2-Ohio State vs. 15 Oral Roberts Pick: Oral Roberts +16.5
Game preview: Usually, you look at a 2/15 game and think blowout, which this game might end up. But Oral Roberts does two things well: shoot free throws, and hit three-pointers. Do you really want to be holding Ohio State -16.5 in this game, knowing that if it is anywhere less than a 20-point lead in the final minutes, a couple threes could tank your wager? Yeah, me neither.
