The 2021 NCAA men’s basketball tournament field has been more than cut in half, with only 16 teams remaining from the original 68. Here we will look at Sweet 16 odds and the Sweet 16 schedule.
Tournament darling Loyola Chicago, which knocked off 1-seed Illinois this past Sunday, is actually favored in its Sweet 16 game by a sizable margin despite its usual underdog status. The sons of Sister Jean are favorites over Oregon State.
The largest Sweet 16 spread is for the Gonzaga versus Creighton game, with the Zags favored by points.
