NCAA Tournament Odds -- Stanford and Dayton Slug It Out For Elite Eight Berth


Stanford has powered its way through upsets over New Mexico and Kansas, both of which were nationally-ranked. And Johnny Dawkins' squad has been able to take advantage of its size, particularly in the last round, where the Jayhawks were without freshman Joel Embiid. The Cardinal put forth quite a defensive effort in holding Kansas to 33% shooting and 57 points, which was the lowest total the Jayhawks had scored this season.

Dayton has won six of its last seven games, both straight-up and against the college basketball odds. The Flyers have beaten big-name programs in their two tournament games, with "squeakers" over Ohio State (60-59) and Syracuse (55-53). This required some clutch plays for this team, which is now making its first trip to the Sweet 16 in thirty years.

Stanford has had to shake off an 84-59 disaster at the hands of UCLA in the Pac-12 tournament, a result so awful (they surrendered 65% from the field) that it easily could have left the team out of the Big Dance. Let's just say there has been some redemption, and Stanford has proven that it can play in close games, with its wins coming by eight combined points. .

In the NCAA Tournament odds that have been posted on this game, Stanford is a three-point favorite to move on, with the total posted at 133 points.

Dayton gets along with an ensemble effort, with a 11-2 record against the basketball lines as an underdog. Stanford has a star on the floor, when you consider guard Chasson Randle, who is one of the Pac-12's best (18.8 ppg). He is the guy Dayton has to concentrate on stopping.

You can't say that Dayton coach Archie Miller won't get a good scouting report, as he can just call his brother, Arizona coach Sean Miller, who is quite familiar with the Cardinal. But guess what?
