2014 March Madness: #6 Ohio State vs #11 Dayton

Jordan Sibert Dayton Flyers Ohio State Buckeyes 2014 NCAA Tournament PickWe are picking every NCAA Tournament game in an effort to help you fill out your bracket and win your office pool.

Ohio State came into the season with high expectations. They started off hot, but had issues during the Big Ten schedule. Aaron Craft is the kind of player that excels in the guard-driven NCAA Tournament.

Dayton plays in the Atlantic 10. The toughest mid-major conference. They have over a dozen wins against teams in this year’s NCAA Tournament.

These teams are less than an hour apart from each other. The game will be played in Buffalo, so if you live in the area, expect a lot of ‘O-H’ & ‘I-O’ chants all weekend.

Who do you think will win? We help you fill out your bracket.

Sweetbob’s Saturday Betting Bonanza

Joe Biden Syracuse Orange Duke Blue Devils College Basketball February 2014I miss college football, so on Saturdays, I find myself watching everything. I use the word ‘everything’ because I seriously watch any sport that pops up on my DirecTV. At the moment, that means a lot of the Winter Olympics.

As I’m in the vortex of random sports, I find myself doing my fair share of betting. I had a great NFL and college football season and historically, I’m even better at college basketball.

This Saturday is filled with more than luge and figure skating. You have some great college basketball matchups (Syracuse at Duke) and UFC 170.

I pick February 22nd college basketball games against the spread and also pick the winners of tonight’s UFC 170. Will Ronda Rousey defend her title?

March Madness: All-White Boy Team

Marshall+Henderson+White+BoyWe love the NCAA Tournament. We actually launched our site five years ago, right after Kentucky lost in the first round.

The name “America’s White Boy” comes from a term I coined for the white basketball players CBS focuses on during the tournament.

I don’t believe this yearly ritual is intentionally racist. Think of the movies “Hoosiers” or “Rudy”.¬†These players aren’t the most athletic guys and CBS uses them to tell the story of the underdog.

The “Cinderella” aspect of the NCAA Tournament is what brings in the casual sports fan.

Here is our list of the best white basketball players in this year’s tournament. I’m sure CBS will use this as a cheat sheet for their coverage.¬† Continue reading

March Madness: West Region Picks

AaronCraftOhioStateJerseyThe West region is top heavy.

#1 Gonzaga and #2 Ohio State are coming into the tournament as two of the hottest teams in the country. The rest of the bracket is filled with question marks. Do we really know if Steve Alford’s New Mexico team is good? They excelled in a tough Mountain West conference, but they are the biggest mystery in the West region.

We pick the winners from probable matchups after the (second) first-round of the tournament.

Who do you have representing the West in the Final Four? We help you fill out your bracket. Continue reading

2013 March Madness: #2 Ohio State vs #15 Iona

Aaron+Craft+Ohio+State+shirtlessThe #2 Ohio State (26-7) vs. #15 Iona (20-13) game will be a battle of two different offensive styles.

Big Ten basketball is known for a “first team to 50, wins the game” style of basketball. Iona has an offensive philosophy of “we’re trying to score 100 points, as fast as possible.”

Which team will dictate the pace of the game?

“America’s White Boy” favorite Aaron Craft could be this year’s tournament darling. (see: Adam Morrison, Stephen Curry)
