Florida Atlantic vs. San Diego State: NCAA Tournament Same Game Parlay Picks (4/1)

Apr 1, 2023 - 1:33 PM

The first game of the 2023 NCAA Tournament Final Four features two programs making their semifinal debuts. The Florida Atlantic Owls will look to pick up their 36th win over the San Diego State Aztecs, who are looking for their 32nd. The Owls are averaging 78.0 points per game but will need to decipher a defense that is allowing just 57.3 per game this season.

Best Florida Atlantic vs. San Diego State Same Game Parlay Pick 

Here is the best Florida Atlantic vs. San Diego State same-game parlay for Saturday, April 1st.

Under 131.5 (-120)

The Aztecs’ defense is allowing their opponents to knock down just 27% of their three-point attempts this season. We have already seen them do a great job against great shooting teams in Furman and Charleston, and they will probably draw up a similar game plan for the Owls, who are averaging 36.5% from beyond the arc this season.

The Owls have scored over 70 points in two games this tournament, but one of those was against the high-tempo Kansas State Wildcats’ offense, while the other was against Fairleigh Dickinson in a game where they controlled the tempo. The Aztecs are going to control the pace tonight, and when that happens, one of the two teams playing ends up in the 50s more often than not.

Bryan Greenlee 2+ Three-Pointers Made (+105)

Despite how good the Aztecs’ defense is, Greenlee is a shooter. You would have to go all the way back to February 25th to find a game where he didn’t make at least one three-pointer. In nearly every game this season, more than 50% of Greenlee’s made field goals came from behind the arc.

Greenlee was just 1-2 against the Tennessee Volunteers, the only team in the country with a better three-point defense than the Aztecs. But he has been outstanding as a role player in every other game this tournament, hitting at least two threes in each game. At the price this prop is offering, it is a must-add to the parlay.

Darrion Trammell 5+ Rebounds (+400)

Our final leg of this parlay focuses on a little guy cleaning up the boards. Guards pulling down a lot of rebounds is not unusual when the Owls take the court. Their guards have proven very difficult for opposing teams to handle after shots go up. But we’re going to choose Trammell, the point guard for the Aztecs, to have five or more rebounds instead.

He has five boards in his last two games, and in each of those contests, he played at least 30 minutes. It would be very surprising not to see him on the court for a similar amount of time tonight against the Owls. This is not simply a trend play. The Owls are a shooting team, and the Aztecs are great at defense. This is going to lead to a lot of long rebounds, which provides a great opportunity for Trammell and the other Aztec guards on the glass.
