We’ve got a couple of intriguing matchups in the Final Four of March Madness, with UConn taking on Alabama and Purdue going up against N.C. State.

In this article, you’ll read about a best bet, longshot, and Same Game Parlay. These parlays may include different bet types, such as moneylines, Over/Unders, point spreads, and more.

With that in mind, let’s take a look at my favorite builds of March Madness parlays for the Final Four this weekend.

Best March Madness Final Four Parlay

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 2 p.m. ET on Monday, April 1, and are courtesy of DraftKings Sportsbook.

March Madness Final Four Top Parlay (-132)

WAGER: 1 unit • DraftKings Sportsbook

  • Purdue -3 (-320) vs N.C. State
  • UConn -6 (-290) vs Alabama

Final Four Top Parlay

The top parlay features alternate spreads on the two favorites in the Final Four.

I’ll start with Purdue -3, buying six points from the listed spread of -9.

The Boilermakers have won by at least six points in each of their four games throughout the tournament, including three by double digits.

This is a team that comes in at third overall in Pomeroy’s rankings (2nd offense, 16th defense).

While N.C. State has had an incredible Cinderella run, starting with an ACC Tournament win and getting to the Final Four, it feels like it ends here.

The Wolfpack are going to have a tough time containing Zach Edey on the interior.

I’ll finish it off with UConn -6, buying 5.5 points on -11.5.

The defending champions have had an unbelievable run this year, steamrolling the competition with double-digit wins in each of their five games, including two by 20+ points.

We just saw the Huskies completely dominate a good Illinois team, en route to a 77-52 victory.

At this point, it’s hard to see any team being able to stop this juggernaut. UConn in the national championship for the second straight season feels inevitable.

Let’s drink the juice with (-132) odds in our Final Four Top Parlay for March Madness.

March Madness Final Four Longshot Parlay (+236)

WAGER: 0.5 units • DraftKings Sportsbook

  • Purdue: Over 77.5 Points (-115) vs N.C. State
  • UConn: Over 86.5 Points (-125) vs Alabama

Final Four Longshot Parlay

The longshot parlay includes two Overs on team totals with the favored teams in the Final Four.

I’ll kick it off with Purdue to go Over 77.5 points. The Boilermakers have averaged 84 points per game throughout the tournament, topping out at 106 vs Utah State.

While Purdue was held to only 72 points in the Elite 8, that was against a tough Tennessee defense that ranked third on Pomeroy’s Rankings.

Look for the Boilermakers to have much more success against N.C. State (45th on defense).

I’ll conclude the longshot parlay with UConn to go Over 86.5 points. While this is a high bar, it’s a terrific matchup against Alabama, who ranks 9th in pace and 104th on defense.

The Crimson Tide’s uptempo style on offense can lead to more possessions and shot attempts, while their porous defense can result in easier buckets for UConn.

We’ve seen Alabama allow 81.5 points per game this tournament, but that’s skewed by their 72-61 win over Grand Canyon.

Their other three opponents scored 82, 87, and 96 points, so look for UConn (1st on offense) to have similar success.

Purdue vs N.C. State Same Game Parlay (+172)

WAGER: 0.5 units • DraftKings Sportsbook

  • Zach Edey: Over 25.5 Points (-130)
  • Zach Edey: Over 13.5 Rebounds (-125)

Final Four Same Game Parlay

I’m going to the Purdue vs N.C. State matchup in my Final Four Same Game Parlay.

We’re riding with center Zach Edey to continue his dominance, this time against the Wolfpack. Just take a look at Edey’s game log throughout the tournament:

  • 40 points, 16 rebounds vs Tennessee
  • 27 points, 14 rebounds vs Gonzaga
  • 23 points, 14 rebounds vs Utah State
  • 30 points, 21 rebounds vs Grambling State

Edey has gone Over this points line in three of four games, while hitting this rebounds prop in each of his four games.

With the way that Edey is playing right now, we simply have to ride the wave in our Final Four Same Game Parlay.
