It’s another loaded Saturday slate in college basketball as programs big and small are taking the court for another jam-packed day of hoops. With so many exciting games, I’ve combed through the board and found a few edges that I believe can create a parlay with an excellent payout of over 7/1 odds!

Kentucky Wildcats ML (+120) over Tennessee Volunteers
This is a great spot for a Kentucky team that is in desperate need for a Quad 1 win. The Wildcats are fresh off a road win over Mississippi State, but that won’t be enough to move the needle to put Big Blue Nation on the right side of the NCAA Tournament bubble. The Wildcats are going up against a Tennessee team that is fresh off its biggest win of the season after knocking off #1 Alabama on Wednesday. Even taking away the emotional hangover of that game, Kentucky still matches up well with the Volunteers. Tennessee is an elite defense, but Oscar Tshiebwe posted a 15-point, 13-rebound effort in the first meeting in January, a game in which Kentucky lead from wire-to-wire on the road. With their season hanging in the balance, I expect a similarly spirited effort from the ‘Cats on Saturday.

Indiana Hoosiers -4 (-110) over Illinois Fighting Illini
Last weekend, I faded Indiana on the road against a Michigan Wolverines team that was playing its best basketball of the season. And while the Hoosiers did come out victorious in that game, I chalked that up more to Michigan’s ineptitude down the stretch than an excellent Indiana closing run. The Hoosiers’ road struggles continued with a loss this week at Northwestern, setting up a great get-right spot at home against a team that struggles on the road. Indiana has been virtually unbeatable at Assembly Hall this season, particularly since the start of conference play. On the other side, Illinois has lost back-to-back road games, as the Illini defense is much worse away from Champaign this season. Look for Trace Jackson-Davis and company to bounce back in a big way at home.
Missouri Tigers -1 (-110) over Texas A&M Aggies
To close out our mega parlay, we’re going with the Missouri Tigers on their home floor. Missouri has been a pleasant surprise in the SEC this season, as the Tigers are one of the best 3-point shooting teams in the nation, to go along with a very efficient offense overall. From a situational standpoint, Missouri is in a perfect bounce-back spot after getting thrashed by Auburn earlier this week. Texas A&M has a good defense, but the Aggies have been living dangerously this season and escaped again on Wednesday with a late comeback victory over Arkansas. Texas A&M has won 4 straight, but 3 of those victories came at home over putrid offenses. This Tigers team should push the pace and force the Aggies to match their pace and tempo, which could prove troublesome for Buzz Williams’ team. Once again, I’ll ride with a home team in a great situational spot.
