NCAA Tournament Betting Strategies

What makes the NCAA Tournament so compelling is the level of unpredictability. While top seeds generally advance deep into the bracket, it's not uncommon to see many of them bow out early.

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)
