Bracket Tactics: Wednesday Night's Tip

March 19th, 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: While #7 seeds are 57-35 vs. #10 seeds in the 1st round since 1985, #10 seeds have had much more success against #2 seeds in the 2nd round: #10 seeds are 17-18 in the 2nd round during that time (including an average of 1 upset win per year over the past 11 years), while #7 seeds are only 17-40 in the 2nd round over the same time period.

BRACKET TIP: Pick two or three #7 seeds to win in the 1st round, but try to find one #10 seed who can make it all the way to the Sweet 16.


Editor's Follow Up: Based on Jon's tip today.. the best bet for a 10 seed advancing beyond the first round would probably be Davidson or Arizona
