College basketball betting is unique in that it relies on polls to determine which team is the best during the regular season competition.
But unlike college football, NCAA basketball betting has a post season playoff tournament to determine the national championship. But heading into the regular season the polls are king and the only real indicator, at present, to determine which are the best teams in the land.
College basketball betting enthusiasts can’t be surprised to see North Carolina as the overwhelming number one in the first college basketball betting preseason poll of the year. The Tar Heels are head and shoulders above the competition in the NCAA basketball betting. Not only are they the best squad in the best conference in college basketball betting, but they’re led by a very talented group of veterans and are very well coached. So favored is this team by the college basketball betting experts that no team even received a single vote.
In the number two spot UConn could be a bit over-rated but until the ball is tipped to start the 2008-09 college basketball betting season no one can be certain. Louisville comes in at the three spot in the NCAA basketball betting polls and could prove to be a very dangerous team. After a few years of trying to get the talent for his system, Rick Petino is finally back on the map in the college basketball betting title chase and will be a formidable opponent for any team.
The number four spot in the first poll of the upcoming NCAA basketball betting season is occupied by UCLA. This is another team that no one wants to face. This team has very good, experienced guard play and boatload of freshman talent. Duke rounds out the top five in the USA Today poll, and that’s hardly a surprise to any college basketball betting fan. Coach K always has a tough team and with freshman athleticism to help out with a talented corps of veterans this looks to be a team that’s built to go deep in the college basketball betting tournament.
The teams rounding the top ten in most of the college basketball betting preseason polls are Texas, Michigan State, Purdue, Notre Dame and even Gonzaga. All of these teams should be around come tournament time, but it’s a long college basketball betting season and you never know what can happen between now and March.
