Top NCAA Basketball Parlay Picks Of The Weekend (Jan. 21st)


No. 11 Louisville and No. 10 Florida State

When: 2:00 PM ET, Saturday, January 21, 2017 Where: Donald L. Tucker Center, Tallahassee, Florida TV: ESPN Analysis: Heading into their huge matchup on Saturday, Louisville (16-3 SU, 12-5 ATS) had won four straight including an emphatic 92-60 blowout over Clemson on Thursday night. Conversely, Florida State (17-2 SU, 11-6 ATS) rebounded from a loss against North Carolina last Saturday to beat Notre Dame 8380 in a hard-fought matchup of Top 25 title hopefuls. Now, I’m going to advise you to back the Seminoles to get another victory against a legitimate title contender on Saturday to keep their perfect 13-0 home record intact while Louisville is one of the nation’s best defensive teams and give up eight fewer points per game than Florida State, the Seminoles are by far, the more explosive and athletic team in this affair, not to mention they have a chip on their collective shoulders to prove that they are indeed capable of  beating anyone in the country. While Louisville has gone 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games overall, the Cardinals are also just 2-5 ATS in their last seven games following an ATS win and an uninspiring 4-11 ATS in their last 15 road games. With Florida State going 4-1 ATS in their L/5 games following a straight up win, 12-5 ATS in their last 17 home games and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games against their Atlantic Coast conference counterparts, I say the Seminoles are the pick to win this game by four points. Pick: Florida State 77 Louisville 73

Providence at No. 1 Villanova

When: 12:00 PM ET, Saturday, January 21, 2017 Where: Wells Fargo Arena, Des Moines, Iowa TV: FOX Analysis: The Providence Friars (13-7 SU, 11-9 ATS) have won two straight coming into Saturday’s matchup, but they lost their two prior games and five of their previous six games overall. Having said that, I’m going to urge you to jump all over the Villanova Wildcats (18-1 SU, 12-6 ATS) to lay an emphatic spanking on their Big East rivals, seeing as how the defending national champions have won four straight since suffering their only loss of the season to Butler. Providence is an uninspiring 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games while Villanova has gone 7-0 ATS in their last seven Saturday games, 4-0 ATS in their last four games against their Big East conference rivals and a bankroll-boosting 18-6 ATS in their last 24 games overall. Villanova is the better team in every way and should beat the Friars by 10 points at the very least. If the spread is more than that, you should know that the Friars are 6-2 ATS in the last eight road games against Villanova while the road team in this series has gone 4-0 ATS in the last four meetings. Pick: Villanova 77 Providence 67

No. 13 Arizona at No. 3 UCLA

When: 4:00 PM ET, Saturday, January 21, 2017 Where: Pauley Pavilion, Los Angeles, California TV: CBS Analysis: Arizona (17-2 SU, 10-7-2 ATS) have won 11 straight games an got past USC 73-66 on Thursday night, but the Wildcats will be fighting an uphill battle against a UCLA Bruins (19-1 SU, 12-8 ATS) team that has won six straight games since getting upset by Oregon in late December and rolled all over the Arizona State Sun Devils in their emphatic 102-80 win on Thursday night as a whopping 19.5-point favorite no less. While Arizona is very good and has compiled a perfect 5-0 ATS mark in their last five road games, the Wildcats will be taking on a UCLA team that has gone 13-3 ATS in their last 16 home games against a team with a winning road record, 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games following an ATS win and 9-3 ATS in their last 12 home games overall. Not only that, but with the Bruins looking to extract some revenge for their 81-75 road loss against the Cats the last time they met, I say the Bruins are virtual locks to get the win by five or six points. Pick: UCLA 83 Arizona 77
