NCAA Tournament Capsules: West Region (2018)

West Region   (1) Xavier (28-5) Xavier is the worst of the #1 seeds and is also the most likely top seed to be eliminated from this tournament before the regional final – most likely by the winner of the Gonzaga vs Ohio State 4-5 match-up. Xavier is still more likely than either of those teams to make the regional …

NCAA Tournament Capsules: South Region (2018)

South Region   (1) Virginia (31-2) Virginia is the consensus #1 team in the nation and the Cavaliers have played better overall than any other team in the nation. However, my issue with Virginia over the years is that they have no room for improvement because their defense can’t get any better than it already is by simply giving more …

2016 NFL Turnover Luck

  Turnovers are one of the most telling statistics in football but turnovers are also highly deceptive. An average team with a turnover margin of +10 would likely make the playoffs with a 10-6 record while an average team with a -10 turnover margin over their 16 game schedule would likely finish with a 6-10 mark. That statement is based …

NCAA Tournament Capsules: South Region (2017)

South Region (1) North Carolina (27-7) There was some discussion as to whether Duke should have received this #1 seed instead of North Carolina because the Blue Devils beat the Tarheels twice, including in the ACC Tournament. But, Duke was lucky to win both games in the form of 52% 3-point shooting to 26% 3-point shooting for UNC. Duke is …

NCAA Tournament Capsules: Midwest Region (2017)

Midwest Region   (1) Kansas (28-4) I wasn’t particularly impressed with Kansas even before they lost to TCU in their opening Big 12 Tournament game. The Jayhawks have been overrated all season (12-18 ATS), and they weren’t particularly great against other really good teams. Kansas did beat Duke by 2 points early in the season, split two games with Iowa …

NCAA Tournament Capsules: East Region (2017)

East Region   (1) Villanova (31-3) Before winning the Championship last season, Villanova had a pattern of underperforming as a high seed in this tournament. In 2015 the #1 seeded Wildcats lost in the 2nd round. In 2014, as a #2 seed, the Cats also lost in the 2nd round, as was the case in 2010. Before last season the …
