Tuley's Takes for NCAA Round 1


We hope everyone is enjoying March Madness like we are here in the Tuley’s Takes home office. Of course, how could you not be thrilled after we were all deprived of the NCAA Tournament last year?

My enthusiasm was tempered a little bit last week during Championship Week as our recommended plays were barely profitable at 4-3 ATS (but a profit is a profit). The disappointment was that several of the teams we were planning to back lost their preliminary games before they went against the teams we were expecting them to face — Xavier, Marquette, Stanford, Kentucky, SMU, Boise State and UCLA, plus Duke due to COVID-19 issues. There’s part of me that feels I made bad calls with those teams as they might not have come through as underdogs in the subsequent rounds if they weren’t able to win as favorites. However, I choose to credit the dog-or-pass approach for passing on them in those supposedly easier matchups. And the fact they flamed out early saved us money.
