NCAAW March Madness: #9 Marquette vs. #8 South Florida (-2) Prediction

What a tremendous season we’ve had so far and it’s only going to get better from here. We are currently up 41.42 units this season (141-102-1) in women’s basketball and had a fairly solid showing throughout the conference tournaments.

Now we get focused for the best stretch in all of sports: March Madness.

Note: We’ll be betting a small amount on every underdog this tournament and tracking it on Twitter (@WhoopinBets). 

Underdogs ML: (0-2, -2u) 

March Madness YTD: 1-1 (-0.15)


South Florida made us some money this season, so it’s tough not to have a soft spot for them. The Bulls, however, did get upset in the AAC quarterfinals and lost to No. 8-seed Wichita State as the top seed. So, how will they respond? Marquette has a Top 35 defense and will try and slow down a USF team that ranks 67th in points per game at 71 per game. If you look at the Bulls’ losses, you’ll see that they were in pretty much every game expect that 72-50 loss to Villanova in late November. They lost their other five games by an average of 5.8 points per contest. I worry about how the Golden Eagles offense that ranks middle of the pack will handle USF’s strong defense, so I like the Bulls in this one.

BEST BET: South Florida -2 (-115)
