NCAA Tournament Betting Angles
March Madness is here and for a college basketball sports bettor this is the perfect time of year. Games are played early in the day, every day and the games are all meaningful. Teams are attempting to win championships or get notice by the committee that selects the field of 65 that will be playing or the national championship. This could be a very good time for sports bettors to get an edge and make a profit. It is important to look for certain angles when betting for or against teams in March. Here are a few angles to look out for.
The first angle to look out for is a team that has nothing to lose. Many teams know that they will not be in the big dance before the conference tournaments start. Those teams only have one chance to get to the dance and that is by winning the conference championships. These are the teams that may be a great bet as underdogs against better teams that know that they are going dancing.
Another angle to be aware of is the location. While some tournaments are meant to be played in neutral location, sometimes the court actually will provide a home advantage for one team. For example the Big East tournament is played in Madison Square Garden. Although no college teams play home games there the edge is obvious for Syracuse and St. Johns. If you know this in advance or what teams travel well it could provide a betting edge.
Finally it is essential to pay attention to how teams are playing as they enter the tournament. If a team is on a losing streak entering the tournament they are usually a good go against if they are a favorite.
These are just some of the angles to look out for if you’re betting on college basketball in March. Look for these angles, get a great sportsbook for the hoops action and enjoy the tournaments!
