Pitt was the top team in the Big East regular season and will be a popular choice with the March Madness odds. The Panthers were 26-4 straight up and 13-12 against the spread.
Pitt demonstrated excellent balance as they ranked 47th in the nation offensively and an even better 21st for team defense as they allowed just 60.8 points per game. Ashton Gibbs led Pitt with 16.3 points per game.
Notre Dame is a very intriguing Big East Conference contender that could bring exceptional board value. Despite their success the Irish are still not taken seriously by many handicappers and certainly not by the general betting public that flocks to basketball betting madness March action after ignoring the regular season.
Notre Dame was 24-5 straight up and 14-10 against the spread and had a well balanced offense that scored an average of 75.7 points per game. The Irish were led by Ben Hansbrough who averaged 18.4 points and 4.2 assists per game.
Louisville is another Big East team that could garner plenty of attention with gamblers if for no other reason than Rick Pitino is their coach. The Cardinals were 23-7 straight up and 16-10-1 against the spread and have a potent offense that averaged 75.4 points per game.
Syracuse is a team that can win it all but is often a poor March Madness betting line value as evidenced by their 12-16 mark against the spread despite going 24-6 straight up.
