Oregon (7) vs. Iowa (2) (CBS, 12:10 pm ET) - Iowa -5½ O/U 147
Oregon is here because of a no-contest win over VCU due to Covid issues. But this is a prime choice for an upset win as the team has just two losses since February 4th and with skilled athletes such as Eugene Omoruyi, they have the kind of players that can give Iowa fits. Luka Garza has been lights out for the Hawkeyes and this is a team playing great basketball, but they still gave up 74 points to Grand Canyon in round one, the third time in their last four games an opponent has averaged at least 1.08 points per possession. The defense could be vulnerable to an experienced Ducks attack.
The Pick: Oregon 82-79 - Oregon +185 & Over.

Oklahoma (8) vs. Gonzaga (1) (CBS, 2:40 pm ET) - Gonzaga -14½ O/U 155
Oklahoma managed a tight 72-68 win over a Missouri squad that finished their season 3-7 in their last ten. They did it without their second-best scorer, as De’Vion Harmon was a late scratch. Now they’ll be taking on the top team in the country who just set their own tournament points record in a 98-55 round one win over Norfolk State. Gonzaga with the best offense in the country does not seem to be shrinking from the pressure of being the favorites, looking to win their first ever national championship.
The Pick: Gonzaga 88-70 - Gonzaga -14½ & Over.

Abilene Christian (14) vs. UCLA (11) (TBS, 5:15 pm ET) - UCLA -4½ O/U 133½
Before you dismiss Abeline Christian as a one-time fluke after dispatching Texas, keep in mind that the Wildcats led the entire nation in defensive turnover rate this season. They are also 13-1 in their last 14 games. This team is clicking at the perfect time. The down side however, is that in spite their big win over Texas, they shot just 30% from the field. UCLA looks like a different team since the play-in round and now have momentum after big wins over Michigan State and BYU. Those four straight losses preceding this recent run seems like a distant memory, but a team that’ been streaky relying on their 3-point game taking on a terrific defense, has me thinking the Wildcats can keep this close.
The Pick: UCLA 60-58 - Abilene Christian +4½ & Under.
