Final Four Betting Trends at SBG Global

December 1, 2010 NCAA Basketball

NCAA brackets for Final Four betting trends show that a third of all #1 seeds since 2002 have advanced to the Final Four.

#2 seeds have done almost as well in NCAA brackets for Final Four betting as 7 have advanced to the Final Four. Let’s consider some other Final Four betting trends.

NCAA brackets for Final Four betting trends show that four #3 seeds since 2002 have made it to the Final Four. Only two #4 seeds and two #5 seeds have made it to the Final Four since 2002. Only one seed that was lower than the #6 seed has advanced to Final Four betting and that team was George Mason in 2006 as a #11 seed. Since the tournament went to 64 teams there has not been a tournament where all four #1 seeds made it or where no #1 seeds made it in NCAA brackets for Final Four betting.

Looking at more NCAA brackets for Final Four betting trends we see that in the last 6 years five #1 seeds have made it to the title game. A #1 seed has made it to the title game in 7 out of the last 11 years. As you look at NCAA brackets for Final Four betting you may want to stay away from freshmen point guards. In the 2008 NCAA brackets for Final Four betting the only freshman point guard still alive is Derrick Rose from Memphis. It seems unlikely that Memphis will make it in Final Four betting as all but one of last year’s freshmen point guards lost before the title game. Only Mike Conley Jr. made it to the title game while most of the others lost early on.

If you want to pick winners in your 2008 NCAA brackets for Final Four betting you want teams that win on the road. All of the teams that couldn’t win on the road except for one (Michigan State) have lost in the 2008 tourney.

Statistics for gamblers looking at NCAA brackets for Final Four betting show that favored teams in the Final Four have held their own, especially if they are favored by 7 or more points. Underdogs do okay but only if they are small dogs in Final Four betting. Since we know that a #1 seed makes it to the Championship game most of the time it makes sense that they are a decent bet in NCAA brackets for Final Four betting.

Keep some of these trends in mind as you fill out your NCAA brackets for Final Four betting this season.
