Beating the March Madness Odds

December 1, 2010 NCAA Basketball

March Madness odds give you the chance to make money.

The March Madness betting schedule is full of games that give you a lot of options. You need to keep firm control of your emotions and your bankroll though if you expect to beat the March Madness odds.

March Madness odds provide so many choices that it is easy to lose control. To have success looking at March Madness betting lines you must be able to keep yourself in control and have a solid plan of attack. It takes discipline to win at sports betting. You also need to be willing to go against the grain and against popular opinion.  Just because everyone is in love with a game does not mean it will win.  For example, let’s say that Kansas is playing a team like Lehigh.  Everyone will be in love with Kansas but that does not necessarily mean they will cover the spread. Yes, they will probably win straight up but covering the point spread is what matters.

With today’s age of the Internet, there really has never been more information and statistics to look at for March Madness odds. The Internet has a lot of information on teams, trends, statistics, matchups, etc. to consider when looking at March Madness odds. To keep all of this data straight is not always easy to do. Oftentimes, the media and the public can influence your opinion.  It takes courage to stand alone against the crowd but it must be done.

The odds makers know the same information that the media knows and the same information that you know. The odds makers adjust the lines accordingly and actually are they are happy when everyone gets on one side of a game. Usually that is game that the public loses.  When you see a game that everyone really likes then you should seriously consider taking the other side.

There are a lot of options to bet March Madness. To have success you must be able to get past the obvious and be courageous enough to stand on your own and go against the crowd.  No one said it would be easy but it can be done.  If you want to win money in the NCAA Tournament then learn to go against popular opinion, think for yourself, and keep firm control of your emotions and your gambling bankroll.
