Thanks to the expert betting analysis and predictions that you’re about to get, you’re going to have a good idea of just which teams could get into this year’s March Madness tournament and which ones could get left out in the cold come tourney time.

2019 March Madness Betting Predictions for Bubble Teams

Texas (16-14)

The Longhorns just got smacked around by Texas Tech the last time out and they’ll need to beat TCU in their finale on Saturday or make a strong run in the conference championship to have a real shot to get into the NCAA Tournament. Right now, I don’t see it happening, even though I really like Shaka Smart.

TCU (18-12)

TCU has lost three straight against West Virginia, Texas Tech and K-State heading into Saturday’s regular season finale against Texas. I like the Horned frogs to get into the Big Dance by somehow managing to reach the 20-win mark before Selection Sunday.

Florida (17-13)

Consecutive losses against Georgia and LSU have Florida on the bubble heading into their regular season finale against Kentucky on Saturday. The Gators have also suffered a pair of losses against Tennessee, not to mention they lost to the Wildcats by 11 in their earlier regular season meeting. Unless the Gators make a strong showing in the SEC tournament, I think they’ll get left on the outside looking in.

Alabama (17-13)

The Crimson Tide are also in deep danger of not making the tournament seeing as how they’ve dropped two straight and five of their last eight games heading into their regular season closer against an Arkansas team they lost to the last time they met. Basically, Alabama just doesn’t have enough wins over quality opponents this season for me – or anyone – to justify them getting into March Madness.

Seton Hall (17-12)

The Pirates had dropped three straight – until beating Big East-leading Marquette 73-64 on Wednesday night. Wins over Kentucky and Georgetown should be enough to get Seton Hall into the tourney as a No. 14 or 15 seed I suspect.

Syracuse (19-11)

The Orange have gone a modest 5-5 over their last 10 games and they have drama surrounding the vehicular accident that Jim Boeheim was involved in. While Syracuse has suffered a trio of recent losses against Virginia, North Carolina and Duke, the Orange have also recorded quality wins against Louisville, Duke, Clemson and Notre Dame among others. I like Syracuse to get into March Madness – and pull off at least one upset.
