Cybergambling Tip of the Week: Coming Out on Top during March Madness
Like Opie Taylor, this week’s cybergambling tip is short and sweet: If you want to make money betting on the big game, keep it simple.
Our Super Bowl hangovers have barely subsided and already it’s time to indulge in another one of the world’s most hyped sports spectacles: the NCAA men’s basketball championship tournament. And with big-time sporting events, comes big-time wagering.
It’s one of the hottest betting tickets of the year, and complementing the frenzy is always a whole lot of entertaining and intriguing betting propositions. If you look hard enough, you’ll likely find an array of wagering options ranging from how many foul shots a certain team or player will make to which player will score first in a game to how many times a certain team’s mascot will appear on national television.
Such propositions wonderfully add a little spice to the Final Four and other major sporting events from a wagering perspective, and following the aforementioned subplots certainly makes watching the games more fun, but if you’re in it to make money, steer clear of the “exciting” propositions. They generally fall into the category of what the knowledgeable sports bettor terms “sucker bets.” The odds of winning them bets are the pits.
I’m far from a sports betting expert, but I converse quite regularly with a few people who are, and the consensus has always been to stick with wagers that offer better odds. That means, in the case of basketball, stick with the likes of over/under and against-the-spread bets.
They’re not exciting. They’re not glamorous. But then again, neither is losing money.
