For fans and bettors who understand that the madness of March encompasses the entire month and not just the NCAA tournament, the opening of the conference tourneys, even the mid-majors, puts some pep in your step. Many in the industry prefer the volume of games, as well as the familiarity of opponents, that conference tournaments bring. In fact, some professional bettors spend much more time, resources and bankroll on the conference tourneys than they do on the Big Dance and the other postseason tournaments combined.
If you behave similarly, check the following betting systems, with at least one angle of 60% or better for each conference starting its tournament by Monday. Part 2 of this series, in the next issue of Point Spread Weekly, will focus on conferences playing their tournaments next week.
The angles I have chosen focused on three key areas: bye games, rounds and line ranges.
