Welcome to the RotoBaller NCAA March Madness’Full Bracket Prediction’.
The 68-team area is formally set, and that I trust you were fortunate enough to have your favorite college make it. However, in the event that you solely root for a single university, as I do with UNLV, you’ll be watching the tournament with no dog in the struggle. Do not worry though! March Madness provides you with a chance to fill out a mount and compete against both friends and strangers in your search for perfection.
Before I lead you as the conductor with this journey, let’s make one thing abundantly clear. Your likelihood of creating a perfect mount are 9.2 quintillion to 1. To put that amount into perspective, you’re just about as likely to have all these things happen during your life. Want to be president? One in 10 million. Think you are the upcoming good actor? One in 1.5 million. Consider yourself a future medal-winning Olympic athlete? One in 662,000. Though this is discouraging news for anybody attempting to make history, there are ways to raise your chances if you stick to an ideal strategy. Look at Ronald Reagan. He discovered a means to achieve two of the three situations mentioned above. If only he were a marginally greater swimmer, Reagan could have achieved the impossible.
There are a couple of things that you should consciously be looking into when breaking down your bracket. For starters, Vegas is generally right. That doesn’t mean to take all of the favorites, but if you start selecting a lot of underdogs in the opening round — particularly ones that the public bettors have grown an incline towards, your mount can start dismantling itself right away. I have always found it to be successful to search for a couple of vital statistics in regards to the two mid-major programs along with your perennial top-seeded teams. Underdogs that can spring upsets usually specialize in a few of the same characteristics every season. You don’t have to do all of these, but the ability to not turn over the ball, prevent offensive rebounds, force steals and shoot a high three-point percentage will be crucial. The notion is that if you’re able to restrict possessions for your competitor, you can neutralize some of those skill discrepancies that you may face. Vice versa, higher-seed teams (your top programs) need to prevent being three-point dependant, should use their dimensions to make offensive boards and will need to figure out a way to force turnovers or never turn the basketball . It basically is the specific opposite approach of the mid-majors. If the powerhouse teams can create more possessions for themselves, then it will be extremely difficult for inferior programs to continue dancing in March. Without further ado, let’s dive into this bracket and simulate this thing from start to finish.
