March Madness betting really sometimes begins in late February, but definitely gets underway in early March with college conference tournaments.
March Madness betting is very exciting in the NCAA Tournament but it is oftentimes just as good in the big conference tournaments like the Big East, Pac-10, etc. Let’s take a look at conference tournaments in March Madness betting.
March Madness betting in terms of college basketball conference tournaments are interesting to wager on because of the different dynamics. These tournaments are a golden redemption opportunity for highly regarded teams that slipped up during the regular season. They also may very well serve as something of a letdown for those teams who won their conference’s regular season title. With the exception of “mid-major” conferences such as the Horizon League, big time regular season conference champions are already assured a berth in the March Madness bracket and have little else to play for except seeding and regions. But a “bubble” team that enters a March Madness bracket tournament with its literal post season life on the line can often be counted upon to bring its best effort and be worth a bet in March Madness betting.
A March Madness betting gambler can often find some good values in the post season conference tournaments as there will be teams that were regular season favorites who ended up struggling or stumbling but still have outstanding talent and will use the post season conference tournament as a second chance and will play with the appropriate urgency. By the same token, there is a lot more “public” sports betting money wagered on post season college basketball in March Madness betting. The smart college basketball March Madness betting gambler who is in it for the long haul during the month of March can often find himself some excellent bargains and values by opposing the highly publicized teams that the public March Madness betting gamblers jump on in the March Madness bracket. In fact, conference tournament time is often when the sharper college basketball March Madness betting players make their greatest gains, as there is simply more public money involved.
It is important in March Madness betting for a college basketball bettor to not allow himself to be caught up in the hype of successful regular season teams, particularly those who were “surprise” teams. It is also just as important to not automatically write off “beaten favorites” or good teams that didn’t quite live up to expectations, as their value will never be better as you examine the conference tournament March Madness bracket.
