March Madness gambling handicappers believe that this is the year that Memphis’ luck with the March Madness odds will possibly run out, however. March Madness gambling action on the Conference USA Tournament will take place March 10-13 from Tulsa, OK.
The Texas El Paso Miners will enter action with the March Madness odds as the regular season champions of Conference USA and the basketball betting March Madness chalk to take the Conference USA Tournament.
UTEP had a March Madness gambling record of 24-5 straight up and 12-13 against the spread with a most impressive straight up mark of 15-1 in league play. Their only conference loss was to Houston. UTEP is a strong March Madness gambling road team that went 8-4 against the spread away from home this year.
Memphis is not to be written off by March Madness gambling handicappers, despite their 2nd place finish. The Tigers were 23-8 straight up and a poor value at 10-16 against the spread. Memphis did excel as an underdog, however, at 3-1 against the spread.
Despite their great tradition and strong showing in the league this year the Tigers will likely need to win the event outright to receive a March Madness gambling invite to the “Big Dance.”
The next trio of teams all have the March Madness gambling potential to win the Conference USA Tournament and will need to do so in order to get their tickets punched. Alabama Birmingham, Marshall, and Tulsa could be the March Madness gambling spoilers of this tournament.
Alabama Birmingham was 23-7 straight up and 15-21-1 against the spread, Marshall was 23-8 straight up and 15-9 against the spread, while Tulsa was 21-10 straight up and 10-14 against the spread. Tulsa will have plenty of home town fan support as an intangible factor to consider.
Southern Miss makes for a potentially strong value at 18-12 straight up and a most profitable 18-7 against the spread.
