Conference tourneys whet NCAA appetite

By Aaron Moore  () 

In betting college basketball futures, the conference tournaments serving as the appetizer are often more fulfilling than the main course that begins about a week later.


With so many tournaments running at the same time, it’s a fantastic intersection of daily and futures plays. Last week the West Coast Conference and the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference, two non-power leagues some had feared would forgo their tournaments, announced plans to move ahead with their events.


Good news for sports fans and bettors. 


Handicapping tournaments can sometimes focus on teams squaring off for the third time in a three-month period. And the driving force behind a team’s goal in a conference tournament is usually apparent.
