The calendar says March and Madness is in the air. For college basketball betting fans this what you live for. The few weeks in March and April when March Madness takes over and college basketball betting is king, if only for a few fleeting moments.
The basketball betting in 2010 should be as good as we’ve seen in awhile. The main reason is that the talent is as good, or better, than ever thanks to the NBA rule change prohibiting players from jumping straight to the NBA. As such top talents are playing for at least a year of college level basketball betting competition and March Madness has been much the richer for it.
But that rule has been in effect for several of the most recent bouts of March Madness Odds. What makes this year so interesting is that the competition is wide open. Sure, there have been several teams that have been dominant throughout the season (think Kansas, Syracuse, Kentucky) but past that the top 25 rankings have been a constant game of musical chairs and the world waits to see who will have a chair when the music finally stops.
Further, conferences that generally dominate the March Madness are having awful seasons. The ACC has a few good teams but none that will seriously challenge for a title. And the PAC10, generally the most successful of all teams in tournament doesn’t even have a single team ranked in the top 25.
And even the top teams like Syracuse have hit the skids of late losing 3 of its last 4 games.
Let the Madness begin!
