Written and authored by NCAA Basketball March Madness Expert Analyst Greg Nelson. Charliessports.com produces it for Basketball news and notes.

2017 March Madness Betting Picks are winning at a winning rate and will continue through the 2017 March Madness Final Game in April.

The 2017 Sweet Sixteen is in place. Three of the Four top seeds will advance. 2016 National Champions Villanova will be sitting at home in Philadelphia instead of New York City, site of the East Semi and finals.

The Wisconsin Badgers upset the top seed Wildcats at Buffalo, New York over the weekend.

The Duke Blue Devils were at a disadvantage playing in Greenville, South Carolina.

The result has the Gamecocks going to the Sweet 16 for the first time in quite some time.

The East Region looks more like a slew of premier football institutes with South Carolina, Florida, Baylor and Wisconsin all invading the Big Apple.

The West has Gonzaga, Arizona, West Virginia and Xavier. West Regional games will take place in San Jose, California and they get started on Thursday.

Mick Cronin and the Xavier Musketeers are the Cinderella story in the bracket. The Musketeers took down Maryland and a talented Florida State team in the first two rounds.

Xavier is also without their best player Edmond Sumner, who is out for the rest of the season with a severe knee injury. Trevon Blueitt is having his time in the spotlight.

Xavier will take on Arizona, who is the favorite in the contest. However, the Musketeers are a gritty Big East team, used to playing the underdog role.

Xavier will not be intimidated; they beat Florida State in Orlando. The one seed Gonzaga Bulldogs will have their hands full with a very tough West Virginia Mountaineers team.

Head Coach Bob Huggins has West Virginia playing their best basketball of the season.

Bovada. Lv list Xavier at +25,000 to win the 2017 NCAA Tournament, West Virginia at +2,800, Arizona +1,800, and Gonzaga+900.

The storyline of the 2017 March Madness Basketball Tournament this past weekend was the Atlantic Coast Conference.

All season we listened to the analyst on various Television, as well as radio shows, talk about how great the ACC is.

However, the North Carolina Tar Heels are the only team from the conference left in the NCAA Tournament. Making matter worse it took a late surge for the Tar Heels to get past Arkansas to advance.

The Big Ten Conference has three teams left, Xavier and Butler are the only teams from the Big East left and the SEC “FLEXED THEIR MUSCLE” with Kentucky, South Carolina and Florida representing the Football first Conference.

Baylor, Kansas, and West Virginia showed the nation how great the Big Twelve Conference is playing basketball.

Charliessports.com believes the Sweet Sixteen will be just an exciting to fans like the past weekend.

NCAA Basketball Conference Tournament ATS Picks and, Odds: Pittsburgh Panthers vs. Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets.

Written and authored by NCAA Basketball March Madness Expert Analyst Al Presto. Charliessports.com produces it for Basketball news and notes.

Our 500-star NCAA Basketball Tournament Point Spread Predictions are winning at an unbelievable rate and will continue into the 2017 NCAA Basketball March Madness Finals in April.

The (15-16) Pitt Panthers of the Atlantic Coast Conference will make the trip to the “EMPIRE STATE” for their first round ACC Conference Tournament matchup.

Pittsburgh takes on the (17-14) Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets also of the ACC in 2017 NCAA Basketball Tournament action.

Tip-off is 7:00 PM EST on the ESPNU Television Network. The game is on Tuesday. March 7, 2017.

Teams will play at the Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn, New York.

The best Sports Handicapper believes the Pittsburgh Panthers have had a tough time in the first season of Head Coach Kevin Stallings. The Panthers are struggling in 2017 after years of winning with Jamie Dixon on the sidelines.

Georgia Tech Yellow  must advance to at least the ACC Tournament Semi-finals to get in the 2017 NCAA March Madness Tournament.

If the “RAMBLIN WRECK” advances they will face an excellent Virginia basketball team.

The Opening Betting Line has the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets as a One-Point Underdog Against The Point Spread. The Betting Odds Total is 129-Points for Tuesday’s contest.

The Pittsburgh Panthers won just four games in ACC action this season and finished next to the last place.

However, the Panthers will have plenty of fans in the stands Tuesday in Brooklyn. Pitt lost badly in their regular season finale at Virginia last Saturday. March, 4th.

Pittsburgh is also on a four-game losing streak going into the ACC Tournament and are also 0-3 ATS their last three.

Senior Forwards Michael Young and Jamel Artis put up nearly forty points per contest for the Panthers on offense, which is almost fifty percent of the team’s points per game.

Stallings must hit the recruiting trail this summer. The former Vanderbilt head coach has access to some of the best talent in the nation. Stallings brought sufficient talent to Vanderbilt, and there is no way he can’t do the same thing at an ACC Institute.

The key to a Pittsburgh victory is to push the basketball at a fanatic pace and not allowing Georgia Tech to set their defense.

Bovada.Lv, list the Pittsburgh Panthers at +10,000 to win the 2017 Atlantic Coast Conference Basketball Tournament Championship.

The 2017 Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets have dropped four of their last six basketball contests.

Georgia Tech also has watched their March Madness Tournament chances fade away. However, a win Tuesday and an upset of Virginia in the next round will turn heads.

First Year Head Coach Josh Pastner is doing an adequate job in his first season. Pastner comes over from Memphis and must tap into the talent in the “PEACH STATE” to make his program into one of the elites in the ACC.

Georgia Tech has covered the point spread the last six times the teams have met, including a 61-52 victory this season. Georgia Tech has quality wins over North Carolina, Florida State, and Notre Dame this season.

Inconsistency has been an issue on the court for the Yellow Jackets this season.

Freshman Guard Josh Okogie is the team’s leading scorer, but Junior Center Ben Lammers is their best player at both ends of the court.

The key to a Georgia Tech victory is to dominate the post and be patient on offense.

Bovada.Lv, list the 2017 Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets at +10,000 to win the ACC Tournament Crown.

he city of Indianapolis is full of talented high schoolers, and Crean must tap into the pool.

The Butler Bulldogs have taken over as the top College Basketball program in the Central part of the state, and it is not sitting well with Hoosier fans.
