College Basketball Picks: Building Around Iowa and Gonzaga

We have a pretty limited college basketball slate tonight, so I figured that we needed to cook up a little parlay to get us rich before the weekend. Here is what I am looking at!

College Basketball Picks

Leg 1: Iowa ML

Iowa comes into this game in need of a win, and what better spot for it than facing a bad Ohio State team? Ohio State began the season ranked, but it has been a forgettable year for the Buckeyes, and they would be lucky to get invited to the NIT. Iowa, meanwhile, will be a tournament team, but they are playing for seeding at this point. The Hawkeyes are 16-9 overall and 8-6 in the conference.

This is a solid Iowa team that, in typical Iowa fashion, is known for its fast pace and offense. The Hawkeyes come into this contest averaging 80.6 points per game as a team. I will be backing Iowa on the money line tonight. Ohio State's season is a lost cause at this point, and I would be shocked if this Iowa team loses to them twice in the same season. The Hawkeyes will take care of business tonight. 

Leg 2: Gonzaga ML

Two things can be true. This is not the same Gonzaga teak that we have seen in past years, and Gonzaga is still very good. The Zags will visit LMU tonight, looking to get revenge after dropping a game earlier in the year against LMU. I expect a focused effort from the Zags tonight, and I believe that they will be too much offensively to keep pace with tonight. Let’s cash this parlay in!
