Why #9 Oklahoma Sooners a good bet +11.5?

The Oklahoma Sooners didn’t just beat first round opponent Ole Miss, they absolutely dominated them. As a +1 dog, the Sooners were expected to be in a tough fight.

That didn’t happen at all. Oklahoma pummeled Mississippi 95-72. They shot 57.6% from the field and 46.2% from three. If their shooters are on fire on March 24, they’ll have a shot to upset the Cavaliers on the moneyline.

Why #1 Virginia Cavaliers are a good bet -11.5?

Virginia didn’t cover the spread in their 71-56 win over Weber State. They did play UVA basketball, shutting down Weber State on the defensive end while taking their time and only taking good shots on the offensive end.

Virginia’s tough to beat because they play a unique style of defense that has both man-to-man and zone elements. The Cavaliers will employ that defense against Oklahoma, which should lead to a win and cover.

Oklahoma vs Virginia Final March Madness Analysis

Oklahoma looked great when beating the Rebels, but they could look just as bad against the Virginia Cavaliers. The Sooners won’t shoot lights out versus the Cavaliers’ defense.

Almost as important, Virginia will force Oklahoma to play their style, like they do against almost every opponent. If Oklahoma can’t pick up the pace, UVA should build at least a 10 point lead by halftime. Virginia has only gone 1-3 ATS in their last 4. This is one game where they’ll win against the spread.

2019 March Madness Pick: Virginia -11.5
