    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!
     
    PredictionMachine.com has been very profitable in conference tournaments. All-time on the site, "normal" or better conference tournament picks are 84-54 (61% ATS and O/U). For access to conference tournament picks, click here.
     
    When: March 6-10
     
    Where: Springfield, MA
     
    The automatic bid goes to: Manhattan (28.0%)
     
    The championship game will most likely be the rubber match between Manhattan and Iona, the teams split their regular season meetings. The Jaspers are our most likely MAAC Champion because they have a more favorable path to the title.
     
    And if they lose: Iona (25.5%)
     
    Iona is the best team in this conference, in the most likely title game, Iona vs. Manhattan, the Gaels win 54% of the time by an average score of 78-76. Iona’s more difficult semifinal matchup is preventing us from crowning them the MAAC Champions.
     
    Bid Thieves:
     
    Canisius: If the Golden Griffins can get past Iona in the semifinals, the MAAC Title game would be a coin flip.
     
    Odds to win the MACC Tournament (based on 50,000 simulations of the conference tournament)

    The Predictalator

    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.
