All athletes are humans and, as such, they can fail or surprise us at any time and this leads us to have to consider the underdogs when we place our wagers. If you want to be like us and have all basis covered, then you need to be aware of the favorites and underdogs you should know for March Madness.
Underdog – Tacko Fall, University of Central Florida
This athlete is 7.6ft tall, making him the tallest basketball player existing right now and he has a set of skills to match his unique name and impressive height. Additionally, UCF has been making a big comeback as a team and in combination with this young star’s skills, it becomes an underdog to watch out.
Underdog – Fletcher Magee, Wofford College
It would be a mistake failing to mention this player who hasn’t seen defeat throughout the whole of 2019 with his team. This bodes well for this underdog who has scored more than 2,000 points and everybody’s talking about how they could be the big March Madness surprise.
Favorite – Duke Blue Devils
This team and its coaches are favorites and famous all across the country and for good reason, as they have the best players, such as Zion Williamson. Coach K. has 5 national championships under his belt and the referees also seem to favor the team.
Favorite – University of Virginia
These guys have been through the wringer, with how badly they lost to a #16 seed, even though their team is made up of outstanding players. But you need to keep a close eye on them as they will be striving for redemption and that makes them true favorites.
Keep these underdogs and favorites in mind when you place your wagers for next March Madness and you are guaranteed to make more accurate predictions.
