Trends for March Madness Odds at SBG Global

December 1, 2010 NCAA Basketball

March Madness odds will be exciting again this season as 65 teams battle for the NCAA college basketball championship.

There are a number of great March Madness betting trends to consider for the tournament. Let’s take a look at some of them.

March Madness odds history tells us that a #1 seed has never lost to a #16 seed in the tournament. What you should also know about this matchup in March Madness odds is that rarely are these games close. Only about 10% of the games have margins in single digits.

The #2 seeds almost never lose to the #15 seeds but it is not impossible. Moving down the list in March Madness odds we find that #3 seeds have lost a lot more than the #2 seeds while the #4 seeds actually have about the same record against the #13 seeds. The #5 seeds have not done nearly as well in March Madness odds against the #12 seeds. Gamblers love taking the underdog here in this March Madness betting matchup more than any of the other first round games. Just look at the numbers. The #4 seed wins over 82% of the time but the #5 seed wins about 68% of the time. That is a major drop off for one seed in March Madness betting. The #6 seed almost has as good a winning percentage as the #5 seed in March Madness odds. You would think the #7 seed would struggle against the #10 seed in March Madness odds but they win about 63% of the time. It is the 8-9 matchup that is almost 50-50 in March Madness betting. In fact, the #9 seed actually does better against the March Madness odds.

The Final Four and the Championship game have a few interesting March Madness odds trends. A #8 seed is the lowest to ever make the title game. A #10 or #12 has never made it that far as March Madness odds history shows. Only one time in the history of the Final Four have all four #1 seeds made it in March Madness odds. Six times in history the title game has matched up two #1 seeds. The top overall seed in the tournament (the better of the four #1’s) has won the title only six times.
