Eight Great Betting Notes For Thursday's Sweet 16 Games

The headline speaks for itself here. One betting note for every team that plays on Thursday: 

Michigan – Hottest Bet 

The number: The Wolverines have won seven straight and are 6-1 ATS (against the spread) in those. Three of those wins came as underdogs and they haven’t seen a spread higher than 5 points – a great moneyline wager in addition to the spread.

What’s Wrong With Kentucky’s Offense?

Kentucky is one of the best offensive teams in the nation…on paper. UK averages the fifth-most points per game, is 16th in offensive efficiency and a respectable 34th in shooting percentage. However, the Wildcats have been in a major slump offensively.

UNC is Still the Team to Beat in the South

After two rounds, things have played out pretty much the way they were expected to in the South. All the top seeds have advanced to the Sweet 16 and North Carolina is still the overwhelming favorite to come out of the region — despite an ugly collapse in the second half of their Round of 32 game vs Arkansas.

Upset-Heavy East Region is Suddenly up for Grabs

How’s your March Madness bracket looking? Chances are your East Region is a disaster right now, and you’re not alone.

In an NCAA tournament that’s lacked the usual amount of upsets, the East has bucked that trend. Heavyweights like No. 1-seeded Villanova and No. 2 Duke went down in the Round of 32, as the Wisconsin Badgers shocked the basketball world by ousting the Wildcats 65-62 and the Dukies fell to the South Carolina Gamecocks 88-81.

Trends Favor Florida over upset-minded Wisconsin

The Florida Gators have an unlikely dance partner for the Sweet 16, as they take on the #8 seeded Wisconsin Badgers who are fresh off an improbable upset over the tournament’s top seed, Villanova. The Gators opened as a point and a half favorite which has been a favorable spot for them and their backers. As a favorite of three points or fewer, they’ve won and covered the spread in eight consecutive games.

Butler Has Plenty Of Bite As Underdog

Butler has just been quietly going about their business during March Madness and has largely gone unnoticed from the casual fan. This is exactly where Butler wants to be with the Bulldogs going 7-1 ATS in their past eight contests when being pegged as dogs. Butler has an uphill battle in front of them when they take off the UNC Tar Heels Friday.

Arizona Simply Doesn’t Get Upset As Big Favorite

According to most, Arizona is on a collision course with Gonzaga in the Elite Eight. If the past is any indication, then maybe folks are right to believe that. The Wildcats, who opened as 8-point favorites for their Sweet 16 matchup against Xavier, are 30-0 SU in their past 30 games when closing as a 7-point or higher fave.
