How to Bet College Basketball

 

Let's learn to bet college basketball.

Key Points

  • Betting on college basketball is similar to betting on other sports that offer moneyline, point spread, and totals bets.
  • Bettors that can find their own niche in college basketball can have success.

Betting on college basketball is fun and exciting, but it can be very challenging as well. There are 358 NCAA Division I basketball teams. That means there is a lot of variation when it comes to talent, but more on that later. No matter if youíre a seasoned sports bettor or a sports betting beginner, we have tips to help you win more NCAAB bets.

The most traditional ways to bet on college basketball are similar to those of other major sports. You can wager on the moneyline, point spread, and game totals. There are other ways to bet on the sport, but knowing what to look for can help you be successful.

Traditional Wagers - Bet College Basketball

Betting the moneyline is simply placing a wager on a team to win, regardless of the score. In the following example, Kansas is favored over Oklahoma State.

††††††††††††††††††††††† Kansas††††††††††††††††††††††† -145

††††††††††††††††††††††† Oklahoma State††††††††† +125

A $100 bet on Oklahoma State wins $125 if the Cowboys pull the upset. To win $100 on Kansas, a bettor must wager $145.

Point spread bets take into account the differences in talent level on both teams. Using the same teams, we find Kansas is a 4.5-point favorite. To win a bet on Kansas, the Jayhawks must win the game by at least five points. The juice, -110, means bettors will wager $110 to win $100.

††††††††††††††††††††††† Kansas †††††††††††††††††††††† -4.5 (-110)

††††††††††††††††††††††† Oklahoma State††††††††† +4.5 (-110)

Totals bets are only concerned with the total number of points scored by each team. Betting on totals in college basketball is very popular.

Using the same two teams, the total has been set at 145.5. The half-point ensures there is not a push. Typically, totals bets come with juice of -110.

††††††††††† ††††††††††† Kansas †††††††††††††††††††††† O 145.5 (-110)

††††††††††††††††††††††† Oklahoma State††††††††† U 145.5 (-110)

If you bet $110 on the Over and the final score is 80-70, you win $100.

Futures College Basketball Bets

Betting on future outcomes - futures bets - are also popular in college basketball. The most popular college basketball futures bet is on the national champion. March Madness is a favorite of even the lesser sports fan.

Itís usually a great bet even when wagering on the overall favorite. If you make the wager early enough, you may get the favorite at odds of +500 to +900. Imagine winning $5 to $9 for every dollar bet and your favorite wins the national title.

NCAAB Betting Tips

Unlike college football, college basketballís Division I is made up of 32 different conferences. Oddsmakers will focus on the major conferences - Power 5 in football - which gives sports bettors some opportunity in the mid-major conferences like the Big South and Atlantic-10.

Bettors that can become an expert on one of these mid-major conferences can often find strong value bets. Thatís one way to give yourself an advantage over sportsbooks.

Another is betting on college basketball totals. Setting totals for over 300 games each week can be tricky for sportsbooks. As a result, sharp bettors often attack college basketball totals immediately after they are released. 

Smart bettors can jump on a trend before a total adjusts too far and have great success in betting college basketball totals. 

The other area where bettors can find value is one we mentioned already - betting futures. If you get in early enough on the national championship bet, you can find great odds on a favorite. There will also be value on potential sleepers where bettors will have the opportunity to cash in big if they can win it all.
