NCAA Basketball Expert Predictions: Three Interesting March 14 Opening Lines
by Alan Matthews - 3/13/2017
There are way too many NCAA Tournament props at the various sportsbooks to address them all here. One I like at BetOnline is whether a team seeded No.1 through 4 wins the Big Dance, with "yes" at -900 and "no" at +550. Only three times since the tourney first expanded in 1985 has a seed lower than No. 4 won it all: No. 8 Villanova in '85, No. 6 Kansas in 1988 and No. 7 UConn three years ago. At -900, that's probably not worth your time even though it's probably a near-lock. Perhaps a better one is whether a No. 1 or No. 2 wins it all with yes at -280 and no at +220.
March Madness Brackets Help: Advice on No. 5 vs. No. 12 Matchup
by Trevor Whenham - 3/13/2017
There isn't a seeding in the NCAA Tournament that draws more attention and intrigue than the 5 vs. 12 line in the first round. And for good reason - in 128 meetings since the tournament expanded to 64 teams in 1985 the much lower seed has won 46 times, which is a very strong 36 percent win rate. You could make some nice money on the moneyline over the years at a win percentage like that. And lately you could also win nicely against the spread - the 12s have gone 8-3-1 ATS in the last three years. The No. 12 seeds bounced back from losing all four games in 2015 to win twice last year.
NCAA Tournament Bracket Strategy and Advice: Dangerous Lower Seeds
by Chris Vasile - 3/13/2017
With Selection Sunday in the rear-view mirror and the field of 68 set for the 2017 NCAA Tournament, the public is now in a race against time to handicap all four play-in games and 32 first-round games that will be contested over the next five days. Most bettors have a routine when handicapping games, but not even that stops them from debating (complaining) about the teams that got terrible draws. Whether it was seeding or the region they got sent to, there is always some sort of backlash from the public towards the selection committee regarding the bracket.
March Madness Money Management Tips and Expert Betting Advice
by Trevor Whenham - 3/11/2017
For most people the NCAA Tournament is all about brackets and pools. While that is undeniably fun and potentially profitable, March Madness is also a great time to be alive for bettors. There are plenty of games to choose from, they are all televised, you don't have to worry about home-court advantage, and you can be certain that teams aren't going to be holding anything back. It's a bit of a betting dream, really. To maximize your betting potential, though, you need to make sure that your March Madness money management is as strong as it possibly can be. Here are four tips to keep in mind in pursuit of that goal:
March Madness Bracket Advice and Tips By Expert NCAA Tournament Handicapper
by Trevor Whenham - 3/10/2017
Are you planning on filling out a March Madness pool this year? Dumb question - of course you are. I mean, you have a pulse and you are aware that sports exist, so it pretty much goes without saying. Also, reading this article is a pretty big giveaway as well. While so many people fill out brackets every year, only a tiny fraction of those people wind up winning their pool or making money. You, of course, need to be one of that tiny fraction. And the chances of that happening are much higher if you stick to this March Madness bracket advice and tips.
March Madness Betting Trends for 2017 NCAA Tournament Wagering
by Trevor Whenham - 3/9/2017
The NCAA Tournament is one of the great sporting events in the world, and the Final Four is rarely a letdown. For many people, though, the best part of the tournament isn't actually the final weekend but rather the first two days. On the first Thursday and Friday of action it's wall-to-wall action. Little work gets done as games are played from practically sunrise until well after sundown. It is, truly, madness.
2017 SEC Conference Tournament Predictions with College Basketball Betting Odds
by Robert Ferringo - 3/9/2017
I listened to an interview of an SEC athletic director on Wednesday morning. He was lamenting the fact that the ACC is projected to get nine or even 10 teams in the NCAA Tournament. While the SEC, probably the worst of the major conferences in basketball, was looking at earning four or five bids at most.
2017 Big 12 Conference Tournament Predictions with College Basketball Betting Odds
by Robert Ferringo - 3/8/2017
No one dominates like Kansas dominates. The Jayhawks have won the Big 12 regular season an astounding 13 straight times, completely owning one of the best leagues in the country. They've been only slightly more susceptible in the conference tournament, winning the Big 12 title seven times in 17 opportunities since the turn of the century.
How To Wager on the NCAA Tournament and March Madness Betting Tips
by Chris Vasile - 3/8/2017
Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to March. It is the third month of the calendar year and consists of 31 days. It is a month that gives bettors a chance to wager on NHL, NBA, European Soccer and everything in between. It is also a month that allows us to whet our appetite for the upcoming MLB season that is just a few weeks away. Above all else, though, March is known for March Madness.
NCAA Basketball Expert Predictions: Three Interesting March 9 Opening Lines
by Alan Matthews - 3/8/2017
I was hugely rooting for Milwaukee to upset Northern Kentucky in the Horizon League title game on Tuesday night as the Panthers were last in the conference in the regular season and their 23 losses would have been the most ever by a team entering the Big Dance. Alas, Northern Kentucky, a new Division I program, reached its first Big Dance with a 59-53 win (covering by a half-point on two late free throws). The Horizon Tournament was broken wide open when co-regular season champ Valparaiso lost star Alec Peters to a season-ending injury before it. Valpo was taken down last weekend by Milwaukee. There has been at least one team with a losing record in the past five NCAA Tournaments. Will that streak continue?
2017 Big Ten Conference Tournament Predictions with College Basketball Betting Odds
by Robert Ferringo - 3/7/2017
Perhaps no conference in the country experienced the talent drain that the Big Ten endured during this past offseason. The result has been a parity-driven league that saw several big-name programs rise and fall (and vice versa) throughout a harried conference campaign. But that parity and inconsistency has had another consequence: it has made the Big Ten Tournament one of the most intriguing conference championships in the country this week, with a host of storylines and a seemingly endless crop of teams fighting for NCAA Tournament berths, along with a league banner.
2017 ACC Tournament Predictions with College Basketball Betting Odds
by Robert Ferringo - 3/6/2017
The ACC is invading NYC this week, with the men's ACC Conference basketball tournament taking place in Brooklyn this weekend. The ACC's 15-team Franken-tournament is the largest of the major conference tournaments and will have long-reaching ramifications not just in regards of crowning a league champion but also for setting up next week's NCAA Tournament field.
Joe Lunardi and ESPN Bracketology a Complete Fraud
by Robert Ferringo - 3/6/2017
I have nothing against Joe Lunardi personally. But perhaps more than any other person on television Lunardi has become the "voice" of NCAA Tournament predictions despite the fact that, in my opinion, his whole facade is nothing more than corporate-sponsored branding. In short, Joe Lunardi and his self-proclaimed "Bracketology" is a fraud.
2017 MAC Tournament Predictions with College Basketball Betting Odds
by Chris Vasile - 3/6/2017
The MAC Conference Tournament gets underway tonight with four games and runs through March 11. The winner of the tournament is designated the MAC Tournament Champion and receives the conference's automatic bid into the NCAA Tournament, which begins March 14. The Buffalo Bulls are the two-time defending tournament champion and will have a lot of work to do in order to defend the crown. The Bulls have had a down year by their standards and will be in tough against the likes of solid teams like Akron and Ohio.

The most glorious month of the sports betting calendar is upon is. For 31 days the college basketball-loving world will be inundated with buzzer beaters, back-door covers, bubbles bursting and big shots everywhere. It can be a gambler's paradise - or a nightmare. But either way, it is always an adrenaline-addled thrill ride that encapsulates everything we love and loathe in terms of sports, competition, gambling and Life on Earth here, now, in this Year of Our Lord 2017.
2017 Missouri Valley Conference Tournament Predictions with NCAA Basketball Betting Odds
by Robert Ferringo - 3/2/2017
Arch Madness, also known as the Missouri Valley Conference Tournament, is one of the first conference tournaments to be played and kind of an unofficial indicator that The Madness of March has begun. Like most recent seasons, there are two powerhouse teams at the top of the league and then a bunch of also-rans. However, I feel like the gap between those top two clubs is shorter than the win-loss records suggest.
2017 NCAA Tournament Field Projections and Predictions for March Madness
by Robert Ferringo - 1/16/2017
Football is all but over. College football is done. The NFL has just three games left in its campaign. And that means that bettors around the country, if they haven't already, are turning all of their attention to the hardwood. And while the NBA is technically more popular than college basketball, the sportsbooks know that the college kids are going to be paying the bills for the next two months.
Oklahoma vs. Villanova Free Final Four Picks for Best Props on the Board
by Chris Vasile - 4/2/2016
After five long and grueling days, the NCAA Tournament is set to resume with two very juicy Final Four matchups. I would go out on a limb and say three out of the four teams taking part were "expected" to make it to Houston, with the lone Cinderella team being Syracuse.
Syracuse vs. North Carolina Free Picks: Best Props on the Board
by Chris Vasile - 4/2/2016
The second Final Four game scheduled for Saturday is somewhat of an enigma to me. It pits the No.10 seeded Syracuse Orange against the current favorite to win the tournament, No.1-ranked North Carolina. These two teams have taken different paths to Houston, with the Orange relying on a great 2-3 zone defense and the Tar Heels outscoring teams.
Free NIT Championship Game Picks for George Washington vs. Valparaiso
by Chris Vasile - 3/31/2016
The NIT tournament is usually an afterthought for bettors when it comes to college basketball in March. While everyone gets caught up with the hoopla surrounding the NCAA Tournament, I believe the real value lies in betting on the NIT. In the NIT, teams are busting their butts to prove to the committee they should have been invited to the Big Dance.
