COLUMBUS, Ohio — The Basketball Tournament (TBT) will crown a new champion Tuesday as the No. 4 seed Golden Eagles take on the No. 22 seed Sideline Cancer with a $1 million prize on the line.
For the Golden Eagles, this offers a chance at redemption as they were last year’s TBT runner-up.
Sideline Cancer stunningly made the final as Maurice Creek sunk a game-winning three to send the No. 2 seed Overseas Elite (a team that featured former NBA player Joe Johnson) home.

Sideline Cancer vs. Golden Eagles – 7 p.m. ET
- Sideline Cancer (+155)
- Golden Eagles (-230)
The Golden Eagles are a team filled with former Marquette University basketball alumni and they’re favored to beat Sideline Cancer by five points tonight at USAOnlineSportsbooks.
Expect former NBA second-round draft pick Darius Johnson-Odom to be one of the best players on the court tonight as he’ll have to be aggressive on offense and attack the stingy defense of Sideline Cancer who have surrendered the second-fewest points (67.5) to opposing team’s this tournament.
If Johnson-Odom has a big game, it’ll force Sideline Cancer to focus more on him which will open up shots for his teammates.
Those looking to bet straight up on the championship game should consider taking the +155 money line odds on Sideline Cancer to pull off the upset over the Golden Eagles.
Sideline Cancer is worthy of an underdog bet as they’ve been riding the star power of former Indiana Hoosier Maurice Creek and former Central Michigan standout Markus Keene, who both have been putting on some clutch performances this tournament.
Those who love a good underdog can find comfort in betting on Sideline Cancer to win the tournament tonight.

Both Sideline Cancer and the Golden Eagles are two of the top-performing defenses in TBT.
Expecting this game to be a shootout will lead to nothing but disappointment, so bettors should take the Under, as 150.5 points being scored in the championship is unlikely. The Golden Eagles are an experienced TBT team and that should show early on as both teams will struggle to find offense.
The TBT Championship game between the Golden Eagles and Sideline Cancer will begin at 7 p.m. EST and be broadcasted by ESPN.
