NCAA Tournament Sweet 16 Betting Preview

March 27, 2019

Hosts Stuckey, Collin Wilson, Mike Randle and Eli Hershkovich are back, bringing you a jam-packed Sweet 16 betting preview. They reflect on the first two rounds of the tournament, lament UCF’s failure to put Duke away, and look forward to some seriously juicy weekend matchups. It may be time to hop off the Oregon bandwagon, as Stuckey has Virginia pegged as a survivor-pool lock this weekend. The guys also highlight key upsets they like, including Florida State, Texas Tech, LSU, and Virginia Tech advancing to the Elite Eight. Of particular note, UNC-Auburn projects as a highly-entertaining track meet, with the Tar Heels’ rebounding contending against Auburn’s defensive havoc and 3-point shooting.

NCAA Tournament Friday Betting Preview

March 20, 2019

Hosts Stuckey, Collin Wilson, Mike Randle and Eli Hershkovich break down all 16 of Friday’s NCAA Tournament games and give their Final Four picks from the South and Midwest Regions. Stuckey and Randle throw emphatic support behind UC Irvine, and Randle goes all-in on Buffalo and Mississippi State. Stuckey spends exactly eight seconds discussing Duke’s First Round matchup, and he also dejectedly throws in the towel on his Washington title futures bet. Eli and Randle go back-and-forth on whether or not Ethan Happ is “Luke Maye-ish,” and I guarantee you’ll be shocked by how thoroughly Collin researched the Gardner-Webb Runnin’ Bulldogs.

Hosts Stuckey, Collin Wilson, Mike Randle and Eli Hershkovich give their first-take reactions to the freshly-unveiled NCAA Tournament Bracket.

They break down key takeaways from each region and even dive into some of their gut-call upset picks, including Northeastern over Kansas and even Belmont or Temple to the Sweet 16. The guys close the show by offering their preliminary Final Four picks (subject to massive changes in the next few days).
