The game of college basketball is an exciting time in the sports betting world as it will bring about hundreds of games to choose and wager on beginning in November and lasting until early April with the NCAA championship.
With so many games at your disposal during the week, especially on Saturdays, the top-rated sportsbooks here at Wonder Punter are aligned in posting their own spreads and totals but more importantly along with that is accurate data on what the consensus is feeling on a particular college game. How are thousands of fans feeling when coming together to form a major consensus involving NCAA college hoops, whether it’s the spread, moneyline, over/under, etc.?
One important thing to note about a consensus poll on a matchup when deciding how to lay your wager is that many handicappers and sportsbooks believe that casual bettors (also referred to as “squares”) are wrong more often than not when it comes to trying to handicap a game; this is because squares seem to always just side with the favorites or are always bias with their favorite team regardless of who they are playing and the wagerline. What this means for you for example is you have to decide whether to follow suit with 83 percent of the bettors on a matchup or handicap your own prediction and go with 27 percent of the minority?
This is a decision only you can decide as it is your money, but it does serve you well to take all the important information, tools, trends and data of a consensus report by your favorite US sportsbook and handicap what you think is best so that you can be a consistent winner when it comes to going head-to-head against a sportsbook. Let’s have a great college basketball season and good luck!
