UConn has been one of the most impressive teams in the tournament so far, highlighted by a 15-point win over Saint Mary’s in the Round of 32.

The Huskies will take on Arkansas, who just finished upsetting the defending champion Kansas Jayhawks. The Razorbacks are led by a tough defense, which ranks 15th in the nation, per KenPom.

With that in mind, let’s dive into UConn vs Arkansas Same Game Parlays for the Sweet 16.

UConn Same-Game Parlay Sweet 16

UConn is the better team here, ranking fourth overall on KenPom, compared to 19th for Arkansas. The Huskies are a balanced squad, boasting the third-ranked offense while coming in 14th on defense.

We’ll take them on the moneyline to play it safe.

This team is led by Adama Sanogo, who has been one of the best players in the tournament. The junior forward has tallied 24 and 28 points in UConn’s two wins.

It’s going to be difficult for Arkansas to slow down Sanogo in this one.

UConn also has the edge from beyond the arc, averaging 9.1 three-pointers this season, compared to Arkansas’ five per game. If the Huskies can get hot from long-range, we could see the Razorbacks struggle to keep pace here.

We’ll finish off this parlay by taking UConn to go Over 69.5 points on the alternate team total. The Huskies have eclipsed this number in seven of their last eight games.

I expect that to continue against Arkansas, even though it has a strong defense.

UConn vs Arkansas Longshot Same Game Parlay

WAGER: 0.5 Units

  • UConn -3.5 (-125)
  • Arkansas: Under 63.5 Points (+170)

Uconn parlay pick

We’ll get creative to build our longshot parlay here, pairing UConn -3.5 with Arkansas Under 63.5 points on its alternate team total. The Huskies have covered this number in 11 of their last 13 games.

It was impressive to see Arkansas knock off Kansas, but UConn will be tougher.

That’s because the Huskies are the more balanced team. In fact, they came into the tournament ranking higher on KenPom compared to Kansas, even though they were the lower seed.

UConn is absolutely good enough to win the tournament, and I don’t see it losing to Arkansas here.

The Razorbacks may find it difficult to score points against this tough defense that ranks 14th in Adjusted Defensive Efficiency. We’ve seen it go Under this number against similarly stout defenses like Tennessee (first), so while it’s a longshot, it’s not out of the realm of possibilities.

These two plays are correlated because if Arkansas is unable to score 64 or more points, there’s a great chance that it has lost the game by four or more.
