2022 Sweet 16 Picks for every game
The college basketball field is down to 16 teams and this is where everything will get interesting. Sure, you may have busted your bracket, but you can still bet on winners. Here are the picks for every game on Thursday night.
Arkansas vs Gonzaga
Arkansas is a gritty team that plays great defense. They struggle from shooting three-point shots, but can still keep this game close. The Hogs rank 14th in the country in adjusted defensive efficiency and coach Eric Musselman knows how to get the most out of this team. Stopping Gonzaga’s stud Drew Timme will not be easy, but this game is close. The Razorbacks are 4-0 against the spread (ATS) as underdogs and the Zags are on upset alert.
Michigan vs Villanova
This game is very interesting. Over 60 percent of the bets are on Villanova, yet the point spread is not moving. That is a clear sign that the smart money is on Michigan. The line opened at 5 and is now at five just hours before tip-off. The Wolverines are 35-14-2 ATS in the last 51 games at a neutral site. The Wolverine run is not over, they beat Villanova.
Houston vs Arizona
Houston will be playing a home game since this game is being played in San Antonio. Arizona is off an overtime game and they will have tired legs near the end of the game. The Wildcats are 3-10 ATS in their last 13 neutral site games as a favorite and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 NCAA Tournament games as a favorite. Houston wins.
Texas Tech vs Duke
Coach K mentioned that his team is under pressure because it is his last year. They had a valiant comeback against Michigan State, but they are going to run out of gas tonight. Texas Tech has a very experienced team that knows how to close out a young Duke team under pressure. The Red Raiders are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 NCAA Tournament games and they will end the Duke run and send off Coach K.
