Alabama vs. Memphis: Pick Alabama -5
(Tip 9 p.m. ET)

Alabama has put together a nice-looking squad this season as they begin 8-1. The verticality at the wing allows them to play fast pace, and they are eighth in offensive efficiency this season. Most notably is their ability behind the arc, and they shoot from long range often as they attempt a three-pointer on 43.8% of their shots. Leading the pack is guard Jaden Shackelford, shooting 45.6% from three-point range, but they also have J.D. Davison, Keon Ellis, and Darius Miles, who can also hit their marks.

Memphis is more of a low post team with seven-footer Jalen Duren averaging 10.4 points and 7.8 rebounds per game that helps the Tigers get the rebound advantage on a nightly basis. The problem with Memphis has been the turnovers as they are 350th with turning the ball over on 25% of their possessions.

Memphis is in a tough spot to beat Alabama. The Tigers will continue the turnover and allow easy points to the Crimson Tide. The best chance for Memphis to get a win is if Bama shooting all of a sudden goes cold, but we haven’t seen that yet this season.

Furman vs. UNC: Pick Furman +11.5
(Tip 7 p.m. ET)

UNC has some trouble playing consistently this season. Along with back-to-back losses, they haven’t looked good during some of their wins. Although they won by 17 against Elon, they did not play well by shooting 10-34 in the first half and committed with 16 turnovers in total. 

This game will not be a cakewalk non-conference matchup as Furman already has a win against a big-name school this season when they beat Louisville in November. Furman loves to fire the ball from long range as they have the tenth-most three-point attempts per game (29.7), and they’re hitting the triples at an incredible rate of 39.4%.

If the Paladins can hit their shots, they can keep this game close, and they need to play that type of game as the Tar Heels have the size advantage in the frontcourt to beat them in the boards. 

Furman is in a great spot to make UNC play hard for all 40 minutes.

Miami (OH) vs. Clemson: Pick over 138.5
(Tip 7 p.m. ET)

Clemson is coming off battle on Saturday as Drake took them to the brink in overtime, but forward PJ Hall was able to help the Tigers push through for the 90-80 win. Hall has been an absolute force in the frontcourt, but you can’t ignore the duo of guard Al-Amir Dawes, who’s shooting 48.1% from behind the arc, and David Collins, who’s leading the team with a 54.5 field goal percentage. For Miami (OH), their backcourt has also been amazing to watch with Mekhi Lairy, who had 18 points in their heartbreaking 69-68 loss to Indiana State, and Dae Dae Grant, who are both averaging over 15 points per game.

The guard play will be exciting to watch as all of these guys can create and hit shots. Add the battle on the boards between the RedHawks forward Dalonte Brown and the Tigers Hall, and it should be exciting with these two go at it. The 139 total is a great number to grab in the over as each team easily can put up their share of points as they’re both averaging over 70 points per game.

Total Parlay Odds (FanDuel): +608
