Miami vs Houston Best Same Game Parlay
Houston vs Miami Best SGP (+130) • DraftKings Sportsbook
WAGER: 1 Unit
- Miami: Under 70.5 Points (-290)
- Houston: Win By 5+ Points (-180)
- Houston: Over 69.5 Points (-210)
Houston is going to put the clamps on the Miami offense, and as it did against Auburn, the offense will follow suit on its way to a win.
The Win by 5+ points is teased down from the 7.5-point spread, which with free throws and the late-game shenanigans of the NCAA Tournament, could be impactful.
With the experience and talent of this Houston unit, they’ll be able to pull away late and cover this smaller spread number while scoring over 70 points.

Even if they start slow and are feeling out Miami early, they certainly could pull away in the second half to accomplish both as they did against Auburn — a better defensive unit than Miami.
Miami just hasn’t been tested by a defense like Houston’s this season, so it’s hard to trust them to be able to make plays and score with any real success throughout this game.
This parlay pays out a little more than 1:1, so it can be a great way to get better odds for your CBB bet if you think Houston is going to roll to a win.
Houston vs Miami Longshot Same Game Parlay
Houston vs Miami Longshot SGP (+275) • DraftKings Sportsbook
WAGER: 1 Unit
- Miami: First-Half +0.5 (+165)
- Under 66.5 First-Half Points (-220)
- Houston: First Half Under 32.5 Points (+110)
This is a potential parlay to bet if you think that Houston is going to start slow, which they have in both of their two opening-round games.
Miami, on the other hand, jumped out to a 13-3 lead against Indiana. They won’t be able to score at will against Houston like they did the Hoosiers, and the Cougars will slow the tempo down early.
Houston managed just 31 points in the first half against Auburn, before exploding in the second half for 50 points. This game will likely be played at a similar, if not even slower, tempo and should start slow as both teams adjust to the flow of the game.
This parlay pays out over 2.5:1, which makes it more of a longshot than others, but it makes a lot of sense. If Houston is going to start slow, Miami could be tied or even lead at the half.
