Fading or Following the College BasketballConsensus Picks
The College Basketball Consensus Picks are a great handicapping tool for bettors on both sides of the fence. Some users like to go against the grain and play the opposite of the betting public and those individuals are often referred to as ‘contrarian’ bettors. The bettors that often side with the higher percentages in each matchup could be viewed as ‘chalky’ players but we all know that favorites do win too.
Our advice is to take a look at our College Basketball Consensus Picks and then compare them to the data in the College Basketball Matchups index. If you tend to see a large following of VegasInsider experts on an underdog or under wager and the betting public on the opposite sides, then it might be a smart idea to back the VI handicapping stable instead of the masses.
