Xavier vs. Texas: NCAA Tournament Same Game Parlay Picks (3/24)

Mar 24, 2023 - 11:30 AM

We’ve already seen a No. 2 seed go down in the Sweet 16, and Texas would not like to see that same fate. That will be tough because Xavier comes in playing well, and they have an offense that can keep up with Texas. We have a great chance to see some significant moments with the level of shooting talent each side has, so let’s look at a same game parlay for this matchup.

Xavier vs. Texas: Friday’s Best Same Game Parlay

Odds via DraftKings Sportsbook

Xavier +4.5 (-115)

Xavier is coming in with one of the best offenses in the country by scoring the sixth most points. They’re very methodical, love to move the ball, and will make the extra pass. Their goal will be to get Texas out of rhythm defensively and find the open shot.

They have confidence in their lineup, with four players averaging double-digit points per game. One of those guys who I think will play a huge part is Jack Nunge. The seven-footer is strong at the rim on both ends and can shoot from the perimeter.

Texas can match that athleticism and tempo, adding their defense is why I have them winning, but the Musketeers can keep this at a single possession.

OVER 149.5 Total Points (-110)

As mentioned, the Longhorns have the lineup to keep up Xavier’s pace. They don’t have the size or the three-point shooting like the Musketeers, but they will find the lanes and take the high-percentage shots.

Both teams come with several shooters that can get hot and go on runs. Both teams will have a high-possession game, and the over is the best bet.

Jack Nunge OVER 13.5 Points (-122)

I’ll ride with Nunge to have a great game. I talked about how he can bang inside the boards but will also take an outside shot which will benefit Xavier tonight.

Texas is similar to Pitt in that they play a smaller lineup and utilize their quickness for their offense. No one on the Longhorns roster can post up to Nunge, and he should get close to the 18-point performance he had against Pitt.
