College Basketball Parlay Picks for Tuesday, February 21, 2023

By Mike Rose

After churning out winning cards with my college basketball parlay picks all of last week, I kicked last week off by giving some of the profits back to PointsBet Sportsbook. Creighton gave it their all but ultimately fell 94-86 in double overtime at Providence. Oklahoma State battled Kansas tough for the first 18+ minutes of the first half, but fell off the tracks in the final two minutes and it carried over into the second half where the Jayhawks went on to log the 87-76 win and cover. Thankfully we avoided taking the collar after Michigan and Wisconsin played to 64-59 final that allowed us to easily cash our ticket on the under. Let’s say we get back to adding to the bankroll with three more investments to confidently throw back into parlay cards on Super Tuesday!

Tennessee Volunteers vs. Texas A&M Aggies


Date and Time: Tuesday, February 21, 2023 at 7 PM EST


Location: Reed Arena, College Station, TX


TV Coverage: ESPN


As remarkable a season Alabama has put forth to date, it’s bonkers to accept Buzz Williams’ Texas A&M Aggies are within striking distance of stealing the SEC regular season title away from them. That however is the reality! With four games remaining on the docket, Texas A&M must hold serve in this home tilt against Tennessee and then take down both Mississippi schools on the road to be in a position to make it a reality. With that, I firmly expect Wade Taylor IV and Co. to come out like gangbusters in an attempt to defend its turf against the Jekyll and Hyde Vols.


Whether they do or not remains to be seen. What I do know however is that A&M’s stellar defense will take to its home hardwood where it’s held six of seven SEC opponents to 66 or less points. The only team to surpass that mark was Auburn in a game it still went on to win and cover. As great the defense has been to date, the other end of the court has left a bit to be desired. It ranks No. 193 in field goal percentage and will have all sorts of trouble dealing with what the Pomeroy Ratings deem the best efficiency defense in the country. So long as multiple offensive rebounds for both sides don’t result in numerous cheap put backs and it doesn’t go to OT, I don’t foresee the combined score coming anywhere close to threatening the 125+ point total.




Texas Tech Red Raiders vs. Oklahoma Sooners


Date and Time: Tuesday, February 21, 2023 at 9 PM EST


Location: Lloyd Noble Center, Norman, OK


TV Coverage: ESPN2


We backed the Red Raiders in Morgantown over the weekend and Mark Adams’ kids didn’t disappoint. If you read my NCAA Tournament Futures odds piece last week, you’ll know that Texas Tech was the big dog I touted just in case this team continues its end of season tear and finds a way into the Big Dance by way of winning the Big 12 tourney. Yes, I’m saying that with a straight face! The Red Raiders have rattled off three straight wins against K-State, Texas and WVU and enters this matchup having covered six of its last seven games.



On top of that, it’ll invade Norman seeking same season revenge after Boomer Sooner went into Lubbock and handed them a sickening 68-63 overtime defeat as 5-point underdogs in a game Kevin Obanor and Co. only connected on 2 of 18 shots from beyond the arc. While OU has come out of nowhere to score some solid wins to date, it for the most part has failed to live up to its talent. The Sooners stand 2-4 SU at home in conference play and stands 1-2 ATS the three times it laid points last disposing of Kansas State to log its first pointspread cover. It’ll be laying upwards of a possession at the open but that won’t last. Look for Texas Tech’s ability to force turnovers (No. 46) and hit the offensive glass (No. 72) to allow for it to get out of dodge with the dub and keep the win streak intact!




Marquette Golden Eagles vs. Creighton Bluejays


Date and Time: Tuesday, February 21, 2023 at 8:30 PM EST


Location: CHI Health Center Omaha, Omaha, NE


TV Coverage: FS1


A big one is set to do down in the “Land of Corn” on Super Tuesday when Big East leading Marquette invades Omaha looking to sweep the season rivalry from the Creighton Bluejays. Though both of these teams failed to come through for us the two times we backed them last week, I fully expect Doug McDermott’s kids to hold serve in the rematch and throw a wrench in the Golden Eagles plans of winning the Big East regular season title outright.


Marquette handed the Bluejays a 69-58 defeat as 3.5-point home favorites when these team first collided back in the middle of December. Though Creighton shot 46 percent from the field, it couldn’t hit the broad side of a barn from deep where it only converted four of 20 attempts. On top of that, it only shot five free throws to the Golden Eagles 14. It did however go on to outboard them 34-28 and did so without Ryan Kalkbrenner in the lineup. Creighton’s big man will be present for the rematch, and that will only add to the advantage the Bluejays will have on the glass. The home team will be laying 5-6 points on Hump Day night, and I’ll gladly lay ‘em knowing full well Creighton will own the battle of the boards and be able to do whatever it wants close to the rim where Marquette’s defense has been taken advantage of all season long (No. 209).
