Date: Thursday, March 27, 2014

Time: 7:47 PM EST 

TV Channel: TBS

Location: Honda Center (Anaheim, CA)

Announcers: Marv Albert, Steve Kerr, Craig Sager

Opening Betting Line: Wisconsin -4 (137) via Odds Shark

Prediction: Baylor, a team that finished tied for sixth place in its own conference, now finds itself in the Sweet 16 after knocking off two teams (Cornhuskers, Creighton Bluejays) from the state of Nebraska. The Bears put on an offensive clinic against Creighton, shooting 11-of-18 from 3-point range and just under 64% overall.

Wisconsin's road to Anaheim was a little different. After destroying American, the Badgers needed to rally to erase a 12-point halftime deficit to Oregon. Wisconsin had all five starters in double-figures - great balance, to say the least. So who wins? We'll take Wisconsin - Bo Ryan always seems to come up short in these situations, but this year, his team has way more offensive firepower than he's had in the past.
