March Madness 2021: Women’s Elite 8 (Day 2)

Not me letting my bracket getting busted making me forget who I picked….oh wait. I did just that. I had Baylor beating UConn in my bracket, but picked UConn in the article yesterday. I believe that is a Split Decision. Anyway, let’s take a look at the final night of the Elite 8 on the women’s side.

Texas vs. South Carolina

Texas is coming off a fantastic game against Maryland. They did everything well and Maryland could not buy a 3 point shot. They are playing very well and are led by seniorns Kyra Lambert and Junior Charli Collier who are peaking at the right time. Unfortunately for the Longhorns, the side of the bracket they are on means, in order to win the title, they must run the gauntlet of Maryland, South Carolina, Louisville/Stanford, and in all likelihood, UConn. If they can play as well as the did against Maryland and have a little bit of luck, it is possible.

The Gamecocks enter as -13.5 favorties and they look poised for another title run. Maryland’s issue against Texas was being shell-shocked by the end of the game and not being able to make a 3 point shot. As long as they do not have mental lapses and beat themselves, South Carolina should not have any issue in moving on the Final Four this evening. Texas is a good basketball team, but South Carolina is on another level. Carolina to win and cover.

Louisville vs. Stanford

The final Elite 8 game will not disappoint. The overall #1 seed Stanford enters as -10.5 favorites and rightfully so. They have not had an issue up to this point. Louisville is one of the better teams in the country, but in big games, as we have discussed before, they have stumbled at times this year. I expect Louisville to keep it close in the first half, but the Cardinal will pull away in the second. Stanford has a rebounding edge and I do believe that they will do enough to get past a tough Louisville team. Stanford wins, and I will leave the spread for you to decide.

Tonight we will see a fantastic Final Four set for the women. Arizona is making the first ever appearance and has a chance to take out a team making their 13th straight appearance. Texas could make their first Final Four since 2003, and Louisville or Stanford will make yet another appearance. The madness has been crazy and there is still more to come!

Good luck with your bets tonight and enjoy!
