I'm an editor here at Pickswise who was raised in a household full of sports fanatics. Since I unfortunately never had LeBron James' jumping ability I wasn't able to make it to the NBA, and chose writing about sports as the next best thing. An avid sports bettor myself, I'm excited to get to write about the industry as it gets set to take off across the country. Buckle up.

It sure is great to have college basketball back in full swing, and I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving yesterday. Now it’s time to turn our attention to a loaded Black Friday college basketball slate. What better way to celebrate the new season than by going for a big payday? That’s right; we’re back with another mega parlay, college hoops edition. We’re going big and bold again, so let’s not waste any more time.

But before we dive in, don’t forget to check out our free picks on the side and total for every big NCAAB game.

Arizona State ML (+240)

Towson ML (+136)

Oregon State ML (+160)

Parlay odds: +1986

Let’s break down each of the three legs one by one.

Arizona State ML (+240) over Loyola Chicago

To start this mega parlay off I’m going with Arizona State on the money line. The Sun Devils have gotten off to a rough start, but now is the time to buy-low. Their first loss was by one point to UC Riverside on an insane three-quarters court shot at the buzzer. They lost by two points on the road to SDSU. Their last two games have been against an elite Baylor team and a very good Syracuse one.

The schedule has been insanely difficult, and they’re being undervalued as a result. On the flip side, I haven’t been too impressed with Loyola Chicago. The Ramblers started off with four straight wins against weak competition, but now that the schedule has toughened up they’ve dropped back to back games. Getting better than 2/1 with ASU here on a neutral court is too good to pass up.

Towson ML (+136) over New Mexico

For the second leg of this mega parlay we’re going to a much lower profile game. Give me Towson over New Mexico. The Tigers have showed an impressive amount of fight this season. In their most recent game, they nearly pulled off a huge upset against a San Francisco team ranked 37th by Kenpom. They trailed by only three points with two minutes to go in that one. Right before that they had beat Penn by 15.

New Mexico on the other hand hasn’t done anything too impressive. The best team they’ve beaten so far is Montana State. The defense has been awful, and they’ve failed both of their two big tests. I mean, this is a team that gave up 92 points to FAU. I really don’t see any reason for the Lobos to be this big of a favorite here.

Oregon State ML (+160) over Wake Forest

To wrap this mega parlay up and hopefully bring us home, we’ve got Oregon State later in the night. The Beavers have started 1-4, but it would be hard for that record to be any more misleading. Incredibly, each of their last two losses have come by a single point. Their loss before that was by just six points on the road. These teams are in polar opposite boats, because Wake Forest has started 5-0, but that record is fraudulent.

The best team the Demon Deacons have beat is North Carolina A&T. They rank 257th in Kenpom. According to Kenpom, Wake Forest’s strength of schedule so far ranks 356th. There are only 358 D1 teams. It would’ve been nearly impossible for them to have started out with a softer slate, and I think they’ll get exposed here. Buy low and sell high, as they say.
