Who We Like: Oklahoma may have the most dynamic player in the NCAA Tournament in Trae Young, but the Sooners have been a mess over the later half of the season. They are just 2-9 on the road straight up and against the spread. Oklahoma hasn’t won a game away from home in 2018. Rhode Island is a team that could be dangerous as a 7 seed. The Rams have the ability to put up big points and can defend. Look for them to cause problems for Young today and roll to a comfortable win.
