New Mexico State vs. Saint Louis March Madness Betting Prediction: March 21st 2013

New Mexico State vs. Saint Louis
March Madness Betting Prediction: Saint Louis -9.5 (March 21st 2013)

St. Louis has won and covered 15 of their L16. They are a very well-balanced unit. Five players are either flirting with or posting DDs with Dwayne Evans leading the team in both scoring (13.1PPG) and rebounds (7.7 RPG). They play very methodically on offense forcing foes to adjust to their game. It is the Billikens “D” that truly stands out. They led the Atlantic 10 in both scoring defense and TO margin. They rank 19th , yielding a mere 58.1 PPG and allowing just 41.3% FGs. 6’11” 240 lb Rob Loe and 6’9″ 240 lb Cody Ellis will play very physical against New Mexico State’s 7’5″ 355 lb, Sim Bhullar. The Center averages 10.2 PPG and 6.5 RPG . NM State won 5 straight but those wins were against Louisiana Tech, Texas Arlington twice, Idaho, and Texas State. The only solid team they had faced this season was back-to-back contests vs. New Mexico in December in which NM State lost and failed to cover both. Because of their 2 Big men, the Aggies can rebound. However, their overall offensive stats are 68 PPG, 32% 3-pointers, and 65.6% FTs. On “D” , they just give up tons of points and are very vulnerable vs. teams that can shoot from beyond the arc. The Billikens are 4-0 ATS their L4 non-Conference games, 6-1 ATS their L7 games played on neutral sites, and 20-6 ATS their L26 games played overall. Take St. Louis. Thank you.

2013 March Madness Bracket Picks from

BRACKET PICKS 20132013 Official March Madness Bracket Picks – You’ve Got Questions, We’ve Got Answers!
Don’t miss out on our expert’s premium against-the-spread picks…..

If you’re like most college basketball fans and betting enthusiasts, then you’ve probably got a ton of questions surrounding the potential winners in each region of the 2013 NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship Tournament prior to filling out your bracket. Thanks to this expert NCAA tournament betting guide, you’ll have a great idea of just which teams stand the best chances of advancing in their respective regions and potentially reaching the Final Four.

South Region
In the South Region, we like Kansas, Villanova, VCU, Michigan, Florida, San Diego State and Georgetown to advance to the second round. Following that, we are going to take the Kansas Jayhawks to take down Villanova, Michigan to beat VCU, Florida to beat Minnesota and the Hoyas to beat San Diego State

Now, with the Sweet Sixteen on tap, we’re going to back the No. 2 Hoyas to beat No. 3 Florida and No. 4 Michigan to beat No. 1 Kansas in a thriller. In the end, we’re going with the battle-tested Wolverines to reach the Final Four out of this region based on the fact that they have arguably the best guard in the nation in Trey Burke and a wealth of experience earned through a grueling Big Ten season against quality opponents.

East Region
We like No. 1 Indiana, No. 8 NC State, No. 5 UNLV, No. 4 Syracuse, No. 6 Butler, No. 3 Marquette, No. 10 Colorado, in a huge upset – and No.2 Miami to advance to the second round.

The Hoosiers will then sneak past NC State in a second round thriller to meet Syracuse (after they beat UNLV) in the third round. At the bottom of the bracket, we like Miami to reach the Elite Eight against No. 3 Marquette, though the Golden Eagles will have their hands full against No. 6 Butler in the second round.

With a bracket final four featuring Indiana, Syracuse, Miami and Marquette, we like the more athletic Orangemen to beat the No. 1 Hoosiers while No. 2 Miami beats both, Marquette and Syracuse to reach the Final Four out of this region. The Hurricanes are underrated and playing with a chip on their collective shoulders, not to mention the fact that they’ve got a great backcourt, led by former NL MVP winner Barry Larkin’s son!

Midwest Region
No. 1 Louisville, No. 9 Missouri, No. 4 St. Louis, No. 6 Memphis No. 3 Michigan State No. 10 Cincinnati and No. 2 Duke will all advance to the second round. After that, we like the top-ranked Cardinals to be joined by St. Louis, Michigan State, and Duke in the Sweet Sixteen.

Now, we get to the shocker for this round – and that’s a pick for the fourth-ranked Billikens to take down No. 1 Louisville while No. 3 Michigan State does likewise to the Blue Devils. Following those upsets, we like St. Louis to win this region and reach the Final Four.

West Region
No. 1 Gonzaga, No. 8 Pittsburgh, No. 5 Wisconsin, No. 4 K-State, No. 6 Arizona, No. 3 New Mexico, No. 7 Notre Dame and No. 2 Ohio State will all advance to the second round. We like the top-ranked Bulldogs, Wisconsin, New Mexico and Notre Dame to all reach the Sweet Sixteen before Wisconsin upsets Gonzaga with its smothering defense and New Mexico does likewise to the Fighting Irish in the bottom half of the bracket. We then like New Mexico to complete its run to the Elite Eight by taking out Notre Dame in an unexpected pairing that puts the Lobos in the Final Four.

Now, with just four teams remaining, (Michigan, Miami, New Mexico and St. Louis) it’s time to make some very, tough decisions en route to our 2013 NCAA Tournament Championship pick. likes the second-ranked Hurricanes to take down No. 4 Michigan as they use their outside-inside style of play to beat the Wolverines up front. Not many teams can match Michigan’s backcourt featuring Trey Burke, but Miami has the tools to reach the national championship final.

On the other side of the bracket, we like No. 4 St. Louis and genuinely believe this team has a ‘date with destiny’ much like the Baltimore Ravens did on their amazing run to the Super Bowl. New Mexico s very, very good – and could certainly beat the Billikens if they’re not on top of their game, but we don’t see that happening.

In the end, is going to pick Miami to narrowly beat St. Louis in one of the most unexpected championship matchups in NCAA basketball history. But then again, in this wild and crazy season in which no team could hold on to the nation’s overall No.1 ranking for more than a couple of weeks at best, we think this matchup may be more the ‘norm’ than anything!

That’s right Touthouse collegiate hoops gamblers … March Madness is finally here – and the opportunities to cash in with potentially winning wagers are absolutely amazing!

Thanks to this in-depth 2012 March Madness Bracket Picks breakdown and my accompanying picks to advance all the way to the NCAA Tournament Final – devoted Touthouse college hardwood gamblers will be able to zero in on just which teams present the best chances of striking pay dirt by actually winning it all.

Okay, let’s get started in the South Bracket where No. 1 seeded Kentucky should have plenty of motivation after losing to Vanderbilt 72-64 in the SEC title game this past Sunday.

Barring any unforeseen circumstances, college basketball bettors can expect the Wildcats to roll in their first two games, both of which will be in their back yard in Lexington. Yes, the Cats could meet UConn in the third round, but they should roll fairly easily over the defending national champs. I also like No. 4 Indiana to advance to the Sweet Sixteen and meet the Wildcats – where they will throw everything they can at John Calipari’s team before falling just short in a thriller.

In the bottom half of the bracket, I like No. 3 Baylor to advance all the way to the Sweet 16 opposite of No. 2 Duke. Now, while this matchup has all the makings of a tightly contested matchup between two ‘polar-opposite’ ballclubs, I like the underrated, up-tempo Baylor Bears to beat the Blue Devils and advance to the Elite Eight opposite of Kentucky.

While the Wildcats clearly have at least three first round draft picks on its roster including consensus No. 1 overall pick, Anthony Davis, something tells me the Bears are going to pull off a huge upset in this contest as they turn this matchup into a high-scoring track meet.

In the West bracket, I like Michigan State to advance to the Elite Eight by beating Long Island, Memphis and Louisville and I like them to face No. 2 Missouri, though I’ll be the first to admit that Mizzou will have its hands full with Marquette in the third round.

Missouri is one of the deepest teams in the country and can literally overwhelm their opponents with waves of speedy players that attack at both ends of the floor almost constantly.

Now, by my calculations, I have Missouri and Baylor meeting in one Final Four – and I am going to back the Tigers to advance all the way to the national championship title game.

No. let’s move on to the other side of the bracket and get started in what looks like a tightly contested East Region.

Top-seeded Syracuse will be without starting center Fab Melo and I think that fact will cause them to suffer an early round upset loss to Kansas State in the third round. Opposite the K-State Wildcats, I like the Vanderbilt Commodores to build on their impressive SEC title game win by beating both, Wisconsin and K-State to reach the Elite Eight.

I also like the red-hot Florida State Seminoles in the East bracket. The Seminoles could very well build on their ACC title game win over North Carolina by beating Cincinnati – and No. 2 Ohio State to reach the Elite Eight. The Seminoles are a lot better than most people know, so no matter how far they go in this year’s tourney, I won’t be very surprised.

In the Midwest bracket, North Carolina looks very safe through its first two games, but they’ll have their hands full in the third round with No. 5 Temple – a team that could very well pull off the huge upset and advance past the Tar Heels.

In the bottom half of the bracket, I like No. 3 Georgetown to advance out of the region by beating No. 6 San Diego State and No. 2 Kansas. Of course, I think it’s quite possible the Jayhawks will advance all the way out of the bracket, but I really like the Hoyas’ defensive mindset, so I’m sticking with John Thompson’s team here.

Now, as far as my Final Four picks are concerned, I have Florida State meeting the North Carolina Tar Heels – where they will beat their conference rivals for the third time this season and advance all the way to the NCAA Championship game.

Okay Touthouse NCAAB gamblers, that leaves us with just two teams – Missouri and Florida State – even if it’s not quite what you expected.

Both of these teams are deep and fast and come at you in waves that often remind me of the Showtime Lakers of Magic Johnson’s heyday. Both ballclubs also recorded solid ATS records this season with Florida State going 18-13 ATS and Missouri posting a bankroll-boosting 18-9-2 ATS mark.

Florida State (24-9) has won six straight games heading into the NCAA Tournament and used its swarming defense to limit its opponents to a paltry 38.1 percent field goal percentage to rank fifth in the nation.

The Seminoles also have two future NBA players on its roster in 6-5 junior shooting guard Michael Snaer (14.5 ppg) and athletic 6-10 sophomore forward Bernard James (10.5 ppg).

Missouri finished second to Kansas in the Big 12 but won the conference title by spanking Baylor 90-75 while cruising to its fifth straight win and eighth in its L/10 games. The high-scoring Tigers finished sixth in the nation in scoring (80.3 ppg) while nailing an incendiary 50.4 percent of its field goal attempts to finish third in the nation in shooting.

Sure, the Tigers don’t have a lot of size with just two players standing over 6-9, but what the Tigers do have is a bunch of speedy guards that can apparently shoot the lights out.

Missouri has five players that all average double figures in scoring, led by 6-3 senior combo guard Marcus Denmon and 6-6 senior sniper Kim English.

In the end, I’m going to go with the battle-tested Missouri Tigers, mostly because they’re a bit more experienced than the Seminoles, though I’ll be the first to admit that Florida State can literally beat any team in the nation after pulling off the rare feat of beating North Carolina and Duke – two times apiece this season.

2010 NCAA Basketball Tournament Upset Picks for March Madness

2010 NCAA TOURNAMENT UPSET PICKSThe first two rounds of the NCAA Tournament is one of the most popular times of the year for sports bettors; even those not custom to tackling the daily grind of investing in sports like to get in on all the action. With this year’s field wide open, a number of lesser known teams have shots at becoming the next George Mason and coming from out of nowhere to blow up the betting public’s brackets. Here’s a look at three teams that believes is capable of stringing together a couple of upsets. 2010 March Madness 1st Round Upset Picks

1) Murray State Racers – When sifting through the brackets and taking a gander at teams from lesser known conferences, it’s imperative to see just how well that team fared against its conference foes. In the case of the Racers, they dominated going 20-1 SU and, and they avenged the lone loss in the OVC Tournament Championship Game by taking out Morehead State 62-51 as four-point favorites. This team covered easily against its only NCAA Tourney qualifier when it went into Berkeley and easily covered the 13.5-point spread falling 75-70 at Cal. This club is highly efficient offensively (#3 at 50.3%) and plays lock down defense evidenced by it allowing an average of 60.5 PPG (#21) and opponents to shoot just 38.6 percent (#11) this season. Unfortunately, the betting public is well aware of this clubs abilities as they currently stand as three-point underdogs after opening up as 4.5-point pups.

2) New Mexico State Aggies – The Aggies punched their ticket to the dance with a solid run in the WAC Tournament that saw them upend Utah State 69-63 as 10-point underdogs in the championship game. While this club lacks much of anything at the defensive end of the court, it can flat out score and shoot form a high percentage from the field. Five players average double-digits in scoring with guards Jahmar Young and Jonathan Gibson setting the pace with 20.5 and 17.5 PPG respectively. Michigan State has proven to be a much lesser from than from years past. Though it closed out the year with wins in 5 of its L/7 games, all those victories came against B10 teams that aren’t going to any tournaments this season. If their shots and the Aggies compete on the glass, the Spartans could be the victims of yet another 12/5 upset.

3) Utah State Aggies – Many players from last year’s team that suffered a heartbreaking 58-57 Round 1 loss at the hands of the Marquette Golden Eagles are back looking to advance the Aggies into the second round for the first time since the 2000-2001 season. Though they’ll be taking on a gritty Texas A&M club on Friday, Head Coach Stew Morrill’s kids have as good a shot as any of the other 12 seeds to ruin many a bracket this tournament. Saturday night’s loss to the Aggies in the QAC Championship game was the first defeat incurred by this club since January 4th. That’s right! USU won 17 games in a row before ultimately losing, and they went a $$$-making 13-4 ATS during that stretch. This club is highly efficient (#7 at 49.1%) and can flat out stroke it from beyond the arc (#3 at 41.9%). Oh yeah, they also play stellar defense evidenced by its 59.6 PPG allowed on the year (#11). A&M is prone to going into scoring droughts, and if they do so in this spot, the Aggies can turn this one into a laugher!
