The NCAA Tournament is coming to a conclusion, as we get set for Alabama vs UConn in the Final Four.

The Crimson Tide have gone on this deep run behind an elite offense, while the Huskies have completely steam-rolled the competition.

On this page, you’ll find my best bet, longshot, and same game parlay for Alabama vs UConn.

So without further ado, let’s dive into our March Madness parlays for this Final Four matchup.

March Madness UConn vs Alabama Parlays

Frank Ammirante 2024 March Madness Parlays Record: 5-7 (+1.43 units)

All CBB odds used for March Madness parlay bets are current as of 1 p.m. ET on Tuesday, April 2, and are courtesy of DraftKings Sportsbook.

UConn vs Alabama Top Parlay (+222)

WAGER: 1 Unit • DraftKings Sportsbook

  • UConn -6 (-295)
  • Alabama Over 74.5 Points (-110)

Alabama vs UConn Top Parlay

When building a parlay in the same game, it’s a good idea to find two picks with negative correlation to give you a higher potential payout.

The trick is to find two outcomes that can feasibly hit despite their contradictory nature.

I’ve got a good one for that with UConn -6 and Alabama Over 74.5 Points. If I were to take Alabama to go Under with this bet, I’d get (+104) odds instead of (+222).

The reason for the higher odds is because if UConn wins by more than six, there’s a chance it’s that they held Alabama’s offense in check. But 6+ points isn’t a blowout win at all, so I’ll go with the Crimson Tide to eclipse this number for the better payout.

I like UConn to win by more than six points because their tournament has been characterized by blowout victories:

  • W 77-52 vs Illinois
  • W 82-52 vs San Diego State
  • W 75-58 vs Northwestern
  • W 91-52 vs Stetson

I’ll add Alabama to go Over 74.5 points because they play at a fast-pace (T-9th) and have an elite offense (3rd per KenPom).

UConn vs Alabama Longshot Parlay (+1300)

WAGER: 0.1 Units • DraftKings Sportsbook

  • UConn -17 (+205)
  • Alabama Over 74.5 Points (-110)

Alabama vs UConn Longshot Parlay

Here we have a creative way to significantly boost the odds of our longshot parlay.

I’ll start with UConn to win by more than 17 points. This has been a common occurrence for the Huskies throughout the tournament, winning by 25, 30, 17, and 39 points so far.

I’m adding Alabama to surpass 74.5 points because if I take the Over here, I get (+1300) odds, compared to only (+228) on the Under.

The reason for this is simple: if Alabama loses by 18 or more, there’s a great chance that they won’t score more than 74 points.

However, I’d argue that this is within the range of outcomes due to Alabama’s fast-paced offense and vulnerable defense.

We’ve seen Alabama lose 105-87 to Florida and 117-95 to Kentucky this season, which would have hit this parlay. It’s not like these games were a while back, either — the Florida game was on March 15 and the Kentucky game was on February 24.

This parlay looks firmly within reach, so let’s take a shot at (+1300) odds.

UConn vs Alabama Same Game Parlay (+360)

WAGER: 0.5 Units • DraftKings Sportsbook

  • Alex Karaban Over 13.5 Points (-125)
  • Donovan Clingan Over 9.5 Rebounds (-130)
  • Tristen Newton Over 5.5 Assists (-150)

Alabama vs UConn Same Game Parlay

The Alabama vs UConn Same Game Parlay features three Huskies player props.

I’m targeting UConn players because of the favorable game environment, since Alabama’s fast-pace will result in more shot attempts.

Alex Karaban averaged 13.5 points per game this season, which is right at his 13.5 points prop for this one. This should be listed higher when you consider the pace-up nature of this game.

Donovan Clingan put up 7.5 rebounds per game, clearly below his 9.5 rebounds prop, but I still like it because Alabama gets off a lot of shot attempts, providing more opportunities for boards.

Tristan Newton posted 6.1 assists per game, comfortably above his 5.5 assists prop. Newton should cruise Over this one in a game with more possessions, resulting in more assist opportunities.
