Bet on NCAAB
College basketball takes the nation by storm in March, and is a massive betting month for the sport. You can still wager on college hoops before then, as the season begins in early November. Here’s a helpful NCAAB betting guide we’ve put together.
Moneyline – Bet on who you think is going to win the game. Conference basketball doesn’t start until late December so until then you can expect mostly larger moneyline payouts when betting on the underdog.
Futures Betting – Futures betting is a popular way to wager on college basketball. Decide which team you think will win their conference or go on a deep March Madness run.
NBA Draft Bets – If you see somebody that you like you can place a bet on them to be drafted to the NBA. Make sure you do your research on this one because a good statistical season doesn’t always translate directly to NBA draft stock, and a player can also decide later that they’d like to return to college for another year.
NCAAB Betting Options and Odds
Betting on NCAAB is ideal for those who feel that the NBA just does not offer enough action. There is a staggering number of games, teams, and special fixtures to wager on, with multiple games running every day during the November to March season run. Then there are the pre-seasons, friendlies, and the NBA draft picks to bet on.
Many NCAAB fans choose to specialize and wager on a single conference, rather than attempting to cover the entire nationwide season.
If you have ever wagered on an NBA game, you’ll already be familiar with NCAAB betting odds. Most odds will have a moneyline and a points spread, as such:
Louisiana-Monroe Warhawks: +125 / +2.5
Michigan State Spartans: -145 / -2.5
Here, the Warhawks are the underdogs, so the odds and point spread are in their favor. You can win $125 on a $100 bet, while the point spread stipulates that a Warhawks bet still pays out as a win if they lose by less than 3 points. Since the Spartans are the favorites, the moneyline is -145, meaning you have to bet $145 to win $100. The Spartans must also win by at least three points to be considered the paying winners.
With a league as varied and massive as the NCAAB, you can imagine that there is more than one way to wager. You can place parlay bets on successive outcomes, and even combine NCAAB and NBA parlays into one. There are special bets on historic rivalry games, as well as futures bets such as the overall conference winner.
