March Madness odds give gamblers a lot of excitement. Many people have said that the first four days of NCAA Tournament March Madness betting lines are the best four days of the entire year in terms of sports gambling.

Those games provide a lot of great March Madness odds.
March Madness odds continue the following week with four games on Thursday, four games on Friday, two on Saturday and two on Sunday. This gets the Sweet Sixteen in March Madness odds down to the Final Four before the weekend is over. The following Saturday has Final Four March Madness odds with two games and the NCAA Championship game is played on Monday. Technically March Madness betting lines carry over into April as the Championship is almost always played in April and the Final Four is often played in April as well.
March Madness odds provide so much excitement for a few main reasons. First, the games are on TV. CBS provides wall to wall coverage of the NCAA Tournament and gamblers love to watch games on TV and bet March Madness odds. The second main reason is the bracket format.

These are all part of the excitement that goes into March Madness betting lines.
