NCAA Men’s Basketball Team Ratings

The Ranker has measured them up, and here’s how the teams stack up against each other.  The ratings are designed to be predictive, as in the team with the higher rating should beat the team with the lower rating.  The Ranker has also determined a home-court-bonus, which should be added to the the rating of the home team.  The difference between the home team’s adjusted rating and the visiting team’s rating is the predicted total point difference for that matchup.

(As of games through 3/11/17)
