March Madness is here. That means the action on the college hardwood is currently at a fever pitch, and it’s only going to get better as we get closer to the National Championship Game. Here’s a look at what is coming up this week in the NCAA Tournament with the Sweet Sixteen and the Elite Eight, plus the quarterfinals of the NIT.
Penn State at Marquette, 7 p.m. (ESPN)
Preview: There have been some major upsets in the NCAA Tournament that overshadowed the Penn State Nittany Lions’ victory over No. 1 seed Notre Dame in the NIT. Many felt the Irish should have been dancing. Instead they were the top overall seed in the NIT field and now they’re enjoying the offseason after Penn State went to South Bend and pulled of a shocker. The Lions advanced to a quarterfinal matchup with the Big East’s Marquette Golden Eagles. Continue...
Mississippi State at Louisville, 9 p.m. (ESPN)
Preview: Mississippi State Bulldogs coach Ben Howland has a history of winning and he’s at it again, taking a team that won 14 games just two seasons ago into the quarterfinals of the NIT. There was some disappointment that MSU didn’t reach the dance, but Howland knows that any postseason trip is vital for his program. There is one more obstacle between them and a trip to New York and that’s the Louisville Cardinals, who also felt snubbed on Selection Sunday and are looking to further distance themselves from the scandalous Rick Pitino era. Continue...
Western Kentucky vs. Oklahoma State, 8 p.m. (ESPN2)
Preview: Put another feather in the cap of the little guy. The Western Kentucky Hilltoppers upset the region’s No. 1 seed and advanced to the quarterfinals of the NIT with a 79-75 win over USC, giving the power conference another black eye in what has turned out to be a miserable postseason for the Pac-12’s basketball schools. To earn a trip to New York, WKU must win on the road against the Oklahoma State Cowboys, a team that knocked off Kansas twice during the regular season. Continue...
Utah vs. Saint Mary’s, 10 p.m. (ESPN2)
Preview: The Pac-12 flamed out in the NCAA Tournament and the conference is doing the same in the NIT. Five league members were invited to the NIT and while they all won their opener, it was the Utah Utes that advanced into the quarterfinal round of the tournament. The Utes will carry the torch for the once-mighty league into a matchup with the Saint Mary’s Gaels, who have shaken off the disappointment of not getting into the NCAA’s by setting a program record for wins. Continue...
The NIT will get down to their Final Four teams this week, with two games on Tuesday, March 20 and two games on Wednesday, March 21. The four winning teams will meet next week in the NIT Semifinals at Madison Square Garden in New York.
No. 7 Nevada vs. No. 11 Loyola (Chicago), 7:07 p.m., CBS
Preview: The first matchup in the Sweet Sixteen is an unexpected one, as the No. 11 Loyola Ramblers take on the No. 7 Nevada Wolf Pack on Thursday in the South region in a game that can be seen on CBS. All four of the top seeds in the region are gone, so the winner of this game will have a real chance to make the Final Four. The Wolf Pack are listed as 2-point favorites, with the total at 143.5. Let’s look at this matchup and Sweet Sixteen picks. Continue...
No. 3 Michigan vs. No. 7 Texas A&M, 7:37 p.m., TBS
Preview: Gamblers are all over the Michigan Wolverines due to their status as one of the hottest teams on the college basketball betting board. Michigan has transformed itself from a program that usually emphasizes offense into a team that relies on stout defense for their success in 2018. Not much was expected from the Texas A&M Aggies in the NCAA tournament this year. As a middle of the road Big 12 team without any real identity the Aggies have been overlooked. But a blowout cover against defending national champion North Carolina has dramatically changed perceptions. Michigan and Texas A&M meet on Thursday. Continue...
No. 5 Kentucky vs. No. 9 Kansas State, 9:37 p.m., CBS
Preview: Everything seems to be falling into place for the Kentucky Wildcats to make the Final Four, as all four of the top seeds in the South Region are gone. The No. 5 Kentucky Wildcats are favored to get past the No. 9 Kansas State Wildcats on Friday night on CBS in the Sweet Sixteen. Kansas State got past Creighton and UMBC to get to this point, while Kentucky beat Davidson and Buffalo. Let’s look at this matchup and Sweet Sixteen picks. Continue...
No. 4 Gonzaga vs. No. 9 Florida State, 9:59 p.m., TBS
Preview: Gonzaga is a program that has been transformed from a loveable cuddly underdog that would score huge March Madness betting upsets into a monster national power capable of winning it all. Coming off a loss in the national championship game last year the Zags are aching to return to the Final Four for what they say is unfinished business. Florida State is often overlooked in an Atlantic Coast Conference that is celebrated as the best in college basketball. The Seminoles are now a surprise Sweet Sixteen team that has caught many off guard. Florida State meets Gonzaga on Thursday. Continue...
No. 1 Kansas vs. No. 5 Clemson, 7:07 p.m., CBS
Preview: Faced with some concerns about their roster, the Kansas Jayhawks continue rolling along right into the Sweet 16. And they could become more of a force with the return of Udoka Azubuike, who Bill Self called the team’s most valuable player in a second-round win over Seton Hall. In keeping up with their football program, the Clemson Tigers advanced to the Sweet 16 for the first time in 21 years by pounding SEC regular season co-champ Auburn in the second round. The two meet with an Elite Eight spot up for grabs. Continue...
No. 1 Villanova vs. No. 5 West Virginia, 7:27 p.m., TBS
Preview: It should be a high scoring game on Friday night, as the No. 5 West Virginia Mountaineers go up against the No. 1 Villanova Wildcats in the East Region of the Sweet Sixteen on TBS. The Mountaineers average just over 80 points per game, while the Wildcats are the highest scoring team in the country, averaging just over 87 points per contest. The Wildcats are listed as 5.5-point favorites, with the total at 153. Let’s look at this matchup and Sweet Sixteen picks. Continue...
No. 2 Duke vs. No. 11 Syracuse, 9:37 p.m., CBS
Preview: March Madness is certainly living up to its name and the Syracuse Orange have been a huge part of the chaos. The last team into the NCAA Tournament is still standing after knocking off No. 3 seed Michigan State and will battle the Duke Blue Devils in an all ACC Sweet 16 matchup. Syracuse finished five games worse than Duke in the ACC standings and lost the only matchup between the teams this season. However, that means nothing now, since the Orange weren’t even supposed to be here. Continue...
No. 2 Purdue vs. No. 3 Texas Tech, 9:57 p.m., TBS
Preview: One of the most competitive games in the Sweet Sixteen is expected to be the game between the No. 3 Texas Tech Red Raiders and the No. 2 Purdue Boilermakers on Friday in the East Region. This game takes place at TD Garden in Boston and will be the final one of the Sweet Sixteen. These are two very good defensive clubs, as Texas Tech gave up just over 64 points per game during the regular season, good for 15th in the country, while the Boilermakers allowed just 65 points per game, 24th in the nation. Let’s look at Friday’s game and Sweet Sixteen picks. Continue...
The 2018 Sweet Sixteen only has two No. 1 seeds remaining in Villanova and Kansas. The first two rounds of the NCAA Tournament saw the overall No. 1 seed Virginia become the first No. 1 seed in history to lose to a No. 16 seed and it wasn’t close, as they were routed by UMBC. The other No. 1 seed that lost was Xavier, as they were beaten in the second round by Florida State. No. 2 seeds also had trouble in the second round, as Cincinnati and North Carolina were beaten. The South and West Regions are wide open with the No. 1 and No. 2 seeds in both regions gone, but in the East and the Midwest, the top four seeds remain in Villanova, Kansas, Purdue and Duke.
Saturday, March 24 - Elite Eight (Teams TBD)
Preview: With West region favorite Gonzaga bowing out in the Sweet 16, the Michigan Wolverines are now the odds on favorites to cut the nets down in Los Angeles. John Beilein’s squad looked to be a whole lot different in their tilt against Texas A&M on Thursday night with the offenses dropping 99 points on the Aggies’ heads. The Seminoles have only given up a tick over 61 points per game in March Madness betting, so the right to head to the Final Four could be decided by both squads defenses. Continue...
Sunday, March 25 - Elite Eight
Texas Tech vs. Villanova
Preview: The Texas Tech Red Raiders dominated Purdue on Friday night to punch the program’s first ever ticket to the Elite 8. They’re reward, the East Region No. 1 seed that just so happens to be the favorite to cut down the nets on April 2 when the 2018 NCAA tournament comes to a close. A tough chore no doubt, but it’s one Chris Beard will no doubt have his overlooked Red Raiders ready for. It won’t be easy though with the Wildcats getting the extra advantage of playing extremely close to home. Continue...
If the seeds hold in the East and Midwest Regions, we would get two huge Elite matchups, with Villanova taking on Purdue, while Kansas goes against Duke. The Elite Eight matchups in the South and West will not have as much star power, but it is still possible we could get Kentucky in an Elite Eight matchup in the South and it could be Gonzaga against Michigan in the West.
Basketball betting Odds Information: The Odds on a basketball game are used to indicate - for betting purposes or for interest - the odds makers' opinions as to the probable outcome of the match.
The point spread - also called "the line" or "the spread" - is used in football and basketball as a margin to handicap the favorite team. For betting purposes, the oddsmaker predicts that the favored team will win by a certain number of points.
This number of points is the point spread. The favorite is always indicated by a minus sign ( e.g. -5.5 ) and the underdog by a plus sign ( e.g.+5.5, or simply 5.5 ).
If you bet on the favorite, you win your bet if the favorite wins and their margin of victory is greater than the point spread.
If you bet on the underdog, you win if the underdog wins, ties, or if the favored team wins but fails to exceed the point spread.
With point spread bets, you must generally wager $110 to win $100.
Betting on a point spread or money line is sometimes called betting "sides" - that is, betting that one side or the other will be the winner - while betting the over/under is referred to as betting "totals".
The over/under is the number of points odds makers expect will be the total score for the contest ( both teams combined, overtime included ).
You bet on whether the total points scored will be more or less than this number.
know your teams: This includes player transfers, stats, coaching staff and the basketball schedules. It is good to know when your team is playing at home or on the road.
Home court advantage is always good thing to have. Keep track of team injuries.
Team Motivation: Be aware of the importance of a game to team members. When A team has already qualified for the final, the coach will most likely play his starters or the team may not be motivated to win the present game. Where as other teams facing a must-win situation will be highly motivated to win.
Be selective: Do not bet with your heart - Avoid Betting on your favorite team ( unless they are the reigning champions ), Bet only on matches that you consider a value bet.
