I'm an NFL handicapper here at Pickswise who was raised in a household full of sports fanatics. Since I unfortunately never had LeBron James' jumping ability I wasn't able to make it to the NBA, and chose writing about sports as the next best thing. An avid sports bettor myself, I'm excited to get to write about the industry as it gets set to take off across the country. Buckle up. For Andrew Ortenberg media enquiries, please email

With the regular season over, March Madness is right around the corner. It’s one of the best events in all of sports, and a godsend for bettors. The first weekend of the NCAA Tournament is especially fun to wager on, and as the tourney gets closer we’ll be bringing you everything you need to get ready. We’ll be taking a look at all of the teams one by one, and today we’re breaking down the top squad in the Atlantic 10, the St. Bonaventure Bonnies.

St. Bonaventure Bonnies prospects

St. Bonaventure was clearly the best team in the Atlantic 10 this year. They were really great on defense, ranking 19th overall in defensive efficiency per Kenpom. They’ve got the kind of experience you look for in March, as each of their five starters are juniors. They’ve got good length, as each of those five starters and every player in their rotation are at least 6’3. They’re also well balanced on offense, as all five starters average between 10.5 and 14.6 points per game. They’ve got LSU in the first round, an LSU team led by two underclassmen. Might their experience give them an edge? We sure think so.
