A Look At Day Two Potential Upsets


Day one of March Madness is currently underway and by the end of the night I’m sure Sportscenter will be profiling several upsets repeatedly. Predicting upsets and March Madness go hand and hand. Some bettors out there are prepared to reap a few key moneyline wins. Here are a couple that I like based on tomorrow’s matchups and lines.

Providence vs North Carolina-

Moneyline Value: +160
You can’t be greedy when picking and choosing your upsets. An upset is an upset and even though this won’t give you back 4-1 or higher it still presents great value. Providence is a true five man team. They know how to play with little depth coming off the bench. Teams like that are scary because to make the NCAA tournament you must have a solid core of athletes and Providence does. Kadeem Batts, Henton, Harris, and Bryce Cotton are a formidable group. I’m not sold on Carolina’s second half of their February and March turn around.

Stephen F Austin vs VCU
Moneyline Value: +245
Maybe the Atlantic 10 will prove me wrong but I did not like what I saw from the conference as a whole this year. Shake Smart’s team is not nearly as good as it’s been in prior years in the tournament. Losing Melvin Johnson in the conference tournament against George Washington hurts them tremendously. Stephen F Austin is a team with confidence and a chip on its shoulder to show it can make it to the round of 32. I think they get it done against the poor shooting VCU Rams.
