College Basketball Betting – Saturday Parlay Picks

With the NFL season coming to an end following the conclusion of the Super Bowl this weekend, it’s time to look at other wagering options. One sport with an abundance of teams and games nearly every day is NCAA college basketball. With over 350 programs competing at the Division I level, and lines and spreads for nearly every game, college hoops is fun to bet. With so many teams oddsmakers oftentimes neglect certain schools and games simply because of the volume. That means value picks are out there if you’re willing to do the work and doubling up on a parlay can be very profitable.

If our first Saturday of college basketball parlay picks is as good as our Wednesday NBA selections, readers will be raking in the cash at the betting window of their favorite sportsbook. We hit on four of our five Wednesday picks with those used as a point of reference. When playing a multi-team parlay you have to hit all picks in order to cash a winning ticket. Therefore it might be a better strategy to stick to two or three games giving you a better chance of winning. As a reminder you can bet college basketball parlays at with odds for every game on the Saturday schedule.

Kentucky Wildcats vs Georgia Bulldogs

This isn’t the Kentucky squad were used to seeing. The club has experienced more downs than ups this season, but that’s all relative given that anything short of a national championship is a failure in Lexington. Most programs in the country would happily take a 16-8 record at this point. The Cats need a surge to make sure their tournament chances are strong and you know they are perturbed following Tuesday’s blowout home loss to Arkansas. The Hogs were blistering hot from the field hitting better than 60 percent of their field goals and UK’s Oscar Tshiebwe was a non-factor scoring only seven points. Those two scenarios will not play out again giving the Wildcats a good chance at picking up a road win.

Kansas Jayhawks vs Oklahoma Sooners

With just one win in their last seven games it might be time to fade the Sooners. And Saturday’s matchup with No. 9 Kansas looks like a good time. I’m not ready to abandon OU just yet, though. The Sooners have some impressive wins on their resume like their 93-69 destruction of No. 2 Alabama a few weeks ago. They’ve also played the top teams in the Big 12 close losing by a point to Texas, three points to Iowa State, and a tough 79-75 setback at Kansas last month. They will be catching points at home against a Jayhawks squad that’s lost its last three Big 12 road games while going 0-3 ATS. Oklahoma nearly pulled off the upset in the earlier meeting holding a 10-point lead with a little over five minutes remaining. Leading scorer Grant Sherfield netted 25 points, but the Sooners sent KU to the free throw line 39 times, which was the difference. There’s a good chance the calls go the other way with the Sooners on their home floor.

CBB Parlay Pick: Oklahoma ATS

Utah State Aggies vs San Jose State Spartans

This is one game that caught my eye that looks like a mismatch on paper. The Mountain West Conference rivals tip off Saturday night in San Jose with the Spartans enjoying one of their finest seasons in recent memory; and they’re doing it with the help of an impressive home record. Nine of their 14 wins have come in San Jose where they boast a 7-3 ATS mark. And while they’ve struggled on the road, the Spartans nearly upset the Aggies in Logan on Jan. 21 losing 75-74 as an 11-point dog. The Spartans have broken down a number of barriers this season and have played good ball. They may not beat Utah State, but I’ll back the points.

CBB Parlay Pick: San Jose State ATS

Long Beach State Beach vs Cal State Bakersfield Roadrunners

Another mid-major matchup that got my attention is this one between Long Beach State and Cal State Bakersfield. The Beach has put together a six-game winning streak going 4-2 ATS. They’ve also averaged 82 points during that run. Lassina Traore is one of the best kept secrets in college basketball averaging 11.8 points and 11.0 rebounds for the season. And he’s been a monster during the streak averaging 15 points and 17 boards. I don’t think the Roadrunners have anyone to match what Traore brings giving The Beach a healthy advantage in the paint and that’s enough for me to back him and LBSU against the spread.
