The College Basketball Season begins in early weeks of November and runs through the April. All of your betting wagers can be followed throughout the regular season and postseason on the VegasInsider.com College Basketball Scores. The Scores are easily followed once you understand how they’re displayed and the role of each betting feature. All College Basketball Scores start with the Matchup, which has a designated home and away team.
All Games are listed in order of Rotation that are set by the sportsbooks. The Rotation numbers are assigned to each team and it identifies the bet that is being placed at an online sportsbook or in a casino. Those numbers eliminate any confusion between the bettor and the sportsbook. Along with rotation numbers, games are also listed by time and the VegasInsider.com College Basketball Scores show the Game Time in Eastern Standard Time Zone (ET).
Next to the rotations are the Teams that are playing, followed by the Betting Odds. The College Basketball Scores uses a consensus line that is created by multiple Las Vegas and Global sportsbooks. The Betting Odds display which team is the favorite in the matchup and that can be determined with a minus (-) sign followed by a number.
Favorite Example – Michigan State -10
Underneath or above the favorite in the matchup is a three-digit number, which identifies the Total or Over/Under for the game. This is a wager that allows bettors to wager on if both teams in the matchup will score more or less combined points than the posted Total or Over/Under. You choose one of the two (Over-Under) and those wagers are extremely popular for individuals undecided on the point-spread.

College Basketball Results & Records
The team that’s favored in each matchup is determined by the sportsbooks and their oddsmakers. The team with the better record isn’t always listed as the favorite but that’s known to be a solid starting point. The College Basketball Scoreboard shows records for all teams in their matchups and they’re divided into two categories.
(Away or Home Record)
The Win-Loss is broken up by overall record and either the away or home record, depending on who is the host or the visitor.
The College Basketball Results on the Scoreboard help bettors determine whether they won or lost their wagers on the point-spread. The winning team is designated with a ‘red check’ and the ATS section determines the betting outcome. ATS or Against the Spread is a common term in the sports betting industry and those results are key for bettors. Along with showing the winner, the ATS Results section listed the word “Cover” next to the team that won against the spread. Since the point-spread is in play, the winning team with the red check may not also receive the Cover result.
For Total bettors, it’s clear-cut and those wagers are identified as Over or Under. Plus, the College Basketball Results show the combined points scored so you don’t have to do the math in your head.
College Basketball Livescores
Placing wagers on College Basketball is one thing but watching the events or following the Livescores is even better. The VegasInsider.com college basketball scoreboard shows real-time results as the games get underway. You’ll see how much time is left in both the first-half and in the second-half. If a game is tied at the end of regulation, the overtime follows and that’s updated in the Livescores as well.
You won’t win or lose your wager until you see Final Score posted and that’s when you keep your eyes peeled for the Red Check and ATS results for each matchup. If you’re unsure of how you won or last, the Livescores populates a Recap link and that insight can help your sports betting techniques improve in the long run.
