2017 NCAA Tournament Field Projections and Predictions for March Madness
by Robert Ferringo - 1/16/2017
Football is all but over. College football is done. The NFL has just three games left in its campaign. And that means that bettors around the country, if they haven't already, are turning all of their attention to the hardwood. And while the NBA is technically more popular than college basketball, the sportsbooks know that the college kids are going to be paying the bills for the next two months.

Oklahoma vs. Villanova Free Final Four Picks for Best Props on the Board
by Chris Vasile - 4/2/2016
After five long and grueling days, the NCAA Tournament is set to resume with two very juicy Final Four matchups. I would go out on a limb and say three out of the four teams taking part were "expected" to make it to Houston, with the lone Cinderella team being Syracuse.

Syracuse vs. North Carolina Free Picks: Best Props on the Board
by Chris Vasile - 4/2/2016
The second Final Four game scheduled for Saturday is somewhat of an enigma to me. It pits the No.10 seeded Syracuse Orange against the current favorite to win the tournament, No.1-ranked North Carolina. These two teams have taken different paths to Houston, with the Orange relying on a great 2-3 zone defense and the Tar Heels outscoring teams.

Free NIT Championship Game Picks for George Washington vs. Valparaiso
by Chris Vasile - 3/31/2016
The NIT tournament is usually an afterthought for bettors when it comes to college basketball in March. While everyone gets caught up with the hoopla surrounding the NCAA Tournament, I believe the real value lies in betting on the NIT. In the NIT, teams are busting their butts to prove to the committee they should have been invited to the Big Dance.

Final Four Betting Trends and Expert Handicapping
by Trevor Whenham - 3/30/2016
The Final Four is just days away. As bettors our job right now is simple - we need to be looking for every possible edge that we can find to help us find the winning bets in the three remaining games on the college basketball calendar. This almost certainly isn't the Final Four that you had in your brackets before the tournament started, so we aren't working with a lot of preconceived notions about these matchups. To help us find that edge, then, let's look back at some recent Final Four betting trends for each of the remaining combatants:

2016 Final Four Predictions
by Trevor Whenham - 3/30/2016
We have made it to the end - or at least close enough. Over the last three weeks we have dissected the NCAA Tournament from every possible angle. Thousands and thousands of words later we were right about a bunch of things and, sadly, wrong about a bunch, too (I'm looking at you, Michigan State). All that is left now is to make six Final Four predictions - what we will see, what will impact the outcome of the games, who has the edge, and so on. Without further ado:

2016 Final Four Betting: Handicapping the Coaches
by Trevor Whenham - 3/30/2016
What stands out above all else every year when the Final Four is set is the importance of coaching in college basketball. Without exception, the field of coaches each year is deeply talented and wildly accomplished. That is, yet again, the case with the four coaches this year. You can see coaching mismatches in earlier rounds, but by this point things will be decided on the court, not in the coaches' rooms.

NCAA Tournament MOP Picks with other Props Odds and Predictions
by Dave Schwab - 3/30/2016
One of the most heavily-bet player props for this tournament is who will be named Most Outstanding Player (MOP). And now that the field has been reduced to just four teams, Bovada's current prop bet odds are a bit easier to navigate. While there are a number of worthy candidates on the list, I am looking for the one that offers the best value at their betting odds.

NIT Free Picks and Expert Betting Predictions: BYU vs. Valparaiso
by Chris Vasile - 3/29/2016
"When the cat is away, the mice will play." With the NCAA set to resume on Saturday, April 2, for the Final Four, you would think this five-day break would give bettors a time to regroup and re-examine their systems heading into the weekend. Wrong. There is no rest for the wicked, especially in March as the NIT Tournament has two semi-finals slated for Tuesday with some very good teams taking part.

Free NIT Betting Picks and Expert Predictions: George Washington vs. SDSU
by Chris Vasile - 3/29/2016
We are now one day closer to the NCAA Final Four. The buzz of the Elite 8 has worn off, and if you are looking for something to fill the void before the much-anticipated April 2 date then you are in luck. The NIT semi-final slate is scheduled to kick off tonight at the Mecca of Basketball, Madison Square Garden. I have already written about the first semi-final between BYU and Valparaiso, so let's take a look at the second.

Final Four Bracket Picks and Expert NCAA Tournament Predictions
by Trevor Whenham - 3/28/2016
What a mess this year's NCAA Tournament has been - at least from the perspective of my poor brackets. My first bracket was shredded when Michigan State, who like everyone else I had going deep, laid an egg in their opener. I tried again with a Sweet 16 bracket, but Gonzaga and others crushed that one. There were only eight teams to choose from when I did an Elite Eight bracket, but I botched that one, too - I had Kansas winning, and though I don't apologize for this one I didn't have Syracuse advancing, either. My crystal ball is clearly cracked this year. So, there is only one thing to do - give it one last try.

Elite Eight Bracket Picks and Expert Predictions
by Trevor Whenham - 3/26/2016
Well, another round is in the books. And, as so often happens, a truly brilliant first week of the tournament was followed by a Sweet 16 round that was mostly dull. The higher seed won all eight games, they covered in every case, and only two of the games were even close. It was not the two nights that we dreamed about. Actually, it kind of sucked.

Free Sweet 16 March Madness Prop Bets & Predictions for Friday
by Chris Vasile - 3/25/2016
It is amazing what some down time can to do rejuvenate bettors. If they use that time wisely, that is. In my case, I was able to process the first two rounds of the tournament and come to an understanding of what to expect from each team taking part in the Sweet 16 round. The results speak for themselves. I went 3-0 last night, hitting all three of my team totals prop bets.

Sweet 16 Betting Advice: Best and Worst March Madness Wagers
by Trevor Whenham - 3/24/2016
Up until this point I have spent most of my time writing about and focusing on the brackets heading into the Sweet 16. As the games draw nearer, though, it's time to shift focus a bit and look at what in many ways is a lot more interesting - the spreads. For the most part the spreads in the Sweet 16 are fair - at least some version of what I would expect them to be.

Free Sweet 16 March Madness Prop Bets & Predictions for Thursday
by Chris Vasile - 3/24/2016
Tonight's slate of games features some very interesting matchups. And from what the Las Vegas lines say, some evenly-matched games. As we get deeper into the tournament the lines get sharper and sharper, which is why picking a side is an even tougher task now than in the first two rounds.

Free Sweet 16 Betting Picks: NCAA Tournament Dogs with Massive Wagering Value
by Trevor Whenham - 3/23/2016
On any given day I am drawn to betting underdogs. Maybe I'm just a romantic at heart - always pulling for David and rooting against Goliath. In the NCAA Tournament, though, my fascination for underdogs grows even stronger. There is something about this tournament that can produce underdogs that cover big spreads, or even win outright, and make faithful bettors' pockets fuller. It's a beautiful thing. Looking at the Sweet 16 field illuminates three underdogs that seem to have particular appeal this time around.

Reseeding the Sweet 16 According to NCAA Tournament Championship Futures Odds
by Chris Vasile - 3/23/2016
As usual, the tournament lived up to its "March Madness" nickname and produced some of the biggest upsets and comebacks the NCAA Tournament has ever seen. From Middle Tennessee State knocking off the co-favorite Michigan Spartans, to Wisconsin's winning buzzer beater against Xavier to Texas A&M's biggest last-minute comeback in NCAA Tournament history.

NCAA Tournament Sweet 16 Free Picks for Best Team Props
by Dave Schwab - 3/23/2016
In one of last week's top prop picks, I went with the "over" that at least two No. 1 seeds would advance to the Final Four at +110 betting odds. That wager is still alive and well with all four No. 1 seeds advancing to the Sweet 16, but things start to get tricky from here with some solid competition still left in the other 12 teams. The following are a few more picks for these special NCAA Tournament team props based on the best value in the betting odds.

Sweet 16 Betting Advice: Differences Between Opening Round
by Trevor Whenham - 3/22/2016
We are at a transition point in the NCAA Tournament. Really, it's like a whole new tournament starts on Thursday, because what we will see over the four days of this weekend will bear little resemblance for both bettors and fans to what we saw over the last weekend of insanity. Bettors who ignore those differences and approach this coming weekend the same as last one are going to cost themselves money over the long term by sacrificing an edge and making value tough to find.

March Madness Bracket Predictions: Ranking the Sweet 16 Teams
by Trevor Whenham - 3/21/2016
The field for the Sweet 16 is set, and after perhaps the craziest opening weekend in NCAA Tournament history we have a couple of much-needed days to sit back, regroup, and assess where we are at. While it seemed like there was going to be a bizarre set of teams alive for the second weekend after Thursday and Friday, the truth is that it is actually a pretty top-heavy group. All four No. 1 seeds survived - and didn't experience much stress in doing so.
