March Madness Ultimate Props Page

It's not called March Madness because everything happens the way it's supposed to, but sometimes history can be the best indicator of what to expect when the tournament tips off. Let's get serious though, lots of brackets will get busted within the first day or two, and that's where props come in. Prop bets can keep you in the mix throughout the Final Four as opposed to the first hours of the tournament after that #12 seed you had a hunch about gets blown out.

4 Reasons Why They Can Win: Virginia

Virginia Cavaliers NCAA

I know what you’re thinking. You see the Virginia Cavaliers as a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament and you’re thinking, “Oh here we go again. Another early-round exit for an overrated team.”

While Virginia has been a very good program the past three years, the Cavaliers have severely underachieved during the NCAA Tournament. The Cavaliers won the ACC Tournament in 2014, were given a No. 1 seed in the East Region and promptly lost to Tom Izzo and the Michigan State Spartans in the Sweet 16.

Here’s four reasons why they can win this year’s NCAA Tournament:

FGCU in Tough to Recapture 2013 Magic

Florida Gulf Coast Eagles NCAA March Madness

The Florida Gulf Coast Eagles crushed Fairleigh Dickinson by a score of 96-65 as 5.5-point favorites in their First Four matchup Tuesday night. Things will get exponentially more difficult in their Round of 64 meeting with the No. 1-seeded North Carolina Tar Heels Thursday.

  • North Carolina is 3-0 SU and ATS in its last three games with four days off in between games.
  • FGCU is 3-1 SU in its last four games versus teams with winning records.
  • The total has gone UNDER in 12 of UNC’s last 15 games versus teams with winning records.

Many will remember FGCU from its incredible run to the Sweet 16 back in 2013. That year, the Eagles knocked off #2 Georgetown and #7 San Diego State before losing to the third-seed Florida Gators in the Sweet Sixteen.

The Eagles have not had many lined games this season, but have been a hot wager at the betting window of late going 3-1 ATS (4-0 SU) in their last four games, including Tuesday’s win.

The Tar Heels have been heating up at the right time, however, and will an extremely tough Round of 64 matchup if the Eagles want to recapture that magic of 2013. They have gone 7-1 SU in their last eight games (6-2 SU) and have covered the number in their previous four games including a clean sweep at the betting window as they went 3-0 to win the ACC Tournament.

The Heels have been a bit cold ATS in recent tournament games. They have gone 1-5 ATS in their last six following a 78-71 win as 5-point favorites over Villanova back in 2013.

Butler Has Great Bounce-Back Ability

The Butler Bulldogs start their NCAA Tournament with a date against the Texas Tech Red Raiders Thursday. Butler enters that affair coming off a loss in the Big East tournament, a spot they have relished, as the team is 16-2 SU in their past 18 games coming off a defeat.

Don’t get Butler confused with their previous, defensive-minded self; this team is all about offense. Butler has been near unstoppable when their shots are falling, especially when Kellen Dunham is on his game from beyond the arc. However, the team tends to falter when their shot isn’t there, which was evident in their loss to Providence when they scored just 60 points and shot 36.2 percent from the field.

Texas Tech has been a roller coaster ride this season after looking outgunned to begin their Big 12 schedule; they surged to a winning streak that saw them top Iowa State, Baylor and Oklahoma consecutively. Shutting down the Raiders is easier said than done, as four different players has averaged double-digit points this season.

UConn Starting To Heat Up SU and ATS

The UConn Huskies enter March Madness riding a four-game winning streak SU, but they also went a perfect 4-0 ATS in that span as well. UConn posted an average scoring margin of +14.3 points per game in that span, with only a quadruple overtime game against Cincinnati being settled by single-digits. The Huskies start their potential trip to Houston with a game against the Colorado Buffaloes Thursday.

UConn has made it this far on the back of a defense that has held opponents to just 63.2 points per game. Though it has been their defense that makes the Huskies one of the best in the nation, their multi-player attack has been a key part to their team. UConn has four players that all average between 12.0 and 13.0 points per game, but there is a drop off in production past them.

Colorado struggled mightily within the Pac-12 this season as they posted a rather pedestrian 10-8 record within the conference. However, the Buffaloes went 12-3 outside the conference with two of those three losses coming against teams that were ranked at the time. If Colorado wants to keep their tournament hopes alive then they will need Josh Scott to work well in the post against a UConn team that has held opponents to 41 percent shooting in the paint.

Can Streaking Iona Pull Off The Upset?

The Iona Gaels enter the NCAAB Tournament as one of the hottest teams in the country, as they ride an eight game winning streak that has also seen them go 7-1 ATS. Iona’s high-octane offense has averaged 81.6 points per game during their winning streak and has only once ben held under 75 points. Iona may be in for a shootout in their First Round matchup against an Iowa State Cyclones team that averaged over 80 points per game this Thursday.

Iowa State enters their tourney coming off back-to-back losses to Oklahoma and Kansas. Though the Cyclones have not often found themselves in this position, the team is 12-1 SU in their past 13 games coming off back-to-back defeats. Senior Georges Niang did everything he could in those two games with a combined 53 points on 61.1 percent shooting.

If there is one mid-major player that could break into the national spotlight during the tournament it is A.J. English. The guard has averaged 22.4 with six games of 30-plus points on the season.

Virginia Has Been Dominant ATS As Faves

The Virginia Cavaliers have booked themselves what should be an easy first game against the Hampton Pirates Thursday by claiming the top seed in the Midwest Region. Virginia will enter the game as massive favorites, but the Cavs have been excellent at covering when giving up points, as the team is 8-0 ATS in their past eight as faves.

It will be interesting to see if Virginia can cover the huge spread, as they tend to play a slowed down, defensive game. The Cavaliers have won by 20-points or more six times this season, but three of those occasions came in the early part of the season against watered down competition.

Hampton comes into their matchup with Virginia as winners of eight of their past nine games. Quinton Chievous has been a big reason for the Pirates surge, as the big guard has averaged 19.6 points and 14.3 rebounds in their seven victories. Chievous missed the one loss during that span.
