The 2019 NCAA Tournament begins on Tuesday, March 19 with First Four action in Dayton, Ohio. There are two games on Tuesday and two games on Wednesday, March 20. The main action in March Madness begins on Thursday, March 21 with 16 games and continues on Friday, March 22 with 16 more games.
When you look to fill out your March Madness bracket you should be picking one of the top seeds to win the title. If you look at the BPI Rankings, Virginia and Villanova are given the best chance of winning the title. There are five teams in the BPI rankings that are given at least a 10% chance of winning the title. Those five teams are Virginia, Villanova, Duke, Purdue and Cincinnati. No other team is given much of a chance if you look strictly at the percentages. That means some popular teams like Michigan, Michigan State and Kansas may not be good teams to pick in March Madness.
If you are looking for longshots to win the title then Purdue and Cincinnati are the top choices. Both are No. 2 seeds and each team is listed at odds of +1500 and +2000 respectively. If you want to get a little more value, then take a look at last year’s runner-up Gonzaga. They are listed with odds of +2500. They play in the West region where they are likely to face Xavier, thought by many people to be the most vulnerable No. 1 seed.
History has shown that teams seeded from No. 5 to No. 16 have very little chance to win the NCAA Tournament, so you may want to avoid picking a huge longshot to win the title. That does not mean those teams can’t pull off upsets along the way, but winning it all is too much to ask.
