March Madness Betting Guide: The First Four

At 6:40 p.m. EST Tuesday, the NCAA Tournament beings -- well, sort of. The First Four tips off in Dayton in its eighth year of existence, featuring the four lowest automatic qualifiers as 16 seeds and the last four at-large teams as 11 seeds. With a lot at stake for these teams to make it to the Round of 64, it gives us an opportunity to get warmed up for the madness and wager some "fun coupons" on the proceedings.

With four games on the slate over Tuesday and Wednesday, let's take a look at our gambling recommendations based off our game projections.
