Raise your hand if you had the Miami Hurricanes (29-7, 22-14 ATS) matching up with the UConn Huskies (29-8, 25-11-1 ATS) in your March Madness bracket. It’s likely nobody will have to put a hand down as the Final Four for this tournament of surprises continues on Saturday, April 1st in Houston.

Tipoff between the Canes and Huskies is set for 8:49 pm ET from NRG Stadium with CBS providing the broadcast coverage. These are two of the top offenses in the nation.

We’ve taken that into consideration while building a three leg same-game parlay for you to consider for this contest. Find our Miami vs UConn same-game parlay picks and the odds below.

Miami vs UConn Same-Game Parlay Picks

Pick Odds
Over 149.5 Points -110
Adama Sanogo 8+ Rebounds -185
UConn Huskies Moneyline -250

It’s not often a No. 4 seed finds itself as the highest seeded team remaining in the tournament, but that’s the case for the Huskies in this tournament of upsets. Taking that into account, UConn have been made 5.5-point favorites to defeat Miami and advance to the National Championship.

We’ve mapped out a three-leg parlay that pays out at very attractive +310 odds. It starts with a lot of buckets between two sides that thrive on offense.

SGP Pick #1: Over 149.5 Points

Get this number while you still can because the total has been trending upwards for this contest in the college basketball odds. According to KenPom, these squads own two of the top five adjusted offensive efficiencies in the nation, as opposed to the other Final Four contest where FAU ranks 24th and San Diego State ranks 75th in the country.

Miami has scored at least 80 points in each of their last three tournament wins, while UConn surpassed the 80-point plateau in both of last week’s victories. Only twice in the Hurricanes’ last 10 games have they scored less than 75 points, so combined, this should be an easy smashing of the over.

On the season, Miami averaged 79.6 points per contest, while UConn has put up 78.8 per outing with neither side showing any signs of slowing down. The beautiful thing about each team is that neither is reliant on one player to carry the offense, so if one player is slumping, there are a number of others that can pick up the slack.

SGP Pick #2: Adama Sanogo 8+ Rebounds

Arguably their best player in the tournament, Adama Sanogo has picked up at least eight rebounds in every game so far, and five straight going back to the Big East Tourney. All of this, while fasting for Ramadan.

Adama Sanogo NCAA Tournament Rebounding Stats

Date Opponent Total Rebounds
03/25/2023 Gonzaga 10
03/23/2023 Arkansas 8
03/19/2023 Saint Mary’s 8
03/17/2023 Iona 13

As the later of the two Final Four games, the Mali native will be able to get some nourishment in his body before tipoff, making him an even tougher player to deal with on the glass. Sanogo is the leading rebounder on the 12th best rebounding team in the country.

On the other end, attacking the boards is not something the Hurricanes do very well. They rank 185th overall amongst Division I teams and have allowed at least eight boards to the opposition’s leading rebounder in each of their four tournament games. If anybody is going to feast on this problem area for Miami, it’s Sanogo.

SGP Pick #3: UConn Huskies Moneyline

Undoubtedly, it’s been a tournament where you should expect the unexpected, but UConn is the best team remaining here and at -125, are healthy favorites in the odds to win March Madness.

Miami might be able to keep this one close, but the cream should rise to the top here. At one point this season, the Huskies were ranked number one in the country. Currently, they are the best team overall in adjusted efficiency margin according to KenPom.

Straight up, they are 10-1 in their last 11 games overall, with that one loss coming by just a single bucket to Marquette in the Big East tournament. The duo of Sanogo and Hawkins has been formidable and it feels like Dan Hurley will restore UConn to college basketball prominence, with the first stop this weekend coming in a win over the Hurricanes.
