Written by on March 22, 2016

The 2016 March Madness has been full of surprises and college basketball betting opportunities. The tournament is just a few days away from the final rounds, but if you are looking to make your betting on the Sweet 16 more exciting, then just take a look at some of these teaser picks we have put together for all college basketball betting fans. So let’s begin.

March Madness Sweet 16 Teaser Picks

Miami (+4.5) vs. Villanova, O/U 142.5

When: 7:10 PM ET, Thursday, March 24, 2016Where: KFC Yum! Center, Louisville, KentuckyLine: Villanova -4.5Total: Over/Under: 142.5Stream this game liveThese are two high scoring teams, reason why I like this game to go over, but not by much. However, I think that Villanova will win this game fairly consistently. So I would choose a 2-team, 3-point teaser here. I would be willing to push that spread up to 7.5 points and take the point total down to 139.5, so I’d take Villanova and the over here. 

Texas A&M (+1.5) vs Oklahoma, O/U 145

When: 7:37 PM ET, Thursday, March 24, 2016Where: Honda Center, Anaheim, CaliforniaLine: Oklahoma -1.5Total: 145Based on what Texas A&M has exhibited so far, I think the Aggies have enough talent and skilled players to win this game, so I have some flexibility. I also think this game could go just barely over. So I’d take a 2-team, 4-point tease here. I’d take Texas A&M (-2.5) and then push that total down to 141, taking the over. OU and Texas A&M have the dynamic offenses to go over, but I also think that the Aggies can control the boards and defense down the stretch.

Maryland (+7) vs Kansas, O/U 146

When: 9:40 PM ET, Thursday, March 24, 2016Where: KFC Yum! Center, Louisville, KentuckyNCAA Betting Spread: Kansas -6½Total: 145. O/u -110The Jayhawks may be the overwhelming favorite to take it all, but I’m a little worried about this matchup. Kansas has the wood to advance to the next round, but Maryland will likely put its defense to work, and with that in mind, the smart pick here is to go for the game total.  I think Kansas can put up 80 points all by themselves, but in case you’re not that convinced, a 2-team, 3-point teaser  would push that line down a few points and push the total down to 143, and take this game to go over.

Duke (+2) vs Oregon, O/U 155

When: 10:07 PM ET, Thursday, March 24, 2016Where: Honda Center, Anaheim, CaliforniaLine: Oregon -2.5Total: 155, o/u -110This is definitely one of the hardest games to predict in the Sweet Sixteen round. I would push this line up to Oregon (-5) and the total down to 152, and then my 2-team, 3-point teaser would go with the Ducks and the over. 

Gonzaga (-4.5) vs Syracuse, O/U 135

When: 9:40 PM ET, Friday, March 25, 2016Where: United Center, Chicago, IllinoisLine: Gonzaga -5.5Total: 134.5Live Streaming: March Madness LiveI really don’t like this game total, but I feel confident with the over here. So I would do a 2-team, 2-point teaser, push the line to Syracuse (+6.5) and take the total down to 133, taking the over. 

Indiana (+6) vs North Carolina, O/U 159.5

When: 9:57 PM ET, Friday, March 25, 2016Where: Wells Fargo Center, Philadelphia, PennsylvaniaLine: North Carolina -5.5Total: Over/Under: 158.5Stream this game liveFinally, I would take Indiana in a 3 point teaser, and take the under by pushing that total up to 161.5.
