Picking Winners at a March Madness Sportsbook at SBG Global

December 1, 2010 NCAA Basketball

March Madness sportsbook odds give you a lot of chances to pick winners.

That doesn’t mean it is always easy to do though. Let’s look at some things that can help you pick winners in March Madness betting.

March Madness sportsbook winners have to be picked against the spread if you want to win money. Yes, you can pick the #1 seeds to win against the #16 seeds but that doesn’t mean they will cover the spread. Actually, they have done pretty well against the March Madness betting pointspread as well, but you can’t just automatically pick the higher seed and win every game. You must do a little bit more than that in March Madness betting.

What you need to remember when wagering at a March Madness sportsbook is that underdogs hold their own. For example, the #11 and #12 seeds win outright about 30% of the time in the first round of the tournament. You don’t necessarily have to pick those teams to win but you definitely need to give them a serious look as you bet at the March Madness sportsbook.

Remember what we said earlier about the #1 seeds? They do pretty well in the NCAA Tournament. They are number one seeds for a reason. They are expected to win and advance. Many times they do just that so if you are going to oppose them when wagering at a March Madness sportsbook you need to have a good reason. Straight up the #1 seeds have never lost in the first round, they win almost 90% of the time in the second round, more than 50% of the time in the Sweet Sixteen and the Elite Eight and even a higher percentage in the Final Four if they are not up against another #1 seed.

When you pick games at a March Madness sportsbook remember that experience is important. Teams that have played in the tournament before a worth considering in March Madness sportsbook wagers. Coaches that have been there before know what to do and how to prepare their teams. Newcomers can have a bit of stage fright and struggle in the tournament. Be careful about taking those newbies as you wager at a March Madness sportsbook.
