March Madness gambling handicappers will have 16 teams to choose from in this March Madness betting event from New York’s Madison Square Garden March 9-13. The Syracuse Orange will enter this March Madness gambling event as the class of the field and the March Madness betting chalk.
The Orange finished as Big East Conference champions for the regular season and will be a popular March Madness pick with the public. Syracuse was 28-3 straight up including 15-3 in Big East action. The Orange enter March Madness gambling action as one of the most profitable teams on the board with a mark of 19-8 against the spread.
A strong trio of second place March Madness gambling commodities will follow Syracuse into Big East Tournament action. Villanova finished 24-6 straight up and 18-11 against the spread but also faded poorly down the stretch.
West Virginia, on the other hand, finished with strong March Madness gambling momentum to end up with a record of 24-6 straight up but just 13-16 against the spread although they covered 4 out of their last 6 games.
Pittsburgh also closed well and will enter March Madness gambling with a record of 24-7 straight up and 16-10 against the spread. Pitt was a dangerous 8-2 against the spread as a dog this year.
That is followed by a foursome of teams that will likely make the March Madness gambling field for the “Big Dance” as long as they don’t suffer an embarrassment in the Big East Tournament.
Marquette, Louisville, Notre Dame, and Georgetown finished with winning records in conference play and all were profitable on the board with the exception of Louisville. South Florida and Seton Hall broke even in Big East play and would need a strong showing in order to get off of “bubble status” and into the “Big Dance.”
The rest of the March Madness gambling lineup for the Big East Tournament is comprised of long shots that would need to win the Tournament outright in order to “Dance.” Connecticut would be the biggest name and most dangerous team from this group.
