Money coming in on two of the later NCAA Men's College Basketball Tournament games had leveled off.


The Buffalo Bulls vs. Texas Tech Red Raiders game featured a line of Red Raiders -3.5.  Action was balanced heading into the early afternoon hours Sunday.  The line has been bouncing back and forth between the -3.5 and -4.

An elite defense clashes with a potent offense Sunday when No. 3 seed Texas Tech meets sixth-seeded Buffalo in the second round of the NCAA Tournament at Tulsa, Okla. The Red Raiders shook off a slow start before ousting Northern Kentucky 72-57 on Thursday in the first round of the West Region, holding the Norse more than 22 points below their season average, while Buffalo routed Arizona State and its former coach Bobby Hurley 91-74.

The Liberty vs. Virginia Tech game featured a line of Hokies -8.5.  The line here has moved down from -9 to -8.5.

Liberty rallied for its first NCAA Tournament win in school history Friday around the same time that Virginia Tech was notching its first victory in the event in 12 years. The 12th-seeded Flames will try to put together a Cinderella run all the way to the Sweet 16 when they take on the fourth-seeded Hokies on Saturday in the second round of the East Region in San Jose, Calif.
