    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 6-11
     
    Where: Las Vegas, NV
     
    The automatic bid goes to: Gonzaga (38.1%)
     
    The Zags won their 13th regular season WCC title in the last 14 years. The Bulldogs should receiver an at-large bid regardless of the outcome of the conference tournament. Gonzaga has either won or been the runner-up in every WCC tournament since 1998.
     
    And if they lose: Brigham Young (21.3%)
     
    BYU needs a deep tournament run to secure an invitation to the Big Dance. The Cougars are talented enough on offense (26th in offensive efficiency) to win their first WCC Tournament title but rank outside the top 100 in defensive efficiency.
     
    Bid Thieves:
     
    Saint Mary’s: The Gaels have reached the title game of the WCC Tournament in each of the last five years, but most likely will need to win it all to keep their two year NCAA Tournament streak alive.

    The Predictalator

    03/27/2017 Highlight: With the start of MLB right around the corner, we can use our ResultsFinder tool to uncover some past success in baseball. April has historically been a great month for the Predictalator, as evidenced by last season's outstanding 41-22 (65.1%) record on all "normal" or better ML, RL, and O/U plays. A $50 bettor would have profited a whopping $1,002 using our recommended wager sizes in April. MLB season win totals have also been extremely fruitful in the history of this site, with the Predictalator producing an outstanding 54-19 (74.0%) record on all playable win totals.

    March Madness is winding down and it was another solid month for the Predictalator. There were a total of 69 "normal" or better college hoops positions (sides and totals) in the month of March, and the Predictalator posted a strong 42-27 (60.9%) record, generating $704 in total profits. NBA has also followed suit with "normal" or better positions winning at a 58.1% clip since the beginning of February, and at a 57.9% clip for March.

    NHL profits continue to roll right along as well, as the Predictalator has cashed in on nine of 12 "normal" or better positions in March. The Predictalator has now amassed an incredible 45-28 (61.6%) on all "normal" or better money lines, puck lines, and totals this season, totaling $499 in total profits for a ?$50 bettor.
