Longshot NBA Parlay Picks & Player Props Today
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 oh so nice. Here are our best bets for underdogs if you like to fade the favs 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 us find out what the best-projected bets are for Friday and build some NBA parlay picks.
LeBron James Under 6.5 Assists
LeBron James has been on a tear for the Los Angeles Lakers in the past couple of weeks, and a matchup with Atlanta Hawks is not likely to stop that. Without Anthony Davis James has a 32.3% assist rate, which is almost identical to Russell Westbrook, and OddsShopper has a 69% expected win rate for this wager. While James has been carrying the Lakers the best he can, he has not always been dishing assists, with a total of 14 in the past three games. Since Davis has been out James has averaged 12.3 potential assists, so hitting the over would require strong shooting from his teammates. That is not a strength of the Lakers, so this is a good way to kick off the parlay.
Patrick Beverley Under 9.5 Points
The Minnesota Timberwolves have gotten through their best players missing due to protocols, so the trio of Karl-Anthony Towns, Anthony Edwards and D’Angelo Russell is back in action. Add in Malik Beasley off the bench, and this team has plenty of scoring, which is not always the forte for Patrick Beverley. The Timberwolves face the Oklahoma City Thunder tonight, and Beverley is only averaging 9.2 points per game on the season and shooting under 33% from 3-point distance. OddsShopper gives Beverley an expected win rate of 62% tonight to score under his season average, and the sportsbooks may not have reacted quickly enough to Minnesota being healthy.
Jalen Brunson Over 7.5 Assists
This is a large number, but Kristaps Porzingis has been ruled out for the Dallas Mavericks and Luka Doncic is doubtful. That is going to leave Jalen Brunson with a usage rate approaching 29% and an assist rate over 36%. OddsShopper has an expected win rate of 66%, and it is not hard to see why when the opposition is factored in. The Houston Rockets are a goldmine for production since they play at warp speed (third in pace) and are bottom five in defensive rating. Brunson is averaging 5.5 assists on the season, so the bump without their star players leaves him a great chance to hit the over.

Bradley Beal Under 5.5 Assists
This is another example of the sportsbooks possibly not reacting to players being back in the lineup. The Washington Wizards and taking on the Chicago Bulls, but they welcome back Spencer Dinwiddie into the lineup. The assist rate for Dinwiddie is 29.1% and 30% for Bradley Beal, and the Bulls are 12th in defensive rating this season. Beal is averaging 6.4 assists per game, but that has gone up sharply over the past handful of games with Dinwiddie out. Games with 17 assists tend to move the number just a bit. On the season Beal averages 11.6 potential assists per game, so OddsShopper has an expected win rate of 63% and the Awesemo Parlay Calculator gives a return of +1748.
