Ohio State No. 2 (29-7) vs. Cincinnati No. 6 (25-10) Thursday March 22

This battle of Ohio will have the Buckeyes as the favorite, but Cincinnati is hoping they will get the same results as the last two meetings the two schools have had. In 1961, the Bearcats defeated the Buckeyes to win the national championship behind the great Oscar Robertson. The next year the two met again, Cincinnati took the Championship once again.

Bearcats +8

The Buckeyes have the best player between the two teams. Jared Sullinger leads the Buckeyes in scoring andrebounding. He combined for 30 points and 15 boards in their first two games of the tournament. Cincinnati’s Yancy Gates will be able to match up his strength against Sullinger in the paint however; Deshaun Thomas of the Buckeyes will be the key. The 6-7 225 pounder is a shooting guard and commands the attention of opponents. He scored 49 points between the two games and grabbed 19 rebounds. He could pose a big problem for the undersized Bearcats defense.

Cincinnati beat Florida State in a tough battle to reach the Sweet 16 62-56. They entered the game as 3-point underdogs and covered that spread with their outright win. The Buckeyes defeated Gonzaga 73-66 to cover a 7 ‘-point favorite spread. Ohio State is 29-7 SU and 18-14 ATS, while Cincinnati is 26-10 SU and 17-13 ATS.

Head to head the two teams last played in 2006. Ohio State took that game 72-50. The current line has the Buckeyes as 8-point favorites. The total is currently sitting at 129 ‘. The Ohio State strength and height advantage will take its toll during the course of the game. Thomas should have his way with whoever guards him. If they put too much attention on him then the All American Sullinger will take control of the game. Nevertheless, eight points is a large spread at this stage of the tournament.

Pick: Cincinnati (8) Total: OVER
