Louisville is a team that could prove to be a dangerous commodity as they were 23-7 straight up while going 12-5 in Big East play and 16-10-1 against the spread. Rick Pitino is as respected a coach as there is to make a NCAA March Madness bet with among handicappers and is an X-factor.
Syracuse is another dangerous team that could win the Big East Tournament. Syracuse was 24-6 straight up and 11-6 in conference play while going 12-16 against the spread as the Orange again proved to be a potential bet on March Madness overlay as a favorite.
St. John’s has been one of the great stories of the season as new coach Steve Lavin has energized the program and made them into a likely “Big Dance” candidate. St. John’s went 19-10 straight up and 11-6 in the Big East while going 14-14 against the spread.
From there dangerous teams such as Cincinnati, Georgetown, West Virginia, and Connecticut lurk and Marquette will be desperate for a good showing in order to ensure a March Madness bet appearance in the “Big Dance” next week.
