The 2012 NCAA Tournament has arrived and with it once final chance to pad our bankrolls for the season. To make that shining moment happen, let's take a look at how teams in this event have fared most recently in the past. Note all results are since 1991 unless noted otherwise.

NCAA TOURNEY - MOST RECENT TRENDS

  • #1 Seeds are 84-0 SU (48-35-1 ATS) vs. #16 Seeds
  • #2 Seeds are 80-4 SU (35-45-4 ATS) vs. #15 Seeds
  • Only TWICE since 1988 has a #12 Seed failed to beat a #5 Seed (5-7 SU & 8-4 ATS L3Y)
  • Favorites of 7 > pts who are 3-0 SU & ATS in their last 3 games are 14-28-1 ATS vs a foe off a SU win
  • Favorites of 20 > pts are 2-8 ATS vs. a foe off a SU win
  • Favorites of > 7 pts who scored 100 > pts in last Conference Tourney game are 11-2 ATS
  • Dogs of 4 > pts playing off a SU Conference Tourney win as a dog of 6 > pts are 7-27-1 ATS last 12 years
  • Dogs of 18 > pts off a DD ATS win are 5-1 ATS
  • Dogs off a SU tourney win in which they allowed 80 > pts are 2-11 ATS

    Because it's my belief that success in handicapping this tournament is tantamount to breaking the action down into rounds, let's take a look at some of the more relevant Most Recent Trend results that have occurred in ROUND ONE games of late:

    FIRST ROUND NOTES

  • #1 Seeds off BB SU wins who are favorites of < 25 pts are 12-2 ATS
  • #2 Seeds are 9-24-4 ATS vs foes off a SU win
  • #3 Seeds off a SU favorite loss are 32-1 SU & 24-8-1 ATS (10-2 L7Y)
