March Madness – The Road to the Final Four

The anticipation of the Men’s March Madness tournament is in full effect and it feels as if the Elite 8 round arrived in the blink of an eye. Number 1 seeds Gonzaga, Baylor, and Michigan have had a rather smooth ride to the Quarterfinals, while the remaining number one seed, Illinois, fell to the notorious bracket busters of 2018, the Loyola Ramblers.

Oral Roberts University also provided two entertaining upsets, one versus second ranked Ohio State and one against the Florida Gators. Thus far, the tournament has been nothing less than spectacular, and the same can be expected for the last two games of the Elite 8: Gonzaga (1) versus USC (6) and Michigan (1) versus UCLA (11).

Gonzaga (1) versus USC (6) Odds and Preview

BetMGM has the spread of this game as Gonzaga (-9) or USC (+9), so Gonzaga would have to win the game by at least 10 points to cover the spread for anyone that bet on the Bulldogs winning. Gonzaga have won their games by an average of 25.7 points per game while the Trojans have won their games with a respectable 21.3 points per game, including a 34 point blowout against the 3rd ranked Kansas Jayhawks.

According to Sports Illustrated,  3 of the top 10 college basketball players in the nation are Bulldogs, and everything points toward another Gonzaga win tonight. 

Michigan (1) versus UCLA (11) Odds and Preview

The spread for the final Elite 8 match of the tournament has Michigan as the favorite with a (-7.5) spread, so the Wolverines will have to win by 8 points to cover the spread. The UCLA Bruins have made a nice run in this tournament with a 10 point upset over the second ranked Alabama Crimson Tide.

UCLA is an underdog in this matchup, however, their performance versus one of the best 3pt shooting teams in the country leaves a glimmer of hope against the Wolverines. Michigan, being one of the more well-rounded teams in the tournament, has strung  together wins from efficient scoring and their star player, Hunter Dickinson. Look for Dickinson to lead the way for the Wolverines to a berth in the Final Four.
