March Madness 2019 – Sweet 16 Picks

Posted March 26, 2019 | By Daryl @ Betting Gods

The Sweet 16 kicks off with the Seminoles vs. Bulldogs, which should be a great game of College Basketball action.

Florida State Seminoles vs. Gonzaga Bulldogs @ Honda Center

Past Meetings And Form

The Seminoles and Bulldogs have played each other only twice throughout history, with Gonzaga winning in 2010 and Florida State winning 75-60 in an upset last year.

That win will give Florida State plenty of confidence going forward and although they haven’t quite faced any stiff competition throughout March Madness to date, they have been too classy for their opponents.

A 76-69 win over Vermont was backed up with a 90-62 domination of Murray State. They should have confidence coming into this game.

Gonzaga is a #1 seed for a reason and that showed with wins over Fairleigh Dickinson (87-49) and Baylor (83-71). They have the best offense in the nation but it has been their defense which has been their calling card throughout the National Tournament to date.

Giving up only 120 points in two games will get the job done on most occasions and with an even-keeled team on the court, the Bulldogs are awfully tough to beat.

Verdict

Gonzaga is the better team coming into this game as they have shown that all season long, but bookmakers have set the line at 7.5 and that swings us in the favor of Florida State.

The Seminoles don’t have the depth that Gonzaga possesses, but they’re easily good enough to hang around for the majority of the game. They might fail late, but there’s rarely a blowout in the Sweet 16 and we can’t see Gonzaga winning this by double digits.

Purdue Boilermakers vs. Tennessee Volunteers @ KFC Yum! Center

There’s little separating these teams in the betting and an even contest is expecting for this Sweet 16 clash.

Past Meetings And Form

These two teams have met twice in the past, with Purdue winning the first game by a point and Tennessee winning the second game by three points in overtime.

That shows bettors just how close these two teams are and bookmakers are having a tough time finding an outright favorite.

Purdue comes into this game having beaten Old Dominion and last year’s winners Villanova. Their most recent win over Villanova might have been seen as an upset but the 2019 Villanova wasn’t as good as they were last season.

Tennessee held off Iowa in overtime and they only defeated Colgate by seven points prior to that. More will be needed against Purdue.

Verdict

Tennessee looked the goods earlier in the season but they have regressed towards the latter half of the season.

Purdue are coming on strong and we like them to score a narrow win.

Texas Tech Red Raiders vs. Michigan Wolverines @ Honda Center

Michigan puts their tried and tested reputation on the line against the upstart Texas Tech Red Raiders in the third Sweet 16 game this week.

Past Meetings And Form

This is the first meeting between Texas Tech and Michigan. They both boast impressive form coming into the Sweet 16, with Michigan winning against Montana and Florida. Texas Tech notched wins over Northern Kentucky and Buffalo.

We put Michigan’s 64-49 win over Florida as the best-ranked win of their season as Florida was a steady team throughout the year.

Texas Tech has had a slightly easier road to the Sweet 16 but we’re not going to take anything away from their quality season.

Verdict

It’s a little surprising to see the Wolverines as only the –2 favorites for this game. Over the course of history, they have been one of the better NCAA Basketball teams and we’ll confidently back them in here.

Oregon Ducks vs. Virginia Cavaliers @ KFC Yum! Center

The Ducks meet the #1 seeded Cavaliers in what should be a closer contest than what bookmakers are predicting.

Past Meetings And Form

Virginia has won both past meetings against Oregon, scoring a 63-48 win in 2010 and a 67-54 win in 2011.
The Cavaliers suffered a late-season loss to Florida State, which was mostly because of their missed three-pointer attempts, but they rebounded with wins against Gardner Webb and Oklahoma.

It’s a similar team that became the first #1 seeded team to lose in the first-round last season and that could play on their minds against a tough Ducks team.

The Ducks haven’t been tested against Wisconsin and UC Irvine, winning by a combined margin of 37 points. Those wins hold them in good stead for this and they shouldn’t be 8.5-point underdogs.

Verdict

We’re respecting the three-point shooting and defense of the Virginia Cavaliers but the Oregon Ducks are a powerful and physical team. The +8.5 points is too high to pass up.
