That’s the risk you run with NCAAB picks and parlays. NCAAB parlays are two or more bets that run side by side and are combined into one big bet. A punter will only win the wager if every single one of their predictions is a winner. Punters, however, don’t have to stick to just one type of bet for a Parlay. They can combine a variety of different bet types including totals, Moneyline, against the spread and even props and futures in one NCAA tournament parlay.

Against the Spread: Also known as a Point Spread. A point spread is very popular for college basketball betting. This is a way to even up the playing field if there is a strong favourite or heavy underdog. This is represented by ‘the point’ which is a number given by the sportsbook.

Placing a bet on the underdog is referred to as ‘betting against the spread (ATS)
NCAA basketball picks against the spread could look as follows: Michigan Wolverines are playing Mississippi State Bulldogs and have been given a handicap of 4. This means that in order for you to win your wager on the Michigan Wolverines, the team would need to win by more than four points.
