Tuesday NCAAB Parlay: Fade Carolina ATS

Three teams with national championship aspirations are all on the road on Tuesday, but only No. 4 Marquette is looking like a solid bet when looking at the college basketball odds.

North Carolina and Wisconsin are both road favorites, and while the Tar Heels and Badgers are expected to win, it might be a tough ask for both of them to cover in these road affairs.

Tuesday NCAAB Parlay: Fade Carolina ATS

Kansas was the only ranked team to play on the road on Monday and it would be quite the understatement to suggest that it was a tough night at the office for the Jayhawks. We aren’t calling for Marquette, North Carolina or Wisconsin to lose by 29 points, but there are some bets worth considering when it comes to a three-game parlay in NCAAB games tonight.

When looking at the odds of winning March Madness, North Carolina (+1400) has the fifth-best championship odds. Marquette comes in at +2800 while Wisconsin’s title odds have tumbled to +4000.

Here are three parlay options to consider heading into Tuesday”s action.


Marquette to Cover as -4 Road Favorites

Before Marquette heads to Connecticut for the game of the year during the regular season in the Big East, the Golden Eagles have a shorter road trip to meet up with Butler.

Marquette has won two of its last three games at Butler and the Golden Eagles have some business to take care of after being upset as the 11.5-point favorite at home by the Bulldogs 69-62 last month.

Even though Marquette is just 2-3 outright as a road favorite this season, look for the fourth-ranked Golden Eagles to soar past Butler in this matchup in the first of our college basketball picks and parlays.


Orange You Glad to Take Underdog Syracuse (+8) at Home

This is hardly the best Syracuse team in recent memory. However, the Orange are still a tough team to pull away from at home.

The last three times that North Carolina played at Syracuse, the Tar Heels won by four, lost by two and lost by 28.

We expect North Carolina to win but in the Tar Heels’ last two road games, they lost to unranked Georgia Tech in one of the most surprising results of the ACC basketball season and were lucky to escape with a three-win win against a struggling Miami team.

Going with Syracuse as +8 underdogs on a snowy winter day just feels right even if the Orange are just 2-2-2 against the Las Vegas odds in the last six games as a home underdog.


Ohio State (+9) Worth the Risk at Wisconsin

It is hard to have much confidence in Wisconsin right now since the Badgers have dropped four games in a row.

Three of those losses have come on the road and the Badgers will be back at home to face Ohio State.

Wisconsin is 11-2 at home while Ohio State is 0-6 on the road. Three of those conference road losses for the Buckeyes are by eight points or less.

Do we expect Ohio State to leave Madison with its first road win of the season? No. However, that nine-point spread is rather enticing against a Wisconsin team that is coming off a 22-point loss to a mediocre Rutgers team.
