Why Bet The No. 7 Seeded Wisconsin Badgers At +1
Wisconsin has experience in the NCAA Tournament. Bronson Koenig hit the game winning shot against the Xavier Musketeers in the Round of 32. Koenig hit a fade away three. But Koenig isn’t the only player with a lot of NCAA Tournament experience. Nigel Hayes has a ton of experience as well. Both Ethan Happ and Zak Showalter also have experience playing in the Big Dance.
Why Bet The No. 6 seeded Notre Dame Irish at -1
Notre Dame found a way to beat hot Stephen F. Austin. The Irish were only 1.5 point favorites to take down the Lumberjacks in the Round of 32. All game long, it felt like Stephen F. Austin was going to find a way to gain separation from the Irish. But the Irish managed a 76 to 75 win. The win over the Lumberjacks came on the heels of an epic comeback victory over Michigan in Round 1. In that game, Notre Dame was down 41 to 29 at halftime. The Irish beat the Wolverines 70 to 63.
March Madness Sweet Sixteen Expert Pick & Final Score Prediction
This should be one of the best games of the entire NCAA Tournament. Both of these teams have shown the type of resiliency that squads need in order to make it to the Final Four.
But I have to give the edge to Wisconsin. The Badgers have 4 players in their starting 5 who made it all the way to the NCAA Championship game last season. Wisconsin is the team that knocked off undefeated Kentucky in 2015. The Badgers should find a way to beat Notre Dame, just like they found a way to beat Xavier in Round 2, on March 25. I’m with the Badgers in a close one.
