March Madness bet conversation from the Atlantic Ten begins with the Temple Owls, who are also the most familiar March Madness betting name from the league. Temple had a March Madness bet mark of 23-5 straight up and 17-11 against the spread.
The Owls were tied with Richmond for the top spot in the Atlantic Ten March Madness betting race. Temple’s most impressive March Madness gambling credential was a 75-65 upset win over Big East power Villanova on December 13.
Richmond had a March Madness bet mark of 22-6 straight up and 15-9 against the spread to rank along side the Owls as one of the better March Madness bet values from the Atlantic Ten Conference. Richmond has straight up wins over Missouri and Florida for their March Madness bet resume. They also clobbered Temple 71-54 on February 6.
The Xavier Musketeers are also a familiar name with March Madness bet fans as they have been something of a regular in the “Big Dance” over the years. Xavier had a March Madness bet record of 20-7 straight up and 17-9 against the spread. Xavier’s problem is that they lack a win over a big name team for their March Madness bet resume.
The Charlotte 49ers had a record of 19-8 straight up but just 9-13 against the spread. The 49ers were in fourth place in the Atlantic Ten Conference race. Charlotte has a signature win for their resume over Louisville on December 5. The Saint Louis Billikens had a record of 18-9 straight up and 13-8-1 against the spread.
They were tied with Charlotte for fourth place in the Atlantic Ten. St. Louis is lacking in a “signature win,” however. Rhode Island and Dayton were also contenders with outside shots at a spot in the “Big Dance.”
As is often the case with leagues such as the Atlantic Ten the wild card for everything is the conference tournament as a few upsets could completely alter the landscape of the brackets.
