Slowly but surely, it is starting to feel like the sports world is returning to normal. Just two years ago, on a Friday morning, NCAA conferences tournaments started being shut down. And by Sunday, basketball fans received the gut punch that the Big Dance was canceled and our sports betting picks were obsolete. Last year we saw a number of teams playing through Covid protocols. Some games were played with only friends and family in the stands. Baylor stood alone after trouncing Gonzaga in the championship game. This year both teams return to the tournament with Number 1 seeds.
March Madness 2022
Baylor ended Gonzaga’s perfect season and both teams are back as Number 1 seeds this year. Powerhouses like Kentucky and Kansas are in the mix and everyone will be watching to see if Coach K can go out on top. Will this finally be the year a mid major cuts down the nets? Lines are out now and we are firing away! Click here to read my top 5 picks for betting on college basketball. I have to give it to the huge books like Draft Kings and Fan Duel. They were the first to put on lines and they aren’t afraid to take a bet. The town is packed, the sports books are full, let the madness begin.
Sports Betting Picks Recap
Last week ended up in the black, finishing 17-14 (+3.8 units). NCAA Basketball finished with a great week of conference tournaments going 13-9 (+6.2 units). Bad weather forced the PGA to a Monday finish and John Rahm’s 9 on the fourth hole had us go 1-1. Yes folks that is a Quintuple Bogey! Expect the PGA volume to pick up as the bigger events get going. The NBA went 3-4 (-.6 units) with a few awful 4th quarters.
MLB is Back!
The best news last week is that MLB is coming back! I will be on the daily baseball grind again this season and making my betting picks. Remember, I have profited over 25 units in 4 of my last 5 full seasons. After the dust has settled on the Big Dance, it will be time for the NBA Playoffs. I am excited for this year’s playoffs and have been working with my team on the possibility of NBA Player Props for this playoff season.
Enjoy the first weekend of the tournament. There are a lot of games in the morning, noon and night. Just remember, bet with your head, not over it this March and let’s continue the grind!
