Why Should You Bet On An 11 Seed Over The 6 Seed?

Three No. 11 seeds covered the spread in 2018, while two of them won straight up in the first round to move on in the NCAA Tournament. In 2017 and 2016, No. 11 seeds went 3-1 SU and ATS both years. The No. 11 seeds had another great year in 2022, going 3-1 SU and ATS. The fact that No. 11 seeds are 12-12 SU vs No. 6 seeds in the last six year-end tournaments should be enough to make bettors think twice before writing off the lower seed.

Sounds like a great time to find a high underdog spread!

Will An 11 Seed Make The Final Four?

Five No. 11 seeds have made it to the Final Four – UCLA in 2021, Loyola Chicago in 2018, VCU in 2011, George Mason in 2006 and LSU in 1986 – while eight No. 11 seeds have made it at least to the Elite Eight. More than half (28 of 54) of the advancing No. 11 seeds all-time have advanced to the Sweet 16.
