March Madness Elite 8 and NBA Picks for March 29, 2021 | Odds Shark’s Guys & Bets (Episode 327)

College basketball is coming to an end as we’re down to the Elite Eight in March Madness and Iain has picks for all four games!

The Midwest Region in March Madness has taken fans on a wild ride. Either No. 12 Oregon State or No. 2 Houston will advance to the Final Four. Oregon State has been on quite a run lately. The Beavers had to win the Pac-12 Tournament just to qualify for the Madness but here they are with wins in nine of their last 10 games. They find themselves as fairly big underdogs and Iain is looking at the line for his bet here.

The other Elite Eight matchup tonight is the Baylor Bears against the Arkansas Razorbacks. The Bears have won all their games in the tournament by double digits as their balanced offensive attack has been too much to handle. Arkansas has fought tooth and nail to get to this point, squeaking by in their last two games by a combined four points. Iain is liking a bet on the total in the South Region final.

The top team in the nation, the Gonzaga Bulldogs, will play USC for a chance to advance to the Final Four. The star power of Gonzaga is going to be a handful for anyone to contend with but USC just might have the right mix of athletes to do so. Gonzaga has walked through the tournament up to this point and will have to bring its A game to get past the upbeat Trojans. Iain is looking at the spread for his wager Tuesday night.

On Tuesday, the East Region final will be going down as the top-seeded Michigan Wolverines face No. 11 UCLA. Juwan Howard has been pushing all the right buttons with this Michigan squad. They cruised past No. 4 Florida State in the Sweet 16 as Hunter Dickinson led the way for Michigan, controlling the game from the low post. UCLA has been on a miracle run, bringing back memories of past Bruins teams, but this could be the end. Iain is looking at the spread to make his bet on this game.

The show has been on a good little run on NBA player props and Ninja is looking to keep that going. He’s betting a player points total in the game between the Minnesota Timberwolves and Brooklyn Nets. We all know the Nets can fill it up with anyone in the NBA, and they can allow their opponents to get theirs as well. There is one player who is on the rise for Minnesota and Ninja likes his OVER tonight.
