Get ready for buzzer beaters, shocking wins, upsets, and busted brackets. It’s that time of year again and this year should be an exciting one. March Madness is one of the most anticipated and exciting times of the year.

March Madness 2018 is the year of revenge, comebacks and some upsets. There are 64 teams that have a shot at the national championship game. Each team is put into a region: Midwest, South, East, or West and is then seeded 1-16 based on regular season record and performance, and  strength of schedule.

On local terms, Michigan and Michigan State are in the tournament. The Spartans are a #3 seed in the Midwest region while the Wolverines are also a #3 seed in the West region. Both teams are expected to go far in the tournament and MSU is a heavy favorite to win it all this year.

While the pool of 64 teams is playing to advance to the next round, fans are playing and betting on brackets and seeing if their bracket is the best. Betting is so popular because we all know that there rarely ever is a “perfect” bracket. With upsets, small schools and bracket busting teams, this March should be a fun one.
