Winthrop Eagles NCAA Tournament odds

Winthrop Eagles outlook

The Eagles are 23-1. No, the Big South Conference is nothing special; but 23-1 is 23-1, Winthrop team that is probably better than they are given credit for. This squad tore through its conference tournament, as well, winning by an average of 25.6 points per game. The Eagles earned a No. 12 seed, and although they are facing an opponent (Villanova) that was once in line for something much better than a No. 5 seed this should still be a winnable first-round game. After all, the Wildcats are without veteran point guard Collin Gillespie. The Eagles play fast and have a ton of depth; they may try to wear down a depleted ‘Nova squad. Purdue would be a potential second-round opponent.
