Fairleigh Dickinson vs. Texas Southern: Best Same Game Parlay Picks

Odds via DraftKings Sportsbook

Fairleigh Dickinson +2.5 (-110)

The Tigers have been on this court each of the last two seasons, so they should be the more confident team entering this one. However, the Knights are simply the more talented team. It makes sense that in a game featuring such average teams that the team who has been there before would be favored, however, the Tigers have 14 wins this season.

The Knights had a solid regular season, and they finished second in the NEC. Perhaps many do not believe in them because they didn’t actually win the NEC Tournament, losing in the final to ineligible Merrimack College. If Merrimack was in this game, they would be favored. The Knights lost to them by one, so they should be favored as well.

Under 147 Points (-105)

The Knights are a top-50 scoring team in the country, but as we saw last night in the game between the Islanders and the Redhawks, these teams tend to come out a little tight on the biggest stage they’ve ever played on. In their three First Four wins, the Tigers have seen final totals of 110, 112, and 143.

Even going up against a high-scoring offense in last season’s First Four didn’t produce an Over. The Knights are a good scoring team, but these teams are going to see sluggish starts that will keep this total in the high 130s.

Demetre Roberts Over 3.5 Assists (+100)

It’s surprising to see this number as low as it is, considering Roberts is averaging 4.3 assists per game this season. Going up against a weak defensive team, you would think this would be listed at four or 4.5. Perhaps oddsmakers are expecting the Knights to struggle to score the ball.

Roberts has at least five assists in his last three games, and he had 17 total in the Knights’ NEC Tournament run. He barely ever comes off the floor, and the Tigers are allowing an average of 11.9 assists per game. He should continue to have the same numbers Wednesday night as he showed in his conference tournament.

Parlay Odds: +645
