How Sharps Are Betting the Sweet 16
Richie Baccellieri: How Sharps Are Betting the Sweet 16
I hope you're all rested and recuperated from having a few days off during the NCAA Tournament. Now it's time to get back into action for the Sweet 16. I'll cover all eight matchups for Thursday and Friday on this report. I'll be back over the weekend to look at how sharps are betting the Elite Eight pairings
Using the same format as last week...I'll go in Nevada rotation order for the host cities, but then tipoff order at each site so it's easier for you to follow along as the games are being played.
THURSDAY IN KANSAS CITY
(3) OREGON vs. (7) MICHIGAN: 7:05 p.m. ET on CBS
This one opened at pick-em even with the difference in seedings. Michigan has been playing a lot better than your typical #7 seed. Oregon suffered an injury in the Pac 12 tournament that hurt them in the eyes of the market. Both sharps (professional wagerers) and squares (the public) liked Michigan at pick-em. We're now seeing -1 at most places, with -1.5's up in the board at a few spots. I think Oregon money would definitely come in at +2, and might at +1.5 in the hours before tipoff if it becomes more widely available.
