Basketball picksMarch 3, 2010

What NCAA conferences do you bet on?

College basketball picks & NCAA March Madness picks season is a ridiculous time for bettors. It’s a marathon with betting opportunities every single day. Whether we are talking about a Monday night tilt between two Southern Conference teams or some late night Friday Ivy League action, there’s always something in the offing. One thing that I have seen too many people try to do is to become an expert on all of college basketball. Simply put, you can’t do it. Even Wundercat has no chance of doing that. With more than 300 teams playing, you’ve got no shot at knowing them all well enough to bet them for a profit.

So what do you do? Luckily for all of us, teams are paired into easy to follow conferences. My suggestion is to follow a few conferences and become the master of those domains. So you live in Maryland? Why not handicap the ACC and handicap the Colonial Athletic Association. This way, you will get your fill of Monarchs, Colonials, Terrapins, and Tigers. Maybe you can branch out and handicap some A-10 ball, as well. No matter which conferences you study, it’s clearly important to limit your work. The less you try to do, the better you will be at it.

Hey, no one is going to fault you for not knowing that Cal. State-Northridge doesn’t play well off of short rest in road games. Only the Wundercat and Wunderdog have enough time to keep up with these things. But if you are struggling to keep your head above water with bets all over the country, then maybe it’s time to scale back a little bit. Perhaps it’s time to change your focus and to start worrying only about those conferences that you know and understand. This way, you won’t get railroaded by betting foolish, unfamiliar territory.
