Reseeding Sweet 16 According To ATS

The craziest weekend of the sports calendar is behind us with the NCAA Tournament field being whittled down from 64 to 16 over four days. It hasn't been the easiest span to wager on with all the buzzer beaters and massive comebacks, so we decided to reseed each of the remaining teams in March Madness based upon their ATS records.

In an instance of teams having an equal percentage of covers this season, we ranked the team on the hotter ATS streak higher in the standings.

Without further ado, these are the best to the worst bets in the Sweet 16 for this season-to-date.

1) Kansas Jayhawks (23-11 ATS)

Though they had a rocky patch for bettors in the middle of the regular season, Kansas easily comes in as the best ATS team remaining in the NCAA Tournament with a 23-11 record for bettors.

The Jayhawks are 2-0 ATS so far this tournament while sporting victories of 26 and 12 points respectively.

2) Oregon Ducks (19-13-1)

Oregon heads into the Sweet 16 riding a streak of 10 consecutive victories SU, but are just 6-4 ATS in that span. The Ducks have an identical 19-13-1 ATS record as Miami, but the Ducks get the nod for second place with a 3-1 ATS record in their past four games,

3) Miami Hurricanes (19-13-1)

The U has been struggling for bettors since the beginning of March with Miami going just 2-4 ATS this month. Despite that, the Hurricanes are still a respectable 19-13-1 for bettors on the season as a whole.

It has been a struggle for Miami to cover away from South Beach, as the team is just 8-10 in games on the road or at a neutral site this year.

4) Indiana Hoosiers (19-15)

The Hoosiers have been one of the more consistent bets to close out the season with the team going 5-1 ATS in their past six games. Indiana will need the stellar play from Yogi Ferrell if they wish to continue to cash out, as the senior point guard has averaged 19.5 points and seven assists per game in the tourney.

5) Iowa State Cyclones (17-13-1)

Iowa State is one of the hotter teams left in the Sweet 16 for bettors, as they enter their game with Virginia on a four-game ATS streak. The Cyclones will certainly come into that game as underdogs, but the Cyclones have gone 2-0 ATS in their past two when being spotted points.

ISU has posted an average scoring margin of +15 while facing an average closing spread of -6.5 in the tournament.

6) Syracuse Orange (18-15)

Syracuse remains one of the few Cinderella’s left standing as the Orange are just one of two double-digit seeds left. 'Cuse has covered in five of their past six, including each of their past three games.

Syracuse has been fantastic in neutral site games this season, going 5-1 ATS in that spot.

7) Virginia Cavaliers (18-15)

Virginia closed their ACC schedule red-hot going 9-2 ATS in their final 11 games within the conference. The Cavaliers have gone 1-1 ATS since starting March Madness, but only failed to cover their second game by half a point.

8) Texas A&M Aggies (17-13-2)

The Aggies pulled of a miraculous double-overtime victory against NIU in the Round of 32, but that did not do much for bettors as they failed to cover the -7 point spread. Keep an eye on Texas A&M’s line against Oklahoma, as the team is jut 2-3 ATS as dogs this season compared to 15-10-2 ATS as faves.

9) Wisconsin Badgers (18-16)

Wisconsin has gone a perfect 2-0 SU and ATS in March Madness so far, as the Badgers have been underdogs in both of their games. It has been Wisconsin’s defense, holding opponents to 53 points and a 39.1 shooting percentage, that has made covers come easy to Wiscy.

10) Villanova Wildcats (18-17)

‘Nova has been middling for bettors all season long having gone a pedestrian 5-7 in their past 12 games. The Wildcats are still 2-0 ATS in the tournament though, as they have sporting an average scoring margin of +19.5 points.

11) Gonzaga Bulldogs (16-16-2)

Gonzaga has gone an almost perfect 6-0-1 ATS in their past seven and has not recorded back-to-back ATS losses since the end of January.

Domantas Sabonis has been transcendent during the tournament with the big man averaging 20 points and 13 rebounds through the first two games.

12) Notre Dame Fighting Irish (15-16-1)

The Irish have been just okay ATS all season long. Notre Dame has only twice had an ATS streak more than two games, with one of those dating back to December. It has been a year largely consisting of inconsistency for bettors.

13) Maryland Terrapins (16-17-2)

Maryland has been just getting by for a good chunk of the season, as the team has frequently allowed their opponents to stick around. The Terps have gotten this far, but it has been far from pretty, despite covering against Hawaii in their Round of 32 game.

14) North Carolina Tar Heels (16-18-2)

UNC has been a relative stay away for bettors this year, but the Tar Heels know when to turn their game on. Despite a middling record through the first several months for bettors, UNC is 5-1 ATS since the beginning of March and the one failure to cover was against a -22.5 spread.

15) Duke Blue Devils (15-18-1)

Duke managed to cover against Yale, thanks to a couple meaningless free throws by Grayson Allen with eight seconds left. That broke a streak of six consecutive ATS losses for the Blue Devils though, but the team has not covered in back-to-back games since January 9.

16) Oklahoma Sooners (12-20)

Bringing up the rear is the streaky Oklahoma Sooners. OU is great when they are on, but they suffer stretches of cold shooting and this lets their opponents keep it close.

The Sooners enter the Sweet 16 on a seven-game ATS drought.
