March Madness betting on the Memphis Tigers will be very popular this year, especially after the Tigers came up short in the title game last season.
The Tigers have not gotten the hype in 2009 March Madness odds and that might make them a better value for gamblers.
March Madness betting last season saw Memphis go 3-3 against the March Madness odds. They won their first two games but didn’t cover the March Madness betting number. They won in Sweet Sixteen, Elite Eight and Final Four action and covered the March Madness betting spread each time. They failed in the title game though losing to Kansas by a score of 75-68.
March Madness betting on Memphis should be exciting this season as the Tigers have one of the best records in the country. Many people will say that Memphis hasn’t played anyone this season since they are in Conference USA and that may be true but head coach John Calipari knows how to win in the NCAA Tournament. Memphis is led by senior forward Robert Dozier who can impact March Madness betting lines at anytime. Tyreke Evans is another player to watch as he could be very important for the Tigers in the 2009 NCAA Tournament.
The Tigers have struggled somewhat against the March Madness odds in the first two rounds. They are just 10-12 in their last 22 games in the first two rounds versus the March Madness odds. Things get better though for the Tigers in the Sweet Sixteen as they are 5-1 in their last six games against the March Madness betting number.
Memphis is now a national power and they get respect in the March Madness betting lines. Sometimes early in the tournament they get too much respect and they struggle to cover the big numbers in March Madness betting. Later in the tournament they have been a better bet in March Madness odds so keep that in mind. You may always want to keep in mind that Memphis is a good over team in the NCAA Tournament. They have gone over the total in six of their last seven tournament games. Calipari likes his teams to pressure the ball which can lead to turnovers and high scoring games.
