March Madness Seeds: 6 vs 11

Being selected as a No. 6 seed heading into the NCAA Tournament has been the kiss of death in March Madness brackets more often than not over the past few years while getting picked as a No. 11 seed has consequently proven to be an open door to the second round.

The No. 11 seeds have gone a solid 16-11-1 ATS in the previous seven NCAA Tournaments up until 2016, including a brief 1-3 slump both straight-up and versus the line in 2013.

Three No. 11 seeds covered the spread in 2014, with two of them winning SU (Tennessee and Dayton) in the first round and then advancing even further in the NCAA Tournament. In 2015, No. 11 seeds went 2-2 SU and ATS as UCLA and Dayton collected victories in the opening rounds. Dayton eventually bowed out to Oklahoma in the Round of 32, while UCLA topped UAB before getting booted in the Round of 16 thanks to a 74-62 loss to Gonzaga.

Tennessee, Dayton and UCLA are among 20 of 43 No. 11 seeds all-time that upset No. 6 seeds in the first round and also advanced to the Sweet 16. And Dayton is one of six No. 11 seeds that has made it at least to the Elite Eight, with three of them getting as far as the Final Four (VCU in 2011, George Mason in 2006 and LSU in 1986).
