When: March 24 - 25, 2018
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?
Teams must win their first three games of the tournament in order to reach the Elite 8 and once the NCAA Tournament has narrowed the Sweet 16 teams in half, the best of the best, will suit up for the regional finals on Saturday, March 24 & Sunday, March 25, that begins West and Midwest regions getting the spotlight and then the South and East regions on the following day, 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. Day one gets the ball rolling with the West and South regions, giving the spotlight to the Midwest and East regions the following day.
The 2018 Elite Eight games are played in the same locations of the preceding Sweet 16 matchups at STAPLES Center in Los Angeles, California (West), Philips Arena in Atlanta, Georgia (South), CenturyLink Center Omaha in Omaha, Nebraska (Midwest) and TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts (East).
Saturday, March 24 - Elite Eight
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.
The opening weekend of the NCAA Tournaments are always pure mayhem; games begin and end simultaneously, buzzers sound from TV’s, and computers, celebrations are loud. And of course, defeat is inevitable for more than three-quarters of the field.
While favorites rule the opening weekend of the tournament, history indicates that underdogs will dominate the Elite 8 and now, with just one game separating teams from the Final Four.
For the last remaining 8 teams in College basketball, the stakes are at a all-time high, because after these 4 games, the tournament will be down to the Final Four.
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.
