Sweet 16 odds: Wisconsin vs Baylor betting, Arizona vs San Diego State

No. 2 seeds usually beat No. 6 seeds, which is bad news for Baylor fans. But 6-seeds usually cover the spread. Baylor vs Wisconsin and Arizona vs San Diego State highlight West Region Sweet 16 odds.

Nine times since 2002, a No. 2 seed has faced a 6-seed in the NCAA tournament.

Eight times, the higher seed won. Seven times, the lower seed covered the spread.

Second-seeded Wisconsin will try to keep that winning trend going against 6-seed Baylor as a 3-point favorite.

Later in the evening, the 1-seed Arizona Wildcats are a 6.5-point favorite squaring off against the 4-seed San Diego State Aztecs.

Last year, three games featured a 1 vs 4 matchup and the No. 4 seeds won twice, giving hope to Aztec bettors here.

Wisconsin improved to 2-0 SU and ATS in the 2014 NCAA Tournament with an 85-77 win and cover against the Oregon Ducks as a 6-point favorite. The Badgers are just 1-4 SU in their last five trips to the Sweet 16, but are 7-2 ATS in their last nine tournament appearances overall.

The total has gone OVER in five of Wisconsin's last six games.
