Top Seeds Focus of More Madness Props

Top seeds are just 2-6 against the spread in Round of 64 games the previous two years but have never lost their first matchup against No. 16 seeds.

Still, you can bet whether or not a No. 16 seed will pull off the biggest upset in NCAA Tournament history this year at +900 (bet $100 to win $900) at Bovada. If you do not think that will be the case again, you will have to pay a very high price of -2000 (wager $2000 to win $100).


Boise State vs. Dayton: Play-In Betting

In 24 games as a favorite this season the Dayton Flyers were 21-3 SU. Dayton will look to pick up another win on Wednesday in the First Four against the Boise State Broncos. The winner of this game will slot into the East bracket in the Round of 64 to play against Providence.

In nine tournament games since 2000, Dayton is 6-3 ATS. The Flyers fell short in the Atlantic 10 Tournament after losing to Virginia Commonwealth, but still earned a trip to the postseason based on their 25-8 SU record. The Flyers are 17-17 SU all-time in tournament play.

First Four Odds: NFU vs. Robert Morris

The Robert Morris Colonials and North Florida Ospreys meet Wednesday in a First Four matchup with the winner facing the No. 1 Duke Blue Devils in the Round of 64. The Colonials have won six straight SU and their last three ATS en route to the program's eighth Northeast Conference tournament championship and their first March Madness appearance since 2010.

The Ospreys rolled to the Atlantic Sun regular season title, winning their final five contests to finish with a 12-2 conference record. The squad dominated early on in the Atlantic Sun conference tourney, posting double-digit wins in quarter-final and semi-final matchups, but failed to cover as 18-point favorites in an 81-67 win over last-place Stetson.
