NCAA Sweet 16 picks in the wild.
After re-evaluating, here are my picks after the first two round of the NCAA tournament:
Elite 8: Uconn, Pitt, Memphis, Villanova, Louisville, Oklahoma, Michigan State, UNC
My final four is the same:Memphis, Louisville, Pitt, and UNC
Finals: Memphis versus Pitt
Good picks for the sweet 16 games: (Winner are in Bold, losers are in italics.)
Villanova +120 (I have them as a favorite in this game).
Michigan State -1.5 at -110
Gonzaga +350 (They’ll probably lose, but this price is fantastic.)
Pitt -320 (Added 3/26/2009 11:28 am)
Results: 3-1. A bet of “100” on each of these games yields a profit of 142.16 for a 35.54% return.
For the tournament I am 8-5 with a 19.82% return per bet.
Check out my results from the first round.
San Diego State beats St. Mary’s Tonight.
Notre Dame Beats Kentucky.
Then, San Diego State beats Baylor to go to the Finals, and Penn State beats Notre Dame for their spot in the finals.
And I’m switching to Penn State as my pick for the NIT champion.
