College Basketball Parlay Predictions for 3/17/23
College Basketball Picks for Friday
March 17, 2023 3:00 pm EDT
Friday is the second day of the Round of 64 in the NCAA Tournament, and there is plenty of value in this card. Let’s take a look at a couple of college basketball parlays to make your Friday a winning one.
College Basketball Parlay Prediction #1
Pick 1: Pitt Panthers +4.5 -110
The Pitt Panthers shouldn’t have had to even play in the Round of 68, and I think they can pull the upset against the Iowa State Cyclones here. Pitt only gave up 59 points in the last game against Mississippi State, they only gave up 59 points. Iowa State’s offense has been inconsistent this season, and they are going to struggle in this game to score against the Pitt defense. Back Pitt against the spread.
Pick 2: Arizona State Sun Devils +5.5 -110
The Arizona State Sun Devils are going to keep the game close against the TCU Horned Frogs. On Tuesday against Nevada, Arizona State scored 98 points, and they are going to have no issue running up the score again in this game. TCU in the last game only scored 66 points against Texas, and although I’m not sure the Sun Devils defense will keep them that low, they will play enough defense to keep this game close. Back the Sun Devils +5.5 $10 bet pays $26.45
College Basketball Parlay Prediction #2
Pick 1: Miami Hurricanes -1.5 -110
The Miami Hurricanes are going to get the job done against the Drake Bulldogs. Drake seems to be a popular upset pick, but this Miami team is too talented. Hurricane’s star player Norchad Omier is expected to play in this game and after his injury, that is good news for Miami. Drake’s defense has been good this season, but facing off against Miami is a much different task than a Missouri Valley foe. Back the Hurricanes laying the 1.5 points.
Pick 2: VCU Rams +4.5 -110
The VCU Rams are a team that is built for the postseason. The Saint Mary’s Gaels have had a strong season, but they didn’t look good in the WCC Tournament. They only beat BYU by seven points, and in the last against Gonzaga they were defeated 77-51. Saint Mary’s isn’t going to run up the score, and VCU is going to keep this game close. $10 bet pays $26.45
