We are mere hours away from tipoff between the No. 7 seed Florida Gators and No. 15 seed Oral Roberts Golden Eagles in the 2021 NCAA Tournament’s second round on Sunday night. As game time nears, the oddsmakers are busy making their final adjustments to their figures.
Florida has held a solid grip odds-wise since the betting lines opened and continues to hold its favorite status, though the bookies are having some second thoughts about some of their decisions. While we await the final status of Omar Payne and Tyree Appleby, here is the latest verdict.
BetMGM inched the Gators up a half-point to an 8.5-point favorite from yesterday’s line this morning but that has held steady since, while the over/under jumped up a point to 149.5 points as of 5 p.m. EDT before the game.
Tipoff is scheduled for 7:45 p.m. EDT on Sunday inside the Indiana Farmers Coliseum, Indianapolis, Indiana. The second-round game will be broadcast by truTV, livestreamed on the NCAA March Madness Live app and can be heard on the Gators Sports Network.
