Welcome to the RotoBaller NCAA March Madness’Full Bracket Prediction’.
The 68-team field is officially set, and I hope you’re fortunate enough to have your favorite college make it. But in the event that you solely root to get one college, like I do with UNLV, you will be seeing the tournament with no real dog in the fight. Do not worry though! March Madness provides you with a chance to fill out a mount and compete against both strangers and friends in your search for perfection.
Before I guide you as the conductor on this trip, let’s make one thing abundantly clear. Your odds of creating a perfect mount are 9.2 quintillion to 1. To put that amount into perspective, you are nearly as likely to have each these things occur during your lifetime. Want to become president? One in 10 million. Believe you’re the next good actor? One in 1.5 million. Think of yourself a prospective medal-winning Olympic athlete? One in 662,000. Though this is discouraging news for anyone trying to make history, there are strategies to increase your chances if you stick to a perfect strategy. Look at Ronald Reagan. He discovered a means to reach two of the three scenarios mentioned previously. If he were a slightly better swimmer, Reagan could have accomplished the impossible.
There are a few things you should actively be looking into when breaking down your bracket. For starters, Vegas is generally perfect. That does not mean to take all of the favorites, but if you start selecting too many underdogs in the opening round — particularly ones that the people bettors have grown an incline towards, your bracket can begin dismantling itself immediately. I have always found it to be successful to search for a few vital statistics in regards to the two mid-major programs and your continuing top-seeded teams. Underdogs that can spring upsets usually specialize in a couple of the same features every season. You don’t have to do all these, but the ability to not turn the ball over, prevent offensive rebounds, induce steals and shoot at a higher three-point percentage will be crucial. The notion is that if you’re able to restrict possessions to your opponent, you are able to neutralize some of those skill discrepancies that you might confront. Vice versa, higher-seed teams (your leading apps ) need to avoid being sporadically dependant, must use their size to create offensive boards and need to find out a way to force turnovers or never turn the basketball over. It basically is the exact opposite strategy of the mid-majors. In case the powerhouse teams may create extra possessions for themselves, it is going to be extremely difficult for inferior programs to keep dancing in March. Without further ado, let’s dive into this bracket and model this thing from begin to finish.
