It is finally time for the College Basketball season! In this episode of the Hot Tip Bets Podcast Chris previews the upcoming season conference by conference. Check out the full preview on this weeks Podcast.
Throughout this College Basketball season, I watched many games where a favorite was covering the spread most of the game and blew the lead in the final few minutes. This made me wonder what the benefits of betting first half lines over full game lines where.
There is so much more that goes into a buzzer-beater than just the ball going through the hoop. A lower seed knocking off a higher seed will always make for a more exciting finish. If the game is tied when the shot is put up the buzzer-beater is not as good simply because the game would not have been over if it was missed.
The college basketball regular season is officially over and it is finally time for championship week. Last week we got a taste of some conference championships and they did not disappoint.
We officially have our first two teams in the Tournament. Today was also full of regular season championship-clinching games for several teams. And like always we had all sorts of upsets. This week was a nice start to what will be an exciting March of College Basketball.
Even though the big conference championships don’t start until next week, there are still some great games. In fact, there are two hopeful one seeds playing this week, San Diego State out of the Moutain West and Gonzaga out of the WCC.
Last week was a crazy week in College Basketball and somehow this week still delivered. In today’s slate of games, 9 AP Top 25 teams lost. I keep thinking at some point this season will start to look normal, but considering its already March I’m starting to lose hope. At least March Madness looks to be full of upsets.
This game was one of the most exciting of the season. Kansas and Baylor split victories in the regular season and will more than likely meet again in the Big 12 Championship. Azubuike played a crazy game scoring 23 points and grabbing 19 rebounds.
In recent years the argument of whether or not you should foul up three has been a hot argument. The theory is that if you are fouling up three at the end of the game the trailing team can only score two free throws. However, we saw North Carolina foul up three this past weekend, and it did not work out so well for them.
When it comes to betting on college basketball the value of home court advantage is a hotly debated topic. What really is the advantage of college basketball home court advantage and how does it factor into handicapping games?
