NCAA men's basketball tournament Betting Online: If you’re looking for the best advice for NCAA men’s basketball gambling, you’ve certainly come to the right place. Here at Bookmaker sportsbook we’re previewing the Elite 8, which takes place March 27th and March 28th, 2016 in Louisville, Anaheim, Philadelphia and Chicago, featuring the Oklahoma Sooners, the North Carolina Tar Heels, the Iowa Hawkeyes and the Villanova Wildcats.
The 2016 NCAA season has been filled with ups and downs so far and with more than a month to go, there could be a few more shifts ahead but Oklahoma is emerging as the clear favorite and could be headed to the Elite 8, which takes place March 26th and March 27th, 2016. Considering the team’s record so far, the Sooners could be among those favored in NCAA basketball gambling.
Oklahoma has a record of 18-2 and currently sits first in the Big 12 Conference. The Sooners are ranked first in the Associated Press standings and the team’s only two losses came to Kansas and Iowa State this year. Oklahoma has captured impressive wins over teams like Villanova, West Virginia, Iowa State and Baylor so far this regular season. The offense is led by senior guard Buddy Hield, who is averaging 26.2 points a game right now. He gets some help from Jordan Woodard and Isaiah Cousins who combine for another 27 points a game. Oklahoma lost to Michigan State in the Sweet 16 last year. The team has never won a national title but has finished in the runner-up spot twice in his career.
Other teams who look on track to do well this year include the Iowa Hawkeyes, the Villanova Wildcats and the North Carolina Tar Heels. All three teams currently sit within the Top 5 of the Associate Press standings. Villanova is 18-3 so far and sit in first place in the Big East. Josh Hart and Ryan Arcidiacono lead the offenses while Daniel Ochefu is another strong presence off the boards. The Wildcats lost to Oklahoma on December 7th and also fell to Virginia and Providence this year. Iowa is 17-4 so far with victories over Michigan State and Purdue. The Hawkeyes offense is averaging 81.2 points a game behind Jarrod Uthoff, the team’s leading scorer. North Carolina is 19-3 and is ninth in the nation for points scored, averaging 84.9 a game and the team sits seventh in the nation in assists with 18.5 a game. Brice Johnson is the offensive leader with Marcus Paige and Joel Berry II as two more weapons.
The 2015 Elite 8 consisted of Gonzaga, Duke, Michigan State, Louisville, Wisconsin and Arizona. Michigan State, Arizona and Louisville are the only three team’s that are nationally ranked currently so this year could see a completely new lineup. Duke, the reigning national champion, is 16-6 so far this season. The team suffered a three-game losing streak to Clemson, Notre Dame, Syracuse, all unranked teams, back in January and dropped out of the Top 25 ranking in NCAA men’s basketball gambling.
