Its #1′s vs. #3′s in this year’s NCAA …

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 though once again the tournament has been slimmed of all low seeded teams. 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 that #10 Davidson is still in), or in our top sportsbooks at featured at 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 three seeds, found me heading over to (read the review of 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 UCLA to cover the points spread over Xavier (who should have already lost!), and UNC to win outright in what was essentially a home-court victory. I am surprised the relatively easy run the UCLA Bruins have had to this point, as they did look a little shaky in the Conference Championships. That said, with Kevin Love healthy and shoring up the middle for the Bruins, they are certainly tough. In the other game today, I look for Tyler Hansbrough to put up big points and carry his #1 seed, #1 overall North Carolina Tarheels over the Louisville Cardinals. Good times.

As Sunday comes around, Kansas vs. Davidson and Texas at Memphis should be very exciting games, and you certainly won’t want to miss out wagering on these Elite 8 match-ups in our best online sportsbooks reviewed here.. 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.
