March Madness Betting Different at SBG Global

December 1, 2010 NCAA Basketball

March Madness betting is different than regular season college basketball betting.

One of the biggest mistakes that so many gamblers make in March Madness betting is that they are far too reliant and fixated on what happened in the regular season, and how a team performed at that time, rather than the immediate events and recent play that led up to the team getting into the March Madness bracket.

March Madness betting has shown time after time that teams are ready for a fall entering the tournament. You should particularly look at teams in the March Madness bracket that thrived at home but struggled on the road. Remember that in March Madness betting every game is a road game. If a team struggled on the road during the regular season it stands to reason they will struggle in the tourney. Conversely, look at teams that did well on the road. They should be good bets in March Madness betting because they are tough teams that know how to win on the road.

One of the most important things to remember in March Madness betting is that it is a new season and that teams that may have been preseason favorites, or highly ranked early in the year, may have either been exposed or in a slump and not ready to fulfill their early promise. By the same token, teams that either stumble out of the gate early or who were ignored in the preseason talk will often sneak up as an excellent value and bite gamblers that are not ready for them in March Madness betting.

Remember in March Madness betting that perception is huge. The public looks at the Top 10 teams and doesn’t see much else. They won’t look at surprise teams in the March Madness bracket. Because of perception you will see the March Madness betting lines on the marquee teams be higher than they should. Keep that in mind as you look at the March Madness betting lines this year.

In March Madness betting it is best to look at just the last few games that each team has played as that will tell a gambler whether a team is picking up speed or running out of gas. That is a huge tip to remember as you look at the March Madness bracket this season.
