  • Spread: Virginia -7.5

Virginia opened as a 7.5-point favorite against Oregon in the Sweet 16, tied for the largest spread of the round with Duke. But is it high enough? Our projected spread is way off from opener in Vegas and offshore.

The Ducks have been on a tear. They won the Pac-12 Tournament and have topped their first two NCAA Tournament opponents by a combined 37 points.

Virginia struggled in the early going against Gardner-Webb but eventually pulled away, and looked comfortable in a 12-point win over Oklahoma in the second round.
