Look at the favorites

The time for trying to pick the upset is just about over, as it’s usually the cream that rises to the top when it matters. We generally always get a #1 or a #2 seed moving on to the National Championship Game, and this year looks as though it might not be any different. If that is indeed the case then expect Virginia, Michigan State, or both, to move on.

Beware of letdowns

If there is a reason for concern with Michigan State, it’s that they might have a bit of a letdown game this Saturday. They are coming off a huge win over Duke, who were massive favorites this year, so there may be a sense that they have already won, which is not the case.

Take a shot at a parlay

With so many games going on in the earlier rounds of the tournament, some bettors get a little gun shy at putting together a parlay. This is especially true when you consider that upsets and close call are a major component of what makes this tournament so special. With just 2 games on tap this Saturday, you have a great shot at maximizing your winnings by putting together a parlay ticket.

Playing against the spread

Of the 4 teams left in the tournament, only one team has covered in all four rounds. That would be the Texas Tech Red Raiders, so if you are looking for a good team to play ATS, they might well be the one. They have also beaten a higher seed in each of the last two rounds, so they are not going to head into the weekend fearing Michigan State.

Pay attention to the line movement

If you are planning on leaving it late to make your wagers, then pay attention to the lines for both games. Not much is happening right now, but that might change later in the week.Virginia is one of the favorites for the 2019 March Madness Final Four.

If the line starts to shift in your favor, make your bets sooner rather than later.

Playing the point total

Looking at both match-ups this weekend, there is one that stands out in this regard. Through the first four rounds of the tournament, the Texas Tech Red Raiders and Michigan State Spartans are a combined 2-6 O/U, which would certainly suggest that the UNDER is the way to go here.

Take your phone with you

Many of us will be heading out to our favorite watering holes to take in the action this Saturday, so get your phone in your pocket and be prepared to visit our mobile site so that you can wager as you watch.
