5 Best Point Total NCAA Tournament Predictions: First Round Friday

By

2. (2) Ohio State vs (15) Oral Roberts

Point Total: 157
Pick: Over
Bet on this, BetMGM latest line

Get in, make sure your seat belt is tight, and enjoy the ride.

You want to get past 157 points? Oral Roberts has scored 80 or more in 15 of their 26 games, and five of those other 11 either got to 157 or blew past it.

Oral Roberts shoots threes.

It shoots threes, and then it shoots more threes, and then it shoots more, and occasionally it takes free throws – and makes them.

The Golden Eagles are No. 1 in the nation in free throw percentage, they’re No. 1 in the nation in three pointers per game, and they’re No. 3 in the nation in three point field goals overall.

Oh, they’re going to lose to Ohio State – and badly – but they’re going to keep on firing up threes for a full 40 minutes, and they’re going to make the Buckeyes keep trying, too.

By the way, Oral Roberts gives up 76 points per game.

Ohio State? It scored 70 points or more in 22 of 30 games. It’s going to blow past 70 getting off the bus, and it shouldn’t have any issues getting to 80.
