Here at BangTheBook.com, we pride ourselves on our work ethic and on presenting data and betting angles that you aren’t going to find anywhere else. The Month of Madness is a hectic time for handicappers of all skill levels and bankrolls. It starts with 32 conference tournaments and ends with a 68-team field that eventually comes down to the Final Four before the calendar flips to April.
Our goal at BangTheBook is to give you some sort of idea on all 32 of those conference tournaments. Unlike past years, all of these conferences have been lined on a regular basis and we’ve been able to talk more about them on BangTheBook Radio.
Bookmark this page because we’re going to fill you in on all 32 conference tournaments. We’ll talk about the unique quirks to all of them, look at the best futures betting value, and also explain different concepts ranging from the money line rollover to different shooting backdrops and the ability of those to impact the totals betting market. We’re also going to try to hit all 32 conference tournaments on BangTheBook Radio, so be sure to listen all month long.
As we finish these, they will be hyperlinked and in boldface, so you’ll know which ones are done. Odds will come from a variety of different places, as we’ll look to post the first set that we find. Some may come from brick-and-mortar sportsbooks and others will come from the offshores. It all depends on which books have posted so we can get these to you as quickly as possible.
This is the start of our big March push on the college basketball side and we are also making a big push with our MLB content as well, including Adam Burke’s 2020 MLB Betting Guide. We’re happy to have you along for the ride.
