College Basketball Betting: NCAA – OREGON DUCKS vs. OKLAHOMA SOONERS (3/26)

COLLEGE BASKETBALL — March 26

NCAA Tournament – West Final
OREGON vs. OKLAHOMA

(America’s Bookie Line: Oregon -1, Total 152.5) — You absolutely have to respect what Oregon did in dismantling Duke, and point guard Casey Benson really rose to the occasion. The Ducks have now won eleven games in a row, and we are not going to disparage what they can do after their victory over the defending champs, who still have an awful lot of talent. But Oklahoma has a few advantages, including the experience everybody had in making it to the Sweet 16 last season. Buddy Hield is a senior, which is unusual for a player of the year candidate, and he is the most explosive player on the floor, as well as the entire college game, but the Sooners can win even if he is not super-hot, as happened against Texas A&M, when he scored just 17. Isaiah Cousins and Jordan Woodard can pick up the slack on any given night, and even though we’re not sure they can compete as well inside, they present a backcourt that is hard to stop from the outside (42.6%).
