NCAA Basketball - March 16, 2024

The real action will start next week, but here’s a little parlay to keep you satisfied. Even if we all know, you can’t get no satisfaction.

Here are some bets to keep you satisfied leading up to the Big One.

Parlay Odds: +595.79 (win $69.58 on a bet of $10)

  1. Princeton vs. Brown: Princeton is favored to win with odds of -525, indicating strong confidence in their victory. However, betting on favorites in parlays doesn't always offer the best value due to the reduced odds. Instead, the Over/Under on points might be a more interesting bet. Given the +10.0 line for Brown and the fact that they are considerable underdogs, a high-scoring game could be expected if Brown manages to keep it close.
  2. Pick: Over 140.0 (-110)
  3. UMass Lowell vs. Vermont: This game is more evenly matched, but Vermont being a 7-point favorite at -110 odds suggests they are expected to control the game. The Over/Under here is set at 133.5, which is relatively low, possibly indicating a defensive game. However, considering the stakes of the games around this time of year, teams tend to perform unexpectedly. With a tighter spread, Vermont's consistency could play a major role.
  4. Pick: Vermont -7.0 (-110)
  5. Saint Joseph's vs. Virginia Commonwealth (VCU): VCU is a slight favorite with a -2.5 point spread at -110 odds. This game appears to be one of the more balanced matchups, which can be ideal for a parlay. Given the narrow spread and the fact that both teams will be fighting hard, this game could be closer than anticipated. However, with VCU's slight edge, they might pull through without a significant margin.
  6. Pick: Saint Joseph's +2.5 (-110)

NBA Parlay & Picks - March 16, 2024

The NBA on Saturday! Always a good time. Check out these picks you can thread together into a parlay to make a little cash, and rub it in your friend’s face.


Golden State Warriors vs. Los Angeles Lakers:

Pick - Warriors +5.5 (-109)

  • The Warriors lost to the Mavericks with a final score of 109-99, struggling with a field goal percentage of 40.2% and making 9 out of 28 three-point shots. They managed 42 rebounds and 19 assists but allowed Dallas a 53.7% shooting accuracy.
  • Jonathan Kuminga stood out for the Warriors, scoring 27 points on 8 out of 17 shooting and grabbing 4 rebounds over 35 minutes, alongside 2 assists.
  • The Lakers were defeated by the Kings 120-107, despite a shooting efficiency of 48.7% and making 14 out of 32 three-point attempts. Austin Reaves contributed significantly with 28 points, 6 rebounds, and 4 assists in 37 minutes.

Brooklyn Nets vs. Indiana Pacers:

Pick - Pacers -9.5 (-109)

  • In their last game against the Magic, the Nets lost 114-106, shooting 46.9% from the field and 85.2% from the free throw line, but were outrebounded 34-32 by Orlando.
  • Cam Thomas contributed with 21 points, 8 rebounds, and 4 assists, shooting 47.4% for Brooklyn in their loss.
  • The Nets are struggling this season with a 26-40 record, averaging 111.8 points per game (25th in the NBA) and allowing an opponent field goal percentage of 47.2%.

New York Knicks vs. Sacramento Kings:

Pick - New York Knicks +7.5 (-109)

  • The Knicks secured a win against the Trail Blazers with a score of 105-93, thanks to shooting 43.7% from the field and making 23 out of 26 free throws.
  • Jalen Brunson was a key player for the Knicks, scoring 45 points from 14 of 30 shooting, along with 4 assists and 1 rebound in 38 minutes.
  • New York holds a 39-27 record for the season, excelling defensively by allowing only 108.1 points per game (2nd in the NBA) and forcing opponents into 13.1 turnovers per game.

England FA Cup - March 16, 2024

Here’s a fun little parlay you can use to make a few bucks while you watch some soccer:

Parlay Odds: +881

  • Leg 1: Nottingham Forest ML (+145)
  • Leg 2: Wolves ML (-160)
  • Leg 3: Manchester City ML (-430)
  • Leg 4: Tottenham ML (+100)

Our Thoughts:

  • Nottingham Forest ML over Luton (+145): After Luton's dramatic 4-3 loss to Bournemouth, despite leading 3-0, their morale may be too damaged to recover against Nottingham Forest. This match offers Forest an excellent chance to widen the gap from the relegation zone with a win over Luton, who is directly below them in the standings.
  • Wolves ML over Coventry (-160): With recent victories against top-tier teams and their consistent performance at home, Wolves are favored to win against Championship team Coventry in the FA Cup. Wolves' EPL experience and home advantage should be decisive factors in ending Coventry's FA Cup journey.
  • Manchester City ML over Newcastle (-430): Manchester City, aiming for a treble, is expected to dominate Newcastle in the FA Cup. With their sights set on success in the EPL, FA Cup, and Champions League, City's momentum and Newcastle's underwhelming season suggest a straightforward win for Guardiola's team.
  • Tottenham ML over Fulham (+100): Tottenham's recent form, including a 4-0 win at Aston Villa, positions them well for a victory against Fulham. A win would propel Spurs into 4th in the Premier League standings, with their potent attack likely proving too much for Fulham.
