BetsByBob's March Madness Elite Eight picks: Time's up for the Beavers
The Elite Eight has arrived and we’ve got two hot games to get excited for tonight.
There were mixed feelings with my picks yesterday as I went 1-2, but did succeed with my lock of the day by picking Alabama and UCLA to go over the game total, albeit with the assistance of overtime. With just seven games to go in the NCAA Tournament, let’s try and round off March Madness in style.

Houston Cougars -8 to beat Oregon State Beavers
Houston came into the last game overlooked and underrated. They held a red hot Syracuse team to near-season lows and that’s not an outlier. They have an outstanding defense and it will show on Monday. There is a good reason that they are the number two ranked team and they deserve it. They will prove it as they shut down the Beavers on Sunday.
Be sure to check out the full game preview for Oregon State Beavers vs. Houston Cougars.
Baylor Bears -7 to beat Arkansas Razorbacks
Baylor is coming off a huge win over Villanova where they dominated them in the second half after being down in the first half. They very much looked like the team that they were at the beginning of the season as the ones to challenge Gonzaga for the National Championship. Arkansas has fallen behind every game and it’ll catch up to them here against a great defense. Baylor rolls to the Final Four.
