Betting Oral Roberts Golden Eagles
The Eagles are once again road dogs at the best March Madness sportsbooks. Max Abmas and Kevin Obanor were an effective scoring tandem all season for the Golden Eagles. Abmas scored 24.5 points per game. Obanor averaged 19 points.
The two stars have upped their game on the national stage to help lead their squad on this unlikely trip to the Sweet 16. Abmas and Obanor had a total of 59 points in Oral Roberts’ 75-72 OT win as 15-point underdogs versus the Ohio State Buckeyes.
As well as for54 points in the 81-78 victory over the Florida Gators as nine-point underdogs. Before their season ended with a 7-0 SU and 6-1 ATS run, the Golden Eagles were 11-10 SU and 10-8 ATS. It was difficult to imagine Oral Roberts as a real threat to a strong team like the Buckeyes before the NCAA Tourney started. But seeing Abmas and Obanor coming together at this level, it is almost a shock that the Golden Eagles weren’t seeded higher.
Per the best sportsbooks, The Eagles are 6-0 ATS in their past six overall. 5-0 ATS in their past five following an ATS win. 5-0 ATS in their past five as an underdog. And 5-0 ATS in their past five neutral-site games.
Betting Arkansas Razorbacks
Following an easy 85-68 win over the Colgate Raiders as 8.5-point faves, the Razorbacks found themselves as two-point underdogs in the Round of 32 versus the Texas Tech Red Raiders. The game was as close as the spread suggested it would be.
In the end Arkansas prevailed in a 68-66 win. Justin Smith had 20 points. Devonte Davis and Moses Moody each had 15 in the win. Arkansas’ offensive ranked 12th in the country. They averaged 82 points per game.
With Texas Tech and its top-25 defense taken care of, the Razorbacks shouldn’t have any problem getting into a shootout with the Eagles. The Razorbacks are 11-1 SU and 10-2 ATS over their last 12 games. The Razorbacks are 10-2 ATS in the past 12 overall. 9-2 ATS in their past 11 as a favorite. 4-1 ATS in their past five neutral-site games. And 7-2 ATS in their past nine after an ATS win.

Oral Roberts vs. Arkansas March Madness Picks
Let’s stick with Oral Roberts in this game. The Eagles have been practicing some topnotch basketball in their last seven games. They stunned Ohio State in the first round. They kept it going with a scrappy win over Florida on Sunday.
Arkansas will be another solid opponent. The Razorbacks had to sweat to get rid of Texas Tech but didn’t have any problems with Colgate. This one should be an interesting matchup. We like Oral Roberts to keep the momentum and pick up another cover. This game should be fun to watch.
Having said that, Arkansas has also been on a tear on both ends of the ball for the past two months against stronger competition. Expect the Razorbacks to do enough defensively to eventually allow the offense to get the win.
