The Peacocks are moving on! What an unbelievable story and arguably the greatest Cinderella story we have ever seen. They’ve already knocked off powerhouses Kentucky and Purdue, leaving them with another one of college basketball’s most elite programs in their sights.
However, this run by the Peacocks has overshadowed the tremendous tournament that North Carolina is having. They entered the tourney as an 8 seed (which I always felt like was too low) and have sent last year’s winner and a Final Four finisher packing in the Baylor Bears & UCLA Bruins.
UNC is one win away from the Final Four and a potential matchup against Coach K one last time.
Let’s put together our same-game parlays for this Elite 8 matchup.

UNC vs Saint Peter’s Same-Game Parlay
Parlay Odds (+310) at BetMGM
- UNC Moneyline
- Saint Peter’s 1st Half +6.5
- Total Points Under 141.5
Wager: 1 Unit
We took the Saint Peter’s first-half spread against Purdue, which easily hit. The Peacocks are now 3-0 in covering the first-half spread in the NCAA Tournament.
Taking the Purdue moneyline ruined our parlay in the last game, so if you like Saint Peter’s to win here, you can take that leg out of the parlay.

If the Peacocks are going to continue their run, they will have to slow the pace of the game down and play a strong half-court game. That has been the game plan so far, which makes me lean to the Under.
Look for Saint Peter’s to keep this game competitive in the first half make this your CBB bet of the day.
UNC vs Saint Peter’s Longshot Same-Game Parlay
Parlay Odds (+700) at BetMGM
- St. Peter’s Win (Each Half)
- St. Peter’s Team Total Over 62.5
Wager: 1 Unit
This is the perfect longshot parlay for this game. I already like the Saint Peter’s first-half spread, and if you think the Peacocks can pull off another upset, picking them to win each half is a great bet with great value.

Offensively, the Peacocks will have to shoot the ball well and score over 60 points to win this game. So if you’re already adding them to win each half, it’s logical to add their team total Over 62.5 to the parlay as well.
They have scored more than this total in all three of their games so far in the NCAA Tournament, and if they win, they will accomplish that feat again.
