Oregon Looks to Extend Win Streak to 10

Oregon Ducks NCAA March Madness

The Oregon Ducks silenced all of the critics that mocked their No 1-seed selection with a resounding 91-52 victory over Holy Cross Friday. The win was their ninth straight and the Ducks will look to hit double digits when they face Saint Joseph’s in the Round of 32 Sunday.

Shark Bites
  • Saint Joe’s is 9-0 SU and ATS in its last nine games as a dog of 6.5 or less.
  • Oregon has gone 4-1 ATS in five Round of 32 appearances in the last 20 years.
  • No. 1 seeds are 22-3 SU versus No. 8 seeds since 2005.

Many felt like the Ducks were undeserving of their No. 1 seed and that the selection had robbed the Spartans of one of the four top spots. That has quickly been forgotten as the Spartans were stunned by Middle Tennessee and the Ducks are still dancing.

The Ducks have been a pretty good wager during their winning streak, putting up a 6-3 mark against the spread in their last nine. Books have opened the Ducks as 6.5-point favorites which is notable as they have gone 7-1 ATS in the last eight games when they have been faves at that number or lower.

Saint Joe’s has been no slouch either, however. The Hawks have a modest four-game win streak entering Sunday’s Round of 32 contest, but have covered the spread in each game.

They were 3.5-point dogs versus Cincinnati in their tournament opener, but prevailed – by the skin of their teeth mind you - 78-76 after a final Bearcats’ attempt came a fraction of a second too late.

With the way these two teams are playing, this has the potential to be one of Sunday’s best games.
