March Madness Seeds: 8 vs 9

You would think the 8 vs 9 March Madness matchup would be the most even betting situation in the bracket and historically it has been.

But in the past few years, No. 8 seeds are riding an 10-4 ATS streak against the No. 9s. And here's another nugget as you study point spreads after the bracket is set - are any No. 8 seeds an underdog? If they are, history says they will win and cover and the 8s are 8-0 SU and ATS since 2010 in that situation.

This situation applies to Colorado (a 5-point dog vs Pitt) and Gonzaga (a small dog vs Oklahoma State) this week. The other 8 vs 9 matchups are Kentucky vs Kansas State and Memphis vs George Washington (see the odds list for all the games and current spreads).

Going back a few years, No. 8 Butler made it all the way to the national final, one of three times that has happened. The 1985 Villanova Wildcats team upset Georgetown to win it all, the lowest seed to ever win the national college basketball title.
