Exclamation March Madness Betting Info

Friendly reminder ....

Be Careful when lines come out tonight

There's a lot of head faking that goes on with openers for the tourney. Sharps bet Team A hard at low limits to push line. Often public follows thinking it's sharp action and pushes line more. Game day comes and then sharps NAIL Team B HUGE.


Good Luck and enjoy the games

Should see a ton of Oregon love upcoming

Classic 12-5 matchup, great ATS run, etc.

Since 2005, a 12-seed has beat a 5-seed in all but two tournaments - 2007 and 2015

Since 2008 (excluding First Four), there have been 38 tournament games between teams that already played each other that season.

Winners of the first matchups are 24-11 (.686) in rematch.

The Big Ten led all conferences with 8 NCAA Tournament bids.

The last time the Big Ten had 8 bids none of those 8 teams reached the Elite Eight (2016).


Duke is the No. 1 overall seed in this year's NCAA Tournament. Since overall seeding began in 2004, only 3 of them went on to win the national title:

2013 Louisville (later vacated)
2012 Kentucky
2007 Florida

Average margin of victory in the 1-16 games is 24.36 points. That includes UMBC's historic upset last season.
