March Madness betting action on the MWC Tournament will run March 9-13 from Las Vegas as the March Madness gambling field is a strong one. March Madness betting fans will see one of the deepest tournament lineups in the history of this March Madness gambling event and a foursome of top teams that have a strong shot at making the March Madness bet board next week.
The New Mexico Lobos will enter the Mountain West Tournament as the regular season champion and March Madness betting favorite. The Lobos finished 28-3 straight up and 18-12 against the spread. New Mexico is a solid March Madness betting road team that went 7-4 against the spread when traveling.
Brigham Young is another March Madness betting commodity that will be favored to win the Mountain West Tourney. BYU had a record of 28-4 straight up and 18-11 against the spread. The Cougars enter March Madness betting with a road record of 9-4 against the spread and will have plenty of fan support in Vegas.
UNLV will also have plenty of March Madness betting fan support as well as the need to show well in the tournament to ensure an invite to the “Big Dance.” The Runnin’ Rebels finished 23-7 straight up and 18-10 against the spread. UNLV would be a dangerous dog in the later stages as they got the money 4 out of 5 times as a pup.
San Diego State is the epitome of a March Madness betting bubble team that can assure themselves a berth in the “Big Dance” with a strong showing in the Mountain West Conference Tournament. The Aztecs finished 22-8 straight up and 15-12 against the spread, including 9-6 against the board on the road.
The most dangerous team from the pack of “also-rans” would be the Utah Utes, who are a perennial contender in the Mountain West. Utah finished only 14-16 straight up and 11-12 against the spread but is also a team that nobody wants to play.
