Low-scoring Round of 64 pleasing under bettors
Scoring is down early in this year’s NCAA Tournament. Really down.
Teams scored an average of 64.5 points per game in the second round – the lowest-scoring Round of 64 since the shot clock arrived in 1986, according to ESPN Stats and Info.
That resulted in a combined 13-19 over/under mark in the second round.
Here is an O/U breakdown by region:
Midwest 3-5 O/U
South 3-5 O/U
West 4-4 O/U
East 3-5 O/U
The under trend has been reversed so far in the Round of 32. Saturday's games went a combined 5-3 O/U.
