Tonight in the NBA sees all three of the games take place in the Eastern Conference and two of the games tonight have a spread under 4 points.

Lastly, The Milwaukee Bucks are 10-point favorites against the Chicago Bulls after winning Game 1. That leaves plenty of ways to go this evening for our NBA picks and parlays.

Best NBA Picks and Parlays Tonight
The first step is locating the new Parlay Builder tab on the OddsShopper home page, which is very simple to do. After that, the user can customize to their heart’s content. OddsShopper offers the parlay bets by state, sportsbooks and a variety of parlays. This article will be featuring the Prop Party Parlay, which gives up to five player prop bets that will give you the best chance to win based on our Awesemo simulations. The prop party is the most popular betting combo within the Awesemo community and Alex “Awesemo” Baker, the world’s No. 1 daily fantasy player, uses these almost exclusively when he is looking for an edge. It is always a smart idea to bet each wager as a solo piece as a way to build the bankroll. Parlays by their nature are harder to hit, which is why the reward is so large. Wednesday’s version of the Prop Party features two wagers as of 10:45 a.m. on the Caesars Sportsbook, so be sure to check for any updates.
Kevin Durant Over 5.5 Assists
It was a rough Game 1 for Kevin Durant as he shot just 9-of-24 from the floor and combined for just seven rebounds and assists. That’s not going to happen with a player of Durant’s caliber very often, especially when he’s on the floor for 41 minutes in a game and he generated six potential assists in that contest. That was also far lower than Durant had been showing since James Harden was traded to Philadelphia, something that is notable and a reason this is still a favorite at the sportsbook. After the Harden trade, Durant averaged 12.6 assists per game across 19 games and he made 48.8 passes per game. Those potential assists per game led the team, and that was even with Kyrie Irving playing 15 of those 19 games. Durant has an expected win rate of 63% from OddsShopper for this wager and is projected for 6.5 assists tonight.

Joel Embiid Over 32.5 Points
This series is on the third game and it has yet to see a competitive game with Philadelphia winning by a combined 35 points. While Joel Embiid has logged 37 minutes in each game, he’s only taken 31 total field goal attempts for 19 and 31 points scored. Granted, the field goal attempts are going to look a little low when a player parades to the free-throw line 25 times in two games, but that makes it even easier to hit the over on this wager, and the expected win rate is 52% from OddsShopper. This is the first game in Toronto, and if the Raptors can stay in this one longer than one half, Embiid will have to be more aggressive in looking for his shot and will probably go to the free-throw line even more, if possible. Toronto finished 22nd in points allowed in the paint, so Embiid having a stark advantage on the interior defense is not a revelation. In addition, the Raptors had the eighth-highest points per possession allowed against the post-up and Embiid handily led the league in points scored from that play type.
DeMar DeRozan Over 27.5 Points
The three picks in this NBA parlay would net a return of +520, according to the Awesemo Parlay Calculator and DeMar DeRozan has a 52% expected win rate individually. He couldn’t buy a shot in Game 1 as he scored 18 points in 43 minutes played because he shot 6-for-25 from the floor. That was an egregiously poor game for him shooting the basketball as he shot 50% from the floor this season. He made a run at an MVP case for part of the season just based on hitting shot after shot in the mid-range. During the regular season, DeRozan had 360 attempts in the 10- to 14-foot range and 443 from 15- to 19-foot range, and those accounted for 51% of his total attempts. DeRozan shot at least 48.1% from both zones and Milwaukee was in the bottom 12 in field goal percentage allowed in both of those zones defensively. This is mostly a law of averages wager and DeRozan averaged 27.7 points per game during the regular season.
