Ohio State vs George Mason Betting

George Mason tries to mimic its Cinderella run of several years ago when it takes on Ohio State on Sunday in the second round of the East.

Jared Sullinger and the rest of the Buckeye big men are fresh after their first-round rout, but GMU's big men aren't afraid. In our opinion, the Patriots are great value at +11.5 points, which is what they get at Sports Interaction at other top sportsbooks.

The Patriots are 23-8 ATS this season so they have been rewarding bettors all season. The total was at 135 or so.
