2009 March Madness odds will be exciting to consider as 65 teams play for the NCAA basketball title.
March Madness betting can be profitable if you keep a few things in mind. Let’s look at some quick 2009 March Madness odds tips.
2009 March Madness odds are very popular in the first round. As you look to handicap these games keep in mind that underdogs do well but they don’t always win straight up. The #16 seeds have never won outright but they can sometimes cover the big March Madness betting number. #2, #3 and #4 seeds also win most of the time straight up but against the spread the results are somewhat mixed. The upsets occur with the #9 through #12 seeds against the #5, #6, #7 and #8 seeds. If you are going to pick outright upsets in 2009 March Madness odds then you want to look at the #9 through #12 seeds. You particularly want to look at the #9 seeds in 2009 March Madness odds as they have won more than 50% straight up against the #8 seeds in NCAA Tournament history.
If you like the #10 and #12 seeds to win in the first round of 2009 March Madness odds then you should pick them again in the second round in 2009 March Madness odds. These two seeds have won outright about half of the time in the second round and they are even better against the March Madness betting pointspread. On the other side of that coin, if you picked a #13, #14 or #15 seed to win in the first round of 2009 March Madness odds and they won outright they probably won’t win in the second round.
As you look at 2009 March Madness odds for the Sweet Sixteen keep in mind that about 70% of #1 seeds make it to the Elite 8. That is a very strong percentage in March Madness betting. Only one team seeded lower than #11 has ever made it to the Elite Eight.
When you get to Elite Eight 2009 March Madness odds you should pick at least one or two of the #1 seeds. Exactly one or two #1 seeds have made the Final Four in 19 of the last 24 years. Last year was an aberration as all four #1 seeds made it for the first time ever.
In Final Four 2009 March Madness odds keep in mind that no team below a sixth seed has played in the title game in the last 23 years. This goes right along with the title winner as for 20 years in a row a team seeded fourth or higher has won the title.
