March Madness betting lines on the NIT might look the same as NCAA Tournament lines but they are not. There are often two conflicting emotions and motivations for NIT teams. There are the smaller or less renowned programs that rarely get any kind of exposure and are excited about making the NIT and then there are the teams that are disappointed to be there because they were hoping for the Big Dance. The small schools are likely to give maximum effort against better known or “name brand” college basketball teams. These smaller and lesser known schools are often underrated teams that offer excellent value against the March Madness betting lines.
