March Madness Seeds: 3 vs 14

March Madness upsets seldom happen at the 14 seed as only four teams have pulled the upset over the No. 3 seed since 2001.

It happened last year when Harvard upset New Mexico and also in 2010 when Ohio destroyed Georgetown. It happened in back to back seasons in 2005-2006 when Northwestern State upset Iowa and Bucknell upset Kansas.

Overall, the No. 3 seeds have dominated the betting recently with a 17-7 ATS mark in 24 games covering six March Madness brackets.

Only two 14s have advanced to the Sweet 16 (Cleveland State in 1986 and Chattanooga 11 years later) and none made the Elite Eight.

The UNDER is 9-3 the past three seasons when 3 plays 14 according to the new March Madness database at OddsShark.com. Syracuse is perfect 3-0 ATS as a No. 3 seed since 1995 and they face Western Michigan in 2014.

Other 2014 3 vs 14 matchups include Duke vs Mercer, Creighton vs La-Lafayette and Iowa State vs NC Central Eagles.
