Missouri at Memphis Sweet Sixteen Betting

December 1, 2010 NCAA Basketball

Sweet Sixteen betting on Thursday night should be exciting as #2 Memphis faces #3 Missouri in the West Region of the NCAA Tournament.

Memphis is a 4.5 point favorite against Missouri in March Madness odds.

Sweet Sixteen betting stats tell us that Missouri is 30-6 on the season and a very nice 19-10 against the spread.  Memphis is 33-3 straight up and a superb 23-12 against the pointspread.  Memphis has all kinds of trouble in their first round game against Cal State Northridge but they got things straightened out in the second rout and dismantled Maryland in Sweet Sixteen betting.  Memphis is a very balanced team that can get scoring from almost anyone.  Roburt Sallie had 35 points in the first round game to lead the Tigers while five players scored in double-figures in the win over Maryland. This is the fourth straight year that Memphis has been in the Sweet Sixteen.  Memphis has won 13 games in Sweet Sixteen betting in the past four years.

Missouri has had two tough wins against Cornell and Marquette in Sweet Sixteen betting.  The Tigers had to come from behind late against Marquette but they did the job as Leo Lyons and Kim English came through late. Lyons scored 18 points against the Golden Eagles and that was after putting up 23 points against Cornell.  Missouri will need a big game from DeMarre Carroll if they are to upset Memphis.  Head coach Mike Anderson has taken Missouri to the Sweet 16 for the first time since 2002.
