The first weekend of the NBA playoffs featured a lot of great game environments and competitive games throughout.

Best NBA Picks and Parlays Today
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. Sunday’s version of the Prop Party features three wagers as of 11:45 a.m. on the DraftKings Sportsbook, so be sure to check OddsShopper for any updates when building any NBA parlay.
Fred VanVleet Over 3.5 3-Pointers
During the regular season, the 76ers defended the 3-point line well and only allowed a field goal percentage of 34.6%. That was tied for the ninth best in the league, but the Toronto Raptors are walking into this game without multiple key players. Scottie Barnes has already been ruled out and Gary Trent Jr. is listed as doubtful and did not participate in the shoot-around this morning. That means Fred VanVleet is not going to be able to take just 12 field goal attempts tonight when the Raptors try to even this series. If they have a chance, VanVleet and Pascal Siakam are going to have to do some heavy lifting and the ROI on this wager is +120. On top of that, the expected win rate is 59% from OddsShopper and VanVleet shot just under 38% from 3 this season. Given the situation tonight, he should take 10-12 attempts and has a great chance to sink at least four of them.
Mike Conley Over 5.5 Assists
This number for Mike Conley might seem like a reach based on Game 1 when he only had three assists and only four potential assists for the Utah Jazz. However, Conley averaged 49.3 passes made, 5.3 assists and 10.7 potential assists in the regular season as he played under 29 minutes per game. Conley made 55 passes in the first game against the Dallas Mavericks, and he played almost 35 minutes. The ROI for this wager is +105 and that might be an overreaction based on the results for Conley in the first game as opposed to what he will normally produce given those minutes and passes made. With only three games on the board tonight, taking a chance on a pick with a plus ROI makes sense in the NBA parlay. Additionally, the Jazz are five-point favorites and Conley has a 51% expected win rate from OddsShopper.

Klay Thompson Over 22.5 Points
The expected win rate for Klay Thompson tonight is 60% from OddsShopper, the highest in the parlay. This pick also pushes the parlay to a +733 return according to the Awesemo Parlay Calculator and Thompson scored 19 points in the first game while playing under 30 minutes and taking just 15 field goal attempts. Thompson went 50% from 3, and if the Nuggets can keep Game 2 just a little bit closer, Thompson should play more minutes and has an even better shot at going over here. It also helps Thompson that Stephen Curry only played 22 minutes in his return from a foot injury. This version of the Warriors has championship aspirations and there is no reason to think Curry will jump to more than 24-28 minutes tonight. When Curry was off the floor this season, Thompson had a 29.3% usage rate and averaged over 20 points per game.
