March Madness Fans Improve Their Office Pool IQ’s.
Sports Gambling Guide Offers Expert Bracket Tips And Key Factors for Picking NCAA Basketball Tournament Winners.
Las Vegas, NV (February 12, 2007) – March Madness is a spring ritual for millions of sports fans, but the NCAA Men’s and Women’s Basketball tournaments are unlike any other college basketball games. Three-time sports handicapping champion and About.com’s Sports Gambling Guide RJ Bell, a featured guest on CNN, ABC, The Washington Post, Maxim Magazine, and numerous sports radio stations, is preparing tournament guides at Pregame.com for the casual fan, and the uninitiated gambler. Bell offers free tips, picks, stats, odds and lines, up and down the court, and is available for media interviews about office pools, bracket picks, and sports gambling.
“Office pool success is typically decided by two types of predictions,” said Pregame.com’s President RJ Bell. He recommends, “First, pick teams that will go deep into the tournament, and second pick a healthy amount of upsets in the early rounds.”
Bell reports only one or two top seeds have advanced to the Final Four in 18 of the last 21 years. “On the surface every #1 seed looks strong, but you’re not going to win your pool without scoring some surprises.” He says, “picking upsets” wins bracket pools and recommends advancing only one #1 seed to the semifinals in your bracket.
Of the 84 Final Four teams in Pregame’s sample, 32 failed to meet key factors including making the tournament the prior year, having a preseason AP All-American, beating opponents by an average of 10+ points a game, and garnering at least 35% of scoring from their front court (forwards and centers). Bell said, “Don’t count on #1 seeds falling easily. They are 84-0 in the first round.”
Pregame.com will have March Madness scouting reports and predictions, and will offer opinions from leading college basketball insiders and professional bettors throughout the tournament, including early rounds, Sweet 16, Elite 8, and Final Four.
“According to the NCAA, 35% of male college students bet on sports and 7 of 10 adults are reported to have placed some sort of wager in the last year,” said Bell. “At Pregame.com we offer information worth betting.”
