Sweet 16 Southeast Betting – Bulldogs Looking To Recapture Magic In Southeast Sweet 16 Thursday

Posted by Washington Tucker on 2/6/2014 2:35:17 AM

For all of the March Madness betting talk about how the NCAA national title tournament is known for upsets, the Southeast region bracket had unfolded in every way possible to disprove that theory. That was until a familiar group of faces provided the biggest surprise of the tournament, when the eighth-seeded Butler Bulldogs knocked off the top-seeded Pittsburgh Panthers in the third round. The Bulldogs now head to the Sweet 16 where they will meet the remaining top-four seeds from the region, and it’s safe to say that intimidation will not be a factor.

Although there wasn’t much stock put in their buzzer-beating win over the Old Dominion Monarchs, the Bulldogs proved they can still bang with the big boys by taking down the Panthers. Butler was fortunate that Pittsburgh practically handed them the game in the dying seconds with that foul by Panthers’ forward Nasir Robinson in the dying seconds, but that won’t take away from what the Bulldogs did to put themselves in position to have that opportunity. Butler will face another tough task against the fourth-seeded Badgers, which have rebounded from a tough sports betting finish to their Big Ten season with a couple of big performances. Wisconsin scored a combined 98 points in its final two losses in conference play, falling to the Ohio State Buckeyes in their regular season finale before losing to the Penn State Nitany Lions in the first round of the conference title tournament. The Badgers have hit the 70-point mark in consecutive wins, with four different players that registered double-digit point totals to overcome the 38 that they allowed Jacob Pullen in their 70-65 win over the Kansas State Wildcats. The Bulldogs have been fortunate in the dance since the open of the 2010 national title tournament, and this is the game where their luck finally runs out.

(3) BYU Cougars vs. Florida Gators (2)
Thursday, 7:27 PM ET

The Cougars have benefited immensely from a couple of relatively soft matchups through their first two tournament games, having dismissed the Wofford Terriers with relative ease before they blew away the Gonzaga Bulldogs to reach the Sweet 16. BYU will battle an entirely different type of monster in the SEC East division champion Florida Gators, another team that hasn’t been tested much. The Gators destroyed UC Santa Barbara in the second round before Erving Walker exploded for 21 points in a 73-65 win over the UCLA Bruins. Walker will need more sports betting bonus support, and the health of guard Kenny Boynton will be key. Boynton has been Florida’s best defender all year, and they will need him to slow down the Cougars’ Jimmer Fredette. Fredette has taken the team on his shoulders since BYU suspended forward Brandon Davies late in the year, but this may finally be the game that fatigue pushes him to reach his limit.
