Ohio State (29-7) has turned into a big chance to win the National Championship, mainly because of how easy their region and schedule has been. As a 2-seed, Ohio State has beaten Iona, Iowa State and now Arizona. The result in the Iona game was never in jeopardy but the other two are not the same. After a controversial call on Aaron Craft’s block, Ohio State beat Iowa State in dramatic fashion. With the game locked up, Craft went down and drilled a three with 0.2 seconds left and won the game for the Buckeyes. Next up, Ross hit a three at the buzzer to top Arizona. This game was also tied heading into that last possession.
Wichita State (29-8) has been a tremendous story heading into the Elite 8. A lot of people thought that they were going to be eliminated after their first game. Not at all, the Shockers crushed Pittsburgh in the Round of 64 before beating the 1-seed Gonzaga. Gonzaga was struggling heading into that game but Wichita State still won the game. After that, Wichita State defeated fellow Cinderella La Salle in the Sweet 16.
Ohio State is 20-13-1 against the spread this season while the Shockers are 18-14-2 ATS.
I could definitely see Wichita State pulling the upset here and I think the game will be close but Ohio State has shown in two straight games that they can win in the waning moments at www.sportsbookroom.com.
