Villanova Wildcats Vs. Baylor Bears Odds

Villanova is being led by sophomore forward Jeremiah Robinson-Earl who is currently averaging 14.6 PPG on 48.6% from the field in the tournament.

Robinson-Earl is coming off of a strong 18-point performance against the North Texas Mean Green where the Wildcats dominated to an 84-61 victory with Robinson-Earl shooting 40% from deep. The +265 odds on Villanova to pull the upset is tempting enough for longshot betting fans, but those less confident may want to look at alternate spreads.

Taking Villanova at +1.0 would net betting fans +260, taking them at +2.5 would see +200, and at +5.5 would net a +130 return. If you are betting on Villanova but are not confident in them completely beating the Bears, alternate spreads could be a great way for players to cash in big.

Oregon State Beavers Vs. Loyola Chicago Rams Odds

  • Moneyline: Loyola Chicago -280, Oregon State +230
  • Spread: Loyola Chicago -6.5
  • Totals: Over/Under 125.5

The Loyola Chicago Rams have been on a consistent tear throughout the tournament and are coming off of the shocking 71-58 upset win against the Illinois Fighting Illini.

With the momentum from pulling the upset and the consistent play of senior center Cameron Krutwig, the smart money would be on the Rams to take the win against the Oregon State Beavers.

Betting fans should also look to take the Rams to cover the spread, as the team is 5-0 against the spread in their last five straight games. Since they were able to dominate against the Illinois defense in their last game, covering the -6.5 spread would be easy for the red-hot Rams.

Oral Roberts Golden Eagles Vs. Arkansas Razorbacks Odds

  • Moneyline: Arkansas -640, Oral Roberts +420
  • Spread: Arkansas -11.0
  • Totals: Over/Under 158.5

The Arkansas Razorbacks should win this game easily. They are 11 point favorites and are coming off of a 68-66 win against the Texas Tech Red Raiders which may have scared them straight.

Arkansas should come out stronger in the Sweet Sixteen, and the Oral Roberts Golden Eagles are not as strong as the Red Raiders were defensively.

What players should look to wagering on with this matchup is betting on the totals, specifically the first-half totals. Taking the under 73.0 at +115 for first-half totals could be a great way to cash in on this one-sided game. March Madness betting fans could see major wins on this betting line.

Arkansas has hit the under in their last four straight games and hit the under the last four NCAA Tournament games when they were the favorite. The Razorbacks’ defense is strong and should be able to hold the Golden Eagles to a low-scoring first half keeping the totals low overall.
