March Madness betting picks are always fun to handicap and so I thought I would do an odds preview for some of the teams. NCAA basketball might be the most compelling of all the college sports betting I do, and I think I ultimately prefer it to professional basketball.
Each spring, the sports betting world holds their collective breath for the beginning of one of the most exciting of athletic competitions- the 2017 NCAA March Madness basketball tournament. It is hard not to get caught up in the excitement of the players themselves, and all the accompanying human drama that goes with it.
And it goes without saying that it is also a great opportunity to make some money with March Madness betting picks. Over the next week we will take a look at some of the elite contenders in 2017, and will start with the No. 1 and No. 2 ranked teams in the country.
March Madness Betting Picks – Kansas Jayhawks
The University of Kansas Jayhawks are currently sitting atop the national rankings with a record of 27-3 and are 1st in the Big 12. The Jayhawks have battled with the Villanova Wildcats for the number one spot all season, and now seem to have clinched it heading into March Madness. In terms of March Madness betting picks, it is hard to not try and ride Kansas all the way until at least the Final Four.
However, a tournament format is a different beast than a season points race- so anything can happen which is what makes it so darn interesting. With that being said, you can count on Kansas going deep and they are currently +750 favorites to win it all. At the very least you have to have Kansas in your bracket.
NCAA Basketball Betting – Villanova Wildcats
The 2016 March Madness defending champion Villanova Wildcats are ranked No. 2 or 3 in the nation depending on the national poll. The Wildcats had a stellar season last year and of course went on to win the whole tournament. They are a must when it comes to your March Madness betting picks and I expect them to go deep in the tournament.
Now whether they can repeat as NCAA basketball champions, or even make the Elite Eight, remains to be seen. However, with a veteran core from last year’s championship team still in place they have the experience and the talent to definitely be in your bracket. At 27-3, Villanova sits comfortably atop the Big East Conference– and barring anything short of a Martian invasion should do well again this year. The Wildcats are a healthy +850 to repeat as tournament champs.
