Just how tall of an order does Holy Cross have on their plate in Friday’s Round of 64 clash with Oregon? Never in the history of the tournament has a 16-seed beaten a 1-seed, but the Crusaders will be looking to change that with the eyes of the nation watching. Oregon has been sizzling against the spread as of late, going 5-1 ATS in their past six.

Shark Bites
  • Holy Cross is 4-0 SU and ATS in its last four games against teams with winning records.
  • Oregon is 5-0 SU in its last five games in March.
  • The total has gone UNDER in five of Oregon's last seven games.

Holy Cross is coming off a 59-55 First Four win over Southern, which was huge for the program. First-year head coach Bill Carmody hadn’t gotten his old school, Northwestern, into the tournament for 13 seasons (from 2000 to 2013).

Unfortunately for the Massachusetts-based school, the numbers are simply not in their favor. The matchup is perhaps the most lopsided of all No. 1 and No. 16 seeds in terms of the contrast between offensive and defensive efficiency.

Sportsbooks are expecting this tilt to be a blowout. Oregon opened as 23-point favorites for the affair, while the total was set at 133.5.
