March Madness: Florida vs. Oral Roberts odds, picks and prediction

Bet at

The No. 7 seed Florida Gators (15-9) take on the 15th-seeded Oral Roberts Golden Eagles (17-10) Sunday in a South Region second-round tilt at Indiana Farmers Coliseum in Indianapolis. Tip-off is scheduled for 7:45 p.m. ET. Below, we analyze the Florida-Oral Roberts odds and lines, with March Madness NCAA Tournament picks and predictions.

The Gators needed overtime to get past Virginia Tech 75-70 in the first round, winning outright as 1.5-point underdogs as the Over (134.5) connected. The offensive production was the highest for Florida since an 85-point explosion in a win over West Virginia Jan. 30 in the SEC/Big 12 Challenge. Despite the cover against the Hokies, the Gators are still 1-4 ATS across the past five games overall.

The Golden Eagles pulled off a shocker over No. 2 seed Ohio State in the first round, stunning the Buckeyes 75-72 in overtime as 15-point underdogs with the Under (157) still cashing. ORU is on a six-game win streak, while covering each of the past five games. Sophomore G Max Abmas and junior F Kevin Obanor were the heroes for the Golden Eagles. Abmas finished with 29 points, 5 rebounds, 3 assists and 2 steals while draining 5 3-pointers. Obanor did him one better, dropping 30 points with 11 rebounds, while also adding 5 3-pointers.

Florida vs. Oral Roberts: Odds, lines, predictions and picks


Florida 75, Oral Roberts 68

Money line (ML)

Florida (-450) will cost you four and a half times your potential return, and Oral Roberts (+333) proved it’s not a team the Gators should take lightly. An upset is definitely possible, even as unlikely as it seems for a 15 seed to make the Sweet Sixteen. PASS.

Against the spread (ATS)

ORAL ROBERTS +8.5 (-110) has been on quite the run against the number lately, going 5-0 ATS in the past five overall, and 4-0 ATS in the previous four as an underdog. Florida has cashed just once in the past six games as a favorite, and are 1-5 ATS in the previous six against winning teams.

Over/Under (O/U)

UNDER 148.5 (-110) is worth playing very lightly. Even with an overtime game, ORU hit the Under in their first-round upset of Ohio State. The Under is 4-0-1 in the past five games for Florida as a favorite, while going 7-2-1 in their past 10 games overall. The Under is also 10-4 in the past 14 for the Gators on a neutral court as favorites.
