Ready For The Big Dance?

It’s known by many names – March Madness, the NCAA Tournament, the Big Dance – and for sports bettors it’s one of the most intense betting events of the year.

The 2018 NCAA Tournament offers up 67 games for bettors to handicap, starting with the First Four in Dayton, Ohio, and continuing through the regional action, the Sweet 16, the Elite Eight, and finally the Final Four – which will be held in San Antonio, Texas.

Getting off to a hot start with your betting (or your bracket) can set the tone for your March Madness betting experience. With that in mind, check out our opening-round seed vs seed results history pages:

Seed vs Seed Results

The 2018 NCAA Tournament starts on March 13 and March 14 with the First Four in Dayton, followed by first- and second-round March Madness action from March 15 to March 18. The Sweet 16 matchups will take place on March 22 and March 23, with the Elite Eight held on March 24 and March 25.

The Final Four then gets underway in San Antonio on March 31 with the national semifinal games, and the championship game will be played at the Alamodome on April 2. North Carolina claimed its sixth NCAA Tournament title last year by downing Gonzaga 71-65 behind a gutsy 22-point effort from guard Joel Berry II. Who will take home the title this year, and will the 2018 NCAA championship game be as hyped as the 2017 finale?
