Kansas vs Miami Parlays | CBB Same Game Parlay Best Bets

Posted: Mar 27, 2022Last updated: Mar 27, 2022

The Kansas Jayhawks and Miami Hurricanes head into the Elite 8 with both teams coming from different backgrounds. On paper, this is a true David and Goliath story, but Miami has proven themselves worthy of being in this position and will look to continue their Cinderella run.

Kansas has looked excellent at every turn this tournament, crushing Texas Southern by 27 points in the Round of 64, defeating Creighton by seven points in the Round of 32, and most recently earning a five-point victory over Providence.

Miami has had a relatively tough road to the Elite 8 and are now thoroughly battle-tested. They narrowly escaped defeat against USC in a two-point win, went on to surprisingly dismantle Auburn by 17 points, and most recently beat Iowa State by 14.

While the odds are certainly in the Jayhawks’ favor, a true Cinderella story should never be discounted in March Madness.

Please note that all March Madness odds are current as of Saturday, March 26, at 12 p.m. ET from DraftKings.

Kansas vs Miami Same-Game Parlay

Miami has done an admirable job of blowing out their opponents through the first three games of the NCAA Tournament. I do not expect them to beat a talented Kansas team to advance to the Final Four by any stretch, but I believe their shot to cover is excellent.

Kansas has played tight games throughout the tournament and is coming off a game against Providence in which it failed to cover a seven-point spread.

Look for this game to shoot way over the total as well. Both of these teams are among the most offensively-gifted in the nation, and we could see a genuine shootout from wire to wire.

Take the Hurricanes against the spread and Over 147.5 points in your CBB bet of the day.

Kansas vs Miami Longshot Parlay

With Miami looking to be the team of destiny in this tournament, there is some value in taking them on the moneyline in a longshot parlay. The Kansas Jayhawks are one of the best teams left in the bracket, but Miami has surprised, leading me to believe that they are capable of beating anyone as it stands.

The Hurricanes continue to push the issue and I fully expect them to give Kansas some serious trouble on both ends of the floor. At the moment, Kansas ranks fifth in the country in adjusted efficiency margin, while Miami ranks 35th.

Taking the Over in a game that figures to be a shootout is a good idea in this longshot parlay. The line has already moved some. While I do not typically recommend taking Overs on totals this high, the nature of March Madness is typically oriented toward offense and fast-paced styles of play.

In this game, Kansas should still be expected to score early and often. They have one of the five best offenses in the country this season and should give this Miami defense fits. Both teams should score 70 points in this game, but betting Kansas to do it is the play here for this longshot parlay.
