March Madness 2009 will also see Tulsa, UAB, Houston, and UTEP as potential March Madness betting commodities that could pay. March Madness 2009 starts with the runner up from 2008 March Madness betting as the Memphis Tigers again dominated Conference USA play this year.
What may surprise March Madness 2009 handicappers is that Memphis actually was a better board value this year than was the case during their undefeated run in 2008. Memphis finished regular season action 28-3 straight up, including a perfect 16-0 in conference action.
The Tigers have strong March Madness 2009 credentials as they went 20-10 against the spread this year for one of the most profitable records in the nation. They also may be a strong March Madness 2009 over/under team as the Tigers posted a mark of 10-19 under the total during the regular season this year.
While Memphis is no doubt the cream of the crop from Conference USA the Tulsa Golden Hurricane may turn out to be a surprise team in March Madness 2009. Tulsa had a strong 22-9 straight up record although their board value was not great at 12-13 against the spread.
Still, should Tulsa “dance” they will likely be operating under the March Madness betting radar screen against better known opponents. Alabama Birmingham carries some respect entering March Madness 2009 as the Blazers have always been one of the better teams from Conference USA.
That being said UAB has not impressed March Madness 2009 handicappers with their record of 14-16 against the spread despite going 21-10 straight up.
The Houston Cougars have strong March Madness 2009 “dance” credentials as well as they had a straight up record of 20-10 but, like Tulsa and UAB, that did not translate into board value as they went just 11-15-1 against the spread.
Texas El Paso impressed March Madness 2009 fans with a mark of 16-10-1 against the spread and a straight up mark of 19-11, which will merit consideration. The aforementioned teams are worth a strong look for value oriented gamblers!
