    Championship Week – which teams will win automatic bids to the NCAA tournament? We simulated each conference tournament to find out.


     
    Conference tournaments are the unofficial start of March Madness. Over the next two weeks, single-elimination tournaments will be played with automatic bids to the NCAA tournament at stake.
     
    We have simulated each conference tournament using our Bracket Simulator to predict which teams will punch their ticket to the Big Dance. The Bracket Simulator is a free tool that gives you the power to simulate the postseason for any sport. Create your own bracket now!
     
    PredictionMachine.com has been very profitable in conference tournaments. All-time on the site, "normal" or better conference tournament picks are 84-54 (61% ATS and O/U), through 2013. For access to conference tournament picks, click here.
     
    When: March 13-16
     
    Where: Indianapolis, IN
     
    The automatic bid goes to: Michigan (28.2%)
     
    There isn’t much that separates the Wolverines from the Badgers or the other top teams in the conference, yet Michigan repeatedly found a way to best the conference during the regular season. John Beilein coached his team to a Final Four last year, a Big 10 title might be the first step in the same direction this year.
     
    And if they lose: Wisconsin (20.3%)
     
    The Badgers have an outside shot at a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament with non-conference wins against Florida, St. Louis, and Virginia. A Big 10 Tournament championship might be enough to earn that No. 1 seed.
     
    Bid Thief:
     
    Purdue: The Boilermakers are dead last in the Big 10, if they are going to participate in March Madness they will need to earn the conference’s automatic bid. After the big boys, Purdue’s odds are the best of the rest.

    08/09/2017 Highlight: Football season is slowly approaching and as we use our ResultsFinder tool to look back on previous seasons, we can see that ATS picks in the NFL regular season have topped 56% ATS four times in seven years, and have been profitable in all but one season on the site. NFL Playoff picks are also a stellar 50-25 (67% ATS) in our history.

    In college football, "normal" or better totals are 58% all-time and have been profitable in five of the previous seven years. Meanwhile, our strongest ATS pick each week in college football is 69-40 (63% ATS) all-time. With college football season win totals being posted this week, we can also note that last season, playable win total picks in went 28-19 (60% O/U) to turn a profit of $899 for a normal $50 player using our play value recommendations.

    MLB picks have been on a tear for upwards of a month, with our models generating $742 in total profits on ML and RL picks since the beginning of July. "Normal" or better ML and RL plays in that same stretch are a commendable 20-11 (64.5%), producing $331 in profits for an average $50 bettor.
