Five NCAA Basketball Tournament Bubble Teams Predictions

Written by on February 15, 2017

With a handful of teams sitting on the proverbial ‘bubble’ before the start of the annual NCAA March Madness college basketball national championship tournament, college hoops bettors everywhere need to know just what they can expect out of many of these would-be tourney hopefuls over the remaining month of college hoops.That’s where I come in!Thanks to the expert analysis I’m going to provide on five bubble teams, you could cash in big over the next month and beyond. Now, let’s rock and roll with these March Madness picks.

Analyzing The Five NCAA Basketball Tournament Bubble Teams Predictions


Oklahoma State

The Oklahoma State Cowboys (16-9 SU, 12-7-1 ATS) have won six of their last seven and beat nationally-ranked West Virginia along the way. Unfortunately, Oklahoma State has also suffered convincing losses against Iowa State, Kansas, K-State and Baylor among their last 10 games. Upcoming games against K-State and Iowa State will likely determine whether the Cowboys get into the national championship tournament, but I wouldn’t be real confident in the inconsistent ‘Boys.


I know the Hoyas (14-12 SU, 9-15 ATS)have won four of their last six games while beating likely tourney teams in nationally ranked Creighton and unranked Butler, not to mention the fact that they beat Oregon in November, but I wouldn’t bet with someone else’s money on Georgetown. A pair of losses against Providence and Xavier and losses against mediocre Marquette (15-10) and lowly Arkansas State (14-7) tell me the Hoyas are nothing more than a classic ‘Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde’ team that will break your heart and bust your bankroll.


The Bulldogs (15-11 SU, 12-10 ATS) may have won two straight at the time of this writing, but they’re pretty much a non-factor for March Madness consideration if you ask me. With upcoming games against Kentucky and Alabama, things don’t look good for the Dogs right now!

Georgia Tech

The Yellow Jackets (15-10 SU, 11-9 ATS) have recorded impressive wins over North Carolina, Florida State and Notre Dame, but they’ve also suffered double digit losses against Wake Forest, Clemson, Virginia, Louisville, Georgia, and Tennessee not to mention their 110-57 debacle of a loss against Duke on January 4. The Yellow Jackets have some huge games coming up against Miami, Syracuse, NC State and Notre Dame before finishing up at home against Pittsburgh.


With stunning wins over North Carolina and Virginia Tech, the Hurricanes (16-8 SU, 7-15 ATS) look like they could be a problem for anyone. However, don’t believe the hype when it comes to the ‘Canes. Miami has lost four of their last eight and six of their last 11 games overall while getting routed by Florida State, Duke, Wake Forest and Syracuse.
