Wisconsin vs. UNC: Sweet 16 Odds, Pick

The No. 1 Wisconsin Badgers look to pick up their ninth straight SU win when they meet the No. 4 North Carolina Tar Heels in a West Region Sweet Sixteen matchup. But while Wisconsin has been hard to beat on the scoreboard, they are just 1-8 ATS in their last nine as double-digit favorites.

The Badgers have now reached the Sweet Sixteen in four of the last five years, and are 6-1 SU in their last seven March Madness matchups, 4-2-1 ATS. The squad is winless SU in their two most recent meetings with the Tar Heels, dating back to UNC's 88-82 Elite Eight win in 2005, but covered as betting underdogs in each contest.

Kentucky battles WVU: Sweet 16 Matchup

The top-seeded Kentucky Wildcats will face the fifth-seeded West Virginia Mountaineers in the NCAA Tournament for the third time in six years when they square off Thursday in the second Sweet 16 matchup of the Midwest Region in Cleveland. The Wildcats were the No. 1 seed and led by John Wall, Patrick Patterson and DeMarcus Cousins when they were upset by the second-seeded Mountaineers 73-66 as 4-point favorites in the East Regional Final back in 2010. West Virginia went on to lose to the eventual NCAA champion Duke Blue Devils in the national semifinals.

This year, Kentucky has remained unbeaten at 36-0 by topping the 16th-seeded Hampton Pirates and the eighth-seeded Cincinnati Bearcats in the first two games but did not cover the spread against either opponent. The Wildcats are coming off a 64-51 victory against the Bearcats in the Round of 32 on Saturday and fell just short of covering as 15.5-point favorites after Cincy scored the last six points of the game. Kentucky is allowing an average of 53.5 points per game so far in the Big Dance.
