    Tourney Odds (11/09/15)

    Odds to win the 2016 NCAA Tournament. Odds courtesy of

    The road to the Final Four begins Friday. Before the college hoops season tips off we check in on the odds to win the 2016 NCAA Men's Basketball Championship.

    Surprise, Kentucky is still good!

    The Wildcats lost seven players to the draft last season but are still the No. 1 team in our Power Rankings and the early favorites (7/1) to cut down the nets in Houston.

    Could the ACC have three No. 1 seeds when March Madness rolls around? Duke (17/2), North Carolina (10/1) and Virginia (18/1) all have top ten odds to win the title and are all top ten in our rankings.

    SMU is one of the best teams in the country (No. 13) but the Mustangs are banned from the postseason and Larry Brown is suspended nine games for academic fraud.

    Speaking of misconduct, Louisville and Notre Dame have been in the news lately. The Cardinals (No. 19) and Irish (No. 14) are legit top 25 programs that are greater than 50/1 to win the tournament.

    Maryland (10/1), Michigan State (20/1) and Cal (22/1) are all getting love from the bookmakers with top ten title chances, but according to our rankings each team has inflated lines.

    If you are looking for value, based on our preseason rankings, Virginia (18/1), Oklahoma (40/1) and Utah (75/1) aren't being shown the respect they deserve.

    Below are teams with 100/1 or better odds to win it all, additional odds can be found at

    The Predictalator

    The Predictalator is the most advanced sports forecasting software available today because it has the ability to account for all of the relevant statistical interactions of the players, coaches, officials, home field advantage and weather in each game.

    Picks for every game, including our Play Value Key and Calculator recommendations for optimal bankroll management and access to the Play Analyzer can be purchased in the Shop or by game here.

    05/10/2017 Highlight: With baseball season now into its second month, we can leverage our ResultsFinder tool to profile our season-to-date numbers. MLB sides and totals continue to remain extremely profitable despite a recent run of bad variance to start May. The Predictalator's record of 272-250 on sides and totals this season doesn't look all that impressive, but that's because the simulations have sided with underdogs more often than favorites. Through May 9, the Predictalator has generated $547 for an average $50 bettor. "Normal" or better sides, totals, and run lines (our strongest edges) are 14-10 (+$118) season-to-date.

    The NBA Playoffs continue on in the Second Round and the Predictalator has been profitable on both sides and totals in this year's postseason. Despite being just 16-19 (45.7%) ATS in the NBA Postseason, the Predictalator has generated $46 of total profit, which is a testament to our play value recommendations. Totals have been the real moneymaker in this postseason though, as all playabale totals are 19-15 (55.9%) for a solid profit of $168.

    The NHL Playoffs have featured some very tight lines posted by oddsmakers, which has led to lower volume for the Predictalator. That hasn't let to less profits though. The Predictalator has posted 10 NHL positions (ML, O/U, or PL) in May, going 8-2 (80%) on those positions for a profit of $87. It is rare to find a big edge in the NHL this late in the year, but the Predictalator continues to chip away on small edges to provide solid returns.
