Vegas odds March Madness starts March 13th with a 6:40 pm tipoff in Dayton Ohio where two 16th seed teams go head to head for a chance to play in the First Round. LIU Brooklyn Blackbirds will face off against Radford Highlanders in a First Four betting odds game. The winner of this game will advance to play the Villanova Wildcats.
LIU beat top seed Wagner in the Northeast Conference Tournament and advanced to their seventh NCAA Tournament, in what some called a shocking win. Joel Hernandez had 32 points, 7 rebounds and led with 2 assists. Clark had the team high 8 rebounds. The Blackbirds sunk 53% of their field goal attempts and 36% of three pointers. Its been five years since their last tournament play. In 2013, LIU landed a spot in the Final Four against James Madison and lost. The Vegas odds makers favorite is listed as Radford at -5 1/2(-115) and the under dog as Long Island University at +5 1/2(-105). For the over/under bettor, the game total is listed as 137(-105)u and 137(-115)o.
Radford won the Big South Conference Championship in a buzzer beater by Calik Jones. Jones led the team with 13 points but 3 of those made the difference in the end and 13 rebounds. Scottie James pulled down the most rebounds. The odds makers stats have Radford with lower field goal and three pointer percentages and 1 less rebound then the Liberty Flames. Maybe the difference maker was the 15 turnovers by Liberty versus the Highlanders 7. Radford looks to win against LIU in their first NCAA tournament berth since 2009. Which team will you pick as the favorite?
