    ‘Midwest Region Sweet 16’ betting preview

    No. 4 Iowa St. Cyclones vs. No. 1 Virginia Cavaliers (-5, 141)

    Game to be played at United Center, Chicago, IL.

    It will be a contrast in styles when No. 1 seed Virginia puts its shutdown defense up against No. 4 seed Iowa State’s high-powered attack in an NCAA Tournament Sweet 16 matchup in Chicago on Friday. The Cavaliers, who are seeking their first visit to the Elite Eight since 1995, own the second-ranked scoring defense (59.5) in the country, while the Cyclones have the third-best offensive output (82.1) among remaining tournament teams.

    They are hoping to reach a regional final for the first time in 16 years and after averaging 86 points in first- and second-round wins – are poised to impose their style of play on the top team in the Midwest Region. “It’s obviously going to be a toughness battle,” Iowa State forward Georges Niang, who has scored 28 points in both tournament games, told reporters. “Who’s going to be tougher? Who’s going to really will their team to a win? That’s what it comes down to.” The Cavaliers had some issues imposing their will against Butler in the second round before a solid stretch run lifted them to a 77-69 victory. Anthony Gill remained a rock for Virginia as the senior forward posted his second straight 19-point effort and hauled in a game-high eight rebounds.

    TV: 7:10 p.m. ET, CBS

    Top seed Virginia opened as 5.5-point favorites over Iowa St. but the line was quickly adjusted down to -5. The total began the week at 141 and hasn’t moved. Check out the complete line history here.

    ABOUT IOWA STATE (23-11, 17-13-1 ATS, 14-16-1 O/U):
    Guard Matt Thomas has taken a liking to tournament play, averaging 15 points while making 7-of-15 3-pointers through the first two rounds. The junior, who has one turnover in 77 minutes in those two games, is 12-of-24 from beyond the arc in six career contests in the Big Dance. Niang is winding up a stellar career with a flourish, producing double digits in made field goals in a career-high three consecutive games.

    ABOUT THE VIRGINIA (28-7, 18-14-1 ATS, 13-20 O/U):
    The second-round win allowed ACC Player of the Year Malcolm Brogdon (22 points) to put forth perhaps the best of his seven career tournament games, and the only one in which he has shot better than 50 percent from the field (8-of-14). The Cavaliers have also been getting great production off the bench from big man Mike Tobey, who has made 9-of-11 shots, grabbed eight rebounds and blocked three shots in 24 total minutes of tournament play. Guard Marial Shayok added 12 points versus Butler and has three double-digit efforts in his last four games after producing a total of four in his previous 29 affairs.


    * Cyclones are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games vs. a team with a winning straight up record.
    * Cavaliers are 6-1-1 ATS in their last 8 games overall.
    * Over is 5-1 in Cyclones last 6 vs. Atlantic Coast.
    * Under is 12-3 in Cavaliers last 15 overall.


    1. The winner plays No. 10 seed Syracuse or No. 11 seed Gonzaga in the Elite Eight.

    2. Cyclones senior F Abdel Nader, who grew up outside Chicago, is averaging 15.4 points over his last nine games while shooting 45.5 percent from 3-point range.

    3. Iowa State owns a 2-1 series advantage and won the previous meeting 60-47 on Dec. 30, 2010 at Virginia.

    PREDICTION: Virginia 73, Iowa State 71

    Championship Odds
    Virginia – 5/1
    Iowa St. – 25/1
    Gonzaga – 25/1
    Syracuse – 60/1


    ‘East Region Sweet 16’ betting preview

    No. 7 Wisconsin Badgers vs. No. 6 Notre Dame Fighting Irish (-1, 131.5)

    Game to be played at Wells Fargo Center, Philadelphia, PA.

    Considering their NCAA Tournament fortunes appeared bleak at best following poor efforts in their respective conference tournaments two weeks ago, it might be appropriate to suggest fate has shined favorably on Notre Dame and Wisconsin recently. A pair of schools coming off dramatic last-second wins last weekend will vie for the right to advance to the Elite Eight on Friday when the Fighting Irish and Badgers square off in a Sweet 16 matchup in Philadelphia.

    Notre Dame opened the ACC tournament by rallying from a 16-point second-half deficit to defeat Duke in overtime, only to get pounded 78-47 by North Carolina in the semifinals. The sixth-seeded Fighting Irish haven’t lost their flair for the dramatic at the Big Dance, however, digging out of a 12-point hole to beat Michigan before getting a tip-in from freshman Rex Pflueger with 1.5 seconds left to hold off a second-round upset bid from Stephen F. Austin. Wisconsin turned in a listless offensive effort in a 12-point loss to Nebraska in the second round of the Big Ten tournament, then survived the lowest-scoring effort by a winning team in the NCAA Tournament since 2003 in a 47-43 first-round victory over Pittsburgh. Bronson Koenig kept the seventh-seeded Badgers’ dream of making three straight Final Fours alive in their next time out, hitting two 3-pointers in the final 11.7 seconds – including the game-winner as time expired – to send No. 2 seed Xavier home with a 66-63 loss.

    TV: 7:27 p.m. ET, TBS

    The higher seeded Notre Dame Fighting Irish opened as one-point favorite and the spread hasn’t moved an inch all week. The total opened at 129.5 and has been bet up a full two points to 131.5.

    “Of Friday’s four Sweet 16 games, the Notre Dame/Wisconsin matchup is projected to be the closest. The other three all have a clear favorite (UNC, UVA, Gonzaga) but the Irish/Badgers line, currently Notre Dame -1 at most shops, suggests a game which could go either way. Check out the complete line history here.

    With victories against Pittsburgh, a team which defeated ND in the reg. season, and Xavier, the Badgers have arguably been more impressive than Notre Dame. The Irish recorded comeback victories against Michigan, a team Wisconsin defeated in the regular season, and also against #15th seeded SF Austin. Indeed, they’re fortunate to even be here. That may have some scratching their heads a little about why the Irish are the slight favorites.” – Ben Burns.

    ABOUT WISCONSIN (22-12, 18-16 ATS, 14-20 O/U):
    Defense, specifically keeping the opponent’s leading scorer in check, has been key for the Badgers through two NCAA Tournament games; Wisconsin held Pittsburgh’s Michael Young nearly 10 points below his 15.7 average and Xavier’s Trevon Bluiett to eight points below his usual 15.1-point standard. Koenig (13.3 points) ended a three-game slide in which he totaled 21 points on 7-of-32 from the field by scoring 20 on 6-of-15 shooting – including 6-of-12 beyond the arc – versus the Musketeers. The same cannot be said for leading scorer Nigel Hayes (16.3 points), who has missed all 17 of his 3-point attempts and is a combined 7-of-42 from the floor over his last three outings.

    ABOUT NOTRE DAME (23-11, 15-16-1 ATS, 16-16 O/U):
    Zach Auguste (14.3 points, 10.9 boards) became the 13th Fighting Irish to reach 800 career rebounds Sunday and has posted 10 double-doubles over his last 14 outings, averaging 15.3 points and 12.1 boards over that span. The 6-10 senior forward is shooting 70.5 percent from the field in seven career NCAA Tournament games and has a chance to break Bill Walton’s tournament record (68.6) if is able to maintain his current percentage on nine or more attempts. V.J. Beachem (11.6 points) is coming off his worst shooting effort (6-for-13) since Notre Dame’s postseason run began, but he is still averaging 15.8 points on 21-of-39 from the field – including 13-of-25 from long-range – over that four-game stretch.


    * Badgers are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 NCAA Tournament games.
    * Fighting Irish are 8-2 ATS in their last 10 vs. Big Ten.
    * Under is 10-1 in Badgers last 11 overall.
    * Under is 8-1 in Fighting Irish last 9 games following a ATS loss.


    1. The winner will meet either No. 1 seed North Carolina or No. 5 seed Indiana in the Elite Eight in Philadelphia on Sunday.

    2. Notre Dame has committed 16 more turnovers than it has forced during the NCAA Tournament (29-13).

    3. Since beginning the season with a 2-7 record in games decided by six points or fewer during their 9-9 start, the Badgers are 5-0 in such contests (including 2-0 in the Big Dance) since.

    PREDICTION: Notre Dame 62, Wisconsin 58

    Championship Odds
    North Carolina – 3/1
    Indiana – 25/1
    Notre Dame – 60/1
    Wisconsin – 80/1


    ‘Midwest Region Sweet 16’ betting preview

    No. 11 Gonzaga Bulldogs vs. No. 10 Syracuse Orange (+4, 135)

    Game to be played at United Center, Chicago, IL.

    Syracuse and Gonzaga are two of the most surprising teams in the Sweet 16, but they also have been two of the most impressive teams through the first two rounds of the NCAA Tournament. The 10th-seeded Orange and the 11th-seeded Bulldogs eye another strong effort – and a spot in the Elite 8 – when they clash in Friday’s nightcap in Chicago.

    The earlier contest in the Windy City pits top-seeded Virginia against No. 4 seed Iowa State, but the region’s two Cinderella squads have generated as much (if not more) buzz for their dominant play in the tournament’s opening weekend. Syracuse rolled past Dayton by 19 points and Middle Tennessee by 25, while Gonzaga topped Seton Hall by 16 before knocking off Utah in a 23-point affair. Each team is led by a sweet-shooting senior, as Michael Gbinije paces the Orange in scoring (17.8) and 3-pointers (90), while Kyle Wiltjer does the same for the Bulldogs (20.4, 86). In the front court, Domantas Sabonis has been a force for Gonzaga, although Syracuse’s Tyler Roberson and Tyler Lydon also have enjoyed terrific tournaments to this point.

    TV: 9:40 p.m. ET, CBS

    The books opened this game with Gonzaga as 4.5-point favorites over Syracuse but the public bet the line down to Gonzaga -4. The total opened at 135.5 and dropped slightly to 135. Check out the complete line history here.

    ABOUT GONZAGA (28-7, 17-15-1 ATS, 17-16 O/U):
    Sabonis (19 points, 10 rebounds), Wiltjer (17 points) and Eric McClellan (22 points) all shot at least 66 percent in the win over Utah while combining to go 6-of-7 from 3-point range. Those three average double-digit points, as does freshman Josh Perkins (10.2), who is 1-of-8 from beyond the arc in the NCAAs but likely will be needed to knock down shots over the Syracuse 2-3 zone. With seven straight wins, however, Bulldogs coach Mark Few does not want the recent success to go to his players’ heads, saying this week: “We don’t want them patted on the back. I like them playing with an edge and desperation and maybe not feeling that good about themselves.”

    ABOUT SYRACUSE (21-13, 18-15 ATS, 17-16 O/U):
    After shooting a season-high 55.1 percent against Middle Tennessee, Jim Boeheim knows that his team is playing some of its best basketball at the right time of the season. “I think we just have to make sure we understand that there’s a lot to be done, a lot can be done, a lot of good things can happen and we have to focus on that, the next game and not really look backward,” Boeheim told reporters. “There will be time to look backward, some day.” In the meantime, the veteran coach needs continued solid production from Gbinije (23 points on 10-of-14 shooting last game), Roberson (averaging 11 points and 13.5 rebounds in the tournament) and Lydon (14 points and seven rebounds in both games so far).


    * Bulldogs are 7-0 ATS in their last 7 games overall.
    * Orange are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games vs. a team with a winning % above .600.
    * Under is 5-0 in Bulldogs last 5 vs. Atlantic Coast.
    * Under is 6-1 in Orange last 7 NCAA Tournament games.


    1. Only five players in the country – none of which are still alive in the NCAA Tournament – have more double-doubles than Sabonis (22).

    2. Gonzaga is allowing 55.5 points – fourth best in the NCAA Tournament – while Syracuse is even better at 50.5 (second).

    3. The Orange likely will need a better shooting effort from starting Gs Trevor Cooney and Malachi Richardson, who went a combined 5-of-17 from the field against Middle Tennessee.

    PREDICTION: Gonzaga 66, Syracuse 63


    ‘East Region Sweet 16’ betting preview

    No. 5 Indiana Hoosiers vs. No. 1 North Carolina Tar Heels (+4, 135)

    Game to be played at Wells Fargo Center, Philadelphia, PA.

    Two of the most successful programs in college basketball history meet when top-seeded North Carolina takes on No. 5 seed Indiana in the East Regional semifinals of the NCAA Tournament on Friday in Philadelphia. The Tar Heels, who have won seven straight contests, are tied with Indiana and Duke for third at five national titles and each boasts the tools to make it six.

    North Carolina has rolled to double-digit victories over FGCU and Providence in the first two rounds after winning the ACC regular-season and tournament titles with versatile senior forward Brice Johnson leading a deep, balanced lineup. “I probably think we’ve played our best basketball the entire season in the last couple of weeks,” Tar Heels coach Roy Williams told reporters. Indiana, which won the Big Ten regular-season title and knocked off Kentucky in the regional quarterfinals Saturday, got better as the season went along with senior point guard Yogi Ferrell as the catalyst. The Hoosiers have leaned on their offense all season (82.5 points), but coach Tom Crean told reporters he knows North Carolina will be difficult to outscore because “they keep bringing a wave of guys at you.”

    TV: 9:57 p.m. ET, TBS

    The books opened the no. 1 North Carolina Tar Heels at -6.5 and the public jumped all over Indiana at that value. The books dropped the line to -5.5 by Monday morning and that’s where it’s been ever since. The total opened at 160 and was dropped to 158.5 on Wednesday afternoon. Check out the complete line history here.

    ABOUT INDIANA (27-7, 19-15 ATS, 16-18 O/U):
    Ferrell recorded 38 points, 14 assists and three turnovers over the last two games while playing an average of 36 minutes. Ferrell, who has 1,961 career points, will need continued production inside from center Thomas Bryant (19 points versus Kentucky, 68.9 percent shooting overall) and forward Troy Williams (13 points, team-high 5.9 rebounds this season). The Hoosiers’ depth is a bit in question with the status of guard Robert Johnson (ankle) and forward Juwan Morgan (shoulder) uncertain.

    ABOUT NORTH CAROLINA (30-6, 17-18-1 ATS, 18-18 O/U):
    Johnson, who is four rebounds shy of becoming the eighth Tar Heel to reach 1,000 in his career, averages a double-double (16.8 points, 10.5 boards) while shooting 61.9 percent from the field. Johnson is a constant while the rest of a deep lineup has taken turns stepping up and senior point guard Marcus Paige (12.0 points) is a key for the Tar Heels after draining 5-of-12 from beyond the arc in the first two rounds. Guard Joel Berry II (12.8) and forward Justin Jackson (12.1) also average in double figures.


    * Hoosiers are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 non-conference games.
    * Tar Heels are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 neutral site games.
    * Hoosiers are 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings.
    * Over is 6-1 in Tar Heels last 7 non-conference games.


    1. The Tar Heels have limited 27 straight opponents to less than 45 percent shooting from the field while the Hoosiers are converting at 50.5 for the season.

    2. Indiana, which is 66-33 in 99 NCAA Tournament contests, is 4-0 overall all-time in Philadelphia – including a 63-50 triumph against North Carolina in the 1981 national title game.

    3. Williams is 33-9 at North Carolina in the NCAA Tournament and can pass Lute Olson (780) for 10th all time in Division I victories.

    PREDICTION: North Carolina 80, Indiana 72

    ATS picks for every game

    Note: Picks marked with an asterisk (*) are best bets.
    All times are ET.

    No. 1 Virginia Cavaliers (-5.5) vs. No. 3 Iowa State Cyclones 7:10 p.m.
    Current total: 142
    Pick Center consensus pick:
    51 percent pick Iowa State to cover BPI:

    Virginia has 67.3 percent chance of winning Tuley: In the NCAA Vegas Ranks over at Chalk, Virginia is rated just 3.5 points higher than Iowa State, so with the Cyclones catching 5.5, there’s a little bit of value on the underdog. Now, in full disclosure, I should point out that I have Iowa State rated higher than other handicappers, so that’s the main reason the NCAA Vegas Ranks show a preference for the Cyclones. I also have a bias because I have multiple future-book tickets on Iowa State to cut down the nets. But all that being said, I really do believe Iowa State is a live underdog on Friday and worth a play (note: if I wasn’t so confident, I would be tempted to hedge my future bets, but I’m not doing that). The Cyclones have looked sharp so far in the tournament and I was also encouraged by what Butler was able to do against Virginia’s highly-regarded defense. Iowa State’s Georges Niang (who passed on entering the NBA draft last spring just for this reason) can score on anyone, and his supporting cast can pick up the slack if his shots aren’t falling.

    Pick: Iowa State +5.5*

    No. 7 Wisconsin Badgers vs. No. 6 Notre Dame Fighting Irish (-1) 7:25 p.m.
    Current total: 131.5
    Pick Center consensus pick:
    56 percent pick Wisconsin to cover BPI:

    Notre Dame has 56.1 percent chance of winning Lange: These are two squads that are fortunate to still be dancing, as Wisconsin hit two late 3s to get past Xavier and Notre Dame got a last second tip-in against Stephen F. Austin. Friday’s matchup is correctly priced as close to a pick-em with both teams very similar in style. Notre Dame boasted the top offensive efficiency in the ACC (1.14 points per possession) but counters with the worst defensive efficiency rating (1.03 PPP allowed) of any team remaining in the tournament. Wisconsin doesn’t have nearly as much firepower, having failed to top a point per possession in both tournament wins. The Badgers, however, make up for it with the ability to get stops. In the last 10 minutes of wins over Pittsburgh and Xavier, the Badgers allowed a combined 23 points. For bettors wishing to get involved, supporting the better defensive team in a short-lined game isn’t a bad route to go. In the end, I’m really not sold on either team and will likely sit this one out unless we see significant movement in the markets leading up to game day.

    Pick: Pass

    No. 10 Syracuse Orange vs. No. 11 Gonzaga Bulldogs (-4.5) 9:10 p.m.
    Current total: 134.5
    Pick Center consensus pick:
    51 percent pick Gonzaga to cover BPI:

    Gonzaga has 60.8 percent chance of winning Tuley: I’m high on both teams, but this is another case where I believe the point spread is a little overinflated and makes it worthy of a play. The NCAA Vegas Rankings agree that Gonzaga should be the favorite, but by just 2.5 points. Syracuse has made the most of its inclusion in the field — which many people criticized as the Orange were given the nod over several quality bubble teams — and coach Jim Boeheim has really played up that underdog role, though it’s ironic that Syracuse has gone off as favorites in both of their wins. Michael Gbinije is the offensive leader on a team that spreads the floor and lights it up from 3-point range. Gonzaga has also been impressive after barely making the field by winning the West Coast Conference title over Saint Mary’s and is led by forwards Kyle Wiltjer and Domantas Sabonis. However, Syracuse has frontline players to counter them, including sixth man Tyler Lydon, and defends the perimeter well with Boeheim’s famed 2-3 zone.

    Pick: Syracuse +4.5*

    No. 5 Indiana Hoosiers vs. No. 1 North Carolina Tar Heels (-5.5) 9:55 p.m.
    Current total: 160
    Pick Center consensus pick:
    53 percent pick Indiana to cover BPI:

    UNC has 63.3 percent chance of winning Lange: Heading into its game against Kentucky, Indiana had said that it was looking forward to an uptempo, high-scoring game. After a few quick shots — a lot of which missed — both teams settled into what was instead a half court, defensive battle. As said in that game’s analysis, the Hoosiers are where they are because of an underrated defensive unit. Perhaps that unit deserves to be “upgraded” after holding the red-hot Wildcats to less than a point per possession. North Carolina has also tightened the screws on the defensive end of late. Over their last seven games, including four against teams still remaining in the tournament, the Tar Heels allowed over a point per possession just once. Of the remaining 16 teams, nine reside in the Big Ten and ACC, which speaks to the strength of both conferences. The perception is both teams are offensive juggernauts that produce NBA-type scores, but both Indiana and North Carolina finished a very respectable third in defensive efficiency in conference play. And over its last 20 games, North Carolina has played in only one contest that topped 160 points. Indiana is at a slightly higher ratio with two of its last 21 (in regulation) surpassing 160. I lean towards the under here.

    Pick: Under 160*


    NCAA tournament

    Since 1997, North Carolina is 9-1 in Sweet 16; they lost to Wisconsin in this round LY. Tar Heels are 2-0 vs Big 14 this year, beating N’western by 11, Maryland by 8. UNC scored 84 ppg LW in easy wins; they’ve won seven in a row overall. Indiana won 22 of last 26 games; they’re 1-2 vs ACC teams, losing to Wake/Duke in fall, then beat Notre Dame by 7 in December. Hoosiers shoot 41.6% on the arc (#5); Carolina foes are shooting 35.4% (#223 defense). ACC teams are 8-11 vs Big 14 teams this season, 5-6 vs spread when favored. Last 10+ years, #1 seeds are 18-19 vs spread in regional semifinal round. Battle of senior point guards should be extremely interesting.

    Wisconsin allowed 53 ppg in winning twice LW; Badgers won at Syracuse, beat Pitt by 4 in only two ACC games. Notre Dame won four of last five games, sneaking by SF Austin Sunday. Irish subs play 9th-least minutes in country; PG Jackson was on bench for 2:00 LW. ND is 3-1 vs Big 14 this year, losing to Indiana, winning by 7-6-5 points vs Michigan-Illinois-Iowa. Expect a slow tempo; Notre Dame plays tempo #321, Wisconsin #345. Badgers are 13-3 in last 16 games after a 9-9 start; they don’t have a senior in rotation. ACC teams are 8-11 vs Big 14 teams this season, 3-3 vs spread when a dog. This is first regional semi with 6-7 seeds playing since 2005.

    Virginia won seven of last eight games, with only loss to UNC; Cavs beat West Va in only Big X game. UVa plays slowest tempo in nation. Iowa State plays #56 tempo, is #4 expereince team, but Cyclones’ bench plays 5th-least minutes in country. Last 10 years, #1 seeds are 18-19 vs spread in regional semifinal round. ACC teams are 2-3 vs Big X teams this year, 1-3 vs spread when favored. Iowa State scored 172 points on 141 possessions LW; this game will be mich slower than 70 possessions. Cyclones beat Va Tech by 22 in only ACC game- they’ve got #5 eFG% in country, shooting 56.6% inside arc (#4), 38.6% outside arc (#22). .

    Gonzaga is 7-0 since losing on Senior Night to St Mary’s; they’ve got two quality big men, shoot ball well (#12 eFG%) and allowed only 55.5 ppg LW in beating seeds #6-3 in their region (Seton Hall/Utah). Zags are 4-5 vs top 50 teams this year. Syracuse got two wins last week after going 1-5 in previous six games; Orange avoided Michigan St in second round, which always helps. Syracuse is one of 20 worst teams in country on defensive boards, but otherwise defend well- their bench plays 2nd-least minutes in country. WCC won both its games vs ACC teams this season. This game is only third 10-11 seed game ever; dogs won first two.

    Gonzaga vs. Syracuse (NCAAB) – Mar 25, 2016 9:40 PM EDT
    Play: Money Line: 170 Syracuse
    Play Title: 10* CBB PLUS MONEY DOG

    This game features the 28-7 Gonzaga versus the 21-13 Syracuse. Syracuse barely got into the big dance and I believe it was based on how hard their schedule is the same can not be said for Gonzaga. Syracuse is coached by a legend and this could be his last March Madness. Gonzaga has not seen this kind of zone defense and I expect them to struggle big time. I think the players for Syracuse win this game for him and send him to the Elite 8. Take Syracuse straight for a nice 10* PLUS MONEY payout.
