Thursday is another solid slate of college basketball games and there is value in parlays. Let's take a look at a couple of college basketball parlay predictions for Thursday night.

College Basketball Parlay Prediction #1

Play 1: Iowa Hawkeyes, Michigan State over 147.5 -110

Not often do we get this low of a number with the Iowa Hawkeyes, and there is value with the over. Michigan State is a solid defensive team, but they haven’t been exactly lights out all season. In the last game against Indiana, Michigan State gave up 82 points, and the defense is going to struggle to slow down the elite offense of Iowa. This game is going to reach at least 153 or 154. Back the over. 

Play 2: Rice Owls -1 -110 

The Rice Owls at basically a pick em, is too much value. The Charlotte 49ers have had a good season, but on the road, they have won only three of their eight games. Rice at home sits with a 9-2 record overall and they have won three games in a row across all contests. In the last game against North Texas, Rice only gave up 60 points and they are going to step up here. Back the Rice Owls. 

College Basketball Parlay Prediction #2

Play 1: St. Thomas Pick Em -110 

It’s been a tale of two seasons for the St, Thomas Tommies. When St. Thomas is at home they have gone 9-1 and away from home they are 4-9. This South Dakota State team has been okay this season, but away from home they have gone 3-7 straight up. Look for the St. Thomas offense to have a strong game, much like they have all season at home, and that is going to be the difference here. Back St. Thomas on the money line.

Play 2: Washington State Cougars +5 -110

This Arizona Wildcats offense isn’t as dominant as it was earlier in the season and that is going to allow Washington State to stay in this game. In the last game against UCLA, Arizona only managed 58 points. Washington State is giving up only 65.1 points per game and their defense is going to step up again here. Arizona might still win this game, but Washington State will keep it within four points.
