March Madness 2009 handicappers should realize, however, that the best time to take March Madness betting powers is often when they are dogs! March Madness 2009 will have plenty of powerful big name teams that could bring their best March Madness betting value as pups.
A great example would be perennial powerhouse and public favorite North Carolina. It’s rare that the Tar Heels are an underdog but it could happen in the later rounds of March Madness 2009. If so, keep in mind the Tar Heels were 2-0 against the spread this season getting points.
ACC runner up Wake Forest was 5-1 against the spread as a dog while Duke will be another potential power dog in March Madness 2009 with a record of 2-1 against the board this year as an underdog.
The Big East will be considered one of the most powerful conferences entering March Madness 2009 and their best teams have been dangerous dogs this year. Pittsburgh was 2-1 against the spread as a dog while Connecticut was 3-1 against the board when getting points.
Louisville got the cash all 3 times that they were pups. The Big Ten has its share of powerful puppies entering March Madness 2009 action as Michigan State, always a March Madness betting favorite with the masses, was 2-1 against the spread when getting points.
Illinois looks to be an even more dangerous dog for March Madness 2009 as they got the cash 5 out of 7 times as a pooch. Pac 10 regular season leader Washington will be another strong March Madness 2009 candidate as a dog as they got the cash 3 out of 4 times this year when getting points.
Northern Iowa, winner of the Missouri Valley, was a most dangerous 10-4 against the spread as a dog and will likely be getting points in all of their March Madness 2009 appearances. If March Madness 2009 is like any other year there will be plenty of upsets and power teams that end up getting points.
Those who are patient enough to wait before “turning on the power” could end up being quite happy at doing so!
