March Madness Betting Trends: Saturday

Two of the fiercest underdogs in recent memory are in action Saturday for March Madness betting.

The Blazers face No. 11 UCLA riding a nine-game ATS win streak when getting points. They have also won six of their past seven games outright when sportsbooks disrespect them by giving them points.
