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.
Brook Lopez Over 10.5 Points
Finding an avenue when the Bucks face the 76ers almost feels imperative tonight since the spread is 1.5 points and the total is 232.5 points. Both teams are tied for one game behind the number one seed in the Eastern Conference and Brook Lopez is working his way back into the Milwaukee rotation after being out for the majority of the year. Two games ago, Lopez played 28 minutes with is the most he’s played in his seven games and Lopez is an important piece of the Milwaukee defense when everything is going well. This is what amounts to a playoff game and Milwaukee needs all hands on deck to deal with Joel Embiid. Lopez is scoring 9.3 points per game this season but he can also take 3-point attempts, which can help get him to this number if his shot is working. He’s also scoring 3.7 points in the paint in his limited sample, and he should be on the court for close to 30 minutes, leading to OddsShopper giving an expected win rate of 54% and an ROI of +106.
Luka Doncic Over 3.5 3-Pointers
This will be the third consecutive game Luka Doncic has been in this article for this wager but the ROI is still just too high to pass. It’s sitting at +115 and the Dallas Mavericks face the Los Angeles Lakers without LeBron James most likely. He’s doubtful and Dallas is a huge favorite at 12 points. However, Doncic has been launching 3-point attempts since the trade deadline with over 10 attempts per game and hitting over 40% of the time. For context, only Stephen Curry and Donovan Mitchell attempt 10 3-point field goals or more per game and they are at 38% or lower. What Doncic has been doing since the deadline and the shift in the Dallas identity is among the best in the league, and the defense of the Lakers shouldn’t scare anyone. They are down to 20th in defensive rating on the year and if Dallas blows out Los Angeles, Doncic is very likely to have a big hand and this pick fits the longshot parlay perfectly.

Rui Hachimura Over 12.5 Points
The Washington Wizards are playing out the stretch run with nothing but the draft to look forward to and they are only 3.5-point underdogs against the Chicago Bulls tonight. While Chicago will likely score at will, they don’t have a very strong defensive presence as they rank 21st in defensive rating and that’s where Rui Hachimura can step up. He’s projected for 15 points and has an expected win rate of 65%, both very high numbers compared to his line and the ROI of +100. Hachimura has 10.1 points per game this year, so it’s not a huge leap for him in this game and Kyle Kuzma remains out for the Wizards. The sample size since the trade deadline (when Kristaps Porzingis was acquired and many Wizards were shipped out), Hachimura has a 317-minute sample size and he’s had a usage rate of 22.4%. He’s been playing 25-30 minutes every night and with the Bulls having played last night, the defense is not likely to be that worrisome for Hachimura.
Bruce Brown Over 2.5 Assists
The return on these four picks for the NBA parlay would be +1742 according to the Awesemo Parlay Calculator as the Brooklyn Nets are in a must-win scenario almost the rest of the way. That includes tonight when they face the Detroit Pistons and Bruce Brown has been more involved with assists since the trade deadline. That’s when James Harden was dealt and Brown has averaged 5.8 potential assists per game on just 41.8 passes made. That’s a testament to being blessed to play with Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving where the assists might flow a little easier and the Nets are just 0.5 games ahead of the ninth seed in the East. It is one of the odder facets of the NBA season that Brooklyn might need to win two games to just get into the playoff field but remain the odds-on favorite to win the entire conference. Regardless, Brooklyn has to dispatch a team like the Pistons and Brown will be on the floor for 26 to 30 minutes and carries an expected win rate of 53% from OddsShopper.
