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.

March Madness Seeds: 4 vs 13

If a No. 13 seed upsetting a No. 4 seed in the NCAA Tournament seems like a huge longshot, be aware that it has happened at least once in 11 of the past 15 years, the exceptions being 2004, 2007, 2014 and 2015.

And three times since the tourney field expanded to 64 teams in 1985 have there been two upsets involving No. 13 seeds in the same year, 1987, 2001 and 2008. In fact, 2014's 4-0 sweep by the No. 4 seeds ended a string of six consecutive seasons in which there had been at least one No. 13 seed advancing past the first round in the March Madness bracket.

March Madness Seeds: 2 vs 15

In 10 March Madness brackets between 2002 and 2011, no No. 15 seed had upset a No. 2 seed. But in 2012, it happened twice, throwing fear into bettors and knocking many brackets into disarray.

Wichita State Still Cashing For Bettors

Wichita State used their defensive formula in their play-in game to book their matchup with the Arizona Wildcats in the Round of 64. The Shockers ultimately won their play-in game with Vanderbilt by 20 points, which brings them to a stellar 17-5-1 ATS record in their past 23 games.

The Shockers stifling defense has confounded teams all season long as they allow the fewest points per game than any team in the nation. Only once in Wichita State’s past 10 games has their opponent scored more than 68 points. Fred VanVleet and Ron Baker, who have seemingly been apart of Wichita State since the dawn of time, pace the team with the senior duo combining for more than a third of the team’s offense.

Arizona’s offense will not be easy to stop as they average over 80 points per game this season. Three players on the Wildcats have averaged more than 15 points per game this season, led by Ryan Anderson’s 15.5 ppg and 10.1 rebounds per game.

Struggling Southern Meets Holy Cross

The season was largely a mediocre one of Southern University with the Jaguars losing four of their final eight and finishing with just the fourth-best record in the Southwestern Athletic Conference. Despite those struggles, Southern still managed to win the SWAC. Southern faces off against a red-hot Holy Cross team that has gone 4-0 SU and ATS in their final four games.

The Jaguars did manage to go 8-5 SU in their non-conference schedule, with a notable victory over in Mississippi State. Senior Adrian Rodgers has been a staple of Southern’s attack, as the guard has scored double-digit points in 16 of his past 17, with the lone single-digit effort being buoyed by an 11-assist outing.

Holy Cross is the worst team in the NCAAB Tournament. The Crusaders went 14-19 SU overall and just 5-13 SU within the conference. However, Holy Cross got hot at the right time and won their final four games to claim the Patriot League Conference title. Malachi Alexander was a big reason for the postseason berth as the 6’7 junior has averaged 20.8 points while shooting 56 percent in his past four contests.

Wolverines are Great After a Loss

The Michigan Wolverines and Tulsa Golden Hurricane will face off with a ticket to the round of 64 on the line. Both teams finished out the season on 1-4 ATS slides, while their SU records to close out the season were nothing to write home about either, with Michigan going 5-5 and Tulsa going 6-4.

Both teams have a few trends working in their favor ahead of the game. Michigan, in particular, has a history of being a great bounce-back team, as they’ve gone 46-14 SU in their last 60 games following a loss. In their last game in the Big Ten Tournament Semifinals, they were handled quite easily by the Purdue Boilermakers, 76-59.

As for Tulsa, they’re coming off of a loss in the AAC quarterfinals to Memphis — getting trounced 89-67. They haven’t lost back-to-back games since January 3. They also opened as the underdog in this one and have thrived in that situation this season, winning outright in four of seven games as dogs.

In terms of overall experience in the NCAA Tournament, Tulsa hasn’t won a game in the tourney since 2003, and last appeared in March Madness in a first round loss to UCLA in 2014. Michigan had a nice run in 2014, making it to the regional final where they lost to Kentucky.
