3 Misconceptions About the MLB Playoff Games

2016PostseasonIt’s baseball season, and just as it happens every year, people are making bets on teams based on some misconceptions that have been around as long as baseball itself. But the truth is, the facts and the history of the game easily proves many of these misconceptions wrong.

Before you make a bet on an MLB playoff game, read these myth busters and then make your best bet.

Hurry! Get Your MLB Playoff Tickets While You Still Can!

There is No Home Court Advantage

Surely you’ve heard that teams in the playoffs that play on their own home turf do better, right?  In fact, it’s one of the most common misconceptions out there when it comes to choosing winning MLB playoff teams.

The Facts: For the past ten years, homes teams playing in “ultimate games,” (the final game in the wild card series, game 5 of a division series, or the 7th game in theLCS or World Series), have lost more than they’ve won. In fact, those teams have gone 11-6.

The Takeaway: The home court advantage is not a reason to bet on a team. Even though it makes sense that the team with the most support from local fans would win, it doesn’t seem to matter.

The Best Team Doesn’t Always Win

Come on, admit it—you tend to choose the team that has the best chance for winning based on who has the best record of the season, don’t you? Well, if you do, you should know that you’re in great company. That is a myth that has stuck around for a long time, but unfortunately, the stats just don’t back it up.

The Facts: The truth is that since 1995, when the wild card playoffs began, only 4 in 21 teams with the best season record have won the playoffs. Those teams are the Yankees in 2009, the Rod Sox and the Cardinals in 2007 when they tied, and the Yankees in 1998. In fact, the Cardinals won in 2006, 2011, and 2014, and each of those years they had the worst record of the season.

The Takeaway: You can’t place your bets by a team’s season record, either.

A Team’s Beginning Performance Doesn’t Always Matter

Finally, many people choose their winning teams by taking into consideration how well the team did the in the beginning of the season. You’ll often find people justifying their pick by rattling off the teams stats in early season, and then using that great start to predict a team will win. For instance, last year the Red Sox won eleven games in a row in September and many people pegged them as the winner. But the team lost 5 of the 6 final games.

The Facts: The past ten World Series champions played the same throughout the season, not only in the beginning or the end of the games.

The Takeaway: Don’t look for teams that are on a hot streak, or play better in the beginning or end of the season. Instead, look for those teams that play consistently well throughout the season.

NBA Conference Finals Are Hitting All the Marks

nbaIf you’re an NBA fan, it doesn’t get a whole lot better than this year. The Division finals are just wrapping up, but the 2016 NBA playoffs have already thrown fans a few unexpected curves – and some of the best b-ball seen on the court in years. As the brackets fill up for the finals, we’re seeing lots of action on NBA Conference Finals tickets, both on the East Coast and the West Coast – and it’s easy to understand why. Just take a look at what we’ve seen so far.

Golden Warriors Tickets Western Conference Finals Tickets – We Got Them!

Warriors fans have known since February that their boys had a playoff berth, and since March, when the Clippers dropped a game to the Cleveland Cavaliers, that they had the Pacific Division title. That makes back-to-back division wins for the Golden State Warriors, a feat they haven’t pulled off since the 1974-75 season. That wasn’t enough for Golden State, though – they had their eyes set on breaking a long-standing record. They ticked that goal in April, when Steph Curry led the team to a crushing defeat over Memphis and a record-breaking 73rd regular season win – a record that has stood since Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls knocked off 72 wins in 1995-96. To make it even sweeter, Curry kicked in eight three-pointers to hit 400 for the season, and 41 points to rack up a 30-point season average, breaking even more records. And best of all? It wasn’t supposed to go down this way – all through the winning season, popular sentiment had the Warriors going down in ignoble flames at some point. Instead, they spread their wings and took to the sky, leaving all the other teams in their dust.

OKC Thunder Western Conference Finals Tickets – Got Them, too!

The Warriors aren’t the only Western Conference team to upset expectations, either. Just a week ago, if you’d asked any sports pundit in the know who’d be facing the Warriors in the Conference finals, they wouldn’t have even had to think. It was a given that the San Antonio Spurs were a lock – until they weren’t. In one glorious, hard-slamming, rock-solid game, Oklahoma City brought the Thunder hammer down and took the division championship right out of the Spurs hot little hands – in game 6, yet. The matchup between the Warriors and the Thunder is already being touted as possibly the strongest conference finals series in decades – since 1984, if you believe one of the Internet’s best sports statisticians, and why wouldn’t you? Add to that the fact that OKC vs. Golden State games have been some of the most exciting games to watch during the season, and you know that people are looking for Western Conference NBA tickets.

Check Out Our NBA Eastern Conference Tickets Inventory

Given all that awesomeness – and did we forget to mention Steph Curry’s MVP award, the first-in-history unanimous decision? – in the West, the road to the Eastern Conference Finals may look a little lackluster, but it’s not for lack of trying. That was made more clear than ever when the Miami Heat forced a 7th game (to take place Sunday night in Toronto) against the Raptors. The Heat made headlines and garnered all sorts of jokes about being small – but they turned in a big performance. Odds may be with the Raptors to advance, but after their Friday the 13th win, no one is counting the Heat out yet.

Whether the Heat advance or not, the Eastern Conference title games are also guaranteed to be superb, as both teams have definitely held their own against the Cavs in regular season play.

MLB Ticket News – Five Teams Sweep Up the Weekend – Could It Get Any Better?

1280px-Major_League_Baseball.svg_Wow, what a weekend it was in Major League Baseball! Not too long ago, we were touting the Red Sox-Yankees three-game series this past weekend as must-see baseball, and it was definitely that. Lucky fans with Red Sox tickets got to watch their home team sweep the three-game set in dramatic fashion, with a late-inning homer driving in the deciding runs in two of the three games. It was edge-of-your-seat baseball from the opening pitch to the closing out. The Sox closed out the weekend with a decisive clamp on first place in the American League East, and the satisfaction of cleaning up their first Yankees sweep since 2013. Boston fans know better than to count on early-season wins, but it’s a rare Red Sox booster whose heart isn’t fluttering just a little with the anticipation of watching their boys bring home the pennant.

MLB Tickets for All Upcoming Games

Even if that was the only hot series in the MLB this weekend, it would have been a great baseball weekend, but the Sox weren’t alone in their housekeeping. They were one of five – count ‘em, five – teams that swept their series. That’s pretty impressive, and no one has quite figured out the last time it happened. In addition to the Red Sox, the Nationals, the Tigers, the Phillies and the Rockies all took three of three games to claim sweeps – and each of them had dramatic moments to drive their fans wild.

Of them, the Nationals may have been the most fun to watch this weekend, with Max Scherzer turning in 7 shutout innings against the St. Louis Cardinals. That puts the Nationals at the top of the National League East in the early season standings, which is a nice place to be for a team that’s got the fourth-highest odds of winning the Series this year.

Not too long ago, most folks wouldn’t have given the Phillies any love in terms of Series odds, but this weekend’s sweep of the Cleveland Indians gives them a six-game winning streak, and some serious cred as possible contenders. Not only that, this weekend marks the first time the Phillies have pulled off back-to-back sweeps since 2012, a feat that has home town Phillies fans cheering and hoping.

The Tigers were another team that rallied late to come from behind and cap off a three-game series with a three-run homer and a double that drove in the go-ahead run in the top of the eighth inning in their third game against the Twins. Detroit gets to try to repeat the feat and take some sweet revenge on Cleveland, who swept the Tigers last time they met earlier this month.

Finally, the Rockies, who have been reeling in a slump for the past five games, turned themselves around to take three of three games against the Arizona Diamondbacks at Chase Field. The victories were hard-fought, but Denver squeaked them out, and now has a 5 and 1 record against the D-backs, and a spot in a three-way tie for first place in the National League West.

It’s early days in the season yet, but these drama-filled wins presage a great season for MLB fans everywhere. Keep your eyes on our inventories of MLB tickets and get out to support your hometown boys of summer this year. It’s going to be a great one.

Blues Game 7 Was “Hockey at Its Finest” – Bring On the NHL Western Conference Semifinals

2009-nhl-playoffsNo one expected the St. Louis Blues to do it, but they did. The Blues, widely seen as an underdog in the NHL quarterfinals series about the Chicago Blackhawks, actually started out with a bang, but then they let Chicago come back from a 3-1 series record to tie it up and force a seventh game. Between the back-to-back wins and the Blackhawks’ status as defending Stanley Cup champions, the Blues went into game 7 as the probably-not-gonna-make-it underdogs – and emerged with the Central Division title. Along the way, they gained some pretty serious cred for knocking the defending champions out in the first round of post-season play for the first time since 2012, and played a game that has been widely hailed as “hockey at its finest.” Those are some pretty high accolades for a team that was, just last year, being called “the worst NHL playoff team in history”.

And, to be fair, the moniker was at least semi-deserved if you look at history. The St. Louis Blues were founded in 1967, and ran up three years of losing in the Stanley Cup Finals. Since then, they have not ever made it past the second round of NHL playoffs – and only made it past the first round 18 times. It took an especially bittersweet turn the last two seasons, when the Blues racked up incredible winning seasons, taking or tying their division records – only to choke and get punted out of the playoffs in the first round. It’s no surprise that fans fully expected last night’s game to be the Blues’ swan song appearance for the season.

NHL Playoff Tickets are Available Now. Get Them Here!

But that’s not what happened. After dropping two games in a row to let the Blackhawks smell another Stanley Cup run in the seventh game, the Blues turned it around and delivered a 3-2 win to take the division title – and hopefully, exorcise the curse that has kept them out of the Stanley Cup lineup for 46 years. And it wasn’t just any old win. The morning sports headlines have been blaring about it since the game ended last night. Game 7 was an “instant classic,” “hockey at its finest” and “the kind of game you’ll remember the rest of your life.”

One of the most iconic moments – and the most quintessentially Blues-y – was Troy Brouwer’s first-ever game 7 goal in seven consecutive game 7 appearances. To put it plainly – he almost muffed it. His drive to goal slammed into the post and bounced back out to him – and not only did he whiff the puck, he almost stepped on it and landed on his pads on the ice. In all, Brouwer slapped at the puck three times – but third time’s the charm. That’s the one that slipped past the goalie to light up the score light.

Stanley Cup Playoff Tickets – We’ve Got Them

Back on the bench, teammates and coach nearly had heart attacks. And out on the ice, Robby Fabbri says, he celebrated the goal three times before it actually made it into the net. Brouwer himself told reporters that if he’d missed that shot – with everything riding on it – he might have quit hockey entirely.

Luckily for him, it didn’t come to that. Instead, 11 minutes later, the Blues were celebrating their first advance to the second Conference round in years. They meet the Dallas Stars for the their first post-season matchup since 2001, starting Friday night on Dallas’ home ice.

Great MLB Rivalries Sell MLB Tickets

mlbIf you’re looking for a great afternoon or evening at the ballfield, you can’t do better than to get MLB tickets to a game featuring one of baseball’s greatest rivalries. Rivalries add spice to the game, amping up the fans in the stands and lending some extra juice to the players on the field. Major league baseball is famous for its rivalries, some of which date to the league’s earliest years and some that are far more recent. The most potent MLB rivalries are regional ones, though some of those have been watered down as teams moved across the country. Others, particularly those of more recent origin, have developed as two teams repeatedly face one another in post-season play. Is your favorite team among this list of Top MLB Rivalries?

Red Sox – Yankees : The Greatest MLB Rivalry of All Time?

Okay, that may be an arguable statement, but if it’s not at the top of the list, it’s darn close. The standing wisdom is that the rivalry started when the Sox sold Babe Ruth to the Yankees in 1919, kicking off the Curse of the Bambino and a long dry spell of 80 years without a Boston World Series pennant. In that same 80-year span, the Yankees took home 26 World Series wins – and gloated about it in a way that hit BoSox fans right in the feels. Needless to say, when the Sox turned their fortunes around in 2004, their fans did their own share of gloating. The rivalry is loud, bitter and divisive – and it makes for amazing games.

Check Out Red Sox – Yankees Tickets

Dodgers – Giants: The Greatest MLB Rivalry of All Time?

When it comes to declaring the greatest MLB rivalry of all time, the general consensus splits between the Sox-Yankees and the Dodgers-Giants. Both rivalries have long, long historic roots, and the latter dates back even further than the former – into the late 19th century, when both teams were New York favorites. While proximity had a lot to do with the early rivalry, it was also fed by class sentiments. The Brooklyn-based Dodgers were working class heroes going up against the elitist New York Giants, which was based in upper class Manhattan. When the Dodgers moved to Los Angeles in the late 1950s, the team owner convinced the owner of the Giants to move to San Francisco successfully exporting an East Coast rivalry to sunny California. The rivalry has been fed by both team’s successes – and watered by the rival team’s failures – for well over 100 years, and it’s fantastic for business. MLB ticket sales figures show that the most consistent sales figures at each team’s home stadium happen when they’re playing their rivals.

Cubs – Cardinals – MLB’s Most Civil Rivalry

The Chicago Cubs and St. Louis Cardinals hold the distinction of carrying on one of the most civil rivalries in all of major league sports. Like the other top MLB rivalries, this one has deep historical roots – the two teams first faced each other in a league championship in 1885. Unlike the others, it’s been marked by civility and respect rather than trash-talking and put downs. This was never quite so marked as it was when the Cub’s Sammy Sosa greeted Card’s Mark McGwire to congratulate him on his record-breaking 61st home run in 1998.

Can the Bulls Pull Off a Miracle? All the Bets Are ON… Maybe

imagesWith just 10 games left in their regular season – including one tonight against the Atlanta Hawks – things are looking pretty dire for the Chicago Bulls, but the team isn’t throwing in the towel just yet. In fact, after a serious pep talk before Sunday night’s game, some of the major players are taking back their recent shamefaced and embarrassed comments and coming out with a whole lot of tough talk.

Grab Your Chicago Bulls Tickets Here!

Coach Promises a Bounce Back

“We still get opportunities to play some of the teams we’re chasing right now,” coach Fred Hoiberg told his hometown newspaper Monday afternoon. “There’s a lot of basketball left, and we have to find a way to bounce back.”

With a 36-36 record going into these final 10 games, they have to do some serious bouncing if they’re going to land a playoff berth, but the guys think they’re up to it – especially if the fans come out and support them. In fact, that support could be the tipping stone in some of the toughest coming games – and it’s a tough schedule coming up for sure. If you check out the Chicago Bulls upcoming games schedule (and our available Chicago Bulls tickets), you’ll see that they’re facing off against playoff-caliber teams – and that can be a good or a bad thing.

On the one hand, if Rose, Butler, Gasol et al let themselves get intimidated, things could go pretty badly for them. A three-game losing streak  has already set them back on their heels, and just about everyone but the hometown fans are writing the team off, not just for this year but for next year as well. Chicago fans recognize schadenfreude when they see it, though, and they’re not buying the hype – or the putdowns. The Chicago Bulls 2016 edition wasn’t the dream team, after all. This year was always meant to be their growth year. They started the season with a bunch of relatively new players and a new coach, and then got hit with just about very stumbling block possible along the way. The team’s pretty starting lineup has managed precious little court time together, what with one injury after another to their players.

The Greatest Moments of the Season…So Far

But despite the misfortunes and difficulties, the Bulls have still managed to pull off some pretty inspiring moments along the way – like shutting down the conference leading Cavaliers in January by 13 points. In other words, they still put on a great show, and the fans appreciate that. They also recognize that the Bulls have the potential to disrupt the dominant narrative going into the final stretch before the playoffs. A couple of wins against teams that are still settling into their playoff spots could tilt the apple cart just enough to make a far more interesting post season.

In the meantime, Chicago fans know that they’re watching the growing pains of a team that could become great with just a little more together-time, practice and fan support.

FYI, it’s a great time to show your support and get behind the Bulls in this last push for a miracle. Check out our Bulls ticket inventory – there are some great bargains available on cheap Chicago Bulls seats, as well as some incredible seats still available right up front.

We’re More Than a Ticket Seller

Fall in Love with College Spring Football

footballfans8While the rest of the world is focused on the brackets for March Madness and NCAA Men’s Basketball championships, college football coaches and players are breaking out the cleats and suiting up to hit the gridiron for some serious spring football. OSU just recently announced the kickoff time for their annual Ohio State LiFE Sports Spring Football game – it’s 1:30 p.m. on April 16 for those who want Ohio State spring football tickets – but OSU is far from the only team hitting the field for college spring football. Why bother? Turns out there are some really good reasons to love NCAA spring football. Here are a few.

Less Pressure More Fun

Since games played on the spring schedule don’t count in the NCAA rankings, coaches aren’t under as much pressure to make every player minute count. That means they take more risks and try out combinations they wouldn’t play during the regular season. It also means that lots more players get a chance to get out on the field and show off their stuff. And the players aren’t feeling as much pressure, either, so they’re out there playing as much for fun as for points. The whole atmosphere at spring college football games is lighter and a lot more fun.

Get a Sneak Peek at the Fall Lineup

Want to get a sneak peek at your favorite NCAA football teams as they’re shaping up and firming out their lineups? Spring is the time to do it. For a lot of teams, the spring gridiron is a proving ground for younger, newer players. By this time, coaches generally know who will be returning for the full season and which players will be moving on. While this isn’t always a big deal, it can be huge. Ohio State is a case in point this year. Head coach Urban Meyer spent the last five years developing one of the strongest starting lines in the entire league – but his best players, the ones who have spent three to four seasons playing with each other and getting to know every nuance of their teammates’ style, are ready to leave the nest. For the first time since taking over as head coach, Meyer will be starting with as many freshman rookie players as established lettermen. There’s a lot of speculation about how that will affect the OSU Spartans in the 2016 NCAA season – but those who understand these things know that they can get a good feel for how deep Meyer’s new line of starters will be, and how well they’ll mesh as a team by showing up to root for the Spartans during the spring football season.

Spot New Talent

One of the most exciting aspects of spring football – for both coaches and fans – is the chance to spot new talent. Spring is when walk ins have the chance to show what they’ve got, and when they’re competing for their spot on the team – or on the bench. Spring college games give fans and coaches alike a preview of the new players in action. If you’re lucky, you just might spot a developing star.

Not all NCAA teams will be playing a spring game, and NCAA college spring football tickets are limited. If your favorite teams are playing, though, you’ll find the best selection of NCAA college football tickets right here. Just check your team’s schedule for their spring game and follow the link to the tickets.

We Have the Tickets You Want

The good news is that we offer tickets for the games you want to see. And when you buy tickets on our tic, you’ll never have to settle for sub-par seats.

NCAA Top Seeds Are Still Up in the Air – Have You Got Your NCAA Final Four Tickets?

2016_Final_Four_LogoNCAA Championship week is more than just a formality this year, according to the most respected sports writers in the college sports field. Unlike many years, when the seeds for the NCAA Championship Tournament have all been essentially settled well before the first round of conference games, the 2016 NCAA Championship tourney schedule is still very much up in the air in every one of the conferences. That leaves many of this week’s games deciding who will move on and who will get to rest up for next season. The official brackets won’t be announced until Selection Sunday, March 13, but many of the participating teams already have their celebratory champagne

Find NCAA Final Four Tickets Right Here!

What You Can Expect

The Michigan State Spartans are among the few teams that are already seeded – and note the “few teams”. This year, there are still a lot of open slots as Selection Sunday looms on the horizon – and it’s not just in the Big 10 conference. Across the nation, even as March Madness officially begins this week, there are still teams that don’t know whether they’ll be heading into post-season play – and if so, who they’ll be facing. A lot of the uncertainty will be put to rest this week as the contending teams take to their various courts in games that will decide the brackets for the first round of March Madness.

The uncertainty also has another effect. There are more NCAA Conference championship tickets available than there generally are this late in the NCAA men’s basketball season. Fans can still find all session tickets for most of the NCAA Championship series games – but that will change dramatically as this week’s games finish and more of the first round tournament spots are nailed down.

Don’t Miss Out on This Year’s Final Four

On the other hand, there are very few NCAA Final Four tickets floating around. It’s the single most-attended series in the NCAA men’s basketball world, and most ticket holders for the Final Four are there for the spectacle of watching two world-class college teams go head to head for the title. They may be rooting for one team or the other, but for the most part the Final Four tickets don’t end up in the hands of partisan college fans. That means NCAA Final Four tickets are at a premium with just about a month to go before the game.

In fact, NCAA Final Four tickets are going fast. The inventory for All Session Passes is dropping by hundreds of tickets daily, and the prices are inching up as the game gets closer and closer. There are even fewer tickets available for NCAA Final Four Session 1 and NCAA Final Four Session 2 games.

No matter which conference and which team you’re rooting for, now is the time to grab tickets for NCAA conference championship and NCAA Final Four games. March Madness tickets will just get harder to find as more and more teams nail down their final seeds and positions in the schedule.

Grab Your Tickets While You Can

The good news is that we still have a limited supply of Final Four game tickets, and you won’t have to settle for sub-par seats. We are known for having tickets that frankly, other ticket sellers just don’t. If you want to learn more about Sports Ticket Bank, and all of the perks and benefits we offer, click here to watch out SportsTicketBank YouTube video.

Could This Be the Year for the Toronto Raptors in the Eastern Conference Championship?

Toronto_Raptors.svgIf you’re a Toronto Raptors fan, you must be holding your breath and pinching yourself this year as you contemplate buying NBA Eastern Conference Championship tickets. With the second best record in the NBA Eastern Conference, the Raptors are solidly in second place and have secured their berth in the first round of the playoffs – but will they have what it takes to face the Cavaliers in the Finals – and win?

Get Toronto Raptors Tickets Here!

Will the Raptors Surprise Everyone?

That’s a pretty big stretch of a dream for a team that’s lost in the first playoffs round the past two years, and has only won a single playoff series in the past two decades. Even the most diehard Raptors fans are skeptical, but as you look at the season’s record – and factor in Friday night’s Raptors win over the Cavs at home – it’s hard not to let a little hope creep in through the those crusty, skeptical edges.

That win puts the Raptors just two games behind Cleveland for top seed in the upcoming series. There’s no way they’ll end the season lower than second. The most serious contest in the NBA Eastern Conference at this point is the Celtics-Heat scramble to take third seed in the conference playoffs, leaving the Raptors solidly, comfortably and unassailably in second place.

It’s not an unfamiliar place for the Raptors. It’s not the first time they’ve made it to the playoffs in recent years. In fact, they’ve earned a playoff berth seven times since 1996 – but only made it past the first round once, in the 2000-2001 season. In 20 years, the Toronto ballers have been taken out in the first round of the Eastern Conference Championship by the Knicks, the Nets, the Wizards, the Magic and the Pistons. They’ve only survived to play in the Eastern Conference semifinals once – taking out the Knicks. With a record like that, it’s hard to blame Toronto basketball fans for holding onto their hearts just a little. After all, the Raptors have broken them so often.

The Pundits are Paying Attention

This year feels a little different, though, at least if you listen to the voices on the ground. ESPN’s senior sports writers point out that the Raptors aren’t just looking good in the Eastern Conference – the team has the fifth best record in the entire league, putting them in the same class as the Golden State Warriors, the San Antonio Spurs, the Oklahoma City Thunder and, of course, the team ahead of them in the Eastern Conference, the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The Raptors are taking the court with star-quality offense and defensive moves, with both their offensive and defensive records putting them in the top five and top ten spots across the league, respectively. As they’ve pulled in strongly behind the Cavs, there’s been a quiet buzz building among the players and the fans that this year could be the year that they take the Eastern Conference Championship.

Of course, that’s still a ways off, and a lot could happen between now and the championship game. The first hurdle will be prevailing in the series that always seems to trip them up – the first round of the Eastern Conference NBA finals. If they can make it past that, the sky’s the limit.

NCAA Men’s Final Four – It’s Sooner Than You Think

2016_Final_Four_LogoWe may not have officially entered into March Madness yet – the President hasn’t even lined up his brackets yet – but if you haven’t locked in your tickets for the NCAA Men’s Final Four in Houston yet, you may find yourself locked out. We’re only about six weeks out from the Final Four Championship games in Houston, and Men’s Final Four tickets are going fast. If you’re traveling to Houston for the games, your time is even shorter than you think – hotels fill up fast, and the prices will do a sharp spike as hotel rooms and game tickets get scarcer and scarcer.

Find Tickets to the NCAA Men’s Final Four

Where to Stay for the NCAA Final Four

The Men’s Final Four Championship games are being held at Houston’s NRG Stadium on April 2nd and April 4th. You can get tickets for Session 1 on April 2nd, Session 2 on April 4th, or for both sessions with a Final Four All Sessions Pass which will get you into all the games. No matter which way you go, if you’re coming in from out of town, you’re going to need a place to stay. These five hotels are close enough to walk to the NRG Center.

Comfort Suites Medical Center Houston

Just two-tenths of a mile from the NRG Center – that’s only about a block away – the Comfort Suites is a mid-level hotel that offers fridge and microwave in every room, free Internet access and a free hot breakfast buffet in the morning. There’s an outdoor swimming pool and a workout room for relaxing before or after the game, and many restaurants within walking distance.

Holiday Inn South Loop Houston

A bit further way at four-tenths of a mile, the Holiday Inn does offer a free shuttle to all local attractions, including the NRG Center. There’s also a restaurant and lounge on premises, free parking and free Internet in the room.

Crowne Plaza Hotel Medical Center Houston

Nominally, the Crowne Plaza is further from the NRG Center than the others, but practically, it’s across the street, just a short walk away. The hotel also offers a free shuttle to all attractions within 5 miles, a heated outdoor swimming pool and exercise room, and two restaurants on the premises. It’s also the hotel you want if you’re planning to bring Fido along – the others are absolutely no-pets.

Extended Stay America Hotel La Concha

If you’re looking for budget lodgings, the America is a good bet. At four-tenths of a mile distance, it’s within easy walking distance of the NCAA Men’s Four stadium, but it also offers a free shuttle. There’s a nominal charge to have a pet with you in your room, free Internet and a kitchen in every studio suite. It’s also the only one of the top five hotels near the NCAA Men’s Final Four Championship games that doesn’t specifically state that it’s smoke-free, if that enters into your calculations.

Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites Main Street

Just over half a mile from NRG Center, the Holiday Inn Express has no shuttle, no swimming pool and no pets – but it does have the lowest room rates around. It also has a free hot breakfast buffet, free parking and free Internet, as well as a refrigerator and microwave in every room.
