The overall #1 seed in March Madness are the Kansas Jayhawks from the south. Committee members did them no favors. Even thought the #2 and #3 seeds are iffy, the #4 and #5 challengers are ripe with potential. So what makes #4 Cal and #5 Maryland superior to the higher seeds in the bottom part of the bracket? Join us at HRWager as we quickly whip through the south bracket and give our initial impressions.
South is Stacked
Maryland and California in the same side as #1 seed Kansas is packed. Colorado as a #8 seed with their rebounding ability is a potent test. The other side of the bracket is less impressive with #2 Villanova and #3 Miami. Even though the Hurricanes will blow out Buffalo in the first round, the bottom is not impressive. Sleeper is Cal with them having a probable three young NBA lottery picks on their team.
First of all, take a talented Temple team against Iowa in the first round. The Hawkeyes collapsed in the Big Ten season and are vastly over rated even at a #7 seed. Miami (#3) is much more of a complete team than Villanova (#2) and should come out of their half of the bracket. Finally, UConn is on a roll but needed a miracle to get past Cincinnati. Buffaloes are like the Bearcats but are better. Take the Buffs for a 2x wager in the first round.
Good fortune to everyone in the upcoming March Madness. We get the best play in game we might have ever seen with Vanderbilt against Wichita State. Lots of talent and upset potential with Kansas getting challenged in the second weekend of action. We will see you tomorrow here at the HRW.
