How to Bet on College Basketball Futures

When you look at your annual sports betting calendar, March Madness is definitely at the top of the list and that is the major College Basketball event of the season. Individuals looking to place College Basketball Future wagers will either be alive or dead when this three-week tournament begins and some of the bets can return lucrative prices. While the single-elimination event is the “Super Bowl” of College Basketball, bettors can start placing Future Odds any time. If you've found some odds that interest you, check out our online sportsbook directory to find the best and most secure places to make college basketball bets, as well as exclusive sportsbook offers.

Similar to other sports, the majority of online oddsmakers post College Basketball Futures shortly after the conclusion of the season. The betting market usually gets a spike of popularity in May or June, which is when some of the top players decided to forego their college basketball eligibility and put themselves into the NBA Draft. Once a player decides to become a professional, he cannot return and continue his amateur status. Some bettors have a knack of forecasting who’s returning and leaving, which could create a huge advantage over the oddsmakers. Knowing that a team will be more experienced is a huge advantage in the College Basketball Futures market.
