How to bet on College Basketball in Tennessee

You must create an online sportsbook account to place an online bet on College Basketball in TN. Here's a quick walkthrough to help you get set up:

#1 Complete the Sign-up Process

All you have to do here is confirm a few personal details. Since you must be 21+ and physically located in Pennsylvania, this process involves entering your name, address, and last four of your SSN. You will also need to enable geolocating on the sportsbook app.

#3 Bet on the NCAA Tournament

Once you've successfully added funds to your account and claimed your new user bonus, the final step is locking in your first wager.

You can find a range of betting options on the NCAA Tournament at any online sportsbook in Tennessee, including odds on:

  • Point spreads
  • Moneylines
  • Over/Under totals
  • Props
  • Futures
  • Parlays

NCAA Tournament Betting Strategies

What makes the NCAA Tournament so compelling is the level of unpredictability, aka “the madness.” Top seeds have prevailed historically but it's still not uncommon to see many of them suffer early-round defeats.

Coming in with a March Madness betting strategy is a good idea. Consider popular betting trends, data, and analyses, such as:

  • Against the spread (ATS) records of each team
  • Over/under trends
  • KenPom rankings
  • How a team has performed against other top-tier teams (Quad 1 records)
  • Home vs. road records (remember Tournament games are played at a neutral site)
