More Sweet 16 NCAA tournament games for Friday

For an avid sports fan, this time of year is awfully hard to beat, and I for one just can’t get enough of all the great sports action taking place from the NCAA tournament, to the NBA and NHL which are rapidly coming up on the postseason. No matter what your passion for sports is, you can guarantee that March is one of the best times of year to place a few wagers and check out some great match-ups around the sports world. Even the prospect of Major League Baseball just around the corner has sports fans scrambling to put together fantasy leagues, and prepare for yet another 162 game season with thousands of potential wagers to be placed in our featured online sportsbooks. While I wasn’t as successful as I has hoped in picking upsets in the NCAA tournament yesterday (S. Illinois just barely got beat, as did Tennessee, crushing my sportsbook wagers for the day), today is yet another great day for sportsbook wagering, and I will no doubt be placing a few more notes down for today’s match-ups. Fridays are always great days based on the fact that there isn’t more pointless work to be done, and with NCAA basketball in action, it is without a doubt one very good Friday indeed.

My overall pick to win the NCAA Tournament, Georgetown, is in action today, and I’ve been glued to every game of theirs as my college hoops brackets pretty much depend on them at least getting to the title game. They have a tough fight ahead for Friday night against a strong Vanderbilt ball club however, by placing a wager on the Hoyas to win today, hopefully they can set me straight from the chunk of change I just missed out on last night. Taking a straight up wager at, I hope that John Thompson and Patrick Ewing Jr. can lead Georgetown back into the elite status they maintained just a few short years ago. You can be certain that of these guys, with former Hoya fathers will be looking on in anticipation, just as I will. They could certainly make a little piece of history as the only father and son to reach the final four as head coaches, let alone for the same team.

Also in action today, there will be an exciting match-up between USC and UNC, with the Trojans being a very surprising addition to the Sweet 16. I would count on Florida and Oregon to win their games against Butler and UNLV respectively, especially as there have been so few upsets coming from teams that are seeded anymore than one or two slots down from their opponents. However, stranger things have, and do happen, so look out for more potential upsets on Friday night. I’m excited and I hope you are as well for a great upcoming series of college hoops. Thank you again for checking in to, and most importantly for wagering in our featured online sportsbooks and casinos. Until next time, have a great weekend and good luck in every wager placed this week.
