The Knights came into the tourney RED-HOT as Brittney “Buckets” Smith went for a career-high 26 points, and we have a feeling she’ll continue to live up to her namesake. For the Huskies, Christyn Williams led the squad with 13 points, but UConn spread the love, getting production from their nine regulars to the tune of 83 points. With multiple capable scorers on both sides, this game screams BUCKETS.
No. 1 NC State vs. No. 9 Kansas State O/U 129.5 (-110)
The combined point total for both teams must be more than 130 points (bet $110 to win $100)
Led by Raina Perez’s 16 points, five Wolfpack players tallied double figures in their first-round victory for a total of 96 points (nearly a hundo!) On the other side, All-American honoree Ayoka Lee is not only the first player in school history — but also the only player in the nation this season — to register the combination of 700 or more points, 300 or more rebounds and 90 or more blocked shots. Watch out for Perez and Lee to rain shots straight to the over!!
No. 3 Michigan vs. No. 11 Villanova O/U 127.5 (-110)
The combined point total for both teams must be more than 128 points (bet $110 to win $100)
Naz Hillmon put on an absolute clinic in the first round for the Wolverines, notching 24 points, surpassing her season average of 21 per game. Two of her teammates, Emily Kiser and Leigha Brown, added double figures. The Wildcats have a scoring superstar in their own right in Maddy Siegrist, who entered the day ranked No. 2 nationally (25.9 points per game). The two teams combined for 135 in the first round and the OVER here looks mighty tasty.
No. 3 LSU vs. No. 6 Ohio State O/U 130 (-110)
The combined point total for both teams must be more than 131 points (bet $110 to win $100)
When a top player literally has “point” in her name, you know what we’re expecting!! Khayla Pointer was LSU’s hero on Saturday, sinking the game-winning three and coming up clutch when it counted with 11 fourth-quarter points. Another indicator the over is in reach, Ohio State averaged a whopping 79.2 points per game with Jacy Sheldon leading the Buckeyes in points (25). The dynamic duo of Sheldon and Taylor Mikesell combined to score 39 of OSU’s 63 points in the first round.
