NCAA Elite Eight Basketball Odds & Predictions
March Madness Elite Eight Odds - 2017 NCAA Elite Eight Basketball Predictions
When: March 24 - 26, 2017
The Elite 8 has been settled, and the NCAA Tournament field will be narrowed down to just four teams by the end of the weekend. Which team has the best shot at winning it all?
Once the 2017 NCAA Tournament has whittled the Sweet 16 teams in half, the remaining 8 teams will suit up for the regional finals on Saturday, March 24th, that begins with the West and Midwest regions giving the spotlight to the South and East regions on Sunday March 26th, with two days of crazy basketball betting action.
The "Elite Eight" is a term used to refer to the final eight teams in the Division I NCAA basketball tournament and the third-to-last round of the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournaments.
There's something special about saying you made it to the Final Four. Just getting there is the honor of all honors and is what gives you the ability to cut down nets and hang a banner in your gym for the rest of eternity. Perhaps the sickest feeling in the world is to get so close to the Final Four that you can taste it. But for four of the eight teams who advance to the second weekend of March Madness, that is the fate that will befell them.
History will tell you that the teams coming from the top half of the bracket are much more likely to make the Final Four than the teams coming from the bottom of the bracket. #2 seeds, for example, are just 28-32 all-time in the Elite Eight, while #3 seeds are 14-17. Meanwhile, #1 seeds are 52-37, #4s are 13-7, #5s are 6-2 and #8s are 5-3.
Last year, Syracuse became the third #11 seed to win in the Elite Eight. Ironically, there are more #11s to advance to the Final Four (3) than #8s, #9s and #10s combined (2). In the end though, there has only been one example of all four #1 seeds reaching the Final Four, and that means there's probably an upset or two coming somewhere along the way.
NCAA Tournament Elite 8, Midwest Regional, Saturday, March 25, 2017
Oregon Ducks vs. Kansas Jayhawks, Sprint Center
Opening Line: Check Back Later
Preview: The Kansas Jayhawks are off to the Elite 8 for the seventh time under head coach Bill Self. They got there by taking Purdue out behind the woodshed in the second half and administering a beat down for the Sweet 16 ages. The Oregon Ducks have reached their seventh Elite 8 in a much different fashion, and now have to face what just might be their toughest test of the season in Kansas City against the Midwest Region’s top seed.

NCAA Tournament Elite 8, West Regional, Saturday, March 25, 2017
Xavier Musketeers vs. Gonzaga Bulldogs, SAP Center
Opening Line: Check Back Later
Preview: The No. 1 Gonzaga Bulldogs are on the verge of going to the Final Four for the first time in program history after sneaking by West Virginia in the West Region semifinals. All that stands in their way is a pesky No. 11 seed in the form of the Xavier Musketeers who just avenged a Sweet 16 loss to Arizona a couple season’s back by battling back from an eight point deficit with 3+ minutes remaining to shock the region’s No. 2 seed. This has the makings of another thriller that should go down to the wire. Continue...

These teams are well aware of what the other will try to do, so the first to flinch just might end up being the one sent home. Continue...

Elite 8 betting Tips:
You want to remember when wagering against the Elite 8 betting line that you have games on Saturday and Sunday so you don’t have to risk everything on Saturday’s games.
Show some patience and manage your bankroll and stay alive for not only Elite 8 betting line odds but the Final Four the following week
Elite 8 betting odds will show four games which means you can wager on both sides and totals. This gives you eight chances to make money and that doesn’t include parlays and teasers.
Sound money management is important if you want to win money versus the Elite 8 betting line.
Look at statistics like turnovers, defensive numbers, rebounding, etc. Good teams that win in Elite 8 betting lines avoid turnovers and play solid defense.
In the early rounds there will be teams that can get away with playing below average and still advance. That doesn’t happen much in Elite Eight March Madness odds. When it gets to Elite 8 betting lines the fat has really been cut from the tournament.
The best teams have traditionally advanced in this round to the Final Four. Rarely does the Cinderella team make it into the Final Four. That means you want to really look at power in terms of Elite Eight March Madness odds.
Another factor to keep in mind when betting Elite 8 odds is free throw shooting. The games are likely to be close and you really don’t want to be betting on a team that can’t shoot free throws.
Even if they are the superior team they oftentimes will give a game away because they can’t hit from the charity stripe.
