NCAA Basketball Online Betting: Madness in March Before March Madness

NCAA Basketball Online Betting

When you hear about “March Madness,” of course, you think of the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament. The bracket of 64 teams that gets whittled down to just one. When it occurs, this sporting event takes over the world, becoming the most important thing. In many ways, it’s just as big as the Super Bowl here. That said, it’s not the only “madness in March,” particularly when it comes to NCAA men’s basketball. Sure, the real Madness will be here before you know it, but there’s plenty of NCAA basketball online betting before that, too: the conference championship tournaments, too. 

Mid-Majors and Majors Themselves: All the NCAA Basketball Online Betting 

Just about every conference in NCAA men’s basketball has a conference tournament. In a very real way, this is what the regular season is building towards. The teams that have the best records get the best seeds, or even in some cases, byes through the first rounds (or so). These tournaments are usually on television (even the smallest ones, particularly in the championship rounds). These games may not seem as big a deal as the tournament of 64 itself, but there’s quite a bit of great betting action in these games. 

The reason for that is simple: in a very real way, plenty of these kids are playing or their basketball careers. For the mid-major teams that maybe had an injury or two, and are getting by with a 500 record, these games are their one real chance to keep their careers going. Getting through their conference championship and then winning it, is their one real chance to get to the tournament, to continue playing the game they have during their entire life. If they lose, they’re done for good. These games give them a real chance to do so. 

Of course, when it comes to these games, you don’t just have to bet on the teams that are sitting there with five hundred or worse records. For plenty of teams, this is their last chance to make a case for a better seed in March Madness. Whenever the selection show comes around, and there’s all this arguing about whether one team or another got the seed that they should have, it usually comes down to these games. Win in these tournaments, and you give yourself a great chance to go deep into the big tournament. Lose, and you make your road harder, exposing yourself to better teams earlier on. 


All of the Games 

At BetNow, you can bet on sports at any number of conference tournaments. You can bet on the ones you’ve seen on TV all season long: the ACC, SEC, Big 12, Pac 12, Big 10, and so many others. The teams that are always on television, that recruit with that in mind, Duke, Kentucky, Michigan State and so many others: they’re all here. You can bet on the games with the teams you’ve been watching your entire life. 

That said, we know that there are far more than just major conferences playing these tournaments. You can bet on all of the mid-major tournaments, too. Some of you may not be familiar with the Colonial Athletic Association, the America East Conference, the Atlantic 10, the Mid-Eastern Athletic, and so many others. But, each of these games is a real opportunity to make some money. As with all of the other games, you can find all of the lines and more that you’ll need to make some real money with these games. 

Besides, all of the research and work that you do on these games can come in very handy not that much later on. For example, each of the small conferences that we mentioned above (and many others) have automatic bids to get into the tournament. That means that the winner will be in March Madness. When they do so, they’ll often be a huge underdog to some giant school. Your research that you do for these tournaments can give you a leg up on everyone else who didn’t bet these games and is trying to catch up.
