Tips for betting on college basketball

About eight months ago, the sporting universe was flipped upside down due to the pandemic. With it came the suspension of the college basketball season in early March, depriving bettors of one of the most exciting events of the year, March Madness.


The long wait is finally about to end: The college hoops season is set to begin. Many casual or recreational bettors wait until March Madness to fill out brackets and get down on college hoops. But wise guys can’t wait to start betting on the first night of the regular season.


Similar to the NBA and pro and college football, college hoops is predominantly a spread and Over/Under sport. Assuming standard -110 juice, this means bettors need to win 52.38% of their plays to break even. In other words, bettors should strive to win 53% of their bets. Anything above that means you’re turning a profit.
