Ncaa tournament bracketology preview (part 1)

  1. 2. March Madness and the NCAA Tournament are unquestionably the peak time for college basketball betting all year long. The Tourney is probably the most wagered on event of the year with the exception of the Super Bowl.
  2. 3. Winning college basketball picks are always available at Vegas Experts where you can also download our free weekly handicapping newsletter, which contains free basketball picks from our expert sports handicappers.
  3. 4. The final issue of the My EDGE Newsletter will be published on March 15th, just in time for the 2011 NCAA Tournament. This is our most popular issue of the year as it contains our annual Bracketology article, where we assist you in filling out the brackets so that you can win your office pool.
  4. 5. New to this year's tourney is the advent of multiple "play in" games or as College Basketball powers like to call them “opening round games.” Beginning in 2001, on the Tuesday following Selection Sunday in Dayton, OH, typically the two lowest seeded teams in the field have squared off for the right to play the highest seeded team in the field.
  5. 6. It is important to note that since 2004, these "play-in games" have not been very competitive with every contest decided by eight points or more. Last season was the first time the underdog won or covered in four seasons.
  6. 7. For this season, the "opening round" has been expanded to four games. Two of them will feature teams seeded 16th in their region, thus making them obvious candidates for “one and done.”
  7. 8. However, there will also be two "play in games" between teams seeded 12th in their region, which is certainly important to note because, as well all know, 12 seeds have a strong history of going on and upsetting 5 seeds.
  8. 9. Because of this, you'll probably be required to have your brackets filled out a few days earlier as previously the "play in game" had been largely disregarded by most office pools. Up next we will be taking a look at how #2 through #4 seeds have historically fared in the first round.
