    Southern Tourney (03/06/15)

    By John Ewing Director of Research and Analytics @johnewing
    Championship Week – which teams will win automatic bids to the NCAA Tournament? We simulated each conference tournament to find out.

    Conference tournaments are the unofficial start of March Madness. Over the next two weeks, single-elimination tournaments will be played with automatic bids to the NCAA Tournament at stake.

    We have simulated each conference tournament using our Bracket Simulator to predict which teams will punch their ticket to the Big Dance. The Bracket Simulator is a free tool that gives you the power to simulate the postseason for any sport. Create your own bracket now!

    When: March 6-9

    Where: Asheville, N.C.

    The automatic bid goes to: Wofford (33.0%)

    Wofford won the SoCon regular season title as the Terriers returned nearly their entire roster from last year's NCAA Tournament team. Wofford is the favorite to represent the Southern Conference again in the Big Dance with league Player of the Year Karl Cochran leading the way. Wofford also benefits from having a top 40 defense in our Power Rankings.

    And if they lose: Chattanooga (22.5%)

    The Mocs split their two games with Wofford in the regular season and it looks like we are headed for a rubber match in the title game. On a neutral court, Wofford would win 60.1% of the time by an average score of 64.1 – 60.9.

    Bid Thief:

    Mercer: if you remember the Bears won the Atlantic Sun last year and then knocked off Duke in the first round. Mercer lost most of last year's tournament team but it's not out of the picture that the Bears could make another run in its new conference.

    Odds to win the Southern Conference Tournament (based on 50,000 simulations of the conference tournament)

    1 Wofford 76.1 52.5 33.0

    03/13/2017 Highlight: Using our ResultsFinder tool, it's evident that the Predictalator is entering March Madness in incredible form. The Predictalator posted 59 "normal" or better plays in March (plays with greater than 57% confidence) and went a stellar 36-23 (61.0%) on those plays. An average $50 bettor would have profited $678 using our recommended wager sizes. After posting an outstanding 8-1 (88.9%) ATS record on "normal" or better sides in last year's NCAA Tournament, the Predictalator looks poised to produce more NCAA Tournament winners.

    NBA predictions continue to follow the same heat wave of college hoops, as all playable sides are 30-25 (54.5%) ATS in the month of March. More importantly, top plays continue to produce at a staggering clip, with all "normal" or better sides off to a solid 9-3 (75.0%) ATS mark in March, producing $284 in profits for an average $50 bettor.

    The Predictalator's NHL picks continue to cash in consistenly as "normal" or better ML and PL plays are an outstanding 32-18 (64.0%) on the season, amassing $507 in total profits. While the betting market has really tightened up with NHL in recent months, the Predictalator continues to find success and is now 449-367 (55.0%) on all playable ML and PL plays this season.
