March Madness Final Four

Best Bets: Sweet 16, Mar. 28

What a weekend we have here. Tex is getting ready for a really great weekend because my sister is getting married. She’s pissed I won’t be at the wedding but it’s also her own god damn fault for scheduling a wedding during the Sweet 16, so that’s on her. This weekend is building up to be one of the best in recent memories of the NCAA Tournament with so many high seeds still in it. We got lucky too because usually when high seeds make it to this point, they get rolled. But in this case, we’ve got a 12 playing an 8, and a 7 playing an 8 while only three matchups are truly lop-sided with a 15 playing a 3 and a two 11’s playing 2’s. 

For this edition of Best Bets, we are going to shoot straight, something the Ohio State Brickeyes couldn’t do. We are giving out our favorite spread bet, total bet, prop bet, and even one that might be out there but we are riding with it. 

The Best Spread: Florida State +2.5

The Seminoles have their toughest challenge yet in facing Michigan to try and advance to the Elite Eight. What I like about this matchup for FSU is that their weakness, which is turnovers, shouldn’t be exposed all that easily. This team lost to Georgia Tech in the ACC Tournament because they lost the ball 25 times, but Michigan is a team that has a turnover rate that ranks 337th in the country. 

FSU has height and they have speed and that should be just enough to give the Wolverines absolute fits at the rim. Without Isaiah Livers, it is nice that Michigan was able to get this far but I could see an upset, or at the very least a cover by FSU.

The Best Total Bet: OVER 142.2 UCLA/Alabama

The UCLA Bruins have been a huge shocker in this tournament despite being a Power 5 school. That’s because no one has any respect for the Pac-12, rightfully so, but the conference came to the tournament ready to fuck shit up. The Bruins are currently shooting 47 percent through their first three March Madness games and we all know how well Alabama shoots the rock, putting a massive emphasis on getting to the line. When it comes to a total bet in March, there is nothing I like more than a team that is able to get to the line for an OVER. This game could be a few points off the total and then gets to the line in the double bonus three times in the last minute and boom, OVER hits. 

Defensively, neither of these teams stick out and this is a good spot to roll the dice and hit the big number. 

The Best Prop: Drew Timme Rebounds OVER 7.5

Gonzaga has the best center in the country in Drew Timme and this should be a game that he absolutely dominates in. Timme is 6’10 and he is facing a Creighton squad that doesn’t have a starter in its 5 with a guy who is over 6’7. Timmee will be protecting the glass the entire time in this one. At this point, he is averaging 7.3 rebounds per game and in the last outing against Oklahoma, he put up 13 boards. 

Wildcard: Full-Card Parlay Bet 

I am not going to give much explanation on this one other than, I am taking every Sunday single game and this is the parly for you as well as what the payout would be. 

Gonzaga -13.5

FSU +2.5

Alabama -6.5

Oregon +2 

Odds: +1201

Payout: $50 wins $600
