The over/under is boring. Let’s take matters into our own hands.

PICKING POINT TOTALS IN THESE 3 WOMEN'S SWEET 16 GAMES

No. 10 South Dakota vs. No. 3 Michigan

Total combined point range 131-140 +300 (bet $100 to win $300)

The Coyotes are a veteran squad led by three fifth-year seniors: Chloe Lamb (16.1 PPG), Hannah Sjerven (15) and Liv Korngable (12.7) averaging 69.5 points per game on 44.2 percent shooting.

On the other hand, there’s Michigan’s walking bucket Naz Hillmon, who recorded her 50th career double-double against Villanova (27 points and 11 rebounds). 

With the O/U set at 123.5, we like the final score to fall somewhere between 131-140 based on the offensive firepower on both ends.

No. 3 Indiana vs. No. 2 Connecticut

Total combined point range 111 – 120 +280 (bet $100 to win $280)

Indiana’s offense was CLICKING this year until the Round of 32, 56-point slog. Though Mackenzie Holmes is back from a knee injury and averaging 14.5 points per game through the first two rounds, and guard Grace Berger is dominating with a career-high 16.3 points per game this season, there’s concern if they’ll get back on track so quickly. 

UConn had a grind of a game of their own in the second round where the offense was STRUGGLING. Paige Bueckers is still somewhat limited from injury, and the Huskies needed all four of Azzi Fudd’s threes to get by

With the O/U set at 125.5, we don’t expect extreme fireworks from two teams with stars not playing full minutes.

No. 5 Notre Dame vs. No. 1 NC State

Total combined point range 151-160 +390 (bet $100 to win $390)

Diamond Johnson is – pardon the pun – a GEM. The 5-foot-5 sophomore is the Wolfpack’s second-leading scorer (11.1 PPG) behind Elissa Cunane (13.8 PPG) despite only starting ONE game this season. NC State boasts 12 straight dubs – 10 of them by double digits – since their 69-66 loss at, wait for it, Notre Dame on Feb. 1. 

Notre Dame’s been UNREAL this tournament, highlighted by a ridiculous blowout against Oklahoma (the Irish led by as many as 45 points) where four starters finished with double-digits, and senior guard Dara Mabrey recorded a career-high 29. 

This matchup just oozes BUCKETS and with the O/U at 143.5 we expect it to POP OFF!!
