March Madness Final 4

Alright you have a full day of Final Four games.

Let’s run you through the best bets and picks so you can make a little money while you watch.

Let’s dive in:

NC State (#11) vs. Purdue (#1):

First, the lines:

Here are your best picks straight up:

  • NC State +9 (-110 at DraftKings)
  • We still like Purdue to win, but this could be a close one. We don’t recommend taking either moneyline, but if you put a small amount on NC State, it has a much more attractive line.

Here is a great in-game parlay: +320 at DraftKings

  • NC State +9
  • D.J. Horne Over 15.5 points
  • Braden Smith Under 1.5 made 3s

Our Thoughts:

  • Zach Edey's standout performance with 40 points was crucial for Purdue's narrow victory over Tennessee in the Elite Eight, as the rest of the team struggled with a low shooting percentage.
  • NC State, on a nine-game winning streak, boasts a consistent offense led by D.J. Horne and D.J. Burns, and their efficient 3-point defense since the ACC Tournament could be a decisive factor against Purdue's 3-point shooting capabilities.

Alabama (#4) vs. UConn (#1):

First, the lines:

Here are your best picks straight up:

Here is a great in-game parlay: +550 at Bet365

  • UConn team total Over 86.5
  • Mark Sears Over 2.5 threes
  • Tristen Newton Over 6.5 rebounds

Our Thoughts:

  • Alabama's reliance on 3-point shooting clashes with UConn's defensive strength in limiting both the attempts and effectiveness of 3-pointers, presenting a challenging matchup for Alabama.
  • UConn's balanced offense, spearheaded by Tristen Newton and Donovan Clingan, positions them favorably to cover the spread with their efficient 2-point scoring.

Layer any of these bets together for a bigger parlay, and a bigger pay day!

UFC Allen vs. Curtis 2

Plenty of fights to dig in here.

But let’s focus on the headliner.

Brendan Allen vs Chris Curtis fight odds:

Pick: Chris Curtis ML (+170 at Bet99)

Pick: Over 2.5 rounds (-150 at Bet99)

Our Thoughts:

  • Brendan Allen's grappling advantage is neutralized by Chris Curtis's excellent takedown defense, making this a tough stylistic matchup for Allen.
  • Curtis's strengths in boxing and durability, combined with the smaller Apex octagon favoring his style, put the value on Curtis if the fight primarily remains standing.

Tale of the tape:
