T-minus two weeks and counting. Yes, indeed, the countdown has begun in earnest and in just a few short weeks a full blown basketball betting epidemic will overtake the country costing the US economy an estimated $4 billion or more as sporting fans across the land zone out of work and everyday life and zone in on the NCAA odds tournament.
Even though the calendar still reads February the symptoms of March Madness, basketball betting’s biggest event, are already starting to rear their ugly head. From coast to coast there is only one sporting event on the collective radar right now and this year’s NCAA tourney should be even better than in recent years.
Fans have seen the level of basketball betting competition steadily increase over the past few years in the Tournament. Much of that is due to the fact that players are now required to spend at least a year in college or playing overseas after high school in order to be eligible for the NBA draft.
As such NCAA odds fans get a look at freshman phenoms that in the previous decade would have made the jump straight to the NBA and have lighted up the NCAA tournament.
But March Madness is much more than just a few talented players. It’s about teams. And dreams and the reality that anything is possible when the Madness sets in. No matter what conference you’re from, no matter level of collegiate competition your from no matter how big or how small you school is, every single team is on equal footing when the Tournament begins and anything…anything at all is possible!
