The time is finally here as NCAA Basketball starts this week! Last year the title stayed in the Big 12 as number 1 seed Kansas overcame a 15 point deficit to knock 8 seeded North Carolina for its fourth Men’s Basketball Championship. This year UNC, Gonzaga, Houston, and Kentucky start the season as the favorites as they all sit around 10-1 to win the championship. There are lots of new faces on teams this year. Duke will start its life without Coach K and Jon Scheyer takes over. Kentucky returns AP player of the year Oscar Tshiebwe, on his quest to join Bill Walton and Ralph Sampson as the only players to win back to back Player of the year awards. Sides and totals are up everywhere and I don’t think I’ve ever been more ready for a season to start!
For the past two decades, no sport has treated me and my bankroll better than college basketball. Every year, the NCAA Basketball season offers some of the best betting action on the market. If you have been following me and my gambling mantras over the past year on KrackWins, you know I preach money management, finding value and success over the long run over and over. College Basketball is, without a doubt, the best sport to take advantage of.
4 Sports Betting Tips for College Basketball
First of all, where there are 130 FBS college football teams, there are 351 Division 1 college basketball teams. This translates into an average of over 175 games on any given week. On a busy weekend, there could be in upwards of 100 games on the board. There are a plethora of opportunities for edges to be found and value to be had. My team scours the board each and every day to find those games and then offer them to our subscribers. You know by now that being a plus gambler requires dedication and discipline over the long haul and no haul is longer, than the college basketball grind. While you are at your day job, the KrackWins team will be grinding each day to find the value for you.
Second, if you have been with us for the last few months, you know that we have been absolutely crushing FCS/small market games. The reason is simple: there is less information out there on these teams for the bookmakers to set the number so loose lines are plentiful. Same goes for college basketball but with an exponential amount of more options. My analysts often know more about these teams than the books themselves and we pounce on them. With 351 teams, how much time can a book spend setting the Manhattan vs. Fairfield line? Keep your eye out for small market games, especially early in the season.
Third, as you know we love the totals and college basketball is no exception. While college football offers at most a 20 point variance, most college basketball totals are going to be in the 120 to 150 range. Teams that shoot a lot of 3’s or play a running style are impacted greatly by a specific type of defensives played by their opponent, making matchups key in setting and betting a number. Tons of value can be had in betting totals, especially in the early season.
Finally, just like location, location, location is the key in real estate, bankroll management is king with college basketball. Games will start at as early as 7:00 pmEastern on weeknights and Noon on weekends and run through 11:00 pm starts for West Coast games. This presents plenty of opportunities to chase earlier losses. Do not fall into that trap. Keep your bets the same based on bankroll percentage throughout the season or you will be on tilt before conference play begins.
Overall, college basketball is really a professional game when it comes to betting and winning. Me and my team has been winning in this game for 30+ years Don’t go at this marathon grind alone. Let KrackWins do the heavy lifting from tip off through cutting down the nets and One Shining Moment.
