Oregon vs Iowa Bet: 2021 March Madness Second-Round Pick. We’re onto the Second Round of the 2021 NCAA Tournament! The first eight games of the round yesterday did not disappoint, with half of the results being upsets.
Oregon advanced to the Second Round without even taking the court, as VCU had a COVID-19 issue, which ruled the game a no-contest. This means we haven’t seen Oregon play since March 12th, when they fell to Oregon State.
Meanwhile, Iowa looked sharp in their First Round matchup against the fiery Antelopes. Luka Garza seems to roll out of bed and score 20 points, at this point.
Will Oregon keep the trend of upsets in the Second Round rolling, or will Iowa continue their on-court dominance? What can we expect from Monday’s Oregon vs Iowa game?
Even if your bracket is already busted, you can still get in the game. Read all of our 2021 March Madness betting picks and 2021 NCAA Tournament predictions.

It’s tough to bet Oregon with any kind of confidence, after such a long break between games. This is why we could see the line continue to grow in Iowa’s favor ahead of tip-off.
However, this Ducks team is dangerous. They have the offense to compete with anyone, led by senior Eugene Omoruyi (16.7 PPG). Oregon can score in bunches, and they are among the best at doing so beyond the arc, hitting a ridiculous 37.9% of their three-point shots (No. 19 in Division I). While they have the 13th-ranked offense, according to KenPom, they are 62nd in defense.
The Hawkeyes have a similar issue. Iowa is ranked second in offense, but 60th in defense. Hell, they just let Grand Canyon score 74 points. However, the Ducks don’t appear to have an answer for Luka Garza, especially if he is hitting his threes (4-for-5 in First Round).
Look for Oregon to shake off any rust quickly and turn this game into a shootout.
