With March Madness upon us, resident sports betting specialist Trevor Ritchie, host of the Get Ritch with Trevor Ritchie podcast, and I put together our first round best bets, and identified potential second round upset candidates. Some we agree on, and some we don’t, but hey, we’re just giving out information. How you use it, is up to you.
In round one, the goal is to hunt dollars, not game wins. What plays are going to give you the best bang for the buck.
Starting with the Sweet Sixteen, we’ll give you our game by game picks, right through the National Championship on April 5.
