March Madness gambling on the MAC Tournament will run March 11-13 and take place in Cleveland, OH with plenty of potential surprises with the March Madness odds. Kent State will enter the MAC Tournament as the March Madness gambling favorite as the regular season champions.
Kent State was 23-8 straight up and 14-12 with the March Madness odds. They were also an impressive basketball betting March Madness commodity on the road with a mark of 9-5 against the spread.
Akron would be the next March Madness gambling favorite to take the MAC as they finished second in the conference regular season race with a March Madness gambling record of 22-9 straight up and 13-13 against the spread. The Zips are also an impressive March Madness gambling road team with a mark of 7-4 against the spread.
From there is a logjam of teams that will have to win the MAC Tournament in order to assure a spot for themselves in the “Big Dance.” Buffalo finished third in the MAC and was 17-11 straight up and 12-12 against the spread.
Miami-Ohio was tied with Buffalo in the MAC but was just 13-17 overall straight up while going 16-13 against the spread as they were able to bring value throughout the season. Miami-Ohio is the type of March Madness gambling commodity that can be a spoiler for higher seeded teams.
The top March Madness gambling commodity from the MAC West Division is the Central Michigan Chippewas, who finished 15-14 straight up and 12-11 against the spread. Central Michigan is not much of a March Madness gambling dog as evidenced by their 5-8 mark against the spread when getting points.
Eastern Michigan, Western Michigan, and Ball State were all tied for second in the MAC West, one game behind Central Michigan. This is an even field that may be underdog oriented as laying points with any of these teams may be a poor value with so much on the line.
