March Madness odds on Thursday have the Washington Huskies favored against the Mississippi State Bulldogs.
March Madness odds tell us that the Bulldogs are 23-12 straight up and 18-10-1 against the pointspread while Washington is 25-8 straight up and 18-11-1 against the spread.
March Madness odds favor the Huskies because of their talent and depth. Washington has two excellent guards in Justin Dentmon and freshman Isaiah Thomas, and big man Jon Brockman. During the regular season Brockman averaged a double-double with 14.8 points and 11.5 rebounds per game. The Huskies have a great inside-outside threat with the guard duo and Brockman. The Huskies also get nice production out of Quincy Pondexter. Looking at this team you can make a case for them going a long way in March Madness betting this season.
Mississippi State wins with defense. They played great defense in the SEC Tournament but they could have a tough time against a more talented Huskies squad. Center Jarvis Varnado is a great defensive player that can change the game and impact March Madness odds. The Bulldogs are pretty balanced on offense but they just don’t have a superstar to go to when they need him. Mississippi State got hammered on the boards this season and that is a major problem against Washington in this March Madness odds matchup. Mississippi State scores on offense by way of the three-point shot so if they are misfiring they are in serious trouble in March Madness odds.
