Sweet 16 Parlay Picks Thursday 28: Ride With UNC, Arizona

Here’s a look at our college basketball picks for the best parlay on the opening night of the Sweet 16.


Sweet 16 Picks: UNC Tops ’Bama

The amount of North Carolina slander is a bit puzzling since the Tar Heels have been one of the top teams in college basketball this season. North Carolina is a 4 ½-point favorite versus Alabama in the NCAAB odds, making them the shortest favorite of the No. 1 seeds outside of Houston.

Yes, Bama has looked sharper in the NCAA Tournament. It is worth noting the Crimson Tide’s opening opponents, No. 13 Charleston and No. 12 Grand Canyon, were not the most challenging matchups.

Things will be much different against UNC. The Crimson Tide is going to struggle to find a way to slow down the Tar Heels’ offense.




Look for North Carolina to top Alabama on their way to the Elite Eight.


Sweet 16 Predictions: Arizona Makes Short Work of Clemson

Likewise, we are riding with the favorite and taking Arizona to top Clemson. The Wildcats have the balance on offense and defense to make a run to the Final Four.


The duo of Keshad Johnson and Caleb Love will likely pose problems for the Tigers. Arizona’s notable wins this season include Duke, Michigan State, Colorado, Oregon, and Alabama.


Sweet 16 Parlay Picks: Bet Arizona, North Carolina

The simplest way to bet this parlay is to take the Arizona and North Carolina moneylines. This avoids having to sweat out either team covering the spread.

If you want an increased payout, I am okay taking both teams to cover in the NCAA basketball odds. Another option would be to do a three-team moneyline parlay by adding UConn.

The challenge is this offers minimal added payout while taking on a bit more risk even though San Diego State faces long Las Vegas College Basketball odds to win.

Regardless, the heart of this Sweet 16 parlay is Arizona’s Love to get a rematch with his former team with a Final Four spot on the line.
