In a highly unlikely showdown, Ole Miss will take on La Salle for the right to be a double-digit seed that makes it to the Sweet 16. Check out the NCAA Tournament odds at Top Bet sportsbook.
Ole Miss (27-8) is quite the story. Marshall Henderson has absolutely willed and talked his way to the Round of 32 and a very manageable chance for a Sweet 16 bid. The Rebels were the Cinderella of the SEC Tournament as the came back and beat on the top seed, Florida. Because of that, they earned a 12-seed in the Big Dance against one of the hottest teams in the country in Wisconsin. They dismantled the Badgers and then saw an upset with La Salle’s big win.
La Salle (23-9) is one of the Philadelphia teams that are making some noise in the NCAA Tournament this year. La Salle had to open up play in one of the first four matchups and was actually the underdog to Boise State. They dealt with the Broncos pretty easily, defeating them by nine points. After that win, they had to quickly get ready for 4-seed Kansas State. No problem for the Explorers. La Salle had a huge halftime lead on the Wildcats but let them get back into the game. La Salle held off and earned a trip to the Round of 32.
Ole Miss is 18-12 against the spread and covered in their first game in the Tournament. La Salle is 14-12-2 ATS this season and is now 2-0 ATS in Tournament games.
I think La Salle is a very good team as I said when I picked them in the First Four. I believe the run ends because Ole Miss has faced the tougher tests and has a scorer in Marshall Henderson who can really light it up so to take the Rebels Click Here.
