Pick: SDSU -5.5 (-110)

The final day of the second round of the NCAA tournament is underway, and these two mid majors will face off here on Sunday night to determine a place in the sweet 16. Yale is coming off of an upset in their opening round game against Auburn and San Diego State nearly found themselves going home early in the first round and they fought off an upset from 12 seeded UAB. Both of these teams have put together quality seasons and both of them will look to stay alive in the NCAA tournament as they look to advance to the second week of the tournament with a victory here on Sunday night. 

Yale became another team in a long line of Ivy League champions to pull off an opening round upset. Now they will look to book their place in the third round of the tournament as well. They put up a fantastic performance against Auburn in their opening game of the tournament and they will look to replicate that performance against last year’s national runner up here on Sunday night against San Diego State. They have put together a quality season and they come into this game with 23 victories through their first 32 games of the year. 

They used a mix of fantastic shooting and hard nose defense to pick up an upset victory over Auburn in the first round. They will need to take it to another level in this game against San Diego State as they have had one of the best defenses in the country and offenses in the country this season so it will certainly be no easy task for the Bulldogs here on Sunday. Yale scored 78 points, and they held off a rough last possession from Auburn to pick up the victory and they will need to put up just as many if not more points in this game if they want to be successful in the second round of the tournament.

San Diego State avoided an upset bid in their opening round game and they will look to bounce back and get a more comfortable victory this time around. After making it all the way to the national championship game last season, but falling short against Connecticut they will look to get back to the national title game and it starts with grabbing a victory here on Sunday night. They likely expected to play the Auburn Tigers in the second round but they will face off with Yale in this one. 

They will have to deal with the three-point shooting of the Bulldogs if they want to be successful and advance to the Sweet 16. San Diego State lockdown on defense towards the end of their game against UAB and they will need to replicate that performance throughout this game if they want to be successful and advance to the next round. This is a team that got the job done on both ends of the court last season, and they brought most of their big-time players back, and they will look to make the most of this run as well. They will need to be efficient on both ends of the court against a team like Yale that barely turns the basketball over throughout a game so opportunities will be few and far between to steal points.

Betting trends to consider in this matchup:

- SDSU is 21-5 as a favorite this season 

- Yale is 3-5 as an underdog this season

- SDSU is 12-2 outside of the MWC

I expect this game to be all San Diego State here on Sunday night as I look for the Aztecs to assert their dominance. After a slow start to the tournament, I expect a solid bounce back performance from last year’s national runner-up. As I look for them to dominate this game against Yale and advance to the sweet 16. Not only do I look for them to pick up a victory over the Ivy League champions. I also expect them to cover the spread in the process in this round of 32 matchup.
