Oregon State has been impressive so far in the postseason. The Beavers carried over the momentum from their surprising Big 12 Tournament victory, dispatching Tennessee 70-56 in the first round and Oklahoma State by an 80-70 count in the second round. The Beavers have covered five in a row, and they’re an insane 12-1 ATS across the past 13 games overall. The Over is also 7-1 across their past eight outings.
The Ramblers have rumbled into the Sweet Sixteen, topping ACC Champion Georgia Tech by a 71-60 score as five-point favorites in the first round. While some might argue they caught a break with ACC Player of the Year Moses Wright being held out due to COVID, there was nothing to say about their impressive second-round win. They bounced No. 1 seed Illinois from the tournament, much to the delight of 101-year-old super fan Sister Jean Schmidt. Cameron Krutwig dominated against the Illini with 19 points, 12 rebounds, five assists and four steals.
