Best FREE NBA Picks and Parlay Bets 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 Chalk Eater Parlay. There is no time for losers here, heavy favorites only, please. Up to FIVE of the top strong favorites in our model, combined into a single parlay. The sportsbooks expect these to hit and so do we. 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. Monday’s version of the Chalk Eater features four wagers as of noon on Caesars Sportsbook for our NBA picks and parlays today, so be sure to check for any updates.

Rudy Gobert Under 1.5 Assists

The Utah Jazz play on the second leg of a back-to-back tonight, and while Rudy Gobert is the premier rebounder in the league, he is not going to dish a lot of assists on the floor. The Jazz face the Lakers tonight, and Gobert is only averaging 1.1 assists per game on the season. Los Angeles is 25th in points per game allowed in the paint, and that is a boost to the scoring for Gobert, as he ranks this in scoring in the paint this year (12.4 points). Since he has a very clear path to easier buckets on the interior, he is not going to have much of a reason to pass the ball. His assist rate is 5%, and OddsShopper has an expected win rate of 71%.

Jeremiah Robinson-Earl Under 1.5 Assists

Jeremiah Robinson-Earl may not be a household name for the Oklahoma City Thunder but when they take on the Dallas Mavericks, he fits perfectly in the chalk eater parlay. He is averaging just 22 minutes per game and 0.9 assists per night as well, with a 6% assist rate to go with it. No player on the team has a lower usage rate than his 14.8% and OddsShopper has an expected win rate of 74%, the second highest in the parlay. The Mavericks are 21st in points allowed in the paint and Robinson-Earl’s 3.5 paint touches per game could have a higher chance to turn into points.

De’Andre Hunter Under 1.5 Assists

The Atlanta Hawks have a tough matchup against the Milwaukee Bucks, and it has to be noted that this game starts at 6 p.m. tonight. De’Andre Hunter is just working his way back from an injury that held him out of around two months of action this year and has played the past three games but has not crossed 30 minutes. His assist rate is just 10.2%, and he is not even averaging one assist per game so far in his 14 contests. It is not going to help that Milwaukee is seventh in defensive rating this year and OddsShopper has an expected win rate of 75%.

Fred VanVleet Over 3.5 Rebounds

The last leg of the parlay tonight comes from the Toronto Raptors when they face the Miami Heat, and Fred VanVleet is already averaging 4.9 rebounds per game. OddsShopper gives him an expected win rate of 71% and the Awesemo Parlay Calculator gives a return of +449. The Heat rank just 16th in rebounding on the season and VanVleet averages 3.7 rebounds per game outside of six feet from the basket. While it is fair to point out Miami is first in rebounds allowed outside of the paint, they are still going up almost 18 rebounds in that area and they are mediocre overall. Toronto is right next to Miami at 15th in rebounding overall and VanVleet logs massive minutes, leading the league at 37.9 minutes per game. No other player is above 37 minutes per game and VanVleet practically falls into production.
