March Madness R64 Friday Parlay Picks (2-3-4 Teamers)

Bracket Busted after the first day of March Madness? Don’t let that sour you on the rest of the NCAA Tournament.

Betting on the NCAA basketball tournament is big business—an estimated $9 billion might be spent gambling on March Madness this year. With that kind of money at stake, you have to have an extra edge to win and here are my March Madness parlay picks for day two of the Round of 64.

March Madness Two-Team Parlay Pick

  • Northern Iowa            -6
  • Buffalo                        +4.5

Northern Iowa vs. Wyoming

Analysis: Northern Iowa’s Seth Tuttle should be able to dominate Wyoming in this first round matchup. Tuttle leads the Panthers in points per game at 15.3, rebounds per game at 6.8 and assists per game at 3.3. He also leads the team in shooting percentage at 61.6%

More importantly, Tuttle is a proven leader. He’s the one who rallied Northern Iowa when they were down by 14 at half time versus Illinois State in the Missouri Valley Tournament to come back and win 69 to 60. His guys will definitely do enough for Northern Iowa to cover the spread in this matchup.  

Buffalo vs. West Virginia

Analysis: There are reasons to like West Virginia in this game. The Mountaineers have gone 5 and 2 against the spread in their last 8 games. But, West Virginia is also allowing teams to shoot 46.8% against it from the field.

That’s just not going to cut it against Buffalo. The Bulls can flat out light teams up. Buffalo has trouble versus really good defensive teams. Luckily for them, West Virginia is not a really good defensive team. If the Buff’s have their running game going, they’ll beat the Mountaineers straight up in this 5 versus 12 matchup.  

March Madness Three-Team Parlay Pick

  • Northern Iowa            -6
  • Buffalo                        +4.5
  • Louisville                    -8.5

Louisville vs. UC Irvine

Analysis: Louisville’s Montrezl Harrell is averaging 15.7 points and 9.5 boards per game. He got those averages in the ACC while facing teams like Duke, North Carolina and Virginia. Now, Harrell gets a chance to ply his trade against UC Irvine.
Th

UC Irvine Anteaters will try and counter Harell with Will Davis II who averages 12.8 points and 7 boards per game. Will Davis II is a good player, but he’s not at the level that Harrell’s out. If he does have success against Harrell, Terry Rozier and Will Blackshear figure to dominate the Anteaters’ other players. Louisville should roll.

March Madness Four-Team Parlay Pick

  • Northern Iowa            -6
  • Buffalo                        +4.5
  • Louisville                    -8.5
  • Maryland                    -5

Maryland vs. Valparaiso

Analysis: Valparaiso goes into this matchup after having won 3 games both straight up and against the spread. The Crusaders look like the type of team that could put a dent into Maryland’s plans to advance on Friday.

But, three important Valparaiso players are banged up:  guard Keith Carter, guard Darien Walker and guard Tevonn Walker. All three got hurt over the weekend in Valparaiso’s Horizon Tournament Championship win.

Maryland’s best player, Melo Trimble, has been phenomenal throughout this entire season. The fantastic freshman should be able to carve up Valparaiso’s defense. Trimble will lead Maryland to a close to 20 point win on Friday.
