Available now for free download now at http://foxsheets.statfoxsports.com/FreeTourneyGuide.aspx is the 11th annual edition of the StatFox Edge College Basketball Tournament Handicapping Guide, the publication about which renowned oddsmaker Danny Sheridan proclaimed, “Anyone serious about their brackets or tournament handicapping should be sure to pick up a Tournament Guide from StatFox.com . . . nothing I’ve seen beats it.”
While it’s certainly great to have such a respected handicapper as Mr. Sheridan singing our praises, our past results are what speak most loudly. Seven of the eight brackets that appeared in last year’s Tournament Guide had Gonzaga reaching the title game, with two of the brackets correctly picking North Carolina to beat Gonzaga in the NCAA Tournament final.
This year's StatFox Edge College Basketball Tournament Handicapping Guide is back with all of the popular pieces to which readers have become accustomed. You’ll find our annual “Shared Traits of Champions” article, as well as the “Eventual Champion Qualifiers” chart. Those of you who are Platinum Sheet readers will be happy to see that for the fifth straight year we’ve included complete brackets from all five of our Platinum Sheet staff pickers. Those picks are preceded by our strength indicator brackets, each of which again appears on a self-contained bracket. Following our eight brackets is our popular annual “Trend Madness” feature, which breaks down everything you would possibly want to know when it comes to the history of the Tournament. Then we have team-by-team breakdowns, separated into regions, so that you can get a feel for teams’ relative strengths before determining who’s capable of pulling off this year’s big upsets.
From all of us here at StatFox, best of luck for an enjoyable and profitable 2018 Tournament!
