Memphis Underdogs to 5 Seed Arizona

Arizona is one 5-seed that many bracketeers and madness bettors feel is safe, although the Memphis Tigers would like to say something about that.

Guard Derrick Williams can dominate this game and he probably will as the Wildcats look to advance and easily cover a 5.5-point spread. Memphis got here by winning the Conference USA title, but they won't stay long.

Memphis was 25-9 mark on the year, but an ugly 10-18-1 ATS. They also trended heavily toward the UNDER for totals bettors.
