Tuley's Takes on Sweet 16: Two big dogs worth backing

March 22, 2022 08:00 PM

We have a saying here in the Tuley’s Takes home office: March Madness never fails when it comes to entertainment value, even if it fails our brackets and wallets.

We’ve had some great March Madness runs, but most years are like this where we had a lot more success in the conference tournaments the two weeks before the Big Dance. We went 2-2 ATS with our daily Best Bets in our “Tuley’s Takes Today” column at as we lost with Boise State on Thursday, won with Colgate and Memphis on Friday and Saturday, then lost with Illinois on Sunday. Our secondary plays were worse at 2-5 ATS, which was disappointing as underdogs ended up going 27-21 ATS (56.3 percent) for the four days. I did have some other winners — Saint Peter’s vs. Kentucky, Notre Dame vs. Alabama, Creighton vs. Kansas and Iowa State vs. Wisconsin were the highlights — but it was definitely a losing weekend for yours truly, especially when including my woeful brackets, which were crippled when Iowa lost to Richmond early Thursday (wish I had hedged with Richmond + 10 or + 400 on the moneyline) and then officially dead when Kentucky was shocked by Saint Peter’s later that night, though at least I had Saint Peter’s + 18.5, but unfortunately not + 1500 on the moneyline.

But overall it was a fun time with friends who were in town for all the action. Can’t wait for opening weekend next year, but first, we have work to do with the Sweet 16.
