Hello Odds Shark readers!
I, Tony Farmer, am excited to be providing my betting analysis and recommendations in this space each Monday to Friday.
If you hear me refer to the “Prediction Machine” in my analysis, that’s the model over at predictionmachine.com, which simulates games 10,000 times. If you’d like more info about Prediction Machine’s model, see the blurb below or go check us out.
I hope you were able to tail the big winner on Tuesday night as Wisconsin made easy work of Bradley 81-62 in the NIT Tournament.
For the remainder of March Madness, be sure to see my tournament picks page.
We’ve added a bet tracker for my wagers for you to follow along with!

Prediction Machine Free Play: Texas Southern ML (-145) vs Fairleigh Dickinson
Fairleigh Dickinson (19-15) doesn’t deserve to be in this position. That’s not hyperbole, either. The Knights lost their conference tournament game to Merrimack, but advanced on a technicality because Merrimack is ineligible for the tournament.
Texas Southern (14-20) has a losing record and probably doesn’t deserve to be here either, but at least they finished the season strong with three straight wins on a neutral court in meaningful games.
Advanced analytics suggest Texas Southern is the better team despite their putrid record.

Prediction Machine Daily Free Picks
Monday through Friday, Prediction Machine betting analyst and in-house handicapper Tony Farmer provides Odds Shark with his favorite play from the model’s list of recommendations.
Keep in mind, Tony’s handicapping process is completely separate from Prediction Machine’s model, so when Tony endorses PM’s pick, you’re getting congruent data from two different sources – Prediction Machine’s model-derived recommendations combined with Tony’s in-depth analysis.
While Prediction Machine is giving you the best of the best with their daily free pick, to maximize your bankroll they suggest you should follow their recommendations in volume and bet sizes religiously.
