It’s not a huge slate of college basketball games on Monday but there is still plenty of value across the board. Let’s take a look at a couple of winning college basketball parlays to make your Monday a profitable one.
Texas Southern +20 -110 / Towson +5.5 – 110 / Illinois ML +120 // $10 bet pays $70.18
The Texas Southern Tigers are still looking for their first win of the season but they have been successful against the spread going 5-2 so far. A few games ago Texas Southern lost to NC State by only 12 points, and I expect that is where they are going to finish in this game. The Tigers will score just enough defense against the Florida Gators to cover the spread.
The Towson Tigers are getting too many points against the Kent State Golden Flashes. Kent State’s offense has been inconsistent this season and two games ago against East Tennessee State the offense could only manage 51 points. Towson has won two games in a row including a game against New Mexico where they gave up only 58 points. Towson is going to keep this game close.
This is the perfect game for the Illinois Fighting Illini to win. Illinois had some inconsistency early, but they are playing better as of late. In the last game against Rutgers, Illinois won by 35 points. In the last game, Iowa only managed 70 points against Purdue, and for a team that likes to push the pace, that isn’t good enough. Illinois is going to play enough defense to pull the upset on the road.
San Jose State, Pepperdine under 135.5 -110 / Houston -31.5 -110 // $10 bet pays $26.45
The San Jose State Spartans and Pepperdine Waves have both been lower scoring this season and points are going to be hard to come by in this game. Pepperdine is averaging only 64.5 points per game, and San Jose State only gave up 51 points in their last game. Look for this game to stay under the total.
The Houston Cougars are going to have no issue blowing out the Alcorn State Braves. In the last game against Tulane, Alcorn State lost by 19 points, and Houston is a much better team than Tulane. Alcorn State is going to have some major issues scoring, and this game is going to be ugly. Back Houston against the spread.
