Sportsmemo. com, The Nation's Top Resource For March Madness Betting Advice, Provides An In-Depth Look At The Sweet Sixteen
Sportsmemo. com, the nation's leader in providing sports information from a betting perspective, identifies key elements for betting success in the Sweet Sixteen round of the NCAA Tournament.
Brentwood, TN (PRWEB) March 22, 2007
With the first two rounds of March Madness completed, the Sportsmemo. com handicappers identify key opportunities for value as the Sweet Sixteen of the NCAA Tournament starts.
With a first round that was mildly amusing and a second round that was crazy, what can be expected from the rest of the NCAA Tournament from a betting perspective?
"Expect the unexpected because as everyone knows anything can happen in March. The favorites were the clear play through the first two rounds as all four No. 1 seeds and all but two of the No. 2 and No. 3 seeds moved on, but this round will provide some interesting matchups and opportunities for upsets," commented Sportmemo's Senior Newsletter Editor, Andrew Lange.
Lange went on to say, "Looking forward to the Sweet Sixteen, location of the regional semifinals looks to play a role in at least two of this weekend's matchups. No. 3 Texas A&M, who opened as a generous 2.5-point favorite, and No. 2 Memphis will square off less than three hours from College Station in San Antonio. No. 2 UCLA, fresh off one of the ugliest games in tournament history (54-49 win over Indiana), travels north to the Bay Area to battle Aaron Gray and the Pitt Panthers.
"Ohio State and Tennessee will play for the second time this year after the Buckeyes held off a late Volunteer rally and picked up a two-point win in Columbus. Despite a poor offensive performance, Tennessee forced 20 OSU turnovers after throwing on its patented full court press. Ohio State got a scare - or what we like to call a gift - from Xavier in the second round.
"The most intriguing matchup looks to be Oregon versus UNLV. The Ducks struggled with the slow pace of Miami of Ohio in round one, but had an easier go of it in round two after forcing 'media darlings' Winthrop, to run. UNLV's upset win over Wisconsin wasn't a surprise if you happen to catch the Badgers in action against Texas A&M Corpus Christi. The Runnin' Rebels opened as a 1.5-point underdog against the Ducks, but the money poured in on the Oregon, shooting the line to -2.5 within a day."
