NCAAB Thursday parlay picks, betting predictions and odds

National Collegiate Athletic Association

The NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship continues on Thursday with five ranked teams taking the court. Let’s check out some of the best parlay picks on offer at the top-ranked NCAAB betting sites.

Michigan State Spartans at Seton Hall Pirates

Betting line: Michigan State -6.5
Over/under: 141.5

Michigan State were the top-ranked team coming into the season but lost their season opener to Kentucky. The Spartans crushed Binghamton 100-47 in their last game to pick up their first win of the season. The loaded team has four players averaging in double figures, led by senior guard Cassius Winston (19 ppg) and forward Xavier Tillman (12 ppg, 8.5 rpg).

Seton Hall have won their first two games easily but have not faced any powerhouse teams with wins over Wagner and Stoney Brook. Sandro Mamukelashvili leads the team at 14 ppg and four Pirates are averaging in double figures.


Mamukelashvili is a forward and the next four leading scorers for Seton Hall are guards. That will be an issue in this game, as the Spartans can play good perimeter defense.

Michigan State have covered the spread in nine of their last 13 road games, and that trend will continue. Their perimeter defense will keep the Pirates from having a good shooting game and the Spartans will get the win and cover the spread.

PICK: Michigan State -6.5 at -111.11 with Bovada

Penn State Nittany Lions at Georgetown Hoyas

Betting line: Georgetown Hoyas -1
Over/under: 148.5

Penn State have won both of their games in blowouts and this one is their first facing a team from a major conference. Lamar Stephens leads the team with 15 ppg and four players are averaging at least 11 ppg. The Nittany Lions were 14-18 last season and this game facing Georgetown will be their first real test.

Georgetown have also won their first two games, but they were not in blowouts and both teams they beat are not in Division 1. Omer Yurtseven is off to a good start, leading the Hoyas in scoring (18.5 ppg) and rebounding (13.5 ppg). Three other players are averaging in double figures for a Georgetown team that, dating back to last season, has failed to cover the spread in four consecutive games.

The Hoyas have not looked impressive beating a couple of minnows, and facing Penn State they will struggle on both ends of the floor. The Nittany Lions will win and cover on the road, improving to 3-0 on the young season.

PICK: Penn State +1 at -111.11 with Bovada

Towson Tigers at Florida Gators

Betting line: Florida -18
Over/under: 130

Towson are coming off their first loss of the season, falling to Kent State 84-80. The high-scoring Tigers have five players averaging at least 12 ppg, led by Nigel Haughton (17 ppg).

Florida were upset in their last game, losing to an unranked Florida State team 63-51. The Gators were ice cold in that game, shooting 28% from the floor. Kerry Blackshear Jr. leads the team with 15 ppg and 11.5 rpg, and Keyontae Johnson is the only other Florida player averaging in double figures at 13 ppg.

Towson are the big underdogs in this game, and they will come out gunning. They will face a good Florida defense, but the Tigers will still put up quite a few points. Florida will as well, as Towson have not played good defense so far on the young season. In this game there will be solid scoring from both teams, which is why the Over is the solid pick.

PICK: Over 130 points at -111.11 with Bovada
