Gonzaga prevailed in the Sweet 16 with an epic win against UCLA, highlighted by a go-ahead three from Julian Strawther. The Zags bring the top offense in the country to the Elite 8.

UConn continues to cruise through the tournament, turning in their third consecutive double-digit win in an 88-65 rout over Arkansas. The Huskies are a complete team that looks like a major threat for the national championship.

We’ve got an intriguing matchup in the Elite 8, so let’s take a look at Gonzaga vs UConn Same Game Parlays.

Gonzaga vs UConn Best SGP (+105) • DraftKings Sportsbook

WAGER: 1 Unit

  • UConn +3.5 (-240)
  • Over 147.5 Total Points (-230)

We’ll start our Same Game Parlays with a watered down combination to act as insurance for our longshot build.

I like UConn to win this game as they’re the more balanced team, ranking third on offense and 13th on defense, per KenPom. The Huskies’ prolific offense can give them an edge here against a Gonzaga defense that ranks 73rd in the nation.

UConn has gotten terrific play on the interior from junior forward Adama Sanogo. Their guards have been strong as well, with Jordan Hawkins dropping 24 points against Arkansas and Andre Jackson tallying seven assists in each of their three tourney games.

UConn has scored a combined 114 points in the paint throughout the tournament. That’s good news against a Gonzaga team that likes to play at a fast pace.

We’re likely to see the Huskies forced into a more up-tempo play style, providing more opportunities for Sanogo in transition. That means that getting the total at a more favorable number of 147.5 points feels like a strong choice to complete this parlay.

Each of these teams have eclipsed 80 points in two of their three games in this tournament. We could see them fly Over this number.

Gonzaga vs UConn Longshot Same Game Parlay

Gonzaga vs UConn Longshot SGP (+380) • DraftKings Sportsbook

WAGER: 0.5 Units

  • UConn -9.5 (+230)
  • Gonzaga: Under 70.5 Points (+205)

We’ll target UConn on the point spread as well as Gonzaga’s team total in the alternate markets to get more value on our wagers.

The Huskies are well-equipped to turn this game into a double-digit victory. They have a major edge with their third-ranked offense against a Gonzaga’s defense (73rd).

We’ve seen UConn win by double-digits throughout this tournament. In fact, the Huskies have won by 10 or more in seven of their last 10 victories.

The Under 70.5 on Gonzaga’s team total fits well in this build because it’s a correlated play with UConn -9.5. The Huskies have held their opponents to 70 points or fewer in each game in this tournament.

If we look back further, we see that UConn has accomplished this feat in six of their last seven games. While it’s a daunting task to keep Gonzaga’s elite offense in check, the value is there at +205 odds.

Take a chance on a convincing UConn victory with this longshot parlay.
