Pittsburgh (24-11, 14-6 ACC) can’t be ruled out in this tournament due to how efficient they are on offense. The Panthers averaged 75.6 PPG in the regular season, and better yet they are battle-tested coming into Sunday’s matchup, having advanced in the First Four and then upsetting No. 6 Iowa State in a convincing 59-41 win. Their true Achilles heel lies on the defensive end where their up-and-down play makes them very susceptible. The Panthers allowed an average of 70.1 PPG in the regular season.

Xavier (26-9, 15-5 Big East) boasts one of the best offenses in the country as the Musketeers score at a clip of 81.4 PPG. It helps when you have the likes of Souley Boum as your leading scorer, who averages 16.5 PPG on 45% shooting from the floor. Xavier as a team has five different players that averaged double-digit scoring in the regular season, which should give the Panthers their most formidable challenge yet through this tournament.

Xavier is a 5.5-point favorite at DraftKings Sportsbook. The point total sits at 153.5.
