Most bettors saw their matchup to start the tournament against the Volunteers and went all-in against the 12th-seeded Beavers. Analysts and bettors alike were quickly shocked when they decimated Tennessee, 70-56.

Both of these teams are easy to root for, considering they've both been underdogs up to this point. What's most important, though, is how to bet on this game.
Should you go with the red-hot Ramblers? Or could the Beavers pull off another big upset on Saturday, covering the spread and moving forward in the tournament? Before we move on, did you see our last article about Selection Sunday?
Beavers prepare to shock the world
At first glance, the Beavers don't look like anything special. They didn't have a great record during the regular season.
Their leading scorer averages only a little over 15 points per game. Last but not least, they finished sixth in the Pac-12 in the regular season.
However, with all those knocks against them, they've been able to upset two top teams in college basketball.
The Beavers have been able to win these games by playing good defense and moving the ball well around the court. They allowed Tennessee to score only 56 points when the Volunteers usually average 71.9 per game.
By repeating this formula, they were able to beat Oklahoma State and now have a chance to do it again.

Ready to roll over Beavers
Loyola Chicago comes into Saturday's game as the favored team, something it is definitely not used to. The Ramblers have pulled off their fair share of upsets, including knocking off top-seeded Illinois last weekend.
They'll be fighting to not become another notch on the Beavers belt. The good news for the Ramblers is they know exactly what to expect when facing Oregon State.
They'll have to find a way to contend with strong defense and heavy pressure. At the same time, they need to create opportunities at the perimeter for their shooters.
Loyola Chicago shoots at 50.3% from the field and just over 37% from the three-point line. Look for Loyola to spread the ball out and stretch the Beavers defense on Saturday.
Analysis And Pick
Oregon State comes into Saturday's game holding its future in its hands, and it hasn't let anyone down yet. To be fair, I believe Loyola Chicago will win the game, but Oregon State should be able to keep it close.
Both teams are 5-0 ATS in their last five games, making it a tough one to call. However, with the Beavers' recent performance against solid contenders, the smart money is on Oregon State.

Look for the Beavers to keep this one just close enough to cover.
