In college basketball there are a lot of teams, and some are much stronger than others. The difference is the bettors has to predict whether or not a team will win by the margin listed on the NCAA Basketball odds boards.
With the minus sign in front, that means they have to win by nine points or more to cover the spread and for you to win your bet on Duke. If they win by eight or less, or their opponent wins, then Duke does not cover the spread. While spreads focus on the margin of victory, moneylines only focus on the outright result.
All you care about is who wins the game. For example, Duke might be a favorite over North Carolina State. Junior Justin Robinson led the Hokies with 19 points and all players with seven assists. Alabama moves on to a second-round matchup with top-seeded Villanova. Well, that was a pretty decent second half for Rob Gray. The rest of the sixth-ranked Cougars combined to hit just 10 of 34 shots from the field, but Gray would not let them lose to an Aztecs squad that repeatedly rallied from sizable deficits.
Houston advances on Rob Gray's bucket with 1. Since seeding began in , Houston had only been involved in one NCAA Tournament game where the winning points were scored in the final 10 seconds - the championship game loss to NC State.

Kentucky beat Davidson without hitting a 3-pointer. Next up for Villanova? The winner of 8-seed Virginia Tech vs. The Lumberjacks shook it off and took a lead into halftime.
That would be a nope. The Lumberjacks close the half in style! Seton Hall scored the first basket of the game, took a solid lead a few minutes later and mostly held N.
The ninth-seeded Wolfpack pulled close on several occasions but was never able to get over the hump in a first-round matchup in the Midwest region. Seton Hall won the game at the line, hitting 31 of 39 free throws, including seven in the final 1: State went 16 for 27 from the line.
Seton Hall also improved to all-time against the Wolfpack. If you are anything other than proud of this Wolfpack team, you're missing the point. This was not a team expected to even be here and fought their hearts out multiple times against an experienced Seton Hall team. Not the way WPN wanted it to end, but hell of a season. Ohio State uses four-point play to hold off South Dakota State.
Ohio State was viewed as an overachieving team all season, and it again defied at least a few expectations Thursday by defeating South Dakota State, , in a first-round matchup in the West region. Thursday marked the fifth time since that SDSU had made the tournament, but it is still in search of its first win.
Under first-year coach Chris Holtmann, Ohio State had a surprisingly successful season, finishing second in the Big 10 during the regular season and returning to the tournament for the first time since Ingram buried the triple with three-tenths of a second to play, not enough time for Miami to answer.
Ben Richardson grabbed the rebound for Loyola and the Ramblers were off. Four Loyola players scored in double figures, including 14 points from guard Clayton Custer. If nothing else, we learn from our mistakes. The Wildcats are hot, and there's no reason to not give them their due.
