Tournament Betting Types
There are several exciting options to consider when placing a wager on the Big 12 Tournament. If you want to just bet on the overall tournament winner, you can place a futures bet before the games start. You can generally find pretty favorable odds on futures.
If you just want to bet on the games, consider:
Spreads: Which team will cover the spread (i.e, Kansas -4)? In this scenario, the favorite needs to win the game and by more than a certain amount.
Moneylines: A bet on which team will win the game outright. You will get better odds on underdogs here.
Point totals: How many points will the two teams combine to score? If you think there will be a lot of offense, you would back the over; if you foresee more of a defensive struggle, take the under.
