68 Teams with 4 Networks Televising
The excitement of March Madness Betting starts with a “First Four” play in round in the middle of the opening week of the tournament which turns 68 teams into 64 for the opening weekend of games. CBS, TBS, TNT, and truTV all share the television duties as each game is now televised and can be seen. The opening round of the NCAA basketball tournament rivals the Super Bowl as far as public betting action and demand.
A major dynamic of March Madness Betting is a betting public that participates after not paying attention to college basketball’s regular season. March Madness is as much a pop culture event as it is a sporting event which often translates into a lot of ignorant money being wagered, especially in the first round. Traditional power name brand teams such as Duke, North Carolina, Kentucky, Kansas, and UCLA will command a lot of action from the betting public which means those teams are not always the best board values.
One of the big draws to March Madness is the volume of games on the first Thursday and Friday of the tournament as there are 16 games each day running from late morning through late night. Betting action takes place with full game wagering but also halves, props, and futures. This makes for the ultimate in action as games are on several different networks all starting at different times to give each matchup a chance for a few minutes of everyone’s attention. March Madness is a can’t miss and must see event that has it all!
