Bracket Tactics: Saturday's Tip of the Day

    
March 15th, 2008

Leading up to the 2008 NCAA Tournament, we'll be presenting daily tips to help you fill in your bracket. 

Today's Bracket Tactic

 

FACT: The last time that both teams in a title game were making their first-ever appearances in a Final 4 was 1945 (when Oklahoma A&M played NYU).
BRACKET TIP: If you pick Butler, Clemson, Gonzaga, Tennessee, Vanderbilt, or Xavier to play in the title game, then make sure you have them facing off against a team that has previously been to a Final 4. 

 

Today's tip from the editor: One seeds tend to be the real deal.. substantially bigger locks than any other seed. No matter how overrated you think Memphis is, there's historically been an 86% chance that they at least make the 3rd round.
