Bet Tonight's College Hoops Action

OUR PREDICTION: The over has hit in six of the Bulldogs' last seven NCAA tournament games as an underdog and is 7-2 in the Tar Heels' last nine NCAA tournament games. The over is also 6-1 in North Carolina's last seven NCAA tournament games when favored between 0.5 and 6.5 points and has cashed in 10 of the team's last 14 neutral site games as a favorite. Even though Gonzaga is No. 1 in defensive efficiency, these two teams can play an up-tempo game and if the two teams get into a shooting rhythm, then the combined score should go over the total.
