The heat is fierce and it is going to reach the boiling point in college basketball as the NCAA Tournament and the National Invitation Tournament (NIT) head for their championship games. The NCAA's Sweet 16 round begins Thursday night and the NIT tonight finds which two teams will fill out its Final Four. The game is the same as it has been for the past two weeks-lose and go home.
Both tournaments have been good to me and my clients and the winning continues tonight with my 100-unit NIT Game of the Year-a contest I intend to win just as I did my 200-unit NCAA Game of the Year this past Saturday as Marquette (-5) knocked off Murray State, 62-53. This 100-unit winner will come from two games-Minnesota (21-14) at Middle Tennessee State (27-6) and Nevada (28-6) at Stanford (23-11).
You can win my 100-unit NIT Game of the Year for just $50, charged to your major credit card and head into the NCAA's Sweet 16 round tomorrow night with a solid bankroll. For the record, I will be releasing 50-unit plays in the Big Dance on both Thursday and Friday and may come out firing with another 100-unit game on Saturday or Sunday. It all depends on the numbers and the situations each team finds itself in the Elite Eight round.
Day to day, as they say.
While the current focus is on basketball, I must remind you the Major League Baseball season begins in eight days, on Thursday, March 28, as the Seattle Mariners and the Oakland Athletics meet in the Tokyo Dome in Tokyo. The teams will meet on back-to-back nights and the remaining teams will begin their seasons next week.
I had a great baseball season in 2011 and am prepared to have another one this time around. You can get the entire season for just $199, charged to your major credit card, and receive 2-3 games each day, seven days a week, right through the World Series in October. Daily plays will cost $15.
I have put together some facts and figures that hopefully will help a bit in handicapping the NCAA Tournament.
Odds, Facts Figures In NCAA Tournament
Odds to win the NCAA championship are those currently posted at the Super Book at the Las Vegas Hotel (formerly the Las Vegas Hilton). They are listed in alphabetical order. RPI and SOS figures are from the NCAA. RPI ratings reflect the overall performance of each team as evaluated by a combination of factors. SOS figures represent a team's strength of schedule. There are 344 Division-1 teams rated by the NCAA each season. In understanding the rates, Baylor is considered the 9th best team in the country and has played the 16th toughest schedule.
