still has a strong path to attack the glass. The Awesemo Parlay Calculator gives a return of +268 for these two picks and would be another strong way to build a bankroll through the playoffs.
