Mount St. Mary's beats New Orleans 67-66 in the first game of the NCAA tournament (a No. 16 seed play-in game in Dayton, Ohio) to earn the right to face East No. 1 seed Villanova on Thursday. The ViewFromVegas is the Mountaineers did it as 1-point underdogs and the game went over the betting total of 131.5. We'll have a file with the betting results (like this) of every NCAA tournament game at ESPN.com/chalk starting Thursday and keep track of how favorites/underdogs and over/unders are faring all the way through the championship game.

Austin Ward ESPN Staff Writer 

Even without its best effort, Mount St. Mary's had just enough to edge New Orleans and advance from the First Four at UD Arena in a thriller that came down to the final possession. Leading scorer Elijah Long didn't get on the scoreboard for more than 30 minutes for the Mountaineers and finished with just 6 points, and he'll obviously have to be much better with Villanova looming on Thursday night in Buffalo.
