Gonzaga vs. UConn: NCAA Tournament Same Game Parlay Picks

Odds via FanDuel Sportsbook

(3) Gonzaga vs. (4) UConn

Leg 1 – UConn -2.5 (-105

The Huskies have dominated the offensive glass, earning 38.9% of offensive rebounds per game this season. The offense has also shot 36.4% from deep and 53.8% from inside the arc while hitting nearly 76% from the foul line.

The Huskies won’t win the free-throw battle. They might not even win the turnover battle. But they’ll undoubtedly get better looks from the floor.

UConn has held teams to 30.3% from three and 45% from inside the arc. UCLA’s defense had Gonzaga on the ropes but couldn’t score a field goal for ten minutes in the second half. As long as UConn can take the lead early, Gonzaga will have trouble returning.

It’s doubtful that UConn has a ten-minute scoring drought as UCLA did.

Leg 2 – Over 153.5 (-110

On the other hand, Gonzaga will still prolong the game. They’ll stretch possessions out. I think Gonzaga will be trailing throughout this game. So just like UCLA did in the Sweet 16, you can expect Gonzaga to do the same. They’ll stretch out the game, and more points will be scored.

Gonzaga is a fast offense. They’re not great at shooting free throws, as we saw with Drew Timme. But contested shots will still fall for the Bulldogs and help push this game over the total.

Again, UConn will get very nice looks from the field, and as long as they don’t hit a scoring drought for an extended period, they should be able to win this fast-paced game.

Leg 3 – Jordan Hawkins Over 16.5 Points (-104

Hawkins has only shot 40.7% from the field this year. He’s not highly efficient. But he had 24 against Arkansas in 28 minutes and hit 6-of-13 from the field. Nine of those 13 shots were from deep, and he buried three. In the game prior, Hawkins went 4-for-5.

He’s shooting nearly 38% from three. Meanwhile, Gonzaga allows teams to shoot 35.2% from three this season. The Huskies will be fine on offense, and Hawkins will run the show around the perimeter.

Hawkins typically takes around seven or eight threes per game and has been getting to the foul line several times per game. His offensive rating is 95th in the nation, and he’s very good at holding onto the ball. Look for Hawkins to have a big night.
