Syracuse vs. Oklahoma odds featured a line of Oklahoma -1, but it was the Orangemen who were getting the most action of any NCAA Tournament game Friday.

The Syracuse Orangemen NCAA Tournament odds to win the 2009 Championship were listed at +2500 for a payout potential of $2500 with every $100 bet at SBG Global.  Receive up to an amazing 295 percent in cash bonuses at SBG Global by signing up here.

Syracuse clinched a spot in the Sweet 16 for the first time in the last five seasons, improving to 50-31 all-time in the NCAA tourney along the way.

Orange coach Jim Boeheim moved just one win away from his 800th career victory.

With 21 points, Eric Devendorf has now scored 20-plus in four of his last five games.

Syracuse beat Arizona State for the first time in school history, though the two schools have only met once before. The only other meeting was at the 1968 Far West Classic in Portland.

Syracuse's reward is to move on and play Blake Griffin and second-seeded Oklahoma (29-5) in Memphis on Friday, a spot in the regional final against either North Carolina or Gonzaga at stake for the winner.

Some reward, said Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim, who got the 799th win of his career and moved into a tie with former Louisville coach Denny Crum for seventh in all-time NCAA tournament coaching wins with 42.

"We're going to play the team that would be the No. 1 seed in this tournament if it weren't for Griffin getting injured," Boeheim said. "If he hadn't gotten hurt, they'd be the No. 1 seed. That's enough to worry about."

Thursday's games featured a few stunners, though both number one seeds that played (UConn and Pittsburgh) remain in the tournament.  Among the shocks, however, was number two-seeded Memphis being beaten by number three Missouri.

Missouri jumped on Memphis early, moving within a win of its first Final Four. Only Boston College has more tournament wins without a Final Four appearance.

Memphis allowed 100 points for the first time in the John Calipari era.

"We kind of got punched in the mouth right from the beginning of the game," Memphis coach John Calipari said. "They broke us down defensively like we break people down. They beat us at our own game."

Missouri would pay $3500 for every $100 bet if they were to win the 2009 NCAA Tournament. 

Villanova also beat Duke and would pay $2000 for every $100 bet at SBG Global if they were to go on and win the 2009 NCAA Championship.
