March Madness Betting Tips

March Madness is the busiest time of year for online sportsbooks and studious handicappers. Here's some tips for bettors and brackets as March approaches.

March Madness has expanded to become one of the great sporting events in the world. The 75th March Madness tournament will take place from March 17th - April 6th, 2015 across a dozen U.S. states, ending with the Men's Final Four Championship Game at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Indiana.

75 Years of Madness

The NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Championship is now the premier college tournament in all NCAA sports. This storied tournament began in 1939 with only 8 teams and has grown to include 65 teams in its current form.

It was Brent Musburger who first coined the term “March Madness” in the NCAA Tournament games he called in 1982. Since then, the term Big Dance has been incorporated to give college basketball fans a better idea of the big picture because just one nickname wasn't enough for the biggest NCAA tournament of the year.

The Madness refers to the frenzied action on the hard court as 49 games are played in the first weekend alone and the passion ignited inside both fans and NCAA college hoops bettors can be seen in people around the country.

Betting on Brackets

March Madness is the most heavily bet time of the year for sports betting, especially for on-line wagering. The number of people who bet on-line is growing all the time and an NCAA basketball bracket just adds to the excitement.

Not only are college basketball fans making wagers on individual games but they’re filling out brackets from top to bottom, picking the winners all the way to the championship. In fact, NCAA basketball brackets have become a staple around office coolers throughout late March and early April.

March Madness Betting Tips

Whether you are betting games straight up, against the spread, on the money line or filling out a bracket, here are some things to keep in mind when making your bracket picks or betting college basketball games during the tournament:

  • * Watch for late-season momentum heading into the tournament.
  • * Keep an eye on the point guard play.
  • * The coach: Someone who has "been there, done that" in past tournaments is a major resource.
  • * Teams need a high level scorer who can carry a team if necessary.
  • * The quality and depth of a squad's bench is important.
  • * Team experience is almost always crucial to march madness tournament success.
  • * Don't overlook favorable travel and playing sites.
