Champ Week Free Betting Picks: Save The Last Dance

Champ Week has arrived. Watch some of the most frantic action in all of sports during the NCAA Conference Tournaments. We are looking forward to the action in ALL of the conference tournaments, and have some picks for a trio of them.


The MACtion will take place from Cleveland, Ohio with Buffalo as the top seed in the tournament. The action begins on Monday with eight teams playing. The tournament sees a total of 12 teams with the Huskies of Northern Illinois being the 12th and final team.

This tournament has its title game on Saturday, and the two teams we expect to be there are the top two teams in the league. Buffalo will have quite an interesting affair with the 4th seeded Ball State Cardinals. Toledo and Eastern Michigan should have quite the battle.

But, when push comes to shove, the top two teams in the league should be the two teams playing in the MAC title game. Our betting pick for the MAC title is the 2nd seeded Eagles to take down the Buffalo Bulls and head to the Big Dance.

Mountain West

The Thomas + Mack Center in Las Vegas will be rocking this week for the Mountain West Conference Tournament.  The Wolf Pack of Nevada are the favorite, but as Saturday night showed with the San Diego State Aztecs beating them - it's anyone's league.

The Wolf Pack should be an at-large bid into the tournament with everyone else playing for their dancing lives. The Boise State Broncos and New Mexico Lobos both are playing good basketball. In fact, the Aztecs of San Diego State are the hottest team.

The Aztecs have a 15% chance of winning the title. We like their chances. They have an ultra competitive team spirit and have Malik Pope back in action. Look for them to take down Nevada early in the tournament, and get a shot at Boise State in the finals.

While the Broncos have 23 wins, they are going to fall short in the MWC title game. In a surprise - we are taking the San Diego State Aztecs to be the Cinderella and go dancing into the NCAA Tournament as the winner of the MWC.


Sean Miller and his Arizona Wildcats are the favorites out of the Pac-12. What an interesting story they will be as the NCAA Tournament rolls along. The Wildcats are 24-7 on the season. In fact, there are 6 teams in the Pac-12 with 20+ wins.

As far as teams heading to the Big Dance, many only have 3 or 4 locks, with teams like USC, UCLA and Washington on the bubble. There is a ton to play for in this tournament The problem is - Arizona is playing with a little more clear heads lately, and have the most talent in this tournament.

UCLA got the short end of the stick grabbing the Wildcats in the Final 4, which will be an interesting affair. On the other side - USC and Utah are the teams to beat, but look out for Dana Altman's Oregon Ducks. The Ducks have been there and done that in the tournament and will not be an easy team to eliminate this season.

Look for Oregon to get all the way to the MVC title game, but Arizona takes them done. Bet on the Wildcats to win the Pac-12 title.

There is a look at a trio of Conference Tournaments. It should be a great week of College Basketball. Enjoy the action, and best of luck!
