2024 March Madness Profitable Betting Picks

By Hank Blaine

When filling out your brackets, it’s usually a promising idea to back teams that played well towards the end of the regular season and in their conference tournament instead of backing teams that played well at the beginning of the season. With that being written, it’s time to unveil six NCAA Tournament betting picks that could get it done once March Madness begins. See below for the super six to keep an eye on heading into the 2024 NCAA Men’s College Basketball Tournament.

Six Teams That Are Peaking as Profitable 2024 March Madness Betting Picks

Iowa State Cyclones

Iowa State dominant performance of the Houston Cougars leaves no doubt that the Big 12 Tournament champs are ready for the NCAA Tournament.

The Cyclones held Houston to 41 points while dropping 69. It wasn’t just a victory over a rival. It was an absolute whipping of one of the top defensive teams in the nation.

Hason Ward scored 13 points in 13 minutes. Ward is the key. If the senior can pick it up off the bench in the tournament, watch for the Cyclones to make a Final Four run.

UConn Huskies

For the first time since 2011, the Houston Cougars won the Big East Tournament. It sounds crazy, we know, but the defending NCAA Tournament Champions, and one of the most successful blue bloods in college hoops, hadn’t taken a conference title in over 10 seasons.

So it makes sense that the favorites to win it all would be on this list. Don’t worry about odds when it comes to Dan Hurley’s team. Hurley is Coach K incarnate. His team plays with a cohesiveness that would make NBA teams blush. Give the Huskies the nod to make the Final Four for sure.

North Carolina Tar Heels

Yes, the Heels fell to the North Carolina State Wolfpack in the ACC Tournament Final. But UNC was due for a letdown after a terrific 8-game stretch where they beat Virginia, Miami, NC State, Duke, and Florida State.

UNC’s loss to NC State is one of those good losses, meaning Hubert Davis’s bunch can relax until this coming Thursday or Friday before they pounce on their first round opponent. The Heels are legit this season and looking to make amends for a less than stellar 2023 tournament performance.

Auburn Tigers

Before the SEC Tournament Final against Florida, Auburn had won 5-of-6 with the loss during the stretch coming against then 4-Tennessee on the road.

The Tigers beat ranked South Carolina and Mississippi State twice during that span. Head coach Bruce Pearl is one of the most underrated hoops coaches in the nation. Pearl knows how to get his teams to peak during the tournament, which makes the Tigers one of the SEC’s top chances to score a Final Four berth.

Marquette Golden Eagles

Unless the Golden Eagles run into the UConn Huskies in the tournament, Marquette is going to have a great shot of making it to the Final Four. UConn is 3-0 versus Marquette this season.

Early in the season, Marquette lost to Purdue by 3, beat Illinois, and beat then 1-Kansas. The Golden Eagles can hang with anyone and finished the regular season and Big East Tournament blasting their opponents. Well, until they ended up throwing down against UConn in the final.

Tennessee Volunteers

Yes, the Vols head to the NCAA Tournament off two straight losses versus Kentucky and Mississippi State, but Tennessee had seven straight before the losses.

During the seven game winning streak, the Volunteers beat ranked Auburn, ranked Alabama, and ranked South Carolina. The Vols will regroup before their first round game, which makes Tennessee one of the hot teams heading into the 2024 March Madness Tournament.
