It doesn’t get much better in any sport than Game 7, and the NBA has two of them to offer today. The Milwaukee Bucks have to travel back to Boston to face the Celtics to decide who moves on to face the Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference finals, and that game has a spread of 5 points in favor of Boston. Meanwhile, the late game is the Phoenix Suns attempting to hold serve as the best team in the league against the Dallas Mavericks, with the Golden State Warriors waiting on the winner. The Suns are favored by 6.5 points, and that leaves plenty of picks in the NBA betting market to make a parlay.
Best NBA Picks and Parlays Tonight
Jrue Holiday O/U 6.5 Assists
With Khris Middleton being ruled out as expected, the season for Milwaukee rides on the shoulders of Giannis Antetokounmpo and Jrue Holiday. Giannis has been taking a massive number of shot attempts this series, never falling below 25 and hitting 30 attempts in three separate games. Holiday and Antetokounmpo have been the only two players on the Bucks to average more than 2.8 potential assists through the series, and Holiday is second at 10.7. He leads the team in passes made per game (56.7), and he’s already averaging six assists per game while playing about 40 minutes. It’s almost a lock that he’ll play at least that number, and Holiday has logged as many as 43 minutes (Game 3). The expected win rate from OddsShopper is 54%, and he’s projected for 6.7 assists since he’s one of the two players running the Milwaukee offense.
If you believe that the Holiday will have a hard time exceeding six assists and that wager seems too risky, BetMGM is giving away FREE money! All you have to do is bet $10 to win $200 if either the Bucks or the Celtics hit just one 3-pointer tonight.

Luka Doncic O/U 10.5 Rebounds
Luka Doncic has been a strong rebounder this entire season, and that hasn’t stopped in the playoffs. He’s averaging 10.1 rebounds per game through the postseason, and the ROI for this wager is +120 with an expected win rate from OddsShopper of 53%. These two wagers combined would net a return of +329 according to the Awesemo Parlay Calculator, and the matchup against Phoenix has provided Doncic with an avenue to attack the glass. Of the 16 teams that made the field, Phoenix ranks 10th and Dallas ranks 15th, and they are the worst two rebounding teams in the second round. Doncic has averaged 15.5 rebounding chances per game in this series and is converting 63.4% of them, good for 9.8 per game. He only needs to grab one rebound more than he has averaged, and he has had games of 12, 13, 11 and 11 rebounds against the Suns. The ROI is well worth chasing with such an attainable number, and it is backed by the projection of 10.9 rebounds.
