💰 March Madness Sweet 16, NBA, Euro 2024 🏀

👀

So whose bracket is still perfect?

That’s a trick question. None are. But even if you aren’t perfect, you can still bet on the games and win your March Madness pool with your friends.

The Sweet 16 kicks off on Thursday.

So naturally, we’re going to deep dive those games and get you ready to show everyone up.

But a bit of trivia first.

NC State, the only 11 seed still in the tournament, is making their third appearance in the Sweet 16.

NC State has actually won 2 national championships in its history (1974 and 1983). I wouldn’t have guessed.

Now, onto the betting.

If you’re into betting on the National Champion, here are the current odds:

March Madness Sweet 16

So let’s dig into the Thursday Sweet 16 games.

We’ll get you some picks so you can lace them into a parlay.

So first, the lines.

Here is Bovada:

Here is ESPN Bet:

Clemson vs. Arizona (-6.5 [-120], 151.4)
San Diego State vs. UConn (-10.5 [-115], 135.5)
Alabama vs. North Carolina (-3.5 [-120], 173.5)
Illinois vs. Iowa State (-2.5 [-105], 146.5)

Here are some solid parlays you can use to make the games more interesting:

Illinois vs. Iowa State: Illini +2.5 + OVER 146.5 (+264)

  • This highly anticipated game features high-scoring Illinois and Iowa State teams, with Illinois' offense expected to outperform Iowa State's strong defense, supported by their recent impressive scoring above their season average in neutral-site games.

Clemson vs. Arizona: Clemson +7.5 + UNDER 151.5 (+264)

  • Despite oddsmakers favoring Clemson with a large point spread and skepticism towards Arizona's recent form, Clemson's efficient shooting and solid performance suggest they can cover the spread against Arizona, who has shown vulnerabilities.

UConn ML (-600) vs San Diego State

  • It’s hard to see how the Aztecs (53rd on offense, per KenPom) can keep pace with a deep Huskies offense that features a terrific combination of strong guard play along with an interior presence.

Clemson +7 (-110) vs Arizona

  • The Tigers play at a slow pace (237th), which is the polar opposite of Arizona’s uptempo style (15th). Look for Clemson to bring down the pace in this one, resulting in fewer possessions and a closer game.

NBA Matchups and Parlays

It’s never enough basketball is it?

So here’s a little NBA parlay to liven up your Tuesday.

Dallas Mavericks (41-29) vs. Sacramento Kings (41-29) 

Prediction: Take the Dallas Mavericks at +1.5 (-110)

  • Despite Sacramento's previous wins against Dallas this season, Dallas's recent form and slightly better defensive play are expected to secure them a victory in a closely contested game.

Golden State Warriors vs. Miami Heat

Prediction: Miami Heat +110

  • The Heat's strong defense against three-pointers and ability to force turnovers, coupled with their high free throw percentage and midrange scoring strategy, position them favorably for a win against the Warriors at home.

Los Angeles Lakers vs Milwaukee Bucks

Prediction: Milwaukee ATS -8.5 (-110)

  • The Milwaukee Bucks, with a 46-25 record, excel offensively with a high scoring average and field goal percentage

Euro League 2024 Qualifying
