It was a remarkable day of basketball, despite having only two (or three, maybe) actual late winners. But if you are rooting with your wallet as well as with your heart, well, there are buzzer-beaters all around you.

In overtime (about a minute after doing this, which, holy shit), D'Angelo Russell made two free throws to give Ohio State a 75-70 lead with four seconds left. Game over, right? Then VCU's Jonathan Williams drove the length of the court for a layup to cut the Buckeyes' margin of victory to three points. The spread? Depending on where you got it, either 3.5 or 4.

At least once in your life, if you can swing it, you should try to make it to a Las Vegas sportsbook for the opening rounds of the tourney. There's no place quite like it—thankfully.
