March Madness Sweet 16 SBG Odds Overview

On this occasion, we get a strong offshore bookmaker combination of blue blood powers and upstart Cinderella teams. Power name brands include the North Carolina Tar Heels, UCLA Bruins, Kansas Jayhawks, and Gonzaga Bulldogs. And then there is Saint Peter’s, a 15th seed David that took its slingshot and rock to take out Goliath (Kentucky).

In a similar way, Michigan is in the upstart category. Michigan was said to have not belonged in the tournament. Yet here are the Wolverines, with two wins en route to the Sweet 16.

Of course, as much as things change, they will remain the same. The public will flock to the blue blood brands. In comparison, Sharps will consider the value of underdogs at enhanced prices. Wise Guys love to oppose the casual bettors in March Madness. Cause by the sharps knowing that the oddsmakers will have to charge extra for the name brands. Otherwise, too much pubic betting action will flood the power brands.

Where Did These Guys Come From?

First Saint Peter’s scored an 85-79 March Madness betting win over Kentucky as 18-point underdogs. Second round action saw the Peacocks beat a strong Murray State team 70-60 as 8-point dogs. Wise Guys have noticed Saint Peter’s getting the cash in ten of their last 11 games. Most important of all, the Peacocks played at a level that showed they were for real. Saint Peter’s two wins were no accident. Now the question comes as to when midnight will strike for this compelling Cinderella.

Rock Chalk Jayhawk

Namely, Bill Self is one of the dirtiest coaches in college basketball. But for some reason, the college basketball media protects him while calling for the heads of Will Wade and Bruce Pearl. This week gamblers will have to give the devil his due. Self has put the Jayhawks in the Sweet 16 after being written off for dead at the end of January. Following a humiliating home loss to Kentucky, Self-orchestrated a remarkable turnaround. Kansas is playing its best ball of the season. Kansas is making money with four covers in its most recent five games.

Final Four Bruin for UCLA?

Last year the UCLA Bruins shocked the world by making the Final Four. This year they were ranked as a second-tier favorite. But the Bruins’ 72-56 rout of Saint Mary’s is indicative of their ability to advance. In the Sweet Sixteen, UCLA will face North Carolina in an epic matchup of historic Blue Bloods. Accordingly, North Carolina blew a 25-point lead to defending national champion Baylor. But the Tar Heels showed nerves of steel in winning the overtime session!
