Saturday’s NCAA tournament games were sure to be on just about every sports fans must see list, as the battle for victory in the Elite 8 began with a showdown between 4 top seeded teams. It has certainly been a great tournament thus far, even if there has not been the usual Cinderella story team making it deep into March Madness, and busting everyone’s brackets in the process. However, it is probably true for most bracket-betting fans that, with the relative stability of top seeded teams, many who felt obligated to pick upsets along the way have been disappointed in doing so. I for one have certainly been one of those fans, and have seen a number of potential March Madness upsets go down in flames while more and more lower seeds dropped like flies from the tournament. That being said, this has taken nothing away from the exciting action on court, or in our featured sportsbooks at www.CasinoReview.org. Placing at least a few online wagers in each of the tournament rounds so far has left me hanging on the edge of my seat, and I have certainly been fortunate to break a little more than even in this March Madness season.
Saturday’s games, featuring two number one seeds against two number two seeds, found me heading over to www.Sportsbook.com to place wagers on the day’s action. The two games, of which both should have been well contested match-ups, both end with double digit margins of victory for the winning teams. I was fortunate enough to win both wagers placed, betting first on Ohio State cover the points spread over Memphis, and UCLA to win outright in what was essentially a home-court victory. I am actually quite surprised at the great tournament play exhibited by the UCLA Bruins, who looked shaky in the Conference Championships, but have certainly stepped up their game when all is on the line. Ohio State on the other hand, riding on the powerful presence of the ever-so-talked-about Greg Oden, was expected to get this far, and now has sealed the bid to the Final Four with a dominating and decisive 92-76 win. While it is sad to see good teams like Memphis and Kansas go down, the Final Four is now shaping up to be very exciting indeed.
As Sunday comes around, Oregon vs. Florida and Georgetown vs. North Carolina should be much more closely contested games, and you certainly won’t want to miss out wagering on these Elite 8 match-ups in our featured online sportsbooks. I’m counting down the hours, and placing my bets, hoping that fortune will see to another couple of wins, and possibly more wagering money to be available for what will without a doubt be a great Final Four. Enjoy the rest of the weekends, and thank you again for checking out our featured online sportsbooks and casinos at www.CasinoReview.org.
