Why #9 Washington Huskies a good bet +11.5?

As a 3.5 dog against Utah State, the Huskies weren’t supposed to dominate the way they did. Washington demonstrated why many believe they’re the best team from the Pac 12 in this year’s NCAA Tournament.

The Huskies put a 78-61 beating onto the Aggies, a top Mountain West Conference team. Washington’s defense was on point while they shot lights out. The Huskies are a serious basketball team that has the talent to hang with North Carolina.

Why #1 North Carolina Tar Heels are good bet -11.5?

Down 31-35 to Iona at halftime, North Carolina was in danger of becoming only the second team to fall to a 16-seed in the history of the NCAA Tournament.

The Tar Heels dominated in the second half, outscoring Iona 55-35, and showed why the Selection Committee made them a 1-seed. Now that North Carolina has a win underneath them, they’ll have no trouble handling the 8-seeded Huskies and moving into the Sweet 16.

Washington vs North Carolina Final March Madness Betting Analysis

Washington played well versus Utah State, but they face a major mountain to climb on Sunday. North Carolina looked horrible in the first half against Iona. They turned it on in the second half by simply playing basketball.

The Tar Heels are one of the top teams in the nation because they can lean on two to three different players. Washington doesn’t have that luxury. The Huskies should have an awful time dealing with Luke Maye, who will no doubt dominate in the paint. Maye will lead the Tar Heels to a win and cover.

March Madness Betting Pick: North Carolina -11.5
