North Carolina was the regular season champion of the Atlantic Coast Conference and has a record of 28-7 straight up and 15-16-1 against the spread. The Tar Heels did not cover the spread in their two opening round wins of the Big Dance as they beat LIU 102-87 and followed that up with a highly controversial 86-83 win over Washington.
Marquette is looking like a potentially good fit for Cinderella slippers as they beat Xavier 66-55 in the first round of the Big Dance and then followed that up with a highly impressive 66-62 win over Big East rival Syracuse.
The Golden Eagles were the 11th and last team picked for the NCAA Tournament out of the Big East and now have a March Madness gambling record of 22-14 straight up and 18-12 against the spread.
Kentucky is considered one of the most dangerous teams in the field. The Wildcats escaped the first round with a 59-57 win over Princeton and followed that up with a 71-63 win over West Virginia. Kentucky is 27-8 straight up and 14-15-1 against the spread.
Ohio State has a record of 34-2 straight up and 18-15 against the spread. The Buckeyes are the top seed for the Big Dance and paid out with the March Madness odds in a 75-46 win over Texas San Antonio and followed that up with a 98-66 win over George Mason.
