  • Isaiah Wong has scored at least 20 points for the Hurricanes in three of his last four games
  • Check out our Miami vs Texas same-game parlay below, along with the odds

The last Elite Eight matchup takes place on Sunday, March 26th at 5:05 pm ET when the Miami Hurricanes (28-7, 21-14 ATS) play the Texas Longhorns (29-8, 19-17-1 ATS) at T-Mobile Arena. Both sides are coming off emphatic double digit victories in the Sweet 16.

Winning this matchup will set up a Final Four showdown with UConn, who came out of the West Region in the March Madness bracket. First things first though, it’s time to narrow down the field to four teams. We’ve got a three leg same-game parlay for you between the Hurricanes and Longhorns to maximize your winnings.

Our three leg same-game parlay between Miami and Texas pays out at hefty +290 odds if each pick hits. Texas are 4.5-point favorites to advance to the Final Four for the first time since 2003.

Although both teams had fairly comfortable wins in their previous contests, we think this will be a much tighter affair and that’s where our same-game parlay begins.

SGP Pick #1: Miami Hurricanes Alternate Spread +7.5

One of the best things about making a same-game parlay is moving the lines on certain picks and still receiving a good payout when you combine it with other bets. That’s what were doing with the first leg of our same-game parlay.

While they’re officially 4.5-point underdogs in the college basketball odds, we’ve pushed the spread to 7.5 because the chances of the Hurricanes losing by that margin is very remote when you look at the season they’ve had.

Miami has only lost two games outright since the beginning of February. Since the calendar flipped to 2023, their biggest margin of defeat was just seven points. They just beat the pre-tournament favorites in the odds to win March Madness by 14 points, so a big loss to Texas is highly unlikely.

SGP Pick #2: Isaiah Wong Over 15.5 Points

A number of players could potentially lead the Hurricanes in scoring on any given night, but it’s their point guard, Isaiah Wong, who is the straw that stirs the drink.

The junior drew a number of fouls last contest, going to the line 11 times. As an 84% free throw shooter, those are free buckets, helping push his point total up in each contest. He’s scored 20 or more points in three of his last four games and is just shy of the 40% mark from beyond the arc this year.

Over the course of the year, he’s averaged 16.2 points per game and has shown an ability to elevate his play when the stakes are higher. No game is much bigger than this one, with a Final Four berth on the line, so we predict Wong to come up big for the Canes in this spot.

SGP Pick #3: Texas Longhorns Over 70.5 Points

For the first time in NCAA history, not a single No. 1 seed made it to the Elite Eight, but that suits the Longhorns just fine as they currently own the shortest Final Four odds of the teams that are left.

Among the squads remaining in the tournament, Miami has by far the worst adjusted defensive efficiency according to KenPom, ranking 104th in the nation. On the flip side, Texas is in the top 5% of teams in the country in adjusted offensive efficiency, so they should have no problem exceeding the 70-point plateau.

Going back to the regular season, Texas has scored at least 71 points in nine of their last 11 games. In their first three tournament games, they’ve averaged 78.3 points per outing. Taking all these factors into account, we feel very confident they will go over the point total we’ve selected.
