Creighton vs. San Diego State: 2023 NCAA Tournament Elite 8 Same Game Parlay Picks (Sunday)

Mar 26, 2023 - 10:52 AM

The San Diego State Aztecs took down the No. 1 overall seed in the NCAA Tournament, the Alabama Crimson Tide, to advance to the Elite 8 against the Creighton Bluejays. For the Bluejays, they didn’t face a team quite at the level of Alabama in this tournament. Their best win to this point was over the third-seeded Baylor Bears.

San Diego State Over 67.5 (+100)

The Aztecs’ defense has been incredible all season long, and that impressive play has carried over into the NCAA Tournament. They held both the Charleston Cougars and Furman Paladins to under 60 points. And if you still weren’t convinced they were legit, they held the Crimson tide to just 64.

But the Bluejays have a really solid offense, so we recommend not playing the Under for this game. Instead, start your parlay with the Aztecs to score 68 or more points in this game. They have gone over 70 in their last two games and are actually averaging 72 per game this season. Most are only talking about their defense, but in a game where they’re going to have to score to keep up with the Bluejays, expect them to do just that.

Darrion Trammell 10+ Points (-115)

One of the leading scorers for the Aztecs on Sunday will be Trammell. He had 21 points against the Crimson Tide after a 13-point performance against the Paladins in the Round of 32. He has been wildly inconsistent from the field this season. Prior to his last two games, five of his previous six saw him score in double figures. 

But Trammell is a gamer, and he has shown up throughout the season when the Aztecs need him most. Look for him to continue his hot shooting against a Bluejays’ defense that allows 71 points per game.

Creighton -1.5 (-125)

So far, it seems like we’re taking the Aztecs, doesn’t it? Actually, we’re not. The Bluejays are going to win this game and advance to their first Final Four in team history. Many will point to the ease of their path to the Elite Eight as well as the Aztecs’ marquee win over the Crimson Tide, as reasons why the Bluejays will falter, but we disagree.

The Aztecs essentially won their national championship on Friday. They took down the No. 1 team in the country and advanced to their first Elite Eight ever. These huge victories point to a letdown for the Aztecs. Meanwhile, the Bluejays are still looking for a marquee win, and they are just going to simply be more up for this game. Look for a close game down the stretch that sees the Bluejays get enough shots to go in to seal the win.
