Sunday College Hoops Parlay Legs

By Mike Rose

We came Rutgers not showing up in Iowa City away from sweeping the board on Championship Sunday making it three straight winning weeks for my Sunday college hoops parlay leg suggestions. Providence started the afternoon on the right foot gutting out a road win and cover at Villanova, and then Zach Edey once again had his way with Michigan State as expected to lead Purdue to the dominant home win and cover against Sparty. Unfortunately, we failed to bust out the broom in the late afternoon when the Scarlet Knights got rolled up and smoked by Iowa to drop the season series to the Hawkeyes. Here’s to getting in the black at PointsBet Sportsbook with three more investments you can confidently throw into parlay cards to close out the week!

Ohio State Buckeyes vs. Michigan Wolverines

Date and Time: Sunday, February 5, 2023 at 1 PM EST

Location: Crisler Center, Ann Arbor, MI

TV Coverage: CBS


Ohio State has failed to live up to expectations all season long. After dropping a 60-65 decision at home to Wisconsin as 7.5-point favorites last time out, Chris Holtmann’s Buckeyes are now 11-11 SU for the season and a wretched 3-8 in B1G play. The team is in the midst of a three-game losing streak both SU and against the college basketball odds, and I don’t foresee their fortunes changing in this trek to Ann Arbor where a revitalized Wolverines outfit will await coming off a dub at Northwestern. That win snapped a string of back-to-back losses against Purdue and Penn State which finds Juwan Howard’s just a few wins out of snagging the No. 2 seed in the Big Ten pecking order.


OSU enters this tilt just 1-5 SU and ATS on the B1G road with the lone win occurring all the way back on January 1 at Northwestern. Michigan fell 75-70 to Purdue as 5-point home dogs the last time it played in front of the hometown faithful to fall to 9-3 as hosts. I expect Hunter Dickinson and his mates to be laying no more than a possession in this lone showdown with the Buckeyes, and firmly expect the Maize and Blue to hold serve. It’s just not working in Columbus right now and I question as to whether the coaching staff has lost the team. With the talent at hand, Ohio State should be much better than a .500 club.




Points-Bet-Banner-Oct-04-2022-07-33-02-41-PMHouston Cougars vs. Temple Owls

Date and Time: Sunday, February 5, 2023 at 6 PM EST

Location: Liacouras Center, Philadelphia, PA

TV Coverage: ESPN2


You know Kelvin Sampson has had this game circled ever since the Owls went into the Fertitta Center and handed the Houston Cougars a shocking 56-55 defeat as near 20-point underdogs. The Cougars had a horrible day at the office in that one after managing to convert just 19 of 56 shots which included a 6 of 17 showing from beyond the arc. Making it all the more ugly was the fact that Temple converted a total of 14 field goals yet still managed to get out of dodge with the win. Not known for getting to the charity stripe much (No. 316), Temple did so a whopping 22 times and converted 20 of the freebies which didn’t come as a shock since shooting free throws is the only thing the offense has excelled at to date (No. 14).


Houston sports the No. 6 ranked defensive efficiency in the land per the current Pomeroy Ratings. While it has been known to send the opposition to the line a good amount (No. 217), I can’t help but think the Coogs make it a point to prevent that from occurring in the rematch. Should that prove to be the case, it’s certainly within the realm of possibility that Temple fails to exceed the 50-point plateau. Houston will be laying double-digits in the rematch, but I’ll have no issue laying the road chalk knowing full well Marcus Sasser and co. will be locked in at both ends of the court.




Stanford Cardinal vs. Colorado Buffaloes

Date and Time: Sunday, February 5, 2023 at 7 PM EST

Location: CU Events Center, Boulder, CO

TV Coverage: FS1


With Stanford rattling off five straight wins (4-1 ATS) and Colorado managing just two wins in its last seven tries, it won’t come off as making much sense once linemakers install the Buffaloes multiple-possession home chalk for this second and final meeting between the two clubs. I will however be laying the chalk and suggest you do as well with the Buffs the better of the two teams in my book. These teams squared off at the Maples Pavilion back on December 29 where KJ Simpson went off for a game-high 31 points to help lead CU to the 73-70 outright win as short 2-point road dogs.


Colorado shot a healthy 48 percent from the field in that contest which included a 6 of 16 showing from downtown. The only reason Stanford stuck close was because it went to the charity stripe a whopping 26 times and knocked down 22 of them. CU won the battle of the boards in hostile territory 30-28 which comes off as impressive considering how decent a rebounding team the Cardinal has proven to be (No. 32). Colorado sports the much better of the two defenses and should force quite a few more turnovers than it did in the first go-round with the rematch set to take place in altitude. Tristan Da Silva and his mates are much better than they’ve shown over the last month. This should be a get right spot for the home team!
