NCAA Tournament Oregon Ducks vs Iona Gaels Start Time, Betting Odds

The Oregon Ducks are playing the Iona Gaels in the NCAA Tournament on Friday. The game is scheduled for a 2:00 p.m. start time and it will be televised nationally on TBS. The college basketball odds for the game have the Ducks favored by a comfortable margin here to claim the victory.

College Basketball Odds
Oregon -14.5
Total: 152 points

Oregon is playing without Chris Boucher in the middle here, which is a bad blow for a Ducks team that was good enough to win the entire tournament if they were healthy. Boucher busted up his knee in the Pac 12 Tournament and is going to miss the remainder of the season which obviously changed where Oregon ended up being seeded and their potential to make a Final Four run.

The Ducks still have a wealth of talent on the roster, led by Dillon Brooks and Tyler Dorsey. The Ducks have balanced scoring, a solid defense and they should be able to win this contest, even if they do come in a  little rusty. 

Iona seems to always have a team that can score a ton of points and this year is no different. The Gaels pour in better than 80 points per game and they like to speed it up and run the floor. Jordan Washington leads the Gaels in scoring at 18 points a game, he’s also the team’s leading rebounder and he will look to have a big impact especially that Boucher is out of the lineup for the Ducks.

Iona might be able to keep it within 15 points, especially with how they score in chunks. The total here indicates there could be a bunch of points scored by somebody.
