Thursday kicks off the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Tournament, and there is value all across these games. Let’s take a look at a couple of college basketball parlays to make your Thursday a winning one.
College Basketball Parlay Prediction #1
Pick 1: Michigan State Spartans -1.5 -110
The Michigan State Spartans have one big advantage heading into this game, they have Tom Izzo on the sideline. The Marquette Golden Eagles had a strong offense all season, but Michigan State locked down in the last game and only gave up 69 points. In this game, Michigan State’s defense is going to lock down the Kansas State Wildcats offense, and they are going to cover the spread.
Pick 2: Gonzaga Bulldogs, UCLA Bruins under 145.5 -110
The UCLA Bruins defense has been strong all season, and so far in the tournament, they haven’t given up more than 63 points. UCLA also knows to find success in this game, they probably don’t want to get into a shootout. UCLA has a good offense, but they also have a ton of confidence in winning games where they only score 63 or 64 points. The pace of this game is going to be lower scoring and the under is going to cash. $10 bet pays $26.45
College Basketball Parlay Prediction #2
Pick 1: Florida Atlantic Owls +5.5 -110
The Florida Atlantic Owls are going to keep this game close against the Tennessee Volunteers, and I think they could win this game outright. The Owls' offense has been strong all season, and even though they haven’t had the toughest road here, they have all the confidence in the world that they can beat Tennessee. The Owls' offense is going to be enough here to cover the spread.
Pick 2: Arkansas Razorbacks, UConn Huskies over 140.5 -110
The Arkansas Razorbacks and UConn Huskies are going to be involved in a higher scoring game. Arkansas put up 72 points against the Kansas Jayhawks, and they are going to score even higher than that. In the first game of the NCAA Tournament, UConn scored 87 points against Iona, and they are going to run up the score again in this game. Back the over to cash here. $10 bet pays $26.45
