What a way to start the NCAA Tournament. We were less than a half a day into the tournament and two #3 seeds were gone. Second Round action saw #1 seed Villanova and a pair of #2 seeds take an early exit. After Selection Sunday one of the teams that many said shouldn’t have gotten the invite was the UCLA Bruins. Now here they are sitting in the Sweet Sixteen. Not only did we have upsets. We also saw a record number of round one tight games. 10 games ended with a 3 point or less differentials including 5 one-point games. Besides the Cinderella stories and tight games we also have some of the big boys showing off their dominance. Kentucky and Duke won both their games easily by double digits. Wisconsin struggled a bit in Round 2 versus Oregon but still managed to win by 7. There are still a pair of #2s (Arizona & Gonzaga) and #3s (Notre Dame & Oklahoma) out their that can do plenty of damage. So what do the odds look like now?

At the beginning of the season we had the usual talk. A certain team is loaded, can they go all the way and complete the perfect season. This year the team was, the Kentucky Wildcats. John Calipari had put together the top recruiting class in the country full of McDonald All-Americans to go along with a group of experienced players that may a Cinderella run to the NCAA Championship game last year. So would this be the perfect combo to match what the 1975-76 Indiana Hoosiers were the last to do, run the table to an undefeated season? So now as we enter the NCAA Tourney the Wildcats sit at 34-0 and with 6 games away from cutting down the nets in Indianapolis, the end is in site. Still I believe the hardest part is still ahead of them. So many things make it tough. So what could stop them? Who could stop them? What are the odds that they will do it?

So here we go. Pretty much everyone has filled out their resume to get their invites. We have the final weekend of action and then the Conference Tournaments to play, but for most teams the idea of being in or out have been decided. The only thing that now comes into play is the Cinderella factor. Who and how many Conference Champions will be unexpected. How many of those last spots will be taken by unexpected and uninvited guests. Now as I said at the being “Most” teams have been decided. We still have a few bubble teams battling and we also have a fight for the 4 #1 seeds. So lets take a look at how things come into play as we head into the final weekend of the regular season and the conference tourneys.

OK to those of you that were expecting this week’s NCAA Bubble watch, I have postponed it. We will have that back again next week. At that time things will really start shaping up for the Big Dance. Istead this week I wanted to give you my first edition of the Razor Sharp NFL Mock Draft. We have gotten thru the NFL combines and things have started to play out for this springs draft. I will come with a second and final edition a week before the draft but lets give you a quick look at how things are looking so far.

Every week gets us closer to the big dance. Every dance it seems the dance card continues to change. Last week we listed 9 teams that were right on the bubble to either make it or be left out of the field of 68. It seemed the pressure of the bubble did not get positive reactions from many. Of the 9 teams we talked about only Miami-FL we able to go the next week without a loss. We already had them in and that will secure their position. They take on Louisville this weekend and a win their could almost lock them up for an invite. On the other side of the spectrum we had 2 of our teams that lost twice last week. Old Dominion went 1-2 and Seton Hall dropped 2 games bringing their losing streak to 5 straight. Both of those teams were already on the outside looking in and now really have their work cut out for them to get the invite they want. 2 of the teams that we had on the bubble played each other with UCLA taking down Oregon. Last week we had Oregon In and UCLA Out. Oregon still has a better record but head-to-head bumps the Bruins up. So who are the teams on the bubble now after last weeks action? Lets take a look.

It is that time of the year. We are just about 1 month away from Selection Sunday for the NCAA Tournament. With the football season over, it is time to start talking about Bracketology and Bubble teams. What happens over the next month will make all the difference come Selection Sunday. Over the next 4 weeks I will try to help break down what is going on. Each week I will list who I think will be the four #1 seeds. More importantly I will list the bubble teams on who is going to get in and who is out. I will look at records, conference strength, big wins and strength rankings. Let’s take a look.

OK, so I know that when the pitchers and catcher start reporting to Spring Training in exactly 2 weeks (Feb 19th) that the snow won’t magically disappear here in the North! I know that in 26 days when the first 10 teams play their first spring training game that is is time to break out the shorts and shades on the east coast. And even though we are exactly 2 months away (April 5th Cardinals vs. Cubs) from opening night, we won’t have to break out the sunscreen to sit out in the bleachers at Wrigley for the game. Still after a long cold winter it is always nice to think spring or even summer with the Boys of Summer getting ready to play ball. So with that being said, what should we expect this summer, who are the surprises and who are the new faces in new places. Let’s take a look.

The biggest single sporting event of the year is by far the Super Bowl and one of the biggest proofs of that is what Vegas does with it. Everyone has seen some Super Bowl proposition bets. From 1st half lines to total first downs to the first holding penalty. But it isn’t just those. As a matter of fact, in my 20+ years in this business I have seen this segment of the game grow and grow. For years, Freeplays.com has put together a compilation of these Super Bowl Props. They used to put together 10-15 pages of about 150 Super Bowl props and sold them. But where does it end. It kept growing and growing. The number of props is almost endless, so instead of putting out more and charging more, Freeplays.com decided to cut it down to about the 50 main props and make it free to everyone on their page. These should be up by Tuesday evening or Wednesday morning. Still as I mentioned before there are so many props out there. I wanted to let you know how crazy they can get. So here are the funniest, wildest props that I could find on this Sunday’s Big Game!

With a week and a half before we all focus on Arizona for Super Bowl 49 it is time to start collecting and compiling our Super Bowl Prop Odds. Like we did last year we aren’t going to have as many as we have had in the past but we will offer what we do put together for free. These Props should be up and ready by next Tuesday.  I know there are some props up already but we will wait to get a bunch ready and make sure the odds are correct and even been adjusted. So for some of you that have never played the Super Bowl Props, are they worth the time and effort that have been put into compiling them and figuring out what to play? My answer is Yes, and let me tell you why.
