Three Best March Madness Same Game Parlays for Thursday

It's a holiday today. It's March Madness day.

Let's waste no time. I've got three same-game parlays for today's games that I'm sharing below.

College Basketball Same-Game Parlays for Thursday

San Diego State Aztecs vs. Charleston Cougars

3-Leg Same-Game Parlay Odds (+548) (Bet $100 to collect $648) Get the best odds at FanDuel; click here to bet

  • Charleston +4.5 (-102)
  • Under 142.5 (-110)
  • Ante Brzovic Under 12.5 Points (-125)

This is going to be an evenly-matched game. San Diego State isn't that much better defensively than Charleston. Charleston has held teams to 30.3% from deep, while San Diego State has held 29.2% from deep. Both teams have allowed opponents to shoot just over 49% from inside the arc.

But Charleston has limited fouls better and has better on the defensive glass. San Diego State has shot the three-ball a bit better percentage-wise, but Charleston will take more threes. The Cougars are also better from inside the arc, shooting nearly 53% compared to San Diego State, shooting 49.4%.

Ante Brzovic only shoots 71% from the foul line and has hit 32% from downtown. He will have to score a lot of his points inside the arc, but Charleston would rather take a bunch of threes. This game is going under, and Brzovic's numbers will also go under.

Duke Blue Devils vs. Oral Roberts Golden Eagles

3-Leg Same-Game Parlay Odds (+455) (Bet $100 to collect $555) Get the best odds at FanDuel; click here to bet

  • Duke -6.5 (-102)
  • Over 145.5 (-110)
  • Kyle Filipowski Over 17.5 Points (+102)

The Duke Blue Devils are extremely hot. They're coming off an ACC Tournament Championship and look apart from the rest of the field.

Oral Roberts has been just as hot. However, they're going up against a Duke team that should probably be ranked a bit higher than a five-seed.

The Golden Eagles will struggle to earn offensive rebounds and won't get to the foul line nearly as much as Duke. The Blue Devils will ultimately have no problems scoring on the offensive end, thanks to Kyle Filipowski, who earned himself the ACC Newcomer of the Year award.

Filipowski is getting over 29% usage and is dominating the offensive glass to help earn second chances and score easy points around the rim. And while he's not shooting it lights out from downtown, he's still got the range and can hit threes when nobody's guarding him.

Tennessee Volunteers vs. Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns

3-Leg Same-Game Parlay Odds (+455) (Bet $100 to collect $555) Get the best odds at FanDuel; click here to bet

  • Louisiana +10.5 (-102)
  • Under 136.5 (-110)
  • Josiah-Jordan James Under 11.5 Points (-115)

The Tennessee Volunteers are a terrific defense. But I'm not sure they'll have enough offense in today's game against Louisiana.

The Vols have shot just 32.9% from downtown and 50.9% from inside the arc. And while they've succeeded on the offensive glass this season, Louisiana has held teams to 26.4% of offensive rebounds.

On the other hand, Louisiana is the better offense, shooting 36.6% from three and 52.2% from inside the arc. They'll have more trouble than usual going up against Tennessee. However, I still think Louisiana can be consistent enough to keep this game within single digits against Tennessee.

Plus, Josiah-Jordan James has only averaged 10.2 points per game this season. He had just three against Missouri in 22 minutes, taking seven shots while making one. He can get hot from downtown, but we already know that Tennessee won't crush it from downtown in this game.
