Price is right for Davidson in college basketball futures


Playing college basketball futures is one of the riskiest moves in sports wagering.

It is difficult to predict the winner of a game right before tip-off. It is even harder to forecast how long stretches of a season might play out. And with COVID-19 issues still lingering, college basketball futures are once again a tenuous market.  

But don’t be discouraged. While there is a good chance that futures plays made in the fall need to be checked for a status update, there is also the possibility that sportsbooks, currently focused on football, are not adjusting their outlook for the season as fast as dedicated college basketball bettors. 

It is unlikely that bettors will catch the books napping when it comes to the power conferences, but let’s look further down the conference hierarchy to see if any current futures numbers are lagging. A good spot for a second look at conference futures is the Atlantic 10. 

I was a strong advocate (and consumer) of St. Bonaventure futures during the preseason. The Bonnies had the returning cast to not only win the conference but possibly make a run in the NCAA tournament. But injuries and COVID-related shutdowns have taken away any momentum for the A-10 favorite.
