Round 2 Same Game Parlay Picks for Round of 32

Creighton vs. Baylor

Over 145.5 Points (-115)

These two teams can flat-out score. Each of them took a bit to get going in their first games, but the second halves were huge for both. The Bluejays had 44 in the second half against the Wolfpack, while the bears had 39 in the second half of their game. Both of these teams average over 75 points per game, with the Bluejays shooting over 46% per game from the field.

Games have been trending Under throughout this tournament no matter what season stats show. However, according to KenPom, the Bears are second nationally in adjusted offensive efficiency and just 99th in defensive efficiency. This is going to be an up-and-down game that features a lot of shotmakers.

Ryan Nembhard 2+ Three-Pointers (-125)

One of those shotmakers is Ryan Nembhard. He has been quiet from beyond the arc in his last two games, but prior to his last two performances, he had two or more three-pointers in six of seven games.

The Bears allow their opponents to shoot just 32% from beyond the arc, so this will be a tough matchup for Nembhard. But he has put up at least three-point attempts in 11 consecutive games, and he is averaging exactly four attempts per game this season. He will put up enough attempts in this game to knock down two.

Adam Flagler 18+ Points (+130)

It’s hard to know what to expect from the Bears because they have so many players who can score. Flagler was the leading scorer in their first game, putting up 18. LJ Cryer had 15, and Caleb Lohner had a season-high 13. Lohner will not be as nearly involved in this one, which will open up more scoring opportunities for the other Bears.

Flagler has been the go-to guy all season long, so we like him to have at least 18. However, do not get carried away and pick him to score 20 in this one. He has only done that four times in his last 18 games. Yes, the line offers a much better price, but it’s much less likely to hit despite being just two points higher. 

Parlay Odds: +475


Fairleigh Dickinson vs. Florida Atlantic

Florida Atlantic -14.5 (-115)

What Fairleigh Dickinson did very well against Purdue was put pressure on them from the perimeter. The Boilermakers could not get clean shots and kept the ball away from Zach Edey. Purdue plays very slowly, and that was a benefit for the undersized FDU lineup to set up their defense.

Florida Atlantic is more of an uptempo team that will run up and down to move the ball. They also have their own big man, he isn’t Edey, but Vladislav Goldin is also a 60% shooter.

The faster tempo will make it difficult for the Knights to set up their defense and force turnovers.

Under 149.5 Total Points (-110)

FAU is excellent on each side of the ball, and KenPom has them in the top 40 in adjusted offense and defense. FDU is an excellent shooting team, and they can pull up from mid-range but will not attempt too many threes.

I don’t think the Knights will get that many possessions to make an impact, and their offence won’t push this total high enough for the over.

Johnell Davis Over 15.5 Points (-120)

Davis didn’t have the big game we’re expecting in the win against Memphis. Against a far inferior defense, I expect him to have a much better performance.

He shot well from three going 2-for-5 and will help him on Sunday. FDU was 226th in opponent three-pointers attempted and 274th in opponent three-point percentage.

Parlay Odds: +554


Miami vs. Indiana

Norchad Omier Over 9.5 Rebounds (-130)

Much was made of whether or not Omier would be able to play in the Hurricanes’ first-round game and rightfully so. Without him, the Canes would likely be at home watching the Drake Bulldogs play in this game.

Omier was a beast on the glass, pulling down 14 rebounds in the win. He was up against a much smaller Drake team, but Omier has put up great numbers against everyone. He averages 9.8 per game this season, and he has 10 or more boards in his last three full games.

Trayce Jackson-Davis Over 24.5 Points (+120)

While Omier’s presence was huge on the glass and on offense, he wasn’t able to handle Darnell Brodie inside. Brodie had 20 points and shot 64.3% from the field. It was his best performance of the season.

The Hoosiers have big men that are going to cause problems for the Hurricanes, and the best of the bunch is Trayce Jackson-Davis. He has scored 24 or more in five consecutive games, and there is nothing that the Hurricanes do defensively that makes it seem as though his streak won’t continue on Sunday.

Miami Over 75.5 Points (+120)

The Hurricanes were terrible offensively in their opening-round win. They made just 30.4% of their shots from the field, as they finished the game with just 17 made shots. The performance was shocking because the Canes are averaging 78.9 points per game, and prior to Friday, they had scored at least 70 points in 11 straight games.

The Hoosiers have allowed five of their last six opponents to hit the 70-point mark, including two who hit 80. The Canes like to play at a faster pace than they did Friday. It seemed they got their confidence at the end of the game, and that should carry through to Sunday. Even if they don’t win, they’re going to score plenty in this game.

Parlay Odds: +650
