As the seconds left until tonight's matchup between Indiana (-4.5) and Minnesota dwindle down, we came up with one simple and solid Same Game Parlay for you sports betters to contemplate. This is an Indiana team looking to rebound from a rough showing at Rutgers, and they will have their hands full facing off against a gang of Gophers currently riding a 7-game-win streak. All that in mind, here is the framework of the Same Game Parlay we put together via DraftKings Sportsbook:
LEG 1 = Mike Mitchell Jr (MIN) OVER 11.5 Points
Mitchell is coming off of a rough night in Minnesota's last game against Maryland, finishing with a season low 2 points on 1-6 from the field (plus 0-2 from downtown). Prior to that game, he had scored at least 12 points in the 6 games leading up to the Gophers tussle with the Terrapins. Look for him to eclipse the OVER yet again as the 6'2" junior looks to get back on track.
LEG 2 = Dawson Garcia (MIN) OVER 7.5 Rebounds
With Indiana home to one of the biggest starting frontcourts in college basketball, Minnesota's best player Garcia should be on the floor for a majority of the game. With the Hoosiers having a reputation as a poor outside shooting team and looking to do the bulk of their damage down low, less long rebounds should translate to more rebounding opportunities for the 6'11", 230 pound big fella.
LEG 3 = Kel'el Ware (IND) OVER 8.5 Rebounds
Say what you want about Ware's streakiness offensively in recent memory, but he single-handedly controlled the boards for Mike Woodson's team last time out. After a career high 17-rebound performance in the lousy loss to the Scarlet Knights, Ware should be looking to sustain his reign on the glass in this one.
HONORABLE MENTION = Trey Galloway (IND) OVER 3.5 Assists
If you read our piece regarding our favorite player prop bets for the Rutgers game, then you will recall our notes on Galloway's improved playmaking ability recently. He hit the OVER (2.5) in that one, and has been on a dime dropping tear over the last month. We came extremely close to throwing an additional leg onto this parlay in honor of the senior's smooth table setting.
