March Madness continues this weekend with the Elite Eight (quarter-finals).

The Final Four will be left standing after this latest round of games and our tips on who will advance are provided by expert basketball analysts and tipsters.

March Madness Tips for March 30


Houston vs Oregon State


Houston can book their place in the Final Four on Monday night.

The Cougars have made relatively smooth progress to the Elite Eight, rolliing over Syracuse last time out.

Oregon State, meanwhile, have dumped out Oklahoma State and Illinois’ conquerors, Loyola-Chicago. 

That run is likely to end here, but that strong defense could help them cover in a close game.


March Madness Tips for March 31


Gonzaga vs USC


Gonzaga have torn through the opposition so far. That may change here.

The Bulldogs are rightfully the favourites, but USC have the defensive prowess to make a game of this.

They lead the nation in blocks and are one of the top rebounders. They also do a great job at limiting three-point opportunities.

That can keep USC in this and help them cover, but their sloppiness in possession could be their undoing.

US

Verdict

Oregon State’s defense is tough but Houston’s is better and should ensure they win a low-scoring game.

USC defend well inside and outside the perimeter and that should ensure they at least cover in a losing effort against Gonzaga.

Best Bet: Houston -4.5 & -136.5 Spread & Total Points @105.00 at BetMGM - 1 Unit
Best Bet: USC +9.0 Spread @-111.11 at Caesars (Sport) - 1 Unit
