March Madness continues this weekend with the Sweet 16 (round of 17).

Eight teams 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 28


Loyola-Chicago vs Oregon


There will be no letdown for Loyola-Chicago in the Sweet 16.

The Ramblers sent shockwaves through March Madness by beating Illinois in the second round.

Their defense was able to shut down Ayo Dosunmu as they knocked off the Fighting Illi.

That stifling defense should now lead them to victory in a low-scoring clash with Oregon State.


March Madness Tips for March 29


Gonzaga vs Creighton


Outright favourites Gonzaga should ease into the Elite Eight on Sunday.

The Bulldogs boast a perfect 28-0 record this season and have blown out the opposition in previous rounds.

The big reason for their form is their scoring prowess – Gonzaga have hit scored 85 or more in 24 of their 28 games.

They rank #1 in the nation with 91.2 points per game and #2 in total points - only 15 behind Iowa who have played three more games.

Creighton will not be able to keep pace, although they can contribute to a high-scoring total.

Verdict

That Loyola-Chicago defense can slow down just about any team and it should be the key to a low-scoring win over Oregon State.

Creighton, meanwhile, will not be able to keep pace with free-scoring Gonzaga who should cover in a high-scoring clash.
