Welcome to the first round of March Madness, where the unexpected becomes the ordinary.
At Action Network, we have been tracking sharp action, public betting and the total handle throughout the week.
We have tracked sharp action coming in on the total in the round of 64 matchup between the No. 14 seed Longwood Lancers and the No. 3 seed Tennessee Volunteers.
The Lancers made the tournament out of the Big South Conference. They went 23-6 and 15-1 in the conference before wiping the floor in the conference tournament. They are the fifth-best 3-point shooting team in the nation at 38.6%.
The Volunteers also won their conference tournament. They entered the SEC Tournament with the third-shortest odds. Then went on to win three consecutive games over Mississippi State, Kentucky and Texas A&M to take home the title.
Tennessee is an 18-point favorite on most sportsbooks, but we will be more interested in the total, which is set at 133.
