Top College Basketball Parlay Picks For The Weekend Action (March 4th)

Posted by Peter Brennan on Friday,March 3, 2017 5:15, EST in

With just one game remaining in the NCAA college basketball regular season, it’s time for one final round of weekend parlay picks. I’ve got three, damn-near lock selections on a trio of intriguing matchups that will help you cap off your 2016-17 NCAA regular season basketball betting campaign in style.

Now, let’s get started with the latest NCAA basketball point spreads.

Top College Basketball Parlay Picks For The Weekend Action (March 4th)

 

 

No. 6 Oregon (26-4) at Oregon State (5-25)

When: Saturday, March 4 at 6:00 PM ET
Where: Gill Coliseum, Corvallis, Oregon
TV: ESPN2

Analysis: The sixth-ranked Oregon Ducks are the easy pick to take down an Oregon State Beavers squad that has nothing left to play for in what has been one of their worst hoops seasons in recent memory.

Oregon has won five straight and seven of their last eight games while Oregon State has dropped two straight and nine of its last 10 games overall. The Ducks pounded the Beavers senseless in their 85-43 win on Jan. 14 to cash in as a 25-point home favorite and I like them to win again by 20, this time as a road favorite of about 16 points.

Pick: Oregon 82 Oregon State 62

Washington State (13-16) at No. 3 UCLA (27-3)

When: Saturday, March 4 at 10:15 PM ET
Where: Pauley Pavilion, Los Angeles, California
TV: ESPN

Analysis: While the streaking, third-ranked UCLA Bruins have won an impressive eight straight games, Washington State has limped to a pitiful 3-7 SU mark over their last 10 games. UCLA has won two straight in this series and smacked the Cougars around like a bunch of high schoolers in their 95-79 road win on Feb. 1 despite narrowly failing to cover the spread as a 16.5-point road fave.

With Lonzo Ball and the rest of the loaded Bruins averaging almost 20 points per game more than the Cougars while giving up just over one fewer point per game defensively, I say the Bruins are a lock to get the double-digit home win and narrowly cover the spread. The home team in this Pac-12 rivalry is 8-1 ATS in the last nine meetings.

Pick: UCLA 92 Washington State 70

Xavier (18-12) at DePaul (9-21)

When: Saturday, March 4 at 2:00 PM ET
Where: Allstate Arena, Rosemont, Illinois

Analysis: If you’re old enough to remember when DePaul was a national powerhouse, then you know the Blue Demons are now a pretty sad hoops program.

While previously nationally-ranked Xavier has hit the skids at the worst time possible by dropping six straight games coming into this Big East battle, I believe the Musketeers are still the easy pick to take down a DePaul squad that has lost two straight and nine of its last 10 games overall. Xavier has won four straight in this series and the Musketeers are the better statistical team at both ends of the floor.  Keep it simple, Xavier wins by eight!

Pick: Xavier 79 DePaul 71
